(Accidents can happen.) </SPAN><br> <p><span>* Scan your files with up to date antivirus software. Use your antivirus scan tool regularly to search for potential computer viruses and worms. Also, check your antivirus program's user manual to see if you can schedule an automatic scan of your computer. </SPAN><br> <p><span>* Change your passwords. Using the same password increases the odds that someone else will discover it. Change all of your passwords regularly (we recommend monthly) to reduce your risk.

I am having problem in installing any antivirus.... infact m unable to do that....:( previously despite having kespersky updated ( 3o days trail) i had virus in my system..... what can i do to keep my...


Hi there,

First uninstall your current antivirus, it's just a trial anyway.
Download the free version of Malware Bytes. http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Update it then run it. (Check for malwares)

Then download the Microsoft Security Essentials. This one is for free as well. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
Update it then run it. (Check for viruses)

Microsoft Security Essentials will protect your system real-time while the free version of Malware Bytes will not. So you have to run malware bytes if you suspect something got in your computer.

Don't worry because they don't conflict each other.

Lastly, make sure that your windows firewall is turned ON.
If you are using windows XP, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click On (recommended).
  3. Click OK.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, follow these steps:
  1. 1. Click start, type check firewall status in the search box. A result will be shown above.
  2. 2. Click check firewall status from the results. A window will open.
  3. 3. On the left side of that window Click Turn Windows Firewall On or Off.
  4. 4. Select the option that says Turn On Windows Firewall. (There should be 2, one for Home/Private and another for Public).
You should be protected now.
Keep me posted.

Give the complete process of download and install eclipse


Well... That depends on what you are using Eclipse for. I will assume you are using it for Android development. If you are not, hopefully this will provide some insight on your application of Eclipse
Step 1. Download and Install the Java Development Kit (JDK) here.
Step 2. Download and install the Android SDK. Get it here
Step 3. Download Eclipse Classic Here (as zip file)
Step 4. Extract Eclipse to a directory where you can remember.
Step 5. open eclipse.exe , then select Help > Install New Software....
Step 6. Click Add, in the top-right corner.
Step 7.In the Add Repository dialog that appears, enter "ADT Plugin" for theName and the following URL for the Location: "https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/" Note: If you have trouble acquiring the plugin, try using "http" in the Location URL, instead of "https" (https is preferred for security reasons).
Step 8. Click OK.
Step 9. In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next to Developer Tools and click Next.
Step 10. In the next window, you'll see a list of the tools to be downloaded. Click Next.
Step 11. Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish.
Step 12. When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.

p.s. When I downloaded the 64 bit edition of the JDK, the Android SDK could not seem to detect it. So, I then downloaded the 32 bit version of all software (JDK, SDK, and Eclipse) and had no problems since. Also, even if you are not using Eclipse for android dev, after following the above directions, you will still be able to use it for java development.

What is google android?


Hi friend,

Android is an open mobile phone platform that was developed by Google and, later, by the Open Handset Alliance. Google defines Android as a "software stack" for mobile phones.
So, what's a software stack? It's made up of the operating system (the platform on which everything runs), the middleware (the programming that allows applications to talk to a network and to one another), and the applications (the actual programs that the phones will run). In short, the Android software stack is all the software that will make an Android phone an Android phone.
Android is based on the Linux operating system, and all of its applications will be written using Java. Google says Android will "ship with a set of core applications including an email client, SMS program, calendar, maps, browser, contacts," and more.
Anyone can download an Android software development kit from Google and write an application for Android.

Please rate me......

Thanks,,,,

How can i develope a new application environment?


For a beginning programmer, you should start with a programming language such as Visual Basic which lets you place controls onto a workspace and then program for each control. Most programs can be programmed in many languages, and the more powerful the programming language, the more complicated and longer it will take to learn. Microsoft programs are actually programmed in their own proprietary language, however the most popular these days would be the C programming language. There are a few variations of this including C++ and C# (pronounced "See Prime"). There are many resources for beginning programmers if you wish to learn on your own, or you can attend your local community college to learn programming a classroom setting.

