Question about ASUS Eee PC 4G Surf

1 Answer

Spyware A spyware alert came up when I was browsing. It seems to have downloaded a W32 (critical) amongst other things. I did stop the download very quickly but not quickly enough I fear. I tried the EeePC support line which did not really help - one of the technicians seemed to think that spyware was a good thing to encourage on my system! Please could you tell me if there is Linux compatible anti-spyware available. Many thanks in advance Bridget

How to remove virus w32.imaut in windows xp and windows7


if it is 32 bit windows 7: Click:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix scroll down til you see a bleepingcomputer.com link in blue and save it to desktop then run it.
it may reboot. it should be usable afterwards and much faster IF you can get it to run try downloading it from another computer, also if it will not start try renaming it to 145. Most people that suggest reload are doing so to save time these are the ones that know what they are doing. As for the rest, they don't know HOW to remove the spyware. spyware has become much worse these days

My computer scanner keeps stopping in the middle of the scan.


I recommend forgetting AVG and Avanquest for now and downloading a strong anti-spyware application. You can find many for free. Good ones are MS Anti-Spyware, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Doctor, or SpywareBlaster. Go to PCworld.com for trusted downloads. It's possible the spyware is causing your scans to abort prematurely to avoid you being alerted of their presence

Spyware ??


I assume you are talking about free spyware removers, because "spyware" itself is free of charge!!
OK, so you think you are infected? Here are some freebies to help you out.

1. spybot search and destroy
2. windows defender
3. spyware doctor
4. spyware blaster
5. ad-aware 2008

Check the program descriptions to see if they will work on Win98, which I believe they do.
There are more, but this should start you on your way. Finally, most or all can be found at the following handy site......
www.filehippo.com

good luck!

Avg will not load


Uninstall it and reinstall it. You seem to have spyware that has taken it over and stopped it.
TRY ALL OF THESE THINGS. Sounds stupid but spyware takes many things to stop it. Spyware can do a lot of things and it takes more than one program to catch all of it. Spyware will shut one program down and another program will have to repair what the other one did not catch.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (Free window washer download.). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

Try downloading and running Spyware Terminator and Spybot Search & Destroy. Both can be downloaded from PC World for free. Be sure to update each program before you scan. If you want to try an online scan, try Trend Micro Housecall, which is free..

Spyware problem in Laptop Satellite M100


I haven't checked the link out but the chance of it not being a malicious site is too small to be worth bothering. DON'T EVER GO TO A SITE THAT POPS UP PROMISING TO HELP YOU OUT. My preferred anti spyware products are Spybot Search & Destroy and LAvasoft's Ad-Aware. If you can download the installation files onto another computer and then install and run them on your computer when it is disconnected from the internet and in safe mode, you are more likely to be successful.
