Sorry, but that's a backdoor trojan, and not a easy one to remove. You can try to get rid of it with infomation from this site as they have the removal infor. and is pretty much the same as others,or if running XP or Vista try to go back to before this thing got installed to see if that helps. Once it is in, pc owners are doing a full recovery to get it clean.

This trojan steals your information and passwords and is dangerous.

Although it is the 2009 version of Kapersky, it was upgraded to the latest version upon installation. The subscription which came with your computer is good for one year and you will be receiving renewal notices as the end of the subscription nears. Thus, if the one year license was activated in Jan 2013, it would have expired eight months ago. Unless you have activated another security or anti-virus program, your computer is unprotected and you are in danger of not only having your personal data compromised, but you are also in danger of having your computer taken over by viruses and malware.

How to fix blue screen error in w7 ultimate?


if you have a copy of Windows 7 enterprise. boot the pc from the disk. at the screen that asks if you want to instal Windows i cant remember if its the right or left corner. but there's a link that says something like fix this computer or repair computer. you can try doing an automatic repair.

there's a more in-depth method to repair the system files. but youll need a live cd to be able to navigate to your backup system files. and way too much to explain in this thread.

youll probably have to search google for a step-by-step guide

good luck

How to enable cookies for facebook. when ever I try to log in message comes that cookieds are not enable in your browser


You can configure your privacy settings in Internet Explorer 6 by clicking Internet Options on the Tools menu, and then clicking the Privacy tab.
NOTE: An administrator can customize your privacy settings and remove the Privacy tab from the interface in the Internet Options dialog box. If the Privacy tab is not available, contact your administrator, or see the "Information for Advanced Users and IT Professionals" section.
These settings replace the cookies settings on the Security tab in Internet Explorer 4 and 5 (and the Advanced tab in Internet Explorer 3). The Privacy settings slider has six settings: Block All Cookies, High, Medium High, Medium (default level), Low, and Accept All Cookies.
The following Privacy settings are available with the slider:
Block All Cookies: Cookies from all Web sites will be blocked, and existing cookies on your computer cannot be read by the Web sites that created them. Per-site privacy actions do not override these settings.
High: Blocks cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your explicit consent. Cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Medium High: Blocks third-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that use personally identifiable information without your explicit consent. Blocks first-party cookies that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent. First-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy and cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Medium (default level): Blocks third-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent. First-party cookies that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent are downgraded (deleted when you close Internet Explorer). First-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are also leashed. Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Low: First-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are also leashed. Third-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent are downgraded (deleted when you close Internet Explorer). Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Accept All Cookies: All cookies will be saved on your computer, and existing cookies on your computer can be read by the Web sites that created them. Per-site privacy actions do not override these settings.
NOTE: Changing your privacy preferences does not affect the cookie acceptance policy for cookies that have already been set unless you move the slider to Accept All Cookies or Block All Cookies.
Internet Explorer displays a Privacy dialog box the first time that a cookie is restricted based on your privacy preferences. This dialog box appears only one time, unless you clear the Don't show this message again check box. The Privacy dialog box explains that a new status icon (the Privacy Report icon) is added to the status bar when you visit a Web site that does not meet your privacy preferences. You can double-click this icon to view a privacy report that explains how the Web site either has privacy practices that conflict with your preferences or has no published privacy policy. You can also view a privacy report for any site by clicking Privacy Report on the View menu.
NOTE: The Privacy slider works only in the Internet zone. All cookies are automatically accepted from Web sites in both the Local Intranet and Trusted zones, and all cookies are automatically blocked from Web sites in the Restricted zone.

This is clearly a virus. I think your best shot is to take the computer to technician and ask him to try and save the data if you have something really important. Restoring data may cost quite a lot of money, so I would advise you to only do this if you have something really really important. If you do not have any crucial information on your laptop, I would suggest to format the laptop and install the windows anew.
Viruses tend to implement themselves and reinstalling the windows with no format is still too risky. I know that a lot of people will tell you to run an anti virus and let it take care of the virus for you, but in the bottom line- it doesn't remove the virus, simply because viruses are updating on a daily basis and anti-viruses can't keep up

How to change message memory and how to lock messages memory in the lg kp500??


You can't change the memory for your text messages. The LG Cookie can store up to 500 messages on the internal memory.

In terms of locking your messages, you can lock the handset but you will need to do this proceedure every time you want to lock people out of your mobile.

Menu > Settings > Phone Settings > Security Settings > Handset lock

We hope this helps!

I think you are trying to say that when your screen saver is displayed, you get this message. The solution is to remove the screen saver. If this is not the answer you want then comment soon, I might not have understood your problem correctly.
