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

Virus Protection


I have observed that no Anti-Virus software gives you complete protection. Whether its from big known companies like : Norton, McAfee, AVG etc. To Keep your computer safe, try not to click on any unknown advertisements or links on the websites. Keep your Anti-Virus softwares up to date. In case, if your computer is infected than try to use malwarebytes and update it before scanning your computer. Remove all the infections and quarantine items on the software and restart your computer. It will be free from viruses.

A virus is a rouge program is created by nasty people who want to infect your computer either to disrupt or destroy your computer or to steal information from your computer.
It is very important to protect your computer with an anti virus program and keep the virus definition file up to date, because as each new virus is discovered the virus definition file is updated the remove the new virus threat.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

PC keeps restarting itself. Trying to log on to my pc ,get to first vista page to choose my account and it restarts. Cant get as far as the start up button to do anything.


Reboot in safe mode (at very first manufacturers start-up screen, press and hold F8, choose "Boot in Safe Mode". When prompted, you can either a) System Restore to an earlier date, or B) load and then run anti-virus software. I would suggest updating your virus definitions first, then running a comprehensive virus scan BEFORE trying the System Restore (many re-boot issues are code-executed, and are usually because of a virus). If you need to do a restore, pick a date well before the problem occured, as is may be an older issue than just the re-boot problem!

Hope this helps!

Unable to delete a virus


The best software available is called Malware Bytes. It is a smaller application that kills everything you don't want and is free. It can be downloaded from http://www.malwarebytes.org .
After downloading and installing, update the definitions file if not prompted to do so right away. After a full scan, you will have to reboot. Upon rebooting, run the scan again to insure every piece of malware has been removed. Works everytime.

I want to make up date for my symantic antivirus and idonot know how please help me thanks


Assuming you cannot access the internet with the computer in question (if you can, open Symantec and find "Update".

Here is the link to the area of Symantec to get the latest virus definition file;
http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/definitions.jsp
Get the correct signature file based on your program version under "Select Product" Download & transfer to the correct location within the Symantec folders (Follow instructions)

Most likely you'll need to be able to view your system files.
(For XP) Go to: Tools/ Folder Options/View/ Uncheck "Hide protected Operating system files"

Let me know if this helped you

Norton failed to detect worm.win32.netsky. My computer is infected with the virus and I need help. Patti


Hello Patti,

First, you need to update the Norton with the latest virus definitions and perform a scan again. It may detect the virus and remove it.

If it does not, we need to format the hard drive of the computer and reinstall the operating system as it is the most effective way to get rid of the virus.

Wish you good luck

Pat
