What kind of memory do i have in my computer / pc?


If you are looking to upgrade the memory in your computer, you are probably wondering what type of memory is already installed, and what you need to buy for an upgrade...

Here’s an option for detecting the type/size of memory already installed in your system without having to open your computer. This Tool is also helpful so you can easily check other specification on your system.

Download "System Information for Windows Tool" HERE... or visit their site.

This useful free application/tool should be a standard in any geek’s toolkit. It comes bundled as a single file, no installation required.

Once you open it up, navigate to Hardware and then Memory on the left-side panel, you’ll see what type of memory is already installed in your computer.

See pic below, looks like my DESKTOP system can support up to 4GB of memory and I got a total of 1.5GB memory already installed. I have two memory module... on the first slot, I have 1GB DDR2-667 module and 512MB DDR2-667 module on the second slot.


This tool also lets you know that you need the SODIMM form factor memory if you run it on LAPTOP...it shows 1GB DDR2-533 SODIMM memory module.


How to remove | Removing trojan.dropper/sys-nv virus


I got infected with trojan.dropper/sys-nv virus last week. Superantispyware was able to remove the infection, but everytime I reboot my pc...the virus keeps coming back trying to run itself or infect my system files so the Superantispyware keeps detecting/blocking and cleaning the same virus over and over, arghh! The other partitions on my hard drive which are my backup got infected too thats why formating all of it is not an option for me :)

I had a hard time looking for a simple solution on the internet since most of the things i found was too complicated like editing a lot of stuff on the registry system which got me worried since it can make your system unstable with one mistake. After trial and error with different antivirus, only KASPERSKY ANTIVIRUS 2009 was able to capture this virus. So I decided to post an easy way on how I cleared the virus and fixed the side effect on the registry.

1. First, download the trial version of KASPERSKY ANTIVIRUS 2009 and free SUPERANTISPYWARE.
3. Make sure you update both with the latest virus definitions from their respective sites.
4. Launch the SUPERANTISPYWARE and go to Preferences and select the Scanning Control tab, check the ff boxes like shown on the image below then click Close.
5. Run a full/deep scan using both KASPERSKY ANTIVIRUS and SUPERANTISPYWARE at the same time on ALL hard-drives/partitions.

Wait for both application to finish scanning, after it...
>> I. You will notice that KASPERSKY found the ff:
---------- a .CMD file on each root directory of ALL the hard-drives/partitions (this are the infected files).
---------- GBM6N.EXE files (this file is the culprit and the one that keeps placing the trojan.dropper/sys-nv on your system).
---------- trojan.dropper/sys-nv (trojan placed by GBM6N.EXE)
---------- adware.vundo variant (I keep detecting this together with trojan.dropper/sys-nv so I'm assuming that this is also with trojan.dropper/sys-nv or GBM6N.EXE)

KASPERSKY will prompt that it automatically delete all the GBM6N.exe and .cmd files after scanning.
7. SUPERANTISPYWARE will also remove the trojan.dropper/sys-nv and adware.vundo variant
8. SUPERANTISPYWARE will ask you to restart your PC... but first, make sure that KASPERSKY already deleted all the GBM6N.exe and .cmd files
9. Restart your PC...
10. Use the search tool on your pc to look for any file that has GBM6N on the filename (on my case,I found several GBM6N-prefetch files)... DELETE those files.
11. Restart your PC again...
12. Notice that when you click any of your drive, it doesnt open and will just show an "open with" window. Don't panic, all your files are still inside :) ...that's only the side effect of the virus we cleared a while ago.
13. Now to fix this "open with" issue... download the FixDrive-Tool HERE, this tool will fix your system registry that causes your drives/partitions not to open.
14. Once downloaded, unzip the file and extract the contents (FixDrive.exe and readme.txt) to a folder
15. Click the extracted FixDrive.exe to run the program.
16. Select the drive-letter from the list that exhibiting the problem then click Fix.
17. Your done... :D
