Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq laptop has a virus

My compaq laptop has a virus on it....I run the virus program and it finds 152 viruses, after that it is complete and I hit the button to delete all viruses- it keeps saying that I have to register online or pay a fee to have the viruses removed. why is this happening? Is there something that I can do to get these viruses off or do I have to take it somewhere and have it fixed? I have disabled the wireless internet so it is not connected to the internet. Please help. Thanks.

You have probably picked up one of the new variations of Vundo.
What that suposed antivirus is telling you is a lie, the only virus you have is that thing.
Download and instal/run malwarebytes, you can get it here:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/
If after running malwarebytes you are still not happy, come over and see me at http://forum.pcmech.com I am the securities moderator over there and we have a few experts in this field.

Compaq keeps shutting down on startup


That may be a virus contamination. Try starting the unit in Safemode to see if it is stable in safemode. If you have recently installed or downloaded any files I would remove them and then perform a viruscan with your antivirus program virus definitions completely updated prior to initiating the virus scan.

Cant get the ctrl alt delete buttons to work on compaq nx 7010


Hi,
That is a sign that your system was hit by a virus.
Scan your system with your anti virus to get rid of that problem.
Download any task manager fixer in the net, just type "Task Manager Fixer" on any search engine and download the program, unzip it afterward.

Your problem hit me also last year and I downloaded some task fixer for free.

Hope that fixes your problem!

Compaq C700 keeps freezing.


You, more than likely have a VIRUS.. Try these two programs to check and remove them..
1) Malwarebytes Malware Removal http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
2) kaspersky virus removal tool.**Choose the tool at the bottom of the list..
http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/utility

Run full Scans with BOTH OF THESE PROGRAMS. After they have completed, Run Windows CHKDSK /F /R from the Run Command Line in the Start Menu. This will fix any Operating System Issues created by the Virus. GOOD LUCK!!

I cont remove the mcafee from my compaq laptop


Go to the McAfee website and download their McAfee removal tool. By running this you will completely remove all of your McAfee software. You will then be able to install your Kapresky anti-virus.

Freeze after boot up


hmm... given that it boots up fine into safe mode, i think there's a strong possibility that the problem is virus or spyware related.

i would see if you can run a virus scan with some good programs, check your startup processes to see if you find anything out of the ordinary, etc.

if you do find something or also think its a virus, reloading windows will always take care of that, and definitely speed up your system.

hope this helps

A few months ago was the peak of Windows Virus Season, so it's likely you picked up one or more. I have seen viruses this season that denied your browsers to access the interned though some of the computer's resources still had access.

Run a full virus scan in safe mode with your up to date Anti-Virus program. If you don't have Anti-Virus and a running Fire Wall, I suggest you do after you format and do a clean install of Windows.

Good luck.

it could be infected by a virus what you should do to completely solve this problem. save all you important documents formatt you entire harddrive and re-install your operating system and drivers and you problem will be solved ensure to install an updated version of your anti virus. scanning with the anti virus only now is probably too late some of you program files and registry could already be damaged so you must rather format.
