Alright thanks,  whats your opinion on Chrome vs Firefox?  Is Firefox the more secure browser?

I use firefox because I like my toolbars for working lol. Chrome is also good but much more cut down on interface. Both are far better than IE and both have adblock add ons. SO try both and use the one you like :-)

My windows update auto update stopped working and i have tried everything to get it to auto update but to no avail.  It does manually update but i noticed a new file in my temps folder that i can't delete.

It's a system 32 called wuaucpl.cpl .  I believe this is a backdoor that is part of that Tilebot Trojan that another member mentioned i had earlier in this thread.

I did a reformat and have not even been to any sites that are even remotely questionable so i'm baffled once again.

Thats just the Windows control panel windows update icon. That is normal :-)

If your Windows updates isnt working run my repair tool on it.

Dell removed the page for some reason, so I found another one :-)

Hi Shane, i installed the free Avast and like it, however i have a question.  While doing a scan Avast flagged the files in the following screenshot.

Might be a false positive, might not. It moved it to quarantine, so let it be, but if you system has any trouble then you can restore those files :wink:
