Skype on Vista? Malware??

I have received two messages saying that my computer detects malware and I need to do something. Both messages have come up in the Skype window. I have Vista now. Does that make a difference? I haven't used the Skype on this computer, but I want to. Can you help me?

Sounds like it might be infected with spy-ware/malware or a virus! Get a program like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or AVG 2012 and scan you computer and see if it detects anything.

I get the message c:PROGRA~1MYWEBS`1ar.binM3PLUGIN.DLL when I start up Vista


That file belongs to the My Websearch toolbar, which is malware. If you have recently cleaned up your computer to remove malware, then a reference was left in Startup. If you have *not* recently cleaned up your computer, you need to do so.

I would suggest using Search and Destroy which you can get and use for free

This is a trap which you don't want to get caught in. Typically when you visit this type of site, the program you end up downloading is malware.

I would use your existing anti-virus software to scan our computer. If you don't have a good one, try Microsoft Security Essentials which is free online.

Vista... I am getting a message that I have a security problem. How do I correct this when Norton Protection Center is not detecting this and is up to date


Security alerts on Windows Vista Monitors the following :

  • Anti -virus status
  • Anti - Malware Status
  • Windows Firewall
  • Automatic Updates
  • User Account Control
  • Automatic updates
Make sure that all of those are up to date and enabled, if one of those on the list is not enabled or up to date, Windows Will give you a warning that there is a security problem on the computer. Go to control panel and go to the security center settings to check :

**Note : If you see a fake alert like the image below, it is an infection and you need to remove it :

Use this tool to remove the infection. Click the link and download malwarebytes anti malware. Install and do a complete scan on the system.
