When i click on any application i get an error open with how can i reoslve this?


Without seeing the exact text of the error message I can't tell you for sure what's wrong, but you might have a malware problem. Many of the fake anti-virus programs that can infect your computer will make it behave this way. Any application you try to run results in a message that it can't start because it's infected. And you may be getting "virus scan" windows popping up telling you all the bad viruses it's finding, and telling you need to activate your virus protection. It's all a scam and the only bad software is that program itself.

Download and install the free version of MalwareByte's Anti-Malware. Restart your computer in "safe mode with networing". This will keep the infected program from running so that MBAM can run. Let it update and do a quick scan, have it correct any problems it finds, and this should clear up the trouble.

Which is the latest anti virus software?


Any decent anti-virus program will be continually updated to keep up with virus developments. Which one you go for is mostly a matter of preference. If you're looking for free software, I highly recommend AVG free, which is, in my experience, one of the best freeware anti-virus suites.

If you're looking to buy some software, then Bit Defender and Kaspersky are two of the highest rated antivirus suites of 2011. This site here has some good comparisons and a little buyers' guide to help you choose the best software for your needs.

I hope this helps!

Removing a pop up window on center of viewsonic monitor 2231ww screen


The pop-up window come due to any software program. This is not related to the monitor. So you have to check the software which causes this.

Generally pop-up window comes from internet browser. You may change the setting of your internet browser to "Blobk POP-ups". If you tell me what browser you are using i can send you the instruction.

If the pop-up is coming from any other program then there is no general instruction.

One more thing you may try. Do a virus clean. That will solve pop-ups due to virus.

It is a program called smart engine which appears in my computer telling me that I should instal it in order to get rid of the viruses that my computer is infected with.


most likely it is a virus. do not open it in any way. make sure your anti virus is up to date, and ignore pop ups like that from anyone. they will look official, but are not.

I have a virus. It is preventing me from doing any system scans or recovery. It pops up every few seconds & tells me someone is trying to send my credit card info, and to click to fix it. I am then...


Had a similar problem recently. My solution was to backup all files (not programs) onto a backup drive then scrub (reformat) the laptop. No problems afterwards! I am sure you figured this out already, buy make sure you install an anti-virus package right away thereafter. Webroot has a very good package for the price.

Pop up saying you have a virus, i try to go online, or into properties and it keep saying, wmiadap.exe is infected. It always pop up to buy antivirus software.


It seems as if you have downloaded a spyware program such as a wallpaper which has caused you to have a fake antivirus 2009 running. Make an Ultimate Boot CD and run every AV tool and spyware/malware that was on the CD. After running all the tools install your XP SP2 CD to repair the installation Download and run hijack this to see if still have the virus lurking on the computer.

Little red shield keeps telling me I have a security problem


You have a Rouge Anti-Virus malware, this is a virus do not download it will make it worse, the idea is to take over your computer and force you to buy the antivirus program which is actually just a list of places to download free virus removal software, All is not lost, if you have Virus software do a scan now and try to find it, if not download AVG Free Anti-Virus and that will take care of it.These people are from Russia and once they get your credit card number they will try to empty your bank. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

Hello my problem is that my computer is running slow and it cach a virus but evrytime i want to log in the internet the antispyware keeps popping up and it makes me restart my computer over and over again...


Is the antispyware a program that you installed? Did you buy it or is ita freeware program? Or is it part of your virus control program? If so which program sdo you use?If you purchased it, go to the main icon on your desktop or under all programs and open the main console. Update the program and Try to run a scan. This should clean up the spyware on your computer. If it does, you need to do the same with your virus control unless they are part of the same program. Don't forget to update before you scan.

In the meantime, please get back to me with the name of the spyware program, your virus control program,your operating system and type of computer. If you cannot do the above, please let me know. Thank You.
