Hey Singham, The message you are getting (system has detected a number of active spyware applications in your computer it will impact your computer's performance, click the icon to download the anti spyware) isn't a valid alert its basically the "virus" itself tryig to get u to buy a fake anti-virus. Typically Somewhere along the line of downloading / browsing the internet, you may have inadvertently allowed this nuisance to install itself on your machine. You can try to remove the spyware using several Anti-Spyware tools out in the market i.e. AVG Anti-Spyware(my fave), Symantec, McAffee etc or following instruction on this site for that specific trojan http://www.spywareremove.com/removeAntiVirGear.html hope this was helpful regards, babb

I haven't checked the link out but the chance of it not being a malicious site is too small to be worth bothering. DON'T EVER GO TO A SITE THAT POPS UP PROMISING TO HELP YOU OUT. My preferred anti spyware products are Spybot Search & Destroy and LAvasoft's Ad-Aware. If you can download the installation files onto another computer and then install and run them on your computer when it is disconnected from the internet and in safe mode, you are more likely to be successful.

I could not access my internet on my laptop having an internet connection


1. Contact your service provider and confirm there are no temporary downtimes.

2. Ensure you have followed the instructions provided by your Internet Service Provider to setup your connection.

3. Ensure you have not installed a Third-Party dialer or connectivity software, IP-Utility or Network application that configures your system networking or firewall.

4. Use your Antivirus or Disk Utility to check if you have been attacked by a Spyware/Malware. Spyware track your computer activity while Malware carry out malicious tasks based on the analysis of spyware properly positioned on your system.

Possible spyware has been detected


Try installing a program called adware, its free and can remove any spyware you may be getting. Try that and then see how it goes, you shouldn't have to run a recovery just for a bit of spyware.

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.

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP "MX6214" IS GETTING A MESSAGE ON BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER SAYING THE SYSTEM IS DETECTING ACTIVE SPYWARE. WHEN I CLICK ON THE MESSAGE, IT DIRESCTS ME TO A "VIRUS-HEAT" ADD...


It is a virus or spyware try running a antivirus or antispyware prog if that doesn't help you will have a choice live with it(easy, but annoying), take it in (easy,but expensive), or save all your important files and reload everything (little more difficult, but cheap). Hope that helps you out. Either way you do it make sure to always have antivirus and antispyware running, you can get good ones for free. here are some links.

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
