i recommend using adaware free edition from www.lavasoft.de also search for combofix.exe it is very helpful in removing alot of viruses.and don't forget you can always do system restore that works most of the time.just run the syastem resore wizard and choose a date when you know your computer was not infected.don't worry it won't erase any files,just puts the registery back in order.if you dont know how to use system restore,goto start menu and click help and search for system restore

How do you get rid of a virus that has got thru my norton, firewall and windows defender. i think its a trojan?


You can try different antivirus like AVG, NOD32, or kaspersky, but if you really want to erase it then back up all of your data and then reformat your HD using the Windows Vista Installation disk.Or better delete the partition and then recreate it,this will 110% get rid of that virus. You may want to use a anti spyware utility like ad-aware this can also get rid most spyware/trojan out their.

Restoring Dell computer


The best thing for you to do is to recover your computer back to the way it wasy when you purchased it. Warning, you will lose all data you have on your computer so you need to make sure you have a backup. You need to boot off of the operating system cd that came with your Dell. Once that's loaded, then you need to run the cd that says applications and drivers, and follow the instructions for your computer that comes onscreen.

Virus on my computer help!


Hi,

Don't worry, trojan.adclicker is not a serious threat, only some spyware which is not anywhere near as malicious as a virus. There are two things you can do to get rid of it though..

1) Follow these instructions (They are long winded but will work)
http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2002-091214-5754-99&tabid=3

2) Download Spybot S&D. This is a really good bit of software that should get rid of it much more easily for you, and will probably get rid of other similar stuff on your pc. Follow the link below and then install the program, then scan the system, then fix problems.

I would recommend trying option 2 first, it will be less hassle.

Hope this was helpful
