Hi! i can understand your problem. It happened to me once. I tried to run the PC in the safe mode but on safe mode it doesn't run the antivirus program. If you have your harddisk of IDE type then connect your friend's hard disk in your PC as a Slave and Yours as a master.
You can do this from your bios setup.
Then Scan his hard disk by your antivirus software and remove all the virus from his Harddisk.

OR else you can reinstall his Windows.

Please guide the steps to install the norton antivirus 360 latest version one user


The easiest way, open your CD drive and with that open shut down your computer. Insert the Disk in the drive and close it then restart the computer. The installation program should start auto automatically as windows starts. The reason I said to shut down then reboot with the disk in the drive is to allow the program to scan your system before windows starts to speed up the install process. If you insert the Disk and close the drive while the computer is on it will auto start and scan the system anyway but it takes longer. Make sure you stop and uninstall any other anti virus programs or Anti Adware programs, such as Spy Bot, you may have running, the Adware programs only need to be closed.

How can i remove webroot spy sweeper with anti virus from my computer?


To uninstall Spy Sweeper :: let Microsoft Windows uninstall the software automatically.
1.clicking on the Start Button
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select Add and Remove Programs.
Occasionally this method will not work, and produce an error about not being able to uninstall the software. If this happens right click on the Spy Sweeper icon on the right hand side of the toolbar where the clock is located and select exit This will shut down the Spy Sweeper program. Next press ctrl + alt + delete which will open the Task Manager. Click on the Processes tab. Search for spysweeper.exe. If this process is running click on it then select end process. Repeat this step to search for and close the process WRSSSDK.exe. After this is done Spy Sweeper should be able to be removed by using Add/Remove Programs

Computer infected with spy and/or viruses will not work.


To get into the Windows XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode with Networking" and press your Enter key.


Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Once in safe see if you could access the internet and then run this free Antivirus Software http://www.cloudantivirus.com

Spy sweeper not working


1- Install using this serial: SSDC-ONLN-AAAA-NNNL-NINC

Then

2- Go into the C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper

Then

3- Right click the "install.dat" file-->go to Properties--> at the bottom check the boxes "read-only" and "hidden"-->then click Apply

And finally....

4- Run SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe

Allow SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe to run on the next Windows start up, this gives you the definition update till 2020, otherwise, you'll just get till 2006!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.

Two errors. The first is RUN TIME ERROR


Hi, have you run a virus scan lately? If you sure your system is clean then I would reccomend you run the XP repair console. You do this by reloading XP from your CD and at the SECOND PROMPT select repair, this will allow you to reload XP and save your current settings, this will repair any corrupt files and install any missing ones. You will have to re-activate with Microsoft. Regards mistyman
