You should have received a set of restore cd's with your notebook. You can use them to restore the machine to it's factory state. Be careful, because by doing this you'll completely erase all your files and settings. Do a backup to an external hard drive before you restore your computer.

I am thinking of buying a tortoise. Before I do I would like to be more informed on what kind of foods they eat.

For the most part, tortoises eat a vegetarian diet. Dark leafy greens are ideal, as well as romaine and mustard greens. You can also feed a tortoise carrot, squash and parsnip. Try to avoid feeding them iceberg lettuce, there is little to no nutrient value.

Run your PC in safe mode with networking prompt as an administrator(because in normal mode the virus will not allow/let you to run a setup file if it's a dangerous virus).Install strong anti-virus like Kaspersky, NOD32 etc. registered version. Update the anti-virus in safe mode and also run.

I think it will help you.

Good Luck

Acer Aspire One Netbook has trojan hose viruses.

First of all, how do u know it has a trojan? Which antivirus are u using? Do u know whats the name of the trojan?
Most trojans can be removed easily with any antivirus, some are worst but our AV friends work hard on it and develop utilities to remove them, I dont think u need to reinstall windows xp, but in the case u would, u do need the cd to do it.

I just bought an Acer Aspire One Netbook. Maybe I'm just crazy but everything comes up but when I open a new window, for ex: and I try to enter my information to sign in, I am unable to type the...

  1. Apple laptops are beautiful, but I can't imagine the average user who spends all their time in the web browser paying 3 to 4 times the price of a netbook for a Mac laptop. Macs are brilliantly designed, it's true, but that's a hell of a tax to run Safari.

  2. Speaking of taxes, what about the Microsoft Tax? I'm already heavily infatuated with the current iteration of netbooks as represented by the Aspire. And they can only get better and cheaper over time. Imagine a machine with the same specs as the Aspire One but at $299, $199, maybe even $99. It's going to happen. It's inevitable. This is a huge opening for Linux; it's the ideal way to deliver a complete, modern web browser at nearly zero marginal cost to both the vendor and consumer.

  3. The booming growth of netbooks will keep Windows XP alive much longer than expected. As much as I like Vista as a solid (if not stellar) upgrade from XP, the prehistoric 2001 era system requirements for XP still make it a better choice for these kinds of devices. 1 GB of memory is roomy; a measly 16 GB of disk space plenty. Can't say that for Vista. No sir. It's also an opportunity for Microsoft to play games with the Linux market by reducing the price of XP to crazy low, fire sale, everything-must-go levels. But only for "select" and "preferred" OEM vendors, of course, not for the common folks on the street.
I won't lie. One of the attractions of this particular model is that it runs Windows XP, an operating system I, and every other software vendor on the planet, know by heart. It'll run whatever without me having to think too much about it. But I could easily see myself leaving some of that potential flexibility on the table if the price dropped to $199 or so. If it runs Firefox 3, or Chrome, or Opera, that's about all I need.

Acer aspire one under virus attack

Your best bet is to do the following;
1 download either SuperAntiSpyware or MalWareBytes update via the internet and scan the disk (these are excellent and both Free)

2 Remove any Malwere they recommend

3 If the message still comes up download and run Trojan Remover - this will remove it.

Then make sure you are protected in future by installing an anti-virus system like (if you dont want to pay) Avira or Avast or if you do Kaspersky or Bitdefender

Here are your links

SuperANti SPyware

Brand new gas stove. When oven is turned on there is a heavily gas smell.

There have been reports of gas ranges which have been installed with no leveling legs. (due to various reasons, like a new floor installed, but the counter tops stayed in the same place, so the range surface would be higher than the counter top if the legs were installed) In some cases, this results in an insufficient amount of combustion air for the oven. To test this, put the range up on a set of 3/4 inch or so blocks and try the oven again. Let me know how that went. Thanks.

Unable to do download any media files

Sometimes AntiVirus software, even from names like Norton and McAfee, falsely detect good software as a dangerous download. If the player is NOT brand new, never-been-used, and fresh out of the box, then I would format the mp3 player first to make sure that there really isn't a virus on it. If it is brand-new, then you can either turn off the McAfee or change the settings (temporarily) which lead to automatically remove threats - make sure to reactivate this setting once the software is installed. Alternatively (perhaps even a better solution) - you can download a clean version of the software from iRiver's website - their support is fairly good - just click the Plus 3 link on their new, simplified website.
