To resolve virus issues, I would recommend using Avast Antivirus. It is free for home use, and after installation will allow you to run a boot-time scan that will take out any viruses before windows even loads. You can get the software at www.avast.com

I am getting message when attempting to open links, "Server not found"?


Email links is when you are getting this message or is it when you try to open an internet browser to go to any web page?

If you're on the internet successfully and you are clicking a email link, then I would say the link is bad. You can type the address of the email provider and see if you can get there successfully. If you don't know the address just go to www.google.com and in the search box type your email provider. Example: Yahoo Mail or Google Mail,or GMail or Hotmail.

This is what we call scams and frauds, just ignore them or if possible delete them, sometimes those mails are attached with spyware or virus. You need not to open them. Just imagine, how can you win without playing or without entering the competition? Never and never, it's not possible, even hardworking people earns through troubles and sweat, so don't ever believe them. Many people fell into this trap, but many have know their intension and have escaped, but still many more are ignorant and can still believe them. Most of those mails will show up on google search, try typing in the Subject line of the mail on google and search, you'll know what others are saying about them.
You can forward your mails to the following websites and emails:
Ripoff Report
Consumer fraud reporting
spam@uce.gov
Internet Crime Complaint Center

So don't waste you time and money for them, rather do your own work and report them to the given sites, services and emails mentioned above. There are still many more where you can place complaints, etc.. etc..

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If your hard drive is big enough try using Partition Magic unless you already have another partition. You can send your most important things like music, pictures and docs to the other partition. Then do a reinstall only on the C partition. Doing a system restore is drastic anyway putting your computer back as the day you bought it.
Viruses are great for messing up window system files and settings which without proper virus removal software, re-installation of the most practical partition (C) is the one to target your repairs to. This case most likely being reinstalling windows which by default is only on C. Be careful of your choices when choosing which partition to delete and reinstall. Pick only C. leaving (x) where that means your other partitions, alone.

Attachments to E-mail won't come up


Turn Off Attachment Blocking in Outlook Express 6.1 SP1 Introduction Many viruses are transmitted through files attached to e-mail messages. For this reason, blocking of attachments is now a standard feature of many e-mail programs, including Outlook Express 6.1 SP1. Attachment blocking has been available in Outlook Express for some time, but it is now turned on by default.
When using Outlook Express to read your e-mail, you may notice a yellow message stating: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: filename(s).” Please note that the attachment is still included in the message, you simply cannot access it because of a security restriction that can be turned off. These instructions explain how to turn off this restriction.
Procedure
  1. In Outlook Express, select the Tools menu, and click Options.
  2. Select the Security tab, clear the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box, and click OK.

  3. You should now have access to all attachments in your e-mail messages. Remember, you should never open an attachment unless you are certain it does not contain a virus. It is recommended that you save the file first, and then open it from the saved location.

G'day,

All of the documentation on the westnet.com.au site shows that your "Outgoing mail server" should be set to "mail.westnet.com.au", not "mail.wn.com.au". Please check both of your accounts in Windows Live.

If this doesn't fix your proble, could you please repost the settings for your two accounts so that I can compare them?

How to access my email


The first thing you want to try is removing e-mail scanning in TM.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer
of protection that eats up CPUs, slows down sending and receiving, and
causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes
and has even been responsible for lose of messages. Your up-to-date A/V
program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more, see:
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

Note that for some AV programs, it may be necessary to uninstall the program
and reinstall in Custom Mode and opt out of e-mail scanning when the option
arises.

There are several ways to remove viruses without loading an OS.
I have an .iso I can e-mail you and you can burn this on a cd. this will allow you to boot from the cd and load anti-virus definitions before going into the windows OS.
