Try downloading and installing the most current chipset drivers for your system. You should be using a SiS chipset, and these can be found on both the Acer website, and also on the SiS website.

Virus blocking screen and demanding money


Restart computer or laptop. Press repeatedly F8 and choose Safe Mode with networking. Uninstall any other antivirus solution. Install AVAST - www.avast.com and Malwarebytes Anti Malware - http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_pro/. Update antivirus definitions on both of them. Run Malwarebytes and choose a full scan. After the scan is complete choose to remove all infections and the computer will restart. Start again in safe mode, choose Boot time SCAN from avast and restart computer. Delete all infected files - it will ask for your choice: 1- delete, 2 - delete all 3 ignore 4 ignore all etc. Post here the results. If in safe mode you cannot connect to internet download Malwarebytes in another computer and use a usb stick to copy to infected computer. When you will use usb stick in another computer again scan it !!!!

Been working with iyogi and they found that my root system has a virus and is corrupted....I didnt get a restore disk with the eee1000hd so how do I format c: and reinstall windows xp?


Hi btray,

Before you format C:\ You can take the Hard Drive out and use an external usb connector and connect it to another PC and do a virus scan on it. Hopefully that will save you from having to do a clean install of XP.

Hope this helps. Give me a shout if you need further help:)

My computer has too many viruses. How can I erase them


Sorry!!! I know you don't want to hear this, but the best way to erase them is to do a good backup of your files on a removable media (USB drive), scan the media you back up your files to with a VIRUS FREE computer with a GOOD UP TO DATE anti-virus, REINSTALL WINDOWS FROM SCRATCH on the infected computer (hours of pleasure), INSTALL A GOOD ANTI-VIRUS than bring back the files...

Sorry but you wanted to know how to erase them!

My computer is showing me an alert about viruses and it just keeps popping up how do i remove the viruses


If you have an Antivirus installed, run a scan on your entire Hard Drive, and with any luck it will find and correct the problem.

If not you should install an Antivirus program and after it is installed get the latest updates for it and then restart your computer and then do a complete scan of your Hard Drives.

many viruses today prevent you from installing an Antivirus program once they have penetrated your computer some do not even allow you to visit the common web pages of common antivirus companies. if this is the case download the McAfee Stinger, this is a stand alone scanner, and let it scann your complete hard drive. Hopefully it will find any viruses and correct the problem. Afterwards DEFINATLY install some kind of virus protection.

Here a link for McAfee Stinger:

Here a link for Avira a freeware Antivirus Program:
http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus

if none of these steps work you should save all of your important data to another drive or USB and reinstall your windows. once again installing an antivirus program directly afterwards.

hope I was able to help

Before using your USB, scan it for viruses, also run antivirus scan on your entire system. After antivirus scan, clean Windows registry using some reliable software such as Reginout. Now attach the device. Thanks

Vista laptop "windows explorer has stopped working" error message


If you could be specific about where you downloaded the virus/malware there is a chance we could find a simple solution but it's unlikely.

The following should work but involves a fair amount of work:

1. Remove the hard drive.
2. Install it as a second drive for a different computer that is clean and has good AV software. The procedure varies a lot depending on the available eqipment. You can get USB to SATA and USB to ATA adapter cables with external power supplies very inexpensively that work well for this though.
3. Back up your data.
4. Run a virus scan and fix anything that is found
5. Most likely this will break a system file and you will have to re-install/repair your OS.

Sorry, no magic bullet. You have a tough problem and the solution will be tough as well.

One more thought. If you can get into Safe Mode with Networking, give one of the reputable on-line virus scans a shot, i.e. Kaspersky, Trend, Microsoft, Symantec, etc.

When you do finish this up, be sure to install AV software. Microosoft is now giving theirs away for individual users and it is excellent.

How can i delete virus from my pc using command prompt


I think isn't possible from there...I personally recommend to use an anti-virus software... The best for doing that is (Avast) the free version works perfect... i recommend it because Avast give you the option to make a boot time scan that scan your computer before windows start the processes where the must virus load and make it very difficult to remove... you can download it from (here)
once you have downloaded it > first: make sure that there is no other anti-virus installed, if one, remove it... Second: Install Avast... when the installation are almost finish it will ask you if you want to make a "boot time scan" click "yes", finish and restart your computer...When the laptop boot up you will see first the windows logo and then a blue screen...Avast will start to scan your hard drive...if any virus are found in your system it will ask you what to do... I normally use the second option "delete all" but you can do some other options. Hope it works for you!
