Hi there.

Another couple of good free ones are, the Microsoft Saftey Scanner (http://onecare.live.com/site/en-gb/default.htm) the Full Service Scan checks for viruses, malware, spyware, cleans your registry, even degrags your hard drive to speed up your pc.

And also, Windows Defender. A spyware and malware scanner available via the Microsoft Download Center:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=435BFCE7-DA2B-4A6A-AFA4-F7F14E605A0D&displaylang=en

Windows Defender runs best if you boot up in Safe Mode, and then run a scan, as this checks even more files in your system, as Windows doesn't load certain files in Safe Mode.

Hope you find it, and get it sorted.

Tim

Hi use an Antivirus software to clean your laptop , the newer AV software will also check for spyware which is what is residing in your laptop now . One AV software I can recommend is AVG which is free for downloading as well but in your case do not download it ,see if you could borrow a CD which contains the AVG antivirus most of the computer magazines in book stores will have a free CD/DVD included buy one like that preferably a new version of AVG would be better as of now its version 8.

Blank screen, Why won't it open?


Is the hard drive working? Probably infected. Can you plug in an external monitor to rule out hardware issues? If its not hardware, then you need to get a windows "pre-existing environment" or PE disk such as "hirens boot disk" to run minimal programs and clean the system of its infection. an infection has hidden the pathway to the operating system. You can rewrite the pathway in safe mode command prompt. You can do this only after the system is clean of infections. Its commonly called Black screen of death. You will need to use reset the winsock cache.



open command prompt

type "netsh" then press enter

type "winsock" then press enter

type "reset" then press enter



Computer will then restart to finish cleaning cache.

Computer freezes less than 5 min and screen goes white before it reboots itself. Laptop has less than 10hr on it.


If laptop has less than 10hr, it may still be covered by an exchange policy at the store where you bought it which is one possible option to resolve your problem. Anyways, here are some possible freezing causes...
1. hard disk drive has defective sectors (not likely but possible which is why there is exchange)
2. virus infection (pc usually come with a firewall and antivirus which you must activate)
3. conflict between two firewalls, two antivirus or two spyware/malware programs (suppose to only run one of each but often an antivirus program includes features like an internet security suite). To resolve, need to turn off or de-install the program(s) causing the overlapping conflicts.

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, Microsoft releases a free tool to address virus infections. The tool is called Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. It is usually downloaded in an infected computer's hard drive but if this cannot be done, the tool can be loaded into a USB stick or thumbdrive on another computer then inserted into the infected computer's USB port to be run. Microsoft also has online tools to scan and remove malware. For more information and download go to .... http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/malware-removal.aspx

Trying to send emails - getting the message to stop spammers we ask you to enter characters and cannot send emails


I don't understand the question well but it could be because you were infected and your computer was spamming then your ISP (Internet Service Provider) had to put you on a BLACK list if it is the case, first shut down the computer for minimum 24 to 48 Hours (so it stops spamming and your ISP gives you back your internit access) call them to make sure it is actually the problem, then make sure you have an UP TO DATE GOOD ANTIVIRUS, scan the computer to clean all infections...

if you want internet access sooner you have to change your MAC address to something els like changing the two last digits to FF then restart the router or computer (if the computer is connected direcly to the modem)

Good luck!

uTorrent or file sharing software do put you more at risk of virus infection due to their unrestricted nature. Personally I've come to the opinion that no matter how careful you are about what you download its not worth the risk.

Other sources of infection do of course exist, hijacked web pages and virus infected emails are common vectors. Tracking down the exact source of infection after the event can be difficult.

virus protectors are like things in ancient world now days its spyware virus scanners lost there credibility to spyware programs cause spyware is quicker faster and they hide better but not from proper proggies
you need a strong firewall program like zone alarm
and spyware programs like spywareblaster and spy bot these programs are free bee's not shareware full functioning programs
you need to upgrade service pack 2 and internet explorer 7 with built in pop up blocker

wacovia pop ups are a phishing program looking to destroy comps these are spy ware and trojans hiding ready to strike once you get the recommended programs up these spy's should disapear
