A virus can make life very difficult and confuse the heck out of you. What I recommend is to download the free version of Malwarebytes first here;
http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Click on "download free version" and allow to run. Click on "next , "allow", "continue", etc., until finished. You will either be prompted to restart or, it will run a quick scan right away. If it does not run the free scan immediately then restart. When the system comes back up, it will either then perform the quick scan or, click on your "Malwarebytes" icon and, in the screen that appears, click on and run "quick scan" When finished it will ask to make necessary repairs, allow this. Later you will want to run the full scan but we will get to that.
You can download a free version of software here;
http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
Scroll down to Free anti virus "green" download box and click on it. Click , next, allow, continue, etc., until download is finished. You will then be instructed to restart or run a scan. Follow recommended proceedures. When all is doine, you will want to adjust your settings to suit your needs, such as: daily scan, weekly scan, etc. I recommend a daily scan scheduled to run at a time when you are away from computer.
OK. At your earliest convienience, I would double click on the Malwarebytes icon and run a full scan. This will take a few hours but, is necessary. at the end let it make necessary repairs.

Try booting into safe mode with networking (press F8 just after the bios prompt screen goes away). If the virus still loads, you may need to press Ctrl + Alt + Del and kill processes that shouldn't be running.
Once you get a usable environment, download hyjackthis and remove any startup entries that you donn't need (be careful, you can break stuff if you don't know what you're doing). http://www.trendmicro.com/ftp/products/hijackthis/HijackThis.exe
Then download and update malwarebytes and run a full system scan: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button
Then try running a full antivirus scan if your AV program will run in safe mode. I'd also recommend running a Live disc from another antivirus vender (you can get a list of the major ones at: http://www.askvg.com/download-free-bootable-rescue-cds-from-kaspersky-bitdefender-avira-f-secure-and-others/ ).
After the virus scans reboot to regular windows and run registry cleaner programs like ccleaner: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
That should get a lot of the common viruses out there. Unfortunately the only way to make sure you get them all is to wipe the drive and reinstall windows.
Please leave feedback if you found this helpful. Thanks.

Here is what an 1102 error is and what some of the things to look for are.. hope it helps..

1102 SMB(SMB)

Error: User/Password or SharedName/FolderNameDomain name not entered as Domain UserInput
User Name with one of the form "Domain\User", "Domain/User", "User@Domain"SMB)

Check access limit for send destination folderSpecify invalid Shared NameInput correct Shared Name

(See the reference for the symbol which is possible to use for Shared Name)Host Name ErrorCheck if any prohibited letter (see the reference) for Host Name is included or notSCAN TO EMAIL(SCAN TO EMAIL)

User Name/Password ErrorUser ID for Authentication is not entered/entered wrong User ID

Wrong Password for Authentication is enteredInput User ID/Password which is used for Authentication from [Advanced] on Command Center correctly

([Login User Name] on [POP3] page or [SMTP] page)

It's actually related with SMB.

A restart of the samba service may repair

What is the traditional methods of family planning practices


1. Spend time by yourself on the computer, while your spouse is alone in the bedroom.

2. Live in different houses / cities / countries.

3. Keep his plums-and-bat away from her groove-tube.

4. Like a bad home-repair wanna-be, never finish the job on the site. Delay, delay, delay, and finish the work in a different place.

5. Hold the laptop between your knees.

6. Always buy PC laptops, not a Mac laptop -- you'll spend all your time updating it, squashing viruses, and removing the bugs.

NEED ADMIN. PASSWORD!!!


Hi There my name is Nick .
the best way for "recover " an administrators password is to use a program like Ophcrack which can be downloaded from http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/gr/ophcrack.htm
You will need to burn the ISO image onto a CD then boot from the CD and then "point it" to your windows directory. It will then work its magic and give you the password

Hope this helps and should you have any problems please let me know

How to configure samba server


Hi satveergaur

Follow these instruction to configure samba server

To configure Samba using a graphical interface, use the Samba Server Configuration Tool.

The Samba Server Configuration Tool is a graphical interface for managing Samba shares, users, and basic server settings. It modifies the configuration files in the /etc/samba/ directory. Any changes to these files not made using the application are preserved.

