Preferred Solution: Avira 2017 Edition

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Updated: Prior to submitting my post I was intrigued by the fact Avira Launcher is mandatory for Avira Antivirus.

"Avira Launcher is an important component of the protection package. Therefore, starting with the latest update, Avira Antivirus Pro as well as all the other Avira products require Avira Launcher installed to ensure their functionality at full potential and to stay permanently connected to the Avira Online Essentials Dashboard."​
Find out more: Avira Answers

To use Avira Antivirus, you are NOT required to create an Avira Account, but you are forced to use Avira Launcher, and not all products under the Launcher are free to download without an Avira Account.

In my opinion, Avira should allow users without an Avira Account to remove Avira Launcher from their systems.

Original: Statement retracted following updated infomation.
Reading the comments about Avira 2017 being bundled with bloatware (Avira Launcher, Phantom VPN and Speedup demo), there is a way to download Avira Free Antivirus Free without the other software with a few extra clicks.

Go to Avira Downloads from the Support tab.

Pros
Includes password manager, software updater, and many other Avira tools. Excellent scores from antivirus labs. Very good score in malicious URL blocking test. Free.
Cons
Many components require payment for full functionality. Sluggish antivirus protection and scanning. Real-time protection missed some executable malware files.
Bottom Line
Avira Free Security Suite, introduced this year, packs a goodly collection of features beyond antivirus, but it doesn't come close to the power of a full-scale, paid security suite

So today, as usual, i brought my laptop to school and when used it for about 25 minutes. Once i was about to put away my laptop I used my touch screen to sign out It froze on me and wouldn't sign-out. I had to leave to my next class so I just closed my laptop and left./ My next period i wasn't using my laptop at all but it was in my backpack for 90 minutes. Once coming back to my backpack I noticed that my backpack was extremely hot i check my laptop and it was extremely hot. I could not even touch the laptop without burning my hands. I was able to take the laptop out with a paper towel and from there on held the laptop to try and get it to cool down. I opened up my laptop and it was on and still at the sign out screen frozen. I turned it off by holding the power button for a while. I let it cool off and once it was very cold i charged it. After turning it on there is no problems and its not overheating anymore. I don't know if this is a common problem or maybe i just did something to cause it but it isn't currently overheating anymore.

I've been using AVG Free Edition for a few years but the latest version gives me probs installing
and when it is installed the GUI is different and stupid. My last installed version included Zen/Anti-virus
but after uninstalling (wasn't an easy task) I can't even find a similar version or even this same version.
So, the heck with this and I installed Avast Free and it works like a charm.
Now I see Avast purchased AVG and keep both programs separate. But they haven't done that and I've
seen some components of AVG used in Avast if it is a certain version.
The only negative I see with my Avast is the high impact startup time but I can live with that.
I used to be a very strong advocate for McAfee until it became like Norton and so bloated.
This is mostly FYI so don't bust my balls for using free stuff as that is everything I have other than
the Windows 10 program. Actually it was free also upgrading from W7 to W10 and its stable as a rock.

Answer:AVG Free Edition 2017 Installation

For the record, AVG bought Avast, not the other way around.
I used to uncheck linkscanner from install, but I see, it is mandatory now.
You should uncheck junk modules afterwards, like linkscanner and email scanner.
If you try Avast, you should use Minimal Setup and then do those things afterwards:

Code:
Disable Cyber Capture & Reputation Services & Sharing Personal Info / Enable PUP, Hardened & Silent Mode / Set popups to 1 sec

After multiple failed attempts to coax my Z800 to recognize 100% of the 3TB on my SATA storage drives, instead of 2TB, (http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z800-Max-Disk-Size/...)  I've decided to simply buy a PCIe card w/ SATA/SAS ports.  The posts I've seen so far on the subject are a bit dated, so I'm asking for what to consider and for recommendations.  For instance, are certain cards known to be incompatible?   Or, what landmines exist?  In this case, should I verify that the card has 1 channel per port (<- I think that is the correct terminology...if not, bear with me).  Etc. With respect to my use case, the disks are meant as long-term storage with easy access.  I'll use other hardware for everyday computing, etc.  In other words, I'd like SATA III, but if the cost / benefit ratio is heavily skewed towards SATA II, I'm okay with that. TIA

I'm guessing we might be due a 2017 shipping dates thread now...  I ordered an X1 Carbon 2017/5th Gen (top spec except for i7-7500U & 512GB PCIe storage) in the UK on 24 Feb. The Digital River order status hadn't changed since then so I emailed customer services today, who said: "Unfortunately, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5G 20HR ordered is currently unavailable and, as a result, shipping has been delayed. Your new estimated shipping date is 31/03/17." Yet the delivery status on the UK Lenovo store still says "7 business days". It's not ideal for me as my X220 screen is failing, and may not last out another month. I think one or two people on here have received a new model X1C  - how long was it between order and delivery, and what model number do you have? TIA!

