How do you remove the about blank virus by editing the registry?

Removing About:Blank VirusHere is one recommend solution:
  • Open your browser so you'll will see (automaticly) the startpage "about:blank"
  • Now go UP TOP to the "view source" option of your browser. It will be right on top. Look for a string that looks like this: res://%44%3a%5c%57%49%4e%44%4f%(etc,), highlight and right click and copy, save in word, or wordpad.
  • Make a copy of this complete string (control c) and go to: www.simplelogic.com/Developer/URLDecode.asp
  • Paste the string in here and press on "clean data".
  • Now a ***.dll file appears... above, now you see what it is named and what file it is in.
  • Go to the directory where it's in (windows/system32) and activate "show hidden files" in this directory.
  • Close all applications. Removing the dll file is not possible, but you can rename it, so do that!
Alternate solution to about: blankI attempted many solutions that turned out to be temporary. But now, I'm free at last, thank God I'm free at last from the horror.

The hidden culprit (using Windows XP Pro) that keeps re-infecting the machine is the registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\AppInit_DLLs

You need to remove it. Some folks say to change the registry key value to random characters using the free reglite utility (which may work as well) but I removed the key. The value of the key is hidden and causes Windows to load the Trojan DLL every time any application is run.

The way to remove the registry key is not obvious. If you just delete it from regedit, the Trojan DLL will undo your handy work. Here's what worked for me:

1. Rename the HLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows folder to Windows2.

2. delete the AppInit_DLLs key under the Windows2 folder.

3. Rename the Windows2 folder back to Windows.

Now that AppInit_DLLs is gone, run your favorite spyware/adware utilities such as Adaware 6, CWShredder, and Hijack This. Either try Norton or Comodo System Utilities, which helps if you don't trust your instincts for repairing registry files. Remember, I'm not a geek and just want to use computers & software rather than reinvent them from the ground up.

4. Reboot your machine. Your computer should be free at last.

NOTE Do not edit the registry or delete DLL files, If you do not know what your are doing. Only do it if you are experienced in this area.answer:

the easiest way is to search the perticual name of virus in regedit. and then either change its name or deleter the reg. item

What is AVG resident shield and is it unavoidable?

As far as I'm aware, it is the monitoring portion of AVG anti-virus program. It runs continuously to monitor your computer for possible viruses and infections. If it detects anything, you will receive an alert indicating the problem and the suggestion to run the anti-virus program. The resident shield does not remove viruses though, just warns you that it has found something. You have to run an anti-virus program to remove it or find it yourself and remove it. You can also right click on it in the home page and just select ignore component

Here are more opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers:

  • Actually, it monitors files you click on, or that are started by other programs, and keeps the virus from executing, it will then automatically give you the option to repair or delete the file.
  • Resident Shield is protecting the computer whenever the OS is running. It is working in the background and ensures transparent anti-virus file check during file opening, executing and optionally during file saving. Resident Shield runs automatically. If a virus is detected, Resident Shield denies opening or running of the infected file. Resident shield stores information about files it has checked elevating the need to recheck them if no modifications have been made

This is the main service of AVG Anti Virus and AVG Free Anti Virus. If you use these software you'll have to let this service run. You can avoid this by uninstalling the AVG software provided that you have an alternative Anti Virus.

What is the antivirus software that is used for the large companies?

There are a wide variety of antivirus software large companies can use. Generally, large companies use enterprise versions of antivirus software. Enterprise solutions are not much different from what you using at home. Except enterprise users enable a system administrator to more easily manage the many computers on the companies network. Lastly, these enterprise versions cost money but are necessary to protect large companies from mal-ware and theft. Some common antivirus software for large companies are Mcafee and Norton, but there are many programs to choose from.

How do you remove hidden and useless files from a hard drive?

Well if you use internet explorer then you can go to the tools menu click delete browsing history then click delete all. This will delete cookies, history, temporary files, form data and passwords. Then you can visity your document folder and delete any document that are old and out of date and/or are not needed. Programs are a big memory taker. They take up alot of your hard drive so remove those un used or unwanted programs by clicking start,control panel, add/remove programs and then find the programs on the list and remove them.

Unless you are an experienced and capable administrator (i.e. someone who has learned from the mistake of doing this sort of thing incautiously), you should generally rely on simple and free tools to do this.

For the most basic of cleaning tasks, use Windows 2000 and XP's own built-in tools:

1. Click Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Cleanup (you can also just click Start | run | then type: cleanmgr).

