After 8 years with XP, I bought a used Dell tower running Win 7 from a local shop.
They moved the XP machine's hard drive into the tower as a secondary drive.
The shop installed MSE as my anti virus on the Win 7 tower,
and made a data folder with a copy of the data from the XP drive
and put it on the C drive in case that old drive crashes.
The old XP machine used a variety of Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware programs that
were put in place by the Bleeping teams after previous infections. A lot of those old
files are on the old XP drive now in my new tower.
So, the question is, what if anything should I be running besides MSE?
Do I need MBAM or any anti-ransomware programs?
I also have a copy of CCleaner on the machine.
And, are there any files on the old XP drive that I should look for and delete?.
(including any of the old AV files or quarantine files or anything else Grinler and friends
would have had me install on the XP harddrive that are now out of date/irrelevant on the Win 7 machine).
