    Just downloading more gadgets is not going to solve my problem because it looks like I have lost The sidebar .exe application program. It says it does not exist. I have read that this sidebar program comes with the Vista program, so doesn't it have to be somewhere on my computer yet and not really lost? How do I get it back.

Attention, for installing it, follow the pdf file "Read-me" which is provided with the download, you will discover how the different gadgets function, those which are in beta version, but also known bugs.

I have virus av.exe and cannot remove it


This trojan runs as a rootkit, so you won't see it when it's running. It is a single file in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local (Vista), or C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\AppData (XP), It is marked as a system file, so you'll need to use the Folder Options in the control panel, to unhide hidden and system files and folders. As I said, with the rootkit loaded, you still won't see it there until you unload it. It runs by changing the registry so that any .exe run, will instead load the trojan. Attempts to run Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox will also instead run it. If you delete the file, or your antivirus finds it and deletes it, the changes to the registry will mean that from then on, whenever you try to run a program, you'll get a windows message asking you to select the file you want to use to open the .exe. (if this is the case, you'll need to use regedit in safe mode with command prompt, or rename regedit.exe to regedit.com).

To defeat the trojan, you must undo the registry changes, then reboot to reveal the file, then delete it. Here's how.

Run regedit. The trojan will load and give you all the fake warnings hassle. Do Ctrl-Alt_Del, and find the process 'av.exe'. End the process. Now in the registry editor, search for 'av.exe'. You should find a section HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe, where the (Default) REG_SZ has been set to 'secfile'. Edit this back to 'exefile'. Keep searching and you'll find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile. Delete the whole secfile section. Keep searching - you'll find the odd line where it may be a recently 'searched for' item, where you can just delete the line, and you'll find it in a command line to run Internet Explorer. The full path to the trojan will be specified before the path to Internet Explorer. Edit this line to remove the path to the trojan, leaving just the path to Internet Explorer. A similar edit may be required for Mozilla Firefox. Find any other occurences of av.exe and deal with them in the same way.

Now, reboot the PC, and the trojan will not start up. Display system and hidden files, then go to the location of the trojan. Now you can see the little swine. Delete it, and empty the recycle bin.

Problem solved.

Enjoy!

Laptop infected with worm.


Nortons sucks. you should try an anti-virus scan with Malwarebytes, then you should install Avast as your resident protection. 

Be sure, when uninstalling Nortons, to use the uninstallation tool found on the nortons site. if you use the regular windows uninstaller, it will not remove all of it, and it will slow your computer down.

My gadets slide bar has gone how do i get it back


To open Sidebar


Open Windows Sidebar by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Windows Sidebar.
To keep Sidebar visible at all times, you must set it so that other windows won't cover it. The Sidebar width is a fixed size.

To keep windows from covering Sidebar

Because of the space Sidebar requires, this option works best if you're using a large or wide-screen monitor or multiple monitors.
1.
Open Windows Sidebar properties by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Windows Sidebar Properties.
2.
Select the Sidebar is always on top of other windows check box.
3.
Click OK.

Norton may not be completely uninstalled. You need to get the uninstall utility from their website.

Reboot after you uninstall Norton completely and then reset your brower software back to the default.

If that does not work reset your cable connection from ISP. What you may have to do is unplug your cable modem and router. Wait a few minutes. Plug your cable modem back in first and then your router. Reboot your notebook and you will be back on line. Not sure why Norton does this but it just does.

Please post update and rate. Thanks

I am trying to install Kaspersky and I can't because it is asking to remove the program named AVG8. I tried to with the advice posted on your website but it still is not working.


The first thing you should be aware of is that running two (or more) anti-viruses is often a receipe for disaster. Never install Kaspersky without uninstalling previous installations of anti-virus software, it's not recommended by Kaspersky:http://www.kaspersky.com/faq?chapter=17070...p;qid=169326413.

General removal instructions:

1.Uninstall the anti-virus(es) you have installed via add/remove programsin the controlpanel, then reboot after the uninstall is finished.

2.Next you delete the folder most likely left behind after the uninstall,use explorer to open "Program files" and delete the folder of yourprevious AV, if you get a "In use by other persons or programs" thentry to use a program called Unlocker(free), simply rightclick on the folder and choose "Unlocker" for youroptions to appear. Very useful tool for difficult files/folders btw.You can also use "Search" in Windows to hunt down & delete anyfiles/folders still there after an uninstall. Another thing you coulddo at this stage, is to run a tracks-eraser to remove files not usedand just using HD space, two free tools are: CCleaner (both builds with the Yahoo toolbar and versions without this)

3.Now would be a good time to use a registry cleaner, there are manydifferent vendors, but the one which i find most thorough and safe is RegSupremerun it (use normalmode only, not aggressive), when finished scanningyou rightclick and select "All", then you click "Fix" at the bottom, itwill ask you if you wish to make a backup and you do, just to be safe.

Mostvendors make removal-tools for use after removal via add/removeprograms to remove registry entries/folders, you can contact thesupport of the AV in question for a copy.


Removing Norton (even when it is already uninstalled via add/remove programs)

Nortonremnants is often a source of problems when installing Kaspersky, theseproblems can vary from small and perhaps unnoticed by the user tryingKaspersky for the first time and therefore thinking that it is normalfor Kaspersky to be a little heavy because this is what he/she reads onsome forums, to very severe slowdowns prompting the user to perhapseither contact support or post here at the forum.

Well, the goodnews is that Norton make some very good removal-tools and if you followthe suggestions below, even if they may seem overkill to you, then abetter experience with Kaspersky can almost be guaranteed and withbetter overall system performance to follow in most cases too!

The"bad" news is that you have to uinstall not only Norton AV, alsoSystemWorks, firewall and antispam if you use any of these (these canbe installed again when everything is done, just not Norton AV ofcourse!), however your patience and hardwork will be rewarded with amuch better systemperformance.

If you had 2003-2007 installed you will need the Norton removaltool. You download the tool from here.

You are also encouraged to use a general registry cleaner like RegSupreme,this will find and remove a lot of things so don't be alarmed if thenumber of problems found after the scan is several hundreds, thisnormal, most of them is harmless, but there will also be some which isfrom old installations uninstalled long ago, just let it fixeverything, it will ask if you want to backup and you want this, justin case. Download a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows Script for XP .......or Microsoft Windows Script for W2000 (Vista users should skip this step), Norton sometimes messes with this during an uninstall, so you may as well update this too.

1. Now you uninstall Norton via add/remove programs in the controlpanel, then reboot after the uninstall is finished.

2.Next you delete the folder most likely left behind after the uninstall,use explorer to open "Program files" and delete the folder of yourprevious AV, if you get a "In use by other persons or programs" thentry to use a program called Unlocker(Free), simply rightclick on the folder and choose "Unlocker" for youroptions to appear. Very useful tool for difficult files/folders btw.You may find folders from programs you have deleted long ago, you mightas well delete them while you are in there anyway. You can also use"Search" in Windows to hunt down & delete any files/folders stillthere after an uninstall

3. Now you run the Norton removal-tool.

4.Run RegSupreme (use normalmode only, not aggressive) and fix what itfinds. (rightclick after scan is finished and select "All", then click"Fix" at the bottom or rightclick again & select "Fix")

5. Reinstall Microsoft Windows Script and reboot. You're now finished and can install Kaspersky. (Vista users should skip this step)
