This infection is removed by using my favorite spyware removed program, Malwarebytes.
Here is how I removed this infection
- Boot the Pc into SAFE mode
- Login as the Admin user
- Install Malwarebytes if its not already installed ( I used a USB key to transfer the most recent installer to the infected pc) and update the definitions to the current database.
- Run a full scan on the infected pc
- Reboot once the scan is done
- Again login in safe mode as the Admin User
- Run a full scan again to ensure that the infections are gone.
- I then rebooted into normal mode and logged in as a regular user.
- I ran the scan again just to triple check. ( if there is more than one normal user repeat for each user)
- The Pc should now be clean

I bought a PNY 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Micro Swing Attache drive from Staples for $17.99
I havent been using it for long but so far I really like it. It has a push button on the side that make the USB connecter "flip out" from the side of the device. It comes in several different colors ( I picked Blue) so you can keep different drives for different purposed or even one for each family member. Another thing I liked about the drive is that it has a small hole in the end to attach it to a key ring. I seem to always leave mine on my desk but usually always have my keys.
I have installed almost 1GB of portable apps on it so far and have plenty of room for my other needed docs.
For only $17 you cant go wrong with this one. If you have one please let me know your opinion of it by posting a comment.

Klok Personal Time Tracking Software Its been a bit over due but if you are an individual that would like to use Klok to track your own time contact us today. No previous experience using earlier versions of Klok is necessary. We are currently seeking users on Windows platforms, but will be expanding to include Mac and Linux users soon. If you are interested please see the main Klok site at http://klok.mcgraphix.com
KlokWorkKlokWork is an underlying pluggable architecture that allows Klok to talk to server-based systems. This could be an external system such as FreshBooks or GetHarvest or an internal home-grown time tracking system. We are currently looking for small organizations or teams (6 or fewer users) to test this functionality. In this first round of testing, Klok will connect to our own deployed server environment that will allow for group based reporting. So you do not need to host your own server or have existing accounts with any third-party vendor. Later rounds of testing will include integration other providers.

On Windows Vista when your pc starts Windows Live Messenger starts as well. Many of my clients do not like the fact that they have to close the window manually even though its really only one click to close the program.
In order to prevent Windows Live Messenger from running on login here is what I did.
Create a dummy(or an actual account if you use the software) and then login
to Live Messenger.
Under the menu choose Options. In that window you can disable the checkbox
that starts Windows Live Messenger at startup.
You can also unstall the software completly but if you ever plan to use it you would then have to reinstall it again. I have also not found any easy way to uninstall if from Vista anyway. Please post a comment if you have easily removed it from Vista.
This may not be the only way to fix this problem but It Fixed It for me.

The first app I would like to mention that I use regularly is VNC (Virtual Network Computing)
This is available in many versions online so make sure you get the correct version for your phone. I installed this to the phones many menory rather that to a SD or other memory card as I would like it to be available even if the card is not installed in the phone.
This app allows me to connect to any server or pc that is running the VNC server software (also a free version availalbe from realvnc.com). I will not go into how to set the server side software up in this article.
I have used this in my own home to connect to all of my pcs in my house using my wireless network. Once connected to a wireless network I just need to enter the ip address and port that the vncserver software is running on for the pc I would like to connect to.
After I enter the password I can then see the desktop of the pc I connected to. This is similar to a PCAnywhere connection but much smaller screen size for a cell phone.
I have also used this in some of my business clients offices that have wireless network and are running the VNC software on their servers.
Granted if there was a pc available to make a remote connection with I would most likely choose that method. But for anyone that needs to administer remote machines in a pinch I highly recommend using VNC on your cell phone

I have a Dell Studio 1737 laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit edition that generally is a great laptop, but I have been seeing some performance issues. For no apparent reason and at random intervals the cpu would go to 30-45% utilized and hover there even if the laptop was idle. I have attempted all of my usual tools to try to narrow it down to find what the issue is. ( turning of services, disable devices, update drivers, etc...) The odd thing is if I close the laptop screen and then re-open it after a minute or so the CPU would calm down for a while.
All seem to get me know where. I also used a program called Process Explorer (by Sysinternals) to try and track it down. Process explorer showed that the cpu was hung on Hardware interupts.
This is was lead me down the bad driver route. As I have wasted too much time on this I have decided to just reset the laptop to the factory condition and reinstall my apps.
I have listed the steps to recover the pc back to the factory state in case anyone else has this problem.
- Restart the computer.
- When the computer restarts, press F8 until you see the Advanced Boot Options menu.
- Select "Repair Your Computer" and then press Enter.
- Choose the language and then click Next.
- Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK. I choose my regular user name and entered my password
- Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
- In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
- Select Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box.
- Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
- When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer. My laptop took about 30 minutes to run the restore
Hope this helps.

