Q: MY laptop is attacked by a virus nsl-school.org

I had a message on Yahoo messanger with links on yahoo messanger and when I clicked on it, it redirected the browser to nsl-school.org and downloaded virus. I have a protection by Avast and it detected a virus but could not do anything about it..
I have run ewidow and it detects files but can not remove them.
Also on my desk top, the virus has downloaded a file svhost.exe.

Please advise what should I do?

Really apriciate it..

Preferred Solution: MY laptop is attacked by a virus nsl-school.org

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi There,

Last night, my McAfee security alerted me to a trojan/rootkit attempting to overtake my laptop. I followed the prompts as they seemed legit from McAfee, My laptop then became totally overtaken by this virus, it stopped my admin rights, stopped me from accessing my security options, control panels, fire wall etc and took over entirely.

After several attempts of scans etc from my McAfee anti-virus - it was telling me everything was fine and no virus found. Yet my google chrome and internet explorer would not open, then when it did, it was being overtaken from someone else trying to make me log into my hotmail account etc.

I gathered my McAfee security was no longer responsive and had been attacked also, and at times I could not even properly access it from the task bar or bottom menus. After getting my computer into safte mode, I deleted McAfee - it was only a free trial, and then searched and found this site on another laptop showing help via Combo Fix. I first loaded my usb key with Malwarebytes and Combo Fix, I used safe mode and was able to get Malwarebytes running and detecting/deleting, I then used Combofix in safe mode to then deal with the rest.

It seems to have helped alot, as i can now access my main files again to do with security etc, the only thing is i still cant or it wont allow some admin rights still, and i had to run combo fix again as the trojan re-fixed itself and installed porn icons onto my desktop. after re-running combo fix again it d...

Hello,

My computer in school (desktop) has a Windows Experience Index of 3.3 but it seems to perform better than my 4.4 WEI laptop. Maybe WEI is not a reliable measure of how fast the computer is but just to give you an idea. I don't know the exact specs of my school pc but i think it has almost the same specs as my laptop in terms of ram and clock speed. Here are my laptop specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 32-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: Acer
System Model: TravelMate P243
BIOS: InsydeH2O Version 03.72.02V1.05
Processor: Intel® Pentium® CPU B970 @ 2.30GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
Memory: 2048MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 1878MB RAM
Page File: 3348MB used, 1230MB available
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)

Anyway, my laptop freezes a lot of times, especially when I haven't turned it off for a long time. This just doesn't happen with my school pc even if it's on 24/7. I was the one who installed windows 7 on both computers so they have almost the same programs installed (except maybe Connectify app in my laptop).

Now i'm wondering if I can still make my laptop perform faster or should I just buy a new one? My CPU usage meter indicates 87% of my ram is used. this is usually the case when i'm working. Do you think this will get faster if I upgrade the ram? i ... Read more

A:My 3.3 WEI computer in school is better than my 4.4 WEI laptop. why?

Do you think this will get faster if I upgrade the ram?Hello and Welcome -Most updated Windows7 computers will run about 4G RAM, rather than your current installed 2G RAM, so it would not hurt to upgrade this -If These TravelMate P243 Specs are the same / similar to yours, it includes Memory "Base RAM size 4 GB" -Part of Acer's business lineup, the TravelMate P243 features an Intel Ivy Bridge processor, 8GB of RAM, an HD webcam, and a 14-inch 1366 x 768 display. Availability date: Aug. 14, 2012 Also This Review says "Basic RAM is 4G" - So I would look at 4Gig as a standard setup.my laptop freezes a lot of times, especially when I haven't turned it off for a long time. << I would turn the computer off at least at the end of the day and save your work Personally only, I turn my laptop off every day (night) as it may be 2 or 3 days between using it, and I like to start fresh each time - Your choice there -Desktops and laptops are a bit different with shutdown times etc, but I still believe in turning them off when totally finished, and it only takes about 1 or 2 minutes to restart them for each session - Try this for a while, and clean out unwanted programs on a regular basis also -Regards -

It started doing it during downloads, or installing things, but then If inally got everything installed and now it just does it randomly, sometimes it will be ok for 3 hours, and then just shutdown, other times it shuts down every 5 minutes. I have changed the power settings to home/office and told it to never shut down, but it still does it. I know there is no virus, and it does not list an error message, it just turns black and shuts down.

