Security and Windows Vista

I had problems that someone told me that Malware Bytes would take care of... the trial version is free and it helped.  When the problems started once again I had to get the paid for version - back in Oct.  Well today I went online and there was a MB message saying I should check the box... etc.  But it does not work.  I spent several hours trying to fix it, and finally I deleted it from my computer.  Except that he would not go.  I get the message "he is not on the computer"... but it's always on the opening screen and control panel and it won't go anywhere.  I had to delete Mozilla Firefox because I couldn't use it because of Malware Bytes.  It's crazy.  I'm currently waiting for the help - hoping that someone will tell me how to reformat the hard drive, so I can just start over and reinstall Vista.  I do not have a more recent (Windows 10) but I learned not to use it again.  If anyone of you have any ideas on how to get off my computer from the Malware Bytes please let me know.  Thank you.



The free version of Malwarebytes is free to use as long as you want at the moment.

If you have problems with paying them for the version, you will need to contact their support.


You can try this free Revo Uninstaller program to remove it.

"How-to" instructions for use are included here: read the information on the tabs at the top.

See you soon.

  • Problem to create the Internet connection sharing between Windows XP and Windows Vista.

    Original title: Internet connection sharing between Windows XP and Windows Vista.


    Recently, I plugged a laptop running Windows XP to a desktop computer running Windows Vista using a standard Ethernet cable with the intention of use sharing of Internet connection. The notebook contains a wireless connection that I've routed to the office via the cable said.  While the initial phase of installation went well (I was too lazy to do it manually, so I just used the Wizard "Set up a home or small business network" Windows XP,) I had to turn off the host computer to install a program. When I tried to set up ICS again, I couldn't connect to the Internet by using ICS. After this failure, I tried to configure the properties of TC/IPv4 (IP, gateway by default, etc.) manually, but I still couldn't run.  I am able to access the shared host PC and client files. It seems to me that some service essential to the proper functioning of the ICS may be disabled in some way, but it's just speculation, as I have no evidence of such a service. Help would be most appreciated.

    Thank you


    I tried this before using a laptop to share internet with my 360.  problem is there was Nat on the router, and it is in contradiction with the ics.

    Anyway long story short I did some research on the Internet and discovered that if you're behind a router ICS will be confllict with her, as ICS also does routing. a much better option is to "bridge the conections ' on the laptop.

    If you go this route, you need to set a static ip address for the office,

    Either that or if you want to continue using ICS put the laptop in the DMZ in the router may help, but it will be less secure.

    Hope that this helped good luck

    Thanks for the post.

    Disconnect any attached external devices.

    If you use a third-party antivirus disable and then install updates and check.

    Temporarily turn off the firewall and antivirus software and try to install the updates.

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable the antivirus software. If you do not disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network at the time the anti-virus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    If this does not help, then I suggest you to put the computer in a clean boot state and then install. Start your computer in a clean boot state, you can reduce conflicts between software and help identify the root cause of the problem. You can read this article for more information:

    Note: after the resolution of the problem, reset the computer to start as usual. Refer to the step How to configure the computer to start as usual after a boot minimum troubleshooting under more information.

    Windows 7 is 6.1 internally (just a tiny 0.1 updated)

    As an example of the update minor: both use UAC, but Windows 7 student autonomous tasks the most initiated by UI so you don't have to confirm as often.
