Hello,

I was unable to do ao system restore and view my email pages so I


"start, all programmes, packard bell security and support, packard bell recovery management, restore, completely restore system to factory default".

It worked, I am very happy.

I am able to connect to the internet, uninstalled Norton Antivirus that reappeared with the restore.

Downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials which completed a scan.

I will download Malwarebytes and I use that to scan once a week. I will download Superantispyware and perform a search once a week.

I noticed Windows Defender is turned off, should I turn this on or will the above 3 be sufficient?

Ok, I will leave Windows Defender off. Many thanks for the reply.

It feels great to have the PC back working normally again.

It is thanks to websites like this that I had the courage to attempt the reinstallation.
