Hey Everyone

With BT I get free McAfee Internet Security 2015 - is it any good, and would you recommend using it?

Preferred Solution: Do you recommend using McAfee?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums. Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again. Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT. Click Continue at the disclaimer screen. Please post the contents of log.txt. Thank you for your patience.Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem. If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped. Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment.

Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so. Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so! Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work. Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix. Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix. Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.Thanks.

Hello,

I have Windows XP with Mcafee virus protection and Firewall. The virus software fails to update because it can not connect to the Mcafee site. I use windows explorer 8 and can access all sites except Mcafee. Do I have a virus or malware? Need help to remove. I contacted Mcafee and they had me download their Stinger tool, but that did not find any virus.

Thanks.

If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top.

Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Hi, welcome to TSF!

Please re-enable system restore. An infected system restore cache is better than having nothing at all.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running combofixl:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/comb...o-use-combofix
Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.
When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

New HijackThis log.

Please click Here to download HijackThis to your desktop.

Click the Download button. When the Trend Micro HJT install box appears, double click on the HJTInstall.exe. Click on Install.

It will be installed by default here: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

A shortcut to the application will also be placed on your Desktop.

The program will open automatically after installation.

You can double-click the icon that was placed on the Desktop to run subsequent HijackThis scans or you can use the icon inside the folder. The folder HijackThis is where you will find the HJT logs that you save. When you use the application to remove anything, you will also find the backup copies made by HJT inside this folder.

Click on "Do a system scan and save logfile" When the log pops up in Notepad, copy and paste that file back here.

I am wondering, did this get here my a java update/installation?  How can I make sure that after running ccleaner, that everything mcafee is removed?  I only ran the cleaner, so these registry values won't get removed.

As per title, I've been using ASUS motherboards for last 11 years and I must say they are worth every penny. First one was P4P800-Deluxe which lasted from 2001 to 2007 and second one is P5E3 which I'm using since 2007 till now.

I guess its time to jump on bandwagon and upgrade my system. I'm again very much leaning towards getting ASUS again, i.e. P8P67

I was wondering if I should try some other brands like Gigabyte or MSI. I know ASrock is sister company of ASUS so its like getting same motherboard for less money. What will you my fellow PC geeks will advise to go for?

I almost forgot to mention, I'll be getting Core i7 2600k very soon so motherboard has to be 1155 socket.

A:Recommend me new MB

All you can expect to hear is someone's personal experience with a brand, such as you just stated yourself for Asus. "I've owned leventy-leven brand X motherboards and never had a problem".

You can then go immediately to Google and find all kinds of horror stories about that particular brand.

Anecdotes are just that and mean little since the horror stories encompass all brands and you will play hell finding any authoritative evidence--just as it is for hard drives.

I've owned Intel, Dell, Gigabyte, and several Asus motherboards. The only one that ever failed was an Asus.

Signifying nothing. It's just another anecdote.

Look for the features you need and buy from a dealer you trust.

Make some wild-ass guesses and questionable assumptions about supposed build quality and quality control.

Hope it doesn't break.

Hope even harder that you never need to deal with customer support.

7 Port USB 2.0 480Mps Hi-Speed HUB Laptop Notebook NEW on eBay (end time 27-Nov-09 20:29:35 GMT)

it states ''USB 2.0'' all over it, but it does not come with an additional power adapter...this means whenever you plug in more than 2 devices, the USB block defaults all connections to ''USB 1.0''

Hey guys, i got a tall order for you guys.

i was wondering if it would be advisable to have 2 AV's, 2 Anti Spyware/Malware, and 2 Fire walls? Recently i had a glitch in the system, some Backdoor virus is trying to get in.
Bitdefender is blocking it left and right so im safe. Am i over reacting? or should i amp up my security? So i considered running 2 of each.

heres what i considered

Main AV: Bitdefender 2nd AV: Either MSE, Avast or Avira

Main Anti spyware/malware: MalwareBytes 2nd Anti: Superantispyware or any other

Main Firewall: windows7 firewall control 2nd wall: pctools firewall or anyother

what do you guys think? i mostly use my puter for school, games, and im constantly downloading new software.

