Last night I downloaded a new version of the Pale Moon browser from my Administrator account. After running the install, it seemed that everything worked fine and when I clicked "About Pale Moon", it showed that I had the latest version.

 

After trying to use the computer this morning, I clicked the Pale Moon icon and got the message that the program had been moved or changed and the shortcut was not valid. Strange.....  I attempted to start the program from the Start Menu, but I got the same message.

 

I opened Control Panel and Programs and Features and found the Pale Moon program. I decided to uninstall it and start over. I right-clicked the program and clicked Uninstall. Nothing happened. The program did not uninstall. I tried it several more times but got the same results.

 

Then I decided to do a System Restore from a restore point a few days ago. I ran the restore program, but after the computer restarted I got the following error window:

 

I turned off Malwarebytes and Emsisoft and tried again, but got the same results after the Restore program ran. I tried an earlier restore point but it didn't work either. I looked at the Advance Restore option but was concerned that I didn't know what I was doing and I didn't want to make things worse. If anyone has a suggestion as to where I can go from here I would appreciate it.

Okay...false alarm. I apparently didn't get Malwarebytes turned off properly. I tried that again and this time the restore worked properly.

Firefox works just fine in Windows 7. Using a Firefox derivative....especially Pale Moon which is based on an outdated version of Firefox.....is an

unnecessary risk.

Guys,

 

Thanks for the replies. I will probably switch back to Firefox.
