Tip

Do you have Norton Anti-Virus on your PC.


8 out of 10 computers have Norton Anti-Virus installed on their PC. Or you getting message to tell you to update your subscription? If so read on.

Have you notice that your PC is slowing down, or you getting blue screens, is your PC slow to boot, those your PC shutdown really slow. Are you getting pop-ups stating that your PC is infected. These are all symptoms of an out of date Norton Ant-Virus subscription. Even if you have have a current Norton Anti-Virus subscription you may still be infected.

OK, so here is how to fix your PC. First if you do not want to use Norton Anti-Virus anymore you need to remove it. You need to remove it from the control panel add/remove programs. You also need to get the Norton removal tool from Symantec, which makes Norton Anti-Virus. Watch my video from more details. Click here

So now your PC should be running better than before. Remember once Norton Anti-Virus is removed you need to scan it for viruses and then protect it. I recommend and personal use Avast, it is Free for home users and it simply works. Avast does not slow down your computer and it updates everyday with a visual and audio indicators. What more could you ask for. I use Malwarebyte's Anti-Mal ware on-line protection in conjunction with Avast for total protection. You can get that here. Try the free version first and it will get all those infections that Norton Anti-Virus failed to protect. Then upgrade to the Pro version if you need it. Here is the site http://www.malwarebytes.org/.

So now your PC is virus free and protected. What else can you do. I would get Ccleaner from www.ccleaner.com, this is also a free utility that I use. It removes all those temp files and other junk that is slowing down your PC. I do not recommend any registry programs. If you have any those on your PC. You need to remove them, they do not work.

The last thing you need to get is to de-frag your hard drive. I use this one. It is also Free so get it. Click here.

So now you are done and your PC should be a lot faster and better. However if you are still having issues you need to reload your whole operating system. Most people do not have the original CD so you will have to get a professional to do this. If you need help with that you can visit my site at www.adjustservices.com.

I hope this tip was helpful.

How to remove virus at hard dish pc


Using another computer, download the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and burn it to a CD disk.
Install the disk in the affected computers CD/DVD optical drive.
Run Malwarebytes.

There may be a LOT of pop-ups. So may in fact, that you may not be able to see the Malwarebytes screen, and wonder if it is running.

NO matter how many pop-ups you see, and no matter how real they look, DO NOT click on anything.
Let Malwarebytes run.
Average time is 42 minutes.

1) Free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware,

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

On this page click on Download Now in the green rectangle. (Ignore the other Start Downloads, etc. They are advertising for something else)

After you are finished running Malwarebytes, you may wish to turn System Restore OFF, and run Malwarebytes one more time.

THEN turn System Restore back on.

System Restore will also keep the 'virus'.


2) The 'virus' you have is a 'scareware malware',

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

When surfing, this ANtivirus 2009 alert came on and can't get rid of it. I've also gotten a green screen pop up informing me I have a SPYWARE.MONTER. What can I do? ...


Hey tjchan92,

Unless you personally installed the "AntiVirus2009" program or this other application, what you may be encountering are either misleading plug-in applications or your computer may currently have spyware installed. Generally, one of the best ways to determine what these programs are is to run a system scan using the full version of an anti-virus/spyware program such as Norton AntiVirus or McAfee VirusScan. Should you choose to do so, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the latest virus and spyware definitions available since new threats surface all the time.

Please keep in mind that I only mention Norton & McAfee as examples. These are by no means the only anti-virus/spyware programs available, and are simply among the most easily-recognizable brands available through many major retailers.

Alternatively, you may be able to minimize how often these windows appear by adjusting your internet settings. Doing so will typically block pop-up windows and banner ads from websites you visit, and can often be done by changing your Internet Explorer privacy setting to "Medium-High" or "High” through the “Tools” menu.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
