You will need to use another computer and download Kaspersky rescue disk. After downloading the disk image burn it to a cd and boot the machine with this disk. Run the rescue disk and it will detect the infected files. When the program if finished select remove all infected files and reboot your computer. You also need to either install a good antivirus program or update the one you have to protect against this type of infection. The Kaspersky rescue disk can be downloaded from their site here:

How do I remove unwanted pop ups?


Internet pop-ups can be an annoyance. These windows are usually associated with different forms of advertisements and at times can include viruses that can infect the computer. Pop-ups do not have to be a part of computer use if the user does not desire this distraction. There are ways to stop pop-ups and prevent them from appearing unless desired. Pop-up blocker allows the user to block these items and select which items to allow.

Open Internet Explorer. Click "Tools" from the menu bar. Tools can be found on the bar that lists "File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help" directly beneath the address bar. Click "Internet Options" from the "Tools" menu. Click the "Privacy" tab in the "Internet Options" box. Click to check the box that says "Turn on pop-up blocker" in the "Pop-up Blocker" section of the menu. Click "Apply" to save changes. Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" box. The computer will now block all pop-ups from websites. If downloading items from the Web, the computer will ask whether you would like to allow these items to be opened. Hope this helps.

How do i remove security sheild ?


# It is possible that the infection you are trying to remove will not allow you to download files on the infected computer. If this is the case, then you will need to download the files requested in this guide on another computer and then transfer them to the infected computer. You can transfer the files via a CD/DVD, external drive, or USB flash drive.

# Before we can do anything we must first end the processes that belong to Security Shield so that it does not interfere with the cleaning procedure. To do this, please download RKill to your desktop from the following link.

RKill Download Link - (Download page will open in a new tab or browser window.)

When at the download page, click on the Download Now button labeled iExplore.exe download link. When you are prompted where to save it, please save it on your desktop.

# Once it is downloaded, double-click on the iExplore.exe icon in order to automatically attempt to stop any processes associated with Security Shield and other Rogue programs. Please be patient while the program looks for various malware programs and ends them. When it has finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step. If you get a message that RKill is an infection, do not be concerned. This message is just a fake warning given by Security Shield when it terminates programs that may potentially remove it. If you run into these infections warnings that close RKill, a trick is to leave the warning on the screen and then run RKill again. By not closing the warning, this typically will allow you to bypass the malware trying to protect itself so that rkill can terminate Security Shield . So, please try running RKill until the malware is no longer running. You will then be able to proceed with the rest of the guide. If you continue having problems running RKill, you can download the other renamed versions of RKill from the rkill download page. All of the files are renamed copies of RKill, which you can try instead. Please note that the download page will open in a new browser window or tab.

Do not reboot your computer after running RKill as the malware programs will start again.

# Now you should download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, or MBAM, from the following location and save it to your desktop:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Download Link (Download page will open in a new window)


# Once downloaded, close all programs and Windows on your computer, including this one.

# Double-click on the icon on your desktop named mbam-setup.exe. This will start the installation of MBAM onto your computer.

# When the installation begins, keep following the prompts in order to continue with the installation process. Do not make any changes to default settings and when the program has finished installing, make sure you leave both the Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware checked. Then click on the Finish button. If MalwareBytes' prompts you to reboot, please do not do so.

# MBAM will now automatically start and you will see a message stating that you should update the program before performing a scan. As MBAM will automatically update itself after the install, you can press the OK button to close that box

# On the Scanner tab, make sure the the Perform full scan option is selected and then click on the Scan button to start scanning your computer for Security Shield related files.

# MBAM will now start scanning your computer for malware. This process can take quite a while, so we suggest you go and do something else and periodically check on the status of the scan.

# You will now be back at the main Scanner screen. At this point you should click on the Show Results button.

# You should now click on the Remove Selected button to remove all the listed malware. MBAM will now delete all of the files and registry keys and add them to the programs quarantine. When removing the files, MBAM may require a reboot in order to remove some of them. If it displays a message stating that it needs to reboot, please allow it to do so. Once your computer has rebooted, and you are logged in, please continue with the rest of the steps.

# When MBAM has finished removing the malware, it will open the scan log and display it in Notepad. Review the log as desired, and then close the Notepad window.

# You can now exit the MBAM program.

I think I have a virus or something preventing my computer from connecting to any site or link with Microsoft. I need to update service paks and was able to download them from cnet but cannot run the...


Dear Sir
This is indeed a virus program specifically written to block the browsing to certain sites.

I would like to mention here that any online transaction, made on other than direct bank sites are not advisable as the system files are infected.
Please see the address bar when you type the URL of your bank site, you will be able to see "https://www.banksite.com " rather than " http://www.banksite.com". Please make sure that you access your bank site if you see https in the beginning of the site rather than http. You should also check verisign symbol and lock symbol prior to proceeding any money related transaction. Above checks will ensure you that your transactions are safe.

