Question about Computers & Internet

Hey guys and gals I recently got ahold of that darn Protection virus i could not have MalwareBytes run after i installed it even in safe mode. Then I manually found a way to delete everything that said ''protection system'' and yet it will not let me goto Microsoft or any other security website is there something i missed? Please for the love of god help lol. Oh and I did try to maually update the definitions via data stick and it seemed to find somethings I don't have the annoying pop up stuff saying you are infected and the windows security alert.

    Have you ever run HijackThis? It is a utility that will create a log of your registry and then you can post it either here or other sites where "good guys" will review it and make recommendations. You can download it at: Wayne

Have a virus need to get it out need a free nopay tape of antivirus can u help none is working???

If you can download this scanner from mbam called Malwarebytes: Once you run this on the target computer you can do a full scan and get rid of the virus, it catches most nasties.
If the virus stop any antivirus from running, you may have to boot into safe mode and run it from a USB device or burn it and run it from a disk. To boot into safe mode :
Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected. And boot into safe mode.
Hope this helps,

I have a virus and need to fix. 1. How do I

reboot the computer and tap the F8 every second or two to get to safe mode (click here for details).
Not sure what virus you have, but I just had to remove "Security Tools" from a pc. I booted into Safe mode and ran MalwareBytes.
If you don't have virus protection download and install Windows Defender and Avast - both are free.

Can you please help me get connected to the internet on my laptop. I am connected on all other 4 computers that share the same wireless. I picked up a nasty spyware that erased Norton and will not allow me...

Try rebooting in "safe mode".That virus probably didn't delete your virus protection,just hid it.
Follow this link on how to get into Safe Mode.Then run your virus protection in deep scan to get rid of the nasty.

Sony Vaio VGN-FZ320E is inundated with viruses, only operates in safe mode, will not accept new virus protection, and I have no Vista recovery disc. How can I download one, or will I have to wipe it...

Just sharing this,

Try to inquire on sony support. If you can have the recovery cd, usually they will charge for shipping. Have it and your hand its better you have a good fall back to restore your lap on factory settings.

But for your virus infection. You have at least a chance to purge that out of your system since you can boot on safe mode.

You can try to use combo disinfection. Like ;

1. AVG
2. Ad-aware
3. Superantispyware
4. Malwarebytes antimalware
5. Easy cleaner
6. Avast
7. Combofix
8. Mcaffee Stinger

Use combofix on safe mode but this could also do some corruption on your system this is for the last resort if ever.

Try to look for antivirus that can run on safe mode on the list, and do some research how it works best.And also try to backup your important files and installation files first before running the antiviruses. And also run antivirus one at a time. Then try to record what virus hits you.

This maybe an overkill. The reason is you don't know what virus infects you then try this antivirus who can distinguish it and run on safemode. The reason I sharing this is it will just infect you easily again even you restore it to factory installation. " Prevention is better than cure".

If ever you disinfect the virus using this, then pick one antivirus that disinfect this infection and uninstall the other. I also recommend Malwarebytes antimalware on the system together with one antivirus.

Computer virus protection and diagnosis

It sounds like you have some form of a hijacker virus. You probably won't be able to do this from the infected computer but, if you have a spare - or a buddy who do it for you, go to and download a copy of their Malwarebytes anti-malware program and try to install it using a flash drive.

If at all possible, physically disconnect your computer cable from your internet source (Cable, DSL, Dial-up, etc.) then try to boot into "Safe Mode" and install the Malwarebytes program while in safe mode. You can also run the program in while in safe mode.

Once the anti-malware program is installed and running, just follow the on screen instructions. This is a very user friendly, as well as a very effective cleaning program.
