Try to download malware fix and it says file not found

Use MS Security Essentials if you don't have an AntiVirus.

Computers virus very much,,i want remove

Download, and install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then.

Use the free version, and kick those viruses to the curb,


Free version download site,

Click on the green rectangle with Download Now, and CNET Secure Download, underneath it.

A small window will come up on the right. Takes a few seconds.

I have to assume, you are not downloading it to be used on the computer, you are on right now.
Have a new CD-R disk in the optical drive.

In the small window on the right click on Save File.
Another small window will come up on the left. After the file has downloaded, Right-click on the file name.
In the list left-click on - Open containing folder

The folder will be open, and mbam-setup will be highlighted in blue.
Right-click on mbam-setup
Then left-click on - Copy

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware will be copied to the CD disk.
When finished remove the CD disk, turn the infected computer on, and put the disk in the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

Install Malwarebytes.
When finished go to the Malwarebytes desktop icon, and double-click on it.
Click on - Full Scan
Time it takes depends on how large your harddrive is, and how much stuff you have on it. Average time is 44 minutes.

When Malwarebytes is running you may see pop-up, after pop-up.
So many in fact that you may not be able to see the Malwarebytes screen.
Tempting as it may be, DO NOT click on anything. You will just slow Malwarebytes down.

(Some are real Microsoft 'shields', some are caused by the virus, for example. Clicking on the real ones does no good, I assure you. Just slows Malwarebytes down)

After Malwarebytes has finished, you still have more to do.
Turn System Restore OFF.

System Restore not only restores your files, but also the virus too!
With System Restore turned off run Malwarebytes one more time.
When finished turn System Restore back on, and create a Restore Point.

Need guidance? I need to know what Operating System you are using. [ Examples; Windows XP, (Home or Pro does not matter), Windows Vista, or Windows 7 ]

Viris on my laptop is there anyway i can clean it out my disc d is full

Update your virus definitions and run a deep or full scan, if no luck! attempt a system restore of your computer back to an earlier time before this happened.

Their are virus in my computer how do i remove

One good free tool you can try using is MALWAREBYTES' malware remover.

You can read about that software, check out other user reviews and download it free from WWW.CNET.COM in their free download section.

Here is the direct link to the download page:;1

Just click on the DOWNLOAD NOW (7.38MB) button when you get there and then follow the onscreen instructions to download, install, and run the program.

After cleaning out your system with Mawarebytes', make sure your AntiVirus program is installed and running properly, and is kept up to date.

If you do not have an antivirus program currently installed on your computer, then try the following free program from CNET:;1

Good luck.

Several virus's on my computer

download a antivirus scanner.

this should detect and clean/remove any viruses it detects.

Compag presario sr2050nx with antivirus live issues,please help

This is a very nasty problem to get rid of. If you are able, I would recommend taking your system in to a reputable repair location to have removed. If you are okay with probing around and playing with the registry in your computer, then you might try the steps outlined in this link. Be warned, if you make a mistake following these steps, it can cause more harm than good to your computer up to the point of crashing your computer and loosing all information on it.
I also recommend reading through the whole process to make sure you understand everything including the posts at the bottom.
