Re: about antivirus

Are you running windows? If you are you may be able to do a system restore. In other words bring your operating system back wards in time to a point when it may be possible to fully run your virus scanner. To do so click on start -> run -> msconfig -> "Launch system restore"

Hope this helps

Re: about antivirus

Go to add/remove programs, uninstall, restart your computer. Now install your antivirus. See if that works if not contact your antivirus vendor, or techsupport for your antivirus.

Want to scan my computre i have a virus

Disable your antivirus system (if any) and download the comofix file from this link. Extract the zip file, run the combofix.exe file and follow the on screen wizard.
Note that this file is not an antivirus softare, it's just a clean up tool. After the computer has been fixed you have to install an antivirus software, I suggest Avast in case you need a free solution.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

How i can update the quick heal anti virus

Hi !!

There can be multiple reasons for that. There is a well known virus which won't allow computers to update antivirus and also in my opinion this antiviirus is not good you can find much better than this. As a computer expert i'll recommend you nod32 and after that Avg. You can install anyone of them it'll give you much better results. Free versions of both are available on websites you can try free version before making purchase decision.

In order to remove virus try this.

Goto command prompt
type cd.. until you reach c drive
then type dnscache
it'll clear you dns cache and you'll be able to visit antivirus site. Update and run full scan.

Actually this virus blocks dns of security sites and redirect to your ip

Hope that helps

Virus not deleted after scanning


If your anti virus software was unable to delete then probably you have to reinstall the operating system.


You can try with another antivirus like avast and kaspersky.

I hope they would be able to delete.

Or you can just reformat your computer.

Good Luck.

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.

If you have already downloaded the programme you need, you must turn off system restore, then start your pc in safe mode, install the anti virus update the anti virus then run the check. Using safe mode will stop the trojan or virus from running and making it easier to find by the anti virus programme.
