Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

2 Answers Virus Hi I have Windows Vista but hopefully someone can help me anyway. I have a virus I believe to be "". It stops searches on search engines from loading and starts draining my RAM until there's nothing left. I've scanned with AVG, Sybot and a few others but no luck. Please help!

    Thanks a million. That's a handy link but unfortunately nothing was detected so I guess I'm barking up the wrong tree. As a novice, the only other theory I can come up with is that 'virtumonde' is behind it. My internet is no longer affected (at least not during this session) but right now, at ~550MB, I'm down to half my normal amount of free RAM.

    I reckon this is probably something very simple that isn't worth the expense of going to a repair shop over but I just can't put my finger on it:(

Hi FixYa, I am running AutoCAD2009 (also 2008 before) on my Vista Ultimate edition system. I found the application fairly smooth but there is only one thing that always bother me. Whenever an ACAD file...

Ok Dan a usb flash drive is theoretically a hardive external I believe your problem lies in one the virus protection that I never use or Vista isn't compatible with the autocad . Check to see if your running 64 bit vista or 32 most programs don't run well at 64 bit.I run xp pro no anti virus an no problems.

The task is courrupt or has been tampered with.mcupdate for my microsoft vista

This is usually caused by a virus/trojan horse infection. Run your anti-virus software to identify the virus and then follow it's instructions on how to remove it. If all fails you can reformat but that would mean losing all the data that is currently on your hard drive and starting over. Hope this helps.

Vista not updating and unable to open control panel and display properties

1) Launch services.msc from a run command
2) Find the SLUNotify service & stop it
3) Find the Software Licensing service & stop it (it may say that ReadyBoost needs that service to run; stop it anyway)
4) Restart both services, starting with Software Licensing

That's all. No reboot needed.