Now we can discuss the virus problem.
Restart the computer and press F2/F8 to boot in to the safe made. Login as administrator with the passsword which you should be knowing. If you have left your password filed blank. Please change the password by
clicking: start> control panel> user account> administrator> create new password:
enter the desired password twice as asked and save and exit. Make sure that your administrator account should have some password.
Connect to the internet. Download Mozilla web browser-- Firefox Setup3.6.12 free from below link:: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html
Open the location where you have saved the executable file named Firefox Setup3.6.12 Install it by double clicking on the file and it will create a desktop short cut. alternatively you can open it by clicking start>all programs>Mozilla Firefox > Mozilla Firefox
Now type http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ in to the address bar of the Mozilla Browser. Download the microsoft security essential and install it.
You will see the Microsoft Security Essential symbol in the tray of your system (Bottom right side of the screen a small hut ), Now Double click on it and select "update" tab
Now click on " Update" Button and let the Microsoft Security Essential update the virus database. After update, Select to the "Home" tab on the Microsoft Security Essential Main window, at the right side of the window, select " full " as a "scan option" and click on scan now.
The Microsoft Security Essential not only scan the system but also report and replace the infected system files which have gone bad due to viruses. In your case, IE browser setting are now altered by the virus and hence you are not able to access the Microsoft Sites . By doing above steps, you will create an alternate internet channel through Mozilla Browser and whose settings are at default.
I hope by doing this, it is possible to recover the settings without much efforts. After full system scan and fixing of the bugs, restart the computer and login normal way. To update the service pack do the following:
Connect to the internet click start>control panel>Windows update> and select update now
you will be able to update the OS.

Please tell if you need further support
Regards.

Kinds of computer virus


from your question, what are the kinds of computer viruses, here is the detailed explanation:

Computermag-glass_10x10.gif viruses are generally defined as a program inputted into a computer that allows replication of the program installed. As it replicates, the program intentionally infects the computer, typically without even the user knowing about the damage being done. A virus, unlike worms or Trojan horses, needs an aid to transfer them to computers. Viruses usually take a large amount of computer memory, resulting into system crashes. Viruses are categorized to several parts based on its features.
Macro Viruses A macro virus, often scripted into common application programs such as Word or Excel, is spread by infecting documents. Macro viruses are known to be platform-independent since the virus itself are written in language of the application and not the messagebox_info.png operating system. When the application is running, this allows the macro virus to spread amongst the operating systemsmag-glass_10x10.gif. There are thousands of macro viruses that exists, and each are considered major threats. Examples of these viruses are: Melissa.A and Bablas. pc.
Network Viruses Network viruses rapidly spreads through a Local Network Area ( messagebox_info.png LAN), and sometimes throughout the internet. Generally, network viruses multiply through shared resources, i.e., shared drives and folders. When the virus infects a computer, it searches through the network to attack its new potential prey. When the virus finishes infecting that computer, it moves on to the next and the cycle repeats itself. The most dangerous network viruses are Nimda and SQLSlammer.
Logic Bombs The messagebox_info.png logic bomb virus is a piece of code that are inputted into a software system. When a certain and specific condition is met, such as clicking on an internet browser or opening a particular file, the logic bomb virus is set off. Many programmers set the malicious virus off during days such as April Fools Day or Friday the 13th. When the virus is activated, then various activities will take place. For example, files are permanently deleted.
Companion Viruses Companion viruses takes advantage of MS- messagebox_info.png DOS. This virus creates a new file with typically the messagebox_info.png .COM extensions, but sometimes the .EXD extension as well. When a user manually types in a program they desire without adding .EXE or any other specific extention, DOS will make the assumption that the user want the file with the extension that comes first in alphabetical order, and thus running the virus. The companion virus is rare among Windows XP computers as this particular operating system does not use the MS-DOS.
Boot Sector Viruses messagebox_info.png Boot sector viruses generally hide in the boot sector, either in the bootable disk or the messagebox_info.png hard drive. Unlike most viruses, this virus does not harm the files in the hard disk, but harm the hard disk itself. Boot sector viruses are uncommon at this day and age because these viruses are spread rapidly by floppy disks and not on CD-ROMs.
Multipartite Viruses Multipartite viruses are spreaded through infected media and usually hides in the memory. Gradually, the virus moves to the boot sector of the hard drive and infects executable files on the hard drive and later across the computer system

This could be an indication of a malware infection.
Please begin by running disk cleanup (click here) or download and run ATF cleaner from here to clear your temp files and browser cache.
Try IE and if no joy, go to www.malwarebytes.com and download their free anti-malware software. You may have to download this to another internet connected computer and burn it to cd if your system won't let you go there, but install it, update it if possible, and run a quick scan of your computer. Fix any problems it detects. Then without rebooting go to windows update and download and install all updates available for your system. Reboot and run an in-depth Antivirus scan of your system to check for further problems.
If you still have problems with IE at that point, go to this link and work through the troubleshooter.
Report back and let us know how it goes, and whether you have any further difficulties.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
