My computer will not open any program. it says that they are all infected. I cannot open the internet to download a virus remover. It will not open sysytem restore either.


Remove the disk-drive from your computer.
Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer.
Update the anti-virus software on that computer.
Do a "deep" scan of all the files on that "slave" disk-drive, to eliminate the virus.
Return the "cleaned" disk-drive to your computer.

Note that "best practises" state that you never can be 100% sure that you have "cleaned" your computer, and the only 100% solution is to buy a new (faster, bigger) disk-drive, and to install Windows onto it. Then, copy all your data files from the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive.

Remove most viruses with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware


At one or another, most of us encounter a virus. Most times it can be easily removed for free. All it takes is a little time and a free program called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. This program can be downloaded from &lt;http://www.malwarebytes.org/&gt;. <br /><br />If you have access to the internet on the infected computer, just download and install the program. If you cannot access the internet, don't worry. You can download the program on another computer to a flash drive or CD.<br />Install the program and save a shortcut to your desktop. Open the program and update it. Again, if you have no internet access you can still update the program following these simple steps.<br /><br />1. Install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on another computer.<br />2. Update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.<br />3. Navigate to the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware install folder.<br />4. Copy the rules.ref file to your flash drive. (if you can't find the file just use your operating system's search tool)<br />5. Replace the rules.ref file on the infected computer with the one on your flash drive.<br /><br />Now you need to start your computer in safe mode. Restart your computer and follow these steps:<br />1. Hit the F8 key repeatedly until a screen with several options appears.<br />2. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the selection Safe Mode and hit enter.<br />3. Allow the computer to boot.<br />4. Log in if prompted.<br />5. Open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from the shortcut you saved to your desktop earlier. <br />6. Select Perform full scan.<br />7. Make sure you select the C:\ drive and any other hard drives that may be infected.<br />8. Wait for the scan to finish (this may take a long time).<br />9. When the scan is complete, restart your computer.<br />10. Celebrate! You just successfully removed a virus!<br /><br />

I think my computer has no virus protection and everytime I try and download some it says I need to download a newer version of windows but also I have to appearently download a newer version of microsoft...


Which version of Windows are you using:
* Windows 95
* Windows 98
* Windows NT
* Windows 2000

Note that as of 13-July-2010, *NONE* of the above Operating Systems are supported by Microsoft. So, some anti-virus programs will *NOT* run on those "retired" Operating Systems;
you need to install a newer version of Microsoft Windows.

From another computer with Internet access,
download the FREE anti-virus software:

http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials

and copy the downloaded file to a USB memory-stick.

Move the memory-stick to your computer, and connect it.
Run the downloaded program on that memory stick, to install the anti-virus software onto your computer.

My Nieghbor loaded at least 3 rogue anti-virus programs onto her Acer. The netbook has 2 legitimate users. Most control panel, security center and other critical applications have been blocked from use...


sounds like spyware still got thru even with all the anti-virus programs running. Best thing to do is to save all the important data onto an external drive or flash drive and then reformat the drive and reinstall the drivers for the hardware and put the applications that you want back onto the computer. This time only install one anti-virus program onto the computer.

Got virus av guru, how do i remove it?


Hi

I know the last soluation will not have heklped as the av guru stops you from opening anything even IE so here is what u do.

Turn off your Computer!

Re boot and as oon as you get the start box appearing click on it,
Click All Programs
Accesories
System Tools
System Restore

The system will shut down automatically and resotore will start.
Leave this to run select a dtae 24 hours before you got virus and all will be well.

Trust me I had it early this week .

Once done run anti virus software, Spyware, Reg cleaner and Defrag

This will sort it completely.

NOTE:- You do have to be very quick with starting resore OR virus wil stop you opening anything.

Get back to me if u need anything else.
