    Better to reinstal your OP, only then u can be 100% sure that all virus and worms are gone. If you clean it and miss ne or two your computer soon will be full again.



    And remeber to always have an updated virus and firewall protection

My loptop is so slow and how can i fix the error


Hi aljon toyo

Your computer running slow could be indicating a virus,trojan,worm,or other malware and also just too many old program and files.
To speed up your computer do the following in order.
1...Clean up your Disk: Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup.Click on the files you want to get rid of here.
2...Defragment your Hard drive: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter
3...Delete old files, programs,pictures, etc that you don't use anymore...this will free up hard disk space.
4...Install and Run Microsoft Safety Scanner...
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojans,worms,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Apparantley i have a trojan worm in my lap top, i have norton and caled them they say i have a problem and my laptop is out of warranty and i have to purchase another one is this true


NO, you do NOT have to purchase a new laptop.

What the people at Norton probably meant was that your Norton anti virus software has expired and you need to purchase a new anti virus subscription from Norton if you want them to help you.

There are however other anti virus software manufacturers out there that are free and/or will allow you a 30 day trial period.

To help you clean out the worm in your system:

  • Find out the name of the worm you have on your system (your norton program will tell you this).
  • Go to this page: http://free.avg.com/us-en/virus-removal
  • Click on the link that has the same name as the worm on your system (don't worry about the I-worm or W32 part of the name, e.g. if your worm name contains navidad you want to click the I-worm/navidad link or if your worm name contains bugbear you want to click the I-worm/Bugbear.C link etc.)
  • Follow the instructions on the page you get to in order to get rid of your problem.
Hope this helps ;)

Net-worm.win32.kido.ih virus free removal required


Have you tried AVG antivirus webpage? They have a free version of their software, 100% usable at :

http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11014801

Per their website, there is the following info on your worm:
The first version of this virus which is recognized by AVG as Downadup (alternativelly I-Worm.Generic) has been detected at the end of November / begining of December, 2008. Currently there are over 300 unique versions of this virus. AVG detects and protects against all known variants of the worm.
Hope it takes care of it. If not let me know and I'll help you with fixing it so AVG does its job.

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.

Worm


Hi there
If you have a worm virus in the system then you will never get rid of it!!
If you have managed to stop it in its tracks download "spybot search and destroy" this is free software and will locate the worm virus and hopefully destroy it, you can also try AVG8 this is also free software, before you use this software you must firstly unistall the old antivirus software

kind regards
