I believe the movie is bait for a fly-by Trojan installer or scam.
Delete the file using the command prompt and scan your machine for malware !!!!

Use SEVERAL reputable anti-virus products, such as:

AVG, KASPERSKY, McAfee, SpyBot SD, Adaware
f-protect, black-light, rootkit revealer....


The target WEB site is no longer valid, but

"Whois.net"

The WEB site was recently created and then removed by
some **** in Germany.

You need to be extremely careful when downloading movies,
because most movie formats contain facilities for WEB links
and active Java scripts, which can contain dangerous malware,
or links to a daisy chain of evil websites that will in turn install
malware on you computer, if you are not EXTREMELLY careful.


Media files, such as AVI, MPG and WMV can also contain
code which will crash or even damage windows explorer as
soon as you click on the movie file, even without launching
the movie.

This is because Windows Explorer uses two DLL files:
shmedia.DLL and shimgvw.DLL which scan every media file
you touch in order to create preview thumbnails.

A carefully crafted media file will cause buffer overflow and
crash Windows Explorer.

These files are even extremely difficult to remove,
because windows will crash every time you touch them.

Don't use Internet explorer (any version) and use Firefox
instead. Disable scripts, except for trusted websites.

Download and Install Firefox addons to block scripts,
such as "No script" by Giorgio Maone.

This utility will prompt you to accept or reject scripts
when you are browsing.

Avoid *.wmv media files, they almost alway contain WEB
links as bait.

Be careful where AVI and MPG files come from.

Be suspicious of unreasonably small files, that come from
large numbers of peer to peer sources and download very
quickly. SCAM companies have the fastest servers on
peer to peer networks.

Scan EVERY downloaded file for malware.

Hopefully this will make you safer.

I want to unblock badoo in my system


Knowing how to block and unblock sites in your operating system can come in very handy, mostly if you have children you want to protect from accessing inappropriate content. Regardless of the reason why you would like to block and unblock sites, being able to perform this task will ultimately help you take control of your network and protect your computer from websites you consider useless or potentially harmful. Fortunately, blocking and unblocking sites is a simple task you can perform swiftly through your Web browser's Internet Options setting.

Launch your Internet Explorer browser and select the "Tools" option, which is displayed on the upper right corner of the browser's window. Click on the "Internet Options" selection displayed at the bottom of the drop-down menu and then select the "Security" tab. Select the red icon titled "Restricted Sites," which is displayed in the box below where it says "Select a zone to view or change security settings." Click the "Sites" tab featured below the "Restricted Sites" icon you just clicked on. Type the URL address of the site you would like to block in the text field displayed below where it says "Add this website to the zone:" and then click the "Add" tab to save the changes (you may block an indefinite number of sites). If you wish to unblock any of the sites you have blocked, simply go back to the "Restricted Sites" menu, click on the site you would like to unblock, which will be displayed below where it says "Websites:" and click on the "Remove" tab. use security zones in Internet Explorer http://support.microsoft.com/kb/174360 b> Using Firefox Launch your Firefox Web browser and open the support page for Mozilla Firefox (see Below). https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=parental+control&cat=all In this Web page you will be able to access an array of filtering add-ons you can utilize with Firefox to block and unblock any sites you want. Look through the various filtering add-ons available on the Mozilla Firefox support page and click on the option you would like to use to block and unblock sites. Keep in mind that some of the filtering add-ons require a payment and some don't. Click on the prompt that says "Continue to Download" or "Add to Firefox." The prompt that will be displayed to you will ultimately depend on the filtering add-on you chose; however, you will have to click on either options to download the add-on. Select the tab that says "Install Now," which will be displayed on a pop-up window. You may want to consider downloading the the FoxFilter add-on because it has the reputation of being prolific and it is free to use. Restart your Firefox Web browser once you are prompted to do so. This will occur after the installation process has finished. Once Firefox restarts, the Firefox filtering add-on you chose will be enabled and you will be able to block and unblock sites through the add-on.

Sir, I am trying to play the Movie "The Rite" (HQ)NTSC-DVD-RIP-ENG-2010-AVI) downloaded from Picktorrent in Media player classic but on the screen message comes " Codec is missing. please...


I am sorry, but you've downloaded a fake Torrent. The video you've download isn't a genuine copy but it's been uploaded by someone trying to fool people and let users waste their bandwidth. The website "www.codecavil.com" is also a not existing website. It's always important to read the comments and the ratings of a particular torrent before downloading. Actually using or accessing torrent or P2P isn't recommended since there are many viruses transferring to and from. But if you wish to use torrent tracking softwares, always download them from trusted users and trusted torrent trackers/websites. Notice the Comments and the Positing Ratings.

Note: There are many more similar fake torrents.. so beware before you download so that you may not waste time, energy and bandwidth..
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Help me unblock facebook friends that i have block


i guess ur using a licensed and updated antivirus (i prefer avg/kaspersky)..!!
this is a common problem now days, probably itz caused by a virus/trojan..

try using only --
http://login.facebook.com/login.php

download microsoft KB890830, install n run

also possibilies of:
u may not hv java runtime/adobe flash player/shockwave player installed..
the windows firewall is limiting the site..
may b ur antivirus is doing so..
some spyware/trojan horse also may play foul..
sometime it also depends upon the browser u r using..
may b it is black-listed or restricted by using 'content advisor' (in case of ie) in ur computer by some user or the above..
may b it is being filtered by the 'phishing filter'..
there may b possibilities that the site may contain 'active content'....
