You can try different antivirus like AVG, NOD32, or kaspersky, but if you really want to erase it then back up all of your data and then reformat your HD using the Windows Vista Installation disk.Or better delete the partition and then recreate it,this will 110% get rid of that virus. You may want to use a anti spyware utility like ad-aware this can also get rid most spyware/trojan out their.

Can't turn on windows defender


Make sure you don't have any other virus program running such as Norton, Mcafee, AVG, etc. If you do then that will stop windows defender from turning on. If you do have any virus programs running you'll have to uninstall them before turning on Windows Defender.

The truth about anti-virus software


Which anti-virus software is the best? This is a question I get asked at least weekly and the answer is it's a matter of opinion. If there was a best anti-virus program there would'nt be so many, after all there is only one Windows.
It is strictly preference some people love Norton while other hate it because it slows down their pc due to the number of processes it runs.
I personal prefer Bit-defenders online scanner because it is online not bogging down my computer and whatever it can not disinfect it deletes. Another good thing is the updates can not be shut off by a trojan since it is online.
My advice is try several with a free trial and choose whichever you like best.

Hi, I have a HP Pavillion a1253w and it will not boot it started with some bug that got around my norton I reinstalled norton but then it stopped going past windows boot screen, now it will not shut down...


Hi inick798...

To remove a virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer...do it the EASY way...let someone else do it for you.
Start your computer, as the computer is starting keep tapping the F8 Key.
This will start the computer in the Safe Mode.
Once in the safe mode go to the following webage below and download,install, and run Microsoft Safety Scanner for FREE.
Once you run the Microsoft Safety Scanner (it may take quite a while depending on the size of your hard drive) it will remove all the virus's,trojans,worms,etc it finds, if it does not completely remove them all you will be given a chance to chat with a Microsoft Professional thru a pop open window and he will take control of your computer (with your permission) and finish removing all the rest of the virus's, trojans, or worms that are on your computer for FREE!! Can't beat FREE!!
Please take time to rate me

How to rid my computer of viruses


Use any Anti-virus scanner.
To start with you can use any trialware version of prominent anti-virus companies, like
norton
mcafee
bit defender
avg

you can try download.com to find free and trial based anti-virus programs.

Updating your virus scanner definitions regularly would minimize chances of getting infected again if your virus scanner is good.

Best virus/spyware protection


be careful when using symantec, it is a real resource hog! It does a good job, but is also expensive and costs annually to use. I use all the same items as GregL except i have had a lot of problems with SP3 :/ then again i normally install it on a working machine, and it messes somthing up. On a fresh install of windows XP it should do fine (SP3 that is)

I think my norton is downloaded wrong. I have a virus and cannot run norton


Hi mollducks, first things first. If you are using any version of XP turn on windows firewall. Click the start button & open control panel. Open windows firewall & click it to on if it is not on.
Try downloading AVG antivirus software for free at this link:
http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe Than run it. Full system scan.
After you run AVG on you're system use Norton’s remove utility to uninstall any left over files from Norton.
AVG should have caught any virus.
http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
If you bought Norton antivirus software for download, go to this Norton site & click support:
http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/index.jsp
If it was the free download, try again to download it.
Norton should do a quick scan during installation.
You might want to keep AVG. Norton should still install with AVG already installed. You can remove AVG at any time.
Lastly, once you feel there are no virus's in you're system shut down the PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case & gently remove you're memory DIMM's. Wait 1 minute & re-install them. Make sure they are correctly connected. Double check all data & power cables are securly connected & close the PC & plug the power cord back in. (By doing this you remove any virus that may be hiding with in you're memory).

Good luck mollducks!
Feel free to ask if there is still an issue with norton after running the above sugestions.

Problems with Norton Anti Virus 2008 Automatic Protection Updates. Taking forever!! I do only have dial up, but never had problems with the 2007 version.


Yeah I had Norton and a lot of the time it would just freeze up on me and I have a pretty fast computer. They put a lot of effort into making it look nice and not as much as they should have with the actual code. Also if that's the only part your having trouble with than it's probably because of your internet connection speed or your computer speed. If you really don't want to get rid of it than you might have to just leave your computer on for like a day while your at work or out somewhere. But what I do now is I just use windows defender which is free and very good with windows and very fast too. It doesn't have quite as many features as Norton like parental controls and non-essentials but it will recognize threats and remove them just as well as Norton if not better. It's free and can be found at the link below. AVG Anti-Virus free edition is also one that has gotten great reviews but I've never actually used it so I only know what I've heard. The second link will go to that.

Trojans can be tough to get rid of, the best solution is to reinstall Windows xp, then try installing norton again. Reinstalling windows will rid your computer of whatever program or cookie that contains the trojan. Then norton should take over and keep these forms of malware at bay.

Virus on my computer help!


Hi,

Don't worry, trojan.adclicker is not a serious threat, only some spyware which is not anywhere near as malicious as a virus. There are two things you can do to get rid of it though..

1) Follow these instructions (They are long winded but will work)
http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2002-091214-5754-99&tabid=3

2) Download Spybot S&D. This is a really good bit of software that should get rid of it much more easily for you, and will probably get rid of other similar stuff on your pc. Follow the link below and then install the program, then scan the system, then fix problems.

I would recommend trying option 2 first, it will be less hassle.

Hope this was helpful
