Looks like everything's working fine. I've started doing updates for Windows Vista since it's considered as newly installed, so there's numerous updates. I haven't tried updating to SP2 yet. It might take a while to do that.
I haven't encountered any errors yet so far. Hopefully things will run smoothly now.
Yes, everything's working fine now. I'll add those Firefox Add-ons you've listed.
Thank you so much for your patience and help. Really greatly appreciate it.
I think this is one of your longest thread.
I think i'm missing some drivers. My wireless connection is not working. The switch is already ON, but I can't automatically connect to the network. It's saying "Windows cannot find any networks". It was working since yesterday. I tried to uninstall Norton (which I think is bundled with Windows Vista), but it didn't do the trick.
I'm trying to search for possible solutions to the wireless problem, when my other laptop got infected by the Vista Antispyware 2012 virus.
How do I remove the Vista Antispyware 2012 error that I'm now getting? It's causing problems on the Firewall settings (cannot click On/Off) and Malware Protection (cannot click On/Off) and the Webroot scannng as well.
Update on my above query:
I searched and encountered this video, which is the same as what's happening to my machine. So I just followed the video showing how to remove the virus:
I was able to remove the Vista Antispyware 2012 virus.
But then I removed "enj.exe" during the process.
Is there a way to get it back or place it back into the system?
What happens now is that I can't open .exe files automatically.
Like if I want to open Firefox by clicking the shortcut, I have to browse and select the program to open it and choose Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe
Not sure if it was the result of deleting the enj.exe
And also if I go to Start/Control Panel/Security and click on Security Center, I'm getting the popup that says:
Application not found.
I also get this if I click on Internet Options (also on Start/Control Panel/Security). As well as (also on Start/Control Panel) Hardware and Sound/Sound, Hardware and Sound/Mouse, Hardware and Sound/Keyboard, Hardware and Sound/Phone and Modem Options, Hardware and Sound/Game Controllers
If I go to Control Panel/Security/Windows Firewall and click on "Update Settings Now" (firewall is not turned on so I have to update setting), I get this popup:
Application not found.
If I go to Control Panel/Security and click on "Windows Defender", I get this popup:
Application failed to initialize: 0x80070006. The handle is invalid.
Do I need to open another forum topic for this virus? Or can I just leave it in this topic?
