MS/NOKIA VS ANDROID. Does Ms/Nokia made mistake in the past for which they paid.

Question: MS/NOKIA VS ANDROID. Does Ms/Nokia made mistake in the past for which they paid.

Windows and android started a new beginning in 2011
Windows phone 7x
Android 2.3
So in that beginning time why apps developer went to develop apps for android not for Windows phone?
. . . . . . . .
Because If in the beginning itself developer would have decided to go with windows phone instead of android.
Than today's image of widows would be different.
. . . . . . . .
Than why developer went with android not with windows to develop huge n classy apps .
Is there any term n condition by MS/Nokia for app development which Google didn't forced on apps designers?
Does MS/nokia harmed itself by putting their T&C which Google left n pulled the developers attention to do job freely.??
Hope you'll understand what exactly I wanna ask?

Preferred Solution: MS/NOKIA VS ANDROID. Does Ms/Nokia made mistake in the past for which they paid.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: MS/NOKIA VS ANDROID. Does Ms/Nokia made mistake in the past for which they paid.

What was it about Android that started with 2.3 that marks it as a "new beginning"? Google Play started way back in 2008, they had a full 3 years worth of commerce and sharing the market with Apple before Windows Phone 7 came along.

Yes it can be done pretty simple... Now I did it on a "gophone" from walmart (at&t) I had the sim card from my sons destroyed Iphone 5c
I got the Nokia lumina 640 (now microsoft) phone
before I powered it up I removed the sim card from the 640 it is Larger than the sim card from the Iphone but it's all in the plastic around the actual simcard
to make my sim card "larger" i took the sim card from the 640 and traced around it with a razor ex-acto knife onto.... you know the clear plastic containers from the grocery store that the blue berries / cherry tomatoes come in... thin clear plastic I cut it to the exact size of the 640sim card
and made special note of exactly where the contacts lined up on it compared to my smaller iphone sim card and with one small spot of super glue glued the back of my iphone card to the clear plastic i had cut out... slid it in the phone (tight fit) powered up the phone... it went into set up mode and works perfect with my regular at&t service this was for my 12yo who had been through 4 screens on his Iphone and numerous batteries... and he LOVES this phone it's windows based 8.1 but he updated to windows 10 already... he is a techie and is really impressed with this phone way better than his iphone5c he says... and for $79 i'm good to go... he says I should get them to replace the other 3 iphones in the house

Answer:YES you can use a Nokia Lumia 640 GoPhone on your paid AT&T account.

You can also buy a SIM adapter on amazon for a couple bucks..

Answer:Is Nokia Lumia 930 made in Vietnam International Version?

I believe every variant of 930 rolls out of Vietnam.
Any WiFi is an International Standard and would only vary by which standards it can use. All Lumia 930 variants have a very modern and current WiFi capability: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, DLNA.

I just answered something similar on another thread. You can go through this.
You can try to soft reset first.
Volume down and power button until the phone vibrates. Phone will restart if it works.
Otherwise -
This is from the support site -
The problem you are experiencing may be caused by a software problem on your phone. You will need to perform a factory reset to try and resolve the problem.
Please note: All information on your phone will be deleted and anything that has not been backed up will be lost during this process. If you cannot access your phone's menu, unfortunately you will not be able to back-up any data.
Make sure your phone is powered off.
Press and hold the 'volume down' button.
Press the 'power' button until the phone vibrates, then release the 'power' button.
Keep the 'volume down' button held until you see an '!' on the screen, then release the 'volume down' button.
When the '!' appears, press the following buttons in order:
'volume up'
'volume down'
'volume down'
You should see rotating gears on your screen for around 5 minutes.
Your display will then turn blank for 30 seconds while your phone restarts.
It will take several minutes for your phone to restart. Once your phone has restarted you will need to follow the on-screen instructions and complete the initial set-up process on your phone.

Hi there,

Prior usage i've to install the software on the MMC-Card of the mobile Phone via Nokia PC Suite (for Nokia 6600).

For BT i'm using the Toshiba SD Card 2 within Portege.

With the Toshiba Bluetooth Manager (3.20.01) i can discover and establish a serial connection via BT without problems.

