How To Remove Clear Clean ‘Infected By Commwarrior Virus’ From Nokia 6600 6263 6630 3650

The popularity of Symbian OS cell phones is the reason for rise in number of Viruses written targeting Symbian.

One of the recent and most common virus is the Commwarrior virus. When your cell phone is infected by the Commwarrior virus, you’ll see a message – ‘Infected by Commwarrior‘ around the operator logo on the main screen of your cell phone / mobile phone.

Commwarrior is a bit of an annoying virus, as it starts shutting down and restarting your phone automatically. It also spreads itself by send a copy of the virus to your friends and family listed in your phonebook, as a message. When they open the message, their phone too will be infected by Commwarrior, just the way your phone was, when you opened the Commwrrior virus message.

There is no need to panic as you can remove this virus yourself without having to go to a mobile phone repair shop.

Here’s how you can remove, clear and clean the commwarrior virus from your Nokia cell phone :

1> Remove the memory card from your cell phone and keep it in a clean and safe place.
2> Turn on your cell phone and key in #7370#
3> Security code prompt comes up, if you have set a security key, then key it in, else key in the default security key which is 12345.

This step is actually hard resetting your mobile phone. Which means that you might lose all data if you have not backed it up and moved it on to the memory card. Hence it is very important that you remove the memory card before performing this process.

Chances are that your memory card may also be infected by the virus. To remove the virus from memory card, put it on a card reader, connect it to your PC, either run one of the latest anti-virus software on it or format it if the anti-virus fails to remove the virus (You’ll end up losing the data here), which should clean it up.

Put the memory card back in your cell phone, restart the cell phone, which is now clean of the Commwarrior virus.

Solve Windows Live Messenger / Writer’s Hr:0x80070643 Problem

I was trying to set up Windows Live Writer on my Windows XP, but I encountered hr:0x80070643 error. While searching for a solution, I read a couple of blogs and forum posts and figured this error was generic and not specific to Windows Live Writer.

People were having similar problems, when trying to install Windows Live Messenger (WLM 2009). I was able to fix this for problem for Windows Live Writer, I think the same fix should work for Windows Live Messenger.

The problem seems to with the .NET Framework on the system and not Windows Live Writer or Windows Live Messenger. I’m just guessing here, so please do not come to any conclusion.

Here’s the fix that worked for me:

1> Uninstall currently installed .NET framework. I had .NET Framework version 1.1 on my system. To uninstall it, click on “Start –> Control Panel –> Add remove Programs“. Find installed .NET Framework and click on uninstall.

2> Download and install the latest version of Microsofts .NET Framework, at this point when I am writing this article, it is version 3.5 SP1 which can be downloaded from here. Or you can search the latest version of .NET Framework here.

Once installed, reboot your machine and try installing Windows Live Writer. It should work fine. If this works for Windows Live Messenger (WLM 2009), please let me know so that I can update this blog post.

Update:

As per feedback from ‘ABC’ and ‘BlahBlah Koala’ – Messenger.msi file from http://www.mediafire.com/?kynmtu1zzzl works.

Should I Throw Away The Old Components After I Upgraded My Computer

You don’t upgrade your computer often. And once you do, you normally don’t feel the need to keep the old components, and you’ll think about disposing them – errr.. via Ebay for few $$.

Before you dispose your old components make sure you don’t need it in the future. There may be some products, which may be of no use now, but may be they’ll come handy if the new component starts malfunctioning.

Let’s suppose you install a new component and its malfunctioning, you have no idea if it is a technical glitch or some installation problem. In such scenarios, you can replace the new component with your old component ( which you are sure it’s working ), and then check if it works fine. If it does, you can be sure that it’s a technical glitch with your new component, else it most likely will be something to do with the installation problem!
