My computer has an administrator block on and it won't allow to me to connect to the internet how do i delete this problem


Create new User account that is an Administrator as an account type, then try to log in using this user account if this would not work still it means a virus program or your firewall is putting the restrictions. you can try to turn the firewall and the virus software temporarily or configure the firewall and the virus protection to allow your ISP to run in your computer

Tip

How protect Computer from Viruses infection


1. Get a good Antivirus Software. (you can try FREE AVG, Microsoft security essential etc)
2.
Keep the Antivirus Software updated with latest Virus signatures.
3.
Use an Internet Firewall.(I use free pc tool firewall plus, zone alarm)
4.
If you are Microsoft Windows user, turn on automatic updating.
5.
Never open an e-mail attachment from someone you don’t know.
6.
Avoid opening an e-mail attachment from someone you know, unless you know exactly what the attachment is. The sender may be unaware that it contains a virus.

I have a gateway and am not very good with it yet. when i turn it on it shows a threat detected, trojan horse psw generic.bejdc./roger/locals //temp/123.dll. i have avg 7.5 virus protection ihave used both...


Check to see if AVG has the option to scan the computer before windows start. I would also download and install a Spyware Scanner and run it. Usually when you are running a Spyware scan it will also pick up some of the Trojans and help your virus scanner detect and clean more viruses. I personally use SuperAntispyware ( www.superanitspyware.com) and SpyBot ( www.safer-networking.org/ ). Do a full scan and delete everything that if finds. If for some reason you are still having this issue, try restarting your computer into safe mode ( by pressing F8 when computer is booting up) and scanning every in safe mode.

Hope this helps.

Have aproblem getting on the internet. problem with network adapt


Hello,

First - try step one- If that doesn't work, try step two.

Many virus scanners prevent programs from accessing the internet. Please go to download.avg.com This user manual will show you what settings you you can put your new software at to access the internet.

2. If that doesn't work- restore the system to the day before you added the software

Yahoo Browser connects to internet, but Explorer&AVG update wont


Yahoo Connects but IE and AVG wont
1. Try opening AVG and adjusting the connection settings.
2. Go to Start/ Network connections/ Local area connection/ General tab/ Scroll down to TCP/IP/ highlight it and click properties. Make sure "obtain IP address automatically" is checked. Under the advanced setting there, DHCP should be enabled.
3. Verify setting in Internet Explorer under: Tools/Options/ Connections/ Lan Settings/ select "automatically detect settings"

You might also check your AVG program for a firewall conflict or block there.

Let me know if this helps

Everytime I turn on my computer whether I'm online or not the application svchost asks for several approvals from my firewall to connect to the internet.Any suggestions?Thanks,,,rickconstantin@hotmail.com


don't let it access the internet. svchost is a trojan, so do a full system scan with your anti-virus and get rid of it. if you dont have a anti-virus, go to the avg website and download it.
