1. what anti-virus software is installed on the computer?

You can download and run a full scan of the system using the Microsoft Safety Scanner and check if this helps to eliminate the Virus.

Microsoft safety scanner


The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

You can also consider to download Microsoft Security Essentials, which offers protection in real time for your home or small office PCs.

    Hi templar_39,

    DM (Message Delivery) file types are not Windows files, they can be generated by a third-party program.

    This particular file type is often associated with audio data and can be hosted on some cell phones to be used as ringtones or multimedia clips. To my knowledge, these files can be generated by your mobile phone.

    Note: you can go ahead and remove these files only if you notice that the files do not contain any important information.

    If this happens without connect you all devices (like mobile PHONES), this may be a virus or malware activity. You can run a virus scan to get rid of them

    Step 1: A scanner online for any threat and try to correct

    Thank you, and in what concerns:

  • How can I manually remove Ubuntu on my PC in Windows 8?

    Recently I've briefly toyed around with Ubuntu 12.04 for a bit, and after navigating my way through multiple errors, I finally found that I was unable to run Windows as a missing file or something in that sense. I then refreshed Windows followed to successfully remove the "Grub Loader", however I am now finding me impossible to remove "Ubuntu" in the list of the operating systems that display at startup. I have no program in my list of programs and features as a result of the update and no chance of finding an effective method to eliminate Ubunto elsewhere have had so far.

    Could someone give me preference simple indications (as I am not too familiar with some of the more complicated aspects of Windows) as to how I would like to manually remove Ubuntu. Also what I read I was informed that Ubuntu change my partitions or something of the sort? (I'm not familiar with what they are). If this is the case, can someone help me to restore to their original state I'm naïve about how do it safely.

    I'll also add that if this is the easiest option and I have confirmed that it will fix everything, I'm ready to completely restore my PC.

    Thank you.


    To remove Ubuntu from the start menu, please follow instructions below:

    1. run CMD as administrator. Start screen open by moving your mouse to the corner at the bottom left of the screen, and then type cmd after he found prompt commands, right-click on it and select "run as Administrator" from the menu at the bottom of the screen.

    For your case simply only replace the {1476af63-e5bc...}. in the command above.

  • How can I delete / remove the Java Deployment Toolkit plugin in Firefox

    This plug in has been disabled by Firefox, because vulnerability as well so I see no need to keep it on my system and want help in deleting as it doesn't have an option for this. Also when I visit some sites that should be displayed as HTTPS, but they only show that HTTP how can I solve this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you so much see you soon.

    I don't have Java installed on any of my systems, but the following should work again to remove Java Deployment Toolkit on Windows systems. This method removes only the JDK plugin and only in Firefox. You may need to do this after each update because Java always reinstalled JDK with each update. Article: ' do not forget to save this file before deleting you can restore it if something is not '. You may need to delete the file with Firefox closed or you may need to restart Firefox after the deletion to see the change/remove in your list of plugins in Modules > Plugins.

    Also, you should be able to use the Windows search function in the start menu looking for npDeployJava to find this file.

    You can also type about: plugins in the location bar URL and press the Enter key to find the name of the file and its location associated with plugin JDK in the Java/Oracle deal has changed the name of the file.

  • How can I manually remove an update?

    Windows installed a pair of optional of 3rd third-party updates. Problems and I want to delete them. How can I remove updates? I don't see them on the program Panel to install, or I don't see an option to delete, on the Panel to view the update history.

    Hello AlexaRaven,

    A list of the installed updates is available, as said by Loulou, in the installed display updated programs and features.

    Locate the update that you want to delete, and then right-click on it. You should then see an uninstall option that you have to click to uninstall the update.

    It should be recalled, however, that once uninstalled, Windows Update will again offer to install. If you don't want to not re-installed, right-click on the update in Windows Update, and click the option "Hide update". The update will not be installed.
