How can I get rid of this problem? That keep pop up on my computer.


Your question is difficult to understand. You might want to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware update it and run it if you are receiving random pop up boxes.

My computer operates on Windows XP. Nearly every time I turn it on, it crawls. I keep getting messages about an unresponsive script. There is a button that allows me to stop the script and then things move...


-Try to use a different browser.
-You can also try resetting the browser settings to the default settings.

My desktop security says virus protection is turned off. the updates and firewall say on. i have tried everything that i know of to turn on. even the right click on the icon on the bottom by the clock. i...


First make sure your AVG is up-to-date...then to get rid of the popup click on the red sheild that opens the security center. Click on "Recommendations" and then check the checkbox that says, "I have antivirus software I will monitor on my own". that should get rid of the red shield on your taskbar. If updating your AVG does not work, try using Avast Free Antivirus...It's free and works alot better than AVG. Hope this helps.

Need drivers, reloading xp. No disks available. Can't locate p/n to get the correct drivers from Gateway.


Hopefully you have not tried to reload XP yet.

Back up the current drivers with Driver magician lite.
CD/Floppy disk/Mem stick.
Then have at it. :)

Majority of the INF files are found under C:\Windows/INF
Even then installing OVER your existing XP the drivers should still be there. Unless you tell it to wipe and start from scratch.

Some viri and spyware programs can be so difficult to get rid of or cause so much damage. It is easier to wipe the system and start over.
If this is the case:
Ounce of Prevention is worth a pound of cure:
Spybot search and Destroy
Comodo firewall
ZoneAlarm Firewall
(Basically anything but the windows firewall)
Tip: Only run one firewall!!!!

AVG Free virus protection
NOD32 Virus protection (excellent but not free) 30 day trial however.

Good luck!

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.

Everytime I turn on my computer whether I'm online or not the application svchost asks for several approvals from my firewall to connect to the internet.Any suggestions?Thanks,,,rickconstantin@hotmail.com


don't let it access the internet. svchost is a trojan, so do a full system scan with your anti-virus and get rid of it. if you dont have a anti-virus, go to the avg website and download it.
