  1. Sounds like you did a Factory Reset, this would bring back all previous files / programs that were on the system when bought new. Check your user account to see if you are classed as User, Guest, or Administrator.
  2. I have no answer to that there are too many variables that could be in place, it's something that only you can see so you would have to keep an eye on it to see if it happens again. One place to check however, is the EventViewer, this would display errors that may have occurred and might shed some light on the issue.
  3. 2 things to try. 1. Restart your computer. A simple restart can do wonders to reset things. 2. Check that the bug icon in the task bar is showing and see if you can click it.
  4. Sorry to hear this cfowler, can you try to update via this method ; www.superantispyware.com/definitions.html Edit Seems like you posted the same thing on MBAM forums, a problem with your system or just spam??? https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/204129-unable-to-connect-the-service-please-help/
  5. Not sure what they were referring to in Firefox plugin, the only thing I can think of was the old superadblocker but I didn't think that even existed anymore (I could be wrong). If they used the SAS program however, it will remove cookies and cache files if asked to, maybe the repair shop allowed it to remove all of those without consulting you first. The chances are they are gone but there is a slim chance they are still in the quarantine ffolder of the program. How long ago did they repair your computer?
  6. There is some protection for certain ransomware for example; www.superantispyware.com/malwaredailyfiles/2017-06-27.html In this list you can see wannacrypt.exe you may have to go through the others to see what other ransomwares are there, but these are changing daily as are the malware codes themselves so it's an ongoing process. I would wait until someone more informed answers though, as they will have more knowledge on these matters.
  7. The updates go out to systems before the page is updated that's all.
  8. And make sure you Backup! Backup! Backup! It saves so much hassle.
  9. Thanks for the blog mention
  10. Instability would be the main one I think, having to at times re-install certain drivers especially network cards etc just because of an update. I also don't agree that it's faster than other OSs, if you get down to it you'll find by default it's set to hibernate thus making it seem faster but turn that off and it's no different. Also it's a lot more automated, I don't like that. I want complete control over my system which is why I'm sticking with Vista as a Windows OS and Linux mainly as I begin full (as much as I can in my work) transition. I honestly believe MS have shot themselves in the foot with their new direction, maybe they're looking towards the corporate structure more and if so great for them, but I think they are on the bridge of a market share collapse. My opinion only of course.
  11. I still prefer Deft
  12. No I don't really go in for pentesting, I prefer forensics side of things.
  13. No worries, no harm done. I've never used fiverr so I don't know what their SEOs like. The only reason I said about the review thing is because people see through it and that makes them think twice. How long have you been using Kali?
  14. I see you've removed the reviews, I take it I was right about the Alec wham thing? I also hope you don't use loic and you're letting your clients know that they will have to inform their hosting company that a ddos is about to be performed as a test otherwise they may run into issues with their host.
  15. I can no longer access your website, is that the one you're referring to? Nope not me. And I can access it now looks better.