So i just installed all my apps and games to the laptop, and when running a game this "gaming" oriented laptop slow considerably down when on battery. When its plugged in the GTX1060 runs games perfectly, but not for some reason wen its plugged. I read somewhere that some gaming laptops require a machine to be plugged in to run games well, but not sure if its the case here or if i am missing something else. The laptop uses nvidia optimus, but when i go to geforce1060 properties i see that it is still running on gtx1060 and not the intel integrated one on battery, so i don't understand why the laptop slows down. I feel its a general slowing down of computer, since i think other tasks on the computer slow a little bit too, not just the gaming. Anyone know what is going on, and what can be the cause of this. At this stage im wondering if there is an actual problem with the laptop or if this is "normal" behaviour. Also if anyone has a fix, i would greatly appreciate.

Sound kinda normal to me. When your laptop is running on battery it is probably switched to a power profile that throttles the CPU/GPU, to stretch the run time. You could go into the power management and change it to "performance" (it's probably on "balanced" now) You can get utils that will show your clock rates and then you could compare DC vs. AC

I'm a bit unsure where to place this thread, but I'll go for here...

I use Avira AntiVir, and it has a habit that everytime it updates, it doesn't restart after the update is preformed, as it is supposed to do. This occurred rarely in the past, but recently it has started to occur everytime it updates, which is almost everyday. When I restart the computer, it starts up as it is supposed to do.

Is it some malware doing this, or is it poor programming? Also, how do I put an end to it? It recently updated the license (it updates it even for the freeware version), and it also appears that it is trapped, so now it updates the license everytime it updates the program. Perhaps there is a connection there?
 

Answer:Problems with Avira AntiVir (freeware edition)

Hi Mithras,

Sorry I can't help you with your prob but I can feel for your situation. I had the same prob when I used that program. At first everything was great then this prob shows up

I finally un-installed the program and then reinstalled. That helped but finally went to a different program. If you don't receive an answer on this board you may want to try the software board, where others with the same condition may help.

this was the msg shown. to rectify this i turned off the firewall, but to no avail. I am able to access the internet without any trouble. the modem connection is fine, i checked that using ping on command prompt. the system date and time is accurate too.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

What is Ninite?
Ninite tries to behave exactly like a technical friend you've asked to install a few apps for you. This means that Ninite installers, regardless of when or where they were created:

Say "No" to toolbars or other junk
Always install the latest version of an app
Install the right 32-bit or 64-bit version for a PC
Install apps in the PC's language
Skip apps that are already up-to-date
Upgrade an app if it's out of date
We put a ton of effort into making sure Ninite just does the right thing and we think that's a big reason why people like using it so much.

Learn more at How Ninite Works | Ninite Help

As requested.

1. Selected Avira from the Ninite homepage and continued to download.


2. UAC confirmation of Avira from Ninite.com


3. Ninite automatically downloads and installs the software with no user interaction. (It does the work for you!)


4. Avira Antivirus opens without Avira Connect (or other promoted software) - just the AV!


5. A clean Start-up, Installed Programs and Start Menu.

The Avira manual update tool, also known as the Fusebundle Generator, allows you to create an entire antivirus update archive incrementally. In other words, you no longer have to download an entire archive for each engine and signature update.

Although automatic updating is the best way to stay protected, you can update Avira antivirus manually anytime. For Windows users, the easiest way is to right-click the Avira icon in the taskbar and select Start update.

You can also use our free Avira update tool to perform an Avira manual update. This utility creates an archive (fuse bundle) containing the latest engine, the Avira VDF update files and the corresponding Avira antivirus update control files (info.gz).

Hello,
I'm trying to push out the update for the CVE-2017-11937 and CVE-2017-11940 vulnerabilities through WSUS but I can't find the KB# for either of them. Anyone know what KB# these two have?