To use this application, you must be running the X Window System, have root privileges, and have the redhat-config-samba RPM package installed. To start the Samba Server Configuration Tool from the desktop, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => System Settings => Server Settings => Samba or type the command redhat-config-samba at a shell prompt (for example, in an XTerm or a GNOME terminal).



 Samba Server Configuration Tool



Note
The Samba Server Configuration Tool does not display shared printers or the default stanza that allows users to view their own home directories on the Samba server.

 Configuring Server Settings

The first step in configuring a Samba server is to configure the basic settings for the server and a few security options. After starting the application, select Preferences => Server Settings from the pulldown menu. The Basic tab is displayed as shown in Figure 24-2.



 Configuring Basic Server Settings

On the Basic tab, specify which workgroup the computer should be in as well as a brief description of the computer. They correspond to the workgroup and server string options in smb.conf.



 Configuring Security Server Settings

The Security tab contains the following options:


Authentication Mode — This corresponds to the security option. Select one of the following types of authentication.


ADS — The Samba server acts as a domain member in an Active Directory Domain (ADS) realm. For this option, Kerberos must be installed and configured on the server, and Samba must become a member of the ADS realm using the net utility, which is part of the samba-client package. Refer to the net man page for details. This option does not configure Samba to be an ADS Controller.

Domain — The Samba server relies on a Windows NT Primary or Backup Domain Controller to verify the user. The server passes the username and password to the Controller and waits for it to return. Specify the NetBIOS name of the Primary or Backup Domain Controller in the Authentication Server field.

The Encrypted Passwords option must be set to Yes if this is selected.

Server — The Samba server tries to verify the username and password combination by passing them to another Samba server. If it can not, the server tries to verify using the user authentication mode. Specify the NetBIOS name of the other Samba server in the Authentication Server field.

Share — Samba users do not have to enter a username and password combination on a per Samba server basis. They are not prompted for a username and password until they try to connect to a specific shared directory from a Samba server.

User — (Default) Samba users must provide a valid username and password on a per Samba server basis. Select this option if you want the Windows Username option to work. Refer to Section 24.2.1.2 Managing Samba Users for details.

Encrypt Passwords — This option must be enabled if the clients are connecting from a Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3, or other more recent versions of Microsoft Windows. The passwords are transfered between the server and the client in an encrypted format instead of in as a plain-text word that can be intercepted. This corresponds to the encrypted passwords option. Refer to Section 24.2.3 Encrypted Passwords for more information about encrypted Samba passwords.

Guest Account — When users or guest users log into a Samba server, they must be mapped to a valid user on the server. Select one of the existing usernames on the system to be the guest Samba account. When guests logs in to the Samba server, they have the same privileges as this user. This corresponds to the guest account option.

After clicking OK, the changes are written to the configuration file and the daemon is restart; thus, the changes take effect immediately.

 Managing Samba Users

The Samba Server Configuration Tool requires that an existing user account be active on the system acting as the Samba server before a Samba user can be added. The Samba user is associated with the existing user account.


To add a Samba user, select Preferences => Samba Users from the pulldown menu, and click the Add User button. On the Create New Samba User window select a Unix Username from the list of existing users on the local system.

If the user has a different username on a Windows machine and will be logging into the Samba server from the Windows machine, specify that Windows username in the Windows Username field. The Authentication Mode on the Security tab of the Server Settings preferences must be set to User for this option to work.

Also configure a Samba Password for the Samba User and confirm the Samba Password by typing it again. Even if you select to use encrypted passwords for Samba, it is recommended that the Samba passwords for all users are different from their system passwords.

To edit an existing user, select the user from the list, and click Edit User. To delete an existing Samba user, select the user, and click the Delete User button. Deleting a Samba user does not delete the associated system user account.

The users are modified immediately after clicking the OK button.

Starting and Stopping the Server

On the server that is sharing directories via Samba, the smb service must be running.

View the status of the Samba daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb status


Start the daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb start


Stop the daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb stop


To start the smb service at boot time, use the command: /sbin/chkconfig --level 345 smb on

TheAssembler
