Odd that you get different messages for each file.


Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM PRO' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Delete everything it finds and reboot
then delete the old evtx files, and create new ones, and try uploading again.

Noel,

I just tried to do it again. I'm still getting the message, "missing security token". I ran the Malwarebytes program, and it found no errors or any problems. This is driving me crazy

That may be an Internet Options setting problem.
Please open Internet Options, and reset the following to default

Security tab - All zones (use the button)
Privacy
Advanced - Restore Advanced Settings (do NOT Reset Internet Explorer!)

Then try the upload again.

Noel,

I adjusted the settings in Internet Options, and I'm still getting the message about the token.

Kaktu,

I can download programs, but when I go to run the application I receive error messages. I have attached a screen shot of the message I received when I attempted to run the system specs program.

Please open Event Viewer, and navigate in the left pane to
Windows Logs\Application
right-click on it and select Save all events as.. and save it as Apps.evtx
do the same for System - save it as Sys.evtx
Compress both files and attach them to a reply - It'll be tomorrow before I can get to them, probably.
