I have an HP Pavilion XP and at start up, I keep getting the message "R_CEngine.dat file does not exist" in a prompt box. How do I get rid of this?


sounds like you have downloaded some spyware or malware or you downloaded an unwanted program. if you cannot get rid of it, use system restore and that will remove it.

I keep trying to quarantine then delete issues with webroot anti virus but my computer keeps freezing up and won't do anything, when I cont. alt delete, it says task manager has been diabled by...


Sounds like you have spyware or a trojan rather than a virus.You can try a restore point if there is one or you can try SPYBOT to see if it can delete it effectively.Webroot is probably causing the freezing from not being able to shut the program down first then eliminating it or its not made to really get rid of spyware/trojans/worms etc at all.There are very few Anti-Virus-Spyware removers that actually work as well as they are advertised.

Windows message always appears when computer starts up this is the Message (rtutils.dll is missing therefore windows needs to close)


To get rid of the rtutils.dll you can try the steps given below.

Turn on the system in safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you turn on your system

Check the recycle bin to see you hav accidentally deleted the file. If so restore the file from the recycle bin.

If you have cleared the recycle bin then the best option would be to use a file recovery option. A software called Recuva is available. It is a file recovery software.

Sometimes the file could have been corrupted bya spyware/virus/malware. In this case run the anti-virus and anti spyware. This can help you detect the malware and restore the file back to normality.

else try to do a system restore
XP->
Start-> Programs-> Accesories->System tools-> System restore

Vista->
Click on windows (left side bottom) -> Type (System restore) in start program bar-> and click on the same.

If you are facing the problem after a software installation then try to uninstall the software and check for the error.

Try to clean up the registry

Try to update the drivers.

and if all of these don't work then try to download the dll file from the internet.

My asus eee pc may have a virus


Are you on Linux or Windows XP? Given that Linux is nowhere near as bad as XP for viruses, I'll assume XP.

If on Windows, keep pressing F8 on Post (machine Switch on).
From the menu of options, select 'Safe Mode' - this is a mode that deactivates all start up programs and drivers.

From within here run a virus AND spyware scan.

You can get free Anti-virus from www.MajorGeeks.com
Use AVG Free Adition or Aviva (aka Antivir)

For Spyware, use Spybot

You will probably need to download on another computer.

Possible spyware has been detected


Try installing a program called adware, its free and can remove any spyware you may be getting. Try that and then see how it goes, you shouldn't have to run a recovery just for a bit of spyware.

Malware/spyware


hi!sometimes the best way to get rid of all virus/malware is to do a a fresh install of the operating system,for that :
  1. do copy all important data on ur compu especially on the desktop and the my documents as they will be lost,also all purchased software will be lost 
  2. u will need the installation cd of xp and the drivers cd of your laptop..u may get the drivers cd from the hp website at hp.com (do check) so the important thing is to have the windows xp cd..
if u have more questions in actually performing the re installation please let me know..regards!

Desktop and Task bar disappearing


You computer is infected by the spyware virus try to run in the safemode and download and install spyware doctor of pctools also the registry mechanic this two utilities is very helpful in term of spyware virus. But sometime if your computer infected by the UST.AVI virus you cannot install any program even the anti virus. The virus automatically close any program you install to prevent the anti virus to install in the system. If this happen the only way to salvage the files is reinstall the windows in the other directory then after you finished install windows. You can copy now the the files in the old directory copy of the windows your needed files. and delete the old windows directory permanently.
