Removing Java is a start.  The next thing is for XP to be gone or at least disconnected from the Internet and games played offline. 

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.

As indicated above, It removes FRST & the logs, backs up the registry and clears System Restore, setting a fresh restore point.

What would (will?) she do if (when) bad guys compromise her computer, steal her passwords, corrupt her data, and start sending spam and malware to all her email contacts under her name from your IP address?

The problem with XP problem is not just that her and her computer are exposed to security threats. The bigger problem is bad guys are actively seeking out XP systems to compromise then turn into weapons to attack the rest of us! :( They actively seek out XP systems to infect and use them to distribute their malware and spam, and to draft those computers into their "bot armies" to use in DDoS attacks to attack corporations, financial and medical institutions and other organizations.

These bad guys are very clever! More clever than most of us! They insert this cleverly written malicious software on to vulnerable computers, then remotely use that computer to attack the rest of us. But they do it in such a way the computer's user doesn't even know the computer is infected or involved in conducting such attacks. Much of this malware is cleverly designed to be as unobtrusive as possible so the users don't notice any performance issues at all. In this way, the bad guys can use one compromised machine to attacks 100s and 1000s of other machines - without the user being aware anything malicious is going on - that is, not until their friends, relatives and other email contacts complain angrily to her about the emails they getting under her name and your IP address, or until your ISP terminates your access because you abused it. :(

More and more security vendors and other software providers have ended development and support for XP, or will soon. Google Chrome ended support awhile ago. The current versions of IE don't support XP. Apollo no longer supports XP. Mozilla ended mainstream support for XP last year and all Firefox supports ends in June.

I totally understand the resistance to upgrade when something still runs like it always did. That is especially true when it comes to electronics - as it often just refuses to die. But there is a difference between still running and still meeting our needs. The computing environment has changed. It is no longer good enough for our computers to just keep running. They must also evolve so they can continue to protect us from today's "current" and tomorrow's future security threats. XP can't do that. That computer may not be infected today, but there is no way to ensure it won't be tomorrow.

As long as that computer has access to the Internet, YOU cannot keep it, or her, safe. The painful truth is she needs to replace that computer with new hardware that supports Windows 10, the only Windows version that is designed to "evolve" with the times and current and future threats - if for no other reason than to avoid being a threat to others.
Her only other alternative is to switch to one of many free Linux alternatives, or, as mentioned above, disconnect from the Internet.

If she needs to hear it from someone else, please let her read this post.

If she is using it mainly to get online, then Firefox works the same in Linux as it does in XP. The internet browsing is really the same. The one thing is Linux has a built-in firewall, but stealth has to be set, it isn't automatic. A Mac OS is the same?

I agree the XP software is a major security risk to use. Backup her files and get rid of XP!!! Linux Mint has security patches for Meltdown and Spectre. They have different versions.

There is a learning curve, but it isn't hard to use.

There are many more Linux versions, like Ubuntu that is popular, Linux Mint is a offshoot. Ubuntu tends to require more resources. Linux Mint is less demanding and supports lower power systems.

Thanks, G.  I hope you consider trying Linux Mint until such time you get a new device for Nancy.  You can create a portable version of Linux Mint to run on a USB.  See How to Create a Bootable USB Drive for Linux Mint | Techwalla.com

You dont know how much I appreciate the great love and concern about getting windows seven or 10 on this or buying
a new PC with a different version of windows, your all very very cool!!
BUT being retired has a great advantage in life...NO more working for the man and having scum bags just want to hurt you or manipulate
the system! NOW the downside the all mighty dollar that we all worship in some way(the root of ALL evil)! :)

This PC is just for updating sec/software at different forums....checking e-mail...low key stuff
My laptop(windows seven) is what we use for the private personal things in life.

If I could and all thumbs when I am directed or try myself to transfer or save and move all the cool and great things from this pc to a new one when the time comes and a PC fairy drops a load of cash or a new awesome APPLE laptop at my wonderful house it will be awhile for this to happen...

So in closing I am embarrassed I still have XP Homie and I understand all that.. and all you folks are so cool and I know what you mean exactly
I so much thank you all for this!! good souls are so hard to find these days but they are all here and at three other forums I fly to

thank you, Gordon

It really does not matter what it is used for. What matters is it has Internet access.

Something else to think about is malware commonly first looks for other locally connected computers to infiltrate. This is how big corporations, schools etc. can suddenly suffer from mass infections. Local traffic is seen as more safe.

Let's not forget that Windows 7 is already nearly 9 years old and mainstream support for it has ended over 3 years ago. :(

IMHO: Consider combining techie's and Corrine's recommendations.

She'll be running a safer operating system, and the "bootable disk" lets you leave XP in place and not "get your butt kicked". Once she realizes that the browser and email clients are pretty much the same, she may be more amenable to a total switch.

Yes, it is free. To use it, you merely boot from the USB or DVD.  Here is the Linux Mint Installation Guide:  http://linuxmint-installation-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html

Since Ghost is no longer with us ( :( ), techie, Pete and plodr are the most likely members to be able to answer Linux questions.
