Ah I think it may be security overload.. I will need to have a read of the thread

Basically you need one Antivirus and one antimalware programme. As you have IE8 then there is no real need for either Spywareblaster or Spybot as IE covers those areas quite well now

So uninstall the following :

Spyware Blaster, Spybot Search & Destroy, Super Anti Spyware, Microsoft Security Essentials

And let me know how that affects the system

I uninstalled the 4 you said to and rebooted. Then a box came up (found new hardware) searching for drivers :upset: my heart sank for a moment there but when I clicked on it in taskbar, it disappeared. Have no idea why that came up. I will check out puter and do what I normally do and get back to you later. Hoping that having too much security is what caused my issues.

PS - Also once again after rebooting a box came up from ESET Smart Security that said Detected ICMP Flodding Attack then it gives an IP Remote Addy. What does that mean and why does it keep coming up?

Does it give the IP address ? As there instances where the router is appearing to give an attack and is an ESET thing

Yes it did. IP Remote Addy is 192.168.2.1

What really worries me is the fact that I just rebooted and Found New Hardware came up again SEARCHING FOR DRIVERS. Never did that before and I dont have a CD to put in as needed. How can we fix this Essexboy?

Does the new hardware state what it is looking for ?

The IP is for your router. You can disable the alerts by following the steps on this page post 4

Could you go to Control Panel > Device Manager
Look for a yellow triangle or exclamation mark
When you locate it could you either screenshot it or let me know what it is

Right click on the lower other device and select disable.. I believe this is related to MSES and it failed to uninstall cleanly

If you could do that and let me know if it clears it

Yes that worked :P Is there a way to fully unistall MSES so it would wipe out the yellow triangle/exclamation mark!

One last thing if you wouldn't mind Essexboy. I get this alot: Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection which could comprimise the security of the entire webpage and I always have to press yes or no. (this is when I bring up a bingo game in Facebook) How can I stop this altogether.

Secondly, the other one I get is: to help protect your security IE has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors.

OK for the IE bits

Go to control panel > intenet options > advanced

Remove the tick from warn if changing from secure to not secure


The second one I would not recommend changing, but if you wish to deselect check for certificate revocation


TO do a full uninstall of mse :

1. Download MSE from the website and save the file on the Desktop.
2. Open Command Prompt through RUN > CMD hit enter.
3. In the Command Prompt console type: CD %USERPROFILE%\Desktop <- Hit ENTER
4. Type: msse <- then hit the TAB button.
5. Depending on your Operating System, after hitting tab it should appear as below:

mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-xp.exe

6. Now put a space in between the whole line and put /U as seen below:

mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-xp.exe /U

7. Hit ENTER and this should uninstall Microsoft Security Essentials.

The 1st 2 worked. However, CMD commands did not. I followed your instructions but where you said to tab, it did not work so I had to hit enter which still didn't work. Are you sure it was Microsoft Security Essentials that didn't uninstall properly? Reason I am asking is, when I re downloaded Malwarebytes a box would come up and say I already had it installed and did I wish to override that with this install and I clicked yes. That happened both times I brought up Malwarebytes so thats why I am asking. I have sent you a print screen of CMD.