Please note that the installation packages for Avira Antivirus Pro have been replaced by a combination of the new Online Essentials Launcher and the Avira Antivirus Pro product (version 1.1.19) for the languages English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

This means that, if you install the bundle, the Antivirus Pro installation is done automatically. The beta license is installed automatically, too.

If you already have an Avira Pro but no Launcher installed, please download the Launcher installation file and install it over the existing AV Pro.

An important note to those testers who already have a paid license that was bought in a shop or online:

You will need an additional account for Online Essentials (my.avira.com). Please create a new account and use an email address dedicated to this account only. Afterwards, switch to Betacenter and change your email address to the same address that you used to create your "beta" account for Online Essentials.

Answer:Avira Connect (formally Avira Launcher)

this new launcher imo sucks. plain and simple. they are forcing us to take a audio grabber???? i mean really ... what?? in a av? and dropbox, toolbar, online essentials, and a new stupid launcher. this is a bad move for them. i have been suggested to by someone pretty high up there will not be a custom installer from now on...so you will have to take everything or nothing

Today I installed Avira free on my desktop computer and I noticed that there isn't web protection component without custom install. Does Browser Safety completely cover this component's function?

If there is a malicious element in a webpage, will ABS block it, or the URL must be generally blacklisted in Avira's servers as malicious so to be blocked? I don't know if this question has a point as I don't know if web protection component worked this way.
Any information?
Thanks.

Hello,
On my Windows 10 pro PC, I'm running (BDTS 2017 + Voodoo Shield Pro + Malwarebytes 3), and this combo is very smooth for me, but when I saw the results of MT tests here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Bitdefender Report - March 2017 and here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Kaspersky Report - March 2017, I think that these tests demonstrated that Kaspersky did a better job then Bitdefender
So my question is to know if it is a good idea to replace BD by KIS on my config ?

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

I've picked up a new customer with my IT Consulting business and the previous IT consultant implemented ESET NOD32 Business Edition and WebRoot AntiSpyware Corporate Edition

I've never used NOD32 in the past, but I frequently see it being recommended as a good product for personal AV use. I demo'd Webroot when it came out years ago but never administrated it.

I've spent a little bit of time with both products over the past few days. I've found things I don't like about the central admin of both, but the same can be said for every AV/AS product (and I've used most of the other ones) over the years.

I'm wondering if anyone has used/admin'd these in a business environment and has opinions on their effectiveness, resource use, centralized capabilities, overall quality, etc. I don't like having to run 2 separate products to do AV/AS as that consumes more resources. I'm like to get to 1 product for both. Webroot has a version that adds AV. Not sure what ESET has in terms of AS. Sunbelt-Software's VIPRE Enterprise has also gotten a lot of good press and I may consider looking into that. They are offering a $10/seat promo upgrade for customers using competitors products.
 

Answer:Any admin'd NOD32 Business Edition or Webroot AntiSpyware Corporate Edition?

NOD32 has such a low memory footprint that running a secondary antispyware program shouldn't hurt a system at all. Generally speaking, specialized programs tend to turn better results than suites (at least that has been my experience).

I am hoping you can help me. Quite some years ago my father installed Extensis Portfolio 5 desktop edition on his PC from a PC Advisor CD, and, to the best of our knowledge, registered it as advised on the CD (issue 78, Mar 2002) to receive a serial number and turn it into a fully working edition.
Is there any chance you would be able to provide a serial number that we could use to get long-term access to the files again, as we have re-installed the program successfully but are faced with the trial only option as the registration serial number has long been lost.
I would be very grateful if you could help.
Many thanks in advance.

I'm just wondering. Im using Avast! Home Edition for free, but my friend says that a paid antivirus/intenet security is better, he thinks that a paid is "Full" protection, eventhough i told him that avast! was aleady internet security and also an antimalware, and behavior scanner. I disagree with him but he keeps nagging, so im asking you guys what you think.

Answer:Would you guys go with Avast! Home Edition or Kaspersky Paid Edition

Both suites are okay. Avast! and Kaspersky have both high detection rates but it all comes down to the system resource usage. I have seen many posts that Avast! had a lighter load on a user's system. Kaspersky on the other hand seems to be heavier than Avast! It all comes down to your own decision though...

Hi all,

Now I want to format C: and re-install Windows - but I only have a windows xp home edition-setup- CD.

