Hi, i have a samsung notebook, recently it has started to go into a blank, white screen, sometimes it stays like that sometimes it goes on and off. i've tried to install a new anti virus software but...


I would reboot into safe mode, then run your anti-virus/anti-spyware software again, then try rebooting in regular mode and see if that fixes the issue. It sounds like it could be a hardware issue, though... possibly a loose connection or faulty screen, if the virus/spyware search doesn't pan out.

Sounds like you have spyware or a trojan rather than a virus.You can try a restore point if there is one or you can try SPYBOT to see if it can delete it effectively.Webroot is probably causing the freezing from not being able to shut the program down first then eliminating it or its not made to really get rid of spyware/trojans/worms etc at all.There are very few Anti-Virus-Spyware removers that actually work as well as they are advertised.

PROBLEMS WITH ACER 5610z


Sounds like a virus or software. Do the following. Please rate this as fixed if it helps you.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me as fixed if it helps.

IBM Laptop/PC Best Trouble shooting software


Your question is general. What are you troubleshooting? There's no such software that when you run it, it will fix your whole PC/Laptop. It still depends on what the problem is, specifically. The best way to fix computers when it comes to software problems is uninstalling and reinstalling the specific program that creates the problem, or better yet, re-format your whole computer and just reinstall your Operating System. Some problems are caused by virus which can be solved by spywares and anti-virus softwares, really depends.
