Prevent a virus attack no your computer through USB pen drive or Hard drive


There are lots of viruses available that gets distributed with the help of USB per drives or portable hard drives.

So here is a useful tip which can be kept handy to prevent them from infecting your System.

Do not double click to open a removable drive or the portable hard drive or pen drive. Always right click and select explore from my computer. This is because, the virus would have created Autorun scripts that will get executed when double clicked. The scripts infects your computer with the same virus.

Once the removable drive is opened by selecting explorer, Navigate to Tools > Folder Options > Views. Find the radio button to show hidden files and folders. and also uncheck the option "Hide extensions for known file types"

Now of you find some new unknown files in your removable disk, try deleting them permanently by pressing shift+DEL. If it fails, copy required files from your device and then format the drive.

Hopes this tip helps someone.

When I boot up my lptop, it is taking forever to load. Also when I log on to Internet explorer, it often times takes several minutes to load a page. Can you help me with this? Is there a start-up...


What you have is a big-time clue that your system has been infected by a virus/Trojan horse
Rootkit/Spyware/Worm/Malware of some type.
The first step in tuning up a computer is ridding it of all Malware/Spyware Infection(s). The last
time someone asked me to tune up a computer like yours, my first Malware scan of the
system located 212 viruses.

Free Anti-virus software: www.download.com

Pick (a) Avast! or (b) AVG free anti-virus, and start your tune-up with a deep system scan.

I have a Verbatim external hard drive...it says that I only have 2.4 gigs available but there is nothing on the drive that I can see...how do I wipe it clean and start over? I am using a brand new Macbook...


The problem with using these external hard drives or flashdrives, they're easily infected with viruses. Some forms of virus infections among flash drives and hard drives are the following: hides your files and folders, creates exe file extensions of your files and even corrupt your files. And later on infecting your PC.

1. Sometimes this infection can be solved by:

  • Going to Windows Explorer
  • Tools menu
  • Folder Option
  • View Tab
  • Choose "show Hidden Files and Folders".
  • If the files will show up, simply change the properties of the files/folders. Uncheck the "hidden" checkbox and the files will show again just like before.

2. If the above doesn't work, and your files are still hidden, do this one that will surely work.

  • Go to the command prompt.
  • Go to the drive where your hidden files are located.
  • Type the following: attrib -s -h /s /d *.* (this will unhide all your files that have been hidden by the virus) i.e. I:\> attrib -s -h /s /d *.*

There you go, a quick and easy way on how to unhide hidden files caused by a virus in your computer.

I cant access my SmartMedia/xD. How do I do it , I think its broken.


click start then computer
your card should show up there as a removable disc
right click the card and click explore,, it should open up,,

If the card is infected with a virus, double clicking it will not open it instead it will execute the virus and you wont be able to access the card,,

If the card doesnt show up at all try it in another computer ,, if that fails as well then chances are its damaged..

If the card has a virus scanning it with an anti virus will help..

Trojan horse virus problem


Hello there.

Trojan problems can be a pain, luckily you can try an online web based scanner that should hopefully identify and remove the majority of the infections found.

I would recommend installing and scanning inside Firefox if possible, but Internet Explorer works too.
Click here and click "Scan Now. It's Free!" ten "scan now". Once it loads select My Computer and it will scan the entire computer.

This may take some time but once it completes it will prompt you to remove any infections found. If you are unsure please upload the picture of the final screen, to show us.

ps: you can download Firefox from here

Hope this helps.
