This terrible! My computer is infected by viruses! Yesterday night some messages appear informing of the infection of my sistem and I cannot fix the problem! The computer become more slow and google chrome don't work now. And using it sometimes a message appear telling me about processes that are stopping or new file infections. It's the I had the same problem last year! Is there something wrong with my computer or the problem is as always windows vista?

hi i want to suggest you that you should install a good antivirus and should run weekly fullscan .the bitdefender is the good for infected antivirus which block the virus to enter in your computer.that is the common help.you should go to safe mode and run your antivirus or restore to date when your computer was ok .it can be possible if there is a restoration point and if the problem persist you should reboot your computer and install a good antivirus .

Go buy Kaspersky. I'm using it for the last 4 years and in my opinions its best.

Relax and take a deep breath. If you have an anti-virus, run it on safe mode, if you don't know how to do it , you call a technician.There is a software called ComboFix but this must be done with utmost care, but if you dont know if you can run this, call a technician. You call a technician..reformat your computer,change your operating system to windows 7 or windows xp, they are more basic so you can run applications easier. Buy a good anti-virus software and always be carefull of sites you visit and be cautious of files being downloaded to your computer.

I am assuming here that you always update your anti-virus, isnt it.Cause if not, this software will not be able to help you ward off those unwanted critters.(^_^)

At the end I decided to format my computer. I installed Windows 7. For sure it will be better than Windows Vista.

Well that is a shame. I have an idea, and a fix for that problem, go out and buy a MAC computer. That will solve your problem. PC's are known for getting viruses all the time. All the anti-virus programs are not that effective. So they only solution is to my a MAC.

Hi try to use internet security versions. Because internet provides possibilities for entering viruses without user permission. If you have problem means format your system otherwise viruses intrude your hard drive. All data might be infected.

Format PC hard disk is the best - Install good antivirus is a must
Computer viruses and trojans are nasty and can imitate and duplicate your exisitng files and folders in the computer so that it can be mines to reinfect again the pc when your accidently clikc them again.Hence sometime it is best to format the pc and the whole harddisk and later install a good antivirus like kapersky and such.Also exercise cautious when browsing internet and not downloading unknown stuffs.

Those messages alerting you of virus attack or infections are mostly the virus itself. When you follow their prompts, it will make the condition of your computer worse. You should have a reliable anti-virus to avoid this. For now, the only thing I could advise is for your to do a system restore. I've had this kind of problem before but I was able to solve it simply by system restore. Try if if it could help you.

Hi my friend. I've already seen those type of viruses but I know them. Restoring my computer I'd have fixed the problem, but in this case restoring was useless. I format the computer now, I put on Windows 7.

I already have an antivirus (AVG) and I already restore my computer, but the problem isn't fixed yet. I'll try to fix the problem using the sites suggested by the other members.

I had encounter same problem almost a week ago.. it keeps poping up that your security is at risk and all.. I got the rid from that using spybot search and destroy.. you can download it from www.safer-networking.org While surfing forums I also found to use antimalwarebytes but I personally didn't try.. you can try from www.malwarebytes.org Also few technical things you need to do before using above software is : go to run type %temp% and clean it.. also run ccleaner or other temporary file cleaner software. and from start menu - run type msconfig and enter in start up tab remove those entry which are having temp path and rundll32.exe /anything and svchost.exe /anything then run above program. Good luck.. !
