Yeah Malwarebytes Antimalware it is a killer but lite to run. Just disconnect first out of the net for the meantime so it is free from outside interference.

Install, update then scan.

Also SuperAntispyware. For Antivirus try Avira Free this can also blocked almost new virus.

    To guest;

    If Norton allows it then go. Or if the malwarebytes allows norton not to be uninstall go on.

    But for me using nav2005 doesn't have an issue installing malwarebytes.

What you need to do is go to download.com, and in the search box at the top, type in "Anti-Malware" and click search. The first program that should show up on the results should be Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Download and install this program, then run it. Whatever it finds, let it remove.

Hi aljon toyo

Your computer running slow could be indicating a virus,trojan,worm,or other malware and also just too many old program and files.
To speed up your computer do the following in order.
1...Clean up your Disk: Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup.Click on the files you want to get rid of here.
2...Defragment your Hard drive: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter
3...Delete old files, programs,pictures, etc that you don't use anymore...this will free up hard disk space.
4...Install and Run Microsoft Safety Scanner...
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojans,worms,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.

Hi! my comp is nfected with a trojan masquerading as a security tool. it keeps popping dlhost.exe is infected with virus DOS.Jeff.812 this worm is trying to send our credit card details using dlhost.exe...


First try this but be careful:
To remove Trojan, you must first stop any Trojan processes that are running in your computer's memory. To stop all Trojan processes, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to open the Windows Task Manager. Click on the "Processes" tab, search for Trojan, then right-click it and select "End Process" key.

To delete Trojan registry keys, open the Windows Registry Editor by clicking on the Windows "Start" button and selecting "Run." Type "regedit" into the box and click "OK." Once the Registry Editor is open, search for the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Trojan." Right-click this registry key and select "Delete."

Finally, to completely get rid of Trojan, you must manually remove other Trojan files. These Trojan files can be in the form of EXE, DLL, LSP, TOOLBAR, BROWSER HIJACK, and/or BROWSER PLUGIN. For example, Trojan might create a file like
%PROGRAM_FILES%\Trojan\Trojan.exe. Locate and remove these files.

OR

If you can pass to the Windows interface you can run a Trojan remover like this one Trojan Remover at cNET. If not do it manually, instructions HERE

If your OS is Windows go to this link by Microsoft Online Scanner
also this one is a good one from TenMicro HouseCall

Malware threats


What your seeing is called Adware, they are trying to make you think you are infected to buy their software to remove it.

What you need to do:
Go to www.ewido.com a reseller of AVG, download the software and run a FULL scan once complete delete the threats its finds.