When starting the Nokia PC Suite (that automatically "see's" the new BT Port ...) the connection failes.

Any idea ? Thanks ...

Answer:Portege R100 + BT SD Card 2 + Nokia 6600 with Nokia PC Suite ? NO CONNECT !


Unfortunately I can not give you a proper answer. The fact is that the Bluetooth works properly and notebook can communicate with the unit. Why the connection fails after starting Nokia PC suite is not easy to say.

In my opinion you should try to contact Nokia support. They have more experience with own software products and it is probably tested by Nokia. If you have a solution please let us know.

Good luck!

Hi,I bought this Nokia Lumia 820 in Jan,2013 from Chennai,India.After 6 months I faced some issues like low battery life and also a line at the center of the screen.So I went to Nokia Care, Taramani, Chennai-India,they told me that they will send it to their head office and may take a week time.I agreed and went back on the desired date .Then they told that Company has decided to give me a new Lumia 820 instead of my old Lumia 820 as they were not able to get the accurate solution.But the warranty will be carry forward.I agreed and came back home.From then onwards, I didn't faced any issues.Now after 2 years,I broke my LCD of same Lumia 820 accidentally in San Francisco,CA-USA.I went to one of the repair center here and the first question he asked me was "Did anybody tried to open it?".I replied no after in Chennai,India and that too was new.To my shock he said "It's a fake copy ...the screws were stripped."They cheated and gave me used phone instead of my new phone.
Is this the way they are cheating customers.

I use the calendar app to organise my family events; but the "older" than a month appointments and events has disappeared. anyone please help???

Answer:Why have my past calendar entries disappeared on my Nokia Lumia 520?

If you're using, you need to go to switch to Calendar. Go to settings (cog in top right), then click Options, scroll down until you see the section that says "Select when to delete your completed tasks", set this to Never.
This is normally defaulted to a month. Sadly any event already past will be gone.
You can't set this via the phone (for accounts) only the website.

I have had this phone for almost two years now and after doing a factory reset a couple months ago I haven't been able to receive updates. I've gone into settings and manually checked for them multiple times, and the phone is set to automatically download when one becomes available- but it hasn't in a while. It's like the updates aren't reaching my phone. Also, extras +info won't update. I have turned everything off and back on, unblocked cookies on internet explorer, but every time it finishes the install it says there was an error. It doesn't give me an error code, just simply says if the download is an app to uninstall and reinstall it. Since extras and info isn't an app, there is nothing I can do.
My carrier is T-Mobile, and they no longer carry the Amber update. So, I'm thinking that's why I can't get past this old OS version. I've heard I can get the update through Nokia or Zune, but I'm kind of at a dead end as to HOW to do that. Any help would be appreciated.

I've read some similar (but not identical issues) on the forum. Hopefully someone can assist.
My phone battery went dead while using GMAPS which ate up the battery very quickly.
Been trying to charge it for hours, but all I get is a flashing WINDOWS symbol at the bottom of the phone, then the NOKIA logo appears about every 30 seconds, but then nothing else happens.
Tried pressing the POWER OFF and VOLUME BUTTON simultaneously for extended periods, but no joy.
I have too much stuff on the phone to do a hard reset, and I'm on the road, so kind of in need in a quick and easy solution that doesn't affect my data (if one exists).

Answer:Windows 10 Nokia Lumia 930 - NOKIA logo flashes up, but does not boot

Maybe the device is on a reboot loop somehow, when you try to charge it keeps on trying to reboot but fails because the battery is out of enough power to finish the boot.
Leave the device connected to the charger for a while as the device is deeply discharged then try the soft reset combo power off and volume button.

