Hello! I'm new here and I've found many posts helpful to me so far, but I think I need some personalized instruction at this point. I have Windows Vista 64 bit on a 2007 computer. I normally run my computer with Microsoft Security Essentials and things normally run very well.

I accidentally downloaded a bad file and AntiVirus Monitor appeared. I ran steps outlined here and removed it with Malwarebytes' in safe mode with networking, but upon return to regular mode later in the day, a Vista AntiSpyware 2011 showed up and rained on my parade. I went back, followed the same steps, and eliminated the virus, this time clearing all my cookies, web browsing data, etc., only to later get reliable ol' AntiVirus Monitor back and kicking an hour later in regular mode. I've again run Malwarebytes and posted my results. Could someone please tell me how to permanently block off this malware so I don't have to keep repeating this process? Are these new viruses, or did they enter my computer with the original infection? I'm no tech expert, so layman's terms are appreciated when possible.

Thank you in advance for your help! This is my first time here and hopefully it will be the last out of necessity.
