How do you remove the issas.exe computer virus?

(Same as How Do You Remove a Computer Virus)There are many different kinds of "computer virus'." Many people confuse the terms: malware, spyware, and adware, assuming they all are the same as a "Computer Virus." This is not so, though many of such kinds of malicious applications can be quite easily removed.

Step 1: Download an Anti-Virus application. Good examples of this are:

  • Spybot Search and Destroy
  • Microsoft Windows Defender
  • Norton 360 (not free)
  • AVG Anti-Virus
  • Avast!
  • Trend Micro
  • Etc.

The list goes on, and on... You can see the corresponding links to each recommended anti-virus application in the "Related Links" below. (Note: There has been debate over the possible problems that may arise with having multiple anti-virus applications installed, yet this has not been widely confirmed and is mainly an individual problem with few computers.)

Step 2: Download and Install updates for the installed anti-virus application and then run a "Full Scan" of your computer to attempt and detect any malicious activity.

Step 3: Follow the instructions given by the individual anti-virus application to remove the malicious application(s).

Step 4: Install security updates on your computer. Separate from updates for individual anti-virus applications, it is highly recommended you download and install updates for your operating system. A corrosponding link is given in the links below for Microsoft Windows updates.

Step 5: Stay safe by downloading and installing proper security tools. These tools could include:

  • CCleaner (Cookies and Registry Cleaner)
  • McAfee Site Advisor (Idenitifies Malicious Websites)
  • WOT (Identifies Malicious Websites)

The corresponding links are given below under "Related Links" as well.

  • Well you can't just ask how to remove a computer virus. There are thousands of variations of viruses. Each one having different code and as such some are harder or easier to remove. To remove a virus software quarantines the file that is infected, delete the file, clean the infected file of the virus or deny the virus access.
  • If you suspect or if you confirm that your computer is infected with a virus, obtain current antivirus software. For more information about antivirus software vendors, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Antivirus software helps protect your computer against most viruses, worms, trojans, and other malicious programs. Many computers come with antivirus software installed. You can also purchase antivirus software, and you can install it yourself. In this scenario, you must also keep the antivirus software up to date.
  • A firewall is software or hardware that creates a protective barrier between the computer and potentially damaging content on the Internet. A firewall helps guard the computer against malicious users and against many computer viruses and computer worms. Use a firewall only for network connections that you use to connect directly to the Internet. For example, use a firewall on a single computer that is connected to the Internet directly with a cable modem, with a DSL modem, or with a dial-up modem. You can use the same network connection to connect to the Internet and to a home network or to an office network. In this scenario, use a router or a firewall that prevents a computer that is connected to the Internet from connecting to the shared resources on the home computer or on the office computer. Do not use a firewall on network connections that you use to connect to your home network or to your office network unless the firewall can be configured to open ports only for your home network or for your office network.
  • Updates help shield your computer from vulnerabilities, from viruses, from worms, and from other threats as they are discovered. Steps that you can take to update your computer include the following:

    Install updates for Windows and for Windows components such as Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, and Windows Media Player

    Install updates for Microsoft Office programs.

    Install updates for other third-party programs on your computer. For more information, contact the manufacturer of the third-party program. Additionally, install security updates for other Microsoft products that are on your computer, such as Internet Information Services (IIS), Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, and other products.

    If you are running a version of Microsoft Outlook that is earlier than version 2002, make sure that the Outlook e-mail security update is installed on the computer. For more information about the Outlook e-mail security update

    If you are running Outlook Express, use caution when you open e-mail attachments.

    Disable active scripting in Outlook and in Outlook Express.

  • Steps to remove a virus: Visit the Protect Your PC site and install the latest updates.

    If you currently use antivirus software, visit the manufacturer's Web site, update it, and then perform a thorough scan of your system. If you don't currently use antivirus software, subscribe to a service and scan your system immediately.

    Download, install, and run the Malicious Software Removal Tool (for Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 users). Note that this tool does not prevent viruses from infecting your system; it only helps to remove existing viruses

What causes the error message 'LSA shell has encountered an error' when you connect to the Internet?

LSA Shell ErrorsThis used to be caused almost exclusively by the sasser worm. You could simple download the scan and fix from McAfee.

There is now a more common worm that sasser that replaced. It may be causing the LSA Shell error. Your most common junk antivirus such as McAfee can detect and delete sasser. Most firewalls can stop sasser. This sounds more like the womourge worm. You can find and eliminate this with the tools from Symantec.

Here is more input:

  • Although these sites are great to find help and answers some people don't keep up with the information being released every momment of every day and it is difficult to keep up with the ever so progressive virus world. Please search out as many casses of this and read all info pertaining to it before fallowing one post. You could just end up in circles over and over again.
  • The solution is easy, somewhat. I take it when you receive the LSA Shell (Export Version) notice, a few moments later the System Shutdown Count appears? Not to worry. Just restart your computer, making sure that you are, in fact, disconnected from the internet. Then click Start, click Run, and in the white box type "cmd". A black box will appear, inside the black box, after your computer's administrater's name type "shutdown -I" (when typing this, don't forget the space between the hyphen and the word "Shutdown".) and press enter. The Shutdown Setting's window will appear. In the first box, type in your computer's name and click Add. Then in the box that reads: 20 seconds, type 9999. This will increase your time on the internet to about three hours!This will give you time to download Stinger, which can be found on the McAfee website. Stinger will find and repair this problem. Simple.
Solving the LSA Shell ErrorIt's simple and not that simple. Follow the services.msc technique:

1. click start -> Run

2. type "services.msc" (without the double quotes) and press Enter.

