What should i do to my digicam affected with trojan virus?

1. Transfer files to your computer that you don't want deleted.
2. On your camera, select "Menu." Go to "Set Up," and choose "Format."
3. Choose "Memory Card" and authorize the Reformat. This will clear everything off of your memory card.
4. Connect your camera to your computer with a USB cord, taking note of what drive it creates. It should be the E: drive, but each computer is different.
5. Download a free anti-virus program such as Avast! or AVG, or open you computer's default anti-virus software.
6. Choose a drive scan. Select the drive that your camera is in, and then initiate the scan. The anti-virus software will identify if there are any viruses left on the camera.
7. If there are no viruses found, you were able to delete them while reformatting the memory card, and you are done. If the anti-virus software finds a virus, move it to quarantine and delete it.
8.Run the anti-virus software a final time to double check that the camera is free of viruses.

Computer running slow

In my opinion, A good anti-virus is AVAST. A good spyware program is Spybot. Malware I recommend Malwarebytes.
1. Scan your computer with Spybot then restart,
2. Now scan your computer with Malwarebytes
and delete whatever comes up. restart
3. Now try scanning your computer with the anti-virus protection.
Hopefully this would of remove some of the viruses and spyware.
Read below for more information.

And for a good Price too........Free.

Helpful Free Software below Read On. If you find any of this helpful, pls rate me. !

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of
virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Avira AntiVir – Free Anti-Virus Protection

FROM MICROSOFT 2009 -Free --Security Essentials

Pop up Blocker- free

Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 -FREE SPYWARE…



Ccleaner- FREE…

Malware- FREE

$ ***

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there-ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 ,
I feel that is the best for your money.


Last Resort, would be a Reformat. Use your recovery Cd's.

Viruses normally corrupt your computer. You probably will need to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything. Restore will not remove Viruses. Best way would be Reformat.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data.
If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.

Good Luck. Thanks :0)

Windows did not start successfully start uo loop

this happens sometimes due to a virus that gets on the machine. you will need to remove the virus and then start up the computer.

To remove the virus you will need to plug the hard drive into another computer then run a virus scan on that drive.

Or you can reformat the hard drive and put windows back on it. this solution you will lose everything

Virus? Taskmanager is broken

Doesn't seem like a need to reformat just yet.And, you may not have a virus.

Have you updatd to XP SP3? You can find out by clicking the Windows key +Pause simotaneously in the subsequent popup it should be noted under "System:"

There is a way to repair your installation without reformatting.

Let me know about my above quesions and I'll be happy to get you to a Anti Virus program that scans during Boot Up and also get you started to Repair the OS.
