Spyware is incapable of infecting landlines. You can only have spyware infections on more computer and computer like devices.

PC's, Apple/MAC, some SmartPhones, some advanced video game consoles.

If the servers running the land lines are infected w/ spyware it is AT&T job to keep the servers fully functional but if that is not the case change providers. There is no way to work legal on AT&T's servers w/ out being a direct member of there support staff.

Why does my phone say service disabled? I used it 30 minutes ago


someone may have reported your phone is stolen or lost and the provider has disabled the phone's SIM card if you feel as if it was disabled for this reason contact your phone's provider with a landline phone or a friend's phone many troll type people or hackers tend to do this (if not only stealing your information and stealing your calls and texts)

How do i get spyware off my computer? I keep being keylogged and am unsure how i have avg and norton scan daily could you please suggest a better anti spyware/malware


Although anti-spyware and anti-virus software are intended to protect your computer from advertisement pop-ups, slow performance and security threats, they can prevent some of your computer programs from running properly. This is especially true for anti-spyware software. This is why you may chose to disable them. If you disable either your anti-spyware and anti-virus software, take into consideration that you are making your computer more vulnerable to security threats like viruses, worms and trojan horses.
Disabling Anti-Spyware
  • 1Open the anti-spyware program on your computer. Sometimes there is an icon for the software located either on the desktop or in the toolbar on the lower right-hand corner of the computer, next to the clock. Double-click to open the software if it's on your desktop. Right-click on the icon if it's in the toolbar.
  • 2 Turn off the anti-spyware software by removing the check mark from the "on" button. If you have Ad-Watch Anti-Spyware, you will need to uncheck the word "active" and "automatic" to disable the software. If you are running SpyBot Tea Timer, click on "advanced mode" and then uncheck the teatimer.
  • 3 Click "yes" for the anti-spyware software to be disabled.

What is virus and their description


A computer virus is a computer program that infects files, make changes in OS , file system , & edits registry to spread itself for furthur infection. They do it by putting their own code into the exe file & executes as a normal program & creates problems like deleting/hiding data,download programs from particular websites automatically,denial of service,formatting disk & much more.
Commonly we use the term virus for all types of malware,spyware.
A true virus can only spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code)when its host is taken to the target computer; for instance because auser sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on aremovable medium such as a floppy,cd & USB drives(most chances).

Disable System Restore temporarily
For Windows XP:

1: Right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select properties.
2: Click on the system restore tab.
3: Check the box that says "Turn off system restore on all drives". Click OK.
4: Click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.

Empty your Internet Explorer cache and your other temporary file folders.

click on start

then run

and type in the word

prefetch

and then press ok

delete whatever you have here

Go to Add or Remove Programs in Control Pannel and Remove any suspicious Programs we recognize.



Clearing the Startup.
The first thing that you should do is to stop unwanted programs from running in the background. There is a Tool in Windows that allows us to do that and it is called the "System Configuration Utility" (MSCONFIG).

Now most of the time with Infected Computers, the Normal Mode is Really Difficult to work with and so the best place to start would be to restart the Computer in the Safe Mode.

To Start your Computer in Safe Mode, do the Following:

Turn your Computer Off.
Now As Soon as you Turn the Computer On, Keep tapping the F8 Key (Present in Top Row) on your Keyboard
It will give you a screen that says "Windows Advanced Options"
Here You will Have Options to Select Either "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking".
Once in the Safe Mode,

Click Start and Click Run.
Type "MSCONFIG" (Without the Quotes) and Click OK.
Now Click on the Tab called "Startup". (Here you see all the Programs that Starts when your system Starts)
Now Click On "Disable All".
Now Remember, when you click on "Disable All", you are also Disabling your Antivirus, So be sure to put a check mark next to everything related to your Antivirus.
Then Click on Apply.
Once you Click on Disable All and all the Check Marks are gone (except for your Antivirus), Then click on either OK or Close.
It will Ask you to Restart your Computer, So please go ahead and do so.

d) If you Scroll down the Same window, it will give you the List of HJT Log and will tell you if it is Safe or Nasty.
e) Put Check Marks on the Nasty Entries and then Click on Fix Checked, It will ask you a Question, just click on Yes
Spyware Prevention.

Preventing Spywares from Entering your System is not that Difficult. You should Never Trust a Pop Up that Says your System is Infected or Anything Like that if it is a Message from your Internet Browser. Following are some of the Thumb Rules that can prevent Spywares from Entering your System:

Stop Visiting Websites that offer Cracked Softwares or Other Illegal Activity.
Do Not Visit Porn Related Websites.
Do not Visit Websites that Generate Unwanted Pop Ups.
DO NOT Click on Any Pop Ups that are Generated by your Internet Browser. (ALWAYS Use the RED X on the Top Right To Close the Pop Up)
Avoid using File Sharing Softwares. If you are using them, use it very carefully and Read the "License Agreement" Before Installing those Softwares, as they may mention about other Softwares that are being installed.
Install a Good Antivirus and Keep it Updated Regularly.
If your Antivirus does not come with a Firewall then install a Firewall like Zone Alarm (Can be Downloaded from http://www.tdwebsite.com or http://www.zonelabs.com).
Keep your Windows OS Regularly Updated and if Possible, be sure that Service Pack 2 is installed as it also has a good Pop Up Blocker.
Install a Good Anti Spyware like Ad Aware or Spy Sweeper or Windows Defender and Keep it Updated.
Run a Virus Scan using Antivirus at least Once a Week.
Run a Spyware Scan using Anti Spywares at least Once in every 3 or 4 days (If Possible Every Night Before Turning Computer Off).

Spyware problem


Hi snthaa; First copy the URL of the site that you are being sent to and post it here. To get your home page back. Go to your IE tools drop down menu and select tools. Then Internet options. At the tip of the box there is a space where you can type in the URL of your desired home page. (example: http://google.com). This should return you to your desired home page when you log onto your computer. If the spyware that I think you have is what I think it is then you have a pretty nasty bug. But there is a solution. Awaiting your reply; HELP2DIY
