DATAMNGR COORDINATOR HAS ENCOUNTERED


Depending on which level of risk of the Pup.datamngr virus has infiltrated your PC, you might find it is hard to get rid of this sophisticated worm. Some people have successfully cleaned out the stubborn worm, but since one of the primary functions of this virus is to disable security programs,so the method of using anti-virus program is not always a foolproof approach.
Please follow these steps to get rid of Pup.datamngr virus manually:
Step 1: Press CTRL+ALT+DEL or CTRL+SHIFT+ESC. Open the Windows Task Manager.
If that didn't work, try another way. Press the Start button and click on the Run option. This will start the Run tool. Type in taskmgr and press OK. This should start the Windows Task Manager
Step 2: Within the Windows Task Manager click on the Processes tab. Find the process by name. random.exe. Then scroll the list to find required process. Select it with your mouse or keyboard and click on the End Process button. This will kill the process.
Step 3: Delete malicious registry entries.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\random
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\run\random
Step 4: Remove malicious files of Pup.datamngr virus
C:\windows\system32\services.exe
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Settings\{F34C9277-6577-4DFF-B2D7-7D58092F272F} (PUP.Datamngr)

I think I may have a virus but I'm not sure. When I start-up it says "windows has encountered a critical problem" and then it restarts. But then it keeps restarting over and over and over again. And I cant do anything.


Follow the steps below to restore Windows then run your virus scanning software-
1. Shut down the computer.
2. Turn the computer on and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
3. use the down arrow to select "Safe Mode" and press enter.
4. Window is should start with a "Help" window.
5. In the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?"
Click on that and "Click to open System Restore"
6. click on that and a new window comes up recommending restoring to a previous state.
7. Click ok and the operating system should restore your computer successfully and reboot into normal mode.

Thanks

I opened an ad from a Canadian Pharmicutial and had a virus attach itself to my address list and sent all of my contacts this ad that I opened... how do I rid myself of this unwanted "virus" or worm or trojan????


Depending on what operating system you have you can scan for viruses or malware through an Antivirus program or if you have windows vista update and use the Windows Defender program it works very well to rid viruses, if not try to restore at an earlier date before the accident happened, go to start tab, accesories, system tools and system restore and go back in time to a day you can remember the PC being fine, otherwise you may be looking at a reformat , u might have to format the harddrive and reinstall your operating system.to clean out the viruses and malware.

I need to know which one it is in order to help you. You will have to remove the spy ware from your registry using registry editor. If you want more help on this let me know, you can also download Maleware anti virus to remove many bugs that other systems can't remove. If you can't get rid of it after installing Maleware bytes e-mail me at b123153h@yahoo.com so I can give you the step-by-step procedure I also need to know what operating system you are running..
