If you do not have sufficient anti virus / spyware software then you most likely have a virus.
Clarify with what antivirus you have installed if any...
If you don't have any then I would suggest buying one of the following
Bit Defender Internet Security or Antivirus Pro http://www.bitdefender.com/2011/en/internetsecurity2011/?gclid=CLjrkuuU-6kCFQQCbAodJX-fZg
Webroot Internet Security or Antivirus with spysweeper http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consumer.html
or Kaspersky Internet Security http://usa.kaspersky.com/store/all-products?c_id=GOO1673628
Once installed make sure to update the software and run a full scan If you are unable to update the software Reboot the computer and press F8 until you get a menu Select "Safemode with networking" You should now be able to update the software and run a full scan

I have webroot antivirus and spysweeper on this home computer, but my husbands laptop has no security on his at all. Now he has gotten something called Security Tool virus on his and we CANNOT GET RID OF...


He is learning the hard way!!

Install "malwarebytes" free from the internet (Best free anti-spyware on the net) / install / update / full scan / remove everything that shows.

My strong advice is to PAY for an anti-virus program as they are far superior to free ones.

Cant update my spysweeper


Sometimes anyantivirus is reported as a virus code for another antivirus,
  • If any other antivirus is installed, please uninstall it.
  • if your spysweeper is expired, please obtain new version
  • uninstall spysweeper, clean registry, and reinstall it.
  • use proper authentication, sometimes administrator installs the SW, the user is not able to update it.
Goodluck

Antivirus suddenly stopped Working


Download Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, Ad-aware and Spybot, and run them all (one after another, not all at the same time) to see if you're not infected by some spyware.

Also run some anti-virus, like Avira - or even the online Trendmicro housecall (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/) to check for viruses.

And do that if possible disconnected from the internet.

If nothing is picked up by those programs, then you can try a system restore to a point where everything worked. Be sure to backup your data first, since you can loose some data with System Restore.

Unable to Validate Game Version


Two causes for this error meassge either you are not running the latest version of World of Warcraft, or your game files have been modified.

It is possible that you have a virus or program which is modifying files on your computer. Scan your computer with an updated anti virus program to make sure that your machine is clean. Then make sure you are launching the game using Launcher.exe
If none of the above helps they are a few repairing tools that might fix your game, you might want to check "Fix Wareout".

Good luck.

Your Trend Micro will only handle viruses, for website access, it's the SpySweeper. Try disabling SpySweeper and surf, if all goes well, you just need to configure SpySweeper.

Webroot Spyware Question


Hi kn21_83

Your SpySweeper program functions by viewing incoming programs requesting access to your computer, referencing them to a built-in definitions file that updates regularly, and granting permission or red-flagging potential spyware programs. So, the definitions file is very important for the program to work properly.

I recently had a customer's computer display the same error message, and the way I was able to work-around it and make the SpySweeper program work properly was to uninstall it completely, ensure that there are no other anti-virus programs that might interfere with SpySweeper's install (if you have norton for example, manualy disable it for the duration of the install), and download the most current version from the internet rather than your disks that came with it.

Now, there could be other things involved, such as a malicious program interfering with how SpySweeper functions. In that scenario, restoring your OS is usually the fastest method of restoring functionality to your machine. Hopefully it is not a virus infection, but if you run out of ideas to resolve the issue a restore is a simple fix that guarantees success.
