Spyware removal utility of the spyware remover tools is the best effective and only viable solution to get rid o the deadly spywares. Spywares are malicious programs that are spread through the freeware and shareware programs and through peer to peer file transfers. Spywares are hidden in these apparently harmless and attractive free downloads. When you download and install these programs the spywares are also installed in your computer. As the spywares are different from the computer viruses they are not even detected by anti virus software and the user is not even aware of the spyware in his or her computer.

My PC is showing updater.exe problem while everytime it boots


A process named update.exe appears to be part of several different programs. So many malware named itself update.exe.


***Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

I think you should run Anti malware software to scan your system.......

I got my CD RW infected by Win 32/ Auto Run Agent.YD worm. How can I clean and get back my documents free of virus?


First of all its good to have a Anti virus program like Avg or Avast go here to download them (choose one)

AVG free 2011
http://free.avg.com/au-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free (click avg free edition)

or

Avast 5
http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download (click free antivirus)

Now to scan your computer to get rid of virus's, spyware etc download these programs and make sure you run a scan once every two - three weeks

Malwarebytes - make sure you update this program everytime you use it and use the quick scan feature for a faster scan

SuperAntispyware - This program is good for the hard to find virus's and spyware, use this if Malwarebytes didn't work or vice versa
http://downloads.superantispyware.com/downloads/SUPERAntiSpyware.exe

Spywareblaster search & destroy - This program runs in the background that blocks access from programs or users from the internet that seems bad and use can use the scan feature to make sure no one has got passed.

There are two folder namely desktop.ini, desktop.ini automatically appeared in the desktop. I scan my computer using Microsoft security Analysis but these folders are not moved or deleted from the desktop....


This must be a worm that replicates files/folders. As we all know, desktop.ini is not a folder, it's a system file which can be opened with Notepad.

What antivirus were you using to scan your computer? This worm/s can be easily detected and deleted/repaired by avg free (click here to download avg free). [open the link and click green "Download" button]

Download and install the Avg Free. Run a full system scan and check the result. That will fix the issue related to your desktop.ini folder etc..etc..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Laptop infected with worm.


Nortons sucks. you should try an anti-virus scan with Malwarebytes, then you should install Avast as your resident protection. 

Be sure, when uninstalling Nortons, to use the uninstallation tool found on the nortons site. if you use the regular windows uninstaller, it will not remove all of it, and it will slow your computer down.

Laptop infected with worm? Help


No virus checker catches them all, and frankly, Norton 360 is pretty weak. Try running AVG, which is downloadable and free.

How can i remove virus worm/autoit permanently


its simple guys..!!!
if it asks for permission to access outlook..don't permit it because it is a smart virus and is going to spread it to all the people on your contact list...!!!
simply open task manager and end process tree of KHATRA.exe , gHost.exe , xplorer.exe and OUTLOOK.exe seperately...!!
then run your anti virus or download one if you don't have one..!!!
run a complete computer scan in detail..!!
then delete all files which are infected by the virus because the results contain only duplicate files which are created by the virus
