Hello barbaralacap
Use a good antivirus combined with a malware killer . If you are looking for free sruff , you can try these two :

and this one :

Both are easy to install and are efficient .

How to remove virus


First of, your question is a tricky question.
There are many anti-virus programmes on the net. Free and pay. Things to keep in mind is virus come first than the anti-virus comes out. Virus programmers are always looking for weakness in a system and they write a virus for many purposes. Other annoying facts is even if the virus was killed or out of the programme, it is very hard to fix anything they have damaged. So, you have to keep in mind even though you successfully killed a virus you still need to fix damage it has cause. That is why IT people always recommend to back up your data, format your HDD and reinstall windows and the programmes you are using.
Said that, now let's get to the virus problem.
Free anti-viruses:
1. AVG
2. AVAST
3. Avira
4. McFee

Others
1. Norton
2. Microsoft - ForeFront, Security Essential (comes with Windows license version.)
3. Kespersky

The above anti-viruses are good in their own ways. As said before you need fixes, patches to fix the damage. They also have fixes once the virus has been identified. Check out their websites by google searching.

Good luck mate.

540 wont boot up


The hard drive could be corrupt, this will cause the operating system to run the error checking. If you had a virus, and it infected any windows files, windows will check the files, but if it can\'t fix them, then it won;t run. You can try to enter safe mode, tapping F8 at boot, you should see a option to repair or restore. If not see if you can enter Safe Mode.

In safe mode you can go to start button, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore.

You can also get a windows install disk, same version as you have, and put in the disk and hit F11, and boot from the disk, and run a repair from it.


You really should go to the website Avira, and download the rescue disk, burn it to a CD. This will run a virus scan of the hard drive before windows in DOS.
If there is a virus, it will kill it. But there is a chance it can\'t clean the virus and windows won\'t start.

The other option is to just erase the hard drive, not format, erase it with a program like Active kill disk. Then reinstall windows, all the drivers.

Not familair with the yaabaa virus/spyware but usually this error is because your av got rid of the infection but didn't clean up the registry entry. So windows tries to load it and can't find the file so shows the error. So AVg killed it but it didn;t clean up afterwards.

I have a virus I cannot remove from my hard drive


If you can go to Avira.com and download there repair disk,you can put it on a disk or flash drive, it will run before windows starts(dos), you force the lap to boot from the disk. If this is a virus Avira will kill it.
Avira is the 2nd top anti-virus on planet, there free edition is better
than AVG, Avg is 21 out of the top 20 anti-virus.

Yes, if you reinstall windows and delete the drive,install to (C) new raw and format, it will be gone, but a lot of work when you don't need to.

Give steps to remove virus worm found /autorun


Hello install this program from here:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

And reboot after the install is done.
The program will kill the autorun file, when you boot again.

This is also the best free malware/trojan remover available !!!!

Install also a better free antivirus program like this:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download

Please uninstall the old antivirus program, before you install
Microsoft Security Essentials.
Mse it`s not useing so much of the pc`s memory to operate.

Your windows version must be valid, to use Microsoft Security Essentials .

You might have to scan for virus, in failsafe mode by pressing F8, while the pc boots.

Good luck
