Another choice is Spyware Terminator to help get rid of the virus. Here is the download link.

http://www.spywareterminator.com/download/download.aspx

Once the system is clean, I usually uninstall this app and install the free version of AGV, as advised by others above.

Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you.

How to keep your computer virus free


Many people that I have helped with computer viruses had recently purchased new computers which have virus protection included in the software bundle. The problem with these virus protection programs is that the updates are only good for the first year. After that, you must pay a fee to continue to get virus updates.

Many consumers don't realize this and after the year is up, do not renew the membership with the anti-virus company, leaving their computer unprotected from incoming viruses.

So, if you purchased a computer over a year ago, be aware of this problem. You will need to pay the yearly fee to maintain your anti-virus updates or get another anti-virus software available on the market.

There are some anti virus programs that are free or low cost. I have found AVG to provide a good quality free anti-virus program for home users. You can access the download at http://free.avg.com/us-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free.

Also, remember to be aware of emails from senders that you are not familiar with. Also be very careful about opening attachments on any emails. Be sure you know who sent them to you. Even then, if your not sure, verify with the sender that they actually sent this attachment to you before opening it. Email attachments are one of the most common ways of spreading viruses.

So, be careful and happy surfing!

MY SYSTEM DETECTED A VIRUS CALLES TROJAN-SPY_HTML.HN AND IT A POTENTIAL THREAT TO MY COMPUTER CAN U PLEASE ADVISE ME ON THE BEST PROTECTION TO DOWNLOAD NOW I CANNOT BUY ANY ONLINE PROTECTION PRESENTLY...


Hello,
The following link will take you to downloads.com to the free anti virus section where you can download a program for free until you are able to purchase one that you want. You can further refine your search by selecting what operating system you are currently running by clicking on the one you have in the box to your left of the screen. The following are a few good ones that I have personally used in the past and had no problems with AVG, Avast, Avira, but you can read through the choices and find one that you would like.
Some things you want to look for in a good anti virus program are: A resident shield (which is a active protective scanner that runs all the time by scanning things like web pages, other running programs, etc). A boot sector scanner or capability (some anti virus programs do not always automatically scan this section of the hard drive). If your system does not have a firewall, you can find some anti virus programs that have a built in firewall. Some programs will also have the capability of scanning your emails or help you fight Malware. These are just a few suggestions when searching for an anti virus program.
When you find one that you want, ensure that it will be compatible with your system by reading the "system requirements" and also read the "user ratings" on the site as this will give you a good idea of any problems people may have experienced with the product.
Some key things that will help keep your system safe: 1. Never open any emails that you do not know who they came from, especially ones that have attachments such as pictures, videos, executable programs (which will have the .exe extension at the end of it). 2. When you download something, never open it until you have first scanned it whit your anti virus program. 3. If you keep personal information on your system such as banking information, personal information like social security numbers, addresses, names, phone numbers, business information, etc you might also consider using a good encryption program as an added security measure. 4. Use a firewall program on your system as this will monitor your computer ports and help prevent someone from gaining access through them to your system. 5. If you do not have your computer password protected you might also want to consider doing this (in case your computer system is stolen, criminals will not have easy access). 5. When creating passwords, make sure you use a combination of letters and numbers and try and make them at least 10-14 characters long on anything you password protect. 6. Never leave the password near your computer or where it is easily found (again in case your system is ever stolen).
All the things I have mentioned you can also find on download.com for free. I hope you find this information helpful and is useful in solving any issues you may have. If you need further assistance please feel free to ask. I wish you all the best

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You.

How do i stop my computer from using redirect


Most of the time is a Virus. I suggest you scan with Spybot Search & Destroy, and remove whatever it show. Then restart computer and do Malwarebytes.
See how far you can go. Below is some helpful
INFORMATION YOU CAN USE.

A Virus normally corrupts your computer. IF You have to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data.

Best virus/spyware protection


be careful when using symantec, it is a real resource hog! It does a good job, but is also expensive and costs annually to use. I use all the same items as GregL except i have had a lot of problems with SP3 :/ then again i normally install it on a working machine, and it messes somthing up. On a fresh install of windows XP it should do fine (SP3 that is)
