I would completely un-install it and then reboot and see if it still does it, if not, try re-installing and give it another shot.

If it continues then get rid of it, its **** software.

When un-installing make sure you set a restore point and back up your files and scan for viruses as well before re-installing.

Good luck

Security is poor when scan is done


I don't know what Office Depot Support is, but you might have downloaded and installed a trojan anti-virus program that sends false positives. Meanwhile, it could be scanning your computer for personal information. You should NEVER click on the popups that say things like, "Your computer is infected! Click here to clean it." These are trojans.
Fortunately, there are several really good anti-virus programs out there that are free or low cost.
The following is what I would do if you showed up at my house with your computer:

1. go to Download.com and search for Avast Antivirus. It is free and trusted. Download and install. Update virus definitions.

2. Now download Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Install and update definitions.
2. Go to Control Panel - System Security - Action Center and under the "Virus protection" heading click on the blue letters that say "Show me the antivirus programs on this computer." You should see the Avast and Malwarebytes icons as well as Microsoft Security Essentials on. If they are off, turn them on.
3. Restart your machine and have a finger right above the F8 key. BEFORE it gets to the Windows start screen start tapping on the F8 key and your computer will start in the Advanced Boot Options. If you get the Windows screen you will have to restart again.
4. At the Advanced Boot Options screen arrow down until you get to the Safe Mode option. Click on that. Do not choose the one with the networking choice. You are going to clean your computer and you want to do it without anybody potentially connected to it.
5. When it starts up the screen will look a bit weird. This is okay. Find Avast under your All Programs (the Windows button) and open it. Run a full scan.
6. Now do the same with Malwarebytes. These can run at the same time, so don't worry.
7. Go watch some TV or, better yet, read a book. This will take some time.
8. When the scans are all finished they will let you know if you have any bad guys on your computer. Avast and Malwarebytes will delete them for you if you want (you do).
9. Just to be sure, I restart, open in Safe Mode again, and do it all over again.
10. Start normally and let them run in the background all the time. You can pay for the pro versions (worth it) or keep the free, but along with Microsoft Security Essentials (that should be installed automatically) all running together you should have no more trouble. Of course that depends on your browsing habits. I don't let my teenage son on my computer and I have no problems.

Finally, if you did download a trojan then you will have to get rid of it.
Revo Uninstaller is really good. You can get it at Download.com also.
By the way, you don't necessarily have to use Download.com. Sourceforge, Filehippo, and MajorGeeks are just as good.

Good luck!

Virus


Personal Security is very wisely denominated rogue antispyware. Most users figure out what sort of software they have and ask how to remove Personal Antivirus
To remove Personal Security spyware you must block Personal Security sites, stop and delete processes, unregister DLL files, search and delete all other Personal Security files and registry utility. Other software removal method is to remove Personal Security by using "Add or Remove Programs" service. However there may be hidden Personal Security files, running processes and registries in your computer, so Personal Security may recreate all other files after reboot.

A security icon that wont let me do any thing but


Hi, Michelle.
Need a little more info...was this a "free" anti-virus program offering to scan pc/laptop free? for viruses?You didn't give any personal info out to it, did you?
Can you get to "safe mode"? If so, in safe mode go to control panel; add/remove programs;uninstall this program...if it won't let you, try doing a restore to a previous date prior to when you started getting this.
There is a "anti-virus" program that acts like a virus to get you to buy their removal tool.

Emachine T6216 Automatically Shuts down


Hi MIchael,

Before I start replacing hardware, I would boot to safemode, and let it run that way to see of the problem repeats. In Safemode, a lot of drivers and software that may be causing the problem won't start up.

As soon as your start your machine, tap the F8 key about twice a second. This should bring up a screen with several options. Select Safemode. You will get some warning, so just click yes on those. Your screen will look really strange, since your video drivers won't install. Let it run like that for a few hours. BTW, you won't have internet.
If that still reboots, or shuts down, chance are good it a hardware issue. Might be your Heatsink on the cpu is too dirty to cool, but the techs you took it to should have cleaned that.
Get back with us, and post how that works please.
You can also right click on My Computer>Manage>Event Viewer and look thru the different catagories. Look for issues with red marks on them. To read them, just click on them. This may give you idea what is failing.
A issues that is random is hard to troubleshoot.
Good Luck!
