I Just ran the OTC.exe by OldTimer and there are a few programs left after reboot. I'm not sure which of these I should keep for protection. I have Ad-Aware, Ad-Aware Installer, A-squared Hijack Free, Vtool folder, FIX WU Folder, Malware Bytes and AntiMalware, and Win32KDiag.

Should any of these things be kept for the protection of my pc?

Right click on your Desktop and choose Personalize.

Then, on the left, click Change Desktop Icons.

When the window pops up, make sure there is a check next to Recycle Bin, and hit OK.

Return to your Desktop, and it should be there.

Please consider updating to Windows Vista Service Packs 1 & 2.
Windows Vista Service Packs 1 & 2 contain all the updates released since the first release plus support for new types of hardware and emerging hardware standards.
It is now available via [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or as a standalone installation [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

================

Please download the newest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Before installing: it is important to remove older versions of Acrobat Reader since it does not do so automatically and old versions still leave you vulnerable.
Go to the Control Panel and enter Add or Remove Programs (Programs and Features in Vista/7).
Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Uninstall/Remove each of them.

Once old versions are gone, please install the newest version.

=======================

Please read the following information that I have provided, which will help you prevent malicious software in the future. Please keep in mind, malware is a continuous danger on the Internet. It is highly important to stay safe while browsing, to prevent re-infection.

Software recommendations

Firewall

  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: the free version is just as good as the premium. I have linked you to the free version.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: the free version is just as good as the premium. I have linked you to the free version. The optional security suite enhances the firewall by 40% increase. If you would like to install the suite that includes antivirus, then remove your old antivirus first.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: free and excellent firewall.


AntiSpyware

  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    SpywareBlaster is a program that prevents spyware from installing on your computer. A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
    Spybot - Search & Destroy is a spyware and adware removal program. It also has realtime protection, TeaTimer to help safeguard your computer against spyware. (The link for Spybot - Search & Destroy contains a tutorial that will help you download, install, and begin using Spybot).


NOTE: Please keep ALL of these programs up-to-date and run them whenever you suspect a problem to prevent malware problems.

Resident Protection help
A number of programs have resident protection and it is a good idea to run the resident protection of one of each type of program to maintain protection. However, it is important to run only one resident program of each type since they can conflict and become less effective. That means only one antivirus, firewall, and scanning anti-spyware program at a time. Passive protectors such as SpywareBlaster can be run with any of them.

Rogue programs help
There are a lot of rogue programs out there that want to scare you into giving them your money and some malware actually claims to be security programs. If you get a popup for a security program that you did not install yourself, do NOT click on it and ask for help immediately. It is very important to run an antivirus and firewall, but you can't always rely on reviews and ads for information. Ask in a security forum that you trust if you are not sure. If you are unsure and looking for anti-spyware programs, you can find out if it is a rogue here:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Securing your computer

  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites and other bad sites. This prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1, which is your local computer's loopback address, meaning it will be difficult to infect your computer in the future.


Please consider using an alternate browser
Mozilla's Firefox browser is a very good alternative. In addition to being generally more secure than Internet Explorer, it has a very good built-in popup blocker and add-ons, like NoScript, can make it even more secure. Opera is another good option.

If you are interested:

1. As far as antispyware and firewall suggestions above, do I need all of those or do I just need to have at least one of them?

2. I followed the directions via Windows update, etc. to get Vista Service Packs 1&2 and my computer does not even show an update failed/successful for 1. For 2, it seems to always fail, with about 12+ other updates. According to the site, I shouldn't do the direct download for just a single computer. Is there anything I can do about this? My husband told me over the phone that there has been an issue with those updates for a long time now and it is going to require some disk to repair. Is there another way?

3. The same Windows Defender error keeps popping up upon restart of my system. Can I delete this program from my computer without messing up anything else?

4. I am trying to update Adobe Reader but i cannot uninstall it. Do you know what this means?

1. No, just one of each.
2. Since it is more of a technical issue, I would recommend to post in the following section: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
3. You can disable it.
4. Try to install the new version, then attempt to uninstall the old version after.
