Question about Sony VAIO VGN-S460 Notebook

1 Answer

Possible Virus or Spyware

My internet and other programs have become harder to open. A Vista Antivirus message pops up everytime I try to go into something. Also my computer locks up when I try to open the Control Panel. The privacy level will not remain at "medium high" it goes back to "allow all cookies" and the pop-up blocker will not stay on. Can you help?

Antivirus protection scan


It *WILL* install a virus if you allow it to. Sometimes these programs make it very difficult to NOT download their ****. It's telling you to download something in the hopes that you WILL accept the download.

***Do NOT download anything that you do not WANT to download. ***

Anytime you get to a website like this, make a note of it to never visit it again. Anytime you want to download something, make SURE it is what you want and nothing more. At the end of the day, it is NOT worth risk. The wrong decision could ruin your computer, lose your files, misdirect your websearches, slow your internet connection, among some of the results. The internet can be a very dangerous place.

Better to err on the side of caution.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Do an antivirus update and run a scan at LEAST once a week. Even the safest websites can put **** on your computer.

I use xp.. i download a file in internet after that ,everytime i start the computer theres always a virus(i have avira) but cant remove it..


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.

Cant load a map because Google has detected unregistered Antivirus 2009 copy on your computer. Google


It has been my experience that messages like these are really spyware programs the redirect you to their websites to purchase their junk. I would recommend running through you program listings (Add/Remove Software)and removing anything you don't absolutely need or don't know of. Google maps is a javascript application, so anything loading a javascript library that isn't from Sun Microsystems is probably suspect. Look for anything with java or jscript in the name, or, anything that doesnt have a description. Most are toolbar apps or search engines. Your Antivirus might pick it up as spyware and might not. So a thorough spyware check is heavily recommended.

It is a virus or spyware try running a antivirus or antispyware prog if that doesn't help you will have a choice live with it(easy, but annoying), take it in (easy,but expensive), or save all your important files and reload everything (little more difficult, but cheap). Hope that helps you out. Either way you do it make sure to always have antivirus and antispyware running, you can get good ones for free. here are some links.
