Re: Spyware problem

Hi snthaa; First copy the URL of the site that you are being sent to and post it here. To get your home page back. Go to your IE tools drop down menu and select tools. Then Internet options. At the tip of the box there is a space where you can type in the URL of your desired home page. (example: This should return you to your desired home page when you log onto your computer. If the spyware that I think you have is what I think it is then you have a pretty nasty bug. But there is a solution. Awaiting your reply; HELP2DIY

What is the difference between malware and virus?

Difference between the two terms is their coverage as all viruses are malwares but not all malwares are viruses. Trojans, worms, keyloggers, and many others, while not viruses, are also categorized as malware.

My vaio vgn-sr220 keyboard wont read some of my keystrokes. this has only happen twice add i haven done anything to the laptop.

Make sure you don't have any spyware or viruses on the laptop because that will cause some keystrokes not to register cause memory may be taken up by viruses or spyware.

Run your viruscan to make sure it removes any spyware or viruses that might be on the laptop. Also make sure you don't have alot of programs running in the background. A good indication is if you have alot of icons in the bottom right hand corner of the screen where the time is located. If you do, disable then and see if the keyboard responds better.

If you do all of this and some of the keystrokes are still not responding, then that means the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Malfunctoning keyboard while using Hotmail

If it only happens when using Hotmail, it is not your keyboard. Check your anti-virus, anti-spyware programs, could be a bottleneck.

Spyware on my 9'' eee Asus laptop

What antivirus have you installed on your computer. Have a ran a scan to remove the virus/spyware. We can go to safe mode, uncheck the system restore option from my computer properties, run a scan and then restart. If that also does not work, then we have to either try to repair or reinstall the OS. Let me know if you need any guidance.

Comptuer shuts down

This may happen due to few reasons.
1. If the laptop is heating up.
2. Virus/Spyware Infections
3. Program conflicts on the computer.

Boot your computer in the safe mode or in BIOS and than let it be on, monitor if it still shuts down after the same time, if it does that it is an heating issue.( Also see if the body heats up abnormally).

If it does not than you should scan your computer for the virus/spyware.

let me know what happens.

Spyware on laptop

Boot you computer into Safe Mode. Reboot and hit F2, F8 or F12 (Depends on the computer) but it will say on the screen. Boot to Same Mode and run the virus checker from there. That should find and delete the virus. To restore the desktop you need to right click on the desk top and choose properties, and restore it manually. The automatic settings never work for me either.
