sounds like your computer is infected with a malware or virus/spyware. aside from trying to use anti virus or malware programs, best thing to do is to completely reformat the hard drive and reinstall your OS and all your programs. for important data, create an backup and fully scan the backup for virus and malwares before you attempt to restore it back to your computer after reinstalling everything. feel free to let us know how it goes and if the info is useful with your rating

COMPUTER IS COMPLETELY RUNNING SLOW -ALL PROGRAMS TAKING


Hi,
Try opening Windows task manager, terminating some programs and see if the computer runs quicker. If not then make sure you have an up to date anti-virus. Personally I would recommend Norton Anti-Virus, the full version that you pay for or any other full version anti-virus will do. Scan your computer for viruses and then have the anti-virus remove them. The problem may also be that the Operating system (OS) you are running may be using up a lot of computer resources and you may have to switch to a less demanding OS or upgrade your computer to the recommened specifications of the OS.
Hope this helps

Antivirus protection scan


It *WILL* install a virus if you allow it to. Sometimes these programs make it very difficult to NOT download their ****. It's telling you to download something in the hopes that you WILL accept the download.

***Do NOT download anything that you do not WANT to download. ***

Anytime you get to a website like this, make a note of it to never visit it again. Anytime you want to download something, make SURE it is what you want and nothing more. At the end of the day, it is NOT worth risk. The wrong decision could ruin your computer, lose your files, misdirect your websearches, slow your internet connection, among some of the results. The internet can be a very dangerous place.

Better to err on the side of caution.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Do an antivirus update and run a scan at LEAST once a week. Even the safest websites can put **** on your computer.

Can go on youtube?


This issue occurs if the Computer is infected by any virus. Scan the Computer by any good Anti-virus/Internet Security application (Kaspersky or ESET or Norton) to detect and remove the virus.

If you very familiar with the Computer then:

Open the Task Manager, close (End Task) any unknown/malicious process running in background under your User Account (like svchost running under your User account only not under SYSTEM or LOCAL SERVICE).

Then try opening YouTube.

I suggest that you better scan your full Computer with any good and updated AntiVirus application to resolve the issue.

If the AntiVirus application is unable to detect any virus in the Computer then try opening the YouTube in the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING to determine whether the Computer is infected with the virus.

If you are able to open the YouTube in the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING then the Computer is definitely infected with virus then reinstalling the Operating System is the only option to remove the virus from the Computer to resolve the issue.

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)

Computer is 3 weeks old.DLL module missing.cant open mirco works.did scan on computer,3000 errors were found


suggest downloading avast anti virus home addition from the avast website here , the home adition is free and auto updates, free to register too. after you have installed and done a pc scan with avast anti virus, may i suggest that you type in the specific DLL file you want from the google search engine. many sites sould have one for you to download. please get the anti virus first as your pc can get infected as soon as you turn one on. 'ad aware', ccleaner are two other programs i personally use and wouldnt be without either. good luck :)

Do you have a virus scan and a spyware removal program. Before you open the browser up run each of the programs to make sure there is no virus present or spyware problems. After running them try shutting down and restarting. Run updates for the 2 programs. Then try browsing again.

 

Hope this helps you
