  1. Thanks on more question then I done . Can I use a Ultra-1024MB in there or would it be too much?
  2. April 09 I have MBAM, SAS, and AVAST, As well as firewall. Mbam is the only program that is giving me a hard time about scanning.could I Please get some info on why? It's only on the Dell2350 not my other desktop or the laptop. Is there something missing from the program that I may need to add? Or do I need to post in Malware removal forum? Thank You
  3. I don't know if anyone is reading my post but I will continue to post until told other wise. The pc went hay wire,ie... slowed way down; not responding in certain things; not Running Any scans at all.. had to format from new then had to go to Dell sight several times because the drivers on the recovery didn't all work properly. (had a time getting back on the internet but finally did) After doing all this it started running pretty smooth,until I went and did a Cclean as I was told in another forum. Now we have reverted back to really slow this time AOL is not to blame. I under stand that it will be slow because it only has 128MB memory but come on my old Packer ran faster then this one and it(Packer)was running from modem. The Dell2350 is running from cable. Someone mention once about the cache getting full my cause it to run slow. I really don't know that much about it but I thought cache was suppose to help make it run faster by not having to "fetch request from the main storage that it kind of had its own storage bin so it wouldn't have to keep looking all over when you asked for it again. anyway I am searching around for answers about this if you have any suggestions I'd appreciate them. Thank You! BTW: Because of the time laps between the last several post,is the reason for the statement at the beginning.
  4. I downloaded MBAM from MBAM originally and it worked find the first 2 times then it showed an error message about a "Line" with no#'s at the end . I updated from MG site thinking that was the prob. It still comes up w/error(different no#'s) and when I try to find the file it comes up that it can not find it. could they have been pirated?
  5. oh! I also uninstalled aol. Now it runs a little faster then before WHEN it wants to.
  6. Ok now MBAM won't run. It keeps coming up with errors. I have downloaded and saved it the regular way and by changing the name to mb.exe . I've uninstalled reinstalled lets' see up dated I even tried to run from the file still get error. Any suggestions?
  7. Hey GT500, Thanks for the quick response. Yes I am . I just received a message that said to fully remove AOL and all it's add-ons and reload it but with out any add-ons to see if that helps. They also suggested to go off line and give the registry a good clean out after I have backed it up first and also the services folder(where would I find that?)
  8. OK I up dated aol and the pc and aol are still slow. Anyone.Anyone....arrghhh This is so frustrating.
  9. Hey YoKenny1 I agree 100% with you as far as AOL is concerned. As I tell my friends I Don't Play Well With Aol. I had some really bad times with them. She has Embark(use to be Sprint) but they want $50.00 for reg phone and internet hook up.( Gees I wouldn't pay that.) There's no long distance no caller id no.... I think you get the pic. She stays with her daughter who has Comcast cable but when I checked them out they wanted an extra $40.00 on top of her $70.00 cable. I'm sure glade i have Brighthouse cable where I live.(Ocala National Forest in Fl) Anyway I updated her aol hoping things would run a little smother until we found something else but it seems no better. I kinda hoped it would have been a little faster seeing how I'm running off cable but it isn't. I don't know why it still wants to run slow at start up.I've cleaned it of bugs (virus/malware)uninstalled a lot of old and unused programs, disabled some of her start up programs that she did not use or had use for. I know there are some things running that aren't being used or don't need to run but I'm not sure how to disable them and don't know exactly which ones I should if I could. I guess she will just have to deal with the slowness if I can't find the problem or pay someone $80.00 to look at it. Hey, Thanks for your help. I'll still look for her until we find something that suites her.
  10. Hey YoKenny1 I checked it out and it would have been good for her but when I entered her zip and phone # it said it wasn't in her area. But thanks anyway .I'm still looking . My son mentioned that I may be able to save her things to portable drive and re format the pc but the only thing with that is we would go right back were we started once we reloaded AOL again. I'll keep looking for something else. I told her about aol bogging down her pc and she agreed to change but it has to fit her pocket and her style of usage. She wasn't overly excited about the 4 hr limit ones. (can't blame her)
  11. Hey YoKenny1 Thanks for that info I'm looking in the yellow pages on line. I came across 2 of them online and was checking them out . Basicisp.net and Copper.net supposedly they are highly recommended by Viewers . I'm doing some complaint checks right now. I am sorry to here of your lose but like my friend said when she is gone doesn't mean she can't see what's going on it just means it's someone else worry and that she is on permanent vacation. What ISP did she have if you don't mind me asking?
  12. I have a friend who's only connection to the internet world is the Modem. She refuses to pay more than $15.00 because all she wants is to get and send email and once in awhile check something on the web. Right now I have her pc and am in the process of finishing the task of up dating and clean it. I did the best I could to speed it up but she has the dreaded AOL. (on top of the modem ) I need to find a provider who is good but reasonable to convince her that Her IP isn't the better/cheapest. Some suggestions would be helpful. Thanks. BTW: I'm dealing with a woman in her 80's to whom you better have concrete proof to back yourself up with or she flat out refuses to believe, and she knows when certain things have been removed or moved around. She will listen to what ever you have to say. (I have a little more pull then most of her family/friends when it comes to her gagets so to speak)
  13. working on friends computer. she complained that it would take longer then usual for her to log on to aol.(she has modem hook up) I reminded her that phones are slow and went to see. I realalized she was out of date on a lot of things. I took the pc to my place to run a check and see what needed to be done. After up dating the pc and downloading Avira, malwarebytes and spybot because she had none, I ran scans. I had to run av 4times 1 in safe mode before it cleaned up. The avira moderator is still helping me with that. (have one last file to check out ).The malware takes along time to come up on the screen and sometimes it is running but I don't know it until I click on the icon again thinking it never activated. I know that there are some start up programs that can be disabled and also some programs that are running that she doesn't use but I'm not to sure on how to do that. I've already uninstalled a lot of things that she doesn't use or needs. The other thing that I don't understand is that when I try to log on to AOL it's almost as if I was running from modem instead of cable. When I click on the ie the window pops right up. Any suggestions or advice would be good. Thanks
  14. my friends pc,she uses a modem and was 3years behind on up dates, no av protection went through tons of repeated scans to clean it up. I'm still not sure if it's clean. Thanks. I updated the windows, scaned with MBAM,SPYBOT, and AVIRA. If there is anything I missed please inform me.
