I need assistance dealing with recent IP blocks by MBAM Pro 1.44.

For the past 2 weeks, McAfee had SEVERE issues with DAT file updates for consumers (very long story).
During that period, I installed MBAM Pro on my PC for added protection.
Multiple quick and deep scans were clean.
The first and ONLY indication of any issue was an alert yesterday that IP had been successfully blocked 3 times.

I contacted MBAM Forum and they advised that I have my computer "completely checked" (whatever THAT meant?).

Overnight, I ran deep scans with all installed security apps (McAfee, Counterspy and MBAM). All were clean and there have been so subsequent attacks.

I was advised to install and run HJT and to contact you for assistance.

I read the long and (for me, with my limited computer knowledge) complex set of instructions.

FWIW, I am a VERY cautious and conservative computer user, have never experienced a malware infection on any system, and have never had to tackle something like this.

I didn't make it far through your instructions before a question arose, so please advise as to the following:

1) The HJT download site only lists Windows OS up to XP as compatible, so I don't know if I can install it on this Vista box (or on my W7 laptop)?
2) Should I install and run any other standalone AV/AM apps, such as SuperAntispyware, WinPatrol, SpywareBlaster or others?
3) Is all of this necessary, or am I just being overly paranoid and spooked, after 2 weeks of secuity h&ll with McAfee, the recent Aurora scare, etc, and this should be counted as just a close call?

I would sure appreciate whatever help anyone could provide, as this is rapidly becoming overly daunting for me.
