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.

You fell for malware that is sent to 'infect' unsuspecting users. Since it will not boot up now, the best is to wipe the disk and install from scratch. A recovery disk from the same type should work, but no guarantees.

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.

Obviously you got an infection.In addition to that message and the fact that you cannot go to the internet, you probably don't have acces to the Folder Options on the Tools menu...Use a antivirus to clean it, Kaspersky http://www.kaspersky.com/downloads really does a good job on this kind of infections, orUse the System Restore application, and choose to restore your computer to an early date when you know it was working properly.When you get everything under control, take a look at Pc Laptop Guard at www.labellpcslutions.com to protect your computer from future issues.

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
