Winplayer.exe and autorun.inf virus


you probably have the virus on your registry and that is a tough one. it depends on the type of virus you have, it may not allow you to install an anti-virus, but you can give it a try. download ad-ware or malwarebytes from the internet, the free version and enable all the settings. start with the malwarebytes its good for problems like this and see if it can get the virus out.

Sir i have a problem with laptop,its effected from a.exe virus.how do i remove it,please help.i am usin gxp {profesional}


You will have to try a bunch of different software to get rid of this. Let's start you off from the top.

ESET NOD32 Antivirus.

Malwarebytes.

Ad-Aware.

Spybot Search & Destroy. (When installing Spybot, make sure to uncheck TeaTimer.exe. In other words, don't install it!)

AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

You will need to download each utility. After installing them, restart your computer. After the restart, open up NOD32 Anitvirus and update its security definitions file. After it has been updated, perform an in-depth scan on your entire computer.

After NOD finishes, exit the utility and open Malwarebytes. Update Malwarebytes' security definition files. Afterward run a full scan on your entire computer. After the scan finishes, remove anything found (restart if necessary).

After Malwarebytes finishes, open up Ad-Aware. Update Ad-Aware's security definition files. Afterward run a full scan. If anything is found, remove it and if necessary, restart your computer.

After Ad-Aware finishes, open up Spybot Search & Destroy. Update Spybot's files then exit Spybot. Now open up Spybot again and select the category, "Immunize." After the automatic scan finishes, select, "Immunize" at the top of the aplication. After immunization is complete, exit Spybot. Now open up Spybot, again. After Spybot loads run the scanner (Press, "Check for Problems"). After the scan finishes, remove anything found then restart if necessary.

After Spybot finishes, open up AVG Anti-Rootkit Free. After the application finishes loading, perform an in-depth scan of all hard-drives. If anything is found, remove it then restart your computer.



If the virus remains after following the steps above you will have to get your computer repaired as it only gets trickier from here.

Let me know how it turns out for you. Don't hesitate to let me know if you need any more assistance.

Unknown dll


Hi,

I suggest that it might be tied to some malware installed on your computer.

To get rid of all the problems....

This is what you want to do:

1) Go to CCleaner - Home and download that and install

2) Get on google and type in " spyware doctor starter edition" find that, download it and install

3) Ad-Aware @ Lavasoft - The Original Anti-Spyware Company - Lavasoft and download adaware

4) Anti-Spyware, Anti-Malware, Email Security Software and Firewall and download counterspy

5) free.grisoft.com -- download avg antispyware free edition

NOW,

1) Run ccleaner to clear out your temporary files

2) Go to the start orb and type "msconfig". Look for any references to the .dll file in there, and if you see it, disable it. You can also disable and unneeded startup items while your here if you choose. REBOOT

3) Install and update (if you didn't already) the antispyware software, run FULL scans with all of them (one at a time preferably). All should be well after the scans complete

4) ???

5) Enjoy!

As for the error message.. does it pop up when you boot up your computer? Did you recently install something that might be questionable?
Try uninstalling whatever it is that you recently installed. Also, look at the tutorials here to learn how to enable and disable start up programs.



Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya........

Ad-ware on my wifes computer!


Try downloading and running Spyware Terminator and Spybot Search & Destroy. Both can be downloaded from PC World for free. Be sure to update each program before you scan. If you want to try an online scan, try Trend Micro Housecall, which is free..
