  1. AntiVirus - AVG Free Edition
  2. AntiSpware - Spyware Blaster
  3. AntiAdware - Ad-Aware
I recommend using all three of these programs, by doing so you have all your bases covered. AVG Free edition is an awesome program, it updates daily so you can catch even the newest viruses. Best of all it's free! Spyware Blaster is another great program, I've found that this will pick up a lot of things other programs may miss, again it's a free program. Ad-Aware is another great program, this program will also clear out any tracking cookies you may have acquired over time. I use all three of these personally and install them on every computer I build or service.
  • Where do I get these great free programs.
If you haven't visited CNET's http://www.download.com already you are missing out on tons of great free programs, they have everything from games demo's to music editing software, screen savers, and of course antivirus, antispyware, and antiadware programs. This site is updated frequently and includes many reviews on their content. u could simply go to this page and use the search box to find the above mentioned programs, but I'll make it easy for you, follow the below links.

For AVG anti virus-http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=pop.software
For Spyware Blaster-http://www.download.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=lst-2
For AdAware-http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?tag=pop.software

Hi yolandaskidm...
Sounds like you have a virus or maybe a trojan/worm/etc. on your computer.
Go to the following website, download, install and run Microsoft Safety Scanner.
After you have it installed the run the program, it may take quite a while to complete depending on how many files you have on your computer.
Once you have it installed you will run Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus/trojan/worm,etc from your machine for FREE.
If it does not get rid of the virus/trojan/worm/etc then a window will open and allow you to contact a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over your machine (with your permission) and remove it for you for FREE.
Please take time to rate me

How do i get rid of viruses on my computer it keeps sssaying something about trojan an a url pops up with pure numbersw saying that it is attacking my computer


Assuming you can access the internet, navigate to www.cnet.com and search for MalwareBytes Anti-malware. Download and follow the default installation steps and run a quick scan (or full if you have time) and see how that does for you. It's a very effective anti-malware program. That should find and clear up your pop-ups and trojan.

You need to run these 3 essential programs to remove all the spyware on your computer.

If you do not have an internet security suit and only an anti virus
1. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
2. Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt!
3. Run the anti spyware removal programs spybot or Superantispyware
Use Mozilla firefox or the google chrome browser for browsing unsafe websites

Install ThreatFire.ThreatFire, features innovative real-time behavioral protection technology that provides powerful standalone protection or the perfect complement to traditional signature-based antivirus programs offers unsurpassed protection against both known and unknown zero-day viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, spyware, adware and other malware.
Run an online virus scan like Trend Micro HouseCall,F-Secure Online Virus Scanner etc etc
update your software by running
Secunia Online Software Inspector
Install a good antivirus in your computer.
Keep your antivirus updated. If automatic updates are available, configure your antivirus to use them.
Keep your permanent antivirus protection enabled at all times.

How do you get rid of a virus that has got thru my norton, firewall and windows defender. i think its a trojan?


You can try different antivirus like AVG, NOD32, or kaspersky, but if you really want to erase it then back up all of your data and then reformat your HD using the Windows Vista Installation disk.Or better delete the partition and then recreate it,this will 110% get rid of that virus. You may want to use a anti spyware utility like ad-aware this can also get rid most spyware/trojan out their.

Trojans can be tough to get rid of, the best solution is to reinstall Windows xp, then try installing norton again. Reinstalling windows will rid your computer of whatever program or cookie that contains the trojan. Then norton should take over and keep these forms of malware at bay.

Virus on my computer help!


Hi,

Don't worry, trojan.adclicker is not a serious threat, only some spyware which is not anywhere near as malicious as a virus. There are two things you can do to get rid of it though..

1) Follow these instructions (They are long winded but will work)
http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2002-091214-5754-99&tabid=3

2) Download Spybot S&D. This is a really good bit of software that should get rid of it much more easily for you, and will probably get rid of other similar stuff on your pc. Follow the link below and then install the program, then scan the system, then fix problems.

I would recommend trying option 2 first, it will be less hassle.

Hope this was helpful

Sounds like you have spyware, adware, and maybe even a virus. Try using lavasofts ad-aware personal edition, or spybot search and destroy, or avg anti virus. To get rid of the infection. If that doesn't work maybe try Norton or you might have to re-install windows. Sorry try those and see what you can find. Hope this helps. M~
