    How can I remove malware from a computer with windows XP 32-bit? Using UBCD4Win? If yes, what plugins to choose to use with UBCD4Win?
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Do a search on my blog for UBCD4WIN, I’ve already made step by step instructions on that.

    but you said norton was crap… i don’t geddit.

    I still think Norton is crap.

    Although I still strongly dislike Norton personally I think what must be realized is that he added (2010 or later) which is to say the most recent versions have lightened their footprint and increased there capabilities and thus improved significantly enough to be useful. The other thing is unlike some other offerings Norton and KAV that he mentions offer a more complete solution than many, not to say they are necessary better, just that they are fairly complete suites if you will.

    Do you mean better detection or just new wishy washy optimization programs and better graphics?

  7. Tweak July 3, 2010 at 4:02 pm #

    I refer to slight improvements made in detection, maybe even major in some aspects, improved GUI for usability, and lower resources so that the system is not slowed so much as to feel several years older than it actually is, an overall improved product. I haven’t liked Norton for so long now but having recently seen some of their latest offerings I can say as a whole it has greatly improved. I personally at this point will not suggest or use it myself although I may change that opinion as time proceeds if Norton can prove itself to once again be as capable as other available solutions. At one time the choices were much less and people really only knew of a few large names like Norton and McAfee, that has long since changed, I am glad that Norton is improving because so many still reply on it at least now they are getting a better product for their hard earned money. As for optimization programs I am not certain to what you refer, I guess you make reference to Norton System Works type of suites but luckily that seems to be a thing of the past and proper offerings of protection is now the focus. Hope that better explains my last post.

    Hey Matt, what happened to you? Are you still making videos or what? What ever happened with Defense Wall? Are you going to do KIS 2011? Also heard that Comodo is coming out with a 2011 version… are you going to review that? I know it’s summer and you have a life and all but WE NEED MORE VIDS!!! ;o)

    I have something called “poimek.exe” in the list of processes and it seems to be consuming a lot of my CPU capacity (around 50 units). Also, within about 2 hours of my laptop being ON, my RAM (2 Gb) seems to be fully consumed and I can’t work further without restarting. This is a recent phenomenon.

    What should i do?

    I’m using VISTA Home Premium 32 bit

    The link for “MalwareBytes Manual Updates” doesn’t seem to work anymore. But i’ve found this:


    Should be the right one?
    (My comp is stuffed with malware – causing Black Screen. Thanks malwarekilla, i’m going to try your instructions tonight!)

    I spent 25 hours trying to fix my problems, so I could excess the Internet, and nothing I tried worked. After I found this article on google, I read it and took notes on how to use it (I had to go to the library to use a computer, because mine wasn’t connecting to the Internet) I followed step by step on how to fix it, and in less then 10 minutes my computer was up and running great. This is by far a great article, it’s 100% true, It;s so easy to use, you won’t believe it fixed your computer so quickly. I would give this information a five star rating

    Thanks for letting me know Jim! I’m glad you’re all up and running!

    2 questions, Can you use an SD card to create a bootable disk instead of a CD, if not, will everything fit on one cd or do I need more than one?
