THE LAST OPTION AND THE SAFEST ONE IS THAT BACKUP UR DATA AND FORMAT YOUR HARD DISC. THIS WILL ELIMINATE ANY FURTHER INFECTION BY THE SAME VIRUS IF ITS NOT REMOVED BY THE ANTI VIRUS.

Computer says server not found


too many causes.....and what OS are you using ?

boot into safe mode and run scans with your anti-spy/ad-ware tools
(Malwarebytes.org is a good free one....and it works in Safe Mode..for 32 or 64-bit systems.)

It runs multiple screens with the message internet script error


Hi hbatessr. You have a virus/spyware problem. Whatever has infected your system is trying to access different websites. You need to install and run a spy-ware and anti-virus program to resolve this. If you want some free programs, go to www.download.com and search for and download AVG anti-virus free version and Ad-Aware free version. Once you update and run both of these products, you will find lots of stuff that has infected your computer and needs to be deleted.
Hopes this helps!

My computer screen continues to pop-up a balloon that states "you have a security problem." How can it be fixed?


Its seems like you have infected with spy ware of sometype. first of all look at the task bar, I am sure there is a yellow triangle or something similar with a ! mark on it, if try to close it, it wont give you that option. So first of all, turn on windows defender download the updates and run the spyware check. IF this does not help get a antivirus/antispyware s/w and run it. Lets see how that goes.

Windows waring message, warning syware decteteted on my computer. it says to install spy ware but i have alreredy have and it will not go off the montor. what to do???


The program that it is telling you to install is the actual spyware, do not allow it to install.
Go to www.malwarebytes.org and download Malwarebytes, this is a free utility for fighting that sort of thing and should be able to get rid of it for you.

I am trying to delete everything on the hard drive and start over


It sounds like your recovery disk is damaged or scratched.
Hold the disk, data side up, and look for any small scratches or finger print smudges.
You can clean it with a soft cloth and warm water, by wiping from the inside out (don't wipe "around" the disk).
If it has scratches, you can find a disk repair device at most Audio / Electronics stores (like music stores) and try cleaning the scratches off that way.
If the damage is too severe, you may have to see if you can find a different recovery disk, or you may have to pruchase a copy of Windows to install.

Spy ware


It depends on the infection. My first recommendation would be to ditch Trend Micro, and get a better antimalware program (it's not very good compared to alternatives). Much better alternatives include; 1. NOD32 (or if you want the suite, NOD ESS) www.eset.com 2. Kaspersky www.kaspersky.com 3. Avira www.free-av.com 4. Avast www.avast.com 5. Malwarebytes AntiMalware www.malwarebytes.org Each of these include trials and/or free versions that you can use to get rid of the infection. I'd also recommend following it up by posting a HiJack This log to one of the many support forums available, including TeMerc Internet Countermeasures; www.temerc.com/forums To do so, please see the following instructions; http://temerc.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=18 A list of other trusted support forums can be found at; Alliance of Security Analysis Professionals http://asap.maddoktor2.com
