How can I tell if my computer has a virus?


<ol> <li><span></span> A common symptom of a virus is much slower than normal computer performance. However, there can be other reasons for slow performance, <a href="/mshelp://windows/?id=5a2fccaa-2424-4646-b571-97b557e2c87b#gtmt_hard_disk_def"></a> that needs defragmenting, a computer that needs more memory (RAM)</li> <li><br /></li> <li><span>Are you getting unexpected messages, or are programs starting automatically?</span> Some viruses can cause damage to <span>Windows</span> or some of your programs. The results of this damage might include messages appearing unexpectedly, programs starting or closing automatically, or <span>Windows</span> shutting down suddenly.</li> <li><br /></li> <li><span>Is your modem or hard disk working overtime?</span> An e&#8209;mail virus works by sending many copies of itself by e&#8209;mail. One indicator of this is that the activity light on your broadband or external modem is constantly lit; another is the sound of your computer's hard disk continually working. These are not always symptoms of a computer virus, but when combined with other problems, can indicate a virus infection.</li></ol>

My computer restart after 6-7 minute and sometimes blue screen come .i setup my computer with new windows 7 but the problems still remaining.


I believe you have a virus infection. Format the hard disk completely or install an anti-virus so as to check if it is a virus infection.
I hope this solution has been helpful.

Are norton security says that are security status is at risk.tried fix now a few times,doesnt work.says spyware defs at risk.virus spyware scan at risk.protection updates at risk.please help


In my experience Norton can become flakey at times. Make sure your subscription to norton has not expired. Otherwise try un-installing norton and re-installing it. Part of it may have become corrupted.

I got free norton trial with new laptop, about to expire so yesterday I ordered,as recomended, extended download service,norton internet security subscription and norton SystemWorks basic edition upgrade....


Chances are, the software that is already in your computer will be able to connect to its website and after entering an authorization code provided to you when you ordered it, the software should update itself. Otherwise, contact Norton's website directly.

My Norton Internet Anti Virus is all haywire, what is happening? Somewhere I saw that my Anti Virus Protection has expired. IMy email address is priscillay16@yahoo. com


.well if it has expired then you have to renew it. Yearly! It's best to by the software yourself once and for all.
Norton is a very big program taking a lot of system resources. I've had many complaints on it and removing it manually is a real mission. It takes control of the computer. But if you are happy with it and it works for you go with it and try to buy the actual program CD.
Also keep in mind you can't have more than one antivirus at the same time, without causing a conflict sooner or later.
