I order items for use with a non-profit organization and have a 501C-3 tax exempt number. How can I utilize non-profit eligibility and save on tax payment


You file a request with your state of registration/incorporation to get a sales tax exemption certificate. After you receive that, submit a photocopy to the vendors to have on their file. This allows them to not charge the sales tax. Some vendors will accept ust the certificate number and expiration date, others will require you to send them a photocopy. If you paid sales tax (after the certificate was issued) you can file a request for refund from the vendor by providing proof of excemption. Your state issued certificate is valid even if you are ordering from vendors outside your own state.

Antivirus 2009 and 2010 Scam


If you have seen any of these popups shown below, on your computer, you have been infected with a fake antivirus. Not only is it fake, but it tries to force you to buy it, which is illegal and is considered fraud by authorities.
This program and it's many variants, take over administrative control of your PC, disable Task Manager, and regedit as well as replacing your desktop wallpaper with their fake warning. Well, it WOULD be fake, if this program weren't a Virus program all by itself.


Quoted From Bleepingcomputer.com


What this programs does:
Antivirus 2009 is a new rogue (Fake) anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus 2008 and Doctor Antivirus . Antivirus 2009 is installed and advertised through the use of misleading web sites that attempt to make you think your computer is infected with a variety of malware. Once installed, Antivirus 2009 will scan your computer and list a variety of fake infections that can't be removed unless you first purchase the software. These fake infections are only being shown to scare you into purchasing the malware.
When Antivirus 2009 is installed, a Internet Explorer browser helper object is also installed that displays fake messages when using Internet Explorer. These messages range from a line at the top of the browser stating an infection was found to adding a box to the Google homepage stating Google detected that your computer was infected. These tactics are just two more methods where Antivirus 2009 uses false information to scare you into purchasing their software.

Antivirus 2010 looks almost the same as 2008 and 2009.

Antivirus 2010
is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus 2008 and Antivirus 2009. Like its previous incarnations, Antivirus 2010 is distributed through the use of advertisements on the Web pretending to be online anti-malware scanners. These advertisements pretend to scan your computer and then state that your computer is infected and that you should download and install Antivirus 2010 to remove these infections. These rogues are also known to be advertised and installed through Trojans that display fake security alerts in your Windows taskbar stating you are infected. Once you click on one of these alerts, it will bring you to the download page for Antivirus 2010, or even download and install it without your permission.
Once Antivirus 2010 is installed on your computer, it will be automatically configured to run when you logon to Windows. This is done by adding a startup that launches the C:WindowsSystem32wingamma.exe executable. This executable will then launch the AV2010.exe and the fake Windows Security Center. Once running, it will scan your computer and list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the software. This infection will also randomly display fake security alerts on your computer stating that you are infected or have some sort of security risk. If you click on these alerts, it will prompt you to purchase the software. These fake alerts, along with a fake Windows Security Center that advertises Antivirus 2010, are used to further scare you into thinking you are infected so you will purchase this malware.
Another new addition to these types of rogues, is the creation of a fake Blue Screen of Death. At random intervals, Antivirus 2010 will create what appears to be a Windows crash, but in reality is just a hoax. These fake crashes are used to further scare you into purchasing this malware. If you receive this crash, you can simply reboot your computer , or try pressing Alt-Tab or Control-Alt-Delete to get out of it. The text of the crash is:
***STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000, 0xF73120AE, 0xC0000008, 0xC000000)
A spyware application has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
SPYWARE.MONSTER.FX_WILD_0x0000000
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Click to make sure your antivirus software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your software manufacturer for any antivirus updates you might need.
Windows detected unregistered version of Antivirus 2010 protection on your computer. If problem continue, please activate your antivirus software to prevent computer damage and data loss.
*** SRV.sys - Address F73120AE base at C0000000, DateStamp 36b072a3


END QUOTE HERE:


As you can see, all of this looks so very legitimate, as well it should, since THESE particular crooks have taken malware to a whole new level.
Yes, they will get caught, they always do.


The real difference here is that these particular scammers have decided to strong arm you much like a mobster demanding protection money, so the crime as well as the consequences will be much more severe.


