IS NORTON REALLY WOIRTHWILE


Many issues that pop-up on scanners such as Adaware and Spybot and Malwarebytes are adware items that attach themselves as a result of freeware you install or certain websites you visit. They are not in themselves a virus, but they do collect data on you, so these specialized programs will detect and allow you to remove them. I am not familiar with Norton, but many of the larger Internet Protection Suites do offer spyware protection, but it may not be enabled by default. Check you settings and make sure. That said, no one product will find everything. I run Trend Micro Internet Security and also run Malwarebytes monthly or whenever I feel I may have stumbled into a bad website. The key to survival is getting a knack for knowing where you are and what to avoid on the web. Just like walking around in a bad neighborhood may be bad for your health, surfing the backstreets of the Internet can be bad for your PC.

I have to keep signing in every time i use google mail.this has just started today.there is no box to check to keep me signed in for 2 weeks.


Log out of Google / Gmail

Within Firefox go to:

Tools - Options - Privacy

Click on link "remove individual cookies"

Find the Site google.com

Click button "Remove Cookie"

Logon to Google /Gmail and see if option to stay signed in appears

I've seen evidence that this doesn't always work the first time so try clearing the cookies a second time if the first attempt fails...

ok hopefully its a case of a highjacker which is a clever piece of spyware which hijacks the webpage you wanted to go on and takes you elsewhere you could do with a specific spyware scanner such as ADAWARE which will scan your pc for spyware, highjackers and harmfull cookies.
but if after that nothing it may come to the dreaded format and install or full factory restore hopefully not though and good luck hope it helped

you probably have viruses in your computer. and also spyware. you need software such as adaware or spysweeper and any good antivirus and let them scan your whole system though this will cost you. the free and sure thing to do is reformat.

When i use the IE8 for surfing n working on some important pages the system gets restarted offen... pls suggent any solution for tis as soon as possible. pls


the main reason that ie keeps crashing is because more and more web pages are becoming more dangerous which ie tries to avoid. here are a few suggestions that will help though.
don't open more than 6 ie windows at a time.
Block 95% of popups
Don't open too many applications at a time when running ie.
Increase your Internet Security
stay away from Spyware
Clear up your Startup Programs

You always have the option to download Firefox which seldom crashes and seems to avoid most virus and some spyware automatically. Firefox has a cookies tab in privacy that you can set

I use xp.. i download a file in internet after that ,everytime i start the computer theres always a virus(i have avira) but cant remove it..


Keep updating avira always and install spyware terminator to check is it spyware or not because avira free version only for virus but there is something like spyware, adaware, malware etc. Just try spyware terminator, update avira and if possible install Comodo firewall and block the unknown applications connecting to internet.

Try cleaning the unnecessary files using ATF cleaner (Simple and good) link below.

Virus protection


I'm assuming you mean "AdAware". If so, the answer is: No, you don't have to but it's advisable. This is because the Kaspersky software performs pretty much the same function as AdAware (as well as its other functions). So if you had both of them running, you'd have two products doing the same thing which would impact the PC's performance to some extent. Having said that, if the PC is quick enough for you, having both of them won't do any harm.

So, you could
  • Turn off Kaspersky's adware-blocking function and keep AdAware installed
  • Just uninstall AdAware
  • Leave them both installed if it causes you no problems.
whichever you find works better for you.

You'll find folks who'll come down heavily in favour of one solution or the other but in reality, there's nothing much to choose between them.

A virus in my pc


Dear Sir/madam,

This is malware/adware virus cookies. Sometimes happenend in yahoo, after that the system is crashing. Just download a best anti-spyware programme and scan it. It will detect and delete all the malware / spyware cookies. After that the internet is getting speed and runs without any problem.

Note : If your system antivirus with anti-spyware and all the total internet security features means u need to install before upon ur risk. Because it cause system slow....

Thanks
Good Luck
