3 Main Causes of Kernel Errors


A kernel error is a failure in some code critical to Windows. If you have ever encountered a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD), then you have seen a kernel error. Windows is actually several layers of programs made to work together. You can think of Windows as if it were your body, with many pieces working together to make a whole, and, like your body, some parts of Windows are more important than others.

The kernel is the most important part of Windows. It includes critical programs to handle things like memory management and device drivers for the graphics card. These programs are like a body’s heart and brain. If something in the kernel crashes, it will often cause all of Windows to crash.

Software Failures

Because there are a lot of programs in the kernel, there are many opportunities for bugs to appear. Although Microsoft does extensive testing to get rid of bugs, their testing facilities cannot run through all the combinations that billions of computers use with Windows when some bugs get through.

However, many of the kernel failures are in device drivers written by companies that make hardware, not by Microsoft. Your graphics card, for example, probably uses a driver created by the video company. These companies often work with Microsoft to test their drivers, but having companies work together adds an additional layer of complexity.

Hardware Failures

A hardware failure can cause a kernel error. If your graphics card fails, it can send bad data to the graphics device driver, which then crashes, creating a kernel error. If your hard disk fails, it can corrupt files used by Windows and cause the programs that use those files to crash.

Registry Failures

Registry failures can cause kernel errors. The registry is a database of information that Windows uses to store information about programs. If the registry gets corrupted, the programs that use it can cause kernel errors.

Registry corruption can come from either software or hardware failures. Software corruption can come from a bug in one of the programs that writes information out to the registry. Or if you turn off your computer without doing a complete shutdown, the registry files may not get completely written to the disk. Hardware corruption can happen when the hard disk fails causing parts of the registry files to be lost. It’s a good idea to do some research on kernel errors and other registry issues.

Can Registry Cleaner Software Help Me Fix My Computer?


Most of us reconciled with computer errors as an unavoidable part of living with technology. You may be surprised to find out that a relatively simple solution can help you clean your computer of errors such as crashing, freezing or the dreaded blue screen of death. But before we discuss the solution, let us discuss the problem.

Most computer issues stem from a part of your computer called “the Windows registry”. The registry is essentially a collection of directions for your computer to follow when opening and running applications. Each program on your computer has several files associated with it. Since the registry is very important, Windows does not delete any parts of it, even when you uninstall a program. Consequently, at any given time, dozens of obsolete files clutter the registry and make it harder for Windows to find any information it needs. This slows things down.

To make matters worst, if you ever had a malware attack on your PC, chances are that corrupt files are still hiding within your registry. Antiviral scans alone cannot rid your computer of these files since the files are expertly disguised as important files within the registry.

The only way to mitigate these issues is by cleaning the registry. But fear not: you do not have to do so manually. In fact, since the registry is such an important part of your computer, it would be best if you did not do manual cleaning (unless of course you are an expert). The registry is big and complex, and manual cleaning increases the likelihood of a mistake. If an important file is erased from your registry, you may have to find an expert to restore your computer.

A simpler solution for these issues involves a type of program called registry cleaner. Registry cleaners are designed to do all the “dirty work” for you by scanning the registry for problems and eliminating them. All you have to do is download a registry cleaner, run it and allow the cleaner to correct issues within the registry.

As a result, your computer will be faster, more secure, and less error-prone. To maintain the computer in this optimum state, it is recommended that you scan the registry at list four times a year. For more information about registry cleaners, you can go to the registry review website. Good luck!

Computer Freezes – Get Rid of Error Message ‘Beginning Dump of Physical Memory’ in a Fast Way


I was quite upset from past few days because my computer was showing this stupid message ‘beginning dump of physical memory’, whenever I used to switch on my system. I was not sure what to do and was also wondering if it could be harmful to my data. I rebooted my system several times, and then restarted my computer. It worked but my happiness was very short lived as it happened again. I was not sure what to do and then I called up my friend ad asked if he could be of any help. He suggested me few things and it worked.

First of all you must understand that this particular message is a hardware alarm. ‘Beginning dump of physical memory’ error message usually comes because of faulty/ loose hardware. You can check few things inside your PC but take appropriate precautions before you start.

