Received a message from security warning that my faceboook account has a virus or malware called koobface. How can I clean this up so I can open my facebook account?


I suggest you to scan computer with hand scanning tool in safe mode of Windows. When computer start, after few second you press F8 key more times in interval of 1 second. You must see option for going to 'Safe mode with networking'. When Windows start, you will have 'bad' icon looking, but don't worry. If you network is on (it will be, if it was in standard Windows mode).
With browser, you can go to ESET (Nod32) antivirus page: http://go.eset.com/us/online-scanner
Download 'ESET Online Scanner', and scan your computer with this. Make sure that you are put option for scan and delete (I think that 'only scan' is default).

Some viruses are so hard to clean, and one of option is use live linux CD (Mint linux, burn on CD from iso image). Share partition with Samba sharing (control panel), and connect computer with network connection to another one (with antivirus). Than scanning files with clean computer.
But this is hard way, and you must know what are you doing (create sharing and network connection). This is only option when virus has hard control with Windows OS. When you boot linux from CD, windows files are not in use, and it can be clean.

I suggest Firefox web browser for more safety way of surfing. AVG antivirus is free option for protection for home users.

Good luck...

How to reset Mozilla Firefox Settings/Preferences to Default.


As we all know, when the Mozilla Firefox is installed,another version called "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" is installed. But mostfirefox users don't know it's importance and would consider it to run in SafeMode. This feature is also used to Change the Firefox settings/preferences.
If you've messed up with the security settings, add-ons,etc..etc.. we have to reset all the settings from the Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode).To do this, follow the steps below:

For windows xp
Click "Start"then "Run" and type in "firefox -safe-mode"[Note: one space after "firefox"] and press enter. A new window willopen up (shown below)

You can select whatever you want to restore, but if you onlyneed to reset the changes you've made to the "Preferences", then simply select (check mark) the "Reset all user preferences to Firefoxdefaults" and click "MakeChanges and Restart". Once you click the "Make Changes and Restart", firefox will restart.

If your operating system isn't Windows XP, then the commandsare as follows:

Windows Vista andWindows 7
Click "Start"then "Start Search" and type in "firefox.exe -safe-mode" (one spaceafter firefox.exe).

Mac OS
Open, "Application"and "Utilities" then "Terminal" andtype in "/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-safe-mode" and press enter"

Linux
Open "Terminal"then type in "/path/to/firefox/firefox-safe-mode"


Thank you for your time, Your comments will be highly appreciated.

Good luck.

Hey my firefox program want responed


Hello

Mozilla's Firefox is a popular Web browser. If Firefox 2 fails to respond after previously working, the user may have installed an add-on, theme or other modification that is in conflict with the program.

You can attempt to start Firefox in Safe Mode to see if this solves the problem. Windows users should open the Start Menu, open the Firefox folder in the programs list and choose "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)." A prompt will appear, asking the user if she wants to make changes -- such as disabling add-ons and using the default toolbars -- permanent. The user can skip ahead to Safe Mode.

If Firefox responds in Safe Mode, the user can close the program and restart Safe Mode. This time, he can select the boxes to reset all defaults within the browser in order to run it normally. If it does not respond, the user can uninstall the program (from the "Add or Remove Programs" option in the Windows Control Panel) and download a new installation from the Mozilla website.

Warning
Uninstalling Firefox will delete a user's settings, including plug-ins, history, bookmarks and other settings. Users who wish to save this data should employ the Firefox Profile Manager to save a copy of the profile before uninstalling the program.

Use wired mouse and keyboard (not wireless) and change the USB port you are using to another one.

Connect them directly to the computer, do not use USB hubs.

If no joy reboot in safe mode: turn on your computer and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the Advanced Boot screen. Select "SAFE MODE" and press ENTER. After that, restart in normal mode.

Thank you

No connection in IE or Firefox


first of all shut the system down ...
than start it again and when you see the memory chk start hitting the F8 key keep tapping it dont hold it down and when you see the boot optiong select the one that says safe mode with networking
you have to use the arrow keys coz mouse wont work and when selected hit enter
and than when you get the login screen and if you have the option with administrator ... hit admin
and than see if you are able to go through IE
if yes that that means the firewall is stopping the ie and the firefox from connecting to the net
so go ahead and remove the antivirus and the firewall and than restart the system and chk in the normal mode
if you still face the same issue ... that means you have a firewall still which is blocking
if you have a router reset it or disable the firewall in it
that will resolve it

I suggest you network the printer and access it through the wireless access point.  

Also, I do not mean to insult your computer smarts, but if you do not have a driver installed, you will not be able to talk to the printer at all.
