Perhaps I used something else then.
No doubt you'll have looked it up.

I had a quick look at Wikipedia and it only mentions a Windows version of MWBAM.

I've used things like ERD Commander which give you a version of Windows that lets you boot the machine and read all the machine's NTFS drives without executing any malware on them. You can recover files and run Windows antil Malware. I think your Linux boot USB would only be useful for recovering files.

Upgraded my desktop from 7
Can anyone explain how to get rid of the Flash Player plugin Application error box that refuses to close despite pressing OK to close it as ii sits neatly in the centre of the screen.
I have resorted to dragging it to the bottom of the screen.

Or you could just do what everyone else apart from my nan has done already and download chrome.

I assume uninstalliing adobe and reinstalling it sorted the problem.

@onetrickpony - True - i still use chrome more than IE, and at the moment slightly prefer it. But forcing myself to use IE10 to get to know it.

Task Manager now has a startup tab. Click on that & you should be able to disable any Adobe processes in the startup.
Then a restart should get rid of it.

It appears that Firefox and Win 8 don't like each other Sad

I should have said Adobe Flash Player plugin that causes conflict when using Firefox.
A known issue apparently.

Again No problem here. But I had problems before the upgrade with flash and ie.
There is a flash uninstaller which does a total remove. Try that followed by an install.
