Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a window xp home edition computer that i cannot use. I did a avast virus scan and deleted infected files instead of moving then to a virus chest and now all I can do is sign on and it automatically signs off. Is there anything I can do? Or is it completely broken. I am not on that computer now.

What you are seeing is typical of a Virtumonde virus that is going around at the moment. What you need to do is scan your machine with Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, but obviously if you are being logged out so quickly that you can't do the scans then you need to try something else first.
You could try a repair install, if you have your original Windows install disk follow the instructions on the web page to the letter:

If you can get your machine up and running again in this way try these two free scanners:

7. now plug your ADSL cable back
8. update avast by right click on the icon. Choose Updating-> iAVS update.
9. after update finish, right click on AVAST icon. Start avast Antivirus

14. 2nd box. ignore delete or move for system files.
15. click schedule.
16. pc will reboot, and start scanning n removing all infected files and folders.

all infected files will be deleted.

if you computer is very infected and you are not able to install the 2 antivirus i told, then do it on
another computer which is not infected. Then you will have to remove your hard disk from your computer and place it in the other one and do the scanning.
the USB antivirus is very useful you can install it in any computer you have it will protect you from autorun. it scan all usb and flash card also.

Avast also is a good antivirus which you can use.

i also suggest you to backup all your files, document, photos,etc.. after scanning. cause sometime you might get some error from windows. so backup and reinstall a fresh windows.

dont forget to reinstall the USB antivirus after.

GOODLUCK

Help me..whats going on with windows xp home edition


When installing a new operating system, all file saved will be deleted. Since you've lost all data, you might as well format the entire drive, and then reinstall the vista inspirat thing. Then, download an Avast! anti virus form avast.com. Download the home version, which is free and scan the computer for any viruses. Delete every last one of the suckers.
