Get norton anti virus. (thoroughly scans your system for viruses and quarentines them-also has firewall and email scanning capabilities) Norton also has a complete line up of virus protection software
get XoftSpySE (gets rid of Spyware, adware, malware, spybots, etc)

after you download or get the above products i would install them immediately, after install restart your computer, ensure that you are disconnected from the internet if at all possible and start each of the above programs before you do anything else. preferably start norton first, and let it do a full system scan. once its finished, run the XoftSpySE and when they are both finished do what they recommend to get rid of the viruses. after that restart your computer, plug back up to the internet and you should be golden.

I got prob on when virus attack my laptop my assignment file has corrupt have any solution?


Hi,

Have you removed the virus from your computer? You can read my tech article on removing viruses by clicking here. There is a chance that if the file itself was infected, and the virus is removed, the file maybe deleted.

If you are using a Word processing program you can see if it saved an older copy of the file, or maybe you have a backup. These would be your only options at this point.

Protecting Your Computer from Viruses




Well a computer user mostly afraid and suffers from virus attacks. Virus is the unwanted program that destroys your data and some times also damage the computer.
One of the most common ways of virus attacks is by connecting USB to your computer.
So today I will tell you some tips which can avoid or minimise the chances of virus attacks.
Always keep in mind the following points before connecting a pen drive to your computer.

1. Always use a good antivirus in your system.
2. Never open the pen drive directly.
3. before opening the pen drive, scan the pen drives for finding the possible viruses in the pen drive.
To scan the pen drive go to My Computer->Right Click on the Pen drive->Click on Scan option(Remember Scan option will only be there if there is any antivirus installed on your system)
4. if any virus found and the antivirus is not able to delete the virus, just safely remove the pen drive from your computer.
5. If no virus is found, do not double click on the pen drive to open.
Always open the pen drive by Right clicking on the pen drive and then clicking the explore i.e.:
My Computer->Right click on pen drive->Click on Explore
6. Always beware of copying the unwanted files on your computer. Just copy the file which you want. Never do a select all, copy all thing. Just copy the item you wanted, and paste into your computer.
While pasting the data you should never paste it on C drive (Drive that contains your operating system). Always copy data in a separate drive then C drive.

So these are some small steps which can be very useful to avoid virus attacks...

My grandkids have went to sights, now i get message that someone or something is trying to attack my computer but norton 360 blocked it. My question is I have bought another dell desktop pc and want to put...


Hi,

You don't have to worry about the attack being transferred to the new computer because they will both have a different IP address.

Providing you protect your computer with a good antivirus software like you are already using then you should be fine although no computer is 100% safe from attacks and viruses.

Norton 360 provides decent internet security plus some attacks are dependant on the site you visit. It's all about being vigilant and protecting your computer the best you can.

Regards.
