Posted 4 years ago duntstickMemberIt’s worth rebooting into ‘safe mode with networking’ (pc restart, then press F8 as it boots up) download MBAM,MBAM (free)Run it , then re-start PC when it finishes.BTW -1870 here Posted 4 years ago StonerSubscriberoddly, I just went to check and it said it was up to date on 1816. Have just forced update and now too am at 1870. Posted 4 years ago CougarSubscriberlinkedPossible, some malware will actively attack AV. Run MBAM as suggested above and / or an online scan at ESET. Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberCheers – I’m on 165 in Security Essentials. Will a Luddite like me manage to do safe reboot etc without resorting to crying? Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberGreat – now refusing to update at all. Posted 4 years ago duntstickMemberWhich is why you need to be in safe mode, dead easy. Make sure you do ‘safe mode with networking’ (comes up in the options) you can still use the internet and come back for help should you need it. Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberEvening all, anybody else having bother with it updating? Has failed to update couple of times now. It did stop a couple of trojans a few days ago – linked? Cheers, Niall Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberThank you duntstick – will give that a whirl. Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberWell so far tried restart and froze ‘updating window files’. Turned off, tried restart in safe mode – froze for 5 min. Now it’s checking discs :(( Posted 4 years ago duntstickMemberOh poo, is it Windows 7, do you have a disk? Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberIs 7, no disk – no optical drive. Passed chkdsk, just failed to configure windows features so reverting changes apparently. Luckily most important stuff backed up on Dropbox/ sticks. Posted 4 years ago duntstickMemberIs it booting ok now? Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberIt’s after restarting twice, both times updating windows for 5 minutes. Has actually updated MSE! Is it worth doing a safe boot and try MBAM anyway? I’m confused. Posted 4 years ago duntstickMemberDefinitely Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberCheers, will try again. Posted 4 years ago northshoreniallSubscriberQuick scan done – nothing found thankfully. Will do full one tomorrow. Thanks for all the help.
