Think Point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All these solutions sound nice. The problem is that even in "Safe Mode with Networking" I cant access anything on the computer that includes the start menu. So I cant install...


One way:
* remove the disk-drive from your computer
* install a different disk-drive (any old, 4GB or larger, disk-drive will work)
* install Windows onto that disk
* install anti-virus software onto that disk
* reconnect the previous disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive
* launch the anti-virus software, targetting that "slave" disk-drive
* shutdown
* disconnect the different disk-drive
* boot from the original disk-drive, now that it is virus-free

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.

I think there are too many viruses.


What is happening to your computer? If it is slow, and has trouble running programs, you may have to clean your temp files. From your main screen, select start, from here you will see, on the lower right side of that window, a item that says "Run". Select that. When that opens up, type in the following----

%temp%

This will open another window that will show you files that are saved into the temporary folder in your computer. Make sure that all programs are shut off, then go up to the "EDIT" tab, select all, then hit delete selected. This should eliminate any problems with the slowing of your computer. Do this once a week, every time you get on the internet, or do work on the computer, it stores a temp file of what you have done, Yahoo Messenger also seems to add a plethora of files into this when it opens. If you clean this file up on a weekly basis, you shouldn't have too many problems.

If you do have some persistent problems, try Webroot Anti-Virus/Spyware program.. it is the best i have ever used...
