Hello install this program from here:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

This free version works great.
Preform a full scan, when installed.
This is also the best free malware remover available !!!!!!

You might have to run the program in failsafe mode by pressing F8.

Install also a better free anti virus program like this:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download

Please uninstall the old antivirus program, before you install
Microsoft Security Essentials.
Mse it`s not useing so much of the pc`s memory to operate.

Your windows version must be valid, to use mse.

Good luck

When pop-up appears, get to task manager, exe file number will appear.
Copy the exe file and number in Look in: My Computer along with Winweb then exe file #
4 files come up
shift and delete to remove files
I had to chg the adm of file. I think I got to it by left click on the exe file and go down to properties and rt click.
One I changeg that, I was able to delete and restart and it was gone.
No virus scan, Window Care One and another virus scan product showed no virus.
Some guy basically had fiqured and I thank him. My computer had to be figured out by me.

Go here http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php and download the Malware Byttes Anti-Malware Trial Application. That removes all of those Fake Virus Alerts. Just make sure you delete all system restore points aswell when the malware is removed, as otherwise it will just creep back in on the system.

You should have received a new Product Key for 2010 and must enter the number to activate your renewal. Also you may need to download the Latest version of the Norton Software. Once you enter the renew Product Key (you must be online) the Norton will validate the code and should prompt you through the rest.

I think I have a virus even though I have Panda security. I continualy get Security Center Alert popping up, I can't even access my files or e-mail


Go to download.com and download Malwarebytes Anti-malware from the top ten list. run a quick scan and be prepared to see the failure of your antivirus. I would ditch the Panda and go with something free like Avast which can also be found on download.com...I don't trust antivirus but i trust that one more than others...the rest of the tech world would agree.

Window sercurity say's there's no anti-virus running.


If you are positive you have any anti virus installed, you can disable the notification.

Click Start, then go to Control Panel. In Control Panel, open Security Center.

On the left hand side of the window, click " Change the way security center alerts me"

Uncheck Virus Protection and click OK.

Avira antivir guard: attention, dtection window


Hi,
If it's the free version of Antivir that you are using then there is no way to disable the pop up advertising window.
I use Antivir myself and i have looked everywhere to try and find how to disable the annoying pop up with no luck.
If you don't want any annoying adverts then try AVG Free instead.
Get AVG Free here >>>>>>>>

Keeps poping up


Hi,
I have AVG as well and know the aggravation. I guess I can't complain too much, my version is the freebie.
I just hate that you can't stop the scan even when you tell it to cancel.
About all I can suggest, is that you go into your settings and create a scan schedule for your PC, to run when you're not using it. Mine is scheduled to run at midnight. Leave the PC on that day to insure the scan takes place, or it will want to scan whenever you next turn on the PC.
AVG has been a good protection for my PC.
Hope this helps...

To eliminate popup AOL's SpyZapper No Longer Available


AOL FINALLY listed the way to remove this major annoyance.
And it actually WORKS.

Delete the SpyZapper components manually. Log in to your computer using the administrator username and password, and then search and delete the following files:
  • AOLszs.drv
  • settings.ini
  • OptScan.exe
Note: Generally these files are located as below:
AOLszs.drv & settings.ini files location:
  • In Windows Vista: C:\ProgramData\AOL
  • In Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AOL
OptScan.exe file location:
  • In Windows Vista: C:\ProgramData\AOL.
  • In Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AOL\C_AOL 9.1