I'm thinking of getting a Laptop for school, but since Ive only ever brought/built desktops before, I'm not really sure what laptop would be best, only what I want from it and can afford...

-I can spend around £500.
-Needs to be powerful enough to run Visual Studio 2008 without any problems (VS08 is probs the most demanding app I'll use at school)
-At least Dx9 with pixel shader 3. Dx10 would be nice if possible
-If possible without spending too much I wouldn't mind being able to play games at decent settings (eg HL2:Episode 2) without lag

Ive had a look around but couldn't realy find anything useful to tell me if a laptop is capable of what I want or not...this looks like it may be more than capable, but I'm not really sure if thats the case, nor if it's actauly a good deal for £499...

Hello. There is not much we can do to help you here on the Laptop Audio discussion board. I suggest that you go to Dell_Robert P's profile page and send him a message. (Click on the link which should take you to his page. Then send him a message if you see "send a private message" link on the right side of the page. If not, then click the Add as Friend link and include your message.)
Robert P is the chief forum moderator, and will probably try to help you, although there may be a limit on what a moderator can do. You should include more concrete details about what happened than you put in your post here. It explains what happened but is a bit sketchy. Also include your laptop's service tag number, so he can look it up.

A:Kid needs a computer for school... should I go with a laptop or desktop?

Given a choice, I vote desktop

1) You usually need pay more for laptops
2) Laptops will also need to endure more wear and tear as they're mobile and will be probably be dropped or slip out of hand some time and ya need worry more about damages
3) And importantly, i think it's easier to keep an eye on what kid's are doing on a computer when it's a desktop!

Look for a laptop that you can afford with at least one of the above, 2GB of memory for Windows Vista and the mobility processor of your choice. The farther you go down the list the faster and more expensive the video will be. All the recognized brand names I saw where $2000.00 and up.

Hi, so I'm in the process of purchasing a laptop for University and was hoping someone could help me out with a couple questions I have.

1) How does the AMD Turion? 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 (1.8GHz/1MB), perform against the Mobile AMD Sempron? Processor 3500+? Would both perform well for a school laptop?

2) How much better is the ATI RADEON® Xpress1270 HyperMemory? than the ATI RADEON® Xpress1150 with 256MB HyperMemory? Would both be good enough for basic office and internet use?

3) Is the AMD Turion? 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 (1.8GHz/1MB) with the ATI RADEON® Xpress1270 HyperMemory? worth about 150$ more than the Mobile AMD Sempron? Processor 3500+ and ATI RADEON® Xpress1150 with 256MB HyperMemory? Should I not bother with the upgrade for 150$?

Thanks in advance for helping me out. Most of this stuff goes right over my head!

1. A sempron is a much older (single core chip). The turion is far better.

2. Any laptop is capable of graphics for basic office and internet use. Even cheap ones.

3. yes. Ensure you maximize the RAM on any laptop you buy. It would also be wise to buy a faster rpm hard drive.

4. Please post in the correct forum next time. (mobile computing)

Hey guys.


I want to get a laptop to use for school projects (like slideshows and videos), gaming (H2V, CS:S) and surfing the web (do people still say that?) and I'd like to hear from someone who knows more about it than me about how mush it would cost.

Here's an extensive list of what I'd like it to have:
- Windows Vista Home Premium (there's $300 already)
- At least a 3Ghz CPU
- Mid- to high-end graphics card (GeForce 8600 maybe)
- A good sound card (nothing fancy)
- At least a 120-160GB hard drive, reasonably fast (say 7200 RPM, is that fast?)
- At least 4GB of RAM
- A relatively small screen size (18-21") so I don't have to be carrying around a huge bag
- Decent networking capabilities (good enough to download stuff, play games online and use my school's wireless)


I hope I didn't miss anything. I don't know much about laptops so any advice or insight is helpful.

On Apple's website there's a thing where you can play with upgrades and a few other settings to customize your computer, and it tells you how much it would cost. But Macs are lousy for gaming so I tried to find a thing like that for PC laptops but had no luck.

Thanks!
 

