    Hi!

    Try to run an ONLINE-ANTIVIRUS-CONTROLL on that site, its free and it will help you get rid of that virus you go.

    Do that before you reinstalling the OS,you might not have to reinstall anything at all.

A good virus removal tool called ComboFix may help you. I've used this on several computers to wipe out virus problems and it's been great. This site has instructions on using ComboFix and links to download the tool.

Try this before reformatting your computer. Post a follow-up if you need more help.

SOURCE: Laptop got virus

type into your search engine------avir free------ and download the avir antivirus free program. It is super terrific and will definitely get rid of your whatever you have. I have tried a large number of those programs, include some I paid for, and none of them stand at the front door and keep stuff out. All of the others will get rid of it once it is already in but this one stops it from entering. It is the only program I would use for stopping and getting rid of viruses, worm nd malware.

Toshiba has some free downloads available on their website but they do have recovery discs (NOT FREE) for current models. I had a root kit problem and they advised me to search the internet for discs to match the system.

Can i install mcafee anti virus on my toshiba m40x that is 6 years old


I don't recommend this antivirus, even a good free a/v is better. Try avast, you can download it from download.com it is very good and I recommend to my customers as free option. Now, if you can afford $40 at year your best choice is norton antivirus. Before you install any antivirus you MUST uninstall any previously antivirus from your machine from control panel.

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

What the last activities that you have done with your laptop? If you haven't installed anything or did anything that would cause a computer virus gets into your computer, then most probably it's hardware failure. Try to contact the nearest Toshiba support near you.

If you did something like installing new software or tried to run some suspicious program from internet, either from email or website, you probably have become a victim of malicious software, either virus or wom. Try to install a good antivirus from the web. I suggest you to try one of these:

1. Kaspersky Virus Removal Tools, get it from: http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/avptool2010?level=2

2. Norman Malware Cleaner: http://www.norman.com/support/support_tools/malware_cleaner/

I hope this can help.

Right click "My Computer" and click "manage", then on the right side click "device manager" then look to see if any devices are flagged. You may have to install the driver for the card reader which can be found on toshiba's website. Toshiba.com go to support then tech support and select your model.

From another computer, download the "Malicious Software Removal Tool" from http://support.microsoft.com and copy the file to a USB memory-stick.

Carry the memory-stick to your computer, and run that M.S.R.T. tool, to see if it can "remove" the virus.
