As for the computer Hijackthis is a first line tool to examine certain areas of the computer. It does not show everything and lots of malware is hidden from it

To download Hijackthis

go to http://www.merijn.org/programs.php and download 'Hijack This!' self installer. Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu.
Click on the entry in start menu to run HijackThis
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Thank you Ian C. emmit6378@yahoo.com

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

    I would wait until after. But you can always do it again if you want to try early.

To remove a virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer...do it the EASY way...let someone else do it for you.
Start your computer, as the computer is starting keep tapping the F1, F2 or F8 Key depending on your computer.
This will start the computer in the Safe Mode.

Once you run the Microsoft Safety Scanner (it may take quite a while depending on the size of your hard drive) it will remove all the virus's,trojans,worms,etc it finds, if it does not completely remove them all you will be given a chance to chat with a Microsoft Professional thru a pop open window and he will take control of your computer (with your permission) and finish removing all the rest of the virus's, trojans, or worms that are on your computer for FREE!! Can't beat FREE!!

My computer got wiped out including my phillips mp3 player info, now it wont reload the cd,how do I fix it? my norton says it's got a trogen virus in it.


In order to install your media player, you need to remove norton. The disk does not have a trojan virus in it. This is a common warning for Norton and it says the same thing for TurboTax software if you try and install the desktop version.

Go to your control panel and find programs & installations. Then remove both parts of norton antivirus software and reboot your pc.

Make sure you remove live updates and both parts of the anti virus software or you will be wasting your time.

Then try and install your drivers for the media player. Once installed, reboot your pc again and reinstall Norton if you wish to keep it as your choice for anti virus software.

WARNING! Marshal's iWAVE MP3 Player has a virus installed


this is what you call a false positive, the program does something that the anti-virus dosent like so it tries to act against it. its probably something to do with your operating system or even the guy controlling it, sounds to me like you need to take more care of your computer... i suggest a reformatting of the OS and hard drive is needed, re install the program and see how it dosent happen any more!!!

Cannot access folders- folders not shown


You have to make Disinfection in order to be able to open your folders.

First of all go to http://www.precisesecurity.com/tools-resources/adware-tools/flash-disinfector/

And You'll see Download Here:
Flash Disinfector <<<< Hit it
Save it to your Desktop

Now Turn OFF any Antivirus.

Connect the wire of iRiver X20 MP3 Player to your computer.

Go to "Flash Disinfector" on your desktop, and double click it. Hold on 10 seconds the screen will disappear, then everything will work properly.

Now you can open your folders, but you are highly recommended NOT to only disinfect it but also to remove it, because it's a trojan virus that calls autorun.inf << generic trojan horse that affect your AutoRun of the drives.

Run Your explorer as Administrator and
Go to http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html

do Online scanning. It will automatically detect the trojan and any other virus in case this trojan is worm and affected other files, so everything will be removed automatically.

Also, you are highly recommended to restart your PC when the Online Scanner is done.

This will work 100%
