Hi :) I'm assuming that this is a laptop and not a tower? I'm assuming that as it sounds more like a hard drive fault than a trojan virus, or it may be that you have both :-( If you're getting to run CHKDSK then you have access to the operating system i presume? Is it 'after' the chkdsk test that you now cannot get anything to run? CHKDSK may have moved an essential file or marked a sector as faulty that's preventing booting. There's a few things that can be attempted, I'd suggest (if possible) . . . I am making several assumptions with these suggestions, hopefully one may help a little.... The laptop wont boot off the DVD - this may indicate a flat CMOS battery, so it now only wants to boot up from the hard drive first. Only about 10 viruses have ever been created that could stop a DVD drive from being used, and even then its just in Windows. If you can, check the BOOT ORDER in the BIOS settings. Get a copy of a program called MiniTool Partition Wizard (free off the net - use a friends computer for that). It's 100% safe to use - have your friends computer create the special Boot CD version (requires 1 blank CD), and see if you can boot the laptop with that. If so, have it check Surface Test, and also Align the drive - that helps often for me. You can also try the HIRENS Boot CD (again a free download), which will allow you to run all kinds of tests using a version of Windows that runs in memory - so it cannot be changed by viruses and can give you all kinds of control, including running other repairs and anti virus programs. I hope something there help in some way. (i dont think you can sell people on here lol, good try though - ain't they a pain? lol)
Have you got an anti-virus program?
If you have did it remove this trojan virus?
If you have not an anti-virus program or the program cannot remove this trojan, then I recommend you format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, the laptop device drivers and your programs.
This is the only sure way to remove such a threat.
Although this is a drastic method, it is better to be sure you do not lose your money to crooks. After installing Windows, install a good quality anti-virus program and keep the virus definition files updated regularly.
Hi there. This is a common problem with pictures not uploading to ebay, this is because the file size could be too large. Copy the pics to the PC and open them using Microsoft Office picture manager, click on edit picture, and then resize, choose predefined width x height and select web -small then save the edited pic and try to upload to Ebay again.
The error message you are getting is a result of a trojan virus that embedds itself in WININET.DLL.
Two simplest solutions:
1. If there is nothing important on the laptop that isn't already backed up, use your Dell install disks to re-install the computer.
2. If you have important files on the drive which are NOT backed up. Take it to a pro, or buy a 2.5" Hard drive enclosure, put your drive in the caddy and connect it to another computer that has an up to date virus scanner. Scan the drive for viruses and allow the virus scanner to clean all virus' it finds.
When that's done copy the files you need to the other computer and then Restore the laptop as per step 1. When it's up and running again, install a good virus scanner, then copy the files back to it from the other PC.
How did you know you had a Trojan Virus that came from your cam ?
Reinstall your op using the disk that came with it ,Then always keep a backup .
I've been online for over 10 years without a virus ,I will tell you like I tell my brother
stop going to the porn sites (the best of virus makers) and you will be virus free .If you keep more then one copy of your op everything will be fine.
Sorry to tell you like this but a virus like in real life and on the web will always be there but unlike real life you can make a copy on your computer if you do it enough you lose little and not it all.
Hi, I got the solution for myself. Initially I have enabled to view the hidden folder option and even then I was not able to see the folder, then later I have disabled the options Hide Extensions for Known file types and Hide Protected Operating system files. Then I could see the folder and able to retrieve the photos. Once I have taken my photos I have formatted my MMC card and it is working normally.
Its the W32/Rungbu-A virus, it infects Microsoft Word DOC files by
copying itself to the same filename but with an .SCR extension,
appending the DOC file to the SCR copy, and then hiding the original
The W32/Rungbu-A then sets the computer not to show
hidden files (in order to hide the DOC file), to give SCR files a Word
icon (so the SCR file looks like a Word file), and to hide file
extensions (so the SCR file just displays the filename, not the SCR
extension). When the SCR file is run, the Word document is displayed as
To recover your .DOC files just follow these steps:
You have to delete all files detected as W32/Rungbu-A.
Set the following registry entries in order to show extensions and hidden files:
You must change the attributes of the original .DOC files to stop them being hidden.
My answer to your second question, is in November of 2007 the .SCR file extension started to be used to transmit
a Trojan. As a script or a screen saver this file can execute other
files which carry the Trojan. The SCR file may be embedded within a ZIP
file which could also contain a file with a double extension. Many Windows screen savers come with a .SCR extension by default.
Usually these will be found in the Windows main directory. Use caution
if you receive a screen saver file via E-mail. These files can contain
executable code and can be worms or viruses. Note: This file type can
become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a
file with this extension.
