If you have adware, spyware or malware resident on your computer, it can be very frustrating. It can cause your computer to run slowly, to crash, freeze up, and may even bombard you with annoying popups whether you are using your internet browser or not.All computers are susceptible to spyware and therefore everyone who is browsing the internet should have a good spyware software to protect their computer and their personal information. That's right! These programs can even steal your personal information!

"Spyware" is a term used to describe software that advertises, collects personal information or changes the configuration of your computer.

Rogue anti-spyware programs are classified as "spyware."
These programs change your Internet settings and redirect your Internet searches to malicious websites.

For example, when you search for "Google," a rogue anti-spyware program might instead take you to a website selling rogue software.

Examples of rogue anti-spyware programs include Vista Defender Pro, XP Antispyware 2011 and System Restore.

Fortunately, these programs can be removed so that you can access sites like Google again.

Click "Start," then "All Programs," and then "Windows Defender" to open Windows Defender.


Click the down arrow next to the Help button. Select "Check for Updates." Windows Defender will install available updates. This may take several minutes.

Click the down arrow next to Scan and select "Full Scan" from the drop-down menu.
Windows Defender will scan your entire computer and automatically remove any spyware that it detects.

I cant get locked in to www.hotmail.com since updating my AVG anti virus protection


Windows Live Hotmail normally loads without issue, but several problems on your computer can restrict access to your account.
Firewalls with high security sensitivity, malicious spyware and disabled cookies are three of the main reasons for blocked Hotmail accounts.
Hotmail also does not load if Microsoft blocks your account for spamlike activity.
This can happen if your account was compromised, or hacked.
Cookies

If cookies are disabled on your Internet browser, Hotmail cannot load.
Cookies store specific data about you that you have provided to a website, such as your name or address.
To turn on cookies in Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and "Internet Options."
Click "Privacy." Move the slider from "Block All Cookies" to "Medium."
This security level blocks advertising cookies but enables the cookies that allow you to access your Hotmail.
To enable Firefox cookies, click "Tools," "Options" and "Privacy."
Click "Use Custom Settings for History."
Enable cookies to view your Hotmail messages.

Check for Spyware
Spyware is a type of malicious software that steals your personal information or disables functions of your computer.
Spyware on your computer may block access to your Hotmail.
Run an anti-spyware or anti-virus program, such as Norton, AVG or Avira.
If you have a spyware or virus infection on your computer, these programs find and destroy it.
Some malware affects the "hosts" file on your computer.
Find and open the file "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts" in Notepad.
Look for "passport.com" or "hotmail.com."

If you see either, malware has possibly infected the file.
Change the IP address affiliated with the file name to eliminate the problem.


Blocked Accounts Hotmail blocks accounts when it detects spamlike behavior from them.
For example, if hundreds of advertisements are sent from your account in just a few minutes, Hotmail views this as spam and blocks your account.
If you are not sending spamlike emails or instant messages, someone may have guessed your password and accessed your account.
If Hotmail blocks your account, you have the option to enter your cellphone number as verification that you are the true account owner.
When you enter your number, Microsoft sends a text message to that phone number.
Retrieve the verification code from the text message and enter it on the Sign-In page.
When you access your account, change the password immediately.

Other Options

Your firewall may block access to Hotmail or cause emails to not load.
To determine if the firewall is the problem, disable it temporarily and try to access your mail. Firewall settings are sometimes set too high.
Lower the security sensitivity before you attempt to log in to Hotmail.
If you notice other websites not loading, reset your router.
This solves many connection issues.
Check the clock on your computer.
An inaccurate clock may block you from loading Hotmail.
To ensure your clock's accuracy, click the clock in the bottom-right corner of the task bar.
Click "Date and Time" and "Internet Time."
Click "Change Settings."
Click the check box next to "Synchronize With an Internet Time Server."
Click "OK."

Dear Sir, My spyware doctor expired last feb. 2011, insted of renewing it, i purchase spyware doctor with anti virus on line last jan 18, 2011. Question: 1- why the expired spyware doctor is keep on...


If i understand this correctly, you have purchased Spyware Doctor, but can't install it. If this is true, click "start", find "control panel" and click to open. When control panel opens, find "Programs and Features". Right click on that and open. Find Spyware Doctor in the list that comes up and right click on that. Click on uninstall. Click, next, or allow on all windows that pop up. At the end you will see "finish". When done if it doesn't prompt you to restart, then do so. Now go back into progarms and features and make sure anything having Spyware Doctor is gone. If so exit.
When computer restarts, install your insatllation cd for your spyware. You should either see "run" or "allow", or a window will pop up and, at the bottom of the window, You should see "open file with...". Click on that. This will open another window that lists your files for the software. You should see "autorun", maybe with a icon, or, 'autorun.exe". Right click on the auorun file and it shoul start your download immediately or will ask you to allow to run. When downloading, you might have to click next or allow on certain things for download to complete. When it gets to end, click on finish and if not prompted to restart then do so. After restart, you sofware may open or you may have a new icon in your group. If it doesn't open automatically, click on the icon.

I suspect your anti-spyware / anti-virus program / Browser are set too highly on the security tab. Try resetting to "default"

I use xp.. i download a file in internet after that ,everytime i start the computer theres always a virus(i have avira) but cant remove it..


Keep updating avira always and install spyware terminator to check is it spyware or not because avira free version only for virus but there is something like spyware, adaware, malware etc. Just try spyware terminator, update avira and if possible install Comodo firewall and block the unknown applications connecting to internet.

Try cleaning the unnecessary files using ATF cleaner (Simple and good) link below.

Spyware on my 9'' eee Asus laptop


What antivirus have you installed on your computer. Have a ran a scan to remove the virus/spyware. We can go to safe mode, uncheck the system restore option from my computer properties, run a scan and then restart. If that also does not work, then we have to either try to repair or reinstall the OS. Let me know if you need any guidance.
