Question about Computers & Internet
Keylogger is a type of computer virus that monitors and records the keystrokes on your computer, then relays that information back to a third party. It can reveal your personal information and be especially dangerous if you purchase products online, use online banking or do other similarly sensitive tasks. The key to stopping a keylogger is catching it before it has a chance to log any sensitive information on your computer. Use a well thought out strategy and some basic software tools.
Open your Task Manager by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting the Task Manager option. Look through the list of computer processes on the Processes tab. If there are suspicious processes that you don't recognize, select them and click the End Process button. Your goal here is to do your best to stop the keylogger so that it can't collect any personal information from your computer. If you can't decipher which process it is in the task manager, you can start an on-screen keyboard so that you can type in commands for your computer without having your keystrokes recorded by the keylogger. Launch the on-screen keyboard on Windows XP by clicking on the Start button, going to "All Programs," then to "Accessories," "Accessibility" and then on the "On-Screen Keyboard" option. In Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Start button and search for "Ease of Access Center." Open this program and choose the option to launch the on-screen keyboard. Use this keyboard to type in all commands throughout the rest of this process. Use an anti-virus program to thoroughly scan your computer. If you do not have an anti-virus program, use a free online virus scanner from a company like Trend Micro, which offers a free online virus scanner (you can also use an online scanner from another anti-virus company if you wish). When you scan your computer, be sure you perform a full system scan and that you remove any infections you find. Use an anti-malware program to scan your computer. Download a free anti-malware program such as Spybot - Search & Destroy or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. http://corbitek-antimalware.soft32.com/free-download Free reliable antimalware solution with realtime protection and automatic update http://spybot-search-destroy.soft32.com/ Freeware detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules. http://malwarebytes-anti-malware.soft32.com/ Free and easy-to-use, simple, and effective anti-malware application. Install one of these programs and run a complete system scan on your machine, much like you did with the anti-virus scanner. Remove any infections you find. Restart your computer and scan it again with an anti-virus and anti-malware scanner. If infections that were previously found and removed are no longer present, you can safely assume you have stopped the keylogger that was on your computer.

Hi, In Windows XP SP2 ,assuming that all the viruses have been removed and there are no other issues, go to Control Panel, Network Connections, right click on Properties of your Networking Card or Wifi, in the General tab click on Install, highlight Protocol, click on Microsoft, select TCP/IP, OK. Btw, I don't recall Windows having any folder TCPIP. In any case, hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I think that avg is a great program. One problem you might be facing is low system specs. How much memory do you have and what do you have for a processor? Basically what is happening is that the avg file is still embedded in the registry because it was not properly uninstalled. Some of those programs are very hard to uninstall especially norton. Norton is a pain in the ***.
Anyways. One thing that you can do is go to start, run...then type msconfig BAsically you will go through the services and start-up files that you want to run. Uncheck if you dont want them to run. I suggest to hide all microsoft services. Now unselect any avg file.
Then when you restart since the system isnt trying to load that dll..then you may be able to delete it.
If not, at least you should be able to help a little.
btw. 2 antivirus programs installed on the same computer will cause conflicts as well. be careful I use the avg free edition and its great for me. Stay away from porn and warez/ free downloaded games...etc.

Run your anti virus in safe mode. Write down the name/names of the viruses it finds. This is very important so you can search for them and delete them. Delete them thru the anti virus in safe mode then restart your pc. Then go to control panel/internet options and delete all Temporary internet files/ cookies/history. It's best to do in this order: on general tab under home page, check if you see any "redirect" in your addresses or any changes from your original home pages. If you do highlight them & delete/re enter them correctly. Below is Browsing history/settings/view files/hit ctrl key and "A" key at the same time to highlight all temp files.Delete.On toolbar above click on yellow folder with a green arrow pointing up which will show you another file named Temp. Open/delete all.Close all windows. Go to start/search and type in each name of the virus/viruses you found first clicking "all files and folders", name of virus in first bar,scroll down to "more advanced options" and check first 3 search options. If any show up in your search pane on right side don't click to open them. Right click and delete. There is a free software called "Simple File Shredder". If you can now download get it for the files that won't delete. When you install it, it will add it to your right click. After searching and hopefully deleting each one, do another search of "prefetch". Open/highlight all/delete. Restart and most viruses will be gone. It's always good to repeat all of this again just to be sure. Then check your firewall exceptions to make sure there aren't any there. Good luck!!!
You mentioned LimeWire: clean out all downloaded files from there also.

Actually that addresses that keep pop-upping when you type the address is the history of the programs or the application form that is stored in the computer for future references or for fast selection... there are many solution for that problem. for example in your browser. if you use Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer all you have to do is to clear the history of the browser by going to browser options and selecting delete history button and you have to do that in each browser that you have.. but is you want the history of all the logs that you maid will be erased I suggest using CCleaner.. it will clean history in your browser and application forms and other logs in other programs........ you can download the programs in www.ccleaner.com and its free to use.. you can also configure the CCleaner what programs you want to erase the history.. TY
HOPE I CAN HELP
