Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Internet sites not working

I recently had been online and apparently obtained a large amount of spyware on my computer. I have Symantec anitvirus and spyware remover. When i run Symantec, it says there are 2 "Adware" programs that have been quarantined and a reboot of my computer is required. After reboot, I scan again, and the problems are still there. Also, my microsoft automatic updates keep automatically shutting off because it says there may be a virus. In addition, there are certain websites that I frequently use that are no longer accessible to me (google, weather.com, facebook, myspace, yahoo). Other than that, my AIM instant messenger works fine and there is nothing wrong except for sluggish computer.

After running your antivirus, clear the virus vault, the reboot, and start the process over again, twice should do it. Also, go to filehip[po.com and download CCleaner and run it. It will help clean out excess build up of unnecessary **** (for lack of space to list all the items included) making your machine run faster and more efficiently. If you continue to have problems, the virus may have damaged the operating system, a system restore or reload will correct this. (Only after removing the virus) If you can't remove the virus, then it has damaged your antivirus software, many of the newer viruses go directly for the antivirus first, then the system. If this is the case the only way to be certain is to completely wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system.

Anything I try to download stops at 99%. will not complete. Have Windows XP service pack 3 and internet explorer 8. Have uninstalled and disabled spyware and anitvirus and still having the same issue.


Try saving it to a thumb drive - or make a special folder - sounds like you might be out of memory. If that doesn't work - download Malware Bytes and run it.
Also a great cleaner free is CCleaner.
Also - to check it and be sure it isn't the file - try downloading another file that is large too but that you can just delete once you download it - for a test download.

Best of it.

Hello.

I know from experience that 360 has excellent online support including live chat and it is free. Try that avenue first. I believe it is under the Help item on the main page.

Another thing....NEVER, NEVER post a legitimate software key on a public site such as this. I am going to email the site admin and see if they will remove it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Keep updating avira always and install spyware terminator to check is it spyware or not because avira free version only for virus but there is something like spyware, adaware, malware etc. Just try spyware terminator, update avira and if possible install Comodo firewall and block the unknown applications connecting to internet.

C'PROGRAM ~1\MYWEBS~1\1.bin\M3PLUGIN.DLL


That file belongs to the My Websearch toolbar, which is malware. If you have
recently cleaned up your computer to remove malware, then a reference was
left in Startup. See below for how to manage your Startup. If you have
*not* recently cleaned up your computer, you need to do so. See below for
general malware removal steps.
You need to run a scan for malware search web for FREE program to do this make sure its the full program that will scan and DELETE malware not just scan
Or go to start/find/type in the dll name when found right clicck it and delete it