A:How much can I expect to pay for a laptop for school and games?

Dude, how much are you planning on spending? Those are some pretty heavy specs for a lappy. I really don't think you need quite that specs for basic gaming (though definitely get someone else's opinion, I only know from what I've looked at and such). but try Dell, they've got some pretty good deals. however, if you really do want even higher specs, you might wanna try something like Alienware.
Again, I'm no expert, but for a lappy those are some pretty high end specs.

Oh yeah, lol. BTW, if I understood you right...you're talking 4-5 grand.

So lets say I know that security is a joke in a way. I have a basic firewall. I have a router (with built in firewall) I have anti virus.

But... it slows my computer down so .... if I want to keep my computer safe when downloading files, browsing websites, this is a laptop so it will be going places at some point.

What do you rec. website or downloads for basic security? Is

Microsoft security essentials, windows firewall, and malware enough? In cunjunction with a router at home with a firewall?

I read about sand boxing and I do have avast (but I disabled it for speed issues) so what about running commando and so forth. I mean... it seems silly to install a ton of programs if it makes it so I can't even use the internet. Also is crome a safe browser or should I be using Firefox?

My fear is simply a virus that messes up my computer, someone getting into my email account and sending virus's out.. that kind stuff...

:P hehe just curious if there is a good website to read up on this stuff for.

If what I got will keep me safe from bios passwords and highjacking software im cool. I don't got anything worth stealing I don't order online or anything... so any info be great. (computer will be used for school soon though) don't want people messing with it for sure.... but at the same time important It doesn't get bogged down

A:so what if im parnoid? Keep my laptop safe at school

Heres my answer..

If you are not really sure if the a website is infected or not go here http://www.virustotal.com/ Using this website, you can check and verify if the website that you are trying to visit has a malware,rootkit,trojans,adware and spywares.

For some reason you need to delete your prefetch and temp files so that it will not cosume your computers memory (Performance problems.)

Click start, type on the start search or run "%temp%" without the quotation mark
Select all then hit delete. Noticed that some you can't delete all of them. Its fine. Just press skip.

Click start, type on the start search run. then on run type "prefetch" without the quotation mark

I'm going to buy a laptop for school use in college, but I'm not sure how to choose the right laptop, I know that the minimum amount of RAM should be at least 2GB and I also heard that i3, i5, i7's are good to use too. My friend also told me that Lenovo is a very good and trusted brand for laptops but what else should I look for? What other brands/manufactures for laptop are trustworthy? main question is what to look for so that it isn't going to be 'OUT' in a few years. Thanks a lot!

Hi

Can anyone advise me on how to get rid of the trojan virus? Recently i went to the net and downloaded an .exe file which immediately started a cascade of virus infiltration and my windows XP firewall was suddenly disabled.

My AVG (free) antivirus detected the viruses n managed to heal them. But after that incident, some of my software cant be opened and when i went to enable my firewall in the control panel, an error box stating that "an unidentified problem has occured..." appears and does not allow me to enter the firewall settings in the control panel.

I scanned my system with my microsoft antispyware but nothing was found. When I read up more abt these trojan horse, i ended up downloading 'spyware doctor' which amazingly managed to detect 67 critical trojan horses infections.
The names of the infections are Trojan.Dropper.Small.AEK explorer.exe , Trojan.Mailbot, Trojan.Dropper.Small.AEK, Trojan.Proxy.Lager.f and Trojan.Downloader.Agent.QN , which each has infected many files.

Good evening Tech Support Guy forums. Here is one for you. I am using a laptopt that is used at a school. The owner (member of staff) can connect to the schools wireless internet but not the one here at home. The computer is running XP Pro and I'm a Linux guy so I'm stumped.

Bascially the wireless card picks up the router, connects and tells me the signal strength is great and all is well. That is not the case. When trying to get anywhere on the net I get the old could not find server page. I have taken an ethernet cable out of the back of one of the other machines and plugged it into the laptop. I need to tell it to not use proxy at all and to automatically detect settings. That is fine but the owner needs the wireless. Like I said the card works fine at the school. Here it won't. I told it to not look for hte proxy and get the settings automatically. We have other machines that connect to the router wirelessly and the router itself assigns the laptop an IP.

