Download and install at least one of these all free depending on your operating system http://spybot-search-destroy.soft32.com/ Freeware detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules. http://www.all-freeware.com/details/113090/bitdefender-mobile-security.html Bitdefender Mobile Security Free Download Information: All Freeware is not responsible for freeware you are downloading nor for details provided about the freeware "Bitdefender Mobile Security 1.1.593" listed here, as the developer can modify information without notifying us.

There are total 29 spyware,trojan rougeand adware viruses in the pc software.how ican get rid of all these please .product is window vista.hp pavilion intel core 2 quad processor


You gave no mention of anti spyware or antivirus programs.

You need to reboot your computer in safe mode (F8) as it is starting.

Once in Safe Mode, run your antispyware, antivirus and antimalware programs. then restart in normal mode and run them again.

If you have none of these programs, try:

Advance system Care
- anti spyware
AVG AntiVirus
Security 360 - anti malware, trojans

good luck

How can I get rid of CA parental control? I never set it up!


AntiSpyware 2008 is a rogue anti-spyware program from the developers as Antivirus 2009. This program is advertised through misleading and deceptive web sites that pretend to be malware scanners that find infections on your computer They do this to scare you into thinking your infected, even though a web site can't possibly know this, in the hopes that you will download and install the AntiSpyware 2008 program. If you decide to install it, the program will scan your computer and come back with a list of security risks found on your computer that you cannot remove unless you first purchase a license of the software. It is important to remember that these people are preying on your fear and for the most part you do not have the infection they say you do.

I downloaded the program Antivirus 2009 Professional but i cannot access it or find a way to make sure it is installed


Antivirus 2009 is a hoax. It a virus/spyware intended only to harm your computer. To get it off is way hard. Check my website.

Looking around the internet it looks like the file is a virus, thus causing the issues you are experiencing. Download a good virus/spyware protection program like spysweeper to clean it and keep it from happening again.
