The pen drive indicates write protected and does not allow to write new files.


Three possible sources for this problem, and three separate solutions.
The following procedures assume your flash drive is assigned by MSDOS to drive E:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM 1: Pen drive write-protect switch set
SOLUTION: move the tiny switch on the pen drive from the icon of a padlock locked
toward the icon of a padlock unlocked
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM 2: MSDOS attribute set incorrectly on any/all files on pen drive
HOW TO DISPLAY CURRENT SETTING: START > Run... > cmd
C:\> E:
E:\> attrib /S /D

HOW TO FIX WRITE-PROTECTION PROBLEM: START > Run... > cmd
C:\> E:
E:\> attrib -r /S /D
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM 3: REGISTRY set incorrectly (targeted by virus or other malware)
HOW TO DISPLAY CURRENT SETTING: START > Run...> cmd
regedit
display HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\ CurrentControlSet\Control \StorageDevicePolicies

The valid values for this are 0=Disabled (meaning READ/WRITE), and 1=Enabled (READ only)
HOW TO FIX WRITE-PROTECTION PROBLEM: START > Run... > cmd
regedit
set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
to a value of 0 (Disabled)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A fourth way to "Fix" the write-protection problem would be to reFORMAT the flash drive, but
this "solution" merely resets the ATTRIB characteristic of the top-level directory of the
flash drive (while erasing all files on the flash drive), which is done better with the ATTRIB command,
and completely fails to address the possible write-protect switch or Registry issues.

How protect my pc from virus and what is the best antivirus software


In order to protect your computer from different viruses and other malicious things that can get in to your computer is to install some security software like anti virus and anti malware software. For a good anti virus that is free you can go to Avast or Avira they are free and do always update the database with the latest update and can protect your computer always.
For additional security on your computer you can also use this software for malware removal its called Malwarebytes. All of this software are free and they work great for me and you can download them from download.com.

My computer started up normally, then nothing.


Hi,

It sounds like you have a virus riddled computer as well as no Anti virus protection either.

Try and get your desktop back this way >>>>>

Start task manager, in the top right hand corner of the window you will see File, click on that. Where it say's new task (Run), click on that and type in the box explorer and then hit the enter key.

Hopefully your desktop icons and task bar will return.

If they do return you will need to obtain some anti virus software.


You can get AVG 9 Free here >>>>>>>>





http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11014801






Download and install this excellent free software and then perform a deep scan of the system for any and all viruses, malware and spyware.




If you can't get the desktop icons to return post back here straight away and tell me what operating system you are using, like XP, Win 2000/98 for example.


Good luck.

Can't get rid of McAfee popup


Start->Setting->Control Panel->Add/Remove Software
and un-install McAfee software
There should be two or three McAfee related software. After the un-install the software, the popup will be gone!

By the way, it is always safer to have an active Anti Virus protection.
