Question about E-Machines eMachines T3830 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I can't get my pc to boot up.

I had a malware problem on my computer. It had several trojans and spyware on it. To get this particular trogan off was a big ordeal so I decided to just restore it. I tried many times to go back to several dates and it wouldn't work. My son finally was able to get it to go all the way to the end and then this message came up. Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt. system32hall.dll. Please reinstall a copy of the above file. I tried to access the boot settings by pressing F10 and the bios settings by pressing F2. Then it would say to boot press any key and I would but the pc would always take me back to the first message about installing a copy of the windows file. I tried to boot with the cd in and out. I'm at a loss as to what to do now. Can you help me? This computer is a W3653 Emachines. I had to say something else in the product space because the website said that the W3653 wasn't a valid product. Thankyou so much for your help.........

I had a similar problem; although, I do not remember the exact file name (it was however *.dll). I ended up re-instaling operating system. If you can get into safe mode you could save your personal files before reinstall.

Have you tried to boot to the cd and entering the Recovery Console? If you can get into the Recovery Console, you should then run chkdsk /r . That will check the file structure and replace the necessary files.
Please let me know if that helps.

    It may help to open the case up and pull the CMOS battery. Then try again to enter setup to config the boot options.

How do I get something off my computer called Spyware Clear?


Spyware Clear purports itself as being an anti-spyware program. As delivered (usually via 3rd party programs you may have downloaded) it appears to only detect unwanted spyware and requires a paid subscription to remove it. Several anti-Malware programs have also reported Spyware Clear as being malware itself and harboring other trojan software. Google for Spyware Clear to find instructions on how to remove it.

Malware Part 1: Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Spyware, Adware


Malwares or Malicious softwares are programs that are made intending to sabotage and destroy your computer or penetrate, spy and steal your information on your computer. These Malicious Software could be categorized into 5 major groups Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Spyware and Adware. What, are the differences between these 5 types?

Viruses are programs that act like biological viruses. They replicate or make a copy of themselves in another host. Using an infected host, like USB Flash disks or drives, viruses infect your computer and wait until you insert another flash disc to infect. While waiting in your computer, viruses, depending on their code, could either slow down the system, mess up your file system, or even destroy your files.

Trojans are programs that do not replicate or copy themselves. Trojans are software that are made by would be hackers to spy on your computer and create what they call back doors. These programs are intentionally placed on your computer directly, where there is physical contact with the computer, or indirectly, where a copy is sent through your Email or even by an infected Flash Drive. The trojan would then be on your computer but it will neither replicate nor crawl to other computers connected to the infected computer.

Worms, on the other hand, are the ones that have the capability to crawl to any computer connected to the infected computer. Worms infect computers through the local network and even through the public networks. Worms infect others by scanning your network and infecting any computer connected to your network. Other Worms would scan your email software for email addresses and send a copy of themselves to your contacts and act like it was sent by you. Worms also have the capability to destroy your files depending on the code programmed into it. Worms also has the effect of slowing down your network speed since it would scan your network and send copies of itself. Worms eat up a lot of bandwidth in a network.

Spyware and Adware are almost the same. The difference of these two is the intent and the usage. Spyware as its name implies is used to spy your computer for any vulnerabilities. Adware on the other hand is used to constantly bug you with Advertisements. Normally known as Unwanted Pop-ups. Both, however, can infect you by websites, that without your permission, that copy or install these unwanted software into your computer. Spyware and Adware, are sometimes also considered as Trojans by other Antivirus Software since it does not replicate or crawl in the network but does damage to your computer.

Whichever type, these Malicious Software, is harmful to your computer and is a threat to your personal security. It is best to be able to early detect these software and be able to purge them out of your system. As prolonged, exposure to these Malicious Software is very damaging which could cause you to lose your data.

In Malware Part 2: Malware Detection and Removal, we will discus how to detect malware and some basic techniques in removing these Malicious Software.

I feep getting a "gamevance32.exe-encounterproblem" msg when I boot up


Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. This sounds like it could be a virus. The other option is take it out of startup.

Start>Run>msconfig

Click the startup tab then find the one with that name and uncheck it. Let me know if that helps.

I cannot boot my vgc-rc310g after removing trogan horse (2ea)


Your laptop still has a virus. From your description, you seem computer savy. What u need to do is you need to boot your system with UBCD ( can be downloaded at www.UBCD4win.com) and search for files with the extension as .exe and delete the ones that look like folders.

then you reboot and try and log into your system. Next, download a software called Combofix. You google it out and get a download. run that to remove the remaining viruses and fix your regsitry.

I purchased the AVG Anti-virus & anti- spyware cd


Installing AVG might not be able to solve your spyware problem.

You could try downloading free mbam:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe

Double-click and install it. Then run it. Click the Scan button, It will detect and remove the Spyware Guard 2008

After clicking on OK button for scan is complete, you need to click the Remove Selected button when the malwares are listed.

Let the computer reboot if mbam needs that.
Then try installing AVG.

Just in case, you could also try booting from the AVG CD. If it's bootable, it will be able to scan your computer without the need to boot in to windows. Try it too.
