If this a genuine antivirus programme, then when you start the notebook, keep pressing F8, this will load up windows in safe mode and not allow any viruses or trojans to run.

When the options appear on screen, choose start windows with VGA mode by highlighting it then press enter, you may be asked the operating system, just choose it as it's shown.

A load of driver files then run on the screen, then it tells you that your in safe mode and to continue.

You will then see your account and an administrators account, click this then your desktop will load, although the icons will be larger, then run you anti virus programme.

If this is a free antivirus programme off the net then you may well have actually installed a virus by doing so, i would only recommend using AVG Free version 8, as this is genuine.

you can get it here if required

Files which have saved in my pen drive , are not displayed


this mean your pen drive infected by virus, at my experience your file not lost but just the virus hidden your file and change the file attribut as system, and because of that your computer not show your file
scan your pen drive using anti virus, i usually use smadav anti virus, this is the local antivirus at indonesia (indonesia is my country)
download smadav antivirus at http://smadav.net
after download double click smadav antivirus and click start scan, and this antivirus will show your file that hidden and infected virus, if the scan process finish click fix it for turn your file back shown again
i hope this helpful

Hello,

I think it could be due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, that's why user can't see the files and the space available for use is less than the capacity and also can not open the drive.

  1. It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may show the hidden files. If can not show hidden file (tools >folder option >view> check on show hidden file>check off hide protected and check off hide extension) now can see all hidden file in c drive. If not think......
For ensure again

If you don't have any vital data on the drive, just format it in another pc.Please note, before insert the
Pen drive .Go to run command from start menu OR Press Win key+R and type gpedit.msc and hit >Usser configuration>system>turn off auto play >eneble >use down arrow key seclect all drive >apply >ok.

How to remove trojan horse virus in usb 2gb


Connect USB drive to USB port.When icons appears in My Computer, right click on it. A popup menu appears showing option for virus scan.By clicking on it scan the entire drive.
But dont ever open that USB drive, if there is a possible trojan. because when you will open that USB drive, the trojan will be copied into your hard drive automatically.
Best way to remove trojan is to completely format your USB drive.

A New problem I face with mcafee Antivirus 8.5.0.i


I agree. Re imaging or reinstalling the windows operating system seems like the only fix at this point since it seems like the anti virus isn't picking up the virus. Back up the files on an external hard drive and just reinstall windows.

Hi Umesh,

Firstly i'll give u a command which might help u sort out the issue.

1. Open up start menu and click run and type "regsvr32 C:\windows\system32\zipfldr.dll /u" and click ok. ( I did this because sometimes your pc will be saying ur cpu usage is 100% and your harddisk space will be shown as full, typing that command will fix that)

2 . If the first step didnt help you. Insert your windows Xp cd and reboot. boot with the cd and then go to your recovery console and type "expand d:\i386\regsvr32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\regsvr32.exe


Follow those 2 steps and let me know if that doesnt help. I'll be happy to help you out.