2. This tool will scan the drive, then present some options about cleanup. You can delete temporary files, clear internet caches, etc. Basic stuff.

3. On the 'more options' tab you can uninstall applications and components you are no longer using, or clear restore points (which are created when you install drivers and important software).

Once you have run through these steps, it's always a good idea to run the Defrag program to more efficiently use all that recovered space.

For more advanced (but still easy and bulletproof) cleaning, run the Microsoft Live Safety Center tool. Free, web-based, and does an excellent job cleaning not only useless files and defragmenting your hard drive, but also removing malware in all its forms. A one-stop shop.

http://safety.live.com/

Just click 'Full Service Scan', let it install the plugin, choose 'complete scan', then sit back and watch the action.

You can set your folder options under My Computer, View to see hidden files, but that is dangerous to start deleting them. If you want a fresh start, you're better off to back up everything you want to keep onto another hard drive, CD burner, floppy, thumb drive, etc. then fdisk & format the hard drive to wipe it all out and reinstall your operating system and any games/programs, etc. you want on there. You can set your bios to boot from a windows CD or a floppy and it should walk you through the re-formatting of your drive.

......

I apologize but I do not agree to going to extreme lengths such as formatting drive unless the operating system is not responding. Temp internet files, adwares, cookies, unused dlls from improperly uninstalled programs - all cause problems such as slowing down computer. However, most of the problems of a slow computer are caused by cluttered registry files. A good registry cleaner usually speeds up [use softwares such as pccon, errorkiller, errordoctor, they are the best]. An overall cleaning utility, which has never failed me is - Ace Utilities. It has everything that is needed to keep up and running - a drive cleaner, registry cleaner, startup add remove, etc etc - check yourself. These are inexpensive and worth their price shareware programs. The freeware programs I have never tried, but would surely try them someday. Right now, these are the best up on my saddle. ...... :) Komalsoft

If you have broadband Internet your computer gets a lot of junk called data miners that monitor what you do and send this back to the company which send you pop ups. Very annoying. These data miners can take up a lot of room if they're left to accumulate and use up a lot of valuable CPU power so deleting them shows a considerable boost in power. They're usually very well hidden and it would take you from now till next year to delete them all as they're just continually downloading to your computer. There is software called Ad-Aware that will hunt them out and delete them. I seriously recommend it. lavasoftusa.com is the address I think.

in the search for files and or folders on the c: drive...search for specific files called *.tmp and delete all found.You can also delete all ie5 files found in the windows temporary internet directory. If you are using a computer with a :restore: such as gateway goback or even windows system restore make sure you have a normal running machine at startup (no virus etc...)then in system troubleshooting disable system restore and all your restore points. On a reboot your system comes back healthy and clean. here is something I found by playing around...for those on AOL... type in your screen name in the search for files named(your screen name)look at what you will find! delete them all...and again on reboot all is well. Funny little thing called windows!

well in my opinion never delete the programs manually do use the "add and remove" program in control pannel. bcoz in this way if u delete the installed program manually then some of the files ar eleft behind that are shared by other programs so in future this cause great problem.

secondly, if u want to remove the hidden files then u can goto views->folder option->files and folders->check the box with the option"show all files". then u can come back to ur drives and remove the files that u want to.

I agree with using the free Windows tool Disk Cleanup which also works in Vista. When you invoke it with Start/Run/type: cleanmgr you should check all the boxes for removal EXCEPT the maintenance files for Microsoft Office 2002-2003 (over 200 MB) which should be left intact or you will need the original CD for repair later when problems occur with Office. Office 2007 does not leave maintenance files available for Disk Cleanup in Vista or XP as the maintenance files are installed to a hidden msocache folder. In XP you will see an entry checkbox for Office 2007 temporary files which you can check for removal. To sum it up...in Vista check all Disk Cleanup boxes, in XP check all boxes except for Office 2002-2003 maintenance files

I also like CCleaner and Cleanup!, but have found CCleaner is better in Vista. Cleanup! does run in Vista, but is slower than its performance in XP. For CCleaner you should leave unchecked Cookies so your saved web passwords will not be purged. Everything else I delete. I am not a big fan of registry cleaners as I find they can get the typical user in a lot of trouble fast by deleting important Windows registry entries. The Registry is the brains of Windows and best left to more experienced users.

How often to run temporary file removers? Often...and once a day is not excessive.