3. Double Click "Remote Procedure Call"

4. On the "Recovery" tab, change "Shutdown Computer" to "Restart the Service" for all Failure counts ie. 1st, 2nd and subsequent.

5. Press OK.

That should be the first step to preventing it. Then download any "Blaster Worm Removal Tool" from the net and scan your system for it. This shutdown is often caused by the msblast worm. That should fix your problem.

And if it continues, just do this everytime the shutdown count begins:

1. Select Start -> Run

2. type "shutdown -a" and press Enter

That's it. This solves everything. the countdown disappears.

Preventing the WormPrevention is better than cure.

If you had internet connection firewall (ICF) enabled, this wouldn't have happened. Worms use the LSA shell security flaw to get into the remote system. Enable the ICF by:

1) Right click connections icon in the Network Connections and select properties.

2) Go to advanced and tick ICF option.

This will evade viruses from getting into the system as it blocks all incoming connection requests.

Here is more input:

  • Go to Start > Run> type services.msc and search for RPC, double click on it and on the TAB's go to Recovery, all the failure notices that say "Restar the Computer", change them to "Restart the Service", apply it and then reboot your machine. Once you reboot, it'll give the error message again, but will stop once you press ok twice, restart your machine and it shall be removed.
  • Sometimes its not sasser or the msblast worm like for my case! So the thing is to go to run. type "services.msc" then go to the option "RCP" from there another window will pop up and click the recovery tab. change all three setting to "restart the service" and reset the comp. That should do it.
NoteIf none of these solutions worked for you, you can always restore Windows by using your original discs that came with the computer.

What does Dropper Inor do to your computer?

Well with my computer it locks up windows, pages move slow or not at all, makes having the internet not worth the hassle!

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

In general, a dropper (a.k.a. trojan loader) will sneak on to your system somehow, and avoid detection because it does not actually contain malicious code. It then secretly downloads and installs malware on your computer. This attack is designed to be effective against computers with an antivirus program.

How do you remove I-Worm Lovgate T?

1.) Disable "system restore" 2.)Download the virus removal tool "STINGER" (http://ashs.notlong.com or www.sarc.com) 3.) Run the Tool ! :)

that should take care of the lovegate ;)\

- ASHWIN

remove i-worm/lovgate.T files

first off you should scan your machine in safe mode and delete all files, then do a clean up of your cache, temp files, history and cookie folder, then clean your recycle bin. you should also make all your files visible, no hidden files.

you should only have one anti-virus running on your computer as this can cause conflicts. if you want to use 2 then disable one and use the other. the other can be used as a stand alone when needed.

or if you prefer get rid of norton and use the other.

reboot your computer in normal mode.

check the quarenteen folder in norton and see if it put it in there if so delete it from quarenteen, then go to the temp folder and delete the offending file. and clean your recycle bin.

How do you get rid of the virus I-worm netsky b?

I had the virus i-worm/netsky.b and after running AVG antivirus several times I decided to pay Grisoft.com a visit and found virus removal utilities. I downloaded the removal tool for i-worm/netsky.b. which removed the problem with ease.

I actually had a problem with a different virus and AVG would not remove the virus with its built in virus scan; I, however, did find an alternative (for Netsky viruses as well) given by grisoft/AVG at the following URL: grisoft.com

I would suggest following the URL's instructions to the letter. If you do, you can then run AVG's Scanning Software and the Virus will have disappeared.

This removed the other virus for me and it is also supposed to work for the netsky viruses as well.

    • Be careful opening your emails especially from email addresses you do not recognize. I would suggest scanning them first or signing up with an email service that scans them for you. I keep getting sent the Netsky virus over and over again to one of my accounts but it is detected and cleaned before being sent to me, fortunately. I suspect that someone has me as a contact and has gotten a hold of their email list and started sending me email supposedly from these other valid email addresses. I do not expect this to clear up until that person, realizes they have the netsky virus and "cleans" their computer.

Good Luck!

Why you need the study of number system?

Human being use words and letters to speak to one another. In the same way we need to make electronic devices such as computers understand what we say or what we want it to do. So to make computer understand we use number system. We use ordinary English alphabets to type on computer but these are translated into computer language i.e. binary language.

How do you get rid of trojanhorse purityscan b virus?

I had purityscan.M - it may be different, but AVG could not remove it and just sent it to the virus vault. I tried the method that Thom contributed for Swizzor.af and it worked. 1)open your control panel -pick folder options -click the view tab -under the heading "hidden files and folders" check Show hidden... -uncheck the checked box a few items down "hide protected operating system files" 2) run AVG and this it should heal the virus. It worked for me
