Remove virus


Insert your USB drive in the appropriate USB slot in your computer.
If the Autoplay dialog box appears, select "Take No Action" and click the "OK" button.
Launch your anti-virus program, such as AVG Antivirus or Anti Malware.
Select the USB drive for the program to scan.
Click the "Start Scan" button or option.
Open the scan history for the USB drive when the scan is complete to see a list of viruses and warnings identified by the antivirus software.
If desired, select the options to "Heal All Infected Files" or "Move the Infected Files to the Virus Vault" to ensure these files are quarantined from your system.
Highlight each infected file in the scan history.
Write down the file name of each infected file identified on the USB drive.
Minimize the application's window.
Select "Run" from the Windows "Start" menu. In the Run window, type "e:/" at the command prompt to switch to your USB drive (or type the drive letter for your USB drive).
Press the Enter key.
Type "attrib -s -h -r -a *.*" at the command prompt to remove the system, hidden, read-only and archive file attributes.
Press the Enter key.
Type "del ####.+++" where "####" is the file name of the infected file and "+++" is the file extension, at the command prompt line.
Press the Enter key.
For example, "del terriblevirus.exe" will specifically delete the Terrible Virus executable file. Repeat for each infected file on your list identified in Step 4.
Close the command prompt window; that is, exit the Run utility.
Maximize the window for your anti-virus program (which is still open) and repeat Steps 2 to 7 until no virus is detected on your USB drive.
Exit the anti-virus application.

or Click start click on my computer you should see your usb drive right click then select format.
another way is to control panel administrative tools computer management disk management Right Click on your drive select format

Hi There,

With the viruses gone you need to do a little cleanup. I believe your browser is probably clogged with temporary files and that you registry needs tuning up. Here's the link for a wonderful little application that can do the job for you.

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

Ccleaner is a quick install and does not conflict with any other programs. Install it, run the Cleaner first without changing ANY of the settings, then click on the Registry square on the left side menu and just run it and say yes to every prompt. Then reboot.

After reboot, one last thing;

Hold down the Windows Logo key on your keyboard and press the R key. A Run Command window will appear. Type in %TEMP% and hit the Enter key. Your Temp File folder will appear. Left click once inside the folder window then use the keyboard command ctrl+A. All the files will highlight at once. Hit the delete key and let Windows delete as many files as it can. If it says one is in use and can't be deleted, just let it stay.

You should notice a difference after following these steps.

Good Luck!

I need an explanation as to the secondary function of the keys on my NB305. Mainly the top row of 'F' keys, but the remainder of the keyboard as well. What do all these little symbols on the keys mean?


F1 through F12 are called function keys because they execute programmed functions when pressed. Used in combination with the Fn key, keys marked with icons execute specific functions on the computer. The function executed by individual keys depends on the software you are using.





1. Sound Mute: Pressing Fn + ESC in a windows environment turns sound on or off. Press Fn + Enter to simulate Enter or the enhanced keyboard's numeric keypad. 2. Instant security: Press Fn + F1 to blank the screen to prevent others from accessing your data. To restore the screen and original setting, press any key or press the Touch Pad. 3. Power save mode: Pressing Fn + F2 changes the power save mode. 4. Standby: When you press Fn + F3, the computer enters Standby. 5. Hibernation: When you press Fn + F4, the computer enters Hibernation. 6. Display selection: Press Fn + F5 to change the active display device. Hold down Fn and press F5 again to change the device. 7. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F6 decreases the display brightness in decrements. 8. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F7 increases the display brightness in increments. 9. Wireless setting: If your computer has both Bluetooth and Wireless LAN functions, you can press Fn + F8 to select which type of wireless communication you want to use. 10. Touch Pad: Pressing Fn + F9 in a windows environment enables or disables the Touch Pad function. 11. Press Fn + F10 or Fn + F11 to access the integrated keypad. When activated, the keys with gray markings on the bottom edge become numeric keypad keys (Fn + F11) or cursor control keys (Fn + F10). The power on default for both settings is off. Press Fn + F12 (ScrLock) to lock the cursor on a specific line. The power on default is off. 12. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (reduce): To reduce the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 1 key while holding down the Fn key. (13. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (enlarge): To enlarge the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 2 key while holding down the Fn key.

Toshiba Equium Laptop Keyboard Problem


Yo, I think I got this one.

Someone brought this model of laptop to me and the keyboard and mouse were shot. Totally unresponsive. So I downloaded the driver found here

http://support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/butsu-20070709123021.zip

which is described on the drivers section of the toshiba site here

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK&selCategory=2&selFamily=382&selSeries=173&selProduct=667&selShortMod=477&language=13&selOS=26&selType=all&yearupload=&monthupload=&dayupload=&useDate=null&mode=allMachines&search=&action=search&macId=&country=8&page=1&startPage=1&prevCl=true

to be the button support.

I did this all with a USB keyboard and mouse by the way.

OK, so now that I can actually use them, I start to test out the touchpad and keyboard and had the same problem all you lot did. I looked at the keys which were giving me greif and saw that they are all keys that had alternate settings when used with the function (fn) key. Turns out that there was a fn lock on the keyboard which I cleared by holding the fn key and pressing f11. This turned off a little LED just above the "9" key and voila, working laptop again.

To test if this is the problem with your laptop, press and hold down the "fn" key and press any of the keys which are coming up incorrectly. If while holding it down (cancelling out the lock, like how shift and caps lock work) the correct character appears on screen, then you too are suffering from funct-itis (tm)
