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

There is somethig seriously wrong with my PC. It was attacked by some computer viruses


Hi,

You can try to run a full virus scan in Safe Mode. To access it, you will either press F8, or Del (depends on what key was designed on your computer to access the Advanced Boot Options), after getting the Advanced Boot Options, select Safe Mode an press Enter key.

If your antivirus software cannot detect any virus, it was either not updated or was disabled by the virus. You need to contact your antivirus company to get help with manual virus deletion.

However, if you don't have any antivirus installed I suggest to just wipe everything off from the harddrive and start from factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Spy virus attacked to my computer how I clean it


Here is a good way.
1. Install Avast Antivirus from here. CLICK HERE 2. Run Avast antivirus and update it to latest version and definition. 3. On the Avast antivirus window click on SCAN COMPUTER on the left. 4. Click on Boot-time Scan right below SCAN COMPUTER. 5. Set Boot-time scan parameter to All harddisk 6. Click on Schedule Now 7. Save all your work or whatever you are doing before restarting 8. Click on Restart computer.
so when you boot your computer Avast Anti-virus will run before windows so it is a good way to delete viruses.
Hope it will solve your problem

I can not make update for norton antivirus , massage number LU1814 apper


Update your antivirus program if an update wasn't performed during the install or you didn't have an Internet connection available to you during the installation.

Update your virus definitions, the "signatures" that identify known viruses. When you buy your antivirus program, you'll receive a subscription for an update service which will allow you to download any new virus definitions. The update subscription is often for a year, so eventually you'll have to purchase a new subscription.

Upgrade your antivirus program. Antivirus companies release new versions of their software every few years. The new version will have features not available in your current system. Purchase these new upgraded programs and you'll have the latest features, enhanced virus protection and a fresh subscription for virus definition updates.

Maintain your antivirus software by scheduling automatic updates. If you rely on manual updates, you can easily forget to perform them and your virus definitions can fall behind

Hi there my name is Alex and im here to help you with this problem

Is the antivirus that was downloaded called win antivirus 2008? This is a virus its self and causes many problems even to the desktop. What you can try doing is restarting your computer and running Safe mode by pressing F8 just before windows boots and selecting safe mode. Whilst in safe mode, the internet is not available and some drivers are disabled which means you should be able to uninstall any programs without problem

If you are experiencing problems downloading AVG updates using the internet, you can download the updates manually from this website http://free.avg.com/download Here you will find a basic guide of how to install this.

I hope this can be some assistance to you. If you experience any problems, please let me know

How can updates my eset smart security antivirus offline... i m not connected to internet .


Visit Safe and Secure Computing at http://jeanvaljean.org Click the tab "ESET Offline Update" and read-on. The application installs the latest virus signature database updates and program components updates (modules) into any location, including removable media (definitions are portable). Once they were extracted, the definitions can be used to update an ESET product locally, or ported to another computer. Username or password are not required on the target computer to update the product. Two installers are available: - ESET NOD32 version 2.7, - ESET NOD32 / Smart Security 3.0x / 4.0x, 32-bit/64-bit (all editions)
