Head to Lavasoft.com and download their Adaware application (it's free).
I find it uncovers the broadest range of 'adware' and spyware, some malware too.
See how your system recovers after that, then think about a serious virus protection plan going forward. I'm a Norton guy myself but there are other options out there as well.

After installing webroot comp applications does not work


There might be a conflict

Background b> Many personal computers connected to the Internet will more than likely eventually become infected with spyware, malware, viruses or Trojan horses. Such programs spread via spam, bad links or freeware. Once they invade your computer, they can do anything they want, such as disabling your antivirus software, tracking your keystrokes and deleting files. b> About McAfee and Webroot b> McAfee and Webroot are some of the most popular computer security programs. Both companies have features on their programs, such as firewalls and live scans, which prevent future infections. Computer owners, however, should never run two programs since they cause each other to crash. Only one antivirus program should be on a computer at once. b> Spyware Prevention b> Along with using computer security programs, computer owners can prevent infections by browsing the Internet with caution. They should avoid file sharing and ad-laden websites since such websites often harbor spyware. They should also avoid downloading anything without researching it beforehand use as safe a Web browser as possible. If you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager under processes and the applications tabs you will see what is running and ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now or even uninstall it or disable it Hope this helps

Userinit.exe application error


Hi again:

I would suggest that you may have a virus / spyware infection that has infected this windows file.

If you can boot into SAFE Mode ( reboot the computer) and when the screen goes to the black background with white writing start pushing F8 - keep doing so until you get a screen that gives you a list of things you can do -
ie:
restart windows normally
safe mode
safe mode w/networking

use the arrow keys on the keyboard and choose to boot into safe mode.- may take a couple of minutes

once there i would suggest running virus / antispyware scans as well as running a BOOT SCAN (a type of virus scan that scans the hard drive before it gets into windows)

NOTE on running virus/spyware scans - ALWAYS QUARANTINE the file infected - DO NOT DELETE - if you delete a critical windows system file you will cause windows to completely crash and in that instance you would have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall everything.

Someone sent spam email purportedly from me to everyone on my contact list. How can I prevent this from happening again?


Perform an immediate virus scan, your computer may be infected. Hackers get in through malicious links you may have clicked, and this is what results from those hacks.

Also perform malware and spyware scans, either of these can cause an issue such as this as well.

Change your password frequently, make it difficult so a hacker cannot gain access to your account.

Be sure to change your password after performing these scans, otherwise anything on your computer that a hacker will have, they will still have if you change your password prior to the scan.

i think you it is caused by spyware, you might have got it from pop ups. preventing it is not easy and you maybe wondering and asking what is spyware? How to avoid it? Spyware tracks your browsing routine and there are spywares that redirect you to other website. to get rid of this you need to install anti spyware program.

An e mail has been sent to all my addresses i have not sent it how does this happen


You used your E-mail on a computer that was infected with a keylogging virus and now the virus is sending out "spam" mail to everyone associated with your e-mail. Change your email password and scan your personal computer for viruses and spyware. Some good anti-virus/anti-spyware programs to use would be Malwarebytes, Avast!, and SuperAntiSpyware. Also, be careful about what computers you use from now on when you check your e-mail.

maybe you have a malware on your computer. unfortunately some of the antivirus cannot detect some viruses, it happens to me also. but when i try to scan it using kaspersky or other antivirus i have detected viruses that im not even aware of. Or you can try installing a different browser, just to make sure that a virus doesnt infect your browser and display that kind of message.If problem still continues. I suggest reprogramming your pc.

I hope this works;
Thank You :)

When ever my system starts icant get any taskbar or desktopitems


Hi !!

If you are experiencing low performance and your task manager is also disabled then most probably your computer is infected by a virus. Update your antivirus and run complete scan. If you are not using any malware or spyware i'll recommend you to install malwarebytes you can download free version from malwarebytes.org and also install good spyware. Hope that helps

Thanks

Spyware


Download AVG free edition and run it to check for virus and trojan infection. Then run Spybot - also free.

Computer freezes up


Are you using outlook for your mail? You probably have a virus, spyware or both. You need to run a virus scan with either avast antivirus or avg, both free programs. Then download and run adaware personal, also free and look for spyware. Finally download ccleaner for free and use that to do a final cleanup. Your computer will be clean and running much faster. You should also switch to a free web based email like yahoo to avoid more infections.