Check out my specs and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advanced.

A:Do You Recommend it?

While running 2 AV's is possible, it's definitely not advisable. There's nothing at all wrong with running a virus scan with more than one anti-virus program. Because it's just a scan - it starts, it scans, and then it's done. Real time monitoring, which is installed with most anti-virus programs is constantly running and scanning files downloaded to your machine. Running two or more real time anti-virus monitors at the same time is very likely to cause a conflict which could result in any number of error messages or failures. The most advisable thing to do would to be to find a good, reliable anti-virus program that you trust, and make sure it's always updated with the latest definitions.

Same for anti-spyware programs, as long as there isn't two real time monitoring engines trying to do the same thing at once, you should be fine.

The same goes for firewalls, however, I just wouldn't recommend running two software based firewalls at the same time because, as with AV programs, they monitor in real time, and two programs trying to do the same thing at once can and usually will cause problems. However, if you have a hardware based firewall, such as one built into a router, there would be no problem running a software and a hardware based firewall.

As for your case, if you believe BitDefender is doing it's job, I would leave it as your anti-virus, and use MalwareBytes and run a periodic scan to check for spyware, and either use the default Windows Firewall, or another 3rd party firewall and all should be fine. But remember, the best security is purely common sense while browsing

Sorry for the long winded reply, too much time on my hands lol. Hope I helped

PC Diagnostic software? Something that looks for potential problems and can fix them but still giving the user control over what gets repaired?

I have used Norton WinDoctor for years but recently it repaired a registry entry and caused big time problems. I had to use System Restore to back up to the previous backup. Ever since I have been reluctant to let it clean much up with out eyeballing the change first. I have also used Norton CleanSweep for a long time but it will not always remove software that it says it does.

I recently tried PC BugDoctor. It finds a lot more errors than WinDoctor does but their licensing fee is quite high, so I've never bought it. And it does not say what it's going to repair so I have never had it try.

Nero isn't an archiving program, it's just a burner application. I have no idea what a lightning III is or what it pertains to in this situation. MusicMatch is used for cateloging and playing your MP3 music library and does a pretty good job of it. There are other applications like WinAmp and many..many others. As far as downloading, are you referring to the file sharing services like Kazaa and the now defunct Napster?

I would look for one that would run your system for about 10 minutes to give you time to close out any files that you have open and gracefully shut down in case of a power outage. Just don't put your laserjet printer on the same line. Your monitor and computer should be all that is necessary.
APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V should be more than sufficient. Many are cheaper but you gets what you pay for. Some of the cheaper ones are nothing but a surge supressor.

A:Can someone recommend a CPU

From the MB and CPU specs, I would assume the PC is at least 5 years old?

It is possible to upgrade the CPU a bit, but finding Athlon XP CPUs is getting fairly difficult and expensive. Also, upgrading any other part in such an old system would be a waste of money since you won't be able to reuse it in a future system later on.

Your money would be better used if you saved a bit for a completely new PC with up to date parts. There are plenty of fairly decent PCs on the market these days for under $500 which would perform many times better.

What do you mean your CPU is almost dead? CPU's don't fail fairly often and there's usually no "almost dead" state for them.

Albatron tech support is pathetic at best, but you need to check with them which processors are supported and i you need a BIOS update to run those processors. Normally this is posted clearly on the manufacturer's website but these guys don't seem to work in the same manner.

I am planning a new build (already bought mobo, cpu, ram, and dvd drive), and I am looking for a nice PSU. I havent decided on a graphics card yet, but its likely that i will get either an 8800gt or an 9800gtx (they ususally want ~300-450W)

Anyways, most PSU's I have seen have around 8 molex cables. I dont need 8 molex cables, I dont even really need one (maybe certain case fans btw). My Hard Drive will be SATA, my DVD drive is SATA, so I dont want to waste space and drown in cables with extra molex's. I am looking for something at 600W (nice and safe, all hardware should be fine with this), and not to many molex connectors.

Suggestions? (Not buying from Newegg, since I dont live in the US)

A:What PSU would you recommend?

I don't think this is a PSU issue, you don't have many components and the GT 520 is a low power card (Nvidia's website recommends a 300W power supply).

