Save media and documents (important and not available in other place) from C drive to the other partition...or into a disk ..and reinstall the operation system from scratch ....This is the only way to be sure that you get rid of all infections ...for good....(format the C partition during the operation )
All other methods are just a delay or ..a partial solve of this problem ...cause there is no anti-virus that will delete a virus that already passed by it ...even if it sees it ..and so try to heal..remove or quarantine it ...this bugs once that got into the computer they appear in more than one place and attack the system files systematically ..and it will glue it down step by step ..until there will be nothing to do ...and if you have important family pictures...documents and such ...its better to start making a saving operation now...when it still moves..cause in a few days will be almost impossible...do not worry ..usually viruses do not attach to media or documents ..just programs and things that will allow to activate themselves into crucial points like system 32 or program files..so ...save all that you can ....on a removable device ..or in another partition on the hdd....scan them to be sure they are ok ...and reinstall windows..

Going to google on line my sites are slow even putting in this question is delayed


I am going to assume that you have a broadband internet connection and that the slowness isn't due to your internet service provider. That said perhaps you should run some virus scans on your computer for possible virus infection.

WAYS COMPUTER VIRUSES ARE SPREAD


There are different ways in which a virus can spread from computer to computer, but let's take a look at the most frequent ways in which people run into viruses, spy ware and Trojans via the Internet.

Adult Websites: adult websites, gambling websites and other less than trustworthy websites will attempt to automatically access your computer when you visit them. They often install adware bugs that will cause a flurry of pop ups to appear on your screen. This adware will often allow for other programs with even more nefarious purposes to be installed and before you know it, your computer will be swamped. To stop these rogue websites, adjust the settings on your antivirus software and firewall so that no outside connections can be made and no programs can be installed without your express permission.

Email attachments:It has been discovered that since the advent of email attachment by Microsoft's Outlook Express.it is been used as medium by which viruses can be transferred from user to user. It is advised that if you don't know what an attachment is, don't open it. simply use common sense when opening attachments in your email.

Boot disk Infected
:a virus can still be spread if an infected disk is in your hard drive and you attempt to restart. When you start your computer, your machine will always check your drives to see if a disk with boot information is present. If one is, your computer will likely automatically attempt to boot from the disk and not from your drive. If a virus is present in the boot disk, it will often be activated and you will become infected. Always know the origin of any disk you put into your drive.
Local Area Networks. If your computer is connected to a home network or if your work computer is part of a larger network, you may find yourself with an infection through no fault of your own. Someone else on the network downloaded a bug by accident, and within minutes, the entire network could be infected. There isn't much you can do to stop these kinds of infections, short of having your network administrator ensure that everyone's antivirus software is up to date so that the invading bug can be removed as quickly as possible.
Softwares. Downloading files or softwares from the internet can create an access to virus infection on you pc. The key here is to only download freeware or shareware from a trusted source like CNet that always ensures your safety.
Phishing : A phishing scheme starts when you receive an email from a website claiming to be your bank or credit card company, people end up with their identity stolen and a computer fill of viruses. Often times, when you visit these sites, spyware, adware and viruses are automatically installed on your computer The smartest thing you can do is to simply call your bank or credit card company if you receive an email saying there is a problem with your account instead of blindly following links in your email.

Chatting Messagers:
These programs are often targets of hackers who see an easy way to trick people into clicking links that lead them to rogue websites. Common sense can keep you out of trouble, however. Only chat with people you know and never follow links to sites that you don't recognize. You should easily be able to keep Internet worms, viruses and other bugs at bay
Hackers. Today, people understand the value of good online protection, but hackers can still pose a problem if you allow your protection software to lapse. The best way to beat hackers is to ensure that you have a firewall and up to date antivirus software.
External Mobile Devices. There really is no way to stop such an infection from happening, since we all buy peripherals that work with our computer, but we can ensure that we have the tools ready to go if an infection should happen. Keep your anti virus software up to date at all times and you should be able to wrestle control back from any Internet bug.


Fake Anti Virus Software.
This is one of the most frustrating ways to become infected with a virus or worm. There are dozens of anti virus and anti spyware programs you can download for free on the Internet and a surprising number of them actually do exactly the opposite of what they claim. The product websites make outrageous claims that their product can protect you from a whole range of threats, when, in reality, their product will only make things a thousand times worse. Only download antivirus programs from trusted sites or from websites that you know are completely legit.

When we know how spread, we can put an end to their reign of terror online. It is only with the right knowledge that Internet users everywhere can beat online bugs for good.

I am connected to wifi on the netbook but when I click on internet explorer nothing happens. when I click on my computer or recycle bin the screen flashes but will not open them.


You are infected with a virus. Download Malwarebytes anti malware from this link. (CLICK HERE) You will have to do this from another computer and save it to a flash drive or disk then transfer it to your computer. Install the program, update it, and run a full scan. If you have problems installing it you may have to enter your computer in safe mode. (press F8 as the computer first begins to boot up and select safe mode) You may need to re-install internet explorer after virus removal. (CLICK HERE) for IE8 download.

