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.

Remove virus on hard disk and usb's


Insert your USB drive in the appropriate USB slot in your computer.

If the Autoplay dialog box appears, select "Take No Action" and click the "OK" button.


Launch your anti-virus program, such as AVG Antivirus or Anti Malware.

Select the USB drive for the program to scan.

Click the "Start Scan" button or option.


Open the scan history for the USB drive when the scan is complete to see a list of viruses and warnings identified by the antivirus software.


If desired, select the options to "Heal All Infected Files" or "Move the Infected Files to the Virus Vault" to ensure these files are quarantined from your system.


Highlight each infected file in the scan history. Write down the file name of each infected file identified on the USB drive. Minimize the application's window.


Select "Run" from the Windows "Start" menu. In the Run window, type "e:/" at the command prompt to switch to your USB drive (or type the drive letter for your USB drive). Press the Enter key.


Type "attrib -s -h -r -a *.*" at the command prompt to remove the system, hidden, read-only and archive file attributes.

Press the Enter key.


Type "del ####.+++" where "####" is the file name of the infected file and "+++" is the file extension, at the command prompt line.

Press the Enter key.


For example, "del terriblevirus.exe" will specifically delete the Terrible Virus executable file. Repeat for each infected file on your list identified in Step 4.


Close the command prompt window; that is, exit the Run utility.


Maximize the window for your anti-virus program (which is still open) and repeat Steps 2 to 7 until no virus is detected on your USB drive.

Exit the anti-virus application.

or
Click start click on my computer you should see your usb drive right click then select format.

another way is to control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right Click on your drive select format



Hope this helps

My laptop is infected with 44 viruses in which I cannot download a free antivirus, what shall I do to remove this, everytime I download antivirus it always infected.


There are 2 solutions to this problem. 1. Formatting of your laptop. as a result of formatting your laptop, you may loose valuable informations as well as programs. 2. Downloading a Norton 360 antivirus program into your laptop. after download, you can scan and fix viruses. this will work perfectly well. If your computer doesnt allows you to perform a download, simply download from another computer into an external device such as a USB device and transfer the Norton 360 setup flies to your laptop and run it. after installation process, scan for viruses and fix. I hope this helps.

Remove virus


Hi there,

to remove a virus all you need to do is move it to vault then delete it. Vault is a common term used in softwares such as Norton, AVG, Trend and more. If there is no Vault check the virus bin or trash. once deleted they should be gone.

For more serious viruses you may need to do a clean install or delete the file it is affecting.

Internet Explorer script error do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Library not registered


it could be possible that The author of the webpage you are accessing has simply made some sort of programming error and this is typically the most common reason.or that You are possibly running a pop-up killer of some kind which closes the pop-up too quickly which causes the script of the website to fail and thus giving you the error because it didnt complete.
possible You (still) have some sort of spyware or adware infection that tries to launch something such as a popup but causes script errors.
this is the most likely issue in your situation.

Solution:

1. Make sure your Anti-Virus software is up-to-date and then run a full system scan.

2. Try running a scan with other malware detection software. (Malwarebytes )

3. Be sure your are not running Rogue Anti-Virus software ( Security Center, Anti-Virus 2009, and Anti-Virus 2010).

4. Take a look into the Event Viewer to see the path of where the script is coming from. Some more detail may show up in the Event Viewer log)

5. Run windows updates and install any critical/important updates.

hope this helps

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.
