Tip

Do you have problems with virus and worms you cant get rid of ???


Here is a great program to remove virus and malware.<br /> <br /> Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a surprisingly effective freeware antimalware tool. It's a relatively speedy malware remover, with the quick scan taking about 8 minutes even with other high-resource programs running. The heuristics engine proved on multiple computers during empirical testing that it was capable of determining the difference between false positives and dangerous apps. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html">http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html</a><br />

My system is very slowly proccessed how to keep faster


Hi karthik17v...

You have a couple of things you can do to speed up your system
1...Clean the disk...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup..Check the boxes/programs you want to clean-up
2...Defrag the HD...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragment
3...Add as much memory as the computer will allow.
5. Install and use a ram memory saver program...it will clean and allow the reuse of your Ram...
You can download a free ram optimizer from this webpage: http://download.cnet.com/Free-Ram-Optimizer-XP/3000-2086_4-10238479.html?tag=mncol;1
6...Check your computer for virus's,worms,trojans.
You can do this for FREE.
It may take a while to scan and clean your computer, depending on your Hard Drive size.
If the Microsoft Safety Scanner does not remove all the virus/worms/trojans...you will be given an opportunity to talk to a Microsoft Professional (via a chat window) and he/she will take over your computer (with your permission) and finish removing the virus,trojan,worm for you for FREE...
Go to the following webpage and download,install and run Microsoft Safety Scanner:

Hi yolandaskidm...
Sounds like you have a virus or maybe a trojan/worm/etc. on your computer.
Go to the following website, download, install and run Microsoft Safety Scanner.
After you have it installed the run the program, it may take quite a while to complete depending on how many files you have on your computer.
Once you have it installed you will run Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus/trojan/worm,etc from your machine for FREE.
If it does not get rid of the virus/trojan/worm/etc then a window will open and allow you to contact a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over your machine (with your permission) and remove it for you for FREE.

Virus + Graphic Card Issues.


first of all you don't have a virus, it is worm/spyware. there are a lot of programs out there and they don't get rid of the same worms/spyware.
make a note of the site you are directed to and google this and you will come up with programs that will get rid of it.
you will have to pay, but it's worth it in the end.

My computer has an email worm and am unsure about fixing it.


What this will do is reset your computer back to factory defaults like you had just got it out of the box. This would fix the problem for sure. Of course you could also go here as well and download the win32.brontok removal tool. http://www.bitdefender.com/VIRUS-157247-en--Win32.Brontok.A@mm.html This program will remove any instance of the worm on your computer and get rid of it. This way you won't have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Restting a desktop due to virus or worm


get rid of Macafee, it wont help

restore to the earliest point you can, will minimize the spread of the virus then

use an online scanner like http://www.pandasoftware.com/ActiveScan/
and install
AVG free http://free.grisoft.com
Avast free http://www.avast.com or
FProt
or another av system that works,
Macafee and Norton are definitely counterindicated

system restore should be reset to the maximum disk space allowable, the tweaks espoused by many, of reducing disk space for system restore causes problems like this.
resetting the restore size will not magically replace missing system restore points, they are gone, but will give you more days worth of repair time in future, it will happen again.

Norton failed to detect worm.win32.netsky. My computer is infected with the virus and I need help. Patti


Hello Patti,

First, you need to update the Norton with the latest virus definitions and perform a scan again. It may detect the virus and remove it.

If it does not, we need to format the hard drive of the computer and reinstall the operating system as it is the most effective way to get rid of the virus.

Wish you good luck

Pat
