Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Do you think you got a virus in your computer??????

If you ever were a victim of virus or malware infection you know how horrible it can be. May be you got lucky last time, may be you got away with minor damage. You can not expect to be luck all time. The infection may cause your computer to crash, loss data or not to function correctly. Let's take it this way, computers are just like humans they are exposed to infection but you have to be careful enough not to catch those. we do a lot of things to keep away from infections by washing hand with soap, taking bath everyday and changing dress similarly we have to take few precautions for computers as well. I will explain few steps which will help you keep your computer "healthy" and away from lot of trouble.

1.Choose a great anti virus product (one which I use is kaspersky internet security. I have personally used 15-20 products and I keep my faith on kaspersky)
2. Avoid opening emails from anonymous people.
3 Do not click on advertisements you see on the websites you visit.
4 When you install a software make sure that you go through all the prompts and not installing an additional program hidden in the menu.
5 Don't fall for the offer/lucky visitor prompts in the websites.

Please keep these things in mind while you use computer, this should be eough to keep your computer running for a long time without any issues.

This is quite a severe virus. Download Microsoft Security Essentials from the link below and install & run it, see if it gets rid of the malware.


Its not a good idea to plug in any flash or external drives to your PC until you have removed the virus as you will infect them too.

When I boot up my lptop, it is taking forever to load. Also when I log on to Internet explorer, it often times takes several minutes to load a page. Can you help me with this? Is there a start-up excellarator or something, that may be turned off? This computer use to boot up really fast.

What you have is a big-time clue that your system has been infected by a virus/Trojan horse
Rootkit/Spyware/Worm/Malware of some type.
The first step in tuning up a computer is ridding it of all Malware/Spyware Infection(s). The last
time someone asked me to tune up a computer like yours, my first Malware scan of the
system located 212 viruses.

Free Anti-virus software: www.download.com

Pick (a) Avast! or (b) AVG free anti-virus, and start your tune-up with a deep system scan.

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem (with all the pop-up messages that won't go away and the system keeps shutting down. Thank y ou.

You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,

'you may be a victim of software counterfeiting

OK, This is a notice from Microsoft. The validation tool thinks your Version is a counterfeit. It is not a virus, but is still a headache no less. It will not go away, we can't shut it off. The only way to fix is to reload with a valid code or call Microsoft to report it. I hope this helps :)
