I wouldn't particularly call it a solution but it's thourough...
Download and run:

http://www.malwaresupport.com/mbam/program/mbam-setup.exe

Called malwarebytes antimalware; it's free. I use it three times a day. superantispyware is not bad, but malwarebytes will remove it in a quick scan without needing to go to safe mode. regardless, my suggestion download BOTH run BOTH in a full scan, start with malware bytes full scan after updating them both. then reboot and run full scan of the superantispyware as well, do this for every login. it will also fix the hijacked backround, and the missing tabs in video properties. which I can also help you with but it should do this for you automatically, also NOD32 will keep it out once it's removed:

Can't get rid of the ask toolbar


It probably installed with another program or maybe a anti-virus software.

Now if it won't remove, is missing from add remove programs, then you can stop it from working.

Open Task MGR, Process, look to the right and you might see ask, you can right click on the process, might be a CID, RT click and pick open file location, now you will see the file, where it's located, look from the main drive C: program files, you will see the rest of the address where it's located.

You can now in Task MGR turn it off and delete the .exe from the file and it will no longer work.

I joined another internet cafe in cambodia and hooked up my USB drive Lacie Rikiki 500Gb and the McAfee OAS on the host computer reported it found a virus in it and deleted it. It was probably a boot file...


The computer at the Internet Cafe' probably was virus-infected, and the computer-virus wrote a computer-virus onto your USB memory-stick.

Just click "cancel" to that "which program" prompt.

Then, open "My Computer", and right-mouse-click on the icon for the USB device, and click "Explore", to view the files/folders.

I am unable to delete Rahul'virusprotection.vbe and Autorun.inf in my pen drive .Sometimes deteled again immediatly come to my pendrive


Please follow these steps to Remove Virus using Command Promt:

Click the "Start" menu and type "CMD" into the "Run" box and click "OK."

Select the drive that is infected with the virus. If you are not sure which drive is infected, start with the "C:" drive. Type in "C:" and press "Enter" to access this drive.

Type the following into the command prompt box: - s - h *. * /s /d and press "Enter." This will bring up any suspicious files located on the drive. Open the suspicious file.

Look for a file that contains a ".exe" file and a file titled "autorun.inf." If you find these two files, you have found the tainted file. Make sure to write down the name of the program where the file is located.

Rename the "autorun.inf" so you can access the drive later without activating the virus. Type: rename autorun.inf as virusfile and close out of the "Command" prompt box.

Double-click the "My Computer" icon and select the drive that has the infected file. Find the program that contains the infected file.

Right-click on the program and choose "Open."

Right-click on the file you renamed "virusfile" and choose "Delete."

Right-click on the ".exe" file and choose "Delete." You have now removed the virus from your computer's hard drive.

How does download work?


A download is when you retrieve a file from an external storage location. This could be a local drive you have or from a provider via a website. Typical downloads are those that are music files, drivers for devices, and documents. There are also voluntary and involuntary downloads. Voluntary is when you choose to add a driver or document to your device. Involuntary is when a cookie or other file is added to allow functionality of a program or website. Usually to download any of the above (except involuntary) you will be given a DOWNLOAD button to click on or otherwise choose. If operating a Windows based operating system you will be asked to SAVE or RUN the file. Saving the file places a copy on your computer to be opened, ran, etc. at a later time. Choosing RUN places a copy of the file in a temporary location on your PC and then executes the action such as installation of a program. When the installation is done if you chose RUN then the temporary file is automatically deleted. If you chose SAVE then even when you execute the file action the file stays on your computer. Be careful of what you download and the source of the file. Some downloads contain virus or other malware that will negatively affect your computer. If you utilize virus software the best option is to SAVE the file and then scan it via the antivirus software prior to executing the action. Final comment... Limewire, Youtube, Bittorrent etc are notorious for INFECTED downloads... you should be very cautious if you use these sites. Manufacturer sites like HP, Dell, Apple and sites like CNET are safe bets for files and drivers.

Programs will run and them freeze up(not responding)


This could be such a wide range of issue, multiple solutions are possible.

1. Run a full computer scan with virus protection software...NOT NORTONS! Just trust me on that...
2. Perhaps you are running too many programs at once, or very large programs simultaneously and your computer RAM or CPU cannot keep up.
3. Perhaps your HDD needs defragmenting
4. Could be good to run a Check Disk
5. Run the Cleanup wizard to delete any unnecessary files ie temp internet files, temporary install files etc.

Unfortunately, the list goes on. There really isn't enough information here to give an accurate diagnoses

Opening of drives


I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).

In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: -
Microsoftpowerpoint.exe
smss.exe
.... or many others.

It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.

You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.

To resolve the issue do the following:
1) Open My computer program or windows explorer.
2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it.
3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.

Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.

NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.
