:confused:I do use Malwarebytes. But isn't that AFTER an infection?
I got Visual Bee when I downloaded Firefox.
It came with the browser.
MAYBE I didn't go to Mozilla for the download but do...
I had it and quit it when it got too complicated with "versions."
I now regret that. (I think)
I tried a couple months ago to install FF on this computer and got something awful called Visual...

I tried system restore from earlier date.
my last backup is REAL old.

Yep. That was part of what gave me the BLUE SCREEN.
AND... did not take out the update stuff.:mad:

I looked at that W7 link and it appears to address the problem, but it looks complicated for ME to try it.
Just scared since I got the blue screen of death last week from TRYING to eliminate the...

:mad:Link in OP says:
Where the hell does anything tell HOW to change the program?
I google "fix microsoft september update" and get to www.fixitnow
I'd sure appreciate knowing HOW to...

I did a previous thread and followed some leads there but it is STILL there.
I don't know what (or if) I should pursue any further.
a check for updates shows
"No important updates"

Until I hear DEFINITIVELY that Microsoft has regained its integrity and lets me use the Word Starter program that came with the computer, I will keep using Open Office and just have stuff in .odt...

I just checked MANUALLY for updates and see nothing available.

The 9/12 update from MSFT destroyed everything you aren't paying $99 per year for.
I have disabled ALL updates from the extortionist company.

Good grief! Now today I have jumped thru some hoops to remove hilited popups and ...THINK.... I handled it by disabling Tidy Network extension on Chrome and going into IE Tools>Advanced> and...

I disabled the Tidy Net extension. Looks like that may have been it.

I'm suddenly getting red underlined words in various forums.
If you put the cursor across them, they pop up some ad or other thing to click on. Which I don't.
Anyone know what to look for...

I sure didn't CHOOSE to uninstall Word Starter.
It was an auto update on shutdown last night. It's now set to NEVER update.
If this was a human, Microsoft would be an extortionist.:mad:

Gonna just go with Open Office and let it save in .odt instead of .docx.
Hope it doesn't screw up the files if I use as attachments in emails, etc.
I also changed my MSFT settings to...

Just did and got the dreaded blue screen. Safe mode repair apparently repaired the devastation whatever it was but I still
have no access to Word.
I can get a fake one freeware or go for buying...

All my Word docs are unusable.
Is there any way to get the starter back?
This is disgraceful for Microsoft.
Oh, I can pay for Office which I don't want, but the starter was fine for my use.

Well, several HOURS of a $200 ActiveX service I subscribed to to fix this crap ...SEEMS.... to have resolved the issue.
I've only had to call them back 6 or 7 times for correction of some issue or...

Oh, the damn thing CAME with the Firefox download.
August 17th, 2013, 07:18 PM
I have ONE site that freezes up my box on Chrome and thought MAYBE I would try Firefox again as IE mostly works the site fine but not always.
NOW I can't even dump Visual Bee even by removing and...
