  1. I am following MR C's (HERO MEMBER) "Preventative Maintenance Plan" and am at the point of using IE-SPYPAD to populate my IE9 and Google Chrome "Restricted Sites List" BUT IE-SPYPAD documentation states that they only support up to IE8 and Vista. I have Win 7 and IE 9. Also it looks that like the last time they posted to their site was 2008. I am using WOT so it's not a big thing but I would like to know how to do it anyway. Thanks, PG
  2. Maurice, I'm done and thanks for having this great Forum. Many thanks to CWB, dale001 and especially to Assassin7772. I'll be lurking and looking out for you! Serenity NOW Insanity LATER. PG

  4. Maurice, RE: Your issues Q. It's just questions as to how to do things properly and in the correct order. I have done most, but not all of what Assassian suggested but I will probably have more questions. For instance I am using the default Firewall and MSE BUT I intend to do more research and if I find better ones I intend to ask for help as to how to install them. MrC had some suggestions that I have not had time to look at yet. If you want me to open a new topic for each it's no problem. Just tell me. I will use the Security Check tomorrow and I thank you for it. Sorry for being long winded. Found it difficult to answer correctly. PG
  5. Hi Folks, MacAffe out! MSE in! MSN Firewall in. The BING cookies were there so was MacAfee Cookies. Deletet, but some just came back. Called DELL Support. Told him get ALL the junk off my PC except what I might need. He did a lot of stuff. Don't know what remnants are left. Don't even know what all he removed. The only one I remember was E-Bay. There was a whole lot more. Problem with Malwarebytes Pro which was why I called Dell. Problem with WTO. Said I needed IE 6 or > running IE 9. Quit after getting of the phone with Dell. I think MB and WTO will be OK Fri. I heard that CWB. Good night, PG
  6. Good morning daledoc1, Starting this AM step1 of AdvancedSetup post. PS did you know that DELL is now hijacking (for want of a better description) your home page. First boot they place a cookie that says so say you make your home page in IE options MSN as I do what you get is DELL.MSM.COM. They then add insult to injury by putting the PING search on your desktop with the only option being to click OK to accept it. No "OPT OUT" or "NO THANKS". Your only option to get the BING MSG off of the screen is to click OK, or, as I did research it and learn how to stop it. I haven't done it yet, but it is to delete the cookie, set your home page and restart. Just ranting. PG
  7. Admins, Please don't close yet. Trying to start out with a clean mean machine and not familiar with Win 7. Do want to post back results of advice. Thanks PG
  8. Assassian772 and Daletoc1 Thank you both very much for taking the trouble and time to help me out. I certantily have enough to get me started on the right track now. And CWB of course. Regarding the IE settings when using FF, I am almost positive that it was in one of MrC's recommendations that I read it but I can't find it again and can't remember what it was. I'll come across it again. I would like to keep this open so I can report back to you folks. Many Thanks, Pat G
  9. CWB thanks for the quick reply. Couple questions please. I know where to get WOT but not trafficlight? I understand that if I install FF i have to make some changes to the settings in IE. Don't know what ? Where in the sequence should I install MalwarePro?
  10. Thanks in advance. Just got a dell with macaffee. From prev topic started by Assassin777 think I know how to remove it. Should I remove it before or after I install Malwarebyts pro and MSE? Suggestions for a Firewall appreciated. After removing MacAffe is there a registry checker I should run? After getting hit by a trojan once I am now super security aware. Thanks, Pat G
  11. MrC is my hero. Anyone cann follow his instructions. Without his help I couldn't be using this PC to post this. I wish there was somewhere to make a donation to MrC and all the other great folks on this Forum. A lucky day for me when my son told me about this site. Congrats MalwareBytes. Thanks again MrC.

  12. That was it!!! Norton. I uninstalled Norton. Was going to do that anyway. Got the Internet back. Installed MSE and it found a potential. I took no action in case you wanted to do something with it. It is in C:\Program Files\Yes Trader\RemoteAssist\WinVNC4.exe. If there is a topic here about setting the settings on MSE and Exclusions for MalwareBytes/MSE could you tell me where I can find it. Thank You Very Much, You are the MAN. MrC for Pres. Pat
