Thanks Cassandra. I see my windows defender is turned off I'll have to turn it on.


I have Norton as my firewall, can I still use Windows defender and Malwarebytes?

Hi Again Jbill,

You caught me as I was ready to sign off.

You can use malwarebytes, windows defender and you should have a firewall, too.

I use defender and malwarebytes and together they catch allalware, but not Virus.

If you have a 64 bit OS, Malwarebytes warns of a false positive. It is called hijack.displayproperties. When you are given this warning, just set malware to ignore. You do this by right clicking on the warning.
