Try here for a/v and antispy. i recommend avgfree, avast or avira for a/v. superantispy and/or malwarebytes for anti spy, threatfire for unknown malware, and adaware for adware.
use only one anti-virus, the others can be loaded together as long as they don't scan at same time.
you may get a warning about adaware when an anti-virus is present but there won't be any problems with it.
all are free software.

Keeps restarting


I had a problem like this it may not seem like the power supply, may even seem new could still be the powersupply, also dont rule out using a hardware diagnostics or check your process list to see if there is a program that is not supposed to be running, followed by locating the directory and deleting the task if its a virus, virus programs are a joke I usually take care of that stuff manually.

Computer randomely shutting down


As a 25 years experienced technician, some times I have clients who come to me saying " I have a computer that keeps shutting down randomely " they had it checked by some tech. and he can't find a clue what's going on, even after changing the power supply...

The reason is that the tech did not noticed the swollen capacitors on the main board usually around the CPU or the RAM...

Conclusion! if your computer is randomely shutting down, befor changing any hardware, open the box and check for the physical state of the capacitors (round aluminium cans covered in a plastic shrink) the top are suppose to be FLAT not about to burst.

They can be changed by a proffessional tech. with good tools and lots of patiance (not to damage the feed trough's on the board)

Hi I have a security shield that keeps poping up telling me I have a trojan and a worm 38mof them. My McAfee tells me my computer is fine. But I can`t open up pages because this shield keeps poping up and...


A fella at work had this happen to his profile.
I fixed it for him.
I found http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-security-shield
on the above page it talks about putting in an activation code ( 64C665BE-4DE7-423B-A6B6-BC0172B25DF2 ) to the Security Shield app which shuts down the Security Shield and stops it from popping up.
Then you can delete it.
run some cleanup software

All videos are very choppy such as HULU or utube and machine seems to run slow in general . Start up and shut down seem to be slow also.


Downloaded videos can sometimes play "faster" than your Internet connection can download them, in the same way that parents can never keep enough food in the refrigerator to feed their teenagers.

Start downloading the video, and click 'pause' to let the download continue for 30 to 60 seconds, and then click 'play', to see if the video is "smoother" when the "buffered" content is being read from your local disk-drive.

If not, then the "performance" of your computer needs to be investigated.
How much RAM in your computer?
Windows 2000? XP? Vista? 7?
Is your anti-virus software working correctly?
Have you recently done a "full" virus-scan -- computer-viruses can cause your computer to slow down.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer, and then reboot.
Does the reboot go faster with _NO_ Internet connection?

Emachines w2828 keeps shutting down reboot/Screen Freeze


I dont thing this is a virus problem but a heat problem. if you dont mind getting inside the box see how clean it is and put your hand on the power box case .. then unplug all the hardware except the mother board then turn the unit on, if it goes on then plug 1 hardware at a time.
