Just a quick question (or three:-)
I am thinking of uninstalling Kaspersky trial (almost over anyway and I don't intend to purchase) because it is really
taking a lot of resources and hasn't found anything related to my current infection. It did give me a notice that some -7-8
items in the 7zip that I have been using to save/backup items are
"Ligitimate program that can be used by criminals to damage your computer or personal data." Kaspersky
**Q 1 -- Should I do this uninstall of Kaspersky at this stage, and just a random thought that Kaspersky might
be keeping me from downloading FRST because Norton blocked FRST on my friends comp.
*Q1a - Would this be a good time to activate/purchase the full version of Malwarebytes. MWB hasn't found anything
during this infection either. However I have no other AV at this time.
Q2 - Should I turn off Windows Updates?
EVENT VIEWER shows that Windows Update Agent is still trying to download updates and at least half of these
attempts are resultng in errors.
Q 3 Would this be a bad time to make minor changes in network set-up. Having issues with an new android phone
in the household showing up as a 2nd ISP on the router map page - which i believe is making my internet service
more intermittent than usual. I intend to open a question/topic in the appropriate forum on the router problem.
It seems like the more I know, the more I know I don't know.
PS. I did get HIrens.BootCD.15.2Zip to download, by some hole in the hijacker's armor, on the 27th -- before
my post in the forum in which you started helping me. It is still in Zip form on the desktop. Would Hirens be
of any use to us at this point? (oops Q #5)
Thanks ... jesst
