For a start unplug the power cord and remove the battery for about 60 seconds - download "glary utilities" and run it - malwarebytes [as mentioned by Paul] is worthy information. you can also go to "Trndmicro housecall" and see if that will take care of it. these are all good, safe suggestions.

Download a free virus scanner. A good one is Malwarebytes (HERE), another is AVG (HERE).

Is there a virus that can overide any anti virus product for instance Norton?


the problem with viruses are that they are being produced by hackers at a rate that keeps them ahead of anti-virus products like norton, and the rest
so if norton is not up to date or you have the wrong product ( norton has different levels of protection)it is a possibility that a virus can get through on the back of a e-mail or from face book ( anything that has a link is a potential virus )
from your description, I would be inclined to take it to a second authorized service agent for the laptop and get another opinion as to the problem as I don't think it is a virus but a faulty lap top hard drive ( retail shops seldom have fully qualified technicians for repairs )
remember that the best anti virus protection is you and if you get e-mails or face book messages out of the "blue" regardless of how real it looks , how inviting it is or how demanding it is , always treat it as dangerous and just delete it

I cant install any programs on my lap top keep getting cant find environment option.i cant open any program as the admin section not opening.im new at this and dont know what to do as i try to reinst


Your question leaves quite a lot of possibilities open.
I would google Avira. Go to their official web site. Drill down to utilities and download the avira rescue iso. After downloading, burn the iso to a cd. Then reboot your system to boot from the cd. Avira runs a non windows operating system so windows viruses cannot affect it. Try to have the internet connected by hard wire, not wifi.

His should get rid of nasties that may be your problem. Hope this works.

I cant open any virus scan program and cant open system restore


Hi,
I strongly suggest that you remove Zone Alarm from your computer before you start to install any other virus scan program as its presence prevent other programs to work when you try to install them. For sure I know about it!!!!, make your choice about a good virus program first and stick to it...and install only one, otherwise you are just asking for problems.

To remove Zone alarm completely you have to start you computer in 'Safe Mode' and then go to Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel section to proceed and then reboot.

Thanks,

My hard drive got damged and has bean replaced with a new one, I cant get operating system to work more than 30 days. I have installed vista using a reboot disk that came with lap top. The lap top worked...


I AM CURENTLY AWITING ANOTHER REBOOT DISK AS THE MANUFACTUERS OF THE LAP TOP SAID IT MIGHT NEAD THE FULL INSTAL OF VISTA HOME BASIC AND NOT JUST THE REBBOT PROGRAM VERSION I GOT WITH THE PC. AS THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE START UP SETINGS THAT CONFIGS THE BIOS TO USE VISTA. ( I DIDNT UNDERSTAND THIS TILL I ACTURLY GOT INTO THE BIOS) THE NEW DISK WILL ASLO INCLUDE A NEW PRODUCT KEY THAT DOES NOT NEAD TO BE CONFIRMD VIA INTERNET TO USE AS IT IS JUST THE BASIC VISTA PROGRAM THAT SHOLD ALOW ME TO INSTAL MY UTILITIS AND DRIVERS TO INSTAL THE MODEMS AND OTHER SYSTEM FILES. WHEN I ORIGANLY GOT THE LAP TOP IN 2007 THE REBOOT &RECOVERY DISKS ONLY HAD THE SET UP PROGRAMS THIS ALOWS YOU TO INSTAL VISTA OPERATING SYSTEM BUT NOT ALL THE PROGRAMS WILL WORK AS YOU NEAD TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL SYSTEM SETINGS. SO JUST TO LET OTHERS KNOW IF YOU GOT A LAP TOP OR PC THAT ONLY HAD A REBOOT DISK TO CHEK THAT IT IS THE FULL VERSION ( NEW VISTA RECOVERY 2008 ) AND NOT THE 2007 ONE

I WIL LET YOU KNOW HOW I DID IT IF THIS WORKS

THANKS FOR THE OFFER

Security Alert on Windows


Open your norton 360 and then updates by clicking upates menu. it will directly updates your norton to the symantec websites or you cam manually updates downloading the update here : dhttp://www.symantec.com/avcenter/download/pages/US-N95.html
After updating restart your system to automatically fixed some errors. If the system still same error just click the balloon on the taskbar and select "i have my antivirus (not probably same word)" something like that. if Finally same error encountered uninstall the norton 360 and again reinstall after rebooting and updates. don't worry about the alert, you know already that you are protected.