  • Check if memory sticks on mother board are placed securely. If yes, clean them using pencil eraser (run it gently & softly along gold pins). Place sticks back in appropriate slots.
  • Dust/ debris inside your PC can slow down the fans thus components may get overheated. Using computer cleaning kits helps and it also makes PC quieter.
  • Insufficient power supply to motherboard or other devices can also affect their proper functioning. Using high wattage or independent supply to device (USB HUB) must help.
  • ‘Beginning dump of physical memory’ error occurs when swap file corresponding to virtual memory gets corrupted because of disk block (fail/ memory error/ disk controller issue).
  • Two incompatible RAM’s can also cause this error or RAM hardware may be requiring new RAM or more RAM.
  • Presence of boot viruses can not be ignored, so use a good antivirus to scan your system thoroughly.
  • Missing/ corrupted.dll file that helps in running programs.
  • Problem with allocation of memory can also show ‘Beginning dump of physical memory’ error message on your PC.

Try these tips to get rid of this error in a fast way. Whatever the reason, if you are not able to sort it out, you can call a computer technician to fix the problem. He would probably take off everything from your computer & would reinstall OS. Next thing that you can do is to download registry cleaner which is available online as it can help preventing many other errors as well. Performing Disk Cleanup and Scan Disk regularly can also prevent number of errors messages.

What Causes a Corrupt Registry?


A cluttered windows registry may slow down the performance of your computer. As the logic goes, as internet raises then freeware comes. There would be redundant entries inside your computer registry. This will go to a decline performance. Hence, you need a registry cleaning program to prevent this problem.

As we all know, the registry is the most important system of every computer. When you install and uninstall programs, they are registered to that system. There are times were we uninstalled a program incompletely, making the computer to freeze. Sometimes, corrupt files come in.

To simply explain the problem, what makes your registry to have corrupt files? Is it due to accident or lack of knowledge about its origin?

First, data stored in your registry can be cluttered. This will lead to a slow down speed of your computer. It is an exception when you installed and programs add new features and options to your computer’s software.

Second, some programs clog up on your storage and start-up operations. This is evident with anti-virus program every time you boot up the system.

Third, when some programs are not properly and completely uninstalled. They can leave bad shortcuts or links to unwanted files to the Windows registry.

Fourth, editing the windows registry or configuring user profiles. It can corrupt the operating system once it is done incorrectly. In addition, malfunction on third party drivers or software.

Lastly, different operations and activities performed account for most of the potential problems in your Windows registry. Malevolent embedded keys may appear once you download malicious programs without your permission.

To make the long story short, registry cleaning software is highly important. This will ensure you prevention for a corrupt registry. It will guarantee a high performing level of your computer as you always use it.

Grandparents Use DNA Analysis to Prevent and Treat Inherited Diseases for Future Generations


Why is DNA Analysis important to me?

Knowing your family’s genetic history may someday save your life or that of someone you love. Based on state-of-the-art genetic technology, a unique DNA Profile can be generated for you to keep for years to come. DNA Storage for up to 25 years is available for future genetic testing, upon your request. What better gift can a loved one leave behind?

What role does DNA have in Funeral Service?

The purpose of this article is to familiarize Funeral Directors about DNA activities, and related areas. Realizing that this technology is what we as caregivers are used to discussing, is a field that is of concern to many of our clients and their families. The vast spectrum of DNA can give us insight on the value it can play in our community. In a series of articles, we would like to give you a basic knowledge about the different but related studies involving DNA.

It takes three generations to determine predisposition to most of the genetic inherited diseases / disorders. It is now known that families should store DNA for future use. Banking specimens containing DNA from the same Family provides invaluable information for the health of current and future offspring. We as Funeral Directors have an opportunity to make a Family aware that such a service is available. After burial, retrieving DNA can be expensive. Obtaining DNA after cremation is much more difficult. The success rate of recovering DNA within the first year of cremation is approximately 50%. Offering storage and or profiling DNA of the deceased, gives Funeral Directors a Unique opportunity to offer a Service that can have a lasting impact on those we serve. If you as a Funeral Director do not see the need for this service, it does not mean that families do not need this service. Statistics tell us that families place a tremendous amount of trust in their Funeral Director. This is because we care so deeply in what we do. Informing a Family of their options, while guiding them through the most difficult times in their life is a responsibility that a Funeral Director accepts and excels in.

It is our hope that Funeral Homes throughout the United States will contact us and give us their input as to the value of DNA in a Funeral service.

Why we firmly believe in what we do.

At the National Funeral Directors Association meeting in October 2001, we outlined all the reasons for the value of DNA storage such as paternity/inheritance, genealogy, missing persons, forensic issues; identification of hereditary disorders, congenital birth defects; predisposition to allergies, mental, metabolic, cardiovascular, bleeding/clotting disorders, genetic cancers, microbial diseases. The potential does not end with the above. Rapidly evolving technologies in cloning pets, stem cell/gene therapy are currently being done, all to improve the quality of life.

