Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My computer was infected by Antivirus Soft last Sunday. I have Webroot and Malewarebytes wich neither of them stopped it. The virus was preventing me from downloading anything, so I put the rkill on my flash drive and transferred it onto my comp. After running rkill several times it finially stopped the virus. After that I ran a sweep on Webroot, it detected it, then quarantined it. I thought all was well, then I turned my comp back on, and the virus was there AGAIN....this process has repeated itself over 5 times. I don't know what else to do. I have tried also running a sweep through malwarebytes, it detects it then deletes it...but again when I turn the comp back on the virus is still there...HELP!

I'm afraid you need to do an Uninstall and re-install of your OS for it looks like the virus infection already spreads.

After installing webroot comp applications does not work


There might be a conflict

Background b> Many personal computers connected to the Internet will more than likely eventually become infected with spyware, malware, viruses or Trojan horses. Such programs spread via spam, bad links or freeware. Once they invade your computer, they can do anything they want, such as disabling your antivirus software, tracking your keystrokes and deleting files. b> About McAfee and Webroot b> McAfee and Webroot are some of the most popular computer security programs. Both companies have features on their programs, such as firewalls and live scans, which prevent future infections. Computer owners, however, should never run two programs since they cause each other to crash. Only one antivirus program should be on a computer at once. b> Spyware Prevention b> Along with using computer security programs, computer owners can prevent infections by browsing the Internet with caution. They should avoid file sharing and ad-laden websites since such websites often harbor spyware. They should also avoid downloading anything without researching it beforehand use as safe a Web browser as possible. If you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager under processes and the applications tabs you will see what is running and ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now or even uninstall it or disable it Hope this helps

Webroot and spysweeper 2011 no longer puts cookies into quarentee section


I have the same problem: Webroot 2011 no longer detects and quarantines cookies. If you go to the Webroot Support page and type "no longer quarantine cookies", it offers the generated issue: "You want to know why Internet Explorer cookies are not detected in a scan"; to which it offers the following answer: "A recent Microsoft security update (KB 2559049) [...check your Windows updater, I got this security update on my computer on August 10th...] prevents Webroot security programs from identifying spy cookies on systems where the update is applied. Although these cookies cannot be detected, your core antivirus and anti-spyware protection is not compromised. Viruses and spyware are still blocked. Webroot engineers are actively investigating options to restore spy cookie detections and any solutions will be provided in an upcoming release." (This statement is not dated; I am looking at it now, August 28th, 2011, on their Webroot Support page.) I have Windows Vista operating system and Webroot 2011 version 7.0.11.21. My Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper hasn't swept up anything in scans in the last couple of weeks, but it did block an internet site last night; so I think it's still working. Hope this helps!

I have a alphaAV virus my webroot antivirus did not stop it how do i git rid of it ?


You should update your anti-virus regularly.If your anti-virus can still update it's database then it can help solve the problem but if it can't update anymore then try to system restore your computer from the time where it is not infected and update your anti-virus immediately.

Antivirus suddenly stopped Working


Download Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, Ad-aware and Spybot, and run them all (one after another, not all at the same time) to see if you're not infected by some spyware.

Also run some anti-virus, like Avira - or even the online Trendmicro housecall (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/) to check for viruses.

And do that if possible disconnected from the internet.

If nothing is picked up by those programs, then you can try a system restore to a point where everything worked. Be sure to backup your data first, since you can loose some data with System Restore.