The GOOD news though, is that even if you are infected at this very moment with this nasty program, you will be able to remove it before you reboot your PC and come back to Fixya!


Download and run, Malwarebytes Anti malware.
Don't forget to update it first though, just in case the fake antivirus has changed its nature to evade detection.
So far, this is the only program I have found to eliminate this problem, but I'm pretty sure others will follow the same path.


Follow up with Avast Antivirus, if you want something stronger than what others pay hard cash for at the store. Dont forget to uninstall your current Antivirus first, after all, it did fail to kill Antivirus 2010 didn't it?




Happy Hunting!

A registered version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will display partial licensing information. An unregistered version will show a "Purchase" button and a "Register" or "Activate" button near the bottom of the product. To register and unlock the PRO features successfully: For activation you need internet connection. Locate the ID and Key in the box-CD-card or from your order confirmation email. Click on the "Register" or "Activate" button. Write EXACTLY like they are (or Copy and paste from email) the product ID and Key into the text fields. Click on the "Register" or "Activate" button under the text fields. Available check boxes: Enable protection module: This option will enable the realtime Protection Module immediately upon successful registration. Keep protection up-to-date automatically: This option will automatically create a daily update entry in the Scheduler to keep protection up-to-date upon successful registration.

My acer x3400 is 1 month old and it keeps freezing. The only way to fix it is to switch if off completely and restart. It has Macafee security pre loaded.


There could be several causes to random lockups:
  1. Hardware issue
  2. Drivers
  3. Application conflicts
Things you can try:
  1. Run system diagnostics. Most systems now have built in diagnostics that can be run to see if there are hardware issues with the system. (I'm not familiar with newer Acers, but I expect that there should be some Acer tools on the Programs menu, or check your owner's manual.)
  2. Download and install the latest BIOS revision, Chipset utility and Video drivers from Acer's support website, even brand new, it may have been in the box up to 6 months, and there may have been new releases for issues discovered since MFG.
  3. Windows has some tools to help you check out conflicts. Start, RUN , MSCONFIG, (Or Msconfig on the search line of Windows 7 then right click if on the menu above, and run as administrator) this will open the Microsoft System Configuration Utility. You can disable startup items that may be causing conflicts (Simplest way is uncheck all items on startup tab and reboot, see if issues go away, if they do, then go back to MSCONFIG, add tip 1/2 of items back, reboot and see if issues return. If they do, issue is in top 1/2, uncheck 1/2 of items checked, reboot. Keep of this process of 1/2s till you isolate the problem items and leave it unchecked.
  4. If your system did not come with an active antivirus, then install one www.download.com has several free active antivirus applications, pick one,(I use AVAST) and install it an run a scan. You can also try Malwarebytes anti-spyware application (You can use it in addition to an antivirus)
  5. If issues persist, try removing one memory module, run the system, see if anything changes. If not try the other module by itself. If issue only occurs with one module, then it is likely defective.
  6. If issues persist, contact Acer support as system should be under warranty.

I keep getting a code 7 it says activation on this license had expired.the program is only registered to one computer i don't need it for 3.however i just bought this program in august on the 29th of...


It sounds like a license malfunction. If it was a legitimate purchase(and it sounds like it was) you should contact the seller to receive support for the license issue. This would be the most painless way to solve it.
Most sellers offer free tech support for their products if they don't they may direct you to the maker who could also easily help. So you should be fine there.

Norton Antivirus 2008 purchased 4th July 2008 Order No.1644036072 £29.99. Confirmed paid on my Bank Statement.Can't Download. Need help as I keep getting reminders and I am not sure if I am covered.


No, even if you completed the purchase the antivirus is not active yet. You should have received, in the email used for the order, a link to the download, and a registration number.
Download the install program from the link and if required use the reg. number.
If you cannot find the email with the link check in spam mail, and in trash bin.
If you still cannot install the update, proceed from here to contact Symatech regarding your order, tell you cannot find the download, they will send a new one.
After installing the antivirus, you will need to connect to the internet to validate installation.
Here is FAQ on Norton downloads
