Best you start a new topic here
It's now a tech issue, and beyond my knowledge. So here is my closing speech
Congratulations, you appear to be malware free.
1 - Update Adobe Reader
Earlier versions of Adobe Reader have known security flaws so it is recommended that you update your copy
- Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs
- Remove ALL instances of Adobe Reader
- Re-boot your computer as required.
- Once ALL versions of Adobe Reader have been uninstalled, visit: www.adobe.com/uk/products/acrobat/readstep2.html and download the latest version of Adobe Reader
, after uninstalling Adobe Reader, you could try installing Foxit Reader from >here<
Foxit Reader has fewer add-ons therefore loads more quickly.
Delete the older versions of Java and download the newest.
Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components
- Close any programmes you may have running, ESPECIALLY your web browser
- Click Start > Control Panel.
- Click Add/Remove Programs.
- Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
- Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
- Repeat as many times as necessary to remove all versions of Java.
- Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
Then download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
(5th one down the list), which is JRE6u6
, and click Yes
at the page warning. Under "Platform" select Windows
, then check the box to accept the Licence Agreement
. Click Yes
at the second page warning before downloading the Offline file.
There is no need to download the Sun Dowload manager
but it is optional.
You may wish to keep hold of the Kaspersky Online Scan
as an extra on-demand
If not you can uninstall it through Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs
is a good program to keep. If you wish to keep it, use it to do a quick scan once a week and keep it updated.
Remember, only the paid for version offers real-time protection
Here is another free program I recommend.
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here
Make sure your Windows is ALWAYS up to date!
An unpatched Windows is vulnerable and even with the "best" Antivirus and Firewall installed, malware will find its way through.
So visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
to download and install the latest updates.
Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"
