If you know where the infected files are you can delete the files and which might speed it up enough to run an Antivirus program. If you can get online and download a program from just search for Antivirus and will come up with a list. Download and install one. Run the scan on Drive C: which it will ask for you to choose. If you have one already installed, then try and run it. It will take really really long(10mins.) to open up. If it doesn't do it by then the PC might freeze up and won't work which will require to turn it off and then on. If you can't do anything with it, chances are you will need to take it to have it repaired.

Let me know if I can be of more assistance to you.

Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.
It would show the hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset. Just select the file or folder and its just as easy to drag and drop to reset all attributes and make the files visible again.(Note that you can reset one folder or file at a time)

Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Windows is not responding. Technical information stop code: (0xc01A000A, 0x81B73000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

Severe Windows corruption - the kernel (the core file) is gone. You will need to recover your files using a Linux Live -CD and reinstall.
This is caused by a very big malware infection, you must use a better antivirus next time.

My computer says I'm missing esapp.dll & ltdis10n.dll. How do I fix that?

This may be due some or all of the following reason: Corrupt file-system, corrupt registry entry, improper/incomplete device driver installation or software installation or may be due to a virus infection.
Make sure you have a backup of important files/photos/documents in your system.
Try repairing you file-system using check disk utility that comes with windows. Repair your registry using a registry tool. Update the device driver or the application. esapp.dll & ltdis10n.dll belongs to Kodak Easy Share application. First completely remove the application and try reinstalling it. Have a full system virus scan with latest virus definition update.
Update your windows system with current patches and fixes using Windows Update utility.
All the best

Emachine t3302 cleanup of many infected files

Well there are a lot of ifs ands or buts. Every infected system should have important files backed up and then the operating system reinstalled. Holes have been punched in the security and may only lead to immediate reinfection. You don't know what ports were opened, what back doors, or modified system files are there, etc. If you need to get it clean first to get important files off. Your best bet is to run a virus scan in safe mode. This wont run the resident viruses as start and allow you to remove the locked files. You should use a program like hijack this to create a log of all running processes and post it so we can look through to see what may still be running and do a more targeted attack with a tool built to remove it. If the OS gets blasted most package system (brands) have restore partitions by pressing F11 or shift+F11 at startup. If your machine doesnt respond to this, you've got to reinstall with windows. In most cases you'll need an OEM windows disk that is the same os as the microsoft tag on the back of the PC, and can just re-use the key printed on the microsoft certificate on the machine. There are many more deep recovery methods you can use such as running a preinstallation envirment such as Bart PE, or using the windows Recovery Console, but those are very advanced, and as your knoweledge grows, should be become part of your aresenal.

All in.
1. get off important files
2. reinstall OS

There is really no safe way to fix, the current OS.

Good luck to you.

Can not remove any programs from system in control panel, when I try the system responds back with setup.exe has encountered a problem and will now be closing


I,d suggest A Virus-Malware et,c.
Run an antivirus software, if it lets you.
If you have also suffered with various pop-ups about security-Alerts et,c.
Then you,ve picked up A Virus-Trojan Horse-Malware et,c.
Run a scan, remove-heal infection et,c.
Failing this, re-install windows over itself, or Repair to replace any deleted/corrupt/missing Operating System Files.

Restting a desktop due to virus or worm

You will have to try to run a removal program on your system before trying to restore it since the bug is probably saved and will reinstall over and over again.
Worst case, you may have to buy an antivirus package or risk losing any or all of your own work.
You absolutely need to install the 'Restricted Sites' list (available at several sites on line) to avoid ending up at dangerous sites such as the one that installed your current problem.
Windows Defender is free (from MS website) and along with an antivirus program will afford you further protection.

Running 'naked' is not an option.
