The best way to at least get started would be to download AVG v8.x Free Edition AND Avast Home Edition on her laptop. Also, download CCleaner v2.1x. All are available from download.com FREE of charge.

Disconnect from the Internet -- remove the cable, if you have DSL, etc. Install CCleaner. Start the program and click Analyze. Once it finishes scanning for temporary files, click, Run Cleaner. Confirm the deletion of all the temp files. This will not likely get rid of much malware, BUT it will help the anti-virus scans run smoother and quicker.

Next, install both anti-virus programs and have them run scans at startup (one at a time). Then, reboot and run another scan with AVG. If it doesn't find any more viruses, then update both AVG and Avast -- and run a third scan with both programs.

By that time, the PC should be virus free. If not, let me know and we'll get more in depth.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

Get in touch with the warranty provider and they will probably have you ship it to them for the repair.

I have downloaded stopzilla antivirus version 5 online for free but now my computer wants the registration key to register stopzilla but I am not provided with one.please provide me the free key to...


stopzilla antivirus is a scam, not a real one - you got infected. Try to uninstall it and then run an online scan to see if there is something else in your pc
http://www.bitdefender.ro/scanner/online/free.html
If you can't do the online scan then the pc is beyond repair, you will have to reinstall Windows and lose everything in the process.
Once the scan is complete and the pc is clean download a real antivirus, like

My problem is that when I store some data in memory card then after some time that data is damiged and alots of virus covered


Hello Afridi,

First scan your memory card using the anti virus installed in your machine.You can scan you memory card for antivirus using the Avira anti virus.Please download the anti virus from :

http://www.avira.com/en/free-download-avira-antivir-personal?

Download the .exe file from the link.

Install the software in your computer.Remove the memory card from the phone and connect in your machine using the memory card reader and scan the card for viruses or malwares.


Then try the Data Recovery Software available in market to recover the files. Install the demo software of the data recovery software( Recover Data for FAT and NTFS) from their particular website. Then scan the memory card using the Data Recovery Software. If the demo software displays all your data you need then purchase their full version software to save your valuable data. Because in demo software you are not able to save the data. Please try the data recovery software for FAT and NTFS partition.

Please download the demo software from the link provided below :

http://www.recoverdatatools.com/download-windows-data-recovery.html

Download the software from the above link and install it. There are two recovery modes available in the software Normal and Exhaustive mode. If the software did not find any data in Normal mode than try the Exhaustive mode available in step 2B in the software. If you are installing the software in Windows Vista or Windows 7 then run the software as administrator after installing it.

Thought laptop had virus spoke to acer wiped laptop under acer advice now will not work at all use laptop for study only 18 months old thanks stephanie brookes


Have you reloaded your laptop's operating system, as well as all drivers for other parts of your computer, like Wireless and CD/DVD driver? Did the computer actually have a virus? Viruses best removed with antivirus software before wiping the entire Hard Drive. Let me know if this is not helpful ... jaye.ellen@gmail.com
