Removing viruses


Download the free version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware.

When the program executes, update it, run it and quarantine everything it finds.

Reboot into Safe Mode, usually tapping F8 as the computer starts to boot. Run it again.

Reboot and you are fixed for Malware.

This program is so good I purchased the paid version after using it for years.

You can also go to the Microsoft website and download free Anti-Virus. Windows Defender wil protect you in real time. Download it and run a scan the same way, normal and safe mode.. Let me know how you get on by posting a COMMENT to this post.

Folder automatically becomes application why, can you tell a way to make it back


Hello,
Scan your computer with an anti-virus. It's a virus infection. If you have no anti-virus in your computer then install a free AVG anti-virus. However, it's not an assurance that the virus will get removed. The last resort is to reinstall the operating system and install a premium anti-virus. Protection is better than cure.
Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps!

I have been reading where XP is susceptible to malware and virus because it is not as safe as vista or windows 7. My question is: Dis this computer come with a free upgrade from XP to the nexr os?


I'm sorry but Microsoft does not provide free upgrades for your computer.
However, the security difference between XP and Vista is not far apart. As long as you have a good anti-virus program, you will be all set.
My recommendations, purchase a paid version of anti-virus for stronger protection such as : Prevx 3.0 antivirus
If you prefer a good free anti-virus (not as good as paid versions), use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Yahoo mesenger is not sign in and connectiong with net due to virus problem


I would fix the virus problem first before attempting to log into yahoo messenger. If you have a virus you need to quarantine it. If you have a anti-virus make sure it's up to date. Run the a scan on your pc and do a window's update. The anti-virus should be able to quarantine the virus or give you an option to do so.

McAffe security protection. Compaq Presario XP


Hi,
The Windows Firewall is different from MCafee Security Centre. And if it has a X on it that means Ur MCafee Protection is disabled or May be expired.
To Check that, Just click on the MCafee Icon on the desktop or on the botton right hand corner, and check if its disabled or u needs to renew it.

Thank You,
Your Tech Support,

Vista... I am getting a message that I have a security problem. How do I correct this when Norton Protection Center is not detecting this and is up to date


Security alerts on Windows Vista Monitors the following :

  • Anti -virus status
  • Anti - Malware Status
  • Windows Firewall
  • Automatic Updates
  • User Account Control
  • Automatic updates
Make sure that all of those are up to date and enabled, if one of those on the list is not enabled or up to date, Windows Will give you a warning that there is a security problem on the computer. Go to control panel and go to the security center settings to check :

**Note : If you see a fake alert like the image below, it is an infection and you need to remove it :

Use this tool to remove the infection. Click the link and download malwarebytes anti malware. Install and do a complete scan on the system.
