Question about Computers & Internet

Security alert pop-ups every few seconds

My norton system is telling me I have major problems. I have tried to
subscrbe to other systems like McAfee, CyberDefender, and it does not
go through. finally decided to subscrbe to Norton 360 upgrade as the
pop-ups say is necessary. It will not go through due to ''technical difficulties''. This has lasted hours. My bank has called and said some
security system wants to charge my account the $64.+ and I said okay. This also was several hours ago. I am having to type very slowly
as the computer does not want to cooperate any other way. Hel

Try going to trendmicro.com and look for "Housecall" Run that and see if it finds anything... If it doesn't go through with that you might have to format the drive and reinstall Windows after having backed up data (.doc files, etc.)

Rogue Virus Alert


There is a string of "viruses" out right now that will completely take over your computer. These make it hard to even restore your computer, as they block just about everything that they can. There are ways to avoid these and most people don't know that they aren't safe which is the main reason for the wide spread rogue. They look just like a legitimate antivirus or scan tool, however they are a virus of sorts in themselves. They will pop up on your screen and tell you that your computer has viruses on it and you need to download and run their scan, and although it is not something you need to download to have your computer infected, DO NOT do this.. it will ask for your cc # and the hackers behind the rogue will now have access to your cc info. There are many different types but they are all basically the same, or similar looking. Even though you have an antivirus program already installed, such as Norton or Mcafee, this does mean that you are exempt from this hoax. Tips for keeping your computer in good health and your personal info safe... keep your antivirus definitions up to date, run a complete scan on a regular basis, do not open any suspisious emails, do not enter any financial info into any pop up window. In addition to the above, depending on what antivirus you are using, don't trust any other "removal tool" Norton and Mcafee will always have their logo on their popups and in rare instances that they do pop up, it will not be in an overwhelming manner. Go to www.download.com and search for antimalware malwarebytes. Download and install this, run the full system scan, do this on a regular basis and you should be ok. Just avoid anything that is suspicious. If by chance you run into this pop up removal tool, disconnect your internet connection leave the window up and run a system scan with both Norton and the antimalware that you downloaded. Between the 2 of these it should be caught before it is too deeply integrated into your system. Also, always make sure that you have your most important files backed up, just in case a restore is necessary. I hope this helped out and raised some awareness about these rogue viruses that are running rampant lately! Be careful!
Here's a few screen shots of what to look out for

HI DEAR, I AM TRYING TO GET INTO MY YAHOO MAIL, THERE IS A MESSAGE PREVENTS ME AND TELLS(TO PROTECT YOUR SECURITY, INTERNET EXPLORER HAS BLOCKED THIS WEBSITE FROM DISPLAYING CONTENT WITH SECURITY...


Please make sure Javascript is enabled, then look for the following settings in your browser:

• Browser add-ons or extensions that block pop-ups or Javascript
• Security software such as Norton or McAfee, or other virus scanning software
• Other 3rd party web-assistance applications such as toolbars or firewall packages that block pop-ups

To locate 3rd party applications that may be causing conflicts:

1. Click the Start menu in Windows
2. Click on Programs
3. Look for above types of applications (McAfee, Norton, Symantec, ZoneAlarm, etc.)

If you are unsure as to how to disable the security software, please contact the manufacturer of the applications you have installed on your computer.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

Look for your Security Email Firewall settings (Mcafee, Norton , etc ). Got to Email protection > Disable Incoming \ Outgoing mail protection. That should do it.

I purchased the norton anti virus soft ware and it is not responding, i cannot sign on the internet


I don't know how many times I have seen major problems with norton. If you have norton antivirus, and you can ask many people, you have a problem with your system.

Try Kaspersky Internet Security. You can try the 30 day download. Use the norton removal tool from symantec to remove the software completely first.

When surfing, this ANtivirus 2009 alert came on and can't get rid of it. I've also gotten a green screen pop up informing me I have a SPYWARE.MONTER. What can I do? ...


Hey tjchan92,

Unless you personally installed the "AntiVirus2009" program or this other application, what you may be encountering are either misleading plug-in applications or your computer may currently have spyware installed. Generally, one of the best ways to determine what these programs are is to run a system scan using the full version of an anti-virus/spyware program such as Norton AntiVirus or McAfee VirusScan. Should you choose to do so, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the latest virus and spyware definitions available since new threats surface all the time.

Please keep in mind that I only mention Norton & McAfee as examples. These are by no means the only anti-virus/spyware programs available, and are simply among the most easily-recognizable brands available through many major retailers.

Alternatively, you may be able to minimize how often these windows appear by adjusting your internet settings. Doing so will typically block pop-up windows and banner ads from websites you visit, and can often be done by changing your Internet Explorer privacy setting to "Medium-High" or "High” through the “Tools” menu.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
