Preventive Virus Removal Procedures


There may be some of you that have never thought about the power of User Accounts. User Accounts is a Graphic User Interface that has options to create new user accounts. Even though you are the only person using your computer, this is a good feature to setup.
The reason you want to setup this feature is because it can be used to backdoor a virus that has taken control of your account.
Here are the steps to setup User Accounts:
Click the Windows Logo
Click Control Panel
Navigate and click on User Accounts
Click on Turn User Account On and Off
Click Continue
Check Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer
Press Ok
Click Manage Another Account
Click Continue
Click Create a New Account
In the box type Administrator for a user name.
Select Administrator as the account type
Click Create Account
Click on the Administrator account
Click Change the Password
Create a password with one capital letter, one number, one special character and at least 7 characters long.
Keep that password in a safe place.

Reasoning: Each person who logs on to a computer has a profile, this profile is associated to that persons account. A profile is generically in a path like c:/users/ACCOUNT NAME/documents and settings/my documents. If a virus takes over this profile you will not be able to use Internet Explorer or any program like a virus remover application.
This is why you create another account.
When you logon with your Administrator account you will be able to access Internet Explorer and the virus remover software.
MalwareBytes has been proven to be an affective virus removal application, that is currently free as well.

Another Tip for Removing Flash Drive Viruses


Hi PC users, here is a simple tip on how to remove viruses from flash drives, you only need to find a PC with Windows ME installed as the operating system. Plug the flash drive in and set the folder options to view all files. Manually Delete all viruses files, usually .INFs and folder looking .EXE files. (just delete questionable files there which you don't need and have not created). I know its rather hard to find ME machines these days, but if you do find one. Take the advantage and remove those viruses on your flash drives. Just make sure the ME machine is virus free.

Removing virus from "System Volume Information" folder


Quite often antivirus scanner locate a virus, quarantine it than you find that the next day it's back again. What happened is that windows have included the viruses into the system restore point when it creates one. The folder that contains the restore point information is the "System volume information" folder this is a protected folder.

You may be able to see the folder at all. There are two methods of ridding yourself of the virus if the scanner is incapable. Both require you to be logged on as an administrator.
First method:

The first method is to remove all the restore points. Unless you are 100% sure you will never need to restore to a previous point then by all means do it.

1. Right click on my computer then click on system restore tab. Place a check mark alongside "Turnoff system restore on all drives" click Ok and close the dialog boxes.
2. Run your antivirus scanner again to make sure the virus is gone. You can choose to perform the task you can do only in the folder where virus is detected. In this case “System Volume information” Folder.
3. Once your are happy return to System Restore tab and uncheck the mark while you are there highlighted the drives, click Settings and slide the slider to the left to around 2%. This will release a significant amount of hard drive space. Windows default setting is to reserve 12% and on a 150 gig drive that can total 18 gigabytes. 2% will still give you enough room for an ample number of restore points. Click OK and close the dialog boxes.
4. Next, Create a new restore point. With any name you want.

I have 8 programs that won't work and say "they do not have a program association with it for performing this action". They say to "create an association in the folder options control panel".


Windows uses "associations" as part of its object-oriented interface.

For example, after installing Adobe Reader, there will be an "association" created, such that everytime that you double-click on a 'PDF' file, then Windows will launch Adobe Reader.

Similarly, '.doc' files will be associated with Microsoft Word,
and '.xls' files will be associated with Microsoft Excel.

> create an association in the folder options control panel

That's the correct way to "add" or "delete" a specific association.

It's strange that you don't have an association already defined;
it could be the result of a computer-virus, namely, one that has deleted that association.

Trying to install avg free, but get 1 error. Action failed for file avgmfx86 sys starting service Error number 0x80070002


You may be infected by the virus Autoit.exe. Have your computer scanned with another antivirus before installing AVG. AVG Free (updated that is) is effective if already installed before the virus attacked. You may download and try a trojan cleaner dedicated for this purpose here.
