I also have Norton 360 - but am going to set the Max Secure spyware to only run manually and not at start-up.
Dear all - I need advice quickly -I have a Dell Dimension 8200 running XP. I downloaded and installed Max Secure Spyware Detector v 2.0 and ran it this AM. It found a lot of 666 pieces of 'junk' (I KNEW my computer was possessed) and so I clicked 'ok' to run the quarantine. As soon as it was done the following chilling message popped up from Windows: "Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain stability Windows must restore the original versions of these files. Please insert Windows XP Service Pack 3 CD now " Yipes! Problem is that I just downloaded Win XP Service Pack 3 yesterday afternoon and do not have a CD to reinstall files from.
Should I reinstall Service Pack 3 before doing anything else now?
Thanks for any/all help in advance. Max Secure does not have a live support as far as I can see and I have found CNET very practical and helpful.
