    It says that I have a infected computer, and use the spyware 2009 to correct it well I clicked onto it like a fool and this nasty stuff came up, and it was suppose to be fixed but it is still showing up I don't think I have a virus now, but when I clicked on it I think it put one on my computer. My daughter has AVG and it is coming up at the bottom of her screen now, I will try what you have noted and see if that helps. Thanks for the advice.

Are you sure it is a virus?

Go here:
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
and run the online scanner.

Then to install a free anti-virus program - Go to avg.com and install the free version and run a scan.

Also make sure it is not spyware. Go to spybot.com and install and run that free program.

To try to help further, can you describe any info you can about the virus or issue you have?

    If you can find out the name of the infection, I can look for specific removal instructions. Often, small traces of the infection can be left on the pc and need to be removed manually.

    I also use ccleaner.com to help rid my pc of misc dead files and to clean up the registry. This is also free.

Rphelper.exe keeps popping up When I hit block it immediately reappears


Erase the software in its entirety and reinstall it again

If this problem persists, you may need to clean out your pc of any software corruption ( I recomend downloading Tune-up utilites) and scan your computer for viruses and malicious software (going to Kapersky.com and download Internet Security and run it)

This should remove all software issues if the initial reinstallation of Spysweeper doesnt work

I hope this helps

Cant update my spysweeper


Sometimes anyantivirus is reported as a virus code for another antivirus,
  • If any other antivirus is installed, please uninstall it.
  • if your spysweeper is expired, please obtain new version
  • uninstall spysweeper, clean registry, and reinstall it.
  • use proper authentication, sometimes administrator installs the SW, the user is not able to update it.
Goodluck

If you have Vista, try running Windows Defender within Vista. If that does not work, Spysweeper will get it.

Webroot Spyware Question


Hi kn21_83

Your SpySweeper program functions by viewing incoming programs requesting access to your computer, referencing them to a built-in definitions file that updates regularly, and granting permission or red-flagging potential spyware programs. So, the definitions file is very important for the program to work properly.

I recently had a customer's computer display the same error message, and the way I was able to work-around it and make the SpySweeper program work properly was to uninstall it completely, ensure that there are no other anti-virus programs that might interfere with SpySweeper's install (if you have norton for example, manualy disable it for the duration of the install), and download the most current version from the internet rather than your disks that came with it.

Now, there could be other things involved, such as a malicious program interfering with how SpySweeper functions. In that scenario, restoring your OS is usually the fastest method of restoring functionality to your machine. Hopefully it is not a virus infection, but if you run out of ideas to resolve the issue a restore is a simple fix that guarantees success.

Driver blockt work due to compatibility issues.


A user can uninstall the Windows Vista update that is causing this issue. Once the update is uninstalled you will need to wait until Microsoft has released a fix for this issue. Otherwise, a Windows Vista update may cause this problem to occur again if Microsoft has not pushed a fix yet.
To uninstall the conflicting update, do the following:
1. Click Start
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Programs and Features
4. Choose View installed updates
5. Select "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB943302)
6. Click Uninstall
7. Restart your computer and the update should be uninstalled