The best way is to use a disk sanitizer, which will format the hdd and write useless information on it and then format it again, depending on the software. Classic formatting works, but data can still be recovered. If you use Linux or Unix, the shred command works great. <>

This program will remove:

Temp files

Temporary Internet files

Cookies

Junk in the registry

Stored search data

Etc..

And run Disk cleanup :-Click Start =>Programs=>Accessories=>System Tools=>Disk Cleanup

It is not uncommon to free up around 300MB after running this program the first time.

Caution Do not delete stuff in "Local Drive":\WINDOWS folder

This was probably allready mentioned. Open a folder. Tools>Folder Options click "show hidden files and folders" Delete everything that shows unless it says Can not Delete Access Denied.

How to i update antivares without internet?

Buying the software from a software store would likely be the only option. But of course, if you do not have internet, you can't get viruses.

--------------

You can get viruses without the internet, they can be transfered through discs, sd cards, hard drives(externel and internal), pretty much anything that can store stuff and can be plugged into the computer. If you have another computer available with internet you can dL and use a portable storage device to move it, or use a tablet/phone with the ability to download anything and you can dL to the sd card and transfer it to the computer, don't know if internet cafe's allow downloading but if you have a usb drive, or disc, or sd card(only if the computers have a sd card reader) you might be able to get the update from there.

What is windows groove?

Written by Ray Ozzie, the author of Lotus Notes, now Chief Architect at Microsoft, you could call it version 2 of Lotus Notes and it's opposite in many ways. It is a more powerful, collaboration tool, but also easy to install, needs no servers or IT administration, and is cost effective for even the smallest user in a small town with nothing more than a phone / internet line.

1. Microsoft Office Groove 2007 creates dynamic workspaces to hold all digital information related to any Task, this could be a software project, a board discussion, or even a virtual classroom.

2. Each workspace is populated with only those members who have a need to know that information. Nobody else has access to it and even the roles and permissions allowed to each member can be set by the workspace manager.

3. All members in a workspace have all information automatically synchronised. No cc's and no acts of ommission or commission permit information to leak out or be forgotten. Groove is both identity and device secured, so leaking of a password means little, and data cannot just be copied and restored on another Groove account.

4. Groove guarantees not just security but also reliability of the information passing through the workspace. Once posted, you can be assured that ALL members WILL get that data - even under battlefield conditions, certified by the US DoD, Interpol and other security conscious organisations from GSK to KPMG to the UN.

5. Finally it is a viral product, that just grows in usage and benefits organically. It the best catalyst to innovation within any company, because it brings people together into a real time virtual world, just like being in the same room with the others. It cuts out fritter, speeds up decision making and improves team efficiency by at least 40%.

I don't think it originates from AVG, as this was the program I used to rid my computer of this particular dialer, (though lord knows where I picked it up from).

I would reccomend, if you can't get the computer to download the new update file(s), to download them using another copy of AVG on another computer, then transfer the correct files across on Pen Drive, or by some other form of removable media

What is the best anti-virus software?

Best Anti-virusThere is not really one best - Everyone has different preferences, computers, internet usage - So it's what will work best for you. I have used Norton, Zone Alarm, AVG, and I am currently using Avira Antivir Personal along with Comodo Firewall and Windows Defender .

Advice from different contributors:

  • The best software would have to be Trend Micro Anti-virus 2009 because I've heard Norton Anti-Virus slows you computer down.
  • The Best would be Avast, AVG, Avira Antivir (FREE) and Kaspersky....(NOT FREE)
  • I've used almost all antivirus in market found that: Avast edition is good but some how weak in disinfection but the updated program of Nod32 and Kaspersky are good
  • I say it is Nod32 only nothing else
  • Kaspersky still at top, but according to overall Mcafee's internet security is the next, you may also use nod32 latest version
  • In my opinion the best anti virus program is Windows Live Onecare. Onecare isn't just an anti virus program. It is unique software that protects a user against all threats. This includes the major types adware, spyware, viruses, Trojans and worms.
  • There is no best. There are two free ones that are as good as any other. AVG and Avast. Any virus program is only as good as it's updates.
  • True, most anti-virus programs are relatively equal; but I do find Kaspersky Anti-Virus and a general knowledge of [a]whatyou are downloading and [b]where you are downloading it from to be the best tools in combating adware, foistware, spyware, trojans, worms and all other types of malware. =)
  • I like the Frisk antivirus, from www.f-prot.com. It's small, lightweight, and powerful. You can run a scan while using Office or Excel. Try that with Norton. It's also priced competitively. I agree whole-heartedly with a and b in the answer above.
  • Kaspersky, Nod32 and Avast are the best
  • Probably PC Tools Spyware Doctor with Antivirus - it's one of the most used and trusted security programs for Windows and besides that, it's fast and user-friendly.
  • I have tried many different security suites and they all have weak points. It seems that none are anywhere near perfect. Here is my breakdown of the major anti virus software I have tested rated in order of of their effectiveness:

