Hi Essexboy. Here's my status:  About a week ago, I did a complete reformat of the HD, Win 7 has a built-in program to reformat and restore back to factory settings, which made it easier to rebuild. I lost my product key for the upgrade from Win 7 Starter to the Home Premium I purchased, so I'm stuck with the basics, but that's OK, it's the least of my worries.

For security, I downloaded Security Essentials, and turned on Windows Firewall, got Firefox and Sandboxie, NoScript, and a few other add-ons, tried to DL Adobe Flash Player and Java, but for some reason I'm having some trouble with them, though I disabled a few other add-ons I thought might've interfered. I didn't get Online Armor again yet.

I hope whatever prevented my updates from working properly is gone but a friend who has the same problem said Service Pack 1 is infected, he got that from some tech news source he knows about, so he said not to update anything connected with SP1. He had to reformat his computer twice. Although he has Vista, his situation is the same, that he couldn't install certain security updates, since about the same time I started having trouble with that.

My friend also said he thinks the personal files I backed up are OK. Remember I was afraid to use any of my backups? While waiting for you to reply again, I tried getting hold of my friend but due to each of us having some offline problems to deal with, we were unable to work on this together.

I hope I listed everything that's important; if I remember something else, I'll edit this message. I want to be sure my computer is clean. Maybe a way to test it is to get Online Armor again and see if that message about the corrupt file comes up again, but for now I'll wait to hear from you.

Thank you for all your help.

The SP1 infection is a fallacy .. If you get it from MS Windows updates.. I have it installed with no problem..

Lets check the services to ensure that they are OK



run farbar service scanner

Tick "All" options.
Press "Scan".
It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.

Please copy and paste the log to your reply.


What problem are you having with Java ? More to the point do you actually need it ?

I was having trouble with flashplayer and figured out it was an addon that was interfering.

I just hope my computer is clean.

I'll tell my friend what you said about SP1; been thinking about that. It's interesting that we had the same problem, but I thought, if SP1 were infected, wouldn't everyone have the same problem? I know what I have to do now, and hope all will go well.

Thank you Very Much for all your help. :thumbsup:

Something may be wrong, just noticed today: My clock got way off time somehow, I am suspicious. I don't recall doing anything to it but I'm sure it was on time. During the rebuilding process, I don't recall a need to adjust it, and I'm sure I looked at it a few times, it was OK till this afternoon. If I run a full scan it'll take 12 hours, maybe I should get that program I had before that helped fix that, trying to remember what it was, have to read old messages to find it.

I hope you're having a nice day, can't sit at this thing all the time.

Yes I was able to reset it, and it was OK even after reboot. This is very suspicious to me, I didn't do anything to it that could've caused the change.

OK, so far all is well. If it happens again I'll let you know.

Well I have some updates to install, will do one at a time in case something goes wrong. I'll report back here to let you know how it goes. My friend insists the SP1 rumor is true, knows others with the same problems, says he has confirmation on it. I'll be back soon, I hope.

He got the update from mircosoft.

I got some updates yesterday, tried installing the hidden ones, one went through, It was a big file so I let it go through by itself. When I went to install the other 2, they disappeared! It's happened before, I guess I had them for too long and microsoft had them expired, or maybe reissued in a new form, who knows, so I got the ones that came in after losing the 2 important ones I wanted, one was for security.

So far all is OK, but that one is the one I wanted to check on to be sure it wasn't the infected file, I have to look in my notes to check. I don't know if my friend keeps track of them and remembers which ones failed, which ones messed up his computer, etc. Since this trouble started for me, I've tried to keep a record of it so I can report the troublesome ones back to Ms.
