Use the windows 2000 professional cd to install the windows again, you can install it to another folder so you get to keep your files if you decide to do it this way, ones your computer is working again, make sure you delete the downloaded file, if you start the file again, the one with the virus, you will have todo this all over again.

How to remove the scvhost.exe Virus.


Svchost.exe is the name of a generic host process for services that run from dynamic link libraries (DLLs). A variety of worm malware programs spread a similarly named file <b>Scvhost.exe </b>via Yahoo! Messenger that blocks the Task Manager and Registry Editor, as well as use of the command prompt.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Warning</u></b><br /> Manual removal of Scvhost.exe may be very difficult as the removal process requires knowledge of the Operating System's command prompt and Registry Editor. If not performed properly, your computer system might experience permanent damage. Consequently, manual removal might be best for experienced users. Less experienced users might want to consider using an automatic spyware removal application, such as that offered by Trend Micro. This worm duplicates itself to different locations of shared folders. The duplicated program uses a folder icon that has an .exe file extension. DO NOT double click on any of these folders.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Follow these step by step instructions to remove the scvhost.exe virus.</u></b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 1 (Turning off System Restore)</u></b><br /> This is so that if you ever need to use System Restore after you have removed the virus, it doesn't restore the virus aswell.<br /> <br /> If the operating system of the infected computer is either Windows Me or Windows XP, turn off System Restore while this fix is being implemented. To turn off System Restore within Windows Me, click <b>Start &gt; Settings &gt; Control Panel</b>. Double-click <b>System</b>. Select F<b>ile System</b> from the Performance tab. Left click the <b>Troubleshooting</b> tab and check the <b>Disable System Restore</b> box. Click <b>OK</b>. <br />To turn off System Restore within Windows XP, log in as Administrator and click <b>Start</b>. Right click <b>My Computer</b>" and select <b>Properties</b> from the shortcut menu. Check the <b>Turn off System Restore</b> option for each drive on the System Restore tab. Left click <b>Apply</b> and <b>Yes</b> to confirm when prompted. Click <b>OK</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 2 (Run in safe mode)</u></b><br /> Restart your computer in Safe Mode and log in as Administrator. Press <b>F8</b> after the first beep occurs during start up, before the display of the Microsoft Windows logo. Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode from the selection menu.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 3 (Accessing Command prompt)</u></b><br /> Access the command prompt. Click <b>Start &gt; Run</b>. Type <b>cmd</b>. Click <b>OK</b>. Then in the command prompt type <b>cd </b>to<b> </b>change directory then press the space bar. <br />Type the name of the full directory path of the folder containing your Windows system files. It will be either <b>C:\Windows\System </b>or<b> C:\Windows\System 32</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 4</u></b><br /> From the command prompt, type the following to unprotect the files for removal:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s blastclnnn.exe </b>and press<b> "Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 5</u></b><br /> Delete the files by typing the following from the command prompt:<br /><b>del scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del blastclnnn.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del autorun.ini</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 6</u></b><br /> Type "<b>cd\</b>" to return to the main Windows directory.<br />Unprotect and delete the Autorun.inf file by typing the following from the Windows directory command prompt:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del</b> <b>autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br />Type <b>regedit</b> and press <b>Enter</b> to open the Registry Editor.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 7</u></b><br /> Locate the following entry:<br /><b>HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run</b>.<br />Delete the incorrectly spelled Yahoo! Messenger entry with the value<br /><b>c:\windows\system32\scvhost.exe.</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 8</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon</b>.<br />Within the key, there is a <b>shell</b> entry with the value of <b>explorer.exe, scvhost.exe</b>. Edit the entry to remove the reference to Scvhost.exe, leaving Explorer.exe as the remaining value in the registry entry.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 9</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE&gt;SYSTEM&gt;CurrentControlSet&gt;Services&gt;<br /></b>Delete the following subkeys from the left panel:<br /><b>RpcPatch</b><br /><b>RpcTftpd <br /></b>Exit the command prompt and return to the operating system. Type <b>Exit</b>, and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 10</u></b><br /> Reboot the PC.<br />If Scvhost.exe still resides on the computer, repeat these steps or try using an automatic removal program from McAfee or Symantec.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

Blue screen on computer.


HI

if you have a BSOD ( Blue Screen Of Dead) maybe you have, a drivers problem ( reinstall them ), or you have a virus, ( try a full scan on the computer, or format)...

Turn on the computer, press F8, to acess security mode with network. (do this if you can't enter on windows in the normal way)

my solution:

  • Download the combofix from  http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
  • when you download it, disable firewall and antivirus, then execut it, and let it do the work...
hope I have helped
good luck

I have bought mcafee cd from the store and after i restarted the computer my computer freezes at the windows xp screen. how do i fix this?


Hi
I know this may sound childish but the answer right now is to remove Mcafee. Do this by going into SAFE mode. Press F8 while the computer is rebooting. Once at the SAFE menu select SAFE mode with networking. Once into SAFE mode goto START, Control Panel, Programs and Features. From there uninstall Mcafee. I had you go to the network mode because now you will need to download the Mcafee uninstall tool. This will remove the remaining pieces of Mcafee. Once all this is done go to normal mode and please check to make sure you don't have any other anti virus programs installed - these will definitely mess with Mcafee. If there are no other anti virus programs installed I have to assume it was a virus or malware that interfered with your Mcafee install. Unless you have them already I would suggest you download and then run these programs AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe. You can download these from www.download.com. Once these are completed, we know your system is clean, now run the Mcafee install and everything should work fine. Good luck

Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

Lost pwd unable to by pass safe mode


If you have access to another computer you can download EBCD which is an emergency boot CD that will allow you to reset your admin password among other things.
Search for ebcd-0_6_1-pro-sfx.exe. This is the full version of the software.
I have a copy somewhere, but I don't find it. I looked at the web site and apparently you can only download a demo. The demo may do what you need, I don't know as I never used it. I think I paid around $30 for it.

While online my computer frequentlu , for no reason, goes offline.


How about go to windows Task manager and go to processes. Look for Kragg.exe. Dellete it. It is a virus that go infected the boot sector. Go first to F8 or safe mode. Then control alt dellete so you can go to task manager. If you are not sure of this kragg.exe virus, you may scan your computer with your antivirus while in safe mode. Maybe your antivirus will quarantine the kragg.exe virus.
