Free antivirus program


You don't have a question here, but I will comment on AVG. I used to use AVG and have Beta Tested both AVG and AVAST. AVAST I can set up a Boot-Time Scan and with AVG I can not. Importance of a Boot-Time Scan, is getting rid of persistent viruses. There is NO, and I mean NO antivirus program that totally works under Windows. The Boot-Time Scan works under DOS and runs before windows is loaded upon your next restart. It takes longer, but it works very well. Depending on the size of your hard drive and the number of files on it, it can take as long as 2 to 2 1/2 hours. It is automatic, so walk away and when you see windows has loaded, then the Boot-Scan has finished. There is a log file that you can view to see what it found if you want to look. Once AVG let a virus into my computer, I went to AVAST and never went back, mainly because AVAST works and also the Boot Scan feature that AVAST has. Years ago, there was a DOS based virus scan that I had used on a Floppy Disc to rid computers of nasty virus attacks and infested PC's. It was proven to me that only a DOS based program can rid any virus a PC is infected with. With the free version you do not necessarily get all the help you need, but with the paid versions you will get all the Bells and Whistles. While free is alright to try, I recommend you Buy! This keeps software development going in the right direction and improvements flourishing.

U.S.B have some virus


Insert your USB drive in the appropriate USB slot in your computer. If the Autoplay dialog box appears, select "Take No Action" and click the "OK" button. Launch your anti-virus program, such as AVG Antivirus or Anti Malware. Select the USB drive for the program to scan. Click the "Start Scan" button or option. Open the scan history for the USB drive when the scan is complete to see a list of viruses and warnings identified by the antivirus software. If desired, select the options to "Heal All Infected Files" or "Move the Infected Files to the Virus Vault" to ensure these files are quarantined from your system. Highlight each infected file in the scan history. Write down the file name of each infected file identified on the USB drive. Minimize the application's window. Select "Run" from the Windows "Start" menu. In the Run window, type "e:/" at the command prompt to switch to your USB drive (or type the drive letter for your USB drive). Press the Enter key. Type "attrib -s -h -r -a *.*" at the command prompt to remove the system, hidden, read-only and archive file attributes. Press the Enter key. Type "del ####.+++" where "####" is the file name of the infected file and "+++" is the file extension, at the command prompt line. Press the Enter key. For example, "del terriblevirus.exe" will specifically delete the Terrible Virus executable file. Repeat for each infected file on your list identified in Step 4. Close the command prompt window; that is, exit the Run utility. Maximize the window for your anti-virus program (which is still open) and repeat Steps 2 to 7 until no virus is detected on your USB drive. Exit the anti-virus application.
or Click start click on my computer you should see your usb drive right click then select format. another way is to control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right Click on your drive select format

Try to boot from your OS cd or recovery disc. Run the disk check software and see if your hard disk is mechanically ok or it crashed. If your hard disk is mechanically functional then run virus check on your hard disk. This will clean all the virus infections. And you will be alright hopefully.
If your hard disk's boot sector is damaged you may want to format the hard disk and place the boot sector in another portion of hard drive.

Trying free trial. only lasted one day. It stopped working and my computer seriously infected.


A few things for you to do, the good news is it's all free!

First...you need access to a different computer. Go to www.malwarebytes.org and download their program onto a CD or flash drive. Then boot up your infected computer in safe-mode (Don't know what computer you have, maybe F6 or F8). Install malwarebytes and run a FULL scan. This can take up to 3 hours depending on how much stuff you have on your computer. When it is done, follow the directions to delete the infections. Then reboot normally and run a full scan again. When thats done, the best thing to do is uninstall the Panda Antivirus, then go to www.microsoft.com and install MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS. It is a free anti-virus program and its as good or better as anything out there. Again, run a full scan and follow the directions to delete any virus' found. This should get you up and running and keep you protected. I would also recommend going to www.iobit.com and installing their ADVANCED SYSTEM CARE (also free) and run thru their cleaning options.

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.

may this help,

Factory Restore computer


Yes, factory re-imaging of the computer will work. But it's overkill.

Her computer is most likely infected with a virus that tells windows to shutdown.

Before reformatting the computer, have her boot into safe mode. Do this by hitting F8 while the computer is booting, and the safe mode menu will pop up, where she can pick "Safe Mode" as the method of booting.

When windows comes up, she should run a virus scan on her computer and try and get rid of the problem. She does have some kind of anti-virus utility installed right? If not, get AVG Free Edition from http://free.grisoft.com/doc/downloads?prd=aff
