Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4384 Notebook

1 Answer

Error message on everything!

Yesterday my laptop installed System Security which only turned out to a malicious mal-ware. Fortunately I was able to go into safe mode and manually delete system security. When i rebooted in normal mode, the malware was gone, however, I have a bunch of application hangs and applications errors. Almost every program that I try to launch gives me the "application error, to terminate press ok" message. Not to mention, so does the System Restore program. I noticed also that my Intel(R)PRO Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection cannot be detected. I tried to troubleshooit as windows help and support told me to do, so i uninstalled to reinstall and cannot reinstall it!...How can I fix this problem?

    okay so i tried the MSCONFIG options and restarted the pc but still having the same problem. Is it that maybe i need to try some anti-spywares, would this help to restore some functions?

No need for system restore, just go to: click start then click RUN and then type MSCONFIG the choose startup and disable the program that are popping everytime you startup your system..

The Best Free PC Security


Free PC Security: OS Microsoft Windows 2,000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7

These are the best free security programs that I have found that actually do get rid of mal-ware, spy-ware, viruses, and worms for free. If your security program is not protecting your system very well, or it is an older paid for version that is now out of date and will not update any longer unless you purchase the new version, then you might do well to download and install these very powerful and efficient security programs.

You should only have one anti-virus/anti-spy-ware program installed and running on your PC or a conflict can occur, besides the fact that there would be an un-necessary use of the system resources. If you remove your old security program be sure to remove it from the add and remove programs in the control panel (some security programs have to be disabled before they can be removed). Also mal-ware is not the same as viruses, spy-ware, or worms. Malwarebytes will not remove any viruses, spy-ware, or worms, and AVG will not remove any mal-ware either.

AVG-Free Edition will automatically update itself and run security scans, it can be set from the AVG control panel in tools, advanced settings, schedules. You should set up the schedule so that it will update and scan at a time when the PC is not in use (usually during the middle of the night).

Also be sure that the Microsoft auto-update is not scheduled to run at the same time that you scheduled AVG to update or run a scan, if it is then change the Microsoft auto-update settings to something that will not run at the same time that AVG runs, for example (evryday 9:00 a.m., every Sunday 9:00 a.m., etc.). You can change the Microsoft auto-update settings in control panel, auto-updates.

Malwarebytes is the best free anti mal-ware program that I have found, the free edition will not auto-update or auto-scan and these functions must be manually done, but that is trivial compared to the protection that this program provides. After Malwarebytes has been installed, update it from the update tab and then check for any updates, after any updates then run a scan from the scanner tab, and then select a Full scan for the first time.

If you are using Vista right click on Malwrebytes and select Run As Administrator.

To fully protect your PC, Malwarebytes should be ran anytime that you close your web browser and are done using the internet, you should run a quick scan and if any malware is found then you should also run a full scan to be sure that the malware has been completely purged from your entire PC.

You can also protect your PC from known rogue web sites by downloading and installing SpywareBlaster, it does not scan for anything, and it does not remove anything, SpywareBlaster will prevent your internet explorer from connecting to known restricted, harmful, or rogue web sites for an added layer of protection.

These security programs will do a very good job at protecting your PC from internet threats. I used to have to fight these threats all the time to get rid of them, on either friends or family if not my own PC, but ever since I have installed these three programs on my system, and that of all my friends and family, it has actually become quite boring and I almost miss the battles.

I can't download the yahoo messenger 10 last night i had some problem with voice calling so i deleted to install the same version but now i can't download at all. please tell me what i can do?


There isn't much information to your question, so I will help you the best I can.

It sounds like you have a piece of mal-ware. Run a security tool such as Mal-Ware Bytes or Spyware Doctor. I highly recommend Bitdefender but it costs.

Whenever I turn on my laptop it goes to the screen that says safe mode, safe mode with networking etc... then when i click say start windows normaly it has blue screen that stays for 2 secs and then the...


Select safe mode !

If it finishes booting into safe mode then you can try another re-start.

If on the other hand it does not work after being in safe mode the issue may lie in some software you have recently installed or new hardware.

in either case remove that hardware or software (in safe mode) and try again.
If it still insists on re-booting when you select normal then I would begin looking at possible mal-ware, spy-ware or virus issues.

Should you get a specific error message then that may also be useful in troubleshooting issues.

When it scans and finds a virus it won't let me delete


Then if you can quarantine that in a folder. Quarantine it. If pccillin have a reporting log with its path. Then copy in a piece of paper the name and path. Then delete that in DOS mode if you are familiar with that only be sure that it is a legit viral file.

Vista has it's ups and downs, and it really has gotten a bad rap in general - some deserving and some not so much.

The important thing to remember is that you already bought your computer and nothing legit will keep asking you for more money.

You might have mal-ware on your system that I can help you remove.
Also using a different browser will help to stop pop ups and that sort of thing.

Download Spy-bot and run that to remove any mal-ware (malicious software).

I use Firefox as my browser and I get ZERO pop ups!

Let me know what I can do to help.

You might have Mal-Ware on your pc.

Find your self a good anti-mal ware program and run it daily or at least weekly.

I like the following 2 programs to clean up my pc: Spy-Bot and CCleaner.

I also suggest using a different browser. FireFox is my browser of choice and is quite better at security than IE is (my opinion)
