im having a problem with my acer aspire 1430, mainly with my internet explorer 9. i cant get it to store histories, ive looked up the issue and tried various ways to fix it, those didnt work,they were what the microsoft site had as fixes, and i tried to remove and reinstall the browser, i could remove it ok but the installation didnt work,

when i went to install it after uninstalling it it crapped out in the middle and i couldnt find it where i had before when i looked to uninstall it the first time, the failed install gave me enough of it to be able to surf and fixed the issue ive had with the favorites being on the right when i hate it on the right, it made it on the left but still didnt fix the original issue, and i looked in the uninstall a program thing on the control panel, looked in the unistall an update thing, ie9 wasnt listed there, so couldnt try unistalling it again, and when i rebooting thinking maybe that would help it,

the second it came back up it flashed a blue screen of death with what i guess is an ANSII code or soemthing all over the blue background, and said it had to shut down for its one safety. i had to go into safe mode to get to using it, and i was lucky that this thing made a restore point because i forgot to make one myself, i was able to restore it back to before i unistalled anything, so im back at the beginning, can someone help me to fix my histories issue?

ive tried to find the index.dat file because i was told by a buddy that nuking it would make the system remake it and fix it, but i couldnt find it, im posting links to pics to show what i tried to fix it and failed at, maybe someone here has a way to get it working

For starters, I would remove McAfee via the McAfee Removal tool, then I would remove Spy Bot Search and Destroy, then I would get rid of Zone Alarm. I would then use Windows Firewall and download a much better virus scanner like Avast, AVG, Microsoft Security Center.

Hello,

Just a quick add to the good advice above, if the McAfee Removal Tool doesn't remove McAfee properly (sometimes this happens), take a look at the McAfee Communities Thread which offers more advice on removing their product.

Hope this helps,

Steve

i gotten rid of mcaffee and spybot, but im curious about something, i was told that windows firewalls are never very good and i had some history in the first couple of weeks of having this pc, and zone alarm was on at that time, has there been reports of similar issues with histories and zone alarm?

Windows Firewall is quite good and very powerful. I would stick with it.

earlier versions of Windows Firewall didnt allow outbound blocking.

after remembering a case where i had to make a new profile on my old pc(a virus corrupted my profile, its like the profile i originally had had a stroke) resulted in an previous issue being fixed(a virus before that made me have to redo my xp operating system on that old pc, and after that i couldnt get star wars galactic battlegrounds to play online), i activated a guest account on this new windows 7 pc, and looked at its browsing, it logged my histories in the guest account, it took a second on a couple pages and they had t wait till the page finished loading to be recorded in the histories, but it recorded them, makes me think this is a profile issue, is there a way to diagnose and repair my admin profile?

You can go to user accounts in Control Panel and create another account with administrative rights. And see if the issues persists.

I run Three Security Programs, for the last several years, and have not had a problem

Daily Scans (automatic)
Avira
Microsoft Security Essentials

Weekly Scan (manual start)
Malwarebytes

I have used several over the years, and have found that this seems to be the best setup for my Computer. I was at one time running several, and spending hours just doing scans. Trial and error can be your best tool in PC security.
