Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

System reboots I think I got a virus in my compaq presario and I have Norton antivirus. Yeah Norton.... I ran the recovery disk which wiped out all of my documents, etc. I can run it in safe mode but it shuts down and reboots in regular mode. I am trying to find the problem. I am going to look for updated drivers next. Any suggestions?


Answers :

Dear sir,
I will request you to first change your Anti virus. I have personally used Norton, and I have found AVG free version detects and clean more viruses which Norton has not notified as threat. For getting back to your PC in normal stage you may windows Restore utility. It is very useful. you can find it in Start>Programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Please restore to a date when you think your PC was in good state.
Please rate me if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

Virus? My computer has been sending error messages that I have a potential virus threat and provides virus protection options. WHen I select them it takes me to an advertiser page. Also, my wallpaper is changes and will not change back. When I select ctr -alt- dlt a message appears basically stating that the administrator has blocked this option. Finally, it will not let me download any virus removers and I believe the one I have is outdated because it doesn't find this virus. What else can I do


Firstly, the most important thing you can do is keep up-to-date virus protection-either a paid program like "Mcafee" or a free version, (which I'm not sold on but better than nothing)like AVG.....available here:http://free.avg.com/download-avg- ... Gateway 450SX4 Notebook
