Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

On Tuesday, last week my computer with Win XP was working fine. The next day, Trend Micro picked a virus. The Outlook looks bleached except for horizontal lines. All services were disabled. I changed the services to automatic and started the above. Yest the Outlook looks blanched yet operable. Today, I ran TrendMicro, AVG free anti-virus, Malwarebytes and Windows program to detect malware. The above scans did not come up with anything. I tried to repair the OS using Win CD. The admin passord is requested. The admin password is not accepted, prompting that the password inputed is not the correct one. Any suggestions on how to repair the OS? I could not get repair to work today either. Thanks.

The admin password is requested when you try to enter the Repair Console on the installation CD, so you did not run a Repair Install, correct?

The quickest solution would be to try a System Restore back to Tuesday of last week or earlier. You can find System Restore under Start Button->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools

How do I get micro trend off my system w/o password


Greetings,
First thing I would do in your case is get a free program that will delete files and erase them completely. Click Here for that. Now I would go to control panel and go to add or remove programs if Windows 7 your using go to control panel select programs and features.
Find Micro Trend and remove it from your programs. If it will remove all the files then go to Windows Security Essentials. This is that easiest and free anti-virus software and I use it without a hitch. For those of us who do not like to spend or waste money on virus software that is over-inflated in price for one and you can get what you need works just as good and in some cases even better. Simple to install and does not cost a dime.
I find it amazing how these companies especially the average user gets burned buying anti-virus software when it is free to download. That is how to deal with that issue. When your finished uninstalling Micro Trend off of your computer a pop up will appear and say your computer is at risk you need to install antivirus software. That is when you know you got rid of it. Now Click Here to get the free stuff be sure to pick your Windows Operating System correctly 32 bit most likely will do you fine, that is the most common..........John

You might like to try a WEB based virus scan before you try a complete restore. :-

Trend Micro HouseCall
Many computer users rely on Trend Micro for their antivirus needs but when you’ve got a virus, sometimes your installed version won’t boot up, so the company’s got a free online scan that can be used by anyone in this situation, not just Trend Micro users. It’s called HouseCall and it’s a free virus scan that you can get right now... just go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com. When you get there, click on Launch HouseCall 6.5 (you have to have Java or ActiveX controls enabled)

Norton Security Scan
Norton Security Scan is the online free security scan offering from Symantec, makers of the popular Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security products. If you want to start using this one, first make sure you’re running Internet Explorer 5.0 or above, and then head over to http://security.symantec.com and click Continue to Symantec Security Check:

My trend Micro is not scanning my computer. It is not during the auto scan and when I try to run a scan it just keep telling me that the feature is still loading. Please wait a minute and try again.


If you have the installation Disk for the trend micro pc-cillin.. then try to uninstall & reinstall the software as it fixes a lot of problems in case of application softwares like this... Uninstall the software with the help of the following utility..
Win Xp:- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Win vista:- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

... There would be a link to download the installaer cleanup utility... & would say discription of installer cleanup utility. & then reinstall the the trend micro software...

Trend Micro Antivirus/Vista Antivirus 2008


Hello there.

Unfortunately you have been infected, by the software called "Vista Antivirus 2008". What this software does is infect you, then prompt you to pay to remove the infection that it installed. So it is a scam.

What i would recommend is use the uninstall instructions from here http://www.windowsvistaplace.com/xp-antivirus-2008-removal-instructions-xp-antivirus-2008/spyware-removal

This will remove the infection (and others) from your system.

Once you have completed the steps, be sure to try an online scanner such as housecall here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
This will not conflict with your already-installed Trend Micro software, it mearly runs through your web browser.

On that note, Internet Explorer is not very safe for browsing the Internet with, i would recommend either Firefox or Opera for a safer/better browsing experience.

Hope this helps.