Recently we had four interesting success stories…

1. A 62-year-old female dies of complications resulting from Breast Cancer. The deceased women leave 2 daughters and 1 granddaughter. During a “Pre-Need Consultation”, the woman elected to have her DNA profiled and the sample banked.

2 years later; one of the daughters is diagnosed with the same Breast Cancer as the Mother. The second daughter has her DNA profiled and compared to the mothers. It is determined that the second daughter does not have the same genetic structure as the mother that would pre-dispose her to the cancer. However, the Granddaughters DNA is profiled and it is determined that she possesses the same genetic disorder as the Grandmother. Pharmacogenomics and gene therapy are begun to prevent the cancer in the granddaughter before it develops.

2. The mother of a Divorced son was interested in identifying the granddaughter’s father. Was he her husband were her son? We identified her son is the alleged father. This was a “Paternity” issue.

3. The three sons of the deceased lady came to request identification of their mothers remains between two occupants of a gravesite that had collapsed. She passed away seven years ago, so the atypical specimen sources were bone marrow and vertebrae. Procedures were laborious, but we identified their mother. Her remains can now be transferred to another site. This is “Profiling”.

4. A friend’s baby presented with what appeared to be a Bleeding tendency at 3 months of age. The baby was admitted to Children’s Hospital, Cincinnati, extensively treated but expired at age 8 months. An autopsy revealed universal capillary involvement (small blood vessels) by a clotting abnormality resulting in damaging complications in vital organs such as heart, liver and spleen. This leaves a Protein called von Willebrand factor and is coded by a Gene called ADAMSTS 13. The parents are currently being tested for “Mutations” in order to know who transmitted to the gene. The baby’s DNA is currently in storage it doesn’t matter who stores DNA in life and in death provided it is properly collected and stored because although it’s stable, it can be contaminated and it can disappear during purification; this complicates genetic testing. Before the advent of Pharmacogenomics, astute clinicians treating HIV patients relied on drug resistance testing to predict outcomes; complementary to resistance testing his current genotyping, which includes identifying mutations, associated with resistance. In the not-too-distant future, the combination of drug resistance testing and pharmacokinetic testing will provide a better idea of in-vivo relevance of resistance data. Stored DNA lasts forever; it will provide an endless source for multiple testing that will hopefully improve clinical outcomes.


The terms “Pharmacogenomics” and “Pharmacokinetics” are sometimes used interchangeably to describe the analysis of genes involved in drug response.

Pharmacogenomics is more inclusive; it refers not only to the effects of individual genes, but also to complex interaction between genes from every part of the genome affecting drug response.

Pharmacogenomics is an aid to diagnosis and prognosis. Routine diagnosis is not always straightforward. A patient does not always come with textbook type symptoms of the disease. In some cases, a single gene variation has been shown to be responsible for disease, and a Genetic test for this scan confirms the diagnosis as in cystic fibrosis and Huntington’s disease. Sometimes more than one gene is involved, such as to Breast Cancer genes, Alzheimer’s Disease genes, and susceptibility to Migraine genes. The most likely publicly visible contribution of Pharmacogenomics to improved health care would be delivery of a number of drugs coupled to diagnostic tests based on genetic markers for head and neck, pancreatic cancers, and solid tumors.

Pharmacogenomics classifies patients into responders and non-responders to particular therapeutic options. Breast cancers that over express a Protein for the herceptin genes are candidates for monoclonal antibody therapy. The cholesterol-lowering drug PRAVACHOL works according to the number of copies of the transfer protein gene. HIV Phenotyping is an important and practical adjunct to the treatment of AIDS.

Pharmacogenomics can save lives lost to adverse drug events, the 6th leading cause of death in the US. A blood test now enables physicians to tailor a certain drug dosage to their patient’s genetic profiles. However, the cause and effect association remains unknown. Implementation of rapid automated DNA genotyping capabilities still, over time, provides individual genotypes of patients. Clinical data that is properly collected and managed identifies patient subpopulations at risk for adverse events, while allowing others to continue to receive the benefits of pharmaceutical therapy.