So my question is:

*Does the (legal!) XP MCE-key works with the XP Home Edition?*


Thank you in advance for helpful answers and/or hints! =)

Answer:Does Windows XP Media Centre Edition key also works for XP Home Edition?

Hello

The key you can find on the bottom belongs to the copy you got with your notebook and it is not a universal key.
Generally speaking you cannot use it to activate WXP if you use Microsoft installations CD.
You can try it but I am 99% sure it will not work.

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

Yesterday afternoon, I found a stand full of copies of Office 2003 Standard Edition labeled as "Military Appreciation Edition" at the Ft. Gordon (GA) PX. (For those that don't know, the PX -- or BX on Air Force Bases -- is the military equivalent to Wal-Mart: a store that sells just about everything.) The price for this "Military Appreciation Edition" was $59.95 -- and since I bought it on post, tax-free. Thinking that this was too good to be true, I tried asking a sales clerk if the Office MAE was a standalone or update version -- I confused her so much that I had to show her the MAE box and a box of the Std. Upgrade version to help her understand my question better. (There was another custormer, a self-proclaimed "computer expert," who was so confused with my question that he thought I asked if I could use the Office MAE to update Windows XP....)

Long story short: Has anyone here heard of a "Military Appreciation Edition" of Microsoft Office? And is it a full version of the Standard Edition software or an upgrade?

I tried going online and searching for information about the MAE (specifically, as compared to just Office in general), but my search results came back empty. I also tried Microsoft's website but it didn't mention anything about the MAE. My search at AAFES, the military's online store for the PX/BX, came up empty as well. And nobody that I know knew anything about a "Military Appreciation Edition.&... Read more

Answer:Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003 "Military Appreciation Edition" (what the...?)

While I have not heard of an "MAE" edition, I would surmise it is possible the only real "change" is the packaging and the price.

But if your really concerned if it is a valid copy, then you can call MS software piracy line at 1-800-RULEGIT and ask them.

Hi there- At http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad_X1_Carbon_5th_Gen it doesn't appear you can order a US Region laptop with WWAN.  Are the US models WWAN upgradable?  Am I simply missing something?  We nabbed a couple 20HR000FU but there no WWAN slot and no antenna pigtails.  I'm guessing we're sending these things back? What should be our strategy for getting laptops with functioning WWAN? Thanks!Ryan

I haven't used Mcafee in years, but thought I'd try out their new 2017 version for fun. It's fast, and much different than previous editions.

We should have some of you guys who are skilled at testing, give it a shake.

The new Box V2 includes all of these features, plus an enhanced assessment tool that scans for weak or default passwords and other vulnerabilities hackers could exploit.

New Features
Leverages heuristic data gathered by Bitdefender about what safe and normal network traffic looks like, should it detect anything untoward?exploits, brute-force attacks, port scanning?the Box blocks access.

Monitor where you enter personal information?such as address, Social Security number, etc.?and prevent you from accidentally submitting that data on fraudulent or insecure websites.

Improved Hardware
Dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor
1GB of DDR3 memory
4GB of eMMC/NAND storage
Supports Dual Concurrent 2.4GHz and 5GHz
802.11n MIMO 2x2 + 802.11ac MIMO 33 AC1300
Two 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet ports

The beefier hardware is designed to run more activities locally, from the Box V.2 itself.

Price and Licensing
The Box Version 2 is expected to retail in the sub-$200 range, and will go on sale later this year with pre-orders beginning in summer 2017. Bitdefender says it will likely keep both devices on the market to provide different price points. Either device comes with a free year of security coverage from Bitdefender, which will cost consumers $99 a year afterwards.

Both BOX devices are now part of Bitdefender Total Security 34.94 at BitDefender UK and provide consumers with unlimited lic... Read more

I'm sure there are similar older threads, but things change quickly for VPN services and extensions.

I have used ZenMate, DotVPN and GOM VPN extensions in the past. But it's been over a year, and they seem to have changed. DotVPN didn't require sign-up when I used it for example, now it does.

Which VPN extension (for Chrome) do you use/recommend in 2017
 

Answer:Which VPN extension do you use in 2017?

None of those, I use Private Internet Access. However, it is paid
It has an extension for chrome but I mostly use the windows app.

My favourite free alternative in Chrome used to be ZenMate. I have some friends who use Hola free vpn but I've never tried it so I'm not sure it's any good. Well, it depends on what you want it for.

