Trojans, worms, viruses, antispy.... no credit card

My comuter is severely contaminated with viruses, trojans, ect., ect.... Most (or all) security software require me to buy a way to delete this stuff online, problem is, I dont have a credit card. I tried manually deleting cookies and files, but obviously, I'm still doing something wrong... Any advice on how to get rid of viruses without making an online purchase??

  • annl52 Jan 17, 2009

    i have a blank page popping up continuously and music coming in at odd times. All these free virus downloads all lead to a purchase with credit card and i don't have one. Why are they listed as free when you only receive a free scan

If all that does not work do this.............use..............Hijackthis it 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.download.com/Trend-Micro-HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10227353.html 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

Help i got trojans virus thats stopping my


If you do not have a virus program you will have to get one. Either that if you know the file that was infected try deleting that file. But virus's spread, so your best bet would be to get a virus removal program right away. When you start your computer in safe mode, make sure you choose the "with networking" capability and try to get avast

It is free to use and just install and scan.
If you cannot access the internet you may want to try going to the store to buy an antivirus program. I recommend Mcafee Security Center.

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.

Give steps to remove virus worm found /autorun


Hello install this program from here:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

And reboot after the install is done.
The program will kill the autorun file, when you boot again.

This is also the best free malware/trojan remover available !!!!

Install also a better free antivirus program like this:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download

Please uninstall the old antivirus program, before you install
Microsoft Security Essentials.
Mse it`s not useing so much of the pc`s memory to operate.

Your windows version must be valid, to use Microsoft Security Essentials .

You might have to scan for virus, in failsafe mode by pressing F8, while the pc boots.

Good luck
