Install malware bytes from a trusted site update it and the definitions then reboot your pc tapping f8 and go into safe mode. in safe mode run malware bytes. once cleaned reboot and repeat process. remember to delete any restore points as this can cause the virus to return. you can also run ccleaner and clean the registry as viruses tend to wreak havoc on reg files

SOURCE: Spyware problem

Hi snthaa; First copy the URL of the site that you are being sent to and post it here. To get your home page back. Go to your IE tools drop down menu and select tools. Then Internet options. At the tip of the box there is a space where you can type in the URL of your desired home page. (example: http://google.com). This should return you to your desired home page when you log onto your computer. If the spyware that I think you have is what I think it is then you have a pretty nasty bug. But there is a solution. Awaiting your reply; HELP2DIY

SOURCE: how will i remove the virus manually?

i hope you got norton off your system before putting AVG free on. Virus programs try to fight off other virus programs by postiong false virus claims to erase the other program. eventually they will kill your hard drive. You need a product key for a good virus protectant. Norton or CA offer good, reliable protection for your dollar. What i would do, is back up any really important stuff you have there, format your hard drive and install Vista again if you have the disc and then re-install it to permanetly delete viruses. Also your system maybe slow because VIsta needs at least a dual core processor and 2 GB RAM to work like a XP machine

Suggest you download Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool if possible on to your laptop. To download the version for your laptop's Windows 7 64-bit operating system, click on this link...
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=585d2bde-367f-495e-94e7-6349f4effc74

If possible, download directly to your hard drive and then run it from there. If too difficult or not possible, download using another computer onto a thumbdrive which you can then plug into your Toshiba laptop to run it. The Tool is tailored to remove specific infections from Windows AFTER it has been infected. Microsoft releases a new version on 2nd Tuesday of every month and the latest was posted March 8th. Clicking on the following link will take you to Microsofts Knowledge Base Article #890830 for details...

SOURCE: I have viruses in my

I would recommend a free anti-virus software, such as Avast! or AVG Free. I personally use Avast! and have no qualms with it after almost one full year of use. These should clean your computer right out of both viruses, and spyware.
Avast! download: http://download.cnet.com/Avast-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.html?part=dl-85737&subj=dl&tag=button
AVG download: http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition-2011/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11014801
Unfortunately, Acer does not have a system restore key available on their website. That would've been the best method.
I hope this helps!

Computer runs slow


It sounds like you might have some type of virus or other malware.

Here's some things I would recommend to start with:

  1. Install and run a scan with the free version of Malwarebytes, removing any malware items found.
  2. Run a second scan using the ESET online scanner, removing any malware items found
  3. Install and run ccleaner to clean up unneeded temporary files.
If these steps don't resolve the problem, you may want to seek professional help.

Free online virus scan


The possibilities are:
The memory of your gadget is not enough
It is overheating
There's a problem with your RAM
There's a virus in you're gadget

Online virus scans may be free but it's not trustworthy. I suggest you buy a licensed antivirus.

Hp mini 210 too slow


Well, the issue can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try http://www.speeduphp.com/speed-up-slow-hp-mini.html to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues. Best regards!

Have a virus on my toshiba laptop, can i resolve this by restoring the factory settings?


Hi Andrewfairwa.

Yes, you may remove all the security threats in the Computer by restoring it to the Factory settings.

But, restoring the Computer to the Factory settings will also delete the Data in the Hard Drive.

Hence, you may try performing a Complete System Scan to check for any Virus or security threats.

You may perform the Complete System Scan by using the Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer.

If you have not installed any Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer, you may perform a online System Scan.

Let me provide the detailed steps to perform the online System Scan.

You may perform the free Online Scan by visiting the below link:

http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html

Please open the above link and click on "Start Scanner".

This will start the free Online System Scan.

Once the Scan is complete, check if the Virus or any security threats are removed from the Computer.

If there are still any threats, then you may backup all the important Data and restore the Computer to the Factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

Solution for reho343

Viruses and spyware slow your system to a crawl by sucking up your resources and cpu. Check out Panda Scan's online free scanner. It's a nonbiased third-party scan that isn't located on your system so you get best scan possible. No virus corruption! Hope this helps.

I have a toshiba satellite a-210 laptop only 8 months but it has become very slow to respond to mouse clicks. I am afraid I have a virus


You probably have spyware, especially if you surf the net a lot.

Download Ad-Aware from http://lavasoft.com/

also try spyware doctor: http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/?ref=afl_nenextech

Ad-Aware is a great program for scanning and removing spyware and is free. Spyware Doctor removes more spyware, but cost money for the full version. The free version will scan, but won't remove much without you paying for it. It is a very good program though, and the free program will tell you if you have infections.

1gb would be the minimum I would run. 2-4gb would be ideal. Vista is a memory and resource hog. Please, upgrade RAM asap! You will enjoy your computer so much more.
