Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My brother my Sony digicam into the USB port of my pc to download pics from it, but upon clickingon the digicam's memory, a virus alert was sounded and then it became frequent, so my brother unplugged my digicam from the USB port. But upon opening 'My Computer' , it became evident that the virus had already attacked all my hard drives, as particular folders like 'Documents' and 'Photos' were automatically pasted on each of the drives (i have four four of them, C,DE,F) , all of which have a fixed size of 316 Kb and none of these folders can be deleted. Due to this , most applications on my pc are not running as they automatically shut themselves down within seconds of running them, even my Avast antivirus is stopping its scan within few seconds of its running and shutting itself down by itself. I have already formatted C drive, but the problem still persists. Do i need to format all the hard drives ? What seems to be the problem ?? Please help.......!!

Format all your hard drive and do a clean install, One tip though, how to avoid Virus attack is not letting the virus to your system, how? for example, a virus came from your USB drive, it won't attack your system if you cancel all the autorun pop ups when you insert the usb drive and do not double click on it, double clicking on USB triggers the Autoplay and virus spreads out like a pandoras box, If you get what I mean it could save you from virus.

Install a good Anti Virus of your choice and always update the virus definition in order for you to be fully protected and be very careful on clicking links on some websites, anti virus has a feature that knows if a website has a potential virus or not, use it.

How do I download pics from kodaf easy share with sd card


The easiest way to download the photos the camera to your computer, is to remove the SD memory card and insert it into an USB card reader and connect it into the computer's USB port. The computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the camera's folder to copy the photos to your computer.

My Usb ports wont work


Right click on "My computer" and get to the Manage computer. Then jump to the drivers tab and check to see if your drivers are still active or if you have any form of USB issues. The screen should alert you unless you have acquired a virus and they have deleted your USB port drivers. If they have, you can go to dell and download them again and get them going.
If they are there, right click and update them then reboot. Good luck

Usb port problem


It MUST be plugged into a usb 2.0 port NOT a usb1.x

Some usb devices only like the usb port they were first installed / used on. Try to stick to using the exact same port

You should not plug it into a usb hub

If you are using an external card reader for your phone card, make sure that it is not plugged into a hub and only use the cable that came with it, not one that fits but didn't come with it.

Also make sure your motherboard drivers are up to date and that there are no exclamation marks by any hardware in the hardware tab from system in the control panel.

If you are still having problems then there could be other issues.

janj1014,
Have you tried to download you pic directly from the camera. Use a USB cable connected to the camera and to the PC and see if it will read it from camera.

Hello Cbaltzer,

Try to use in another PC, your memory stick, and see if work, if so, perhaps it is a problem with your other PC, or the USB port, see if is 2.0 or 1.0 USB compatible.
good luck
