Restore to factory condition


If you can get into the computer and onto the internet at all, download Combofix here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/

And run it. Do not reboot your computer while it is running, be sure to let it complete, this usually fixes virus issues in minutes.

How to remove a virus - free virus protection/removal software


<span>How to Remove a Virus With Software Recommendations</span><br /><br />In this tech article I will go over methods to protect and remove viruses from your computer. Viruses can cripple a computer and steal your personal information. You should protect your computer at all times and learn what and what not to do on the internet. <br /><br /><span>Free Virus Protection Tools</span><br />The following programs are free and highly recommended. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html">Spybot Search and Destroy </a>- This tool will scan and clean your computer from spyware. It will also run actively in the background to protect against infection. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.malwarebytes.org/">MalwareBytes </a>- You can use MalwareBytes to remove all forms of viruses from your computer but it cost extra to have the real time protection. Nonetheless, a very good tool and free to use. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download">AVG Anti-Virus</a> - The basic software is free and provides protection against viruses and spyware. It also has link scanning which can come in handy. <br /><br />It is important to keep these software utilities up to date with the latest virus definitions needed to protect and clean your computer. <br /><br /><br /><span>Removing Viruses</span><br /><br />-If by some chance you are already infected or the programs happen to let your computer get infected(not likely) then you need to take certain steps in order to completely remove the virus. If you have <span style="font-weight: bold;">System Restore</span> active in Microsoft Windows, you can restore the computer to a state before the infection. Afterwards, do complete scans of the computer using the programs above.<br /><br />-Malware will stop anti virus programs from running, and other basic computer functions needed to remove viruses like Task Manager and System Restore. If you are at a point of infection where you can't use any of your basic computer functions. You will need to boot the computer into Safe Mode without Networking(no internet). Once you boot into safe mode, run system restore or your virus removal programs. <br /><br />-You can boot into safe mode by continually pressing F8 as the computer is booting up. Then choose the Safe Mode option. <br /><br />-Be careful when using Facebook. There is a new trick going around to spread nasty viruses. Basically, the facebook app pretends to show you who your top friends are. There are no programs that can do this so if you see anything like this come your way, do not click it. Also, do not login to any facebook login except at the main facebook site. If you click on a link in facebook it may take you to a fake login page so be wary.<br /><br />-Be careful when clicking attachments in emails. Only open attachments from people you trust. Be sure to scan the attachments before you actually run/open them on your computer.<br /><br />-Be careful when downloading programs from websites you are not familiar with.<br /><br />-Make sure to keep Microsoft Windows up to date. New viruses and exploits are created monthly and Windows updates is a first line of defense.<br /><br />With these tools and tips, you should now be better protected against virus infection.

Slow computer withloading page.


Slow internet happens for various reasons..when it was slow?
is it while surfing the internet?
when running programs? either way, you can make it go faster. If your internet is slow, you should scan your computer for viruses and spyware using suitable programs.
If you still experience the same problem I would advise you to delete the computer after backing it up, and then installing a new copy of Windows. if your problem is with programs running slowly- I can advise you to download this software, which can extremely help- CCleaner ... check out the following and perform the speed test here It will be faster than before..

My pc is running so slow.


May be a silly question but have you run a disk cleanup and disk defragment on it, go into sstart button, all programs, Accessories, then to system tools and first run disk cleanup it will give you a window that you can choose things toremove such as tempory internet files and empty recycle bin, on my computer the boxes are alerady checked for the items I don't need to save, but the temp internet files take up extra space and slow down computer, not needed , aftwr that I run the defragmenter and it makes a big difference on the speed of my computer, also do you have virus protection? microsoft security essentials has free that you can download, only thing I would warn you about is stay away from Defender Pro anti virus of any kind, it froze up my compute r

Changed some things on BIOS to remove McAfee virus protection program because the computer was running slow. Now even my internet program (Mozilla Firefox) will not even download updates. I am not sure...


A slow running computer can be fixed by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Anyway, what are those things you have changed w.r.t BIOS? Make sure that you have removed McAfee completely through control panel.

Internet running slow


your graphics card will not affect the speed of your internet connection, but may affect the rate of video playback from streaming or downloaded video. when your internet slows down it b/c wither your machine is being overworked or your connection is being flooded.
from my experience, when internet becomes slow, the computer has started taking longer to start up 90% of the time. If this is the case for you, where you have seen a decline in overall performance of your system, you have more than likely been infected by virus, spyware/adware, and have too many programs requesting resources.

press ctrl+alt+del, select the task manager and click the processes tab. then click on the column names "username" two times. this will list all the processes beginning with the ones that started after windows initially started.

if there are anout 20 of them or more than you have programs needlessly running in the background.

you must select all the programs that start automatically and go to the options menu and deselect the box that says "run on system startup"
then run a virus sweep. if you dont have virus, spy/adware, and firewall protection(all 3) then you must get them ASAP. they will save your computer from needing technically assistance as often.

free-avg.com has a great free version that is very easy to use and does most of the work for you

GOOD LUCK

VERY SLOW..AND some internet not working!


One of the first things to do is download a program called "Malware Bytes" (Google it). Install and run the scanner/cleaner to wipe any nasties off of the machine. You may find that after running this program many of the woes you've described magically go away (especially the slow operation)...

I have virus scan running but cannot fully download the updated Internet Security Suite although I have already subscribed to this,although this was not necessary because I already pay to Mcafee Virus...


You might have a program(s) that are conflicting with your virus protection or have a virus already! In my experience with virus stuff, I would consider reformatting. Doing a clean install of the computer and uninstalling ALL virus protection that might be stuck in it with the factory settings and then finally installing the one that you want.
And if you want my advice for which is a great virus protection program- I'd suggest Avast. It's free and incredible with protection, plus it's not a resource hog and will free some up for you so you can run your computer faster.
But I'm not an expert so if anyone else may have a better solution- go for it. :D