How do i get rid of a W32.SillyFDC virus


The following instructions pertain to all current and recent Symantec antivirus products, including the Symantec AntiVirus and Norton AntiVirus product lines.
  1. Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
  2. Update the virus definitions.
  3. Run a full system scan.
  4. Delete any values added to the registry.

For specific details on each of these steps, read the following instructions.

1. To disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP)
If you are running Windows Me or Windows XP, we recommend that you temporarily turn off System Restore. Windows Me/XP uses this feature, which is enabled by default, to restore the files on your computer in case they become damaged. If a virus, worm, or Trojan infects a computer, System Restore may back up the virus, worm, or Trojan on the computer.

Windows prevents outside programs, including antivirus programs, from modifying System Restore. Therefore, antivirus programs or tools cannot remove threats in the System Restore folder. As a result, System Restore has the potential of restoring an infected file on your computer, even after you have cleaned the infected files from all the other locations.

Also, a virus scan may detect a threat in the System Restore folder even though you have removed the threat.

For instructions on how to turn off System Restore, read your Windows documentation, or one of the following articles:

Note: When you are completely finished with the removal procedure and are satisfied that the threat has been removed, reenable System Restore by following the instructions in the aforementioned documents.

For additional information, and an alternative to disabling Windows Me System Restore, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article: Antivirus Tools Cannot Clean Infected Files in the _Restore Folder (Article ID: Q263455).

2. To update the virus definitions
Symantec Security Response fully tests all the virus definitions for quality assurance before they are posted to our servers. There are two ways to obtain the most recent virus definitions:
  • Running LiveUpdate, which is the easiest way to obtain virus definitions.

    If you use Norton AntiVirus 2006, Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition 10.0, or newer products, LiveUpdate definitions are updated daily. These products include newer technology.

    If you use Norton AntiVirus 2005, Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition 9.0, or earlier products, LiveUpdate definitions are updated weekly. The exception is major outbreaks, when definitions are updated more often.


  • Downloading the definitions using the Intelligent Updater: The Intelligent Updater virus definitions are posted daily. You should download the definitions from the Symantec Security Response Web site and manually install them.

The latest Intelligent Updater virus definitions can be obtained here: Intelligent Updater virus definitions. For detailed instructions read the document: How to update virus definition files using the Intelligent Updater.

3. To run a full system scan
  1. Start your Symantec antivirus program and make sure that it is configured to scan all the files.

    For Norton AntiVirus consumer products: Read the document: How to configure Norton AntiVirus to scan all files.

    For Symantec AntiVirus Enterprise products: Read the document: How to verify that a Symantec Corporate antivirus product is set to scan all files.


  2. Run a full system scan.
  3. If any files are detected, follow the instructions displayed by your antivirus program.
  4. Delete the autorun.inf file from writeable removable devices, if necessary.
Important: If you are unable to start your Symantec antivirus product or the product reports that it cannot delete a detected file, you may need to stop the risk from running in order to remove it. To do this, run the scan in Safe mode. For instructions, read the document, How to start the computer in Safe Mode. Once you have restarted in Safe mode, run the scan again.


After the files are deleted, restart the computer in Normal mode and proceed with the next section.

Warning messages may be displayed when the computer is restarted, since the threat may not be fully removed at this point. You can ignore these messages and click OK. These messages will not appear when the computer is restarted after the removal instructions have been fully completed. The messages displayed may be similar to the following:

Title: [FILE PATH]
Message body: Windows cannot find [FILE NAME]. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

4. To delete the value from the registry
Important: Symantec strongly recommends that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify the specified subkeys only. For instructions refer to the document: How to make a backup of the Windows registry.
  1. Click Start > Run.
  2. Type regedit
  3. Click OK.

    Note: If the registry editor fails to open the threat may have modified the registry to prevent access to the registry editor. Security Response has developed a tool to resolve this problem. Download and run this tool, and then continue with the removal.

  4. Navigate to the following registry subkeys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\"load"

  5. In the right pane, delete any values associated with the worm.


  6. Exit the Registry Editor.