Computer freezes less than 5 min and screen goes white before it reboots itself. Laptop has less than 10hr on it.


If laptop has less than 10hr, it may still be covered by an exchange policy at the store where you bought it which is one possible option to resolve your problem. Anyways, here are some possible freezing causes...
1. hard disk drive has defective sectors (not likely but possible which is why there is exchange)
2. virus infection (pc usually come with a firewall and antivirus which you must activate)
3. conflict between two firewalls, two antivirus or two spyware/malware programs (suppose to only run one of each but often an antivirus program includes features like an internet security suite). To resolve, need to turn off or de-install the program(s) causing the overlapping conflicts.

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, Microsoft releases a free tool to address virus infections. The tool is called Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. It is usually downloaded in an infected computer's hard drive but if this cannot be done, the tool can be loaded into a USB stick or thumbdrive on another computer then inserted into the infected computer's USB port to be run. Microsoft also has online tools to scan and remove malware. For more information and download go to .... http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/malware-removal.aspx

My Lenovo ideapad keeps freezing ever since I bought it a month ago.


If laptop was bought a month ago, it may still be covered by store exchange policy. If so, just take it back to store for exchange. If you bought it with a credit card, it may also be covered by the credit card company for its exchange or repair. Also, if you bought an extended warranty when you did the purchase, it will cover not only repair but also replacement should repair not be possible. Finally, there is the manufacturer's warranty which typically is for one year from the date of purchase but you likely will have to ship at your expense to manufacturer's designated repair site.

If you choose to continue troubleshooting yourself, here are possible freezing causes...
1. hard disk drive has defective sectors (not likely but possible which is why there is exchange)
2. virus infection (pc usually come with a firewall and antivirus which you must activate)
3. conflict between two firewalls, two antivirus or two spyware/malware programs (suppose to only run one of each but often an antivirus program includes features like an internet security suite.)

My computer will not open any program. it says that they are all infected. I cannot open the internet to download a virus remover. It will not open sysytem restore either.


Remove the disk-drive from your computer.
Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer.
Update the anti-virus software on that computer.
Do a "deep" scan of all the files on that "slave" disk-drive, to eliminate the virus.
Return the "cleaned" disk-drive to your computer.

Note that "best practises" state that you never can be 100% sure that you have "cleaned" your computer, and the only 100% solution is to buy a new (faster, bigger) disk-drive, and to install Windows onto it. Then, copy all your data files from the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive.

Kinds of computer virus


from your question, what are the kinds of computer viruses, here is the detailed explanation:

Computermag-glass_10x10.gif viruses are generally defined as a program inputted into a computer that allows replication of the program installed. As it replicates, the program intentionally infects the computer, typically without even the user knowing about the damage being done. A virus, unlike worms or Trojan horses, needs an aid to transfer them to computers. Viruses usually take a large amount of computer memory, resulting into system crashes. Viruses are categorized to several parts based on its features.
Macro Viruses A macro virus, often scripted into common application programs such as Word or Excel, is spread by infecting documents. Macro viruses are known to be platform-independent since the virus itself are written in language of the application and not the messagebox_info.png operating system. When the application is running, this allows the macro virus to spread amongst the operating systemsmag-glass_10x10.gif. There are thousands of macro viruses that exists, and each are considered major threats. Examples of these viruses are: Melissa.A and Bablas. pc.
Network Viruses Network viruses rapidly spreads through a Local Network Area ( messagebox_info.png LAN), and sometimes throughout the internet. Generally, network viruses multiply through shared resources, i.e., shared drives and folders. When the virus infects a computer, it searches through the network to attack its new potential prey. When the virus finishes infecting that computer, it moves on to the next and the cycle repeats itself. The most dangerous network viruses are Nimda and SQLSlammer.
Logic Bombs The messagebox_info.png logic bomb virus is a piece of code that are inputted into a software system. When a certain and specific condition is met, such as clicking on an internet browser or opening a particular file, the logic bomb virus is set off. Many programmers set the malicious virus off during days such as April Fools Day or Friday the 13th. When the virus is activated, then various activities will take place. For example, files are permanently deleted.
Companion Viruses Companion viruses takes advantage of MS- messagebox_info.png DOS. This virus creates a new file with typically the messagebox_info.png .COM extensions, but sometimes the .EXD extension as well. When a user manually types in a program they desire without adding .EXE or any other specific extention, DOS will make the assumption that the user want the file with the extension that comes first in alphabetical order, and thus running the virus. The companion virus is rare among Windows XP computers as this particular operating system does not use the MS-DOS.
Boot Sector Viruses messagebox_info.png Boot sector viruses generally hide in the boot sector, either in the bootable disk or the messagebox_info.png hard drive. Unlike most viruses, this virus does not harm the files in the hard disk, but harm the hard disk itself. Boot sector viruses are uncommon at this day and age because these viruses are spread rapidly by floppy disks and not on CD-ROMs.
Multipartite Viruses Multipartite viruses are spreaded through infected media and usually hides in the memory. Gradually, the virus moves to the boot sector of the hard drive and infects executable files on the hard drive and later across the computer system
