Question about Computers & Internet
We have four computers on a wireless network. Base computer (one with wireless router attached) is xp. Three computers on wireless network, two are vista. Each computer has multiple shared folders set up on the desktop allowing them to share with specific computers on the wifi.
The shared folders works on all computers except one laptop (xp), mine. How do we reset up just the two shared folders on my laptop? I have located the folders in explorer and right clicked, hoping to get into the security settings, however security does not show up when right clicked. I think the link for the folder itself is gone. How do I set up just the two folders which do exist on the other computer we share with?
Each computer has thier own folder, they are not all the same folder shared. Example, I can (or could) share with two of the three computers via two different folders on the desktop. One folder shared with xp one folder shared with vista computer.
At the same time, our trend Micro expired and we were without for 3 days, now we have a new folder on the desktop..titled counters. I am suspicious that we had/have a virus/worm. TM keeps finding and eliminating a troj_Gen.4x2739, could this have damaged the file?
Assuming that you have created a shard folder before, "Sharing Files and Folders" should be enabled on your machine.
Go to your Control Panel -> Folder Options adn click the "View" tab. Scroll all the way down and disable "Use simple file sharing (Recommended)".
Now the "Sharing and Security" option should appear again if you right-click a folder.
Microsoft has a write-up on this for general information. See here.
In regards to the possible Trojan - I would need the exact file name to find more information. What you can do from your end is to run an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner.
Note: You should use Internet Explorer to run this scan, and you must disable your Anti Virus program during the scan.
Click the Accept button.
You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
* The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
* Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
* Now click on Scan Settings
* In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
o Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
o Scan Options:
Scan Mail Bases
* Click OK
* Now under select a target to scan:
Select My Computer
* This will program will start and scan your system.
* The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
* Once the scan is complete it will display the results if your system has been infected.
o Now click on the View scan report link:
* Click the Save report as button
* Under Save as type, choose Text file (*.txt)
* Save the file to your desktop as Kaspersky.txt
* Copy and paste that information in your next post if you like.

SOURCE: TROJ_GEN.4X2739 removal
i think the TM remove already the Troj_Gen but the registry command file is still there so anytime he can detect the trojan appear on your system, use trojan remover... good luck!