Can anyone help me fix this and get it all sorted?

The card is D-Link Airplus DWL-G650+ and the router is a Belkin F5D7230-4 Wireless G router.

Any help much appreciated.
Thanks

Ironfist

I'm trying to help my sister fix a problem with her PC, and am stuck in a problem.

The PC was her earlier school-laptop, but after finishing school, she bought it legally from the school. It still has the school setup, and it's not possible to boot from the XP-CD. Even though the install-cd is inserted in the drive, the PC boots to the ordinary partition. Entering "Boot Device Options" only lets me choose between "Notebook Hard Drive" and "Notebook Ethernet". Clicking "BIOS Setup", this message appears:

"User ID: BIOS Administrator
Enter password:"

Neither I nor my sister knows the admin password. The tech-desk at her school is closed, so we can't get help from there. This is really frustrating, it's her computer and she have legally bought it from the school, so this shouldn't been a problem! I've also tried to enter the admin account without password, but of course it's password protected... Is there any way for me to format and reinstall the OS without the need for the admin password (legally, without hacking)?

So basically got my school laptop yesterady, the internet worked fine at school but when I came home it wouldn't work. When I came to school again today it worked, when I came home again it wouldn't.

The internet connection showed that it was connected () but I don't got internet acess. Some restarts I have internet (pretty slow) just on the beginning, sometimes pages just loads forever or very long without connecting and sometimes it just loads a little bit and says network error.

I've been working with trying to fix it all day yesterday and like one hour today, and now I just want to get it done so I came here to make a thread. My network is fine with the computers/telephones in my house so it's not the router.

I've tried to use the windows network error checking tool, it just says that the strandard gateway isn't available (which is not getting automatically resolved) and it identifies a problem aswell that the connection between the router and internet has disconnected.

I have tried to...

* Restarted
* Changing battery network card settings to high priority
* Disconnecting, reconnecting
* Re-typing wifi password
* Deactivating ipv6
* Using a DNS
* Few CMD commands
* Changing an option called "dulex/rulex someting" or something that tells how much mb/s you should receive (or something like that) from router to automatically detect to 100mb/s, didn't make any difference either

This is quite simple - The School is using a proxy within Internet Explorer. You must have admin rights for this to work.

On Internet Explorer, - Tools - Internet Options - Connections - LAN Settings - Untick the bottom box (Proxy)

Close and re-open IE, everything should be working.

Make sure you make a note as you will need to re-tick the box when you're next at school.

Hey,

The budget is about 700?-900?, but it is quite variable, as I can go higher if it is really worth it.

Thanks in advance,

If anyone could help me with this issue i would be really thankfull (: (sorry for my bad english)

A:School laptop blocking everything, need help with admin rights and cmd

Hi Steneman,

I work at as an IT administrator for a school district so i understand what you're going through. Those restrictions are in place because that laptop is school property (for now) or because the IT department does not allow people to bring their own devices for the network.

long story short... those restrictions are there so you cant do anything to the computer they don't want you doing (such as downloading pirated content or software that is not legal). You will probably have to deal with it for now, or hack the computer. Id advise not trying to hack it though because if they find out the consequences may be even more frustrating (such as no network access).

Sorry I couldn't be more help as far as getting you up and playing but its just one of those suck-suck situation.

Hello TechGuy's,

I read some other posts but they were similar like mine but not the same, that is why i posted over here and i didnt want to try it by myself without your help.

I just got attacked by a virus yesterday while i was trying to watch a High Stakes Poker Episode online.
The video player when i clicked play sent me to download a file, flash player of some kind. It sounded suspicious to me so i ignored the download, i clicked play again, and it came up again so i downloaded it.
I scanned it with ESET twice and Anti Malware twice again. Nothing came up on the scan. So i installed it and from that point on i couldn't open Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. The only way i can open the browser is if i go to my documents and type the address in the address bar.
I've scanned my laptop but nothing comes up.

If you guys tell me to install any program, please tell me if i should uninstall my antivirus so that my laptop wont crash.

Anyother info you need just pls ask..

Thnx for the help.
 

A:Got attacked by a virus

It's okay now.
I fixed it with Eset, i kept searching and found it.

This is where i got the virus, from the first file.
