As per your direction, I'm starting this topic of our other Vista computer which has numerous issues showing. We did get the free check done at Office Max with unrelated issues being reported there. Below are the first of the issues. I ran the TFC and MBAM with no malware reported. Belkin nor Comcast was much help either. My partner, Sonny has been offline for 6 months. We're now ready to do this. We can turn on the computer