Pharmacogenomics and Gene Therapy

Mutation is a change of DNA sequence leading to aberrant or absent expression of the corresponding protein. It is the mutation, not the gene that causes predisposition to disorder/disease. Polymorphism is the quality of existing in several different forms. Sequencing of parts of the genome has demonstrated that some of these polymorphisms are in genes whose functions are important in responses of individual patient to therapy. The pathologist will need to profile common polymorphisms in patients who are beginning therapy for common diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer and infections. The laboratory definition of the genotype/phenotype will determine the specific drug and doses suitable for him. This puts the pathologist in a more definitive position to determine appropriate therapy than traditional predictions of disease behavior based on morphology of lesions (microscopic patterns) or cultural characteristics of infectious organisms. The lab also monitors the success of gene therapy. After a gene is introduced, the tissue where the gene is inserted (i.e.: Transgenic Monkey or Mouse) must be active and should be monitored for normal expression of the introduced gene and normal structure and function of the gene product. The lab must also monitor the “integrating transfected genes” such that integration allows both normal gene expression and does not produce abnormal function or structure of the patient’s other genes. In summary, molecular pathology is permeating and penetrating, as was immunopathology 20 years ago. “Immunopathology” an example of which is vaccine therapy is nothing new, a German/Austrian vaccine “UKRAIN” is supposed to destroy cancer cells through APOPTOSOS (programmed cell death) without attacking healthy cells. The US now has “GLEEVAC” with identical results. It also has been proven that in breast cancers there are genetically divergent CLONES that account for different microscopic components resulting in different responses to therapy.

Future Direction

As the human genome Project continues to uncover important disease genes (especially those for common disorders) at an ever increasing rate and technologies for high-speed DNA sequencing and multiplex mutation detection continued to improve, we can anticipate diagnostic molecular genetics assuming a far more dominant role in public health and preventive medicine. The advance of DNA “CHIPS” containing thousands of probes may someday allow extensive genotyping and lifetime disease prediction for thousands of disorders from a single drop of blood. Also, a poster on Human Genome Landmarks in the US Department of Energy, identifies a whole gamut of diseases/disorders with the corresponding position of the defective gene! Against these promising advances will have to be weighed ethical issues, especially in the field of gene therapy. Whatever the ultimate balance reached, there’s no doubt that molecular genetics will be the driving force behind an ever greater proportion of evidence based medical practice in the 21st century and virtually every patient whether healthy or ill will feel the impact.

The impact of DNA storage on clinical practice

Evidence based medicine is the gold standard for the 21st century.

What do we do that contributes to the practice of this medicine? What specific examples and daily living indicate that storing DNA is a “Must”?

The event of 9/11 mainly profiling and identifying the deceased was laborious and expensive on federal funds despite which only approximately 2000 persons have been identified. One does not realize the importance of the death certificate without which burial cannot be accomplished until death occurs! Soldiers “missing in action” cannot be declared dead until their bodies are found and identified.

An article in USA Today concerned a “Mystery killer” that involved a young couple; studies failed to give a definitive answer despite autopsy and numerous laboratory tests. Since chances that the suspected disease that clinically presented to be contagious (plague) proved negative on repeated testing. Had DNA been stored, further testing may have led to the diagnosis and cause of death

A TV program about a Serial killer in Juarez Mexico led to more than 200 missing women and “no leads”. Profiling and storing of DNA when these women were newborns would have helped identify the remains that took months to surface. The women after being raped were doused with gasoline and burned! The problem is ongoing.

Although Chandra Levy was missing for a year before the body was found, DNA is stable, and after profiling samples from her remains she can now be laid to rest. Since degraded DNA is difficult to purify, tests on her remains are ongoing to hopefully identify the killer. The FBI in USA Today declared, “there still are no clues to the killer”. Samples are from her remains such as hair, teeth, bone; even old blood can still be stored and tested along with a Suspect’s samples until results are conclusive.

A complex disease such as Parkinson’s disease and the genes whose polymorphic forms can increase any person’s risk but not necessarily cause it is the second most common in a Neuron-degenerative disorder. Parkinson’s disease has neither a Polygenic (multiple genes) or multifactoral (genes and environment) cause. Over the past few years, debate has occurred between Parkinson’s disease having a Genetic component or is just secondary to environmental influences. To evaluate the possible genetic component, open quote gene mapping” is the way to go. The availability of data from the Human Genome Project is opening new possibilities in studying common diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. The multitude of molecular techniques and statistical tools applied to this data now allows us to potentially move medicine from a “reactive” discipline to one that can prevent disease. However, once found, how these “susceptibility genes” will be used in the future remains to be seen.

