Problems with my pc


Hi Christopher,
The problem you describe is most certainly a spyware infection on your PC.
Firstly make sure you have a good anti-virus program installed on your pc.
You can download AVG antivirus for free by clicking on the link below:

http://www.google.co.za/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=avg&source=web&cd=3&ved=0CEoQjBAwAg&url=http%3A%2F%2Ffree.avg.com%2Fus-en%2Fdownload&ei=XxoPT8a8IqXQmAXWmajhAw&usg=AFQjCNF_OvnwrSpXtAdHA34xR79U7KqiGg&sig2=89OH_xygGZRJf5_0dpfKdg&cad=rja

Once downloaded and installed allow AVG to do download any updates from the internet. After all updates are completed Run a full system scan to remove viruses and spyware on your PC.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Updates for Microsoft XP does not download to securites KB936982 and KB938127


Is your version of microsoft windows genuine.. ??

if it is here is what you need to do

1.) click start then all programs / accessories
2.) Click system tools, system restore.
3.) restore to a previous date about 2 to 3 weeks back..
4.) restart the system and now update windows..


If its a fresh install you have, something might have been corrupted when installing windows xp. You may need to format and reinstall again..

Another problem is a virus or trojan horse*spyware"..

Download avg free anti virus install and update then run it
Download Super anit spyware and install it as well..

If that fails let me know and there are alternative soultions

Best virus/spyware protection


be careful when using symantec, it is a real resource hog! It does a good job, but is also expensive and costs annually to use. I use all the same items as GregL except i have had a lot of problems with SP3 :/ then again i normally install it on a working machine, and it messes somthing up. On a fresh install of windows XP it should do fine (SP3 that is)

I brought ca anti-virus plus anti-spyware 2008 and the product don't work it won't allow me to register my software thet keep asking me for a licenes key which i don't have it's also asking me to buy...


This is only an idea, but if you aren't on dial-up you can download 2 very good FREE programs. Go to download.com and enter AVG Free into search, Download the file, it's about 46MB. Save it to your temp folder (right click Start/explore/ (C) / Windows / Temp make a new folder in Temp called "software' or something. Then in download.com search for ad-aware free (it's by lavasoft) Save also to (C)/windows/temp/software.

Now install. When installing AVG select advanced instead of standard when you get to the box that gives the choice, when you get to where it confirms if you want to download and install the free AVG toolbar, untick (don't install it) Select USE FREE when you get to the registration box, and also don't register your details (unless you want emails from them)
Update it but don't run a scan yet.

Ad-aware by Lavasoft. Install it. Make sure the correct plug in's are ticked or not re what email software you use when you get to that box. Don't register this one either.

When they are both installed go to the desktop, you will have two shortcut icons for Ad-aware, keep the one that looks like a green world and delete the one that looks like a sheild with a beetle on it.

Open Lavasoft and Update it.
Open AVG and Update it.

Restart your computer in Safe mode (usually by pressing F8 at startup) Run a Full Scan from Ad-aware. Select and delete Critical and Privacy Spyware when scan completes.

Run an AVG full computer scan. Delete or remove anthing found.

Restart in normal Windows. From now on keep them updated and run at the minimum weekly scans (Smart Scans in Ad-aware) These two programs will cover virus and spyware very well, you can delete or disable anything else.

Hope this helps, I have used these two free products for over 5 years with no problems. Make sure your Microsoft Updates are current.

If i have alot of viruses on my computer can i still use the norton AntiVirus installation kit? i've been trying but it won't install....


i assume you have an old version of norton, so it will be out of date, go here for AVG free with anti spyware (choose the avg free download), it's also free updates.

I have an unknown trojan virus thats keeps poping up trying to get me to installed anitspyware how do i get rid of it


  1. AntiVirus - AVG Free Edition
  2. AntiSpware - Spyware Blaster
  3. AntiAdware - Ad-Aware
I recommend using all three of these programs, by doing so you have all your bases covered. AVG Free edition is an awesome program, it updates daily so you can catch even the newest viruses. Best of all it's free! Spyware Blaster is another great program, I've found that this will pick up a lot of things other programs may miss, again it's a free program. Ad-Aware is another great program, this program will also clear out any tracking cookies you may have acquired over time. I use all three of these personally and install them on every computer I build or service.
  • Where do I get these great free programs.
If you haven't visited CNET's http://www.download.com already you are missing out on tons of great free programs, they have everything from games demo's to music editing software, screen savers, and of course antivirus, antispyware, and antiadware programs. This site is updated frequently and includes many reviews on their content. u could simply go to this page and use the search box to find the above mentioned programs, but I'll make it easy for you, follow the below links.

For AVG anti virus-http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=pop.software
For Spyware Blaster-http://www.download.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=lst-2
For AdAware-http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?tag=pop.software
