Was sent a mesage had a virus in now computer wont work keeps saying no conection


Where you using any virus protection software? If not, you probably caught rogue virus software. This stuff first infects the PC and then demands payment to release and protect it. It's a scam virus. If you were using a virus protection program contact the software vendor for further help.

Another Tip for Removing Flash Drive Viruses


Hi PC users, here is a simple tip on how to remove viruses from flash drives, you only need to find a PC with Windows ME installed as the operating system. Plug the flash drive in and set the folder options to view all files. Manually Delete all viruses files, usually .INFs and folder looking .EXE files. (just delete questionable files there which you don't need and have not created). I know its rather hard to find ME machines these days, but if you do find one. Take the advantage and remove those viruses on your flash drives. Just make sure the ME machine is virus free.

Emachine running SLOW and Freezes - 1 year old


Here are some suggestions: First of all . Do you have an anti virus installed on your husband's machine ? Viruses can slow the machine and even kill it permanently ( so be careful) . Just install an anti virus and you'll solve the problem . If you are already have an anti virus , then just run a full system scan and watch what will happen and follow the recommended steps that will be given by the anti virus [ There are a lot of anti virus softwares in the market ] but if you suspect that your system is already infected i recommend you to use (Avast professional edition) because it can make a boot scan , that means after you install it , it will ask you if you want to make a boot scan , just agree with it and it will reboot the system and start a boot time scanning , meanwhile you should watch it and give it the right orders if it detected a virus infection . Here is another suggestion : There is a certain software you could install it . This software can help your machine and detect any problem on your husband's computer but viruses . this software is called (TuneUp utilities) . You can download it from here www.tune-up.com . just try it and you'll be satisfied with result . if that didn't help just contact me again and i'll help you as possible as i can .
good luck .

Cant stay online. and cant pull up certain sites ie.myspace. may have virus


Some newer viruses block web sites, including sites of most popular virus removal software. If you have a virus removal tool on your machine, unplug from the web and try to run a full scan as the first step.

E machine search page keeps poping up when Im looking at other sites


It is possible you have a virus. Check your anti-virus software is up to date and you should do a complete scan of your computer. If you do not have anti virus software then I would recommend Avast free version, with this you can schedule a boot time scan which will remove a virus hiding in the windows system files. you should also scan for adware and spyware with one of the free programs available to do this.

After use internet my pc,s speed very slow.


Your computer may be infected with a virus. Are you running any anti virus software?

Do a simple scan of your machine using anti virus software - If you have none installed, download and install this.

I have included AVG as its free.

Log off from the internet and run the scans - if you haven't run one before this may take several hours.

The clean up should remove any old entries and also detect any virus which may be slowing down your machine.

Hello, I am experienceing difficulties with my PC. I can't access to any folders and cant open the start menu.


You might have a Virus. In the case of a Virus infection I would most likely disconnect the Hard drive from the machine, scan it on another machine ( using AVG7 + AVGAS = AVG Antivirus and AVG Anti Spyware Scan) remembering to turn off system restore while scanning on the drive.

If you have successfully found and removed the virus infection, remember to delete your system volume information and recycler folder on the drive. virus files tend to infect these folders.

When you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a Windows repair; to fix the issues that the virus has caused OR use a registry repair tool to repair registry items. Another option would be to create a new user name. The settings in that new accound should be working fine and you should be able to access the start menu and your folders again.
