It depends on the infection. My first recommendation would be to ditch Trend Micro, and get a better antimalware program (it's not very good compared to alternatives). Much better alternatives include; 1. NOD32 (or if you want the suite, NOD ESS) www.eset.com 2. Kaspersky www.kaspersky.com 3. Avira www.free-av.com 4. Avast www.avast.com 5. Malwarebytes AntiMalware www.malwarebytes.org Each of these include trials and/or free versions that you can use to get rid of the infection. I'd also recommend following it up by posting a HiJack This log to one of the many support forums available, including TeMerc Internet Countermeasures; www.temerc.com/forums To do so, please see the following instructions; http://temerc.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=18 A list of other trusted support forums can be found at; Alliance of Security Analysis Professionals http://asap.maddoktor2.com

hullo there
if you just deleted the spyware just restore it from your trash bin but if you uninstalled it then you will have to reinstall it using either your software cd or its executable file.

Tip

The Best Free PC Security


Free PC Security: OS Microsoft Windows 2,000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7

These are the best free security programs that I have found that actually do get rid of mal-ware, spy-ware, viruses, and worms for free. If your security program is not protecting your system very well, or it is an older paid for version that is now out of date and will not update any longer unless you purchase the new version, then you might do well to download and install these very powerful and efficient security programs.

You should only have one anti-virus/anti-spy-ware program installed and running on your PC or a conflict can occur, besides the fact that there would be an un-necessary use of the system resources. If you remove your old security program be sure to remove it from the add and remove programs in the control panel (some security programs have to be disabled before they can be removed). Also mal-ware is not the same as viruses, spy-ware, or worms. Malwarebytes will not remove any viruses, spy-ware, or worms, and AVG will not remove any mal-ware either.

AVG-Free Edition will automatically update itself and run security scans, it can be set from the AVG control panel in tools, advanced settings, schedules. You should set up the schedule so that it will update and scan at a time when the PC is not in use (usually during the middle of the night).

Also be sure that the Microsoft auto-update is not scheduled to run at the same time that you scheduled AVG to update or run a scan, if it is then change the Microsoft auto-update settings to something that will not run at the same time that AVG runs, for example (evryday 9:00 a.m., every Sunday 9:00 a.m., etc.). You can change the Microsoft auto-update settings in control panel, auto-updates.

Malwarebytes is the best free anti mal-ware program that I have found, the free edition will not auto-update or auto-scan and these functions must be manually done, but that is trivial compared to the protection that this program provides. After Malwarebytes has been installed, update it from the update tab and then check for any updates, after any updates then run a scan from the scanner tab, and then select a Full scan for the first time.

If you are using Vista right click on Malwrebytes and select Run As Administrator.

To fully protect your PC, Malwarebytes should be ran anytime that you close your web browser and are done using the internet, you should run a quick scan and if any malware is found then you should also run a full scan to be sure that the malware has been completely purged from your entire PC.

You can also protect your PC from known rogue web sites by downloading and installing SpywareBlaster, it does not scan for anything, and it does not remove anything, SpywareBlaster will prevent your internet explorer from connecting to known restricted, harmful, or rogue web sites for an added layer of protection.

Download AVG-Free Edition from here;

Download Malwarebytes from here;

Download SpywareBlaster from here;

http://download.cnet.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=mncol

These security programs will do a very good job at protecting your PC from internet threats. I used to have to fight these threats all the time to get rid of them, on either friends or family if not my own PC, but ever since I have installed these three programs on my system, and that of all my friends and family, it has actually become quite boring and I almost miss the battles.

My PC always hang!


A lot of things can do this.
  1. Make sure you are running only one anti-virus program and one spy-ware solution and that it is up to date. More is not better, the similar products will compete and give false positives on each other.
  2. Make sure that there are no virus or spy-ware running on the machine. If you do not have a product to check I recommend AVG and Spy-bot because they are both free and are reliable.
  3. Run disk checks on your C: drive, scan it, and de-fragment. You can do it by right clicking the drive and selecting properties. It will be on the TOOLS tab
  4. Make sure that you have enough drive space. You must have at least 200MB free on the primary drive or Windows starts to lag badly.
  5. Make sure that you have enough RAM. Right click My computer and select properties. Many computers come with only 512MB or less of memory. You need at least 1GB with all the new patches that Microsoft has put out.
  6. Do not run an excessively large number of USB devices without using a powered HUB and make sure that the power supply in the PC has enough power to run all the devices attached to it. Most OEM PC's come with a 250w power supply, if you have added anything after market like Video or sound upgrades, you may need to take the power supply to 350-400w.
  7. Don't run programs that for which you don't meet the system requirements. If your running something like Mass Effect to on a Celeron it is going to restart and hang.

How to stop when i use the scroll bar the page from fluttering


Check to see if you have correct graphics driver installed- if you do its because your processor is slow OR your graphics card sucks. IF you are using an on-board graphics card (built into motherboard) you might consider upgrading it to a add-on graphics card.

How much RAM do you have? anything less than 1GB should be upgraded to atleast 1GB total RAM.

Last you also should run a general clean and remove ad/ware & spy/ware as well as go over start up programs that run in background- minimize the overhead your computer needs to just run to improve overall speed. (less programs running in background)

My Acer Aspire 3680 is extremely slow, breaking up, giving error messages. Started yesterday but has gotten continually worse since then.


Have you installed any new programs recently?
Definitely sounds like spy-ware or a virus, check your system out. If you don't have anti-virus software installed, go here:http://shop.trendmicro.com/trialpay/
and run the anti-virus scan. I'm guessing you've got an infectected PC. For a free anti-virus program, you can go here: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition If after running the anti-virus scan your machine doesn't run better, please post back for more suggestions and best of luck to you!

Laptop has become very slow, even though there is still free memory and i ran the defragmenter.


there is possibly a heavy app running in the background, for example virus and malware scans, if you are running vista then you will have to expect this
