Are you protected? do you get a message saying "scanning system for infected...

very often you may receive a pop up screen from your so called "antivirus"saying that its scanning your computer but 100% of the time that itself is a virus so always have an active antivirus and be careful for "scams" there are a lot of so called antiviruses out there that add viruses rather than removing them so if you do not have an antivirus then here is a personal favorite of mine works great hassle free and wont empty your pockets so take a look -----------> :)
also if you fear that you may already be infected by malware spyware fake antivirus and its causing your computer to run slow well this next program is another personal favorite no infection can escape from this program and it wont break the bank -------------> :D
i hope my tips help out

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x

right click to reinstall drivers

hope this helps

Spyware Protection screens keep popping up; saying that the computer is infected with different Trogans and viruses....and also requesting that you activate Spyware Protection to protect your computer. ...

Take note of the exact message you are getting and, preferably on a different computer, enter that message in a search window inside of quotes. The message you are getting is FROM the Trojan; you are already infected and you will need instructions on the removal. Entering the precise message will most likely identify the specific Trojan you have. Worst case, you may have to format your hard drive and re-install the operating system.

You fell for malware that is sent to 'infect' unsuspecting users. Since it will not boot up now, the best is to wipe the disk and install from scratch. A recovery disk from the same type should work, but no guarantees.

Audio driver sigmatel not installing automatically installed in windows xp my dell CD are creak and i can't installed my audio driver my Audio driver "sigmatel-9751"

Well if you have the drivers, please follow the instructions; Go to device manager.. Right click on the "My Computer" - "Manage" and from left pane, click "Device Manager" check if there's any "Yellowed" on the left pane, if so right click on the yellowed link and "Update driver" a new windows "Found New Hardware" wizard will pop up. Select "No, not this time only" and next, select "Install from the list or specific location" next - Tick mark "Include this location in the search" and Browse the driver to the location/directory where you saved it or to your Cd. Click open/Ok and follow the onscreen instructions, if you are prompted with any error message like "Driver digitally not signed" just click "yes" or "continue anyway" and then next. Of if you don't see any yellowed link then go to "Sound, video and game controllers" There it should be, follow the same instruction as mentioned above from "Right click on the yellowed link." Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Troubleshoot Computer Clock

To me that still seems that you may have a virus. A lot of times when you run Norton, Macafee, Spybot the virus knows what you are trying to do and hides it self.
Sometimes you have to use a kinda unknown Anti-Virus program (unknown as in, a lot of people really never heard of it). If I was you I would try this program and run a full scan.

The Program I want you to run is called Malwarebytes, it is a free program.

Steps to run it.

1. install (everything is set as defualt, so just keep pressing next or ok)

2. Run a full scan in normal mode (not Safe mode)

3. You should see something that says Objects infected (if that turns red, and there are number next to it. That is how many virus the program has found) If it does find virus please continue to the next steps, if not you are all set.

4. Once the scan is all done, you will see a button that pops up saying "scan done successful" press the ok button to continue.

5. Now on the bottom right you will see will it says "show results", press that button

6; Next you will see on the bottom Left "delete infected files" make sure you press that button.

7. You should see a note screen pop up, that is just telling you what the software found, just "X" out of that, restart your computer and you should be find.

8. after you restart your computer, the time might still be set as 1899, just fix it and then you should not have that problem again.

I hope this works for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

VGA Driver problem

You could be infected with viruses and spyware. Try booting into safe mode, access device manager and remove all entries under display adapters. Reboot to regular mode and try installing the driver. Do you get an error message when you install the driver? Does it see it atleast when you point at the location of the driver?
