Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
I am running vista home premium wiyh sp 1.
I cannot download executable files and then run them. At the end of the download I get a message that windows has determined that the downloaded file is a security threat and the file will be closed. The message also gives me a link to windows mail, but I have not found that trying to change any settings has helped at all. I have also disabled zone alarm pro and symantec 360 version 2 without any help. I don't think my computer is infected. Can you help me?
Ok, the first thing to check is whether or not the system is infected.
Goto http://onecare.live.com/site/en-gb/default.htm and choose the Beta edition for Vista.
Follow the on-screen instructions and let this run (it will take a while, so you may want to put a film on). Keep an eye on it, as it may ask you for some actions. If nothing bad is found or after cleaning this still happens then please follow these next steps.
Did you install Service Pack 1 via Windows Update?
This has caused problems with alot of programs and systems, as it doesn't always install all the bits that your system needs. You need to uninstall the Service Pack. Please use this link to find out how:
Now the thing is, you really need the Service Pack. Once you have uninstalled it and restarted the computer, you need to ignore any Windows Update/Automatic Update messages that may pop up for the moment.
You need to download and install the complete Service Pack 1. Just click on this link and press download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b0c7136d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&DisplayLang=en
As this is the complete Five Language pack, 434MB, it may take awhile depending on your internet speed. I would recommend this anyway, as it would sort out any other bugs/problems that you may not have noticed.
Anyway, have fun, and let me know how you get on.
