The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sucky-ass Computer Virus

    I'm having a big-ass problem with my ****in' computer.

    Last week I got this spy-ware deal where everytime I wanted to go to certain websites, it would, say, "Nut-uh, you got spy-ware" and couldn't. (I couldn't check Hotmail, Google, Yahoo...) so I deleted everything--lost everything--and reformatted, and I still have this mother****in' problem.

    (I can access this site, as well as Youtube...and some others.)

    WHat's up?

    Do you have virus protection software? If not, get it and keep it current.

    If I were you I'd find some keywords that have to do with the virus (ie virus file name or website keywords for the page you are referred to) and Google it.
    Usually someone else has also had the problem and has discussed it on a message board or whatnot.

    I can't get to google. If I could, there wouldn't be a problem.

    I have Norton, Ad-aware, and Spybot running, and none of them fixed the problem.

    post the keywords/name here and one of us can google it for you.

    try running hijack this and posting the log here. extract it to your hard drive and run from there. do not fix all the problems it states, many of them are just fine.

    do you have a firewall?

    Hey, thanks a lot for the help.

    I will take a screen cap so to let you guys see what it looks like, but I can't remember where the files get sent after I take screen caps (print screen). Can someone tell me again, and I'll post it up.

    The one I get for Hotmail is different. But, usually, it looks like the one I get for Google. Plus, my computer keeps resetting my home-page as that Google ****.

    I think your hosts file got overwritten. Run the hijack this program and post the log it creates here.

    I ran a scan but I don't know how to post the log here. Help with that. (It popped up like a 100 porn sites which I have never been too--yet--considering this is brand new.)

    Run the first command button in the application(should look like this). A text file should pop up. Select all of the text there and paste it here.

    I think I know the problem, but would like to verify there is nothing else going on.

    Hi, new here.

    Had something like the same problem, your having. It was mostly pop-ups about some porn sites and sometimes my computer froze.

    Decided to Spyware Doctor, AVG, Something called Stinger (Got this from a friend). After i downloaded all these & used them, which are all free. I didn't have a problem at all with my computer. No more pop-ups or computer freeeze ups. Mind you it took some time for them to be finish. But it was worth it for me.

    Hope this helps ya?

    If you still cannot get to google, etc.

    Find this file: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\HOSTS and rename it to anything else.

    HOLY **** BALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (I think the problem might have been that I downloaded a file from rapidshare.com--anyone know what's up with that?)

    How can I keep the computer to stay free of ****ty files? Just keep running that check?

    Do I still want to rename that file you pointed out, or not? What is that file?

    1. Know what you are installing on your computer. Don't randomly download programs, know what they are/do. Run a firewall, virus protection, spyware protection.

    2. In simple terms the HOSTS file redirects your browser. I can change my HOSTS file to redirect the browser from google to a porn site, or from a porn site to a church site, etc... No real need to change it if things are working ok, but you might want to open it in Notepad to make sure.

    So, because that file is fixed it's going to direct me in the right place. If I had renamed it, what would have happened?

    (I was downloading a file from a friend who put it on rapidshare.com so we can transfer the file between us--it's a public-file hosting site. I'd used it before so I wasn't too worried--it might not have been that site though.)

    I used to get loads of crap on my pc even with all the anti virus etc, after every few uses I clear the history, cookies and temp internet files in properties and so far it's been fine.

    It's usually the filth that causes all the problems

    Renaming it would have given the same result. The purpose of running the hijack this program was to see if there was anything else that needed to be cleaned up, but things looked good other than the HOSTS file.

    I cant see how a destructive reformat wouldnt solve this issue, and if that failed a low level format would certaintly fix the issue.

    Could be a couple of different things.

    1. Reformat then restore of a hosed backup.
    2. Reformat then reinstall of a third party software which is the original culprit.

    Usually the best way to find out the problem is check after each program you install.

    So, renaming that file is unnescessary at this point, unless I have a similar situation and the hijack this doesn't work? (Is that program usually free? It's amazing and no one seems to use it--maybe--it was hella fast.)

    It is freeware and widely used to troubleshoot problems that normal avenues don't clear up (Spybot, Adaware, etc...) I wouldn't use hijack this to clear out stuff unless you know exactly what it is. You can use hijack this, think something is unnecessary and end up making your PC into a paperweight, forcing you to reformat yet again.

    If this exact same issue comes up, then renaming the HOSTS file would work. Other issues might take different actions.
