Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

Acer laptop not booting

I recently yad a trojan AV Security Suite attack on my Acer laptop. I cleaned the virus out using Microsoft Security in Smart Mode. I booted down the computer to restart it normally, however, when I start it, a menu pops up to either 'Start Windows Normally' or 'Smart Mode' as if I had hit F8 upon startup. Hitting both causes it to begin to boot normally, until a blue screen with text flashes and the menu comes back. I have no way to start my computer, so if someone could help, that would be awesome.

Try going to Safe Mode again by hitting F8 to see if the system starts, if so, then Click on Satrt Menu and under Run type: msconfig and hit enter key. A window will pop up and you can go into the startup tab and disable the progam that might be still present. Also go to the Services tab and see if there are any services for which the publisher is not displayed and disable those. Ussually all services that are important to the OS will be Identified as a Microsoft, or any other software Company that created the program. Once your done, then close the window and re-start the system.
I have a question: Which steps did you take to remove the infection? Can you describe them for me?

My dell mini is displaying lsass.exe - system error everytime i boot it up


HI gafleming27...

lsass.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.
Do the following to get rid of the trojan
*********************************************************************************************************************
To remove a virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer...do it the EASY way...let someone else do it for you.
Start your computer, as the computer is starting keep tapping the F8 Key.
This will start the computer in the Safe Mode.
Once in the safe mode go to the following webage below and download,install, and run Microsoft Safety Scanner for FREE.
Once you run the Microsoft Safety Scanner (it may take quite a while depending on the size of your hard drive) it will remove all the virus's,trojans,worms,etc it finds, if it does not completely remove them all you will be given a chance to chat with a Microsoft Professional thru a pop open window and he will take control of your computer (with your permission) and finish removing all the rest of the virus's, trojans, or worms that are on your computer for FREE!! Can't beat FREE!!
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Dear sir, We faced four times trojan problom and lost havi data from laptop so plese advice me how to protect trojan virus?


Hi,

Which Operating System you are using and which Anti Virus (AV) software is installed on your PC? Please let me know.
If your PC doesn't have an Anti Virus software I request you to install it soon. There are many AV available on the website, you can purchase a good one or you can use a trial version for few months and upgrade. I request you to update the AV daily.
Before using the USB flash drive do a scan with your AV that helps to detect and remove the Virus from the USB.
If the Trojan is enter on your PC (mainly on WINDOWS folder) its difficult to remove, so clean the PC with AV software once in a week.

Please let me know for further assistance.

For you to remove Virus from your Laptop, you must have an Antivirus software running on your laptop. I will recommend Avira Antivirus, its know to remove most viruses. Download the free version, install it on your laptop and run a virus scan on your system with it. This will remove the virus from your system.

I need to completely re boot my system to get rid of a virus (Security Tool) that will not let me get rid any other way


You probably have a virus that loads at boot time. The only way to get rid of it completely is to take the hard drive out of the system and connect it to a system that has a good AV app as a secondary drive, then use the systems AV to scan and clean the drive. I use AVG Free and Microsoft Security Essentials as my anti-virus suite with great results.

HOW CAN I REMOVE TROJAN VIRUS FROM MY PC?


Run your PC in safe mode with networking prompt as an administrator(because in normal mode the virus will not allow/let you to run a setup file if it's a dangerous virus).Install strong anti-virus like Kaspersky, NOD32 etc. registered version. Update the anti-virus in safe mode and also run.

I think it will help you.

Good Luck

Virus attack


A trojan Virus can be very nasty. I suggest going to www.avast.com and download the free home version virus scan. Disable and remove all other virus scans you have going to include the system resource hog Nortons or McAfee. Upon completeion of installation, it will ask you to do a boot time virus scan, click yes. Most Trojan viruses attack the system before they get completely started, therfor, makes them harder to remove.If you still need help after this, PLEASE feel free to conatct me and I will assist you further.
