Glad to HELP YOU!

Well, it depends on what kind of AntiVirus software you do have installed on your machine.
Some like Kaspersky or BitDefender are tagging many files as being "viruses" EVEN they are not harmfully!
Just go in the VAULT of your AntiVirus software and see the file; if it souns "familiar" (like a driver or an executable file) and you trust it just choose IGNORE and you will "bypass" the "virus alert".
But if looks "odd" and "unfamiliar" just run a SYSTEM CHECK with your AntiVirus. You will never know.
Always remember where you have been taking your files from! If are UNTRUSTED web sites it's a rule of thumb to scan such files!

GOOD LUCK!

Steps to remove Virus Alert that comes on system tray


There are several different types of viruses and malwares getting produced day by day. One such virus produces a label “Virus Alert” on the system tray besides the clock which keeps blinking. When we click on it then some site gets opened that displays virus and spyware remover software.

38166ce.jpg If these things has happened to you as well then your system has been hijacked!! But you need not worry as we can clean the system easily.
Steps to remove the virus:
1. First of all it is advisable to remove all the temporary files and history files. You can find these in the C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp folder. Delete the history from the internet properties.
2. Now to restore the system completely, we need to download a HijackThis script that will give the listing of all the processes that are running in the system which are also the prime suspects.
3. When you run the script, it will give you all the infected files. Once the infected file is found, you just need to delete the file. You may need to restart the system.
Steps to restore the system tray:
1. Virus Alert comes when the following value has been replaced with “Virus Alert”
sTimeFormat=h:mm: VIRUS ALERT!
in the registry
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International
2. To restore this go to start -> Run and type “intl.cpl” without quotes.
3. This will open a “Regional Settings properties” dialog box.
4. Now from the dropdown list under “standards and formats” tab re-select the region by selecting another region first and then selecting your Region again.
5. After hitting Apply, the problem would have gone.

What is a virus alert


Well, a virus alert is *not* anything to do with chains and rope... which is the section you posted your question to.

A virus alert can be many things. It could be coming from your anti-virus program, and warning you that it stopped a virus from infecting your system. There are also "fake" antivirus alerts, where a site tries to get you to buy their malware by telling you you're infected with a virus.

You have to be careful and know what you're doing. The best thing is to get a trusted anti-virus program and keep it updated. I like Kaspersky Avast, and Vipre. Kaspersky is often available free after rebate.

A Sign appear every 3 minuts from Security Center Alert. Windows Firewall has blocked some features of the program. HELP.


I am convinced that you have a virus called "FAKE ALERT". Download and install "Malwarebytes" run the program and it should take care of the virus. After that, run Disk Check Scan from windows to repair the windows damages and correct filing system errors. GOOD LUCK!! Lucky4lynn2

Virus


Hello there southside201 I am happy to help you out with your problems because its very easy. BUT i have to alert you. if you know that your mp3 has a virus that means your PC must have it as well. And if you insert your mp3 into the PC and it doesnt alert you about the virus, the virus might lead to the fatal end of your PC. but don`t worry all you should do is insert your mp3 into your PC and go to "www.bitdefender.com" and click on the scan now tab and get rid of all your viruses. If you do have a reliable antivrius insert your mp3 to the PC and scan it then the virus will be deleted. hope i helped bye!