Here is a Best Answer from a google product forum:

"When a Chrome extension is removed from the store, the developer of that extension can then submit a new version that doesn't violate the Chrome web store terms. If that new version is ready, they can submit it on his store dashboard page. However, because they violate the Chrome web store program. This extension will also get a manual review by a Google employee, to check if they meet Chrome web store guideline (that takes 48 hours). If OK, then you see the Chrome extension back in the store.

So the Wot Chrome extension is now safe."

Not sure if this is the result of the ?Creator Update or coincidental hardware fail.
Yesterday my HP6735S laptop running W10 Home since last year was offered an update from v1607 (I think) to the latest. I allowed this to go ahead and waited .. and waited for about 4.5 hours all told.
Eventually it finished and after logging in again it appeared to be working.
After being left for a while it turned itself off - as normal.
I then tried to turn it on with the following result:-
Blue power light ON
WiFi LED Orange (Off)
HDD activity LED flashing Orange (Normally Blue)
DVD drive seeming to try accessing (Empty at the time)
Display Blank
Caps Lock LED flashing occasionally
Pressing and holding the power button turns Off as normal.
Tried removing battery and starting with adapter - same.
Tried putting in W10 *.iso DVD - same.
I can read the HDD in a caddy on another PC and it seems to be OK
(Except the small (100M) system partition reports empty)
I have 3 normal partitions:
Windows 7 (~100G)
Windows 10 (~100G)
Data (~500G)
I usually had to select W7 or W10 at start up.
Unfortunately I cannot run your SysInfo utility for obvious reasons.
Procesor is dual core AMD Turion X2 64bit with 4G RAM (2 x 2G)
Laptop came with (250G HDD)/Vista originally which I replaced with XP.
The HDD was later replaced with 1T HGST and installed W7.
W10 was installed using the code from W8 (bought) as a dual boot.
Any ideas?

Hi all,

About a week after my last visit I noticed a browser hijack. I opened a page and in just under a second the browser loaded a page claiming to be a Firefox update page, and it popped up a download window asking me to download a javascript file. It's been busy at work so I haven't had time to deal with this, but today it happened again and I was in the middle of typing in another application when this download popup took over and I'd hit the spacebar before I knew what was going on. So now I probably have something malicious and definitely need to make time to deal with this crap again.

Here are the FRST and MBR logs:

Go to Tools
Go to Startup
Now double click each item. To Disable.
Leave only your antivirus enabled.
Then disable All items in your scheduled task as well.
Unless they are related to windows defender.Or your antivirus.
Reboot the machine.

ZHP Scan.

Please download Zhp Cleaner to your desktop. Right Click the icon and select run as administrator.


2. Once you have started the program, you will need to click the scanner button.

Hi, I just bought an XPS 8910 with 256 GB M2.SSD + 2GB HDD with 16GB DDR4 RAM.(Win10Pro) I installed whole necessary Sotwares, updates, etc.When I finish, I pluged in USB 3.0 Extern HDD (1TB)Then rebooted and started with Acronis TI 2017 CD.Till here everything works fine.TI does not recognised C:\ [M2.SSD] as normal but Extern HDD C:\ itself.So, I cant make any image copy with Acronis Live CDANY IDEA

Answer:M2.SSD Does not appear on Acronis TI 2017

The Chipset 8910 M2 drivers are not native to windows. You need to talk with Acronis about mass storage drivers.  There is support from Dell for Windows PE and DISM but it is not free.
Imaging using anything other than windows PE 10 and Microsoft Tools
is not supported by Dell or Microsoft. When you deploy a duplicated or imaged Windows installation, it is required that the System Preparation (Sysprep) tool is used before the capture of the image.
Dependencies
   You must run Windows Setup before you use Sysprep.
   You need a tool to capture an image of the installation, such as Microsoft DISM

Question: End of Vista 2017

I understand that Vista finishes in 2017. Can you expand on this for me?

I have Home Premium 32 bit at present and Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor seems to recognise only minor adjustments to be made. Would you suggest I upgrade now or wait until Vista ends?

Answer:End of Vista 2017

It will be just like XP. What it basically means is that there will be no updates from Microsoft for it. Vista will still work just like xp does still work.

If your happy with Vista then you can continue to use it for the rest of your life if you want.

What I recommend though is that do not use internet explorer use another browser. if you use it after the finish date as it will be vunerable and make sure you have a firewall and AV software protecting your system, but you should have that now anyway.
