Try this quick trick, first:

Start your computer and press the [F8] key after the splach screen and before Windows tries to load (Like getting into Safe Mode).
At the menu prompt, select:
"Start computer in last known good configuration"
It should start ok. At that point, you should be able to download/update your av software.

Another really quick av scanner is "Stinger' By McAfee:
http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/ (Click on Download v10.)

After Stinger, down load FREE AVG from Grisoft.
It pre-scans all websites before you click on a url.

Hope this helps!

You need to get a flash drive and go to a friend and download the following from WWW.filehippo.com:

MalwareBytes Malware Remover
Avast 4.8 Anti-Virus

After that go to www.threatfire.com and sownload the free version of threatfire. This program monitors all web pages that enter the computer.

Install these on the infected computer. I suspect you have a malware issue that prvents you from using Internet Explorer or another browser to access cleaning software.

Install MalwareBytes Malware Remover first and run it. When it runs choose quick scan and let the program run. After it scans and finds the infection(s) it will notify you of what it had found. Choose delete all that finds.

Next, un-install any anti-virus currently on the system and install Avast. When the instal completes it will ask you if you would like to schedule a boot scan, choose yes and reboot the computer. This scan will take place on the next boot and will scan all files because it activates before windows actually runs, so all windows files get scanned. Hopefully this will rid you of all the infected files. Install threatfire after Avast completes its scan and windows settles. When all is said and done, go to the Avast registration page and fill out a short registration page, a license key will be sent to via email, this will make your installation full featured for a year in which all you have to do is re-register.

If your PC wont let you download any security software then you should go to a public library and download your software, save it to a disk and go home and install it....run the software and check for updates if you cant update, run the software without updating after the scan attempt another update, I recomend AVAST ANTIVIRUS HOME its free for a year with registration and works great

Features of AVG Anti Virus


<p>AVG Anti Virus is available free-of-charge to home users! AVG Free Edition is for private, non-commercial, single home computer use only. AVG Anti-Virus is loaded with features, including new tools that improve security and usability. Continuing from last year is the gamer mode, which allows you to enjoy full-screen games (or movies, presentations, etc.) without interruptions or popup announcements, and still maintain security. Generally free antivirus software does not give full protection. Still AVG free version is best among free antivirus software.<br /> <p> <br> <p>AVG Anti-Virus even includes a PC system optimizer utility. The PC Analyzer scans your system and locates registry errors, junk files, disk errors and broken shortcuts. You can fix these issues, but note that you can only fix errors once for free.

HP Pavilion a6110n PC won't update windows driver KB2761494


Method 1: Disable the security software temporarily. Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks. Method 2: Place the computer in a Clean Boot state to see if there is any software conflict as clean boot helps to eliminate software conflicts. Note: After performing the troubleshooting steps in clean boot, follow Step 3 from the article to start the computer to Normal startup mode. Method 3: You can also install the updates (KB number) manually by downloading from Microsoft download center. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/default.aspx Method 4: Follow the steps from the article. How do I reset Windows Update components? Hope this helps

My Eee netbook has a virus how do i remove them?


Boot into safe mode (press F8 repeatedly when starting the computer), select safe mode with networking, download, then install an anti-malware software and run it. If you can't download the software on the infected computer, download it onto another computer, then transfer it to the infected computer using a flash drive, but still use safe mode. You'll want to also scan the flash drive before using it on another computer, just to make sure the virus didn't get transfered to the flash drive.

Here are some free anti-malware software:

I have downloaded trail of total security 2010 quickheal 32 bit for windows xp,,but unable to install it on my pc.. an error occur while installing it on pc during pre install virus scan,and install...


Either:

1. your computer is virus-infected.

2. the download trial (not "trail") itself is virus-infected.
If you did not download directly from the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.quickheal.co.in/qh-total-security.asp

you could have downloaded a virus-infected file.

So, download a free(!) virus-scanner from http://www.prevx.com or from http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials

rather than _paying_ for anti-virus software.