Hi guys, greetings from Nairobi. I've had my Nokia Lumia 620 for a little over 6 months now. I was on 8.1 through the developer's preview. So I was just sitting there, hadn't used my phone for around 15 minutes. When I checked the phone, it was stuck on the Nokia screen. I assumed that it was restarting so I left it for a couple more minutes. It's been on the screen for around 5 hours. I have tried the soft and hard reset several times but still nothing works. I'm still stuck on the Nokia screen and the device is not detected when I plug it on the laptop through the USB cable. Seen a couple of videos on using Navifirm but can't do much because the device isn't being detected. Hoping I won't have to take it to the care center. Anything else I can try? Looking forward to your responses. Much thanks.
By hard resetting I followed the following steps:
Turn off the Lumia,
Pressed and held the Power Button, did not release until the phone vibrates.
Pressed and held the Volume Down Button, did not release until the LCD showed the exclamation mark.
Pressed Volume Up Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released
Pressed Power Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released.
The soft reset was simply power button and volume down button.
I should also point out that the USB cable I'm using isn't the one that I got the phone with :) lost that one.
Thanks guys.:)

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 620 has been stuck on the Nokia startup screen for 5 hours now.

Try a different cable and use Nokia Care Suite to reset the phone, you will lose everything on the phone but it should reset it to factory settings. You will then probably need to get it updated via Developer preview again...good luck.

I"ve all updated drivers and also update my Windows.
But, I cannot solve the problem
Please, check my files and provide me useful support and I"m waiting for Your response.

Answer:BSOD while Flashing Nokia Phone Using Nokia Suite

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions Please use Option 1 as it provides Event Viewer logs. Make sure that you let the app run for at least 15 minutes (or until the app itself says that it's done).

The first step here is to check in Device Manager for the xHCI controller. If you find that it has errors, right click on it and select "Uninstall". If presented with a check box to delete the driver software, please check it. Then click on the "OK" box to remove it.
Reboot and see if the xHCI device still has problems. If not, wait to see if the system BSOD's. Finally, let us know what happens.

Update the drivers for your HSPADataCard USB Modem/Serial Device to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version. Your HSPADataCardusbnmea.sys driver dates from 2011 and is likely not compatible w/Win8.1

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).

Dear Gurus, First, I apologize if there is a mobile phone forum elsewhere
I seem to have got into a chicken and egg situation.

Using Nokia PC suite for file transfer from PC to Nokia 7520 supernova, my problem is the bluetooth works but the USB cable CA-126, doesn't!

Nokia PC suite can communicate with my nokia 7510 supernova using bluetooth which is painfully slow.

Nokia PC suite doesn't seem to find the mobile when I use the CA-126 cable for a USB connection.

Suspecting something wrong with USB I checked the XP USB hardware and got a list of 4;
generic USB CF reader USB device
generic USB MS reader USB device
generic USB SD reader USB device
generic USB SM reader USB device

According to XP the above are all working correctly.

I did note that when PC suite was installing it mentioned USB2. Using freshdevices, it lists
as part of the installed drivers
system32\drivers\usbport.sys description usb 1.1 and 2.0 driver

I tried to run 'driver whiz'. it sticks when it is listing and comes to generic sm usb reader.

Which leaves me where I started.

My only consolation, printer, scanner, mouse, webcam, all with usb connections work perfectly.

Help if possible to get me cable connected 7520 to PC

Bye and thanks

Answer:Microsoft and Nokia deal....did MS licence any of the Nokia apps?

This is a really interesting question. I'm not sure whether MS bought out Nokia's apps to be honest. I know the main crux of the deal is hardware related but I'm sure its been discussed how Nokia's exclusivity on their apps will most likely be dissolved, which can't be a bad things for the platform, as Nokia's apps really do stand out among the crowd. No matter if it's Nokia that's developing them or if it's MS developing them, as long as they do keep getting updated I think we're in a good position.

Was connecting & running fine while phione was Windows 8.
Immediately after the Windows 8.1 upgrade this changed.
Now every time I start the car the phone "connects" multiple times (used to do so just once).
So it goes "Phone Connected", followed by "Player Connected" about 2/3/4/5 times at the start of every journey.
PS. RThe phone stils works properly on the kit etc... - its just the nusiance of listening to it connect (& disrupting radio/music eytc... while doing so).
Tried un-pairing & re-pairing the devices etc... - no joy.
Any ideas?

