    Hi, I am jimmy,


    a long time ago I installed BitDefender cause I wanted to check which is better of the twowin defender and bit defender the installation of bitD was a little weird but after the install, I scanned the PC and found a ton of viruses so after deleting all the threads I called it for the day. The other day I wanted to uninstall bitD and stick with winD but it took like 45 minutes to do that I was worried but after it ended I wanted to check on winD but it was blank nothing was showing no icons anything at all and windows update was corrupted it kept giving me some error codes i search them on the Microsoft assistant page and it kept giving me commands like restore health and scf scan but it done nothink i opened the control pannel and bit defender and bit defender agent was still installed so i unistalled them nothink happend the problem was not fixed so i got to the bit defender page and found some removal tools for it i installed every one of those but it said that i finished with errors so what i did is found a file called "Bitdefender Antivirus Free" in this directory "C:\Program Files" i cound not delete it for some reason so i held the shift key right clicked on the folder and cliked delete but there was an other error and it said this "The action can't be completed because the file is open in PresentMon_x64.exe" the file was called antimalware-provider64.dll and here is its directory "C:\Program Files\Bitdefender Antivirus Free\bdamsi\264753142589852704" please help me me pc now does not have any proted and i cant download any windows update any help will be apprecheated thank you.

    SEtting up automatic updates for windows defender on windows 8

    I have found this on the internet en have set up a task for automatic definitions update for Windows Defender but a window pops up when this starts to run.
    Is there a way to set this without any window popping up so that it just runs in the background?

    Now I'm using
    "C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe" -SignatureUpdate -MMPC

    I'm currrently using it as described here:

    Microsoft Windows Home Server Corrupts Files

    Microsoft has warned Windows Home Server users not to edit files stored on their backup systems with several of its programs, including Vista Photo Gallery and Office's OneNote and Outlook, as well as files generated by popular finance software such as Quicken and QuickBooks. "When you use certain programs to edit files on a home computer that uses Windows Home Server, the files may become corrupted when you save them to the home server," Microsoft said in a support document posted last week. The document went on to list the software, which includes Windows Vista Photo Gallery, Windows Live Photo Gallery, OneNote 2003, OneNote 2007, Outlook 2007, Microsoft Money 2007 and SyncToy 2.0 Beta. Others programs, however, may also corrupt files stored on a home server powered by Microsoft's operating system. "Additionally, there have been customer reports of issues with Torrent applications, with Intuit Quicken and with QuickBooks program files," the document said. "Until an update for Windows Home Server is available, we recommend that [you] do not use the programs that are listed to save or to edit program-specific files that are stored on a Windows Home Server-based system."

    Corrupted file RAR

    If the archive has been created using WinRAR, why don't you try WinRAR itself? It has a built-in repair feature for repairing corrupted archive (ZIP as well as RAR). Follow the steps given below:
    • Open WinRAR application in your system.
    • Now click on File tab > Open or simply press Ctrl+O.
    • A small window "Find Archive" will pop up. Locate the corrupt RAR archive from your system directory and select it.
    • Now click Open button.
    • Click Tools tab > Repair archive or simply press Alt+R.
    • Again a small window "Repairing File name.rar" will pop up.
    • Now click Browse to select a location to save the repaired archive.
    • Check the box "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and click OK.
    • WinRAR will start repairing of corrupt RAR archive. Once it gets completed click Close.
    I hope the above steps will help you repair the corrupted RAR archive.

    Thanks.