1. Norton Internet Security 2009 - Very light on resources compared to previous Norton products-very good detection rate, firewall-decent virus removal

2. Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 - Excellent detection and removal - fairly light on resources - hard to install on infected computers - will not work with other security software

3. PC Tools Internet 2009 - Excellent detection/removal - good firewall - annoying messages

4. Trend Micro 2009 - Good detection and removal - slows computer down moderately - good firewall

5. Bitdefender 2009 - Same quality as Trend Micro 2009

6. Avast Pro - Excellent detection/Good removal - confusing interface

The Bad - Avoid!:

1. Panda 2009 - Good detection - Poor removal - Heavy on system - Expensive

2. CA Antivirus 2009 - Fair Detection/removal - very difficult to install

3. McAfee Internet 2009 - Good detection - poor removal - Bad impact on system resources

4. Zone Alarm 2009- Avoid at all costs! Poor excuse for Anti-Virus

As far as free antivirus/anti malware:

1. Malwarebytes - This is the best Trojan/spyware, free or paid! - Removes 100% of everything I have come across

2. Spyware Doctor (Free Version) - Excellent detection/good removal

3. Avast Home (free) - The best free antivirus - as good as many paid AV

4. AVG Free - Everyone seems to like this one - I don't!

  • There are a lot of anti-virus..one of those is MCAFFE, it is known all over the world, next is the NORTON, when you buy a PC or a laptop expect that it has the package of NORTON anti-virus. The most famous one is the AVG, most people download it from the internet because of its capacity to kill viruses and worms at the same time aside from the fact that its for FREE. But the one I'm using right now is the BEST anti-virus ever.. AVAST! it works like AVG too but it provides deeper scanning and you can customize the way the scanning process would be, its really awesome and when it had located a virus, a scary sound will be heard and you will be aware that there is a virus. but nothing to worry you just have to follow the instructions of the AVAST. it is really great!!
  • These are the top antivirus

Bit Defender

McAfee

Kaspersky

NOD

Panda

AVG

Norton

Avast

Depending on what you categorize as being the best.

  • I would say that the main 3 categories that define an antivirus as being the best are PRICE, EFFECTIVENESS (how many definitions it can detect based on the top competitors), FRIENDLY USAGE (features versus simplicity in using them)
  • My recommendation is to get Avira Antivir. It is by far the only antivirus that can meet all 3 categories to a rate of 9 out of 10.
  • I'd say Norton. Norton is a very popular however, also a very, very big MB size wise program. If you need to completely remove it, you must be very, very careful in following the instructions and using specific dedicated programs. Also, be aware that in XP, using Norton's removal tool can and has resulted in corrupting MS Automatic Updates (source CastleCops.com and personal experience as of March 2007). By their very nature, ALL good av software sneaks its way around in your system. You would not want a simple virus to easily disable your av program. There are many av software programs that are all about equally effective including a few freeware versions (if you qualify eg., home use only). Cnet.com provides some detailed av reviews. In looking at their Editor's ratings also compare to their user's rating. The Editor's might give a program a 9.0 rating while a number of users rate the program a 3 (very low). You should look for why.
  • Avg because its free and good.
  • I'd go with AVG too, it's easy and not annoying.
  • Kaspersky Lab Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal 5.0
  • Anti virus Nod32 or Kaspersky use only one anti virus on your computer
  • To stop unknown spyware and viruses threat - Firewall zone alarm
  • Kaspersky and Avast are the best
  • I got Avast and it blocks a lot of virus on the internet and downloads
  • It all depends on your computer specifications. And which anti virus you are comfortable with. An anti virus which tops the virus comparison chart may not be the best one for you.
  • If you are looking for a free antivirus i really recommend you the AVG Free Edition. it is fast and quite easy to use for all users of computer.
  • If You want a Good Anti Virus, You'll Have To Buy it.
  • I Have Kasperksy, it works CHARMS!!! it catches the ' bugs ' Tell You about it. YOU decide if you wanna delete it or not, then if you say, " I want to delete it. " it removed the Bug entirely from your computer without damaging the file!!! it keeps a report about the viruses you have, and has anti-spam, anti-popup...yeah...and parental controls. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT !
  • I Have Windows Live One Care and it works perfectly it has good virus catching and also it has a good firewall and also it has tune-up with backs up your files and and removes any unwanted files and programs and it checks for updates for your computer and it also then scans your programs and files for virus's and it also helps save space on your computer by defragmenting you disks and hard drives.
  • This would depend if you want to get a free anti virus software or get a commercial one . Here are some options of the most popular ones

