Windows 7: Malware

11 Nov 2017   #1

windows 7 32 bit

Hi to all,
Earlier I had a huge problem with 'windows security center'. I slowly deleted nearly all downloaded programs and took advice from several forums, when all everything failed I finally went to 're-image'. Wow! perfect, one by one re-installed programs, so far so good, but, when I ran 'Malwarebytes' it immediately removed 3000+ reimage files, anyone else had this problem? Are they not compatible?

I personally don't like Malwarebytes because it always run on the background.
I use SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloading File

For windows updates I've installed SP2 and now I only install security only updates
MS releases SP2 for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

MalwareBytes Security Software is not a complete anti-virus solution and should not be used in place of a good "traditional" anti-virus software. Thats is why i stopped using malwarebytes and switched on to comodo antivirus
