NEW VIRUS *ALERT*

Post  Smelly_bandit on Thu Jan 08, 2015 12:01 am

so yeah the fuckbag hackers have been at it again making lovely viruses 

this one comes in the form of an abode update, the thing installs all manner of mischief on your PC and results in dozens of pop ups every time you're online making the experience unworkable

currently looking at how to purge it

so if any of you see your pc saying update abode or some shit like that , make sure you go to the legitimate site and do the manual update

Don't click any of the underline stuff cause more will load on apparently it

It's actually easy enough to get rid of

If your remember when you downloaded it just go to the add/remove but in control panel

sort by date

And uninstall everything on the date you don't recognise

Watch out for. Something called picColour, when you uninstall you need to select the no option otherwise it stays on

If you turn on your computer and find a load of bollocks going on after maybe installing something or at any other time, there is a good chance of fixing it quickly and easily by doing the following.....



Reboot the computer by selecting - start - shutdown - restart etc...



Then as the computer starts to reboot, start quickly tapping the 'f8' key and keep doing it until you get into the boot select menu list...


Select 'start from last known good'.


The system will then continue to boot up into windows, hopefully with previous good configuration before the problem was created.



Won't be a solution for every problem but could well solve most.


If problem persists, try looking in 'msconfig' in 'startup' tab.


Start - run - type in 'msconfig' or 'msconfig.exe' - then hit 'return' or click ok.


In the startup tab you will see a list of all the bits of software that automatically start running when your windows operating system boots up.

Try taking the ticks out for anything that looks a bit dodgey or other applications that you don't use or don't want starting up as standard, as they will only be slowing your machine down by running on start up.

But be careful as your firewall and anti virus may be listed here to start up too, and you don't want to untick them.

Some rogue software does try to avoid detection by listing itself here with names that are similar to good applications or windows files.



This can be a bit trial and error but normally results in a fix.


Thumbs up
