Hi Serine,

You computer is looking better, but there are still some items that need to be handled and then we'll see if Restore Points can be set.

You need Service Pack 2 for Vista,
Click Start, control panel, Security, Automatic Updates. This will allow the Operating System to perform all necessary update. Allow this to continue until finished. It is possible that several reboots will be necessary.

In the event that Windws Update is not working, you can download the update and manually download and install from here. Windows Vista Service Pack 2. Make sure you disable your Security Software for the duration of the install.

A newer version of Internet Explorer is available from here.

Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application.

Upgrading Java:

  • Go to this site and click Do I have Java
  • It will check your current version and then offer to update to the latest version
If you choose, you can disable Java from your system How to Disable Java in your Web Browser

You Adober Reader is out of date.

After the new Reader is installed, Open Adobe Reader X.

Click on the Security (Enhanced) category and Uncheck Automatically trust sites from my Win OS security zones.
Click on the Trust Manager category and Uncheck Allow opening of non-PDF file attachments with external applications.
Click the OK button.

Also, Make sure that you uninstall old versions of IE, Adobe and Java from your machine.

Finally, reboot the machine and see if you can set a restore point.

Let me know if you can set Restore and how all of the other work turned outl

I am a bit worried about updating to service pack 2 as many people have told me they had problems with it, I'm especially worried since if something goes wrong I can't restore my system to its previous state.

I cannot update internet explorer without service pack 2 so I haven't done that.

I tried to update Java which froze for half an hour while installing setup so I closed it using task manager. However, it showed up in my computer as a new program. I doubt it's fully installed though.

I have also updated my Adobe Reader.

Thanks again for the help and I apologize for the late reply.

Hi Serine

I am a bit worried about updating to service pack 2 as many people have told me they had problems with it, I'm especially worried since if something goes wrong I can't restore my system to its previous state.

In all honesty, your bigger concern is from from not updating to Service Pack 2. This is a posting from Microsoft...

Support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) ends on July 12, 2011. To continue support, make sure you've installed Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2).

Additionally, SP2 has been out for a very long time and any installation problems have been worked out. That said, even if problems do occur, the SP can very easily be backed out. Without SP2 the computer will almost assuredly become infected again. Finally, without SP2, you tie my hands and there's little else I can do to help with your issues. It would be the same with other areas of G2G and with other Helpers. We notice right away. I saw it in your first scan and was just trying to clear enough Malware so that we could do the update.

Let's also try one other check of the OS.

download WVCheck by Artellos from one of the mirrors below;
Artellos.com (exe)
Artellos.com (zip)
After the download, run WVCheck.exe
As indicated by the prompt, This program can take a while depending on your hard drive space.
Once the program is done, copy the contents of the notepad file as a reply.
