Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Dell lattitude d520, can't log onto internet, says wireless adaptor not connected, have anti-virus pro 2010 virus, what should i do? please help
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.
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.
