My 900hd netbook won't boot

as soon as you turn your netbook on, keep tapping F8 until another screen pops up, then select start up repair, If no problems found and doesnt work. repeat the process but choose safe mode with networking, then click start and shutdown, try and reboot as normal, If doesnt work. Select safe mode with networking once again by repeatedly tapping F8 as soon as you switch on your netbook.

My computer has a virus and it won't let me run the programs to find the virus. What do I do?

try moving the antivirus executable to a flash drive and rename it iexplore.exe.
another thing you can do is put the AV program shortcut in the startup directory so that it stars at boot before the virus can stop it.

How do restore Windows XP microsoft word or remove virus on the notebook?

Don't know exactly what you mean about Word, but as far as the virus goes...
Try running Malwarebytes free version from Once you download it onto the desktop (it will be MBAM.exe)
rename it from MBAM.exe to winlogon.exe (a
virus may be the prolem and no virus will look
twice at winlogon as it is a system process), then
install update and run full scan. Also before you scan do a system restore to a point when you had MSWord (if possible). After that turn system restore off (refer to help section if necessary). The reason for this is that many bad viruses have a reboot hacktool that resides in the restore volume. You think you've gotten rid of the virus and as soon as you reboot, the hacktool re-installs the virus. The only way to kill it is to turn of restore. Once you pc is clean turn system restore back on and create a new restore point. If you don't have Anti-virus and firewall (If you're using norton that came with computer and windows firewall they are useless), you can download AVAST Free here: and Zone Alarm Firewall here:
They are both free and pretty good too.

Follow instructions for getting rid of
If you have any problems you can mail me at and I can walk you through the process.
Hope this helps
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a good rating and a quick
thanks or good job.It will help me as well.
Thank you.

I have an ASUS Eee PC 1000. It is totally infected with a virus that will not let go anywhere such as Task Manager to look for screensaver.exe as someone suggested. Or it won't let me go a web site through...

If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

I have virus av.exe and cannot remove it

This trojan runs as a rootkit, so you won't see it when it's running. It is a single file in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local (Vista), or C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\AppData (XP), It is marked as a system file, so you'll need to use the Folder Options in the control panel, to unhide hidden and system files and folders. As I said, with the rootkit loaded, you still won't see it there until you unload it. It runs by changing the registry so that any .exe run, will instead load the trojan. Attempts to run Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox will also instead run it. If you delete the file, or your antivirus finds it and deletes it, the changes to the registry will mean that from then on, whenever you try to run a program, you'll get a windows message asking you to select the file you want to use to open the .exe. (if this is the case, you'll need to use regedit in safe mode with command prompt, or rename regedit.exe to

To defeat the trojan, you must undo the registry changes, then reboot to reveal the file, then delete it. Here's how.

Run regedit. The trojan will load and give you all the fake warnings hassle. Do Ctrl-Alt_Del, and find the process 'av.exe'. End the process. Now in the registry editor, search for 'av.exe'. You should find a section HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe, where the (Default) REG_SZ has been set to 'secfile'. Edit this back to 'exefile'. Keep searching and you'll find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile. Delete the whole secfile section. Keep searching - you'll find the odd line where it may be a recently 'searched for' item, where you can just delete the line, and you'll find it in a command line to run Internet Explorer. The full path to the trojan will be specified before the path to Internet Explorer. Edit this line to remove the path to the trojan, leaving just the path to Internet Explorer. A similar edit may be required for Mozilla Firefox. Find any other occurences of av.exe and deal with them in the same way.

Now, reboot the PC, and the trojan will not start up. Display system and hidden files, then go to the location of the trojan. Now you can see the little swine. Delete it, and empty the recycle bin.

Problem solved.

It stopeed working


Hopefully, you didn't download a virus. With that, have you tried resetting your BIOS? (When you boot your pc, press F2 to enter BIOS, reset your BIOS to default and save.) If this does not work, you will need to use the Asus DVD via external optical drive to restore your system.

Good Luck

iexplore.exe should not be disabled, required for essential applications to work properly.
