Correct me if I am wrong but AV 2010 is a virus iteself so the previous advice is actually bogus.

First off turn off any system restore you have as this one can hide in there and start itsel every time you restart the computer.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.

MBAM !


for a free one its pretty darned good !

From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

Start in safe mode by repeatedly pressing F8 during boot up ans electing Safe Mode

Copy MBAM to your DESKTOP on the suspect computer.

Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

When its done let it clean anything it finds.

Its where I always start with an infected machine.

As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

May I suggest you download
"hijackthis"

It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.
That is a nasty bit of software you have and if it has gotten too deep you may even have to re-install everything.

Go to your control panel, network connections, choose network connections again. Look to see if your adapter is listed. If it is, does it show it connected or disconnected. Click on your adapter if listed and right click to bring up your options. Try connect, repair. If your adapter is not listed install your drivers. Try getting on the internet with your other computer and download most recent drivers from the manufacture. Copy it a CD so you always have it. You should not have to disable your firewall, but you should check it and see if it is blocking your adapter. If so choose allow option. Let know if any of this works or if I can help you with this further.

How to get my dell lattitude c400 with wifi to connect with my motorola flipside, i already have pdanet, a usb cable connected,moto phone portal and i can get on internet on laptop


Dell uses it own wireless utility ..

  1. Open the Dell wireless Utility and uncheck the box at the top that says "Let this tool manage your wireless networks". You may then need to open Network Connections, right click the Wireless connection and select Properties, click on the Wireless Networks tab and check the box next "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".
  2. And then try to connect again ..

My Dell Inspiron 560 suddenly stopped connecting to internet through cable-modem.


Onboard adaptor hardware failure? Or is it missing Drivers?
Wireless adaptor - did you install drivers for adaptor? Did you check that WiFi on the adaptor is switched on?


On a side note: I've found that USB 2.0 Wireless N adaptors are the best for connectivity, as they have their drivers on the adaptor, are fully plug and play (Vista/7/8 and even some models on XP). I recommend Transcend (brand name).

Lattitude d520 I buy a new ac adapter, and the battery dont charge. I put the battery in other lattitud and it charge. I think my Lattitud d520 is not charging. What may be the problem?


If the battery and AC adapter work fine on a different D520 then you have an issue with the charging circuit on the motherboard. Could also be the DC adapter jack soldered to the motherboard.

I have a dell lattitude d520 that won't power up, I have tried different charges, and I try removing the battery.


The most-likely cause is a "dead" motherboard.
Or, it could be that the circuits that recharge the battery have failed,
so that the battery has no charge left.

Take the computer to a professional technician.

Unable to connect to Wifi. Computer says WLAN card is disabled. Use internet switch or hot key. Can't find switch and don't know what a Hot Key is.


The dell D520 doesn't have any switch to power off the wireless. You will have to use the hot-key method. Just press Fn+F2. If you have curiosity:
In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a finite set of one or more keys that invoke a software or operating system operation when triggered by the user.

Hi, I just started using my dell lattitude e6400 and need to know how i enable the wireless


The little stair step symbol is the Dell Wireless Utility.
If it has an X on it (as in the image above), your wireless is disabled.

Flip the switch on the right side of the laptop to enable it.

When the X disappears, double click on the stairs and it will open the utility.
