You have to uninstall your antivirus and try again. If it works then you need to install a different antivirus program.

Disk drive may be failing or my disk won't boot


Many times before a hard drive goes completely bad there are tell tale signs. If you can recognize them, there is a good chance that the data on the drive can be saved. The window of time in which action will be useful is quite small. Other than trying to fix the problem do not use the failing computer disk as you can just make the problem worse. <br /> What are the signs to look out for? While there are few surefire signs of impending disk failure there are some warning signals that give us the hint. Watch out for: disappearing files, very long wait while accessing files, files/folders whose contents appear to be strangely scrambled, reoccurring error messages while moving/copying/deleting/creating files, and strange but frequent crashes of your OS. If your computer will not boot saying that it cannot find the boot disk or other messages similar, the boot sector may be corrupt. <br /> Another telltale sign is any loud, low, irregular, clicking, or grinding sound which is emitted from the drive. This is the worst problem as your data and the disk are almost gone. <br /> What to do? Download on a friends computer and create a bootable CD from one of these manufactures:<a href="http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=seatooldreg&vgnextoid=480bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD"> Seatools</a> from Seagate,<span> the <span><a href="http://support.wdc.com/download/dlg/Diag504fCD.iso">Data Lifeguard tools</a></span> from Western Digital or <a href="http://www.hitachigst.com/support/downloads/">Drive Fitness Tool</a> from Hitachi.</span> <br /> <ul> <li>You must use a CD burning program (such as Nero Burning Rom or EZ-CD Creator) to burn a CD from the .ISO image.</li></ul> <br /> Using the CD, boot the problem system. Make sure the BIOS is set to boot from the CD drive first, not the hard disk. Follow the manufactures instructions to test your disk. Do not let the program write all zeros to the disk or format the disk as you will loose all your data. <br /> With luck, the program will repair any corrupt indexes. <br /> Remove the CD and attempt to do a normal boot. If you can then boot into your desktop, immediately backup any data as the fix may be short lived. <br /> If you don't have a CD drive, then you'll need to try using a bootable USB which is another topic.

Antivirus 2009 and 2010 Scam


If you have seen any of these popups shown below, on your computer, you have been infected with a fake antivirus. Not only is it fake, but it tries to force you to buy it, which is illegal and is considered fraud by authorities.
This program and it's many variants, take over administrative control of your PC, disable Task Manager, and regedit as well as replacing your desktop wallpaper with their fake warning. Well, it WOULD be fake, if this program weren't a Virus program all by itself.


Quoted From Bleepingcomputer.com


What this programs does:
Antivirus 2009 is a new rogue (Fake) anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus 2008 and Doctor Antivirus . Antivirus 2009 is installed and advertised through the use of misleading web sites that attempt to make you think your computer is infected with a variety of malware. Once installed, Antivirus 2009 will scan your computer and list a variety of fake infections that can't be removed unless you first purchase the software. These fake infections are only being shown to scare you into purchasing the malware.
When Antivirus 2009 is installed, a Internet Explorer browser helper object is also installed that displays fake messages when using Internet Explorer. These messages range from a line at the top of the browser stating an infection was found to adding a box to the Google homepage stating Google detected that your computer was infected. These tactics are just two more methods where Antivirus 2009 uses false information to scare you into purchasing their software.

Antivirus 2010 looks almost the same as 2008 and 2009.

