I am typing facebook.com bit some thing els apprearing


Most likely you have a virus that is redirecting your inputs to places the virus wants you to go. First try to clear the history in your browser. If that fails, then run a deep virus scan on the unit to attempt to find and eliminate the problem.

Possible corrupt operating system. The cause of corrupt operating system is Windows file corrupted or virus infected Windows.

Solution corrupt Windows files:
1. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Restore (restore to the date when the OS is still normal)
2. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Image Recovery (restore using a backup system that you created)

Solution files corrupted due to virus infected windows
Update anti-virus and virus scan (if the virus is detected, the primary action = repair, secondary action = quarantine). Then repair the operating system with System Restore or System Recovery Options.
Note:
If the operating system infected with virus (virus infected not long ago), the best solution is to use System Restore. Restore to a date when the windows are still normal.

My anti virus detect a virus... the virus is automatically remove fro my pc???


If the virus has automatically been removed from your PC, that means that the virus is no longer present on your pc, so you would not be infected by that virus anymore


however if you have been infected with a virus it's a good idea to do a full system scan to see if there is any other virus infections in your machine.

Whenever I connect any removable drive automatically 4 shortcuts got created of control panel.


You have a virus on your PC. Unfortunately, once you have this virus, it usually does not help updating your anti virus and running a scan since the virus is running in the memory of the PC and every infected file the anti virus removes - the virus just puts back again. Try one of two things to remove the virus:

1] First update your anti virus (if you dont have an anti virus, download the free AVG Antivirus and install that and then update it. Click here to go to AVG's website. Once installed - Boot your pc into SAFE MODE. This is VERY important otherwise the virus will load into memory and it wont help running the anti virus to clean the system as the memory resident virus will just replace any infected file that is removed by the scan. To boot your PC into safe mode: Read this article: Click here.

Once you are in safe mode - Open the Anti-virus console and do a complete system scan.

2] Remove the infected hard drive from your PC and install it as a secondary drive in a clean, VIRUS PROTECTED PC!!! ... i.e .. any pc that has the latest anti-virus system installed and is up to date!. Once you have installed the infected drive in the protected PC as a secondary drive, run a scan on the infected drive and remove the virus.

Once you have removed the virus, also scan ANY USB devices on that PC, including any Cameras, cellphones, photo frames, etc that you might have plugged into the infected PC.

Good luck

What is symantec antivirus??????????


Symantec/Norton AntiVirus (SAV for Windows, NAV for Mac OS X) is a virus protection program distributed by the Symantec Corporation, offering effective protection features, including infected file quarantine, online virus protection updates, and an automatic scheduler. SAV/NAV is designed to start running as soon as your computer's operating system starts. It runs in the background, checking all vulnerable files for possible infection by malevolent programs called viruses and worms. SAV/NAV does this by looking for the identifying signatures of these worms and viruses and comparing them to known viruses for which it has files. When it detects an infected file, it notifies you and manages the infection according to your preferences.

My nokia6300 was infected of virus


It will not be infected by virus. Maybe it is infected with computer virus? If so plug it to the computer withantivirus installed as flash device and check it for viruses. It is not a smartphone. Only smartphones may be infected by phone viruses.

I have downloaded trail of total security 2010 quickheal 32 bit for windows xp,,but unable to install it on my pc.. an error occur while installing it on pc during pre install virus scan,and install...


Either:

1. your computer is virus-infected.

2. the download trial (not "trail") itself is virus-infected.
If you did not download directly from the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.quickheal.co.in/qh-total-security.asp

you could have downloaded a virus-infected file.

So, download a free(!) virus-scanner from http://www.prevx.com or from http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials

rather than _paying_ for anti-virus software.
