there is a virus on my computer and certain programs won't start, i need help fixing it!!!
Download stinger and run it:
Thanks a bundle
Let us know how it works and what if any viruses, trojans or the like it finds and crushes.
thanks, it works ok, i don't know what to tell you but my computer is up and running again, thanx
When Stinger was finished it displayed a list of what it found and removed. If you saw that, you could then google it, find out perhaps where you picked it up. Could be helpful in the future.
Anyhow, glad to be of help.
I don't know if there is a karma system on this board, but if so, i will give you like +500 karma, thanks for your help
I won't say anything about "defensive browsing" because having to use Stinger is sort of like the morning after pill. I also won't say anything snarky, like "stay off Porn sites until you learn safe browsing."
Actually, I don't care too much for those kinds of sites, but my sis had my computer for a short time
i'd also advise you get a decent A/V program
any of the majors are fine, but i prefer the free ones
AVG Free - Download antivirus and antispyware software for Windows XP and Vista
has a free version of AVG, its the one i use and its never failed me