A newborn (the 3rd child) was diagnosed to have a “Rare protein allergy”. Surgery was successful the baby is now seven years of age and healthy. Two other siblings are healthy. Storing this baby’s DNA would have enabled testing of future siblings for mutations related to this rare congenital predisposition to allergies.

At three months of age a Baby presented with a Bleeding disorder; she was admitted, traded and died at the Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati. The baby’s profile showed a defective ADAMSTS 13 gene. The parents are being tested for this “mutation” and the baby’s blood, buccal smears, and hairs are stored.

Will everyone be gene type early in life to prevent disease that they are at risk for? How will this affect employment/applications for competitive educational opportunities? Wolf farm code genetic genotyping be routine to determine patients with the risk for side effects or variability in efficacy? If the patient refuses typing will third-party payers is still pay for medications and/or treatment? Someday mandatory DNA storage and testing in life and death will enhance the quality of life and improve clinical outcomes because increasing knowledge of genetic variations sheds light on the role of genetic and environmental factors and disease susceptibility, aggression and therapeutic response.

Specialists can now screen eggs for the faulty gene that closes early onset Alzheimer’s disease, enabling women who carry their rare disorder to avoid passing it on to their children.

FDA approved GLEEVEC has been very effective in chronic myelogenous leukemia and rare (stromal) stomach cancers; causes of relapse do so because they have developed mutations that alter GLEEVEC’s target site in the leukemic cells, a Phenomenon well known to infectious disease clinicians. Just as microbes developing drug resistance mutations, so do cancer cells.

Summarizing the future of cancer treatment: in the past, pathologic diagnosis was based on histology. In the future it will be based on molecular profiling of tissue both that the genetic and proteinomic level. In the past, therapy was chosen by disease category. In the future, combination therapy will be aimed in tailored to individual patient profiles or classes of profiles. Select, monitor, and reevaluate.. that’s hope for the future!

Did You Know PC’s Can Be Lemons?


Everyone has heard of a friend that buys a car and from day one has trouble with it. Trips to the dealership do not help. They cannot find anything wrong or make repairs that hold a few weeks or months and it happens again. This makes you afraid your warranty will run out and you will be stuck with the car. These are called lemons because they leave a bitter taste. Many states have what is called a lemon law. The repairs for the same time within a given period gets you a new vehicle. Of course, it still has to be in warranty.

PC’s can be afflicted in the same manner. You continually get the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). You place a call to Tech Support and most likely the call goes to a call center in India. The person you speak with is barely understandable. He has you try several things, usually power on, power off, etc. Then he will tell you you must clean the hard drive and reload Windows whether it be Vista or XP. This is a lot of work and will take more than 1 hour. After that, you must reinstall of the applications you have installed since purchase. Of course, you are off the phone by now. A few days go by and you have the same experience. You probably get a different call taker but it doesn’t matter, they are reading from the same script.

This process is repeated several times. Never does the technician offer to take the PC back. They don’t make money on returns. Finally you run out of patience and escalate. After going through several levels, you finally make such a nuisance of yourself they direct you to return the unit and replace it. Of course, there is some risk you may get another lemon but not likely.

I have been in computers over 50 years and in PC’s since their inception. I retired from IBM and if there is one thing I know how to do, it is to escalate. I simply refuse to reload Windows if I know it is not the problem. I will not talk with someone if I can’t understand them. I ask for someone with a better understanding of the English language. It works. You don’t have to tolerate mediocrity. Many companies have moved their support services off shore or worse, replaced them with email support. When I deal with these people, I threaten to call the Better Business Bureau, the TV consumer advocate or even the Texas State Attorney General. I have called the president of Ford Motor Company as well as the President of General Motors in order to get a vehicle issue resolved. It has never failed me. If you decide to go this route, document dates, times, persons you to whom you have spoken. The best advice I can give you is not to be emotional. That does not help the situation. Be like Joe Friday on Dragnet. “Just the facts”. If you don’t prevail, make sure they know you will vote with your wallet and never buy anything from them again.

Good luck to you.

Active Security Removal Instructions – Remove Active Security From Your PC in 3 Easy Steps


Active Security is a malicious anti virus program which installs itself on your PC and then proceeds to harass you by posting ads, messages and warnings… all in an attempt to get you to buy the software. The actual software has no benefit to your system and it does not clean any viruses from your PC.

How Do I Know If My PC Is Infected With Active Security

Fortunately, this virus is pretty easy to identify. Its main form of communication is a branded program which has been designed to look like a legitimate anti virus tool, meaning that you’ll be able to see what it’s called just from the main screen it has. It also has several pop-up messages and warnings which mention its name as well. This software has likely come from a rogue email or bad Facebook application.

