Question about Insignia D300a PC Desktop

1 Answer

Internet connection My son ran a spyware/virus protection software on our Insignia model C170 desktop PC and it located and removed a virus during which he thinks it also removed our internet setup. I spent a hour on the phone with our internet service tech (Windstream) and they set up my account again and we are still unable to connect to the internet. After it does through the dial up and says a connection is made when we click on the intenet icon it tells us "unable to connect to the server" The internet service tech says their in nothing wrong with my internet service and that it is something wrong with the PC. Can you help?

    Help! I tried the solution you gave me and we still can't get on the internet. I also noticed that there is no domain name or homepage showing. The homepage is greyed out so you can't even enter anything in that box. What is suppose to be in the domain name?

You need to run these 3 essential programs to remove all the spyware on your computer.

If you do not have an internet security suit and only an anti virus

Use Mozilla firefox or the google chrome browser for browsing unsafe websites

Install ThreatFire.ThreatFire, features innovative real-time behavioral protection technology that provides powerful standalone protection or the perfect complement to traditional signature-based antivirus programs offers unsurpassed protection against both known and unknown zero-day viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, spyware, adware and other malware.

You will find nothing better then Nod32 by Eset. It will remove the virus that you have now, and it will stop any problems later on. You don't need to have anything else to protect your computer. It is by far the best program out there to stop virus, malware, spyware and things of this nature

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially and if I may remark, a very challenging and time consuming virus cleanup. Some that you could try:
  • determine what virus files/names are involved. Some would be appearing in "msconfig" startup;
  • some would not allowed to be deleted, try delete in Safe Mode;
  • in some instances, some services would have to be stopped using Ctrl-Alt-Del;
  • download, install and run RRT (remove restriction tool);
  • download, install and run Ad-Aware.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My system did an automatic update. Now I get a message that says that my backweb-137903.exe has been moved and so my HP center does not load. I looked for the file but it is not present on my PC. I also...


This error message probably occurred, because a spyware removal application incorrectly detected the Updates from HP Connections or Compaq Connections client software (developed by BackWeb Technologies), as spyware and improperly removed it. Since only part of the client software was removed, the errors displays because the software cannot fully open when Windows starts. Updates from HP or Compaq Connections is a messaging service that comes pre-installed on HP and Compaq desktop computers. The service provides product notices, support updates, tips, and special offers specifically for your model of HP or Compaq PC. If you no longer want to use Updates from HP or Compaq Connections, HP or Compaq Connections can be uninstalled through Add/Remove programs. If you still want to use HP or Compaq Connections to receive information regarding your PC, complete the following steps: CAUTION: Performing a System Recovery replaces system files and original software with the files that originally came with the PC. This process may move or remove certain files, like those stored in My Documents. Before performing a System Recovery backup important files and the files stored in the My Documents folder.Be prepared to reinstall software that was not originally included with the PC. You will also need to reconfigure an Internet Connection and obtain all critical Windows Updates, Virus definition updates, and anti-spyware updates. To resolve this error, reinstall the Updates from HP/Compaq Connections client software by performing a standard recovery:
  1. Remove all connections from the PC except keyboard, mouse, monitor and power cable. If any internal hardware such as a video card, or sound card has been added, they should be removed or disconnected.
  2. Restart the computer and press the F10 repeatedly after the logo screen appears.
  3. Click Next when prompted.
  4. Read and respond to the screens to recover the computer.
After the computer is recovered and you have completed the setup, you can do any of the following items to prevent the error message from displaying:
  • Adjust the settings in the spyware removal application to bypass the Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software.
  • You can uninstall the Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software before using your spyware removal application: Uninstall Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software by clicking Start , Control Panel , Add/Remove Programs , Updates from HP/Compaq Connections , and clicking the Remove button. NOTE: If you remove the Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software, you should visit the product support page for your PC model, HP Support and Drivers Search , for the latest information and software updates.
HP does not consider HP or Compaq Connections spyware software. If spyware removal software detects BackWeb as spyware and you would still like to remove HP or Compaq Connections, it should not be removed through the Spyware removal software. Instead, uninstall BackWeb using Add/Remove Programs as shown above.
