Hey there

Once you are infected of viruses then you wont be able to remove them compltely by doing some utilities.
You need to install some good Antivirus Program.

First of all check for what kind of viruses are affecting ur system by:

Because your virus leads to your system very slow as well as restarts itself without awaring you. It is caused by Worm and Trojon viruses. For making sure that ur system is suffering from virus go to tools in menu bar and check for folder. if the folder option appears to you then it is okay. again try to go to Task manager by right clicking on the tasl bar. If the task manager is also showing then you are not affected of viruses.

Try out QuickHeal Antivirus by downloading it from the following link:
http://www.quickheal.com

Download its trial version and then get it updated by connecting ur pc to the internet.
This antivirus program can remove all the viruses that are currently present in ur system.

gimme your acknowlege by rating me

thanx

Computer virus removal


Viruses are actually pretty simple to get rid of. First of all you have to understand that viruses need the internet connection to function, afterall that's how you got the virus (via the internet). So the best way to get rid of the virus is to take down the internet so it can't hide or function. Also viruses normally start up once you turn on the computer, so you will also need to first and foremost disable the virus from starting.

Turn you computer off and turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the safe mode option, and let it boot up. Safe Mode looks bigger and darker but that's normal. Once you see the desktop click Start/Programs/Accessories/Run. What we are looking for is to get to the RUN command and you might see it right after you click Start before hitting Programs or you might see if before you click Accessories. When you have the run command window up, type: msconfig and press ok. This will open the systems configuration utility. Click the Startup tab and you will notice a check mark by everything that starts running when you boot your computer. There are only two columns we are concerned with 1) Startup Items 2) Command If you place the mouse pointer between the column that says Startup Items and the next column you will notice it will turn into a + so you you can hold the left mouse button down and drag the column to the right so that you will be able to see more text under the Start Items column. Do the same thing for the Command Column. Now start from the top working our way down on the Start Items column and take a look at what the individual start item is and what the command is. Some things will be self explanatory to you because you might recognize the descriptive name in the command column. What we are really looking for is things that have a check mark next to the Startup Item but there is no Command (it's a virus so remove the check mark) Also viruses attach themselves to the user that was using the computer so if you see a Startup Item with a command of : (C:/documents and settings/The user account will be here/local settings/application data/xxxxxxxx.exe) it could be a virus if you don't recognize the name of the application (ex. Google, Adobe, etc). If the name of the application seems weird, remove the check mark. Also remove the check mark from any Startup Item that says dumprep 0 -k and the command will repeat the dumprep after the \system32 folder.
Once you finish and don't be afraid if you remove the check mark from something you were not too sure about, you can always go back in and replace the check mark. Remember removing the check mark only means that the item can not start running when you boot the machine which is what you want for viruses.

Next reboot your machine and again wait until you see the SAFE Mode options, but this time we want to select SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. Safe Mode With Networking will hold the virus at bay and allow us to use the internet. Once it is booted up open your internet browser and go to google www.google.com and in the google search box type "download cnet malwarebytes" without the quotes. Look for the site download.cnet.com to download MalwareBytes it will have a date of Jan 30 2012. Be careful on the Download buttons and make sure you click the button to download Malwarebytes (Green Download Button). There are some other REd download buttons that will download junk such as some type of registry scan. Once you download and install MalwareBytes run a QUICK SCAN. As it runs and finds infections the number of infections will be in Red. You'll be amazed at how many Norton Antivirus or McAfee allowed on your system. When it finishes you will click the SHOW RESULTS button, a notepad text document will pop up showing you the results. You can close the notepad text document because we are only concerned with the MalwareBytes Interface. Click Remove Selected Results (they will already be selected for you). When it finishes removing the infections it will tell you to press OK and it will reboot your machine. This time let it boot up normally into windows. Now if you have Norton or McAfee as your antivirus, uninstall it and install the free AVG or AVAST antivirus programs. After all, why pay them to catch a virus when you can catch one for FREE. AVG and AVAST stops intrusions that Norton and McAfee allows in and they don't make your system slow. If there is not an uninstall under Start/Programs/ for Norton or McAfee then click Start/Control Panel and uninstall it from there.

I have an hp desktop which is really slow,runs vista.rogers virus check shows no problems but other virus checks and registry mechanic says i have lots of viruses and problems but they want money to fix...


I have this machine! I also have a spare computer that has a 2.0GHz P4 and 2GB of Memory and, best of all, I also use a program called Shadow Surfer on it. I use this Shadow Surfer to run a virtual Windows XP that will NOT keep anything I download, change, contract virus, etc - they simply vaporize on each reboot. Any way, I remove the Sata drive and hook it up to a Sata PCI Card on the spare machine with Shadow Surfer. I access the Sata Drive to copy my work to a CD first. Then, I let McAfee do their job on scanning all night because the Sata drive is 250GBs large, plus I let it scan the CD I just used to burn my work files, too. If I get a positive virus hit on the CD, I burn again leaving out the infected file. Then I use another program from Acronis to wipe the drive partition (C:) only if the virus(es) cannot be fixed by McAfee. I press the power button & hold for 5 seconds to shut down the spare computer. I don't worry because the Shadow Surfer enabled (spare) computer is crash-proof. It boots up with a fresh Windows XP all over again, each and every time. The SR2180NX gets its drive back in and if the disk will not boot, I press F10 at boot time to start the recovery process from the recovery partition. I also burn recovery disks as the first procedure. If it is too late to do that part, go to HP.com and go to support, download drivers, and select Vista (not Vista 64bit), Click on the Order Recovery Disks and be prepared to enter your Presario's Serial Number to verify you are going to order the correct disks. Use a credit card and they cost less than $17 delivered via US Mail in less than a week. During this wait, go to a computer store and pick up some memory. I was able to get 4 sticks of DD2-6400's at 2GB each. I used the Low Latency (low Density, non-ecc, unbuffered) from Patriot (kit of 2 each) to pack on 8GB even though HP will only support up to 4 GBs. I had to load the Default in BIOS, reboot and change stuff to what I wanted before booting again. Vista 32bit is the OS that shows up on the restore disks from HP and it will show all 8Gb in the system page after you are done starting from scratch. Any way, the memory really makes a difference but keeping your system optimized from the beginning and keeping proper backups will save you headaches later on down the road. Maybe getting Shadow Surfer installed and setting up a guest account that it boots to on power up will also save you from just about anyone coming along when you are not looking and changing things behind your back. Hope I have helped with something! -Gregg

AVG 7 detecdted Virus Hurri on partition table. How do I remove ?


You will need to fix the master boot record with the Windows XP Recovery Console. To do this, you will need a Windows XP install CD.

Here are the steps to use the recovery console:

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.

In this instance, the correct commands are:

c:\fixmbr
c:\fixboot
The type exit after finishing then remove the Original OS CD.
The machine will reboot properly.

This will fix your boot sector

And All should be well

It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..
