Question about Toshiba PC Desktops

1 Answer

My mum and dad recently bourght me a toshiba L40 laptop. I downloaded msn messenger onto my laptop and someone sent me a trojan horse. My laptop started to get weaker and i started to lose things off it. It deleted files and my start bar and desktop files dissapeared. I lost internet connection as i was on wireless and everytime i turned my laptop on it turned back off. My laptop is only five months old and it is brand new. I have misplaced my reboot disk and i have searched everywhere for it but cannot seem to find it. I was wondering if you had any sollutions for me to try to fix my laptop.It is very important to me because i have exams and therefore need the laptop for revision work. If you could offer me a few sollutions i would be very grateful.Thank you

Trojan Horse Removal


A virus is program that has malicious content in it and replicates itself and a Trojan horse is program that will only work if the user executes it. Sometimes, a Trojan horse covers itself as a fake folder while in fact, it's an .exe file.
The good thing about Trojan horse is that it is not that hard to get rid of them. But the bad thing about Trojan horse is that it is a little bit difficult to find them.
Although, it does not corrupt files or delete data stored on your hard disk until you execute it. Once executed, it will allow the hackers to indentify your credit card number, social security number, bank account details or some other private information.
You can delete or remove the hidden Trojan horse with the help of antivirus software. Either, you can also try the manual process to delete it or you can follow these steps:
STEP 1 Open the System Information Utility (msinfo32.exe). You can find the System Information Utility by typing “msinfo32.exe” in ‘Run’. This program lists all the processes running on any Windows system, even those processes that are hidden from the task list. Now open your virus scanner and run the executable or .dll through it.
STEP 2 Open your antivirus software and run a virus scan. If you don't have a antivirus software installed, download AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5. And run a scan using it. After the scanning process is completed, delete the value that was detected from the registry (before doing this step, take a backup of the registry files):
A) Click ‘Start’ > ‘Run’.
B) Type "regedit".
C) Click "OK".
D) Go to the subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunServices
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices

E) Now delete any value from the right pane that was detected during the scan process.
F) Exit the Registry Editor.

I have a dell laptop with a built in webcam and it works fine however when i come to use it with msn messenger then it will not let the contact i'm chatting with see me or let me see them. hope you can...


You need to setup you MSN Messenger to control your camera. Download the latest version (MSN Messenger) first and install it. Sometimes older versions will not work with a cam. Also, download another messenger like Yahoo, and try that as well.

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

momo_aaliyah,

It is known that if you clock setting and your date setting wasn't correct, MSN Messenger won't let you sign in. Please check your date and time.

When i am on msn and want to put on webcam a message appears in a conversation saying Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)


This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:
