Whenever I start my computer.it threatens me about SPYWARE INFECTED message...I havent installed any ANTISPYWARE yet...I "ll do it in a day or two..inshallah..

My problem is that while I am using net,suddenly a message appears which is

GENERIC HOST WIN32 HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM..SO ALL PROGRAMS MUST BE CLOSE..

and then my net disconnects and it dosnt reconnect until I restart my computer!!!

Is this due to spyware attack????

GENERIC HOST WIN32 HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM i was having this problm too som time ago and why it z irritating the most that it disconnects u from internet eventhough the 2screens in right lower corner keeps blinking this problem can b due to several reasons & it z not particular of spyware.u try to google search and u will find different solutions actualy this error z one of fatal errors which z not easy to resolve u better install a new and good copy of windows if u can thatz best solution i think.About anitviruses i hav used b4 AVG and now i m using AVAST but my experience tells that avast z far better then AVG in protection it detects viruses most of time.

avast will not clean viruses that are already there on the computer

try nod32!


#5

nod32 and kaspersky

use both of them

1st use kaspersky

perform a clean sweep then use nod32 and perform clean sweep

and keep nod32 it eats less memory

and do keep an anti spyware like spyware doctor or else with an AV

In future, be careful about the software you install. You never know which legitimate-looking software will install a malware on your system or screw up your registry.
