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

I need free spyware removal. where do you reccommend I go.


CNET has been offering free downloads at www.download.com for a number of years, I trust them to give me spyware free software and have never had a problem there. I use the free AVG Anti-Virus Free that includes anti-spyware prevention for the future. For now go to download.com and get a copy of Spybot search and destroy it is a very easy to use and a great program for removing spyware, another is lavasofts Ad-Aware, personally I use both and run them at least once a week. Here's a link to the Spybot search and destroy;

Popups of spyware will not stop coming up


You should back up your files (good idea to do this anyways) and then use the built in Acer Restore Program.

It's important to wipe your system clean any ways as part of normal system maintanance.

If you don't want to go that route then download

spybot

it's free and is very effective in cleaning off spyware from your computer.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

Antivirus will not update


You don't need any extra spyware, this could just create conflicts with the two programs. Try removing the antivirus and downloading the antivirus program again. Save the download to the desktop before running it. This sounds like the program didn't download properly or didn't remove or reset the upon renewal.

As long as you can use your mouse you can try this. You system should have a setting in programs - accessories - accessibility for an on screen keyboard if you have to use it. Try this, it might be spyware causing the problem. Spyware can do almost anything.

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 (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). 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.

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.

VIRUS INFECTION , YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED


this is what sounds like a trojan or for of spyware, probably disguised as a screen saver. If you have no anti virus installed download this programme for free http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#avg-anti-virus-free If you have no anti spyware programme download this for free. http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Edition/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5 on the laptop press Ctrl, Alt & delete or right click on task bar to get to the task manager and on the processes tab look for the scrensaver.exe or similair that is running, click on it and press end process. this should allow you to work with windows Install the programmes, then go to system restore tab in my computer>right click>properties>system restore tab and click 'turn off system restore'(this will stop any virus or spyware backups reinstalling). Run both the programmes and remove any spyware or virus. If it still appears you may have to uninstall it safe mode, which is press F8 key on start up and select 'start windows in safe mode' and run the antivirus and spyware programmes again.
