Virus, or something ...

Dear Readers,

My laptop has been "affected" since Friday or Saturday. It has slowed down so much that I can't blog effectively.

I've been doing my postings using the Blackberry, which is why I can't do links and download pics. I will only be able to do them when I use the pc at the Blog House.

Please bear with me while we try to identify what's affecting the laptop.

  1. Bro punya laptop kena virus. Si Jeff Ooi hilang mobile phone.

    Macam ada konspirasi sahaja?

    Bro cubalah Ubuntu Linux.

    Yeah, Spybot S&D is a good first start, but you also want to do multiple screening.

    AVG's Anti-Trojan will also be a good supplement. Also trya rootkit scanner.

    Run these suckers in Safe Mode and you'll stand a god chance of nipping this thing in the bud.

    Here's a link of good, reviewed Freeware where you may download some useful programs for this task.

    Good luck.

    My guess is Spyware. You got Kazaa or something that is P2P?

    Bro, I've just finished watching the most pathetic speech by pak lah at the launch of the barisan manifesto...full of slip ups, and not convincing at all.

    Even those present don't look convinced, soft claps here and there.

    All bn images are those projects undertaken by mahathir - what has abdlah done in the last 3 yeras?

    BN's new slogan!

    Vote for BN! Follow the blind-sleepyhead, keep moving forward to oblivion!

    Very catchy, don't you think?

    Use this for temporary quick 'fix'. It has 15-days trial, enough to see you thru erection.

    (use the "Zonealarm Internet Security Suite")

    Do consider the possibility of 'problem' with your broadband account. Service provider has full control over this.

    Brew,

    Don't be stupid. Get your hand on the rich pickings from the BN MONEYfesto. Buy yourself a new laptop. Takkan nak puas hati dengan kain batik dan lawatan sehari ke Wang Kelian? Tanya Affendi Nawawi berapa dia dapat sebelum berhenti -- a cool RM20 million from Talam man! Apa satu laptop free pun tak boleh dapat ka? Jangan bikin malu KJ la.

    Rocky Bro

    Get help quickly from some IT chap you trust. Don't bring to a shop.

    Secondly, my advice, install these two programmes:

    NORTON GOBACK.. or similar programme so that if there is a crash, you can revert to earlier time

    Norton Ghost: Always backup...at least once every three days... since you serve the net with the internet more often than not.Get a 160G portable hard disk

    Cleanup: Clean up your Registry... you can use: System Mechanic 7 or Registry Mechanics or any of those programmes that clean registry.

    Zone Alarm suite 7.0 is good for anti-hacking or internet protection.

    I use Norton Antivirus against virus ( ie email intrusion).

    Actually, it just came through my mind other than virus ...

    1. It could also be you are running too many application at the background without having enough RAM. This does slow down your computer, especially if you are having an old system while running too many newer desktop application.

    2. Some "share-rights" (some people may call like to call them "free") actually does run some kind of information collection from your computer at the background to justify their software to be use freely. Too many of such downloaded application installed in your computer does slow it down as well.

    ... hope that helps you to find out what happened to your laptop ... cheers ... :)

  27. I am trying to understand how Rocky`s ailing computer and Jeff`s loss of his mobile is a conspiracy!

    How is it that when one`s computer got infected with 'whatever', it is not the owner`s fault and how is it that when one loses one`s mobile, it is not the owners carelessness.

    It is always a conspiracy!
    OMG

    Rockyfella, the blogger community are having a field day feeding off the phone connections of BN Bolehland this GE12. I won't be surprised if the powers that be disconnect all of us from the Internet to seek alternative opinions and intel on the polls.

    The BN is evil, sly and cunning -they will stop at nothing to blow you guys to smithereens even with C4. Altantuuya is just one good example.

  30. Hi Bro Rocky,

    I think you might be my neighbour..or somewhere near my house.. since I always saw u getting ur regular TT at some regular mamak stall near equine.(al-something restaurant.. ;) )

    If you want me to take a look at what's wrong with your laptop..

    just email me at this id using gmail or gtalk.

    i will be more that happy to spend sometime doing some troubleshooting for u.. a lot's of probability.. but.. physically checking it would be my best method of troubleshooting.. (either hardware, software..or other issue..)
