A firewall will just block any access to the Internet incoming and Outgoing, that is not allow by the User, You. Putting a Firewall will assist with not getting any further Viruses, But Not with removing, However if your Mcafee comes with a Firewall and an anti-virus, This would work. You can also Goto Symantec.com or Mcafee and they have free On-line Virus scanners and you can atleast know what your Dealing with. From there Symantec has Virus removal tools for specific viruses. I do however recommend an Anti-virus software, Something like Kaspersky would do you wonders

Have you scanned your computer for viruses? Try something like McAfee Stingerhttp://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/free-tools/how-to-use-stinger.aspx which is free and doesn't need to be installed. Also run an anti-virus scan.

You require Norton AntiVirus from a disc as a clean boot will be required due to the virus "hiding" in the RAM.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

On HP Pavillion 512n - When I plug the computer in only the fans work and the light on the switch is on. There is no drive sound and nothing on display. Is it a motherboard problem or power supply problem?


first thing is to check RAM. Some times faulty RAM stops computer to load up and don not display anything.....if the problem persist try to change cmos battery>>> if problem still there then go for supply check>>>>last comes motherboard........

To disable your firewall (assuming it's windows)

1. Click on Start > Control Panel
2. Click the security tab
3. Then you'll see a tab called windows firewall
4. Under it, it should say turn windows firewall on/off

Computer is very slow.


McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system scan....you could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

Cannot save change to mcfee, to allow webcam to work with msn messenger live


In my oppinion, ditch McAfee and simply use the Windows Firewall together with a free Virus Scanner such as AVG.
People will tell you that AVG is bad, however with a little bit of research you will find that it actually scores better than Norton -and- McAfee.
For added security you may also want to make sure that your routers firewall is turned on.
A simple spyware scan once a week or when ever convenient with something like SpyBot will do.
