Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook

1 Answer

I downloaded a "spyware program", at first it wouldn't let me do anything until I bought the full version. After a while, the program just made my computer mess up my OS completely. I have an IBM Think Pad T42.

    when i run "ComboFix.exe.download" it says windows cannot find 'ComboFix.exe.download'. make sure you typed the name correctly, then try again.

    Well mate, i will guess that your pc is now filled by a lots of worms and other nasty things.

    Those "spyware progs" who force you to buy theme bofore using them are almost all ****. The good ones let you try the program first and evaluate it before buying it. I'm afraid you have to reinstal your OS to get rid of all nasty things.



    I hope that im wrong, but i think i'am not



    Anyway, i wish you all luck

My yahoo has become VERY slow moving. I wait 30-40 seconds each time I do something.


I suggest you perform a malware or spyware scan. Download spyware hunter.google it.
Run the spyware scan and remove all detected spywares. after that i suggest running a full system virus scan using Kaspersky, bitdefender, or any other anti virus you may have.

I have a toshiba satellite a-210 laptop only 8 months but it has become very slow to respond to mouse clicks. I am afraid I have a virus


You probably have spyware, especially if you surf the net a lot.

Download Ad-Aware from http://lavasoft.com/

also try spyware doctor: http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/?ref=afl_nenextech

Ad-Aware is a great program for scanning and removing spyware and is free. Spyware Doctor removes more spyware, but cost money for the full version. The free version will scan, but won't remove much without you paying for it. It is a very good program though, and the free program will tell you if you have infections.

Internet/spyware


Ok first off this antivirus program isn't the best. You might try going to the following website and download this free version of AVG Antivirus http://free.grisoft.com/ This program works great and best of all it's free. With spyware issues it's always better to have a few spyware programs installed because they don't all find everything. Some will find what other wont and vise-a-versa. Good luck with whatever you do.
PEACE
