Q: stepped in it ..Again :{

I clicked on a photo yesterday on a google search results screen when a notice popped up saying that there was a potential virus, initially I thought it was a waring from my Verizon Security Suite, so I clicked on Quarenteen...in hind sight, I think this warning was somthing different.
Now, my computer has a couple processes that are called avgidsagent.exe and avgidsmonitor.exe running on it. I think this is a Trojan virus. I have Verizon Internet Security Suite Running, I have scanned the computer twice but these processes are still running.
I did not get a attach.txt report after running DDS and DDS hung my PC twice trying to get it.

Preferred Solution: stepped in it ..Again :{

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: stepped in it ..Again :{


Please do the following:

Download ComboFix from one of the following locations:
Link 1
Link 2

VERY IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:
Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.

I'm after making a 3D model of my house, for various design/DIY reasons, in addition to improving my skills, but I was hoping to find some freeware that would allow me to then step inside my virtual home as a human correctly scaled. A decent set of design tools to fairly accurately build my home, with WASD/Mouse move controls to explore the map after etc, would be perfect

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Many Thanks

Not a one, and nary a clue. However, these links might be a place to start your quest: http://www.softpedia.com/ and http://sourceforge.net/

My cat stepped on ma keyboard and it did something weird, it keep going around on a black screen with a loading simbol and it says windows can't start, I am currently factory resetting it but idk if that is the correct thing. Help major. For windows 10, no message just, there was a problem loadindlg windows, continue startup or see advanced options

A:cat stepped on keyboard now Windows won't load

Hi, and welcome to TSG.

A less drastic measure may have been a better first choice of action, but it is too late now. Trying to stop a factory reset could cause even bigger problems.

Should you ever find yourself in a similar situation, going into advanced options and seeing if there is a choice to repair Windows might be a better first move.

Took some security updates, also updated my own security suite (CA Internet Security), now my Firefox browser is using it's default theme. I tried going into the add-ons and telling Firefox to use either PitchDark or MidnightFox (my favorite), no luck. I tried installing them over again, the installation failed. I tried disabling my CA security suite (both firewall and anti-virus modules), still looking at this insipid pale blue screen.
I hope someone can help me discover the glitch..
Thanks in advance,

A:Solved: Firefox stepped out of the lovely dark!

My APC battery backup UPS needs a new battery, and I'm considering getting a new unit, as mine is approaching 5 years old. I've been reading that standard UPS devices put out a stepped sine wave that can cause issues and possible damage or reduced lifespan with newer Active PFC Power Supplies and LCD monitors. Cyberpower make some that output a "pure sine wave" that is supposed to be better for PFC hardware. Is this really an issue I should be concerned with?

There are 2 UPS units from Cyberpower I'm looking at - 1 has 12 outlets which gives me 2 more than I currently have, which I could definitely use. But it only puts out a standard stepped sine wave. Then there's a similar one with only 10 outlets that outputs a "pure sine wave". Is it worth getting the pure version and losing 2 outlets, or is it not as important as some are saying? I want to do what's best for my equipment of course, especially because I tend to get random power outages for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes fairly often - enough to warrant owning one of these units.

A:UPS advice - stepped sine wave or pure?

You really don't need to pay that kind of money. A "pure" sine wave is no better or worse then a stepped sine wave. Not to a properly designed power supply. A properly made power supply filters the incoming power and filters the out going power. In either case the power from an APC is cleaner then what is coming from the Mains directly.

So here is my advice. Forget the sine wave nonsense and get what you can afford that gives you the backup time you need.
