Re: Spyware

Many people think that they can download spyware protection software and then forget about it. However, that is not the way it works. In order to keep your computer clean you have to use the program frequently. Most programs do not stop spyware from getting into your computer; they simply remove the program once it is there. Therefore, you have to scan your computer frequently to check for any unwanted programs. If your program will scan to remove spyware automatically you should schedule a scan every day. You can have the program scan your computer when you are asleep and then you never have to worry about the problem again.

Re: Spyware

Hey yeah you got spyware,
but anti virus dont remove spyware,
For virus's you use an anti virus
For Spyware you use anti spyware
For trojans you usea trojan remover

Here are my suggestions for your security system

AVG Anti virus > made by grisoft and is free(just download)
SuperAnti Spyware >>> this is also free i thank god for this one

Now the resaon you cant delete the file is cause its running in your processes, You can downalod the superanti spyware remover and let this do the work for you or...

1.) click start the run and type msconfig the hit enter
2.) click startup and disable the application or applicatios runing the file
3.) reboot
4.) delete the file

please note this may just be a quick fix, just becasue the program isnt running doesnt mean its gone, to totally remove it will require registry fixes and is very difficult for newbies, I'd suggest you downlaod the Super Anti Spyware and use that...

Re: Spyware

I would try running one of the free online scans by someone like Mcafee or PCCillin, you can run these without actually buying the software. They will help you see if you have any issues.
As for the file you cannot delete. It is likely that this file has been locked hence your not able to remove it. There is a free handy program called unlocker that may help if you search for this on google and install it, you can then right click on the file and you will have a new unlocker option, choose this and you can then unlock the file, and even try and delete the file from this program.
Hope this helps. Please note I have no idea what your file it so I cant guarantee that if you remove this file everything will still work, as long as your sure its ok to delete the method above should work.

How do i get spyware off my computer? I keep being keylogged and am unsure how i have avg and norton scan daily could you please suggest a better anti spyware/malware

Although anti-spyware and anti-virus software are intended to protect your computer from advertisement pop-ups, slow performance and security threats, they can prevent some of your computer programs from running properly. This is especially true for anti-spyware software. This is why you may chose to disable them. If you disable either your anti-spyware and anti-virus software, take into consideration that you are making your computer more vulnerable to security threats like viruses, worms and trojan horses.
Disabling Anti-Spyware
  • 1Open the anti-spyware program on your computer. Sometimes there is an icon for the software located either on the desktop or in the toolbar on the lower right-hand corner of the computer, next to the clock. Double-click to open the software if it's on your desktop. Right-click on the icon if it's in the toolbar.
  • 2 Turn off the anti-spyware software by removing the check mark from the "on" button. If you have Ad-Watch Anti-Spyware, you will need to uncheck the word "active" and "automatic" to disable the software. If you are running SpyBot Tea Timer, click on "advanced mode" and then uncheck the teatimer.
  • 3 Click "yes" for the anti-spyware software to be disabled.

How i keep my pc safe, clear & malware free?

You can keep your PC Clean from viruses and malware by downloading and installing a couple of programs

AVG Free
Avast Antivirus
These are both free and great, i personally lean towards the use of AVG

CCleaner is a program which removes all your temp files which is usually where malware is kept

and finally
Spybot S&D
Spybot removes any Malware software that has been installed

all these programs are completely free or have a free version

Hope this helps.

My yahoo has become VERY slow moving. I wait 30-40 seconds each time I do something.

I suggest you perform a malware or spyware scan. Download spyware it.
Run the spyware scan and remove all detected spywares. after that i suggest running a full system virus scan using Kaspersky, bitdefender, or any other anti virus you may have.

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)

Personally I think that Avast might be your best bet and it is free. Avast is like AVG, however from my experience I have seen Avast catch a lot of virues that AVG didnt catch. Also another thing that you need to do is run Spybot or any other spyware cleaner in Safe Mode, this way the viruses or spyware wont re-install themselves while you are running the scans. To download avast, just go to and download/install the home edition. Once you have downloaded and installed it, let it run a boot-time scan ( it will ask you this when you first install Avast ). Also you try other spyware cleaners such as adaware ( and/or Windows Defender ( BTW, if you decide to run AVG and Spybot in safe mode and dont know how to get into safe mode, do the following:

1. At boot-up, continually press F8 until a list comes up
2. Choose Safe Mode from the list

Let me know if this helps you out.

I need your favor

Free virus software:
Download the home edition

Free Rootkit Revealer:

Free spyware removal: Spybot Search and Destroy

Free online scan:

These are mostly US sites. All good programs. Not additional spyware/malware

Remember... if you are already infected.... certain malware will not allow you to install or run some anti-virus software.

Good Luck

Computer constantly stalls

I you have installed all these programs. Then that itself could cause the problem. ununstall all these programs, go to, Download the free edition for virus and spyware, install these both update them on the net, run a complete scan for virus and sypware.

You should never install multiple security softwares at the same time. If you feel one software is not doing well. Uninstall it, restart your system, then install another software and do the scanning.
