Do a system restore. you must have gotten a very special worm or trojan that seems to be acting as a back door. you can also try to start up in safe mode(by pressing f8 during boot) and then delete it.(it may disable the virus) also, try unplugging your ethernet cord from your computer.(may be blue or black, plug on end looks like a very big telephone plug)

I cant get locked in to www.hotmail.com since updating my AVG anti virus protection


Windows Live Hotmail normally loads without issue, but several problems on your computer can restrict access to your account.
Firewalls with high security sensitivity, malicious spyware and disabled cookies are three of the main reasons for blocked Hotmail accounts.
Hotmail also does not load if Microsoft blocks your account for spamlike activity.
This can happen if your account was compromised, or hacked.
Cookies

If cookies are disabled on your Internet browser, Hotmail cannot load.
Cookies store specific data about you that you have provided to a website, such as your name or address.
To turn on cookies in Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and "Internet Options."
Click "Privacy." Move the slider from "Block All Cookies" to "Medium."
This security level blocks advertising cookies but enables the cookies that allow you to access your Hotmail.
To enable Firefox cookies, click "Tools," "Options" and "Privacy."
Click "Use Custom Settings for History."
Enable cookies to view your Hotmail messages.

Check for Spyware
Spyware is a type of malicious software that steals your personal information or disables functions of your computer.
Spyware on your computer may block access to your Hotmail.
Run an anti-spyware or anti-virus program, such as Norton, AVG or Avira.
If you have a spyware or virus infection on your computer, these programs find and destroy it.
Some malware affects the "hosts" file on your computer.
Find and open the file "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts" in Notepad.
Look for "passport.com" or "hotmail.com."

If you see either, malware has possibly infected the file.
Change the IP address affiliated with the file name to eliminate the problem.


Blocked Accounts Hotmail blocks accounts when it detects spamlike behavior from them.
For example, if hundreds of advertisements are sent from your account in just a few minutes, Hotmail views this as spam and blocks your account.
If you are not sending spamlike emails or instant messages, someone may have guessed your password and accessed your account.
If Hotmail blocks your account, you have the option to enter your cellphone number as verification that you are the true account owner.
When you enter your number, Microsoft sends a text message to that phone number.
Retrieve the verification code from the text message and enter it on the Sign-In page.
When you access your account, change the password immediately.

Other Options

Your firewall may block access to Hotmail or cause emails to not load.
To determine if the firewall is the problem, disable it temporarily and try to access your mail. Firewall settings are sometimes set too high.
Lower the security sensitivity before you attempt to log in to Hotmail.
If you notice other websites not loading, reset your router.
This solves many connection issues.
Check the clock on your computer.
An inaccurate clock may block you from loading Hotmail.
To ensure your clock's accuracy, click the clock in the bottom-right corner of the task bar.
Click "Date and Time" and "Internet Time."
Click "Change Settings."
Click the check box next to "Synchronize With an Internet Time Server."
Click "OK."

Why and what is my PC continuously downloading from Internet eventhough I am not myself downloading anything. Kindly help. Thanks


Probably your PC is doing one of two things - it is either updating software, windows updates or antivirus or firewall updates, these can be turned off in the options menus for programs that are running, OR , it has a virus or spyware and those programs are updating and sending data back to their makers. Windows update is usually automatically enabled, to turn it off use control panel, administrative options, services.

I use xp.. i download a file in internet after that ,everytime i start the computer theres always a virus(i have avira) but cant remove it..


Keep updating avira always and install spyware terminator to check is it spyware or not because avira free version only for virus but there is something like spyware, adaware, malware etc. Just try spyware terminator, update avira and if possible install Comodo firewall and block the unknown applications connecting to internet.
