    I actually immediately called UPS and let them know. :)

    Thanks again, everyone!
  2. Thanks, everyone. Done and done! Everything looks...

    Thanks, everyone. Done and done! Everything looks good, from the various scans.

    How can I check my autorun/autoplay settings? What do I set to make sure a thumbdrive isn't run automatically? (I'm...
  3. Thumbdrive got virus/trojan on it: want to make sure I'm ok

    Hi folks,

    I took my thumb drive to the local UPS store for them to print out something for me, and they were nice enough to put a virus/trojan from their computer on it! :o: Ugh. I came home, put...
  4. Do they have a portable scanner that you don't...

    Do they have a portable scanner that you don't have to install? If not, how "clean" does it install and uninstall? I thought I had seen mixed reviews (?). Thanks!
  5. Can you tell me step-by-step how to do this (re:...

    Can you tell me step-by-step how to do this (re: running it from a thumb drive in safe-mode), by any chance? Also. why does it end with .COM instead of .EXE? And I want the .COM one, right? How does...

    I'm guessing I'm probably okay too... but the wrong address I typed in I think used to be for some kind of download site or something (I was just trying to go to an information site, but typed in the...

    Well, before I felt good but now I'm completely paranoid. All the suggestions about how to run browser more securely, etc. is way beyond me. I generally don't go to sites I don't know -- this was one...
  8. Thanks for all the replies and suggestions! I've...

    Thanks for all the replies and suggestions! I've bookmarked a number of them and tested the mistake url on them and it seemed to check out. :)
  9. I had actually tried that, but it didn't make a...

    I had actually tried that, but it didn't make a difference for me. It was a cookies thing, it seems. Once I turned on cookies, then clicked the thanks buttons, it showed that I was leaving a thanks,...

    Well, I thought I did it, but now it looks like all the official thanks I clicked on didn't take. :confused:

    Am I doing it wrong somehow? I just want to give credit where credit is due, as I...
  11. Well, crud! I thought just thanking in the post...

    Well, crud! I thought just thanking in the post somehow added it... so I need to go back and do it the right way for all the help I got. Sorry!

    And it wasn't a big deal really for me (really!), I...

    Hey, how do I get a "1" over in the # of times thanked now that I got tanked in this thread? :)
  13. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!
  14. Thanks for the reply. I'd like to avoid...

    Thanks for the reply. I'd like to avoid installing anything. Is there another legit/safe website that checks sites like the Norton one I listed? And/or is anyone willing to check the address for me...
  15. Possible to check website for spyware/malware/etc. by going there?

    Is there some way to check a site to see if there were any "baddies" on it that you'd end up with from just going to that site? I was trying to go to a certain site, and couldn't remember the...
  16. You're welcome! :)

    You're welcome! :)

    Update: Apparently, this error is normal and can be ignored:

  18. Thanks for the reply! I had uninstalled Spybot...

    Thanks for the reply! I had uninstalled Spybot and reinstalled (though not with Revo uninstall), and it didn't really do anything. But I can try it again. So if I download Revo uninstall from here:...
  19. Since this thread and the other one aboutu Spybot...

    Since this thread and the other one aboutu Spybot are basically becoming the same, I'm just continuing over there:...
  20. It sounds like the Spybot thing is probably...

    It sounds like the Spybot thing is probably because I don't have the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package needed for it anymore.

    1. How do I find out which one I need? (I did post over...

    ruirib and CLiNT! -- Update has been installed. (Just wanted to let you know...)
  22. I didn't actually remove any MS updates, as far...

    I didn't actually remove any MS updates, as far as I know. I had just removed the programs in Add/Remove programs awhile back. Of course, it would probably have removed any updates associated with...
  23. Even though it's a security update and not the...

    Even though it's a security update and not the actual thing itself? Why would a security update be offered if I don't have the thing it's for in the first place? Or am I misunderstanding something?...
  24. Thanks for getting back to me, ruirib! So that...

    Thanks for getting back to me, ruirib!

    So that answers #2 and #3, but what about #1? Should I (or do I need to) install that update? Why is a security update offered if I don't have Microsoft...
  25. Thanks for the reply! I read the thread, and it's...

    Thanks for the reply! I read the thread, and it's kind of what I had already learned from research, but seems to solidify it.

    However, it doesn't actually answer the questions I was asking. (Sort...