Recently installed Windows 7 build 7600.
After installing i updated the system using windows update by connecting to the internet via my nokia n70 usb modem by installing the latest nokia pc suite,
during the update it was working fine, but after i restarted the system and again tried to connect to net via same, the nokia one touch access kept on showing opening port and then nothing is happening.
I went to the network adapter setting and clicked on nokia n70 usb modem(OTA)
It shows error 711 that remote access connection manager(RACM) failed to start in time.
Then checked my services there i found that the dependencies of RACM ie secure socket tunneling protocol is not running. I tried to start the service but was showing that sstp starts when it is used by some specific program or else then it automatically turns off.

The downloading and installation works perfectly but then it immediately says that it's not recognizing my Nokia Lumia Phone! They say elsewhere that there is a special app for the Lumia but this app is limited to music, pictures, videos, podcasts and
ringtones. So contacts, the most important for a Phone, is not even included. There are surely other makes where this is possible and where you can easily see and manage all contacts. On which cellphones this Nokia Suite is really working then?

When my phone begins to boot up, it crashes a couple seconds after the nokia logo pops up. Also, I don't think that the software is telling the hardware to charge the battery correctly because it has been charging for several hours but when detached from a charger, it immediately dies.
When on the charger, I tried a soft reset by holding the power button and volume down keys for 10-15 seconds which was ineffective I also tried a hard reset by holding the power button until the nokia screen appears, then holding the volume down button for the exclamation mark to appear but it shuts down before this happens.
Other notes: It shows the flashing icon light when on the charger and at times tries to boot up but when at the nokia screen shuts down.

Answer:Why is my nokia lumia 925 crashing at the nokia screen?

Hi, I had a similar problem. First I thought it was the battery, until I eventually figured out that it was the motherboard. Changing it won't be easy, so take it to a shop

Hello, I bought a Nokia Lumia 520 a while back (About two years ago or something i'm not too sure) It was perfectly fine until all of the sudden I couldn't hear anything apart from Ringtones (Couldn't listen to songs, couldn't hear people when calling etc) after messing around with the phone it turned out to be the earbud jack (can't remember the correct word at the moment) anyhow, I fixed it by basically shoving a tooth pick in it. So i'm like okay fine. But recently the phone got stuck in Airplane mode, I tried literally everything apart from going to the store to get it fixed because my warranty ran out and i'm not going to pay for this piece of crap. So, today I tried the "Windows Phone Recovery Tool", I let it do its thing while I take a shower but when I came back it was stuck on the red Nokia title screen. Unplugged the battery, re-connected it with my PC, pressed the Volume down button etc. Nothing works! And when it's plugged into the PC, the Windows Recovery Tool says "Acces is Denied. Verify Credentials"
So yeah. I am furious. I have never, ever had so many problem with a phone before..
Here are some screenshots:

Answer:Can I get some help with my Nokia Lumia 520 (Red Nokia Title Screen)(8.1)?

1. Calm down ( you gotta have patience while working with gadgets )
2. You shouldn't shove things other than the hp jack into the hp port.
3. Airplane mode ? (tried going to settings and trying to disable it or remove the sim and put it back in / restart ?? )
4. That "Red Nokia Tile Screen" you saw was the firmware download screen.
5. One does not simply don't pull out a phone while its undergoing firmware loading.
6. Try with Windows Phone Recovery Tool again. (This time wait ... and have patience.)
7. The only and last solution is Lumia Software Recovery Tool. Be patient !

i cant access to my nokia account to my phone nokia n8

Answer:Why can't I access my Nokia account to my phone Nokia N8?

Nokia has been going through some changes lately. They are uncoupling things that were synced between hardware and software.
The support pages for N8 are now under the Microsoft umbrella as part of the buy up of Nokia hardware divisions. I'd start there: Nokia N8-00 - Support, Updates, Downloads and User Guides, Troubleshooting - Microsoft - UK
At a guess... Your Nokia Account log in is no longer valid on that phone because of the transition. Have you tried logging into your Nokia Account via PC browser? Have you tried the Ovi Store on PC?
You could try establishing a Microsoft Account (or use an existing one) and try to sync that on the phone...
My Nokia Account log in is still good, but I've long had it linked to a Microsoft Account. I also see Microsoft has taken ownership of Ovi...