Antivirus 2010
is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus 2008 and Antivirus 2009. Like its previous incarnations, Antivirus 2010 is distributed through the use of advertisements on the Web pretending to be online anti-malware scanners. These advertisements pretend to scan your computer and then state that your computer is infected and that you should download and install Antivirus 2010 to remove these infections. These rogues are also known to be advertised and installed through Trojans that display fake security alerts in your Windows taskbar stating you are infected. Once you click on one of these alerts, it will bring you to the download page for Antivirus 2010, or even download and install it without your permission.
Once Antivirus 2010 is installed on your computer, it will be automatically configured to run when you logon to Windows. This is done by adding a startup that launches the C:WindowsSystem32wingamma.exe executable. This executable will then launch the AV2010.exe and the fake Windows Security Center. Once running, it will scan your computer and list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the software. This infection will also randomly display fake security alerts on your computer stating that you are infected or have some sort of security risk. If you click on these alerts, it will prompt you to purchase the software. These fake alerts, along with a fake Windows Security Center that advertises Antivirus 2010, are used to further scare you into thinking you are infected so you will purchase this malware.
Another new addition to these types of rogues, is the creation of a fake Blue Screen of Death. At random intervals, Antivirus 2010 will create what appears to be a Windows crash, but in reality is just a hoax. These fake crashes are used to further scare you into purchasing this malware. If you receive this crash, you can simply reboot your computer , or try pressing Alt-Tab or Control-Alt-Delete to get out of it. The text of the crash is:
***STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000, 0xF73120AE, 0xC0000008, 0xC000000)
A spyware application has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
SPYWARE.MONSTER.FX_WILD_0x0000000
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Click to make sure your antivirus software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your software manufacturer for any antivirus updates you might need.
Windows detected unregistered version of Antivirus 2010 protection on your computer. If problem continue, please activate your antivirus software to prevent computer damage and data loss.
*** SRV.sys - Address F73120AE base at C0000000, DateStamp 36b072a3


END QUOTE HERE:


As you can see, all of this looks so very legitimate, as well it should, since THESE particular crooks have taken malware to a whole new level.
Yes, they will get caught, they always do.


The real difference here is that these particular scammers have decided to strong arm you much like a mobster demanding protection money, so the crime as well as the consequences will be much more severe.


The GOOD news though, is that even if you are infected at this very moment with this nasty program, you will be able to remove it before you reboot your PC and come back to Fixya!


Download and run, Malwarebytes Anti malware.
Don't forget to update it first though, just in case the fake antivirus has changed its nature to evade detection.
So far, this is the only program I have found to eliminate this problem, but I'm pretty sure others will follow the same path.


Follow up with Avast Antivirus, if you want something stronger than what others pay hard cash for at the store. Dont forget to uninstall your current Antivirus first, after all, it did fail to kill Antivirus 2010 didn't it?




Happy Hunting!

I have an older Dell 8100 that is infected, I cannot use it.


It might be really what it says, but chances are you have accidentally started a "fake virus scam" malware, that acts a bit like a virus, but with an added function of luring you into paying for some miraculous anti-virus, that will cure your computer of the multiple "infections" it has allegedly "discovered".
If you can open Internet Explorer, you may try one of the online virus scanners available. If not, the only thing left is to prepare on a clean computer a startup antivirus CD, from which you could boot your computer and run an antivirus program.

Free Online scanners:

The most likely explanation is that your computer has been infected and subverted, and the virus it already has onboard is able to detect and thwart your attempt to download an antivirus.

You need to download an "antivirus boot CD" on another computer, burn it to CD-ROM there, and boot your infected PC from that. Then the virus won't be able to awaken, and you should be able to disinfect it.

Find a list of available CD sources here:

...but the most important thing you need is access to another, clean PC (some internet cafés will, for a fee, allow you to download and burn a CD from the internet).

I received a bluescreen with message turn off


It sounds like you have a virus.

try and start the computer in Safe Mode just hit your reset button and then Press F5 before windoze starts.

select "Start Safe Mode with Networking"

Update your antivirus program and Try to run another antivirus scan.

If that doesnt work, you need to do this........When Windows crashes, it writes a system event 1001 and a minidump to the folder\
\windows\minidump Check system event 1001 and it has the content of the blue screen

Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001.

Copy the content and email it to me at clb199@yahoo.com

Hi

The ISO files need to be burned into a cd with a special program. Please use this software. http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm

Next, the reason why you are getting the error message is because the computer is not starting from the cd, or the cd was burned incorrectly.

The computer is most likely starting from the hard drive instead and since it's formatted you get the error message.

To get the computer to start from the cd instead and to install the system again, you need to adjust the boot order.

The laptop might have a Boot menu feature (look at the screen right when you power it on and see if it says anywhere press xx key to enter Boot menu) If you don't have the boot menu option then you need to enter setup or bios, same thing different name.

The computer will say at some part of the screen to press xx button to enter setup or bios / cmos.

In Bios you must adjust the boot order so that the Cd / dvd drive is before the hard drive in the order. this way the computer will start from the cd instead of trying the hard drive.

Here are a few good tutorial videos on the subject of changing the boot order.

boot order at middle and towards end of video.

Let me know if the problem is not solved or if you need further assistance.

Thank you,
