Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Trying to install some downloaded software called “The Shield Deluxe 2009” (a antivirus etc program) on to my Acer laptop that is running with Vista. A message says “The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.” The program is highly recommended by a review of similar software. Any ideas how to fix as this is a stand alone machine not connected to any network! Regards, David

I will advise you to use AVG or Norton instead of a Shield Deluxe 2009.

As it is not good one and not updated regularly with the definiton, (my own experience with this and my clients) Often creating problem with the system even to crash.!!

If you have not paid for it yet, then better to switch over with a Better Anti virus. (a freeware is also good as AVG 8.0 without paid )

RECOMMENDED AVG

Let me know your Opinion before giving any vote for this.

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

Please remove Antivirus 2009 As I have McAfee security thru Comcast for free !


Antivirus 2009 is a virus and the fastest way to remove it would be to format the system over. However, if your lucky enough to have it in your ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS list, then remove it before it really gets messy. I just finished trying to clean this one and ended up reformatting the system. Now, if you need to do that, and your a bit technically incline, backup your profile located under C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\%accountname%
de3bf73.jpg
In the pictured example, OWNER is the primary account. Copy this to an external as this holds all your settings and documents and pictures provided you saved everything as a default to MY DOCUMENTS.

McAfee can't remove this virus.

Antivirus 2009 and 2010 Scam


If you have seen any of these popups shown below, on your computer, you have been infected with a fake antivirus. Not only is it fake, but it tries to force you to buy it, which is illegal and is considered fraud by authorities.
This program and it's many variants, take over administrative control of your PC, disable Task Manager, and regedit as well as replacing your desktop wallpaper with their fake warning. Well, it WOULD be fake, if this program weren't a Virus program all by itself.


Quoted From Bleepingcomputer.com


What this programs does:
Antivirus 2009 is a new rogue (Fake) anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus 2008 and Doctor Antivirus . Antivirus 2009 is installed and advertised through the use of misleading web sites that attempt to make you think your computer is infected with a variety of malware. Once installed, Antivirus 2009 will scan your computer and list a variety of fake infections that can't be removed unless you first purchase the software. These fake infections are only being shown to scare you into purchasing the malware.
When Antivirus 2009 is installed, a Internet Explorer browser helper object is also installed that displays fake messages when using Internet Explorer. These messages range from a line at the top of the browser stating an infection was found to adding a box to the Google homepage stating Google detected that your computer was infected. These tactics are just two more methods where Antivirus 2009 uses false information to scare you into purchasing their software.

Antivirus 2010 looks almost the same as 2008 and 2009.

e799bc4.jpg


Antivirus 2010
is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus 2008 and Antivirus 2009. Like its previous incarnations, Antivirus 2010 is distributed through the use of advertisements on the Web pretending to be online anti-malware scanners. These advertisements pretend to scan your computer and then state that your computer is infected and that you should download and install Antivirus 2010 to remove these infections. These rogues are also known to be advertised and installed through Trojans that display fake security alerts in your Windows taskbar stating you are infected. Once you click on one of these alerts, it will bring you to the download page for Antivirus 2010, or even download and install it without your permission.
Once Antivirus 2010 is installed on your computer, it will be automatically configured to run when you logon to Windows. This is done by adding a startup that launches the C:WindowsSystem32wingamma.exe executable. This executable will then launch the AV2010.exe and the fake Windows Security Center. Once running, it will scan your computer and list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the software. This infection will also randomly display fake security alerts on your computer stating that you are infected or have some sort of security risk. If you click on these alerts, it will prompt you to purchase the software. These fake alerts, along with a fake Windows Security Center that advertises Antivirus 2010, are used to further scare you into thinking you are infected so you will purchase this malware.
Another new addition to these types of rogues, is the creation of a fake Blue Screen of Death. At random intervals, Antivirus 2010 will create what appears to be a Windows crash, but in reality is just a hoax. These fake crashes are used to further scare you into purchasing this malware. If you receive this crash, you can simply reboot your computer , or try pressing Alt-Tab or Control-Alt-Delete to get out of it. The text of the crash is:
***STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000, 0xF73120AE, 0xC0000008, 0xC000000)
A spyware application has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
SPYWARE.MONSTER.FX_WILD_0x0000000
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Click to make sure your antivirus software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your software manufacturer for any antivirus updates you might need.
Windows detected unregistered version of Antivirus 2010 protection on your computer. If problem continue, please activate your antivirus software to prevent computer damage and data loss.
*** SRV.sys - Address F73120AE base at C0000000, DateStamp 36b072a3


END QUOTE HERE:


As you can see, all of this looks so very legitimate, as well it should, since THESE particular crooks have taken malware to a whole new level.
Yes, they will get caught, they always do.


The real difference here is that these particular scammers have decided to strong arm you much like a mobster demanding protection money, so the crime as well as the consequences will be much more severe.


The GOOD news though, is that even if you are infected at this very moment with this nasty program, you will be able to remove it before you reboot your PC and come back to Fixya!


Download and run, Malwarebytes Anti malware.
Don't forget to update it first though, just in case the fake antivirus has changed its nature to evade detection.
So far, this is the only program I have found to eliminate this problem, but I'm pretty sure others will follow the same path.


Follow up with Avast Antivirus, if you want something stronger than what others pay hard cash for at the store. Dont forget to uninstall your current Antivirus first, after all, it did fail to kill Antivirus 2010 didn't it?




Happy Hunting!

VirusResponse Lab 2009 on computer.


What this programs does:
VirusResponse Lab 2009 is an exact replica, other than the name, of the Zlob installed rogue called Antivirus Lab 2009. VirusResponse Lab is installed via malware that pretends to be a video codec required to watch videos online. Instead of doing what is advertised, the Zlob Trojan displays fake security alerts on your computer stating that your computer is infected and installs the VirusResponse Lab program. Once installed, the program will be configured to start automatically when your computer loads. Once started this program will scan your computer a list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the software. These found infections, though, are all fake and are only being shown to scare you into purchasing the VirusResponse Lab 2009.
Another byproduct of having this software installed is that your computer will begin to run slower. This is because the program is always running in the background while using your computer's resources. VirusResponse Lab will also periodically display nag boxes stating that you are infected and that you should purchase the software. Getting out of these sequences of boxes trying to sell you the software can be irritating and time consuming.


This guide will walk you through removing the VirusResponseLab 2009 program and its associated malware for free.

This program will remove it: http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5360&file=10&evp=2e0d43eb67e1e71c0b31e62c003599c0
the website that has it also has a really good antispyware program called malwarebytes
