Programs crash with no explanation.


First I would Click Start/Programs/Accessories and you are looking for the RUN command. Sometimes depending on your operating system you will see it as soon as you hit Start or Programs or All Programs. Once you get the run commad open type in "msconfig.exe" and click ok. This is the system's configuration window, Click the Tab that says Startup. The only two columns you are concerned with is the Startup Item column and the Command column. You can expand those two columns by placing your mouse pointer between two columnar headings and it will turn into a + sign so you can drag the column to see more of it. Notice that all the items have a check mark beside it under the Startup Item column. That check mark means that this application will run everytime you start your computer. Now look for items that have a check mark beside them but there is nothing under the command column or location column. If you see that remove the check mark from the item, it's a virus that's trying to hide. Also look for Startup Items that have the command of: c:\Documents and Setting\Your Userid Account Name\Local Settings\Application Data\xxxxxxx . If after application data you don't see some recognizable program then remove the check mark. Most virus attach itself to a user account under the local settings and application data area. Also if you see a startup item "dumprep 0-k" or similar, remove the check mark from it. *** Don't worry about if you remove a check mark from something you are unsure of, you can always go back in and place the check mark on it. When done click Ok and select the option to Exit Without Restart. This simply stops the virus from being able to get started when you boot your computer. You will actually have to kill it with a virus protection scan in the next steps.

Now you can then run your virus protection scans to make sure you don't have a virus causing the problem. I would take the time to run Spybot Search & Destroy and also I would Run AVG afterwards. In fact after spybot search and destroy finishes, I would turn my computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let your system boot up then run AVG in Safe Mode. AVG running in safe mode will not require any intervention from you once it gets started. However it will look a little different to you because the normal GUI Interface will not be there, instead you will have a Black DOS type window running will white letters scrolling as it scans. 99% of the viruses require the Internet Connection to function. As long as the internet connection is active the virus can function, hide and do all sorts of things. Remember you got the virus by some process of being on the internet. SAFE MODE disables the Internet so the virus cannot function or hide. Let AVG seek it out and kill it in SAFE MODE.

There is somethig seriously wrong with my PC. It was attacked by some computer viruses


Hi,

You can try to run a full virus scan in Safe Mode. To access it, you will either press F8, or Del (depends on what key was designed on your computer to access the Advanced Boot Options), after getting the Advanced Boot Options, select Safe Mode an press Enter key.

If your antivirus software cannot detect any virus, it was either not updated or was disabled by the virus. You need to contact your antivirus company to get help with manual virus deletion.

However, if you don't have any antivirus installed I suggest to just wipe everything off from the harddrive and start from factory settings.

Hope this helps.

My laptop has a virus,how can i remove this?


If you don't know what virus you have, how do you know you have one.

Anti-virus software removes a virus, unless you tell me what virus you have
I can't explain how to remove it manually.

Download two things, they are free,

Avira free anti-virus, this is the second best anti-virus software on the planet, and I am not saying this because a friend told me, this is based on actual testing.

Next, download Malwarebytes, they also have a free version.

Below I will post the links for both, these will take care of anything you have. Unless you only think you have a virus, and it just a windows problem.

It says

Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus
http://www.avira.com/en/download/index.php


http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Look down the page, and you will see the download button.

I you have a virus, this will take care of it, and if you need more help just
ask.

virus/spyware/malwares and all sort of those stuff are really a pain in the neck. for it to get removed will really require alot of programs and to say at least 16 hours and yet not guarranteed to be totally free. best option>
do a clean reinstall. after the clean reinstall do a flea power (unplug your computer from the wall socket and press the power button to drain any information in the memory that could still be hiding.)