I have a client that just bought a new HP Pavilion Laptop with Windows Vista installed. When attempting to connect to an office wireless network ( WEP encrypted network), the laptop would find the wireless network but would never make a successful connection.
In the Network and Sharing Center showed a Red X on the internet side of the "network map". The wireless network would always be detected as a Public Network instead of a Private Network. Even it I manually set it to Private it would come back as Public on the next reboot.
This laptop had Norton Internet Security Suite pre-installed. I found that for whatever reason the wireless network I needed to connect to had its security settings in correct. To allow the laptop to connect to the office network I had to open up Norton Internet Security and click on Settings next to the Internet Heading. This should bring up the settings window that should include a link to the "Smart Firewall". Under Smart Firewall there is a configure link for Trust Control.
On the left hand side there should be a drop down list that should show you the wireless network you are connected to. If you select that item and then click the Edit link an Edit Network Details window should appear. On that screen there should be another Edit link next to Trust Level that will allow you to change the Trust Level for that network. I set it to Shared (or Trusted) to allow the network traffic to pass to the laptop. Once I changed the setting and rebooted the HP Pavilion was then able to connect to the office wireless network.
This is just another example of why I prefer to not use Norton products in favor of other firewall products such as Zone Alarm.
I hope this helps someone else.

The program is another freeware program that gives you a good insight into what is starting on your computer and how it starts.
The UI is split into sections with a windows explorer like tree on the left and a list of items on the right hand side.
There are several tabs at the top to switch between views for Startup Items, Processes and Services.
On the Startup tab clicking on any item filters the list on the right hand side accordingly. The list on the right has several columns of data available for each item. To disable any items you can simply uncheck its corresponding check box.
On the process tab is a list of all the processes that are currently running on your system. This is similar to the Windows Task Manager Process tab but Starter has added a very handy right click menu option to search the internet for info on the item selected.
On the Services tab is a list of the services (running and not running) on your pc. This is similar to the Windows Services Applet. It allows you to start, stop, pause, restart etc... the services.
The software has an installable version as well as a stand alone version that does not keep any files on your pc (possibly good for transporting the program by USB key)
In conclusion I found this to be a very user friendly, intuitive program that combined widnows tasks as well as added some additional functionality. I will defiantly be adding this one to my list of support programs.

To connect to the iSCSI target from Windows Vista first open up the control panel and double click on the iSCSI Initiator Icon.
Once the applet starts click on the Discovery Tab. And ADD a target portal. Use the ip address of the iSCSI target server you created from my last article. I left the default port.
I then selected the Targets tab and hit the refresh button. My iSCSI disk that I set up on the Target server now appeared in the list.
To connect to it you will need to enter the user name and password that you used in the creation of the target (from my last article). Highlight the target from the list and click on the Logon button. You will then see the following popup box.
If you would like this connection to come up automatically when the system reboots select the checkbox for that option. Click on the Advanced button to bring up some additional options.
Check the CHAP login information check box and enter the user name and password you created the iSCSI target with. If all goes well you should see the Status column go from Inactive to Connected. Once this is connected you should see a new drive in the Windows Disk Managament applet that you can then format as needed.
Note that this was used for purely a test environment and should not be used in a production setting without some serious security and performance changes.
On with the HOWTO:...
Start out with a Centos 5.3 server. I will not go into how to set this up but I am willing to bet if you are looking at how to set up iscsi then you already know how to set up a Centos server.
From a command line type
This will make sure the system is up to date.
Then Download iscsitarget-0.4.17.tar.gz from SourceForge
I put the above file in /usr/src/iscsitarget If that folder does not exist you will need to create it.
Then change to that directory
Now you will have to enter the following commands to extract the files and install iscsitarget.
tar xvf iscsitarget-0.4.17.tar.gz
Once installed I created a folder to house my test disk files
Then create an empty file for your iscsi target file
dd if=/dev/zero of=/data/iscsidisks/LUN0 bs=1M count=512
(The above command will create a 512 MB file. Adjust accordingly.)
Now onto the config file for iscsitarget
Open up the /etc/ietd.conf file
I added the below options but there are many others as well. See the man file for more help.
IncomingUser scott 123456789012
OutgoingUser scott 123456789012
Lun 0 Path=/data/iscsidisks/LUN0,Type=fileio
You may need to adjust the allow and deny files. For my testing I opened it up to allow all connection but you can adjust accordingly
Open up the /etc/initiators.allow file. I added
to the file.
Now you can then restart the iscsi-target service
At this point you should now have a working iscsi target that you can connect to from an iscsi initiator. I will post a separate article on how to connect to this target.

