I myself prefer to use Avast! anti-virus. For me it has located viruses that others like AVG and Norton could not. Uninstall all other and give it a try. It can't hurt. It has a nice bott scan too that runs before all the other processes. Hope it helps

Cant download antivirus


Please advise what OS you are using and what antivirus you are attempting to download, and the URL you are trying to download it from. This will allow people to help you more efficiently.

In the mean time I can suggest that often malware infections will prevent a computer from downloading cures/solutions such as anti-virus software. If you suspect you have an infection, this could be the cause of the anti-virus download failure.

In such cases it is recommended you use a bootable CD to try and clear these infections, such as Avira rescue CD, Avira rescue CD can be downloaded here:

Download Avira Rescue System

However this may be difficult to download on an infected machine, so I would recommend you use an alternative machine that is fully functional to download the bootable CD image.

If i have a virus on my computer and I format my C drive..that might help to get rid of it right?


You are right, but if it didn't infect only your C drive, then you are still not 100% secured and cleaned. I would suggest you to run full system scan using an updated antivirus program. There are many free antivirus programs which are very effective. You can try Avira Free (click HERE to download). Scanning will take time, but it's better to waste time than wasting data and having a virus infected computer.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My computer is showing me an alert about viruses and it just keeps popping up how do i remove the viruses


If you have an Antivirus installed, run a scan on your entire Hard Drive, and with any luck it will find and correct the problem.

If not you should install an Antivirus program and after it is installed get the latest updates for it and then restart your computer and then do a complete scan of your Hard Drives.

many viruses today prevent you from installing an Antivirus program once they have penetrated your computer some do not even allow you to visit the common web pages of common antivirus companies. if this is the case download the McAfee Stinger, this is a stand alone scanner, and let it scann your complete hard drive. Hopefully it will find any viruses and correct the problem. Afterwards DEFINATLY install some kind of virus protection.

Here a link for McAfee Stinger:
http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/

Here a link for Avira a freeware Antivirus Program:
http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus

if none of these steps work you should save all of your important data to another drive or USB and reinstall your windows. once again installing an antivirus program directly afterwards.

hope I was able to help

Just bought a hp mini and now has a virus infection. What do we do??


If its possible to burn disc, back the essential data first.
Dont use flash memory/USB device for this purpose. Virus spreads though them easily.

If the infection is small, u might be able to install some good antivirus software like McAfee or Kaspersky [my suggestion] and do a complete scan.

If the antivirus virus fails, the only way out is to re install the operating system. Backup the data first...

After reinstallation u still need antivirus software.
Donot open any drives further.
Install it from a CD.
then erase all drives except C drive[where u installed ur OS]- full erase by right clicking on the drive icon and selecting format option [dont perform quick erase]
Then do a scan to remove any malicious items...

Read this again b4 u proceed. All the best...
Hope this helped

DVD-RW optical drive not working properly


The two symptoms could be attributed to a viral activity. Some viruses will disable your CD/dvd burner for the reasons you cannot make a backup copy with your important files.

I suggest, it is safer to scan your harddrive using another clean computer with a good antivirus and malware remover.

Even I too experienced that everytime when you access cmd,msconfig,task manager, sytem restore, registry editor there's some kind of counter. Until you reach the number of times you access that it will release its destructive job. For me it also block me of using USB, even floppy.

Commonly this is a Vundo activity. Many free antivirus can disinfect this. Disinfecting directly from its own hard drive. But the risk of your important files is the priority that is why I suggest to it using another computer. But it is your call.

I recommend Avira, malwarebytes antimalware. Install, update then scan. And still check your DVD burner for hardware defect.

I think this should be enough. Just ask again.

Reinstalled os and now pc runs slow, network card does not work?


The 4 top anti-virus on planet,
G-Data
Avira
Kaspersky
Norton 2009

If you where running AVG, get rid of it as it is garbage, it is 21 out of top 20 virus software. You can download a free repair tool from Avira
also that is run is dos(before windows starts) and you would not have to reinstall the OS.

As for your drivers, just go to the mfg site and you can get all the drivers you need for the hardware on your system.
