Wife's computer (home business), and I am the tech support. For the most part, I have been able to help here through some of the following issues:
- toolbar downloads
- virus scan popups on the internet that she has accepted (and subsequently downloaded malware)
- malwaredoctor (hated this one!)
But now we have an issue with Win32/Alureon.H - redirects only in firefox and has not allowed microsoft security essentials to update (error: 0x80072efe). Whether these two are related, I cannot say.
For Alureon, I have not done much of anything except to run SUPERantispyware.
For the lack of update for MSE, I verified that the internal clock was correct, fiddled with auto updates and re-ran, and a couple of other unsuccessful attempts.
Thanks for all advice and help.
