Norton/Security Essentials detects the Virus Help!


Recently I got a virus that seems to create a temporary file inside the application data area. When Norton detects the file it deletes. I then restart my pc and discover in the process that it has a different file name, IE: (61e.exe) I do not know if the virus changes its file name and tries to trick the protector. I also tried to use Malwarebytes. It detects the virus, but does not delete to restart the computer.

Anyway, I can't seem to find the root of this virus and I was wondering if someone could help.

Best regards



It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus at a time program. In more than one program antivirus active in memory uses additional resources and may result in program conflicts and false virus alerts. Your best defense against computer viruses and malware is to keep your up-to-date virus definitions and run AV Auto-Protect. If you choose to install more than one anti-virus on your computer program, only one of them should be active in memory at a time. (The AV module, which is active in memory is called Auto-Protect. Other antivirus programs will have different names for this function.)

    Is it possible to change the parameters of the scheduled scan of the Microsoft Security Essentials from the command line or in a script?

    I know that I can use the command to schedule the MpCmdRun.exe tool command line to run, but that do not change or remove the existing scheduled scan that appears in the software.

  • Impossible to update of Windows Media Player and Microsoft Security Essentials and the error is "access denied error 80070005."

    Apparently an involuntary change of administrative privileges or permissions (Windows XP Pro, SP3) keeps me updated Media Player version 9 to 11 v. and updated virus Security Essentials definitions.
    For Media Player, wmsetup.log reports access denied error 80070005 and UpdSpAPI.log reports access denied for the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Settings\MP3Encoding\LowRate registry key. In regedt32, I'm blocked from display HKLM\...\MediaPlayer\Settings and below, and "are allowed to view the current permission settings, but... can make a change." Except that I can't. I can enter the change but get «...» Access is denied"trying to apply them. So this is the first problem that I need help.

  • My Norton security suite and the toolbar Norton will work with the new Firefox?

    A previous version of Firefox eliminated my Norton toolbar and I had to reload an older version of Firefox to get it back. I've been reluctant to upgrade to newer versions of Firefox because of this problem. You are now compatible with Norton?

    It depends on what version on Norton you have: I have Norton Security Suite (not to be confused with Norton 360). Free Norton Security Suite is available to Comcast customers. Updates following Norton Security seem to be a bit behind Norton 360. Norton said currently their Norton 360 product can be updated using Live Update and the toolbar does not work in Firefox 22, but this does not seem to solve the problem of the toolbar with Norton Security Suite. It is a very frustrating issue that is causing me does not want to update to Firefox.

    You can use restore points to return Windows XP to a previous state when your computer was working properly. System Restore takes a "snapshot" critical system files and some program files and registry settings, and then it stores this information as restore points. If your computer is not working properly, you can use these points to return Windows XP to a previous state when your computer was working properly restore.

    How to restore Windows XP to a previous state:

    Note System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail messages, documents or photos. You can only restore files that you have deleted if you have made backups of these files.

    Thank you.

  • Take off a laptop M4700 Win 7 of trend and put Microsoft Security Essentials on the results in a freeze during startup

    I have a laptop Dell Precision M4700 which came with Win 7 x 64 final. He also provided Trend AV software. When I try to remove the trend, it seems to have problems, but after a reboot, it seems to be off the system. Then, I try to install MSE which seems fine and can even update and run a scan. However, the first time that I reboot after installation, the system hangs on "Starting Windows" screen I reinstalled but unfortunately the recorded windows also includes the trend s/w and it shows the same problem.

    I still have an old Latitude D830 that I have upgraded to Win 7 x 64 Ultimate. It works fine MSE. He had no preloaded trend and drivers are a little different due to different materials,

    Any ideas?

We can use the uninstall tools provided by the manufacturer of Trend antivirus software to uninstall the software and then install Microsoft Security Essentials.

  • Host detects the virus that is ran in the virtual machine

    When I google search for "virus to test download" and open the 2nd link in my windows 7 VM, avast on my host computer is like VIRUS DETECTED. I'm guessing that this occurs because the virtual computer uses the internet hosts.

    PS: it was once my I.T. teacher told me that he was sure navigation in a virtual machine.

    Host antivirus can detect the test virus in the network traffic and also could detect when the VM saves on hard drive of the virtual machine (which, after all, is stored just as a set of files on the hard drive of the host).  Some antivirus programs scan even the memory used by all processes running, in which case it can also discover that the test virus from the data in the memory of the virtualization engine.  None of these situations are a source of real concern for the host.

    Navigation in a virtual machine is generally considered safe from the point of view of the host, but virtualization will do nothing to directly protect the OS itself invited to malware that it can capture.

    Note that VMware Workstation has a few features that deliberately to break the isolation barrier and could expose the host to a malicious client.  If you are worried about it, a good starting point to lock the virtual computer is to go in the settings of the virtual machine, choose the Options tab, make sure the shared folders is disabled (under Guest insulation), make sure that the Clipboard and features drag-and - drop are disabled.

    See you soon,.

Wait until you get to the B & W screen, when choose Mode safe mode with networking. Which leaves download then in Safe Mode and you should get past the obstruction.
