I have Windows XP Media Center and I am unable to login. There is a little box that pops up in front of a black screen that is asking me for my user name/domain name and password. I have no idea what that...


Sounds like a virus or phishing program attack. Check with your anti-virus software company to see what they suggest. There is usually a start-up disk that will scan and get past this problem. It may be a fluke software problem with your Operating System too but I would suspect the virus/phishing attack.

I had one where the screen was entirely red with a small black box asking for the same. I fixed this by using start-up disk with anti-virus programming.

Hope this helps!

Tip

Protecting Your Computer from Viruses




Well a computer user mostly afraid and suffers from virus attacks. Virus is the unwanted program that destroys your data and some times also damage the computer.
One of the most common ways of virus attacks is by connecting USB to your computer.
So today I will tell you some tips which can avoid or minimise the chances of virus attacks.
Always keep in mind the following points before connecting a pen drive to your computer.

1. Always use a good antivirus in your system.
2. Never open the pen drive directly.
3. before opening the pen drive, scan the pen drives for finding the possible viruses in the pen drive.
To scan the pen drive go to My Computer->Right Click on the Pen drive->Click on Scan option(Remember Scan option will only be there if there is any antivirus installed on your system)
4. if any virus found and the antivirus is not able to delete the virus, just safely remove the pen drive from your computer.
5. If no virus is found, do not double click on the pen drive to open.
Always open the pen drive by Right clicking on the pen drive and then clicking the explore i.e.:
My Computer->Right click on pen drive->Click on Explore
6. Always beware of copying the unwanted files on your computer. Just copy the file which you want. Never do a select all, copy all thing. Just copy the item you wanted, and paste into your computer.
While pasting the data you should never paste it on C drive (Drive that contains your operating system). Always copy data in a separate drive then C drive.

So these are some small steps which can be very useful to avoid virus attacks...

Fone keeps ringing when no one calling


I had this problem, and fixed it (and the dreadful battery life) by upgrading the firmware. If you have some tech know-how, and are confident, then head over to here and read all about it:

If not, you might have luck popping into your local phone shop.

Be warned; back up all your contacts and photos, etc. before you do this (I lost all of my phone contacts).

Removing w32.virut.cf virus


Try the free version of Malwarebytes
If you have issues installing it, try renaming the file and then renaming the main .exe after it's installed. Some viruses and trojans can recognize the file name and prevent it from installing/running. Also try safe mode to install and run a full scan.

This might be the effect of some spyware or virus attack.
