Question about IBM Aptiva E 530 (2158530) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Spyware ?? Seems that all the so called ''free'' spyware that's available for download isn't really free. Oh sure you can download a demo. It'll seach your system for problems but you can't do a fix unless you register to buy. Does anybody still offer ''free'' (as in no exchange of $$) on the web? I'm still running Win98.

Having a secured system is very important in this era of spyware and adware. If you are in the habit of regular browsing of internet you might have come across spyware and adware. Hence it is very important to use a spyware removal tool in your computer. Now days many such tools are available. Spyware removal and Spyware blaster are the same kind.

I assume you are talking about free spyware removers, because "spyware" itself is free of charge!!
OK, so you think you are infected? Here are some freebies to help you out.

1. spybot search and destroy
2. windows defender
3. spyware doctor
4. spyware blaster
5. ad-aware 2008

Check the program descriptions to see if they will work on Win98, which I believe they do.
There are more, but this should start you on your way. Finally, most or all can be found at the following handy site......

good luck!

Free spyware removal and guard dog software.


My review of the best spyware protection invented yet.

Every wonder is there a good free anti-spyware software out there?

You bet there is, and it was recommended to me by the pros at McAfee customer service.

It is called Super Anti Spyware. This free software is as good as any your dollars can buy, maybe better. They have the free version, and a professional version for $29.95. I believe that is a lifetime fee. The free version is not a free trial either, you get free updates for as long as you use the software.

In my humble opinion, both versions are power weapons in the war against computer hackers and the spyware they so notoriously use. If you have it on your computer, Super Anti spyware will found it and kick it out the door. Capable of detecting adware, malware, spyware, Trojans, tracking cookies, and if it's any type of infection, Super Anti Spyware has got you covered.

Possibly the best spyware protection on the planet.

Go to www.superantispyware.com to download and get protected today.

How do you get rid of a virus that has got thru my norton, firewall and windows defender. i think its a trojan?


You can try different antivirus like AVG, NOD32, or kaspersky, but if you really want to erase it then back up all of your data and then reformat your HD using the Windows Vista Installation disk.Or better delete the partition and then recreate it,this will 110% get rid of that virus. You may want to use a anti spyware utility like ad-aware this can also get rid most spyware/trojan out their.

2008 xp antivirus


Have you tried AVG? It is a free anti-virus software.

By the sounds of it "2008 xp antivirus" is a virus. The people who make these viruses often choose names to trick users into downloading their viruses.

This article may help you:

Here is a link to AVG's website. They offer totally free versions of their software.

Hope this helps.

You can also google "2008 xp antivirus". This may lead you to more how-to's on removing the spyware.

Yes. There are also free Spyware detectors. Spyware is worse than a virus.
Do the following steps.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

Avg will not load


Uninstall it and reinstall it. You seem to have spyware that has taken it over and stopped it.
TRY ALL OF THESE THINGS. Sounds stupid but spyware takes many things to stop it. Spyware can do a lot of things and it takes more than one program to catch all of it. Spyware will shut one program down and another program will have to repair what the other one did not catch.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system.

Sounds like spyware. You gave good information. You just did not give enough, but I will bet that it is spyware. The Clarification request did not make any sense at all. If anything it confused the person asking the question.
Try the following.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.)

These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (Free Download for Window Washer). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link.

The anti spyware software should not conflict with your anti virus software.
You can download two good free anti spyware programs:

http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html
AVG also has a free version.