Free Anti Virus

AVG Free Edition 8.0.100

Avast! Home Edition 4.8.1201

AntiVir Personal 8.1.00.295

Trial Version of Commercial Anti virus software

How do you solve database are obsolete in kaspersky antivirus?

Well im not sure but i take it you have an illegally downloaded copy of this program from a torrent site, this will dis-allow you to update the program as it would void your fake key.

Im not sure if this is the case or not, because you simply should be able to click "Fix It" And the updates should just automatically download.

Thank you and good day

Answer 2:

The above answer made a number of unfortunate assumptions, that I will attempt to clear up.

There are no illegal copies of Kaspersky Anti-virus or Internet security on torrents or otherwise, the simple reason being that Kaspersky offer a 1 month free trial version of either program on their website. However fake keys for Kaspersky do exist. A fake key/or duplicate would give a "key blacklisted" message (as described on their website), and not a "database obsolete" message.

If you're Kaspersky virus definitions are out of date, you will get a "database out of date" message, after this if Kaspersky is not updated for a while, the next message you get is "database is obsolete".

This can happen if you have your updater set to manual and not automatic, or if your current purchased license has expired. So either do a manually update (press update button), or set updates to automatic (i.e., it will update automatically whenever new virus definitions are available). If your license has expired, then you'll have to buy another one to update. If you can't update your database with these options then contact their customer support, or ask for help on their forum.

In either event, Kaspersky does not become inactivated if the database is obsolete (no matter for how long it is left for), and will work as normal. However it will use the old virus definitions until it is updated.

If you download songs from other countries using LimeWire is it still illegal?

I am a musician and am very happy to have people download my music for free. How else will I ever become known??? Particularly as I write in the alternative genre in a country (Australia) without a huge industry.Way less than 1% of acts ever get signed and of those few earn any money from record sales. In fact it is common practice for companies to sign up bands and NOT promote them in order to stop competition with their existing bands.I could go on and on about the corruption of the recording industry (sony make a lot of money from weapons commmunications sales)I have started to self publish on Limewire to use it as a promotion tool.This is the only future for the recording indusrty, they need to get with it, music is a right not a privilege so yes you may be infringing copyright laws by downloading overseas music ( much like 'dubbing' onto cassettes was in the 80's)but only by lots of people doing it will the laws change....

AnswerDownloading any copywrited material from anywhere that you have not payed for is illegal, unless the artist has approved to free download. It is called stealing.

Correction: It is not always necessarily controlled by the artist, but more often by the licensor, such as ASCAP, BMI, or legal holding entities: attorneys, estates, trusts, etc. The artist in many cases prior to 1975 had/has little or no control over licensing terms. More recently artists have attained more control over licensing and some even promote free sharing of their work, even if limited by restrictions. Some examples include Dave Matthews and The Offspring.

Answeryes it is illegal but so many people do it and its not called stealing its just making the most of technology! lets face it no one goes out and buys every single in a shop - how much would that cost! and its not as if some of the artists need all the money the have anyway.

AnswerIt's not just other countries, limewire is illegal. We had to get rid of it because it was sending us viruses, and imagine if everybody used it; artists would sing, bring out a single, one person would buy it, make it available to everybody on limewire and then they get it for free. That artist only gets �1.99 after working hard for a year to release that single. How would you feel?Any legal music download company would make you pay for each song you download-if you don't know any of these companies try Napster, Tesco Download store, MSN music, audible.co.UK, Wanadoo jukebox, Packard Bell music station or Tiscalli music. All of these have been aproved of and are definatley legal. If limewire was legel then why would it be such a ridiculous price for all the songs you want...in the world? Also, you could be fined from �1,000 to having your computer taken away. Who wants that.Think about it before you break the law and let down your country aswell as all the song artists out there who have worked hard.
