Other than being unseasonably cold in my part of PA, we have no snow. Everything is green and this weekend my husband will try getting to the last batch of leaves in the shrubs while I put the outside lights on the shrubs. I refuse to burn any Christmas lights until AFTER Thanksgiving but since it will be about 17 tomorrow morning and 68 on Monday, I'll put the lights up when the temps are favorable.

You're welcome, Diana. 

We'll start with taking care of the tools.   

1.  Please download Delfix from here.

Ensure the following boxes are checked:
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create registry backup
  • Purge system restore

  • Click Run
The program will run for a few moments and then notepad will open with a log.   Please paste the log in your next reply.

2.  I don't know which specific malware was on your computer -- only that the there were several files that did not belong there and based on my knowledge, needed to be removed.  As to all the Google Chrome files removed, that was merely cleaning up the "extras" left behind when you uninstalled Google Chrome.

3.  It seems that much of your confusion is a misunderstanding of Windows 7 Libraries.  It may be helpful if you read the information and watch the video here:  Libraries - Microsoft Windows.

4.  Do you know what a "shortcut" to a file/program is?

5.  We'll need to take this slowly.  Thinking about your question about the Recycle Bin contents, do you know how to search for a file?  What do you find when you click Start and type Alexandria in the search box?  Edit note:  If search results show locations for Alexandria, please snip a copy and attach it.

Gotta love winters in the Northeast. Are you still snowed in?

A blizzard blew through Maine a week or so ago, and my folks lost power for 4 days. I asked them, "What the heck did you do?" They answered, "Oh, ya know, we just put on extra layers of clothes and cuddled."

Pretty brave for a couple in their 80s.

Do I need more coffee, or less?

Probably less considering the time where you are when you posted. 

plodr explained why you saw the image you posted.  What do you have as your setting for Windows Update?

Your coffee remark gave me a good laugh!  :laugh: :rose: Now 6AM here, and yes, now drinking coffee.  :wink:

To plodr, thank you! Light now dawns on Marblehead.  :wink: I hadn't considered that those pop-up windows could be related to using Pale Moon instead of IE. Then again, I've been using PM for quite some time now as my primary browser and don't remember this phenomenon happening before.

Corrine, I think that I have Windows Update set to manual, yet maybe it is set to automatic. I forget. I'll check again when I get back to the office in a few days.

From your shot it looks like you are trying to get to windows update through Palemoon.
In Windows 7, you get to Windows update through the control panel.

I tried update through Palemoon and was told to go through the Control Panel and allow certain activex settings in Internet Explorer.