It's incredibly long( you need to take 4 separate pictures), yet the width is only 1/10th of the overall length!
When compared to competitor panaromas, its like three separate pictures, but the actual width is much thicker.
I'm trying to have high resolution pics uploaded on fb, and its such a bother trying to upload these panorama shots that just end up looking tiny if I follow this rule by facebook:
I have to manually edit ALL nokia pictures to 2048 for the largest single dimension on gimp before uploading on facebook.. But as soon as I do that(edit on gimp) for the length of a 9622X1094 panoramic picture, the width ends up even tinier, and it doesn't look great.. what would I do in this situation? This is my only real issue with the app.

Use Photosynth instead.

Answer:Nokia mixRadio account of nokia 200

You can have a music subscription which is linked to your account activated on only one phone at a time.
If you have a voucher from your Nokia 200, you can use that voucher code to renew the subscription on your Lumia 720.
If you didn't get a voucher code, and you just have to sign in on your Nokia 200 to activate the subscription, then you can't use it on your Lumia 720.
If you want, you sign out of mix radio on your 720, and then sign in on you Nokia 200 using the same username as you did on the Lumia.

Nokia 730 is finally available in India and it looks to be the best bet in the mid range segment. My Nokia Lumia 720 just broke (the display gave up finally after having a broken screen for over months). The only reason for me to not go away from Nokia is the Mix Radio and the unlimited downloads with subscriptions.

Because many people have suggested that my prejudice against Maemo isn't backed by facts, I would like to ask people who are more intimate with Maemo to share what makes Maemo better than Android based on core functionality, development support, supported languages, interoperability between apps, the ability to change any element of the interface and the shell with another (like change the keyboard, the contact app, the camera app), syncing and cloud-computing etc.
I found the Nokia N900 Unlocked Maemo only $479, I'm open to suggestions why I should like Maemo. Then i may get one.

Answer:Nokia N900: Maemo vs. Android - what makes Maemo a winner?

Well from what i have researched on Maemo, it is more of a full on linux kernel then Android. Although a big supporter of Android myself, Maemo looks to be a truely more linux based platform especially if they fully port the tablet edition to the N900. The ability to easily port an linux application makes this a much better suited platform then Android simply because the amount of linux programs is vast. Granted since space is limited on the N900 this could be seen as a hinderance since most linux programs can eat huge amounts of memory like Open Office. And as far as i can tell this has the most true browser running off of mozilla with flash support(which i could care less about). I think the biggest difference is who is behind each OS. Nokia and a vast open source community are behind Maemo while Google and its community stand behind Android. From a preformance and customability stand point Maemo is looking like the better Smart Phone since it is basically Linux powering it, while Android is a more mass marketed smart phone with bits of linux running it. It might be a hard sell for me to stick with android when it comes time to upgrade especially if the N900 runs as good as they are saying it will.

Answer:Ms deactivate virus are made for getting paid twice. No help

It's pointless trying to talk to Microsoft as XP is an old system as far as they are concerned.As long as you haven't formatted the harddrive your files are still there so your first task is to recover those. You need an external drive big enough to hold your data then get a Linux disk - (Ubuntu for example, which can be downloaded as an iso, created using Nero or any other burning tool, and then run it as a Live disk (ie do not install it) ). This will give you access to the file system on your computer and you can then copy your data onto the external harddrive.Once you have done this your best option is to just reinstall XP as long as you have the activation key from the side/base of your system."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

I am not sure which forum this goes to, so I am going to try am I infected. About two weeks ago I deleted HJT , but only the icon on the desktop. I was looking in the all programs today and there it was so I thought I would run it. It said it was already running. It doesn't come up when I try to open it. It just says that it is already running. I thought if this thing has been running for two weeks then I'll just delete it from the control panel default programs. When I tried this it said that HJT is already running. What should I do to stop it from running, or delete it or see it or something. Can someone help. Never had this problem before.

Answer:Made mistake-need help please

Did you install it in the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis folder (the default installation location)?Open Task Manager and confirm that HijackThis.exe is running under the "Processes" tab. If it is, then kill the process (right-click on it and choose End Process) to shut it down before trying to use Add/Remove Programs.

