Hi
You will find this site useful. It has a complete guide to securing your pc (for free!) and also has the best free antivirus, antispyware and other security programs. If you follow the steps the site recommends you can pretty much guarantee that you won't get another infection! He also recommends good online scanners that will help you fight your current infection.

Hope this is helpful, though it's more of an addition to the previous solution.

Sounds like you got a virus. Give your PC a good deep scan.

My computer runs really slow, freezes, internet explorer hardly ever works. help!!


There is no such thing as a windows vista machine. You can install different operating systems on different machines. Your problem is most likely that you're missing drivers for the peripherals.
Download a program called "driver easy" and run it. It will tell you what drivers are missing, once you get all the drivers installed you should find things work better, like once you get your network running then internet explorer will stop having problems.

My start and close button has disappeared on my computer. What do I do?


When you dont see your Start botton or your Icons once your PC is started explorer.exe has stopped working. This is most likley the form of Malware.

Try This:

Once your Start button returns you might want to scan your PC with Malwarebytes in safe mode to remove any unwanted software.

Gateway gt5468 comes up with windows error box"


Explorer is the main "program" of Windows. (the actual windows and folders and icons and such are run by this software program called Explorer which works with other pieces of software to make up the Windows operating system. Having a recurring error with explorer is not a good thing.
Take the following steps to restart your explorer
-Hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and select Start Task Manager if it doesn't automatically pop up.
-Go to the processes tab and make sure explorer.exe is not there, if it is, right click and shut down the process.
-Click File-->New Task(Run)
-type in explorer and hit enter, this should restart the explorer.
-If possible then try running a full virus scan as well as run a scan disk with fix any errors checked

If you cannot get to this process I would recommend backing up all of your important documents and re-installing windows.
I hope this helps in some way, thank you.

Stops


ok, it could be a corrupted Internet Explorer program itself. Does it happen only with it or, if you are using another browser, is it happening with the other browser too?. If you only use Internet Explorer as your Web Browser, then download a copy of the installation package (can download it from here http://www.microsoft.com/nz/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx ) and reinstall it. It should work. If you want a further explanation on how to do it, please specify Operative System. Hope it helps, good luck.

There seems to be an issue with your browser or the computer may be effected by spyware or Virus. Are you facing this issue only with Facebook or others website also?
You can try to use any other browser to confirm its a browser issue. Try to switch to google Chrome or Firefox.

Go to control panel

Windows explorer has stopped working


It is possible that the application you installed in your computer is not compatible with Windows Vista. You can try to repair it using the recovery console.

1. Restart your computer.

2. As soon you have the HP logo came up. keep on tapping F8 on and off to go to the advance boot option.

3. Select the option ' Repair my Computer" . Follow the instruction.

4. Select startup repair. It will ask you to click finish when the repair is done. The system will restart itself.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
