When you say the time machine i would assume its the system restore. You can click start then run then type in msconfig then click on launch system restore. Although there are some viruses that are still there after a system restore. YOu can try to use free trials from 2 that I regularly use together.

Virus or malware try AVG FREE for anti virus amd Malwarebytes for free should take care of your issue.

Down load the programs one at a time, install each one at a time, and run each of them one at a time, they are both free and good programs

How to Clean Computer from Viruses


Sometimes your computer might get to the point that you won't be able to do anything on it because it's infected with viruses and trojans. This is one of the worst infections you can get and you need to follow these steps in order to get rid of the infected files.<br /><br />1. Download Hiren's Boot CD from a different computer if your doesn't work http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip <br /><br />2. Burn it on a CD and then put the CD into the computer full with viruses<br /><br />3. Boot from CD when prompted and from the CD menu select Mini XP which will load a mini copy of Windows XP onto your machine<br /><br />4. After Windows has loaded, go to Hiren's Boot CD menu and from menu select Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware<br /><br />5. Once Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is loaded, run a clean on your computer. This will temporary and hopefully forever will remove some of the trojans and the rogue antivirus<br /><br />6. When the scan is finished click to remove the infected files and restart your computer. Don't forget to take out the CD<br /><br />7. From the other computer download a FREE antivirus Microsoft Security Essentials from this link http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/<br /><br />8. Install it on the infected machine. Upon restart you will be able to do this, although the computer may be still infected. After installation of Microsoft Security Essentials, run a full computer scan to clean any infected files that weren't already removed<br />

My computer, Windows XP, freezes when I use Firefox


Your system loaded with Windows Xp Operating System might get affected by various viruses and malware. The antivirus softwares installed in your system for the removal and prevention of viruses from your system cause the freezing issue. This antivirus softwares might take too many time to load and it also make the entire system slow to boot. The antivirus programs result in the freezing of the Windows Xp during start up. Thus you need to temporary uninstall the antivirus software during the start up of your system.

What to do,computer is full of viruses wont let me in anywhere,system locked up,


In cases like this, you have no alternative but to format the hard disk and install Windows again.
You need your Windows installation CD and product installation code. After installing Windows and the Service packs, plus the computer's device drivers, then activate Windows, and install your programs.

Think Point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All these solutions sound nice. The problem is that even in "Safe Mode with Networking" I cant access anything on the computer that includes the start menu. So I cant install...


One way:
* remove the disk-drive from your computer
* install a different disk-drive (any old, 4GB or larger, disk-drive will work)
* install Windows onto that disk
* install anti-virus software onto that disk
* reconnect the previous disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive
* launch the anti-virus software, targetting that "slave" disk-drive
* shutdown
* disconnect the different disk-drive
* boot from the original disk-drive, now that it is virus-free

If the machine is a Dell with DellControlPoint, open start, run then type msconfig and hit enter. Choose the Startup tab and find the startup item named "Dell" with the Command from "C:\Program Files\Dell\Dell Control Point\Connection Manager\Dell.UCM.exe" and uncheck the box. Hit Ok, then reboot your computer.

Computer gets stuck loading win xp


Hiya ya, It sound to me you could be courripted with spy ware or a virus i will recommend using Ad-Aware SE Personal install this and run it! - you can find Ad-Aware SE Personal from this direct download link - http://software-files.download.com/sd/99nfDnO0WNfR5Wh8fucNAQf7N59p48yGyOq1e_XM8HIX6d0PeT0xd36uOth8kTloWoNAp4GOAh-Z2YdX8nf9afcV5NPn3Uc0/software/10639408/10045910/3/aawsepersonal.exe?lop=link&ptype=3000&ontid=8022&siteId=4&edId=3&pid=10639408&psid=10045910 This is a very good program i have been using Ad-Aware now for around 2 years and it's super. However if you have a virus you can use Avg_free - If you are already using norton or somthing like that REMOVE IT because personally Nortons Crap" Its not recommended - to remove your anti-virus go to Startmenu Settings/control panel /Add or remove Programs, Select the anti-virus program and press remove. After you done that! close all windows and open internet explorer with this link (explorer will open automaticlly) - http://free3.grisoft.cz/softw/70free/setup/avg75free_446a991.exe install that and run it on a virus check from the Avg test centre - If they don't work Then i would recommend a full deep clean for windows Xp But before you do that if you can Back-up any files that you want to keep as you need to Fully formatt C:/ drive (this is normally the drive that windows runs on) If you would need help at doing this On the telephone i can be contacted on * 0906 179 0906 (Call cost £1.50p/minute) @ all times. In the meantime take care And keep it hardcore = HTID = Hardcore till i die!