Sounds like you probably downloaded a virus or something... you can try cleaning up your computer or reformatting.

First of all, you can run Windows  7 on a Mac book. With some limitations.Apple support provides information on how to do it.See here:Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft Windows QuoteThe keyboard and mouse or trackpad that came with your Mac (If they aren?t available, use a USB keyboard and mouse)A minimum of 2 GB of RAM, 30 GB of free disk space are recommended if you are installing Windows for the first time, or 40 GB of free disk space if you are upgrading from a previous version of WindowsAn authentic Microsoft Windows full install disc or ISO fileCurrent Apple PCs will also run Windows 8.1, which you can girt free for awhile. My recommendation is to use Windows 8.1 and see if you like it and forget windows 7.As to which Mac, I do not fell qualified to say. Maybe somebody else.

I am in the market for a new laptop. It will be used largely for internet, itunes, remote desktop into work. These two laptops are exactly the same price. Which would you recommend?

HP G62-371dx--AMD turion II 2.4 gHz 3GB ram (DD3), 500GB harddrive

HP G63-367dx-- AMD Turion II 2.5gHz 4GB ram (DD3) 320 GB hard drive

Batteries, graphics card, layout, etc are all the same. Since we have only used 30GB of our current laptop in four years, I am leaning towards the higher RAM but wanted to get another opinion. Thanks in advance!
 

A:which laptop would you recommend between these two?

If you are going to run a 32 bit version of windows,then
the extra hard drive space would probably be more useful.
For a 64 bit version,it would be able to make use of the extra memory.
Overall though,there isn't going to be much difference in performance.
64 bit would get a bit better performance.

Which you can then burn to a cd.Here is some more info from the homepage:http://nuhi.msfn.org/nlite.htmlEven if you dont use component removal, it still has some good features, like Service Pack integration, Driver Integration, and Hotfixes Integration..which I assume would help your comp run faster.I dont have and DVD Discs, or a seperate HDD, to backup on before I test this out, but when I do, I will let you know how it worked.If anyone has already tried out n-Lite, please give us your opinion

Within the next few weeks, I will likely be rebuilding my grandparents computer (since their P4 with 512mb RAM is no longer up to the job)

Anyways, I am aiming for a E5200 or E5300 Processor, with integrated graphics. This computer has no need for power, which is why I am opting for integrated graphics and a mid-range cpu

Any good recommendations?
 

A:Recommend a motherboard

I think G45 boards with Intel X4500HD graphics that fit DDR2 800 memory, take at least 4GB RAM but can start with less depending on the OS. That with E5200 or E5300 would give you a nice range of upgradability in the future if / when that becomes necessary. X4500HD onboard graphics even plays Blu-ray movies on Vista (but not XP though) in case their needs change a lil bit in 2-3 years. If something else we don't know of at this point came up down the line, then you could add a dedicated video card.

For instance, this also takes a wide range of processor FBSs, You start with E5200 (800MHz)which is at the buttom of it, but it can be upgraded to Quad Core (1333MHz) down the line when Quad Cores are like 80 dollars, in addition to memory being able to go up to 16GB (which you will never need hopefully!) It also has 6 USB on the back. And has a good customer satisfaction rating.

Personally, I feel like I know exactly what you are talkin about. Folks who have basic computing needs. If you don't need G45, you could go with G31 etc. But if things like Bluray became the 'standard' in a few years, then maybe, boooh! LOL! I will have to add a video card then (still not a big deal though). In addition to that G31 may limit the upgradability of RAM depending on what you choose. I'd probably go with A GOOD mobo with expandability and start with the low end components that the mobo takes, so that it can be used for several years. If your grandparents ONLY use the computer for Office and Internet Explorer, a webcam/Skype, and transfering pitures/ maybe burning them to CDs, then G31 should be good enough, for instance, this (though FBS 800MHz is not listed, the manufactuere's page says the mobo supports it.). Anyway, if you go with a G31, I recommend that you make sure the board has a PCIe x16 slot in case a video card has to be added in the near future...

