My computer is enfected the virus,how to delete this virus


first you need to know the name of the file that is on your that your anti-virus app tells you the name. then if your anti virus app cannot remove the file you can try to enter your computer in safe mode do a file search for the name of the file on your computer then delete it and flush your recycle bin.
however, if you do not have an anti virus then what makes you think that you have a virus on your computer? you may have spyware on your computer instead and anti virus apps can see the bug but cannot remove them! so this is why you need both an anti virus app and an anit spyware app to keep your computer clean.
if you have internet access there are 2 free anti virus and anti spyware apps that you download all you have to do is register them online with a valid e-mail account and get them for free! AVG is a good anti virus and Spybot search and destroy is a good anit spyware and they are both free.

Tip

VIRUS


The Computer Virus.

Firstly lets understand 1 thing, Virus, Worms, Trojans, Malware, Adware, Spyware etc are different things!!.

A Virus ,, think of it as a program set to do malicious things without your consent.

Antivirus is used to remove a virus. There are different types of antivrus and people rate them differently. Some prefer this ,, some that,, I prefer AVG cause its free :). Any way to the point of this tip.!!

Here is what you dont know about an anti virus. This program will only detect a virus it knows about,, that's why u need regular updates!!! If it doesn't know a virus exist It will never find it. So any antivirus is only as good as it's updates!!.

How does it remove a virus ?

Simple! A virus usually alters the registry, renames a few files, injects it self in others and copies its own files to replace those it renamed. It Keeps itself in memrory and limits the users access to the computer.

The antivirus update contains the checksum of the virus so the antivirus app can detect it. Once found ,, the update also contains info on what the virus does ,, so the antivirus undoes it!..]

There it is quite simple. Remember your antivirus is only as good as it's updates!!

When I open 1 file in microsoft excel 9 sheets will be open, 8 of them are virus, how will I clean it?


What you desperately need is an Anti Virus software. There are many AV software that are teeming up the market place. The software that are known to be standards in the Anti virus industry are McAfe, Norton, Symentec, Bit Defender, Kaspersy, NOD32 etc. but if you want something as good as these but free than Download it from the following link
AVG Antivirus Free Edition

http://free.avg.com/ww-en/homepage

After you install it Make sure you Update it. It updates itself automatically also. Make sure it does for future also.

Good Luck!

How i can protect my pc from virus.pls help me


To protect your computer system from viruses, you should install an updated anti virus. I recommend you to use full version of avast antivirus or AVG 8. Scan your computer and when viruses are detected, delete those infected files and viruses found from the virus vault. Also manually update it. Don't forget to install only one antivirus on your system. Installing more than one antivirus may clash down your system.

Upgrading to AVG 8 from the 7.5 purchased version


Hi Collin there are several likely possibilities:

1) AVG keeps an extensive black lists of compromised
serial numbers.

These are numbers that have been published on the internet,
or numbers that have been associated with too many different
IP addresses during the download of automatic updates.

If a black listed serial number is detected during the daily
update sequence, Grisoft will send you a Trojan update
which disables your product.

2) A black listed serial number from the original installation,
may also propagate to any updates installed over the
top of it.

3) Also, AVG has become the target of many viruses, root kits
and Trojans that have found a way to hack it, remove it and
even prevent it from being re-installed, including many
"beagle" varieties.

4) AVG will not detect nor identify these viruses, even if you
manually find and scan the file.

AVG will however identify many false positives, as well as
most key generators designed to crack it (AVG).

5) The first thing you can do is contact AVG and complain
loudly in Czech or English. Their head office (Grisoft)
is in Brno in the Czech Republic.

6) Scan your machine with another product (!!!), including:

Rootkit Revealer (Free from Winternals/Mark Russinowich)
Black light (Trial ware from F-Secure)
Kaspersky
McAfee
Norton
etc.

I have had my AVG installation hacked by malware at least
a dozen times in the last year, so I no longer trust it. I still
use it, but I use a multitude of other products ad well.

Use only well known and reputable (brand name) products,
beware of hundreds of ROGUE scanners out there that are
themselves viruses and try to milk you for money.

7) Keep in mind that NO anti-malware product detects
everything, not even close, so you are fighting a loosing
battle.

8) Once you are reasonably confident that your machine is
clean, by using other products, totally remove AVG and
re-install it.

Isn't it ironic that you have to clean your machine BEFORE
you can install the ANTIVIRUS ?!!!


9) If you can't get your legit serial to work, do what all honest
angry customers do.

Go to a crack site, get yourself a bogus serial or a key
generator (check it for viruses with another product, not
AVG), Install AVG plus the current updates, before number
gets black-listed, and then DISABLE the automatic updates
in AVG as well as the Windows Scheduler Service.

BTW. Keep your key generator on a CD, because AVG
may detect it as a virus, and try to destroy it.

Martin


PS
If your software is legit, but the serial does NOT work, then:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
www.mscracks.com used to be the best site for serials,
but their domain name expired about a week ago, so I don't
know what gives.

crackspider is another one.
also try: Pirate Bay

Always disable scripts in your Firefox, before
visiting these sites, some may try to hack your
computer.

Please help me please...


i think there was one more virus called smss.exe with those 1 s in your system have a check ...
i think now also smss.exe file is attacked by virus in your system ...
those are trojan viruses ....
if you delete those ones also it will not go .... it will just multiply ...
if you insert pen drive in to pc then that virus will get attacked to your pen drive too ...

download some good trojan remover and then remove all viruses ...

some operating system files have got corrupted just reinstall the windows XP ...
make reinstall after removing virus only ...
or if you have the linux live cd then boot from that cd then delete those files and then reinstall XP ..

you cant install the office update from microsoft site because the microsoft office & windows you are using is not the genuine version so microsoft allows to download and apply the updates for the genuine users ....
download some good antivirus like kasperky,norton,mcaffe and install it

any doubts reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye
