rejected by Mastercard.

Netgear N600 router died. Under software control? For business reasons, of course.

17+V wallwart output.

Visited Buy Buy and talked to Geek.

Bought replacement router.

Followed Geek's advice and plugged desktop into Arris. Back on Internet Thursday aftenoon
.
Friday morning searched 'netgear n600 router failure'. Followed instructions. Router is working again!

1- Make sure the wireless router is turned ON.

2- Press and hold down the "reset" button on the back of your router for 30 seconds. The reset button is inside a very tiny hole on the back of the router. Please use a paper clip to push it for 30 seconds
Netgear N600 has big button for reset



Left of yellow connector.
3- Then release the button and wait 30 seconds.

4- Then unplug it from the electricity outlet, wait 10 seconds and replug it to the electricity outlet

5- Make sure the internet modem is connected to the "WAN" or the "Internet" port on the back of the router

6- Unplug the internet modem from the electricity outlet, wait 10 seconds and then replug it to the electricity outlet.

7- Wait 5 minutes (yes, 5 please)

Dr Richard Sauder first visited in about 1998. We thought he was from the government at that time.

Sauder and Payne had breakfast at the Frontier in 2008.

Sauder first related his technicolor dream of what he thought would happen if Iran is attacked.

Sauder came across as a complete nut case asking Payne about knowledge of tunnels at NSA.

We were in a listen mode with Sauder.

Sauder described a US nuclear carrier lying dead in the water, listing. smoke rising out of it, and sailors terrified of a nuclear reactor meltdown.

Iran builds life-size replica of nuclear-powered U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.

Tuesday March 25, 2014 17:27
Not only is malware written with bad intent, but it is often written badly. It can leave a mark on your computer's performance even after it's been removed.

The best and safest way? I’m afraid you’re not going to like my answer.

Nuke it

After everything that your machine has been through, and it’s quite a bit, I believe that yours is a scenario that calls for the ultimate cleaning.

What that means is back up your computer completely, reformat and reinstall Windows, reinstall all of your applications, and restore your data.

Buy new larger, faster, less expensive disk is our approach.

Reformat carries danger of losing something important.

Window 7 Lenovo G560 running xp disk was reformatted by Office Depot employees Joey Dias, José Dias, and Joe Crowder.

But only after Joey made recovery cds.

Joey [F, not M] installed Toshiba L505D disk replacement.

Other projects take precidence over malaware. But related.

http://www.prosefights.org/malwaretips/zenith.htm#gilg Book proposal.

Microsoft Security Essentials (for XP) will continue to be updated for at least another year, and other anti-malware tools perhaps even longer than that. Given the risk of secondhand infection anyway, you still want that anti-malware tool updated. [Microsoft warning of xp not being supported may a biz ploy to get users to upgrade? 7, not 8, of course]

Not getting what we paid for with credit card.



Microsoft updates and even Comcast Norton Symantec Anti-virus do little to keep our 6 xp machines running properly.

Malwarebytes is responsible for keeping our machines running!!!
Microsoft plans to ship the final public patches for Windows XP on April 8. After that, it will not deliver fixes for security vulnerabilities it and others find in the 13-year-old operating system.

The result, even Microsoft has said, could be devastating. Last October, the company said that after April 8, Windows XP would face a future where machines are infected at a rate 66% higher than before patches stopped.

[Plugging the security holes is Microsoft's approach.

Malwarebytes approach is to identify, then get rid the malware which is trying to exploint the holes.]

G560 may be working better now that MBAM [Malwarebyte Anti-Malware] removed Heuristics.Reserved.Word.Exploit.

Windows 7 Lenovo G560 running xp did not hibernate after Malwarebytes scan completed.



Log.

Reason for over 16 hour run time is that Norton report that it was performing a full system scan at the time Malwarebytes scan was running.

Malware is software. Nothing more, nothing less.

Software can be erased. This is important, so I’ll say it again: software can be erased.

At the worst, it simply means reinstalling Windows and your applications from scratch and restoring your data. [Yup. And swtiching to Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird.]

Malwarebyes and other malware packages may be the savior of Internet? And XP?!



Microsoft does a poor job of 'support', imo.

IE8 'spiked' by Microsoft on XP to promote 'upgrade' to 7 or 8?
7 is downgrade from XP. Reason XP doesn't run on Window 7 home.
Upgrade from home to professional required to run XP.

Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird is our solution.

College or University 'education' is an impediment to malware development.

Study of what's going on inside an operating system required.

How hardware and software vulnerabilities can be exploited must be focus of study.

Learning machine language of target micro/computer/controller must be mastered.

Universities and colleges don't teach this for many reasons.

Main reason is that faculty members don't have the ability or expertise for this type of work. Exceptions exist, however.

Hackers are good at what they do. Maybe better than those who try to stop them? :(

Malwarebytes I throw Malwarebytes Anti-malware into a classification by itself. It’s not really an anti-virus tool per se. In their forums, you’ll often see the support staff recommending anti-virus tools to install alongside Malwarebytes. But I can’t really call it an anti-spyware tool either.

What’s important is that it continues to have a very good track record of removing troublesome malware that other packages sometimes miss.

Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware comes in two versions: free and pay. The free version is a fully functional, stand-alone manual scanner. I often recommend it as an additional tool when removing malware or when malware is suspect. The paid version adds real-time scanning and scheduled scanning and updates.


Let's do it.

Purpose of resetting Firefox to find cause of Optional.BrowseFox.A evaded me.

Purpose of placing the files you had me place on the destop on Internet is so

BIOS infections

There is a class of infection that may potentially affect the BIOS. That’s actually stored in a chip on your computer’s motherboard.

However:
1. The chances are extremely small that you have malware that impacted your computer’s BIOS in some way. Seriously, it’s just not that common, so don’t jump to that conclusion.

2. Guess what? BIOSes are, at their core, software. That means that most BIOSes can be “erased” and re-flashed, restored, repaired, or reset.

After all of that, the percentage that remain unfixable is extremely small. It’s not what’s happening to your machine. Trust me on this.

http://askleo.com/how-do-i-protect-my-windows-xp-after-they-stop-sending-updates/?awt_l=9UCD.&awt_m=JU2RTbYxKJdfbL

So my knee-jerk response is to recommend that you update to something later. Windows 7 or Windows 8. Trust me, Windows 8 just isn’t that bad


Microsoft just announced that Microsoft Security Essentials will keep working well over a year past XP’s end-of-support date. That’s good news, but it does mean that when that additional year is up you’ll need to find a replacement for MSE. ...

So the combination of both staying up to date (to get the vulnerability fixes) and running good anti-malware tools (to block any attempts to exploit the vulnerability) makes a lot of sense in general.

The problem, of course, is that with Windows XP, staying up to date will no longer be an option after the cut-off date – those patches to remove vulnerabilities will no longer be provided, leaving your anti-malware tools as your only defense.

[Microsoft and Norton/Symantec did not catch the malware Malwarebytes has.]
