You can clean it. Download the trial version of malwarebytes antispyware. Then run a quick scan. If that doesn't clean it, do this also:

  • run smitfraudfix: choose the search option, after it's done, reboot in safe mode, and run it again but choose the clean option
  • run vundofix, and clean anything it finds
  • Optionally, run spybot or ad-aware to clean up any traces

Hi,
To be very true, there is no permanent fix to the problem, except for reinstalling the windows after a complete format. This is very annoying virus. You can get rid of it by deleting, the enteries in the registery , but it tends to return and the only fix that i was able to find was to reinstall , coz thats exactly what i ended up doing on my computer. As i had the same problem


Thanks
Proton

On windows vista some desktop icons have a security shield on right side of icon. how do you remove shield and not lose the security?


The icons having Shield icon associated with it means that they need administrator privileges every time they run. Not any kind of security as you think, this thing simply says that they should be run from any administrator's account or other account with administrator password.


Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

How can I get rid of CA parental control? I never set it up!


AntiSpyware 2008 is a rogue anti-spyware program from the developers as Antivirus 2009. This program is advertised through misleading and deceptive web sites that pretend to be malware scanners that find infections on your computer They do this to scare you into thinking your infected, even though a web site can't possibly know this, in the hopes that you will download and install the AntiSpyware 2008 program. If you decide to install it, the program will scan your computer and come back with a list of security risks found on your computer that you cannot remove unless you first purchase a license of the software. It is important to remember that these people are preying on your fear and for the most part you do not have the infection they say you do.

I have a new laptop which has built in wireless but I cant get it to connect to my house internet. I entered a wrong passcode and now cannot work out how to reset it so i can start again


Vista or XP? XP is the easiest. Click on the Wireless icon in the lower right. click on advance settings>wireless networks and remove all the preferred networks or just the one you wanted to sign in to in that box. VIOLA! start again.
VISTA a little harder. right click on the wireless icon. click networks and settings. in the left side bar click manage networks. Find your network device and right click properties. Security tab to change the password settings.

It is a virus or spyware try running a antivirus or antispyware prog if that doesn't help you will have a choice live with it(easy, but annoying), take it in (easy,but expensive), or save all your important files and reload everything (little more difficult, but cheap). Hope that helps you out. Either way you do it make sure to always have antivirus and antispyware running, you can get good ones for free. here are some links.
