Some viruses do lock themselves to legitimate Windows programs. If they get delete, so do the Windows programs.

Re-installation is your next logical step.

You will have to try booting from your Operating System CD and "Repair Windows." Once you get the computer up and running, you should boot into Safe Mode and install "SUPER AntiSpyware," "AVAST Home Free" and Spyware Blaster (links below). These will have to be downloaded from another computer because you will not have access to internet while in Safe Mode. After installing all three, reboot the computer, booting into Safe Mode once again, and run the three programs.

Security adware virus Multiple virus programs (webroot/norton/etc) have been unable to completly remove this virus. I have a Dell Inspiron 520 with Vista 64-bit. Thanks


If MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool and Avast anti-virus boot scan do not rid your system of the virus, you may have to remove the hard drive from the infected computer and using an adapter, attach it to another computer such as a laptop or another desktop. The adapter attaches to the hard drive and then uses a usb for the interface. They can be bought at computer stores for around 20 bucks. Once you have attached the infected drive, double click on the "My Computer" icon and then right click on the infected drive icon. Scroll down until you see the selection for either "scan with MalwareBytes" or "Scan with Avast". ONce these scans are complete, replace the hard drive back into the original system. Another great scanner is Super AntiSpyware. All these are free downloads at www.filehippo.com

Microsoft security bulletin MS08-067-critical


Use this link to download this anti-virus program.
http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-professional.html

Then disconnect from the internet by unplugging your RJ-45 ethernet cable. Then boot into safe mode by pressing F8 and run avast to check for viruses and remove. sounds like the person responsible for putting a virus on your computer. I would not attempt to do anything associated with that. Hope this helps.

My Mcafee anti-virus is about to finish,how do I install Advast free,do I download advast then uninstall/delete Mcafee then install advast free with Reg key. Thanx in advance !!!


Multiple anti-virus programs on a computer conflict with each other, as well as installation may fail when trying to install one Anti-virus program when another one is still on the computer.

Download Avast
Disable your internet connection, or unplug the ethernet cable
Uninstall McAfee
Install Avast
Hook your internet back up
Use your reg key and update Avast.

You just don't want an unsecured computer with an active internet connection even during the short period of time between uninstalling the old one and installing the new one

Unable to remove msqpdxkciarrei.dll virus


This comes from a fake version of FlashPlayer that was released. I would recommend disconnecting from the Internet, uninstalling all copies of FlashPlayer from your system using add/remove programs then run AntiVirus do a complete restart of your system before doing anything else then run a full AV again just to double check then goto the Adobe site to download the proper version of Flash Player.

Fortunatly it's not a real Virus, it's a Fake Trojan! But I can understand it is really irritating. If this doesnt work please do let me know by commenting back on this site.

All the best