Hey guys I think I made a pretty dumb move and was wondering if maybe there is a way out of it. I was running windows 7 as my primary OS and shrank the volume and created another 50gb partition to run Windows XP Dark edition. I installed it to the correct partition, but made it NTFS. Now on my C: drive, I have 2 NTFS partitions and I can only boot to XP. I can access all of my files I had used in windows 7, but it is not recognized when attempting to choose an OS to boot from in BIOS. Clearly, having two NTFS partitions on 1 drive is a no-no. Is there anyway to repair this without a clean install of windows 7? Also, I'm using a 150gb HD, the partition with Windows 7 is 100gb.

Answer:Think I made a mistake, can anyone help?

There is no problem having 2 NTFS partitions on a drive. What happened is that the XP boot loader replaced 7's.

First, mark the Windows 7 partition as active: Partition - Mark as Active

Then run a startup repair for Windows 7.

Then you will be able to boot into Windows 7. The next step is adding XP to the boot loader. Download EasyBCD 2.0, and add XP. You will need to register in order to download, but it is free.

Since installing WMP 11, I cannot play a lot of streaming video. WMP will open and it says "Connecting to Media" and just sits there. In Add/Remove programs, of course, it just wants to rollback to previous version. When I installed v11, I must have uninstalled the version I had on the computer.

I have downloaded and installed v11 over itself and that didn't help. Searching the net, everything I've found pretty much says it can't be uninstalled-that it's become an integral part of XP.

If this is true, how do I make the video stream open in a different player when as far as I know, there's no way to get the file type of streaming video?

Thanks for any help. JohnO.

Sorry first post so im not really sure where this should go. Basically what has happened is...

I was installing a new graphics card onto my PC, the PC had intergrated graphics on it, and when i had put in the new card and installed all the neccesary drivers it said that my drivers werent compatible with the VGA. I checked in the manual for my motherboard and it said whn installing a new card you have to change one of the BIOS settings.. and i, being the silly person i am changed the wrong thing. I changed something from VGA to PCI-E i cant remeber which setting it was though.

The result is... when i turn on my PC my screen no longer works and after a while the PC begins to make louder whirring noises. With the screen not working i cant change whatever i did to the BIOS. Please help!

Thank you

Answer:Help! Made a big mistake!

Using the jumper on the motherboard, reset the BIOS parameters to factory defaults, then reboot and fix it.

Question: Made a Big Mistake

Hello All!!!

I hope you all are smarter then me. I was having issues in IE and through AOL on my XP pc lately. I could not access and secure web sites (banks, Email, etc...) I tried adjusting all of the different settings recommended by XP. Also, I tried reinstalling IE. None of this worked. So I was thinking of ditching IE for FIREFOX anyway. So I downloaded and installed FIREFOX. Now my computer cannot get online at all. I get the DNSerror page. I uninstalled FIREFOX and put IE back on. However I still get the DNSerror page.



Answer:Made a Big Mistake

Are you using a firewall and if so, which one?

My PC got a trojan a few days ago. I couldn't use internet connections(cable), my Task Manager couldn't be opened, if I open browser(I use Internet Explorer)it always tries to go to the URL.And also when I shut down my computer, it always appear 'Win Min error'
And then I connect to the internet with dial-up modem, and found this web site!I've looked some threads which have the same problem with me(mostly same), so i did the entire resolution like download Hijack This, CleanUp, Killbot, AVG, ewido.
When I used Hijack This, the log was mostly same with Pedronian's (I saw Pedronian's thread that time), but the characters which start with "O4 - HKCU\..\Run:" were different, inspite in my log had same weird .exe format. So, I decided to check that things and deleted it. Honestly, I didn't understand what I'd been doing!I just checked somes that I thought it was weird, and abnormal..
And the result is, is gone!(after I run the Hijack This 3 times) but I still get a problem.
When Windows Startup, Command Prompt always appears c:\windows\system32\VX7DD0~1.exe
And then I used Killboot.exe to delete this things. But, it appears again and again!
Also, My Task Manager is still disabled
What should I do then??
I think I've made a mistake when I used Hijack This at the first time, so this trojan has ... Read more
