Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can't access Google at all

I have run every spyware, adaware, AVG but that didn't help. I can access everything else - just, all of a sudden, I can't access Google on both my Compaq desktop and my HP laptop. Am thinking I picked up a virus because I search a lot - but nothing helps.

Not familair with the yaabaa virus/spyware but usually this error is because your av got rid of the infection but didn't clean up the registry entry. So windows tries to load it and can't find the file so shows the error. So AVg killed it but it didn;t clean up afterwards.

Dell computer runs slow


just try to scan for viruses first and after doing that and if it is still the same unfortunately what you are going to have to do is to reformat the computer so that the NB's information is fresh. 100% that yould resolve your issue.

When i type in google where i want to go for example asda it keeps going to other sites


this is a symptom of spyware on your computer. There are only two good free pieces of software that might be able to help. Lavasoft AdAware 2008 and SpyBot Search and Destroy. all other free software that says it can remove spyware most likely will put more spyware on the computer. The two above pieces of software are the only spyware removal tools I trust.

Spyware


Download adaware (free product), Spybot (another free product) and C-Cleaner (again this also is a free product)

Run C-Cleaner first, then adaware (run it over and over again till it does not find any more), then run spybot, run it over and over again till it can't find anymore. THEN run c-cleaner again (and run it till it does not find anymore) - Then run c-cleaners registry cleaner (fix all problems do not back up registry) till it finds no more problems.

If this does not work - write back and we will go from there.

My puter is sooooo slow and I am to broke to take anywhere--Help!!!!


This is a case of spyware possibly. Try the things that I am going to tell you. If these things do not work let me know.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate this as a Fixya if it helps.

Avg will not load


Uninstall it and reinstall it. You seem to have spyware that has taken it over and stopped it.
TRY ALL OF THESE THINGS. Sounds stupid but spyware takes many things to stop it. Spyware can do a lot of things and it takes more than one program to catch all of it. Spyware will shut one program down and another program will have to repair what the other one did not catch.

Slow


Good morning. Quite a number of things can cause your computer to run slow. Usually, it's due to the data on your disk being too fragmented or due to a virus or spyware problem. Also, if you have your hard drive too full (80%) or more, it can really slow things down. Do a disk cleanup, then a defrag and see if that helps. If not, go out on the net and download some of the free antivirus programs and run them. They seem to run as good, or better, than most of the paid packages that I've seen. AVG is good as is SpyBot and AdAware. I run all three on a regular basis and have few virus/spyware problems. If those things don't take care of the problem, get back to us for some more ideas.
Best of luck and Have a good day!

Problem with connectivity. I can sign on, but after that everything freezes. This only happens with the screen names chiameliezer and dfs. Please advise.


This is a shot in the dark really, since it could be a number of things including a corrupted hard drive, but It most likely is just some nasty virus or spyware if it is limited to the certain accounts, so log in as an admin user that works, and run your favorite spyware tool and antivirus scans and see if that helps. AdAware is a good one and has a free version that's free to use at home. You may try Spybot also and a Trend antivirus online scan is also good - and free. AVG has a free antivirus if you need one. If that is not it, you may have to delete those user accounts or do a repair on your Windows install by using the CD.

I have an unknown trojan virus thats keeps poping up trying to get me to installed anitspyware how do i get rid of it


  1. AntiVirus - AVG Free Edition
  2. AntiSpware - Spyware Blaster
  3. AntiAdware - Ad-Aware
I recommend using all three of these programs, by doing so you have all your bases covered. AVG Free edition is an awesome program, it updates daily so you can catch even the newest viruses. Best of all it's free! Spyware Blaster is another great program, I've found that this will pick up a lot of things other programs may miss, again it's a free program. Ad-Aware is another great program, this program will also clear out any tracking cookies you may have acquired over time. I use all three of these personally and install them on every computer I build or service.
  • Where do I get these great free programs.
If you haven't visited CNET's http://www.download.com already you are missing out on tons of great free programs, they have everything from games demo's to music editing software, screen savers, and of course antivirus, antispyware, and antiadware programs. This site is updated frequently and includes many reviews on their content. u could simply go to this page and use the search box to find the above mentioned programs, but I'll make it easy for you, follow the below links.

For AVG anti virus-http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=pop.software
For Spyware Blaster-http://www.download.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=lst-2
For AdAware-http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?tag=pop.software
