Hi There,

You have a virus.

1.With your computer completely shut down, push the start button and begin rapidly tapping the F8 key until you see a window in black and white with a choice to open Windows in Safe Mode. Select it using the arrow keys and hit enter. Be patient while it loads to the desktop.

2. Open a browser window and type in "Malwarebytes Free Download". Download and install Malwarebytes. Run the program at the Quick Scan setting and when it captures your virus and finishes the scan, follow the directions to remove the virus/viruses.

3. Restart your computer and if you arrive at the F* window again choose "Start Windows Normally".

4. Now back to normal, download a little program called "Ccleaner". Install it and run it to clean up your temp files and registry.

That should do it.,



  1. 4. Once back to normal, Download Ccleaner

Hi there,

If you are unable to close the window to Hotmail, press CTRL + ALT + DEL together, then select Task Manager. When the Task Manager opens up there should be an option to "End Task" to the internet browser. That will close it.

If it's not allowing you to do anything when you open Hotmail, try re-installing the internet browser or updating to the latest version.

Fuvirus!!!!! help me provide me with the simplest solution pls.

Since FUvirus is visible in the processes tab of the Task Manager, this can be deleted or disabled manually.

First of, open the Task Manager by right-clicking the TaskBar, click "Processes" tab on the task manager and locate "FUvirus.exe" from the processes lists. Make sure that "Show all Processes from all users" is selected. Once FUvirus.exe is located, right-click and then "End Process Tree" and close the Task Manager.

Now delete the FUvirus from the Registry, follow the instructions:
Open the Windows Registry Editor by clicking on the Windows "Start" button and selecting "Run." Type "regedit" into the box and click "OK." Once the Registry Editor is open, search for the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\FUvirus.exe." Right-click this registry key and select "Delete".

You also need to search the similar file on your computer, this generally happens, this virus replicates and creates several similar files with the similar name randomnly. Search for "FUvirus.exe" and delete whatever you find with that name. Once you are done, restart your computer and check whether it's gone or not. I would also recommend you to run full virus scan, there are several free antivirus which could easily detect and repair FUvirus like, Avira free, Avg free, Avast free, etc... you can download them from their respective websites.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Note: Don't ever install Multiple Antivirus on a system, this may cause system instability or even system failure.

It keeps on saying i have firefox open but i dont

Make sure the downloads is also closed. Then make sure the program is turned off by opening the task manager, you can do that by pressing ctrl+alt+del together, then select task manager if it doesn't open automatically.

In task manager, open the processed tab, Look for firefox, select it and click end process or program. or just press the delete button and it closes it.

ones all firefoxes are closed try again with your program.

use your task manager to see if it is actually doing anything.Right click the task bar and select task manager,,,at the bottom of the task manager it will tell you how much CPU,Memory,and how many processes are running.You can look at the processes and see exactly which ones are using the CPU.Another way to get to the task manager is control+alt+delete click in that order and continue holding down each key untill you have pressed all the keys,then release all three at the same time.

Utilize your task manager, your phone is a mini PC the more programs you have running in the background the more your battery will drain. Every time you open your text messages or surf the net or use a program like photo contacts it runs until you close it. Going back to your home screen does not close applications you have to use your task manager.

Trouble downloading digital photos from a card reader on the Canon Pixma MP600

Ok..well what ya need to do is remember if it ever happens again.. simply open up Task Manager and select the errant program and "End Task" this will shut down most errant programs... now for the files that cannot be deleted... one could change the protected file "Attributes" R,A,S,H. However a much easier soloution is to use a program that will delete anything. Try downloading and using this program from this link ----> Another great one is Zap.exe for "DOS" use..
