You need to find the path to where the virus file is located & delete it you're self. You're antivirus software should show you where it is located. Once you delete the virus file, shut down the PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open you're case & remove you're memory. Wait about 15 seconds & reseat you're memory. (make sure you're memory is seated correctly).
Removing the memory clears the memory from memory virus).
Close you're case & reconnect the power cord. Boot the PC. Once windows has finished loading run windows diskClean, than run windows defrag. (may take some time). After defrag has finished restart you're PC. Run another virus scan. If you're virus software still finds a virus or you're system & its still running slow the virus may have damaged windows files or windows registry. A reinstall of windows may be needed. If you have system restore turned on than the virus is most likely being stored in one or more restore points.
Remove infected files that you cannot clean in the System Restore data archive. To completely and immediately remove any infected file or files in the data store, turn off and then turn on System Restore. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Performance and Maintenance, and then double-click System.
3. Click the System Restore tab, and then click to select the Turn off System Restore for all drives check box.
4. Click OK, and then click Yes to initiate the restore point deletion.
To turn on System Restore again after the restore point deletion has completed, repeat these steps, but click to clear the Turn off System Restore for all drives check box.

Good Luck!

Mike

My Dell Inspiron E1505 will be on for half an hour to an hour before Windows Explorer (and pretty much everything else) stops responding and I'm forced to turn it off. I've run registry cleaner,...


Hi vincent172...
I think you have a virus,worm,trojan,etc on your computer.
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

How to speed up computers.


**1The main reason which slowdowns system is VIRUS ATTACK.
Powerful tool to avoid this is installing Anti Virus.
Anyhow installing a anti virus is not sufficient.You need update the anti virus continuously(once for a week)
Updating means:-Hackers will generate the viruses and they will upload those viruses to internet data base every day.Which enters our computer when connected internet.The companies which provides the anti virus software will scans those viruses and they update those virus name our anti virus data base so that if any programs by those virus names which are in anti virus data base.Anti virus will block those programs.
So It's necessary to update the anti virus program continuously.

If you have genuine Windows operating system you can use "Microsoft Security Essentials" for FREE.



**2The reason which slowdowns PC is creation of unwanted sectors in hard disc.


For this Defragmentation is the best method to clear unwanted sectorsTo defragment the hard disc Select the partition>Right click>Properties>Tools>Defragment disk>Defragment>ok
Watch this...

**3)Another aspect which slow downs the system is creation of error sectors
you can use Check Now option to clear error sectorTo activate Check Now*Select the partition>Right click>Properties>Tools>check nowIt check for error during next reboot


**You can use "CHKDSK" command in DOS(instant check)


**3)You can use Disk Cleanup to delete temporary files,offline pages,log files, queued and error reports(These files are not important and files consumes much memory which can't cleared by us so we need to use Disk Cleanup.
To use this thisSelect the partition>Right click>Properties>select Disk

Cleanup (Disk Cleanup can be used for C: drive only effectively(Because temporary files,offline pages,log files, queued and error reports are saved in C: only)


**Options and Menu's are with respect to Windows7 & Windows related operating systems.

Thank you have a nice day

Too much virus inside this mobile. There is not any virus cleaner inside this mobile .always stop during runing after 5 min.want 2 get online cleaning free if available.


use f-secure. but the thing bout f-secure is, it only gives you a month for free updates. You could extend it by paying for new subscriptions though but for me, anti-virus aren't really necessary on our N73 as it cannot in any way target the OS and destroy it directly. You must take note that applications for N73 undergo signing process, thus making it much more secure than of the previous versions. If ever there would be a virus that could enter your phone, one great harm that it can do to your phone is to slow it down but it is a fact that it couldn't trigger your OS. Even I myself don't use anti-virus applications, it takes too much of your ram and free space, it slows down your phone a lil bit too. Just be vigilant mate... No virus could be tough enough to pass through a human-firewalled N73.
install the Netqin antivirus.download it from here

Do I need a Norton-type security for my laptop, or is AVG sufficient ?


Hi,
AVG is more than sufficient for a home computer.
Norton takes quite a lot of system resources and slows computers down dramatically. AVG on the other hand uses 2/3rds less resources than Norton and is just as good.

My browser Internetexplorer is working too slow or not working

Anti Virus


Kapersky Internet security is the complete software suite, and it does include, firewall, internet security and some anti spyware feature.

Internet security is better, but it will also slow down the computer more.

If you have a good computer with at least 1 GB RAM, and CPU at least 1.6 GHZ intall Internet security. If the computer is slow or it is an old computer, then install antivirus only, and be more careful.

Remove file


Hi,
Here is more info on the critter:

http://spywarefiles.prevx.com/spywarefiles.asp?FXC=BHJI036815472

1) Reboot windows in SAFE mode by pressing F8 during the
boot repeatedly.

2) Use a virus remover like AVG or Kaspersky

3) Alternately remove the files manually.

4) If the files refuse to be removed, reporting a locked file
error, download a product called file unlocker:

a) unlocker1.8.5.exe or
b) who locked me from: http://www.dr-hoiby.com or
c) killbox.exe from: vbtechcd@gmail.com
d) File Assasin from:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/fileassassin.php

5) Any of these utilities will delete the file by brute foerce
if necessary

6) Download Mike Lin's Startup monitor (all 3)

a) Control panel applet
b) Stand alone program
c) Resident startup monitor

These three utilities will allow you to audit startup keys
in your registry and automatically stop rogue programs
from installing themselves without your permission.

7) Remove all suspicious programs from registry startup
locations:

HKLM = HKey Local Machine
HKCU = HKey Current User ....

Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current_Version ...

Run, RunOnce, RunOnceEx, Run SErvice, etc...

8) Install a reputable antivirus (with a license) and keep it
up to date:

e.g. AVG, Kaspersky, McAfee etc.

9) Disable most of the resident monitor function, because
these tend to slow your system down, BUT ....

Manually scan all downloaded files BEFORE
opening them

!!!!!!!!


10) Download and install two free anti-spyware utilities:

AdAware by LafaSoft
SpyBot Search and Destroy

make sure you get these from the official sites,
beware of evil lookalikes.

11) Go to winternals WEB site, formerly Sysinternals,
and download security utilities by Mark Russinovich
(now at Microsoft)

Anti-rootkit and scanners for ADS
(Alternate Data Streams)

12) Go to F-Secure web-site, and download another anti-
root-kit utility called black light.

13) Download and install the Mozilla Firefox WEB browser,
never use Internet explorer (any version) except for
Microsoft updates

14) Install the following Firefox security plug-ins:

AddBlock Plus
ColorFul Tabs
Finkan Secure Browsing
Flash Block
Google Icon
NoScript (Very important, stops evil scripts)
Stop Autoplay


15) If you do all of the above, you will get very few viruses.
