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

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.
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.
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.
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:
Temporary Internet files
Junk in the registry
Stored search data
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.
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.

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.

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

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
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.
My system was effected with the Trojan horse virus and my files in the system got corrupted. I tried innumerable times to delete it but failed and I have installed avg anti-virus scanned all the files but after 1 hour it appeared same. I tried in all ways but couldn't clear the virus from my system.so at last I have taken my system to applerepairer.co.uk here and now there is no virus in my system its working perfect and my files got restored.so I would like to suggest you to visit applerepairer.co.uk this place in case if you have major problem with your PC.

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.
00st2AnswerIt'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.
