If AVG can't heal the virus, you need another program. Try this one:

http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

It's Malware Bytes' Anti-malware. It is very effective when AVG fails.

    Glad to hear it. I usually don't trust new anti-virus software, but I'll have to check out Google Doctor.

Tip

The Best Free PC Security


Free PC Security: OS Microsoft Windows 2,000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7

These are the best free security programs that I have found that actually do get rid of mal-ware, spy-ware, viruses, and worms for free. If your security program is not protecting your system very well, or it is an older paid for version that is now out of date and will not update any longer unless you purchase the new version, then you might do well to download and install these very powerful and efficient security programs.

You should only have one anti-virus/anti-spy-ware program installed and running on your PC or a conflict can occur, besides the fact that there would be an un-necessary use of the system resources. If you remove your old security program be sure to remove it from the add and remove programs in the control panel (some security programs have to be disabled before they can be removed). Also mal-ware is not the same as viruses, spy-ware, or worms. Malwarebytes will not remove any viruses, spy-ware, or worms, and AVG will not remove any mal-ware either.

AVG-Free Edition will automatically update itself and run security scans, it can be set from the AVG control panel in tools, advanced settings, schedules. You should set up the schedule so that it will update and scan at a time when the PC is not in use (usually during the middle of the night).

Also be sure that the Microsoft auto-update is not scheduled to run at the same time that you scheduled AVG to update or run a scan, if it is then change the Microsoft auto-update settings to something that will not run at the same time that AVG runs, for example (evryday 9:00 a.m., every Sunday 9:00 a.m., etc.). You can change the Microsoft auto-update settings in control panel, auto-updates.

Malwarebytes is the best free anti mal-ware program that I have found, the free edition will not auto-update or auto-scan and these functions must be manually done, but that is trivial compared to the protection that this program provides. After Malwarebytes has been installed, update it from the update tab and then check for any updates, after any updates then run a scan from the scanner tab, and then select a Full scan for the first time.

If you are using Vista right click on Malwrebytes and select Run As Administrator.

To fully protect your PC, Malwarebytes should be ran anytime that you close your web browser and are done using the internet, you should run a quick scan and if any malware is found then you should also run a full scan to be sure that the malware has been completely purged from your entire PC.

You can also protect your PC from known rogue web sites by downloading and installing SpywareBlaster, it does not scan for anything, and it does not remove anything, SpywareBlaster will prevent your internet explorer from connecting to known restricted, harmful, or rogue web sites for an added layer of protection.

Download AVG-Free Edition from here;

http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=mncol

Download Malwarebytes from here;

Download SpywareBlaster from here;

http://download.cnet.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=mncol

These security programs will do a very good job at protecting your PC from internet threats. I used to have to fight these threats all the time to get rid of them, on either friends or family if not my own PC, but ever since I have installed these three programs on my system, and that of all my friends and family, it has actually become quite boring and I almost miss the battles.

Whenever I connect any removable drive automatically 4 shortcuts got created of control panel.


You have a virus on your PC. Unfortunately, once you have this virus, it usually does not help updating your anti virus and running a scan since the virus is running in the memory of the PC and every infected file the anti virus removes - the virus just puts back again. Try one of two things to remove the virus:

1] First update your anti virus (if you dont have an anti virus, download the free AVG Antivirus and install that and then update it. Click here to go to AVG's website. Once installed - Boot your pc into SAFE MODE. This is VERY important otherwise the virus will load into memory and it wont help running the anti virus to clean the system as the memory resident virus will just replace any infected file that is removed by the scan. To boot your PC into safe mode: Read this article: Click here.

Once you are in safe mode - Open the Anti-virus console and do a complete system scan.

2] Remove the infected hard drive from your PC and install it as a secondary drive in a clean, VIRUS PROTECTED PC!!! ... i.e .. any pc that has the latest anti-virus system installed and is up to date!. Once you have installed the infected drive in the protected PC as a secondary drive, run a scan on the infected drive and remove the virus.

Once you have removed the virus, also scan ANY USB devices on that PC, including any Cameras, cellphones, photo frames, etc that you might have plugged into the infected PC.

Good luck

How can i get product key for norton 2010


If you really want to protect your PC you will have to find a better security program than Norton. I have removed so many infections from friends and families computers who were using Norton Anti-virus, and I really do have to wonder if that program even works at all.

AVG is a far better program, and even the free edition of AVG will do a far better job of protecting your PC than Norton ever will, and the free edition of AVG will actually keep infections out of your PC unlike the paid version of Norton, and everyone that I have set up with AVG has really been satisfied with how it performs, and I use it myself because I have not found any program that does the job better.

You might also want to install an anti-mal-ware program as well, and mal-ware is different from viruses and other infections, and your anti-virus program will not detect mal-ware, and the best program that I have found for that is Malwarebytes, and even the free edition of that program will work very well and it will do what it claims to do, get rid of mal-ware on your PC and Malwarebytes does that job very well.

Here are the links if you would like to try them out, and they will certainly purge the infections and mal-ware from your PC, and they are free programs so you really have nothing to loose, but you will have a lot to gain in PC security. If it were my PC, or someones infected PC that I was working on, I would delete Norton from the PC and I would install the AVG and the Malwarebytes.

If installing these programs pay attention to the installation because you have the option not to install any toolbars into your browser that you do not want or need, like a google or yahoo toolbar, and if you do not want them or need them then just un-check the boxes when they come up on the installation screen and it is not difficult to do at all.

Removal of AVG8


Try bootin to safe mode by pressing F8 on turning on the system then try to uninstall by going into the control panel [Programs(vista)/Add or Remove Programs(XP)]

By doing this you will be able to uninstall the AVG anti virus.
Then restart and the system will boot in normal mode then install Kaspersky. Never have 2 anti virus in a system. Just a word of caution.
Cheers !

After use internet my pc,s speed very slow.


Your computer may be infected with a virus. Are you running any anti virus software?

Do a simple scan of your machine using anti virus software - If you have none installed, download and install this.

I have included AVG as its free.
http://www.avg.com/

Log off from the internet and run the scans - if you haven't run one before this may take several hours.

The clean up should remove any old entries and also detect any virus which may be slowing down your machine.

Little red shield keeps telling me I have a security problem


You have a Rouge Anti-Virus malware, this is a virus do not download it will make it worse, the idea is to take over your computer and force you to buy the antivirus program which is actually just a list of places to download free virus removal software, All is not lost, if you have Virus software do a scan now and try to find it, if not download AVG Free Anti-Virus and that will take care of it.These people are from Russia and once they get your credit card number they will try to empty your bank. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star