What Damage Does It Do

Active Security doesn’t do much damage to your PC, but is generally seen as a piece of adware, designed solely to annoy you enough to actually buy a license for it. It will typically change some of your browser settings, and will also post many different warnings and ads on your system, making it extremely annoying. The tool does not seem to put any more viruses on your PC, but it does not clean them off either.

How Do I Remove It

To remove this virus, you really just need to do one of two things. The first thing you could do is to remove the problem with an automated spyware removal tool, such as “Spyware Doctor”. These tools cost a small fee and will keep you protected from these problems in the future as well.

You can also remove this manually by following these steps:

  1. Terminate its running processes
  2. Delete its program files & folders
  3. Clean out the registry to make sure it doesn’t come back

The Secret to Removing Spyware Yourself – By a Computer Repair Technician!


If you turn on your computer and it halts before ever getting anywhere close to starting Windows, it is quite indisputable that you just may have some type of spyware crawling around in your computer. Spyware apps can do a good deal of damage, or they might do nothing at all which makes having it in your PC so worrisome. When the spyware has gotten in your computer, there are repairs that you can do yourself to salvage the computer.

So, how do you remove spyware?

Spyware removal software is available on the Internet. This software looks at each data file in your computer and compares it with all known spyware. The ones that it does locate, it creates a listing of, and when the scan is done, you can choose what to do. The most obvious option offered is to delete the files, which is precisely what you should do unless the file listed is a function of a program that you need to use.

Once spyware is inside your computer the best thing that may take place is nothing at all, but the potential for rapid catastrophe is invariably there. So by using the online spyware detecting tools, you will stay on top of this serious issue and save your computer from any harm.

Trust me, as a PC tech I am telling you that it is a great deal less costly for you to run a spyware detecting app to fix up your system than it is to hire a technician.

How to Fix a Slow Hard Drive – Improve Your Computer Performance


Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is one of the two mechanical devices in a computer, computer fan is the second. A slow hard disk will slow down the operation of the computer. Computer has 3 important components that work together: the CPU (brain of the computer), the memory (temporary storage that holds running applications), and the HDD (the permanent storage for all the files).

What majority of people do not realize is that their disk is the bottleneck among these components. The speed of memory is very fast and processors can process billions of instructions per second. A slow drive will slow down your computer because it will not be able to keep up with the request from the processor.

If you have a slow HDD there are things you can do to optimize the disk. Contrary to what you might think, having lots of files on your hard drive doesn’t necessarily slow down your computer. Majority of people with a slow hard drive try to optimize their hard driver by deleting all their programs from within Windows Explorer.

The solution to a hard disk problems is to defragement the hard drive from time to time. You should also make sure that you enable the DMA mode on the disk so it can perform better. You should also disable the indexing of the HDD, because the indexing service slow down your computer.

There are other tools such as checking for disk error and discovery. These tools will optimize your disk and fix your hard drive problems.

Remove the Trojan Virus Using the Best Strategies


The Trojan Virus is by far the the most infamous of all Viruses. This takes the cake. Not only does it have many shapes and forms but it is the most common of viruses and the most difficult to remove. This virus attempts to make the user think that it is a beneficial application in attempts to get the user to either click on it or download it on to his or her system.

Most commonly the Trojan Horse Virus will hide itself within useful software program. Once the virus is on your computer system, it will immediately start infecting files on your computer. THE SCARIEST thing about this Virus is that it will steal personal information from the users computer and relay that information to the creator of the Virus. Once this happens, beware because you will no longer have complete control over your system. A few things to look for are:

1. Computer running slower than usual.

2. Pop ups on your screen when you are online.

3. Computer shuts down by itself.

4. You hard drive is wiped out clean mysteriously.

5. Being directed to completely different websites in browser launch.

It can happen to anyone. When you consider the huge number of viruses and Trojan horses travelling the World Wide Web at any given time, in my opinion I can’t believe it doesn’t happen to everyone. Once you know that your machine is infected with a Trojan Horse or virus, you can call IT support, Disconnect your computer from the Internet, Back up your important files, Install an anti-virus program and scan your machine, Reinstall your operating system and Restore all your files. Most of the time this will work.

Email is usually the most common way The Trojan Virus will infect a computer. The creators of these viruses will use Special Spamming techniques to spread the viruses to the unsuspecting users. To prevent this the best way to avoid infecting your system with The Trojan Virus is to never open an email from a sender you know nothing about.