No matter how I chmod the files on the mounted share I could not get the permissions to stick. I came accross a solution online and figured I would post it here.
The solution was to mount the USB drive with the following command line.
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdata -o users,umask=000
This allowed all of my users access to the device. Normally I would not want this but in this case I just have the space for extra backups and scratch space.
Hope this helps someone else.

Cannot access the kernel driver
The solution I found was to open up the control panel and go to "Programs and Features" applet. I selected the "Sun Virtual Box" item from the list and selected the repair option. This essentially went through the install of the software again and repaired any missing or damaged files.
How it got damaged in the first place I do not know but the above solution fixed it for me. I was then able to open up my VMs as usual again.

For those that would also like to know here is how I did it.
You can either connect to the machine remotely over an ssh program like putty or you can do this directly from the terminal.
Open up a command prompt for the user that you have vnc server running as.
You will then be prompted to enter a new password twice. Choose your new vnc server password and then restart the vncserver service using the following command.
service vncserver restart
The above commands work when run as the root user on Centos but should work similarly on most other variation of Linux.
Hope this helps.

The item I tested was The Wireless Network Meter V3.0. See the screen shot below.
I have this gadget at the top of my list. It shows me which wireless network I am connected to as well as other items like my ip address, the public ip address I am connected to the internet with, a way to lookup my ip location geographically, and wireless signal strength. It also has some nice statistics on my network speed both up and down. It even shows a real time graph of network traffic.
It is very easy to install. Just download the single zip file, extract and double click the file to install. You can then go to the options screen and select the NIC that you would like it to monitor.
I find that I look at this gadget all the time. It has a nice UI that goes well with my other Windows Gadgets. I highly recommend this gadget to any Microsoft Windows Vista user using the sidebar that like to keep tabs on network info.

After setting up Outlook the user then tried to send email to friends on his contact list. The user used to be able to type a few letters and the rest of the email address would appear in a list. This is what is called Outlook Autofill.
When a new user profile is created the outlook autofill cache file is empty. In the case of only a few contacts it may not be a big problem however this user had over 300 contacts that were already in the previous cache file.
Long story short I needed to copy the old cache file to the new profile.
On Windows XP the file is located at:
c:\documents and settings\username\application data\microsoft\outlook\Outlook.nk2
You must close Outlook if it is running and then copy the file from the old profile to the new profiles folder.
After Outlook is restarted the autofill cache should have all of the previously entered email addresses available in the drop down list.
Hope this helps somebody else.

I had never used Skype in an office environment like this but I thought it was a good idea. I picked up 3 Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 web cams for about $50 each. I then created a free Skype account for each of the users in the office and added each use to all of the others contact list.
The cams have a built in microphone and a small stand to sit on top of a monitor or clip on to the top of a flat panel screen. The resolution on this model is 640 x 480 and it comes with a 1.3 MP camera. The next model up (VX-6000) does have a 5MP camera and is capable of 1.3MP video resolution.
The Skype software is relatively easy for the users to understand. If you get a call you are prompted with a Answer or Answer with video button. To make is call is also very easy you select the user you want to call from your contact list and click call or call with video.
Granted the cameras are not hi-res at all but for a basic video conference in a small office you cant beat the price.
So far they are working ok but you may have to tweak the video setting to get the best picture.

I had to rebuild a clients PC and was attempting to re-install XP Pro. The install started fine but would error out with a message about "XP Pro installation cannot copy files from installation disk".
I restarted the setup several times and the error would come up with a different file each time.
After scratching my head I decided to eliminate things one at a time. I tried a different Cd...same error. I tried installing a different CD ROM drive...same error. I then tried different cables to connect to the CD ROM drive...again same error.
What fixed this for me was to remove all the RAM sticks and replace them one at a time. After process of elimination it turned out it was a bad RAM module. Once I removed the bad RAM the PC installed as usual.
Hope this helps

First create a file called ftpget.bat and copy the following lines into the file
ftp -s:get.txtNext create a second file called get.txt. The name doesnt matter just make sure the name is the same name as the file in the above command.
Copy the following (change as needed) into the get.txt file
open servername.domain.comYou obvoiusly need to adjust the servername.domain.com to point to an actual ftp server as well as adjust the username and password items.
***Please note that this really is not secure in any way as FTP is not secure to begin with but also the ftp username and password are stored in the text file.
You can then schedule the ftpget.bat file in windows scheduler or any other for that matter. Just make sure both files are in the same folder.

I used this to allow my PC (an older HP Media center PC) to sync my Outlook calendar and contacts to my cell phone. The device was relatively easy to set up. It came with a Cd with the software needed to get the device recognized in Windows.
