With the Antispyware I do not use them at the same time. I use them one at a time. I scan with one then another then another. To see what they find. If one finds something I will usually scan with the others immediately afterward. If the one does not find anything then I will still scan with the others to make certain that they did not miss anything.
As for the McAfee viruscan I know it was damaged, because when it opens up automatically it said that it was not operating properly. So I tried the fix it now button. That did not work. When that did not work it said that it might be damaged or files could have been deleted. So When it came time to check for updates it reinstalled the Virusscan. Then everything in McAfee worked fine. So like I said earlier, either it got damaged during the virus scan and delete or some cookies or some files got deleted accidently when I did the hard drive clean up.
I have one more question to ask. but do not know if I should make a seperate post topic or just ask it here? It is about a software program called "Registry Smart". Recently Spybot S&D has been picking it up as a problem for my computer. Now my question is: Should I leave it go or should I get rid of it? Registry Smart is a registry cleaner and scanner. I am concerned that if I leave it, it might be the cause of my problems. Because with changing the registry it could cause problems like that or worse. But it could also prevent those types of problems also. What do you suggest I do?
Also, back to my original problem with the computer crashing. I will continue checking the data logs tonight to see what they say. I am going to check the Event ID's and the source, to see if maybe that might shed a little light on to why my computer crashed.
I will keep everyone up to date as to what I find out.
Edit: PS My Spybot scan turned up 2 problems that are quite interesting. 2 programs: 1)FakeAlert and 2) FakeAlert.cc There are 7 items under FakeAlert and 1 item under FakeAlert.cc Now what should I do about this? Delete it after Quarentining it? Could this have caused the crashes?
