Is this a virus? How to clean/erase computer?

A few days ago my computer started doing strange things when I was using firefox. The page would scrow up/down by itself while I tried to read/write anything. I thought it could be a virus but I have Norton up to date and nothing showed up, I also used spybot search&destroy and “cookies” showed up and were fixed/deleted..

I deleted all history, cookies and everything else I could think of could be the source (including unistalling most programs) and used my recovery cd to re-install windows xp overwriting the old copy last night. Today I’m having the same problem. I’ve scanned it with norton and spybot and had the same results as before.

Is this a virus? The only thing it does is move firefox while I’m not doing it. Then it stops and restarts after a while.

How can I delete everything on this computer and reinstall windows to make sure it’s all gone? I have the installation cd but it appears it only touches whatever is under the windows folder.

See http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/install-reinstall-uninstall

Beofre you reinstall windows scan your PC with Malwarebytes and see if it finds anything.
Malwarebytes free version.

Malwarebytes does a deeper scan then spybot.

Will changing of Product Key erase all files in the computer?

Just a few days ago, my computer broke down and have it repaired. After repairing, I found that my Windows XP Professional is not genuine. I knew that it was not genuine because I can’t download some programs such as Windows Defender and Internet Explorer 7. However, I still have the sticker (which contains the Product ID for Windows XP Home Edition) pasted on my CPU. I was wondering if this KeyUpdateTool.exe from http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/purchase/UpdateInstructions.aspx could really help me to turn my Microsoft Windows XP Professional software to genuine.

Note: My current edition is Windows XP PROFESSIONAL Edition (which has invalid product key). I was wondering if I use the product key (from the sticker) for Windows XP HOME Edition could turn my pirated Windows XP PROFESSIONAL Edition to genuine Windows XP PROFESSIONAL Edition, not to genuine Windows XP Home Edition.

Is this possible?
Oh ya, one more thing. If that is possible, will all my files be erased?

you can,t change the product key cos its xp pro , and xp home . you have to format C: driver and install windows xp home with the key mentioned in the product lable . probbaley all other software aslo you have to install freshlly. whatever data you want to keeep move to other driver before your formating the C: drive

Three Things You Can Do to Keep Your Computer Running at Maximum Performance

Although there are many things that can affect the performance of your computer, there are a few simply things you can do each month to help keep your computer running at maximum performance. This article will focus on two problems that impact the performance of your computer and will then explain what you can do about it.

Problem #1: Computer Hard Disk Files

Your computer is always writing information to your hard disk, no matter what you do. Your computer attempts to keep all file information in the same location on your hard drive. As you add and delete files, blank spaces are left between your files. As you add new programs or files, your computer tries to use these blank spaces.

Over time, this reading and writing of files can affect the way your computer performs. The files eventually become scattered in multiple locations on your hard disk rather than in the same location.

Your computer will still find the information. However, the more scattered the information becomes on your hard drive, the more accesses your computer has to make to find (and gather) the information. This requires your hard disk to work harder and do more reading/writing than is necessary. It will slow down your computer by as much as 200% and causes increased wear and tear on your hard drive.

Problem #2: Spyware

If you use the Internet, at some point you will download a file or software program onto your computer. Sometimes you will know something is being downloaded to your computer. Other times you will have no idea. (Although this article will not talk about small files called “cookies”, you may want to look up information on this subject. Cookies are written onto your computer from the Internet.)

Free computer programs (often referred to as Freeware) are a big hit on the Internet. Every day thousands of users download these “free programs”. Although there are some great freeware programs, these programs often have advertisements or tracking code associated with their use. The term “Spyware” refers to programs that gather information about your computer and (Internet) surfing habits without your knowledge. This information is then sold to a third party company as a means of generating revenue.

The problem with Spyware is that it also impacts the performance of your computer. It can make your computer very sluggish and unresponsive.

Three Steps to Improved Computer Performance

Now that we’ve discussed two problems that affect the performance of your computer, let’s discuss three things you can do to get your computer performance back to normal. You should do these three steps in the order presented. Ideally, you should repeat them about once a month or whenever you notice a change in your computer’s performance.

Step #1: Delete Spyware

The first thing you should do is to delete spyware files or programs from your computer. To do this, you can use a free software program such as Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition from LavaSoft. To get the program, go to www.download.com and search for “Ad-Aware SE” (without the quotes). Select “Download Now” and follow the installation instructions. Once the program is installed, you can scan your computer for spyware files. Then, you can select and delete them from your computer.

Note #1: Always be sure to use the “Check for updates now” option to keep your program current.

Note #2: You need to be aware that when you delete spyware files, some of those “free” programs you downloaded may not continue to work correctly. If you have a program you’ve downloaded and want to continue to use, check very carefully what you select to delete from the “Scanning results” once the scan has been completed.

Step #2: Clean up your Hard Disk

Once the spyware is removed, you need to clean up temporary and unwanted files from your hard disk. To do this on your windows PC, select the start option in the lower left hand corner of your computer screen. Then, select the program option. Under the program option, select “Accessories”. Under the “Accessories” option, select “System Tools”. From the System Tools option, select “Disk Cleanup”.

Select the drive you want to clean from the pull-down menu and select OK. Usually, this is Drive C. If you have more than one hard drive, select one at a time. This program will then scan your computer for files that could be erased from your computer. You can safely erase all temporary and Recycle Bin files. You can also check the box of any other files you want the program to erase.

Step #3: Defrag your Hard Disk

Once all the spyware and temporary files are removed, you need to defrag your hard disk. This process simply rewrites your computer files so they are no longer scattered all over your hard disk, but are written in the same location for quick sequential access.

To defrag your hard disk on your windows PC, select the start option in the lower left hand corner of your computer screen. Then, select the program option. Under the program option, select “Accessories”. Under the “Accessories” option, select “System Tools”. From the System Tools option, select “Disk Defragmenter”. First, select the hard drive from your computer. Usually, this is Drive C. However, many computers have multiple hard drives. Select one at a time.

You can select “Analyze” to have the program check out the hard drive and see if it needs to be defragged. The program will prompt you at the completion of its analysis. Use the defragment option as prompted.

Note: If you’ve never used this option before, I would recommend that you select the defragment option.

Once, you’ve completed these three steps, your computer and hard disk should be able to operate at maximum performance. Don’t forget to repeat these steps at least once a month or whenever you notice a change in your computer’s performance

Erase Google Internet Tracks History

Do other search engines besides google store information on the internet?

Every account you make or I guess history that can pop up when you search it somewhere, would that stay somewhere in the internet even if you delete you account/profile?

Like if you contacted Google to remove it from their history, will it be erased completely on the internet?

Well I did ask the websites customer support and they said that google will remove them when they realize it no longer exists , which could take up to days , weeks , months, or even years.

But do any other search engine website like Google keep track of all the history?

and please still answer my first few questions.

Some keep considerably more information than Google. The purpose of Google is to find stuff currently on the internet. The website Archive.org is designed for researching the history of the internet and they don’t delete information no matter how old. They aren’t nearly as complete as Google, but they will show you stuff that’s long since been deleted.

I’ve used it as part of legal practice several times. Just because a defendant takes something off their website doesn’t mean it’s gone.
