Want to scan my computre i have a virus

Disable your antivirus system (if any) and download the comofix file from this link. Extract the zip file, run the combofix.exe file and follow the on screen wizard.
Note that this file is not an antivirus softare, it's just a clean up tool. After the computer has been fixed you have to install an antivirus software, I suggest Avast in case you need a free solution.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

I am not able to format the pen drive transcend

If you are not able to format pen drive,then you may have a different virus infection related issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC: 23&pkj=RRJEDTKJBTVISBYWWYP

An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.

You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.

I have used AVG Free ( ) , and Avast Free ( l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.

I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.

In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.

Good luck!

How to down load anti virus?


If you have the disc, insert it and just follow the onscreen instructions. Once it asks for the product key, get the cd casing and look for the product key there. Type it in and it should finish the installation.

However, if you don't have any CD. You can either download free anti-virus or purchase from the internet. Here are three of the anti-virus that I know. They are proven and tested to be of high quality. Just take a look at their websites to download the software from there. It's up for you to decide which one you would like to download. Remember, to install only one anti-virus in your computer to avoid problems. Just click on the list below to be directed to the site.

1. AVG Free Edition for Windows

2. Avira AntiVir Personal for Windows

3. Avast Home Edition for Windows

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya.

I can not find updates for Kasper sky 2010

Is your Kaspersky 2010 original? If its not genuine or original than Kaspersky 2010 is very good at catching a non legit copy and black listing it in his on site database therefore the updating will stop.
The solution is that you buy an original copy of this Anti virus. The second option is that you can download AVG free edition. Its a very good anti virus and updates quite well. You can download it from the following link.

Good Luck!

or if you have the linux live cd then boot from that cd then delete those files and then reinstall XP ..

you cant install the office update from microsoft site because the microsoft office & windows you are using is not the genuine version so microsoft allows to download and apply the updates for the genuine users ....
download some good antivirus like kasperky,norton,mcaffe and install it
