Once you are done shopping for the anti-spyware tool, download it and check for updates before you start the scanning process. Make sure that the anti-spyware tool scans all the physical drives on the computer and any external drive attached. Most of the anti-spyware tools are easy to install and you can even schedule a spyware scan on a daily basis. So you can remove spyware on your own and help restrict future spyware from attacking your computer.

My HP 6750 locks up constantly and I have to force a reboot..Why ?


it may have some cross-linked files, you can try running check-disk to repair the disk, but you probably have some spyware or a virus. the best solution is to reinstall the software and make sure you have up-to-date antivirus/antispyware software. that is the only way to make sure the computer is completely clean. the software is supposed to be reinstalled from the original disks every year anyway. you can get avgfree antivirus at avgfree.com, i would also suggest you install spybot search & destroy spyware tools. i also use spyware blaster. you can download those from majorgeeks.com. if you would like to try removing the viruses/spyware first, i would suggest you try an online scanner tool at one of the major antivirus websites. norton's, computer associates', mcafee's, trend micro's, etc. it is very difficult to remove a virus using software on an infected system, so you have to use an outside source that is 'clean'. you should also be running a firewall for security, such as zonealarm. the free zonealarm firewall can be downloaded at zonealarm.com.

Its a virus.
You need to run these 3 essential programs to remove all the spyware on your computer.

If you do not have an internet security suit and only an anti virus
1. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
2. Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt!
3. Run the anti spyware removal programs spybot or Superantispyware
Use Mozilla firefox or the google chrome browser for browsing unsafe websites

Install ThreatFire.ThreatFire, features innovative real-time behavioral protection technology that provides powerful standalone protection or the perfect complement to traditional signature-based antivirus programs offers unsurpassed protection against both known and unknown zero-day viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, spyware, adware and other malware.
Run an online virus scan like Trend Micro HouseCall,F-Secure Online Virus Scanner etc etc

Install a good antivirus in your computer.
Keep your antivirus updated. If automatic updates are available, configure your antivirus to use them.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially and if I may remark, a very challenging and time consuming virus cleanup. Some that you could try:
  • determine what virus files/names are involved. Some would be appearing in "msconfig" startup;
  • some would not allowed to be deleted, try delete in Safe Mode;
  • in some instances, some services would have to be stopped using Ctrl-Alt-Del;
  • download, install and run RRT (remove restriction tool);
  • download, install and run Ad-Aware.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I have an alert stating that WARNING SPYWARE HAS BEEN DETECTED ON YOUR COMPUTER


Your computer is infected with malware. You should install an antivirus and at least one antimalware program(the more the better). Once they are installed, make sure they are updated and run a scan with each program individually in safe mode(press f8 at the post screen when you turn on your computer and choose safe mode). A couple good free antivirus programs are AVG and Avast. To name a few good anti malware programs there's Spybot Search and Destroy, Superantispyware, and Lavasoft Adaware. You can also go to www.ewido.com and run an online scan.

Cannot get rid of an unwanted program .


here's manual antivirus xp 2008 removal
http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-antivirus-xp.html

If you are having problems with your desktop or getting the nasty message when you boot up follow the instructions below, but use the above link to remove the virus. YES THIS IS A VIRUS AND NOT A VIRUS REMOVAL TOOL!

First you need to stop the program from loading on startup. This is what you do to stop it:

Start, run

Type msconfig

Go to Startup tab
(if you've totally removed the antivirus program, you will not find these files and you can skip to the gpedit.msc step)

Uncheck lphc35dj0e1an
Uncheck rhc75dj0e1an

Click apply, then ok
Restart computer


Then you need to delete the main files this program uses. Delete the following file:

C:\windows\system32\lphc35dj0e1an.exe

Delete the following folder and all contents:

C:\program files\rhc75dj0e1an

This should remove the program from your system but you probably still have a warning message displayed as your wallpaper in Windows and the virus removed the ability to change the wallpaper or your desktop settings.

To restore ability to change your desktop settings and select a different wallpaper and screen saver do the following:

Start, run

type Gpedit.msc

Navigate to User configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, Display

Right click on Remove Display in Control Panel
Click on Properties and select Disabled

Do the same steps to change the following attributes to disabled:

Hide Desktop Tab
Prevent changing wallpaper
Hide Apperance and Themes tab
Hide Settings tab
Hide Screen Saver tab

You should now be able to use your computer normally and change the wallpaper/screensaver to something other than the warning message Antivirus XP 2008 set it to.

I've already purchased Norton antivirus 2008 with antispyware and loaded but my screen still blue and shows Warning spyware detected in computer & to install antivirus or spyware wich i did.


That blue screen sounds like a trick to me. Many viruses and spywares or the websites that distribute them make beleive that they are causing viruses then provide links to fake antivirus and spyware removal programs that actually make your system worst.

Use the Norton to purchased to do a full deep scan of your system. I also like to supplement my Norton by running the free scan at housecall.trendmicro.com when I suspect there might be a problem on my machine that Norton can't fix.

Wallpaper changed to something blue with yellow and blue dialog


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!
