Start the computer in SAFE MODE by pressing f8 as it first starts--select the safe mode with networking-- when it opens (it will be slow) run your virus update program , then run the virus scan..

My dell is runing slow


Hi,
The most common causes of a slow PC is:
a)It has been infected with viruses and/or spyware
b)You have too many programs or apps installed on your PC which are running in the background and slowing the tasks you are busy with.

Install a good anti-virus program such as AVG free edition. You can download it for free from www.avg.com
Once downloaded run a full scan to detect viruses and spyware which may be slowing your PC down.
Also uninstall any programs which you are not using.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

I have a trogen virus and no money can I fix it for free?


You can use free antivirus like Avira, Avg or Avast, they are as effective as full version antivirus if updated regularly and registered successfully.

You can download::
1. Avast Free

2. Avg Free

4. Avira Free


Don't install two antivirus at a time, if you are installing one of them or if there's any antivirus program installed on your computer, please uninstall and install the new one, otherwise you may have another problem with your problem.

First install Avast and run a full system scan, then check the scanned result, if you are sure that those trojans or virus etc..etc.. are removed, you are done, no need to uninstall and reinstall the other, or if you still doubt, you can try with the other two after the first one is uninstalled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Okay, i believe that my computer is infected by the "Vista Security" virus. every site I have visited said to use system recovery or an anti-virus, i cannot afford an anti-virus and the system recovery...


Hello
AVG is a free anti virus

Panda cloud is also free

You could also run a windows defender scan.

Try cleaning your internet files and deleting the history.

You have the Conflicker virus,
You will need to update your virus software and scan for virus.
If you don't have virus protection try AVG free, it should clean it up. you may also want to run Malwarebytes software.

You need to get some hard drive cleaner like Drive Scrubber. Wipe out your hard drive and then reload your operating system. That will take care of all the viruses..

Hello,

Rhis error due to there is a resident virus or your system infexted by virus already. for the main time try to install other antivirus. you can get it here for free: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition

And then scan your system. You can remove the sysmantec if you like AVG or you can reinstall the symantec if there is no error in your system. remove either of the two antivirus to avoid conflict in the system.

An unknown error tell me pzzzzzzz


Apparently your XP is missing some needed component to complete the task you are trying to perform. When and in what context does this message appear, as that will give a clue as to the missing component(s).

I notice that you do not have the Windows XP style selected as your taskbar is grey, not blue. Was it always this way or did it change by itself. If it just changed one day, it could be a sign of hard drive corruption (where it cannot access the XP theme) or virus infection (where a virus deliberately disables various system functions to prevent you from using the machine).

Did you have a recent virus infection that was cleaned up? The anti-virus program may have removed some Windows files where the virus(es) attached themselves.

Start with the simple. Go to My Computer, right click on your hard drive, select Properties at the bottom, go to the second tab Tools and run a disk error check. Check the boxes for Automatically fix system error and Scan for bad blocks. You will have to reboot and be patient as this can take a while depending on the size of the drive. The computer will continue to the desktop when the disk check is complete. Listen for and ticking, knocking or attempts to keep reading disk sectors as this may be a sign of a failing drive.

After, download and run at least one antivirus scan. I can see you have CCleaner and uTorrent but I do not see any antivirus. If you have SP2 or SP3, install Windows Defender from Microsoft first. It is self explanatory, free and available here:)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=435bfce7-da2b-4a6a-afa4-f7f14e605a0d&displaylang=en

Note you must be running a legal copy of Windows XP for this to install.

The other antivirus I would suggest is AVG Free Edition, which is available from here:)

http://www.avg.com/filedir/inst/avg_free_stf_en_8_176a1400.exe

My final suggestion is to run a System File Check, but you need a Windows XP installation disk for that. The Compaq Restore CDs will not suffice as they are generally compressed and encoded.

Please post comments on your progress and results.

Trying to install avg free, but get 1 error. Action failed for file avgmfx86 sys starting service Error number 0x80070002


You may be infected by the virus Autoit.exe. Have your computer scanned with another antivirus before installing AVG. AVG Free (updated that is) is effective if already installed before the virus attacked. You may download and try a trojan cleaner dedicated for this purpose here.
