Security & Bug Fixes / Re: ClamTK found a trojan
« on: February 19, 2016, 06:38:09 PM »
thank you all for your help. Scott's link proved very useful and it solved the problem. The trojans appeared to do no harm while they were there, I suspect that they couldn't as they seemed to be DOS based.

TY for the quick reply. I did right click on them and pressed delete. ClamTk said it could not delete them.

Security & Bug Fixes / [ SECURITY ] ClamTK found a trojan
« on: February 12, 2016, 07:57:00 AM »
On a routine scan (ClamTK) of the LL I installed as a dual boot on my laptop I got the following result:

Clam will not quarantine it nor delete it (them)

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the suggestions. I did remove the battery but the computer still did not sense any power going in and so it remained dead as a door nail. I don't have a voltmeter but I did connect the power cord and transformer from another HP laptop and it still did not work.

I fear it must be some sort of loose connection inside the power hole in the back of the laptop.

Thanks for the help. I rad the other link and it seems to be a mystery bug that is relatively harmless. So I guess i will have to live with it.

Installing Software / My HP laptop wont charge the battery
« on: July 19, 2015, 12:11:40 AM »
I have checked all connections and have booted both in Win7 and In LL but the problem remains. The laptop does not see the power connection and thinks it's not connected. I have switched power cords but no use.

I went online and in trying the many suggestions ( none worked) the battery went flat and now the laptop does not switch on at all. I plugged the power cord in and the orange light flashe a couple of times but does not stay on. I left it overnight but it did not charge ( it was a desperate hope )

Any ideas?

It's just a blank page and when i try to close it it tells me that it's a program running and do i really want to close it.

Any ideas?

Installing Software / Slowing down...
« on: July 04, 2015, 10:11:23 PM »
The machine I am using has had LL installed the longest. I have noticed that it has slowed down significantly. What sort(s) of things can I look for to speed it up again to its original performance. I update, clean using lite twiks and run the virus scanner regularly.

Users with restricted permissions, change or disable hot-key combos and add a root password for sure. It may not completely stop someone from messing up the system, but should definitely prevent curious people from making changes that affect the system.

I have no idea how to do any of these. Also, I don't want to restrict the use of that computer too much as it is dedicated for their use.

I agree with the comments that they may have done something strange as they have done funny stuff before. But it was not anything that could not be fixed. This problem seemed unsolvable and i have not seen it described any where.

Thanks for your (plural) inputs


Installing Software / My Linux Lite went CRAZY!
« on: July 04, 2015, 02:25:52 AM »
I have Linux Lite 2.4 installed on three machines and it has worked just fine until two days ago. On the oldest machine it booted up until the sign-in page then it started flashing on and off and did not proceed any further. I tried rebooting many times including in 'safe' mode but it did not fix the problem.

On one of the boots up i did notice a brief message at the top of the screen, it was very brief so i am not sure what it actually said but what it looked like is "Pg" endlessly repeated. Also duirng boot up in safe mode the word Casper seemed to occur a lot - I have no idea what it meant (no Ghost Jokes, Please! :) )

Anyway the only thing I could do is re-install off a USB, making sure that the old installation was completely replaced. I did not lose anything important as this machine was mainly used by my grandsons for playing games.

But I would hate it to happen to one of the other two machines, so if anyone can explain what happened I will be grateful.