What Antivirus would you recommend out of these 2? Avast free or Trend Micro Maximum Security? I'm trying to not use windows defender its not really good.. 

A:What antivirus out of these would you recommend?

Both of those have good reputations, though both will tend to use more system resources than Windows Defender does. The installers for both of those will handle the issues related with disabling Defender as part of the install process, so it's really a case of choose the one that has the best price for the features included. Note that there are two different Windows Defender products. With older OSes, Defender was only an anti-spyware package, not an Anti-Virus. With the current OS, Windows Defender has the functionality of Microsoft Security Essentials rolled in, so acts against both spyware and malware. All my machines are runnign Windows 10, and I use Windows Defender on them without adding a third party package.

This thread will probably get moved, but I wasn't sure where this should go. I am looking for a better chair, I'll keep the specifics of my chair secret...But I want a chair that allows me to slouch with back support. But I don't want to spend 250$. I'm thinking 150$ tops. I want to be able to lean back and read my book.

Now my chair leans back, but not enough and I'm always finding myself slouching more than the chair permits and it means my back makes an unsupported bridge between the bottom and the back of the chair. My chair only has a small mid section support on the back. I want full support and a good lean to it. Maybe what I want isn't possible, but.........


Any recommendations?

A friend wants a camcorder for casual use. "Don't break the bank", he said. I'd guess that the $300.00 range would be OK.
He's a professional photographer, but new to video.
He's got a Dell with Vista, I don't have the specs handy, but it's a couple of years old and probably has 2 GB RAM.
Would more RAM be a good idea?
What software do you recommend.
I assume I'll need to add a firewire card?
I can get more info if needed.Thanks.

I'm wanting to create a movie from clips of my sons rally driving experience, and need some help with software. Can anyone recommend what's best. I have basic movie editors that come with Windows, but I want to add effects and wipes, and be able to edit the sound, and add sound.

I only use the computer to check email and chat. I don't play video games. Should I save money and get a 15in or go ahead and get a 17in? People who have LCD's what do you recommend? The reason Im asking this is because my friend has a 15in and I noticed the text is extremely small....so Im thinking a 17in would be better for me

So, there are 100's of webcams out there, and all seem to generally have the same spec's. But the thing that varies is price, and I'm sure some webcams are somehow better than others.

What I want is:

-Atleast 1.3MP
-I need it to be able to clip on to my Dell Latitude D630
-Reasonable price. For instance, i'm not spending $100+ on a webcam. But i'm willing to pay more than $20, but if it does cost $20, that is fine too.

Site's i've checked out:

Thanks
 

A:Recommend me a webcam!

I have the QuickCam Pro and the Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000. Both will mount onto your laptop. The QuickCam rests on top and the NX-6000 clips on. Both are compatible with just about everything. The NX-6000 is smaller and has better quality.

Your choice. A word of warning: Get either a Logitech or a Microsoft camera. Both are compatible with everything. I can't say that about any other brand.

I have Norton Antivirus activated for 6 months and i wanna see is norton any good ? I'd like to try it but i dont know is it good.
 

A:Do you recommend Norton ?

Well Norton is a good AV, used to use too much system resources but i've installed it on my system about 3 months ago to test it and it was really light with only 2 processes and used about 10-15 MBs of RAM when the Chrome was opened (now i use Firefox). It's protection is good but if you can switch to Bitdefender or Kaspersky or Emsisoft than do it. Currently i use BD Internet Security and i really like it. You can use Bitdefender AV free edition with Comodo Firewall, a very solid combo IMO.

I'm wanting to overclock a CPU on one of my computers and think it's a good idea to upgrade the cooler on it as it currently jumps to around 50C under load.

Can someone recommend me an effective cpu cooler thats compatible with the la775 cpu's?

Spud
 

A:Recommend CPU cooler

Personally I like the Corsair Hydro H50, Its a liquid coolere rather than a fan base:

A:Recommend a monitor

Dell or Samsung would be my choice. The Dell prices are not bad but I can buy a 32 inch LCD 720p/1080p TV for that price.
My 32 inch Sony Bravia 720p was only $320 and HDMI hookup makes it a great laptop companion for movies or whatever.
Good luck.
