Depending on what anti-virus software you have, open it (Ex. Mcafee, Norton, AVG or ?) choose to run now (always choose the "c" drive)..........let it run its course (if it catches any thing) it will prompt you to delete or quarantine? your choice

I have a Kyocera KM-2560 printer/scanner/copier that is accessible via LAN for a number of computers. When the vendor intially installed the system he assigned "scanning" to only one computer...


It sounds like the vendor set up only one scan destination. That destination is accessed by other computers on the network. You would have to have to create a different scan destination for each computer if you want to be able to scan documents while that computer is off. This is a link to instructions for doing that.

Got a virus - cleaned it out- computer would then only connect to internet in safe mode with networking but now won't connect at all


hi, try this

The suspicion of possible errors in system files in Windows, it may be worth a try to run the "hidden" program that comes with just Windows.
System allows an administrator to scan all protected files to verify their versions.

If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version from the cache folder (% Systemroot% \ System32 \ Dllcache) or source files for Windows installation, and replaces the incorrect file.

System File Checker also checks and filling up the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker.

If the cache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use the sfc / scannow, sfc / Scanonce or sfc / scan boot to repair its contents.

To use SFC:

1) Press Start
2) Select Run ...
3) Enter: sfc / scannow and press OK
(Remember that there should be space after sfc)



More info about the System
Sfc [/ Scannow] [/ Scanonce] [/ Scan Boot] [/ Revert] [/ Purgecache] [/ Cache Size = x]

• / Scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation.

• / Scanonce: Scans all protected system files once when you start the computer. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation when you start the computer. SfcScan DWORD value 2 in the following registry key when you run this command:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

• / Boot Scan: Scans all protected system files every time you start your computer. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation every time you start your computer. SfcScan DWORD value of 1 in the following registry key when you run this command:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

• / Revert: Restoring default scan setting (not scan protected files when you start your computer). The default cache size is not reset when you run this command. This command is equivalent to the / Enable switch in Windows 2000.

• / Purgecache: Purges the file cache and scans all protected system files immediately. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation.

• / Cache Size = x: Sets the file cache size to x megabytes (MB). Default cache size is 50 MB. This command requires that you restart the computer, and then run the command / purgecache to adjust the size of the cache on the disk. This command provides SfcQuota DWORD value of x in the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

Have a virus on my toshiba laptop, can i resolve this by restoring the factory settings?


Hi Andrewfairwa.

Yes, you may remove all the security threats in the Computer by restoring it to the Factory settings.

But, restoring the Computer to the Factory settings will also delete the Data in the Hard Drive.

Hence, you may try performing a Complete System Scan to check for any Virus or security threats.

You may perform the Complete System Scan by using the Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer.

If you have not installed any Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer, you may perform a online System Scan.

Let me provide the detailed steps to perform the online System Scan.

You may perform the free Online Scan by visiting the below link:

http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html

Please open the above link and click on "Start Scanner".

This will start the free Online System Scan.

Once the Scan is complete, check if the Virus or any security threats are removed from the Computer.

If there are still any threats, then you may backup all the important Data and restore the Computer to the Factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

I have a virus and stmanteec antivirus notification keeps popping up on my screen: What can I do??? Help Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan Event: Threat Found! Threat: Trojan.Zlob File: ...


If you have a virus you can not delete or if your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
**To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
  1. If your computer is on, shut it down
  2. Power on your computer
  3. Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
  4. In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
  5. Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
  6. Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
  7. When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
  8. Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
  9. Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program’s normal steps to run a virus scan
  10. After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
  11. Close out of your anti virus software
  12. Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)

PC Tools stops at DEEP SCAN When I'm trying to scan My computer system.


This is PC Tools Spyware Doctor program? Try booting the computer in Safe Mode (press F8 during the boot process before you see the Windows logo and select Safe Mode from this list of options) and then running the scan. With heavier infections many cleaning tools can be blocked or have inconsistent performance.

Scan image is discolored


The scanning carriage in the scanner may have lost the home position and needs to be reset. 1. Shut the computer system off, and then disconnect the scanner from the power source. Leave the scanner disconnected from the power source for at least one full minute. 2. Reconnect the power, and then restart the computer system. 3. When the computer system has fully restarted, try scanning again. Ensure the issue is not caused by Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) EMI can cause similar Image Quality issues. Verify that the scanner is not in the direct vicinity of the computer monitor and/or speakers. If so, relocate the scanner at least three feet away from the monitor and/or speakers and retry the scan. good luck..
