Hijackthis is a first line tool to examine certain areas of the computer. It does not show everything and lots of malware is hidden from it

To download Hijackthis

go to http://www.download.com/Trend-Micro-HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10227353.html and download 'Hijack This!' self installer. Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu.
Click on the entry in start menu to run HijackThis
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Thank you Ian C. emmit6378@yahoo.com

so first try another copy of that setup.exe file.then check your system for virus or windows problem if another file is also not working.

Can a virus infected pc be treated instead of reformatting it?


Yes it is possible but it may not fully remove the virus, it depends upon the type of virus infection.
If you have not installed a virus protection program, then this makes your task more difficult.
I would try a WEB base virus removal program first, provided you can connect to the Internet. Try these WEB base virus links first and if successful then install a virus program.
WEB-based Virus Scan Trend Micro housecall
http://housecall.trendmicro.com
symantec - Norton Security Scan
http://security.symantec.com
If all fails then you need to format your hard disk and install Windows again together with the computer's device drivers and your programs.

My desktpo has a virus and i have no antivirus


If you have a virus, you should not try to install an antivirus program until you've cleaned up your machine.
Try one of these sites: www.trendmicro.com and use the free "housecall" utility.
You could also go to support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml and scan

After starting my pc my chosen desk top vanishes and in its place there is black back ground. even after resetting it the black ground reappears. help!


I've seen this virus recently, but can't recall the name. Some viruses will change your desktop background, and you just can't get them changed back!

If you have an anti-virus program you can try to scan using it but if you already have a virus you can't really trust the results from your anti-virus program.

Download a free or trial version of a well respected anti virus program, install and run.

To clean up a PC that's already infected, I'm partial to Malwarebytes free software (http://www.mawarebytes.com). It's not "always on" protection, but it's great for removing viruses. Make sure to update before scanning!

Good luck!

How i can protect my pc from virus.pls help me


To protect your computer system from viruses, you should install an updated anti virus. I recommend you to use full version of avast antivirus or AVG 8. Scan your computer and when viruses are detected, delete those infected files and viruses found from the virus vault. Also manually update it. Don't forget to install only one antivirus on your system. Installing more than one antivirus may clash down your system.

How can i remove virus


You can remove virus by using updated antivirus. Install it on your computer. I recommend you to use updated AVG 8 or AVAST antivirus full versions because it will surely remove viruses from your system. Scan your computer with the antivirus and don't forget to delete all the infected files and the viruses found in the chest or mostly known as virus vault. Use only one antivirus on your system because using more than one antivirus may crash down your computer.
