In all 12,200 Google results you can't find a single answer?


It's an Apple problem. From what I've read it's affecting Safari on Windows.

Solutions here: discussions.apple.com...

It is most likely because Safari.exe and WebKit2WebProcess.exe did not terminate and continue running after closing Safari in a previous ...
source

If that conflicts/isn't your OS then yes run Anti Malware software right now!

From a different computer get the Microsoft Standalone Security Sweeper (say that 10x fast
) and scan your system. It may or may not fix that problem, but its free and I highly recommend it.

Safari is not an operating system. From what I can tell you have Vista and should follow the instructions given in the help section. You may need to extrapolate some of the Help information from IE to Safari, but in general it is all about the same.

Edit to add: If you are attempting to switch to an Administrator account this can be done by either; going to the Windows icon (place where you got to 'Shut down') and select "Log-off account"/"Switch account", or by going to the Windows icon and at hte very top right of that newly opened menu clicking on the large picture you have selected to represent you. Here you will have the option to switch and manage accounts.

in order to use spybot s&d you have to right click the icon & "run as administrator" in vista & windows 7
even though you may be using an admin account, you will still need to 'run as admin'

You need to open Spybot as Administrator, then it will fix your problem.
