Perhaps the scan was interrupted. Run it again and let it finnish all the way and see if that changes anything. Also, check if there are any updates available for the product.

Whenever I try to log onto a platform, it gives me the error, "OleRun error, please close spelling & grammar check first, and try again."

You need repair your registry (regcure) and scan system with antimalicious software like spybot & search and destroy,and some antivirus solution.But before you scan ,disable resident shield (real time protection),heuristic and check only system folders!
After that if you have problem again, repair your Vista or install again.

I need to stop this message from cyber defender from poping up on my computer

  1. Run Windows Defender from Start Menu.
  2. Click on Tools button. windows-defender-tools.jpg
  3. Then click on Options link under “Tools and Settings” section. windows-defender-options.jpg
  4. Scroll down the “Options” page, and uncheck the check boxes of the following two settings: Use real-time protection (recommended) under “Real-time protection options”
    disable-vista-windows-defender.jpg Use Windows Defender under “Administrator options”
    uninstall-windows-defender.jpg Note that both options MUST be unchecked for the Windows Defender service in Windows Vista to be completely stopped. Else, only real-time protection is disabled.
  5. Click on Save button.
  6. A “Windows Defender is turned off” dialog message will appear, confirming that Windows Defender no longer runs. Once the Windows Defender is disabled, it’s sort of been uninstalled too, as any attempt to run the program will bring up “Windows Defender is turned off dialog window and unable to proceed to Windows Defender main window anymore. windows-defender-off.jpg
