Download Malware bytes from http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php Load it and update it then run it. You can use the free version as it will do the same as the pay version minus a few options. It is very good for finding a removing virus's and other nasty things.

Can't scan my system. webroot seems to be blocked. I was on the net when my pc suddenly restarted. Since then pc games are wrong colors, I can't reset my pc to an earlier time than the last time I turned...


"...webroot seems to be blocked..." and the other misbehavior are signs of one of the new "AIDS" type viruses (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). These nasty little beasts are written to disable your anti-virus software.

Fix #1: download rkill.exe to a flash drive on another computer. Insert the flash drive on a USB port on your computer and double-click rkill. If the rkill log shows it has halted a program, that is probably the virus. Now you can update and run webroot.

Fix #2: sometimes the system is too seriously corrupted to get it to run its anti-virus program. In that case, take the hard drive out and install it as a slave drive or secondary drive in another computer after you update the anti-virus software on that computer. Start the antivirus program and tell it to do a full scan on the infected drive. When that is done, you can put it back in the e-Machine.

Some viruses attack components of the operating system and the anti-virus programs disable or remove those components, including copies in the System Restore files. So, just in case you need to do a repair install, while the other computer is scanning the disk, see if you can get your hands on a Windows install CD for your version. Alternatively, if you can get the computer to run in Safe Mode, you can go through the virus scan log on the computer used to do repairs to see what system files were affected. Copy the ones from the other system to your flash drive and put them in the corresponding location on the e-Machine (note: both systems must have the same version of Windows, e.g , XP Service Pack 3, for this file replacement scheme to work).

What is virus?


A virus is a rouge program is created by nasty people who want to infect your computer either to disrupt or destroy your computer or to steal information from your computer.
It is very important to protect your computer with an anti virus program and keep the virus definition file up to date, because as each new virus is discovered the virus definition file is updated the remove the new virus threat.

Okay, i believe that my computer is infected by the "Vista Security" virus. every site I have visited said to use system recovery or an anti-virus, i cannot afford an anti-virus and the system recovery...


Hello
AVG is a free anti virus

Panda cloud is also free

You could also run a windows defender scan.

Try cleaning your internet files and deleting the history.

Error code LP5 with a number of unrelated programs


Many of the "crackers" contain trojans, keyloggers, viruses and all kinds of malware. I'd do a complete scan of your system with AVG or Avira anti virus, Malwarebytes and Super antiSpyware removers. All are free downloads from the net.If the "cracker" destroyed too many system files, you might be reloading your operating system from scratch. Don't EVER run a PC without anti virus software and a good firewall. Live and learn!! BTW, there are free video converter programs that work well. DVD Flick, Divx to DVD, DVD Decrypter, DVD Fab Decrypter. No need to try and crack legit programs.
