Hi! my comp is nfected with a trojan masquerading as a security tool. it keeps popping dlhost.exe is infected with virus DOS.Jeff.812 this worm is trying to send our credit card details using dlhost.exe...


First try this but be careful:
To remove Trojan, you must first stop any Trojan processes that are running in your computer's memory. To stop all Trojan processes, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to open the Windows Task Manager. Click on the "Processes" tab, search for Trojan, then right-click it and select "End Process" key.

To delete Trojan registry keys, open the Windows Registry Editor by clicking on the Windows "Start" button and selecting "Run." Type "regedit" into the box and click "OK." Once the Registry Editor is open, search for the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Trojan." Right-click this registry key and select "Delete."

Finally, to completely get rid of Trojan, you must manually remove other Trojan files. These Trojan files can be in the form of EXE, DLL, LSP, TOOLBAR, BROWSER HIJACK, and/or BROWSER PLUGIN. For example, Trojan might create a file like
%PROGRAM_FILES%\Trojan\Trojan.exe. Locate and remove these files.

OR

If you can pass to the Windows interface you can run a Trojan remover like this one Trojan Remover at cNET. If not do it manually, instructions HERE

How to disable/enable Microsoft Windows startup programs


In this guide I will show you how to enable or disable startup programs in Microsoft Windows. Disabling startup programs can help your computer boot up faster and remove some of that garbage that clusters your desktop when you first boot up your computer.

In Windows go to Start and click Run. In the Run box type "msconfig". You will now get a new window that opens up like below,

g33k4u_1.gif

Click the "Startup" tab. In this tab you will get a list of programs that will launch when Windows starts up. The more programs that start up, the slower your machine will be. You can speed up your computer boot process by disabling unnecessary programs. To disable a program, uncheck the box next to the program you wish to not startup. Some examples of unnecessary programs are Itunes, Google Talk, Skype, software updater programs or any other programs that you don't wish to be started when Windows opens.

Alternatively, you can enable certain programs to startup when Windows boots. Just check the box next to the program you wish to startup.

Make sure to hit the "apply" button once you are done!

I hope this article was informative.

Regards,
G33k

Download the Blackberry Desktop Manager from https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22, after downloading run the setup and after completing this step.

I want to uninstall spy sweeper but I can't. I get a runtime error. How can I uninstall?


Hi Friend,

Close the SpySweeper Program
  • If SpySweeper isn't closed properly, it may not uninstall completely. Click the SpySweeper icon on the Windows toolbar, then choose the "Exit" command to close it. Hold down the "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" keys at the same time to open the Task Manager. Select "Processes" and look for a process called "spysweeper.exe." If you find it, choose it and then click "End Process." Next, look for a process called "WRSSSDK.exe" and follow the same procedure to close it if you find it.

  • Uninstall SpySweeper
  • Go to the Windows "Start" menu from the toolbar, then choose "Control Panel." Locate the "Add/Remove Program" option and choose it. Once the list of available programs is populated, find and select SpySweeper. Click "Uninstall" and let Windows complete the uninstall process. You will get a message when it is done.

  • Test the Computer
  • Reboot your computer, and once it has restarted, look for the SpySweeper icon on the toolbar. If it is absent, hold down "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" to open the Task Manager. Under "Processes," look for "spysweeper.exe" and "WRSSSDK.exe." If the uninstall was successful, you will not find them. If they are running, end them and go through the uninstall process again

    I have two palm treo 650s - one that i use all the time and one that i use for back up - each time i sync the back up treo from the one i use all the time, it duplicates the info on the back up - any help...


    Doing this isn't too complicated, though it can be a bit frustrating to keep them straight.
    The safest thing to do is backup your primary phone during a regular sync.
    1. Once you have performed and completed this, then open your Palm Desktop.
    2. Look to the upper left hand tab marked "Hotsync" and click it.
    3. On the drop down menu, click "Custom."
    4. Here's where it turns into a bit of a process...you must now set each of the sections in this list to "Desktop overrides Handheld." To do this highlight each one then click "Change" once you do this you should have the option to override your handheld. If it doesn't appear then you simply do not have this option available. When you've completed all overrides, click "Done."
    5. Click "Sync your back-up Treo as you normally would. This should make your backup identical in information to your primary.
    --------------------------------- 6. Once you are ready to go back to your primary, You must go back your Palm Desktop and enter into the "Hotsync" tab and then "Custom" again. This time, however, make sure you select "Handheld overrides Desktop."
    7. Once this is performed, you may hotsync your backup to your desktop.
    8. After the hotsync, go back to the desktop software a final time. Go to the "Hotsync" tab and then "Custom" a final time. In each selection, choose "Desktop overrides Handheld." Click "done" when finished.
    9. Finally, perform a final hotsync with your Primary phone. Once completed, it should have all your original information PLUS any new information you placed on the back up phone.
    Again, I know it isn't an easy process...it isn't as hard as it sounds...it just takes some getting use to! You can do it!
    I hope this helps!

    How to remove BV malware gen on my PC c:windows/pc.off bat


    Before we begin, you should save these instructions in Notepad to your desktop, or print them, for easy reference. Much of our fix will be done in Safe mode, and you will be unable to access this thread at that time. If you have questions at any point, or are unsure of the instructions, feel free to post here and ask for clarification before proceeding.


    Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

    Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
    (Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

    Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
    • Restart your computer
    • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
    • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
    • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
    • Choose your usual account.
    • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
    • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
    • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
    • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
    • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
    • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
      (Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
    • Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum.

    Hard drive/memory/speed


    music files and photo files take up a lot of memory/space on a hard drive. If you are using your flash dirve (external drive) to upload songs, phots etc to a website (i.e. Facebook;MySpace etc.) you can upload them directly from the external drive rather than loading them to your computer. I suggest, that if you have a cd/dvd burner, burn all music and photo files to dic, if your external drive is for temporary storage. Once you have done this, remove all music and photo files (except any you may want to use as start up theme music, background use for desktop etc.) then, degragment your hard drive, C:\. Once the degragmentation is complete, close all programs and reboot your computer. NOTE: while you can operate the computer while a defragmentatioin is in progress, any use slows this process, as degragmentations (or defrag's) can take some time to complete (i.e. 1 hour or more depending on the status of the computer and it's need for being defragmented) You can run an analasys to determine if it need to be defraged. This can be done under the Start Menu,All Programs, Accessories, System Tools,Disc Defragmenter: When Disc Defragmenter Opens, it will give you a list of the internal (hard drives,including the D:/ Partitioned Drive) Select C:\ and click on Analyze. This should only take a few minutes to complete. Once the Analysis is complete, it will tell you directly whether or not the computer (Drive C:\) needs to be defragged. In the event it does not, You can also run a Disc Cleanup: Go to Start Menu, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disc Cleanup. Be careful doing this as you do not want to remove any programs that you use on a regular basis, or frequently, that the computer automatically may deem "seldom used". Here, you can remove, or uninstall programs and files that you or the computer do not need, and free up space. Freeing up memory or space will improve speed a little bit. Depending on the OS (operating system) and it's current grade (upgraded or not) - you may need to have more memory and RAM installed.
