    You are welcome :)

    I am using both, Malwarebytes and WinPatrol and all of the Safer Browsing tools and I think it is a good combination. I never expired any problems.

    About FileHippo, I use it to check for outdated software but I always update the software on the good old manual way. One of the main reasons for this is, that I am using a German system and sometimes I get the setup files in english.


    I recommend to back up your personal files in a timely manner.
    Here I have a link for you on how to use the BackUp Tool in Windows 7

    If this message annoy you, we can disable it.

    Please go to
    "Start" --> Control Panel --> System and Security (Categories View) --> Action Center.
    Now in the Maintenance group you should see a Box with Set up Backup. Click on Turn off messages about Windows Backup


    Hope this helps
