My macafee was down when I downloaded something.
-a notification came up saying "system32 is corrupt"
- now my computer restarts at random times, when I'm on the Internet
- I tried combofix but it didn't help.

What should I do? I believe it's a virus

I uninstall google chrome, and then tried to download it again and I keep getting an error

You don't use any addons. I'm assuming you're referring to the ones in your toolbar; all you have to do is save it to your toolbar as you normally would, so you'll see the icon and then the site name. Then right click > properties > then just erase the name and save it. Voila. Icon only.

avg, malware blocker, and spyware terminator pretty much handle everything for me.


AVG has kind of fallen off as an anti-virus. Avira and Microsoft Security Essentials are considered to be the best free anti-virus programs right now; MSE actually has really good reviews. I currently use Avira, but will probably switch to MSE at some point.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

I would recommend Avira instead of AVG.

anyway, most people don't need to use real-time virus protection, more important is to have good firewall, locked ports, run application in sandbox and SOMETIMES scan like on-demand-only suspicious files.

came here to recommend MacKeeper for all the mac users on here.

it has a bunch of dope features to help you keep your mac clean and running smooth, like proper uninstall, duplicate file deleter, a complete systen scan and clean, and my personal favorite is the anti theft app thats integrated into it.

if someone steals your macbook, you log in to your zeobit account (free to make) from a diff. comp, it will track the whereabouts of your mac using wifi and also auto snap a picture of whoever is using it. then it sends that info to your email, you print it out, bring it to the cops --or handle it yourself *nudgewink*-- and vadaboom you got you mac back.

Do you mean just upgrading the memory/video card? You must have to check the power supply :x

I suggest that you just save $350 and you can get a cheap desktop (home/browsing) that can handle the low requirement games such as league of legends.

For $600 you can get a decent gaming computer that handles most of the new games on med settings with frame rates around 40.

You're better of starting off fresh with a new build TBH. Only thing you can really do with what you've got is add a video card. Although with those specs, it might still be AGP.

anybody have a external hard drive for their laptop, does it help to keep you computer running fast?
July 14, 2011 @ 11:01:45
Im not sure if it goes here, but its a computer problem i guess. Is there a program to get more internet connection thru wifi than someone whos connected to the modem? Cause I think my brother has that. Im not being paranoid but whenever my brother plays League of Legends he complains for a while about lagging while were just doing regular stuff, but after a while, the computer connected to the wifi thru ethernet cable, (yes my computers old) looses any kind of connection, but he gets to play regularly. so is there something like that cause i wanna get that. if it helps our service is verizon with an actiontec modem

I would actually suggest the Comodo Internet Security Suite (which is now free) or Avast (also now free, however I don't like it too much) over MSE and Avira; you get more features out of them. I've been using Comodo for about a year and am highly pleased with their anti-virus component in addition to their already existing (and award-winning) firewall component. Avast was good when it first became free, but now I feel its become too "commercialized". AVG is just a joke now.

You don't have to stay off porn, you just have to know where to get your porn, i.e. knowing where to go and what to click/download(also what not to click/download) and having proper security software
