    It is also telling me I have a worm.win32.netbooster. PLEASE HELP

  • Silverstar68 May 16, 2008

    I Tried what you suggested and it did not take care of the issue. I then contacted TrendMicro customer support and they had me do a scan in safe mode with their suggested cleaner and that did NOT work either. I do not know what to do now.

What is a virus alert


Well, a virus alert is *not* anything to do with chains and rope... which is the section you posted your question to.

A virus alert can be many things. It could be coming from your anti-virus program, and warning you that it stopped a virus from infecting your system. There are also "fake" antivirus alerts, where a site tries to get you to buy their malware by telling you you're infected with a virus.

You have to be careful and know what you're doing. The best thing is to get a trusted anti-virus program and keep it updated. I like Kaspersky Avast, and Vipre. Kaspersky is often available free after rebate.

Steps to remove Virus Alert that comes on system tray


There are several different types of viruses and malwares getting produced day by day. One such virus produces a label “Virus Alert” on the system tray besides the clock which keeps blinking. When we click on it then some site gets opened that displays virus and spyware remover software.

38166ce.jpg If these things has happened to you as well then your system has been hijacked!! But you need not worry as we can clean the system easily.
Steps to remove the virus:
1. First of all it is advisable to remove all the temporary files and history files. You can find these in the C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp folder. Delete the history from the internet properties.
2. Now to restore the system completely, we need to download a HijackThis script that will give the listing of all the processes that are running in the system which are also the prime suspects.
3. When you run the script, it will give you all the infected files. Once the infected file is found, you just need to delete the file. You may need to restart the system.
Steps to restore the system tray:
1. Virus Alert comes when the following value has been replaced with “Virus Alert”
sTimeFormat=h:mm: VIRUS ALERT!
in the registry
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International
2. To restore this go to start -> Run and type “intl.cpl” without quotes.
3. This will open a “Regional Settings properties” dialog box.
4. Now from the dropdown list under “standards and formats” tab re-select the region by selecting another region first and then selecting your Region again.
5. After hitting Apply, the problem would have gone.

When I try to access anything on my desktop Iget a security alert message from Wndows xp 2012. It then gives me choices - to register or continue to browse without security. Whatever I choose it...


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
Pretty much, you do have a spyware infection on your computer. Its a rouge or fake antivirus software that is pretending do be a legitimate software that displays numerous alerts about your computer's security. However, this situation is invented and the files 'detected' in most cases are harmless your system files that can't be removed because they are needed for a normal computer's functionality. To scare you into thinking that your machine is infected, it will ask you to buy their software. Thus, trying to steal your credit card information once you do so.
Be sure what type you have because that Windows XP 2012 has different variants. refer to the links below:
Windows XP Antispyware 2012 Windows XP Total Security 2012 Windows XP Security 2012 Windows XP Antivirus 2012 Windows XP Internet Security 2012
Once you know what is the exact malware that infected your computer, you could follow the removal steps on those links. I would like to inform you that deleting some items on the registry could cause instability to the system so I would suggest you back up your important data first.
You could also try running some automatic malware removal tool like Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware. Download those files on the links below:
Malwarebytes: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html SuperAntiSpyware: http://www.superantispyware.com/superantispyware.html
If all else fails, again backup your files and consider in reinstalling Windows on your computer because the malware could already scattered and infected some of the main system files for Windows

Hope this could help a lot!

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem...


You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,

Windows security alert keeps popping up. antivirus software alert keeps popping up. have mcafee antivirus but it says application cannot be executed. file is infected.


Hi,
Sounds like you have a XP virus. Turn your computer on and go into "safe mode with networking". once connected to the internet go to cnet.com. Go to the download tab for windows. Then download and install "malwarebytes".
Install the program and run it, this should take out the malware. If succesful, go to your computer icon, right click and then select properties. Turn of system restore and restart your computer. This will remove all the nasties. Remember to turn on system restore after this is completed.

Can not remove any programs from system in control panel, when I try the system responds back with setup.exe has encountered a problem and will now be closing


Hi,

I,d suggest A Virus-Malware et,c.
Run an antivirus software, if it lets you.
If you have also suffered with various pop-ups about security-Alerts et,c.
Then you,ve picked up A Virus-Trojan Horse-Malware et,c.
Run a scan, remove-heal infection et,c.
Failing this, re-install windows over itself, or Repair to replace any deleted/corrupt/missing Operating System Files.

Vista... I am getting a message that I have a security problem. How do I correct this when Norton Protection Center is not detecting this and is up to date


Security alerts on Windows Vista Monitors the following :

  • Anti -virus status
  • Anti - Malware Status
  • Windows Firewall
  • Automatic Updates
  • User Account Control
  • Automatic updates
Make sure that all of those are up to date and enabled, if one of those on the list is not enabled or up to date, Windows Will give you a warning that there is a security problem on the computer. Go to control panel and go to the security center settings to check :

**Note : If you see a fake alert like the image below, it is an infection and you need to remove it :
