    Still being plagued by M/S Protection tool on IE and FF.

    I talked with a Sweety in India for a couple hours this week and only understood about five words..... Ok, so she had a nice voice. But I really do need to get rid of the 'Tool' annoyance.

    Any fixes for dummies?:embarassed:

    A reinstall takes an hour or so if you're slow like me.

    If this is a ongoing issue that you can't resolve then you should backup your data and reinstall the OS.

    Before you reinstall - Boot into SAFE MODE and scan. Malwarebytes, or any other AV/AM (AntiVirus/AntiMalware) software can defeat trojans/virus/malware when they are using stealth technology.

    Most trojans/virus/malware use stealth technology today - It is *VERY* effective.

    Booting into SAFE MODE prevents the intruder from loading into the operating system at boot time which allows Malwarebytes to properly identify and remove the invader.

    Press the F8 key (very top of the keyboard) repeatedly until you boot into a black and white text screen that offers you SAFE MODE, SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING - Choose the With Networking option if you think you need to freshen up your Malwarebytes signature files.

    Then scan away and see if you come up clean finally. You might just be surprised...


    PS - From now on use the key combo of <ALT> + <F4> to close any pop-ups you get. That will help quite a bit as well.

    And after that rebuild install MS Security essentials plus Malwarebytes, then give your old data the once over with those before copying it back on to your new build.
