Please follow the malware cleaning protocols in this link up through step 4 to scan your system for malware and remove any problems MBAM detects.
If you do not have an updated antivirus program running on your system, please download and install Avira personal from here as well, and run an in-depth scan of your system. If your AV licence has lapsed or expired, uninstall that application before installing Avira, as you should only have one AV on your system at a time. (It is ok to run MBAM in conjunction with other AV or anti-spyware software.)
Then report back with the results and we'll take it from there.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

    ps If you can't even get online anymore, you'll have to download the programs using another internet connected computer, burn them to disk, and install them from the cd to your desktop, where you can run the ATF cleaner, etc. If you have any trouble installing MBAM (some viruses block it's installation), simply rename the .exe file and it will setup ok. Then run a quick scan and allow it to fix any problems it finds...

Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer.

My laptop window vista is having problem to open the window suddenly Iam unable open my computer or any window prog So pls suggest me the error


While the computer is powering press F8 in 1 seconds intervals until you get the Advanced boot menu.
Select Safe Mode with Networking and press enter
Once it is booted up try to navigate around. If it is running at normal speeds, I would say your computer is infested with viruses If it is still running really slow and won't open anything I would say you need to wipe out the computer and re-install windows. Most likely your operating system is corrupted You can try the following to fix operating system problems without a re-install
Open a command prompt (Windows Key, then type cmd ) Type chkdsk /f hit enter, it will tell you the drive is locked do you want to run on next boot. Press Y and enter.
Type sfc /SCANNOW then hit enter. Let it run though and then reboot your computer for the chkdsk to run.
If it is still really slow in safe mode then it's a re-install of windows

IF NOT SLOW IN SAFE MODE (Do this) You can try and clean up viruses in safe mode with the following free programs Run the Full Scan and remove any viruses/spyware you find MalwareBytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) SpyBot (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html) Spyware Doctor (http://www.pctools.com/compare/protection/?ref=spyware_doctor_antivirus_compare_winningchallenger&gclid=CN2rsMjwlasCFQJOgwodCUtevw)
Are just a few.
I typically run through about 12 different programs on an infected computer. Then you would want to purchase some good antivirus These are the Top 3 http://www.webroot.com/En_US/index.html http://usa.kaspersky.com/ http://www.bitdefender.com/

How to Format a Computer with Windows Vista

Warning - Formatting hard drive information does not permanently erase the data. Even after a computer has been formatted, deleted files can be easily recovered. If you want to permanently wipe your hard drive by completely overwritting hard drive data, check out WipeDrive.
To format your hard disk during Windows Vista installation, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using the Windows Vista installation disc or USB flash drive.

  1. Turn on your computer so that Windows starts normally, insert the Windows Vista installation disc, and then shut down your computer.

  2. Restart your computer.

  3. Press any key when prompted, and then follow the instructions that appear.

  4. On the Install Windows page, follow any instructions that are displayed, and then click Install now.
    • If the Install Windows page doesn't appear, and you're not asked to press any key, you might need to change some system settings. To learn how to do this, see Start Windows from a CD or DVD.
  5. On the Get important updates for installation page, we recommend getting the latest updates to help ensure a successful installation and to help protect your computer against security threats. You will need an Internet connection to get installation updates.

  6. On the Type your product key for activation page, do one of the following:
    • If you are reinstalling Windows Vista, you should enter your product key now.
    • If you are not reinstalling Windows Vista, you can skip this step.
  7. On the Please read the license terms page, if you accept the license terms, click I accept the license terms.

  8. On the Which type of installation do you want? page, click Custom.

  9. On the Where do you want to install Windows? page, click Drive options (advanced).

  10. Click the partition that you want to format and click Format
    • If you have more than one partition on this hard drive and want to get rid them to make one big drive again, then select a partition and click on the Delete option for each partition. Once you have deleted all of the partitions, select the Unallocated Space partition and click Format
  11. When you've finished formatting, click Next.

  12. Follow the instructions to finish installing Windows Vista, which include naming your computer and setting up an initial user account.
    • If you do not want to reinstall Windows Vista, you can cancel the installation at this point and keep your newly formatted drives.

I have a pc that has a virus. i cannot get into my control panel and it wont install programs. how do i repair this manually


First try to install MBAM (malware bytes anti-malware) in safe mode (press f8 while the computer is booting) Boot in Safe Mode with Networking.
If that doesn't work, the easiest way would be format the hard drive with the windows disc that came with the computer. That is the best way to ensure the problem is gone. All your information will be deleted, so you will want to copy things you need or want to an external hard drive or burn them to a CD.
