Yahoo mesenger is not sign in and connectiong with net due to virus problem


I would fix the virus problem first before attempting to log into yahoo messenger. If you have a virus you need to quarantine it. If you have a anti-virus make sure it's up to date. Run the a scan on your pc and do a window's update. The anti-virus should be able to quarantine the virus or give you an option to do so.

Tip

Automatically create an Update Virus Defintions CD for Norton Ghost v12.0 and...


Got Symantec GHOST12 (bootable CD) + NAV2008 (non-Bootable) with a valid serial number and want a method to scan your PC for Virus with the latest Virus Defintions but you don't have NAV2008 installed because your ISP gived you a free Virus Suite then read on.

I have created this semi-automatic method to create a virus CD that will work with the Scan for Virus option on the Ghost Boot CD simply replace the Ghost CD with the one this creates and select browse usually for D: drive you will see your CD-ROM access light action as the Ghost loaded on Ram disk updates itself.

Download link for the Norton Ghost definitions Updater is HERE you need to join my group on facebook @windowstipsclub.com to request the password to unzip as this was originally posted there first, though you FixYa's might like it too plus there are other great tips and tricks. The download link for my Norton AV2008 definitions install CD is HERE on my rapidshare due to a 50MB upload limit on my Sky Drive.

You may also need to enable Windows Scripting Hosts do this using THIS from my Sky Drive to enable the VBS script to run at the start of both autoupdaters.

CreateUpdateVirusCD.bat - Will download the latest i32 definitions file and then action the full unzip ISO and burn in one go if you already have the ISO created then you can run the file below. first it will allow you to run a vbs script to clean then temp files Ihave found this to be required on some systems before the downloadsucks in the latest i32 definition file from the FTP server it willthen unzip it and create a Update Locator Virus Definition folder on your desktop similar to the UPDTLCTR.EXE function that is bundled with the Ghost CD (this only works if you have NAV2008 pre-installed and can't create the folder otherwise)

makecd4defs32.bat - will create an ISO from the Desktop Folder and burn the CD for you using mkisofs.exe and parts of the CYGWIN dll's this will burn the ISO to your CD/DVD burner it is set to default scsibus1 (dev=1,0,0) if your burner is on a different channel then you can run scanbus note the number and edit the listmem32.awk by altering the numbers shown in bold and saving the changes, if your drive is on scscibus2 then change to 2,0,0 and so on...

print "cdrecord speed=0 -dev=1,0,0 -dao -v Virusdef.iso" >> "dumpit.bat"

a15e609.jpg

In the case of this scanbus the CDRW is located on scsibus1 but connected at 1,1,0 so change the line to read.

print "cdrecord speed=0 -dev=1,1,0 -dao -v Virusdef.iso" >> "dumpit.bat"

Norton Ghost v12.0 ( includes defintions no later than 2007)
Norton Ghost v14.0 ( includes defintions no later than 2008)

At time of posting the latest intelligent updater defintions file is 20091202-006-i32.exe which includes definitions not later than 2/12/2009 this can now be used in conjunction with your Bootable Ghost CD to give your PC an up-to-date scan using the latest protection

Last note you will have to create the desktop file if you have not tried to run the original update file from the Ghost CD otherwise the script will fail feel free to add these line to the script if you wish that is if you can get the mkdir command to create the Update Locator Virus Defintions folder.

Make sure you have an up to date Anti-virus and Anti-spyware programs running. You can find many respected freeware at majorgeeks.com.
Also make sure you have the latest drivers for you network card and as a last step the lastest revision of your routers firmware. Try these solutions in that order.

Cannot save change to mcfee, to allow webcam to work with msn messenger live


In my oppinion, ditch McAfee and simply use the Windows Firewall together with a free Virus Scanner such as AVG.
People will tell you that AVG is bad, however with a little bit of research you will find that it actually scores better than Norton -and- McAfee.
For added security you may also want to make sure that your routers firewall is turned on.
A simple spyware scan once a week or when ever convenient with something like SpyBot will do.

Windows xp hangs at boot up.Shows background theme but takes forever just for icons to show up. Using ibm Thinkpad T42. Don't dare use any registry fix, last time it trashed my hard drive.


your symptoms sound as if you have a trojan or virus running in the background, i assume you have an upto date antivirus programme, if so start your pc in safe mode (press F8 key on startup) and then select start windows in safe mode, when you select your operating system, it will load the minimum of drivers and give an administrator account.

Click on this account and then run the antivirus and spyware programme, then restart your pc.

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610


try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
