Hi gilly578...

Yes, just remove it again...if you haven't already. Then try the instructions I gave you again for hiding it. The trick is...you have to have it off the machine before you can hide it at the update site.

If you still have trouble with it, turn off automatic updates for the moment...until we get that one hidden, Open Control Panel and double click the "Security Center" icon. Click the "Automatic Updates" link at the bottom of the window. tick the button next to "Turn off automatic updates", "Apply" the change, and click "Ok".

Be sure to choose the Custom install option...that way it won't install automatically. Then click the link in the left pane for "Critical Updates". DO NOT check the box NEXT to the update. The box you need to check is UNDER THE UPDATE.

I'll stay with you until we get this problem taken care of... :whistling:

:) Finally :) I think I did this right

I rebooted and it hasnt reinstalled. I still have to download the programs suggested in the malware forum and do the restore point thingy.

But so far my system is working great :whistling: but im kinda afraid to go to any websites until Im finished. :help:

Should I delete the programs that I downloaded for diagnostics or just leave them ? :blink:

Thank Thanks Thanks Thanks

Good news!

You can remove whatever you don't want to keep once you've finished in malware. Everything running the way you like it now?
