I haven't been able to log on here since I posted- literally. Not sure why but just another issue. Seems that I have to enter my username and password for each page I go to. So my apologies for the delay.I did resolve this problem on my own.
Turns out that I deleted the blue
items in RegCleaner by accident. So what I did was just restore some of the entries (I hadn't used RegCleaner in a while so it was easy to see which ones I had to restore. It appears that once I had started to reuse RegCleaner again I had begun to accidently delete the blue
instead of the green
ones. So once I restored these items- presto!- error messages disappeared. Big DUH. FYI
- the SHS is the self healing software that comes from my internet provider. It took me a little while to realize what SHS was.
ABOUT THE MALWARE REMOVAL STEPSI do want to add that I was unable to do the malware removal steps for the longest time.
Thanks for your help!
