What is happening to your computer? If it is slow, and has trouble running programs, you may have to clean your temp files. From your main screen, select start, from here you will see, on the lower right side of that window, a item that says "Run". Select that. When that opens up, type in the following----

%temp%

This will open another window that will show you files that are saved into the temporary folder in your computer. Make sure that all programs are shut off, then go up to the "EDIT" tab, select all, then hit delete selected. This should eliminate any problems with the slowing of your computer. Do this once a week, every time you get on the internet, or do work on the computer, it stores a temp file of what you have done, Yahoo Messenger also seems to add a plethora of files into this when it opens. If you clean this file up on a weekly basis, you shouldn't have too many problems.

If you do have some persistent problems, try Webroot Anti-Virus/Spyware program.. it is the best i have ever used...

if you really think that computer is infected with virus, you will need to reinstall the OS itself just to make sure that everything will be fine, but you will need to have the OS disc for that

When i play a Valve Source game (Garry's mod for example) My screen shows a low-res sorta thing. Like the text is realy messed up so i cant read it and i think its my graphics card (damn you virus) and i...


hey
i dont think u can reinstall a graphic card..i mean if its the problem of a virus you will have to scan for the virus ... if your virus scanner is able to detect virus and delete it well and fine ... if not able to delete it go to ur anti virus site and check what needs to be done for a specific virus .. theyll give u exact steps for example :

neways this all will save you from formatting your comp.. if case there are too many viruses or ur anti virus is not able to detect the viruses i would recommend formatting.

And as for counter strike source (valve source is CS source only rite if i am not wrong?) source being a high end game, your grapphic card may not be able to give the reqd support, so i guess try switching to lower resolution, remove extra effects (like make the smoke look bad and decrease gamma, etc) even in the graphic card properties there can be a few changes that can be made to help boost your comps gaming performace for instance , atleast in cs1.6 switching off vertical interlacing (or something vertical something ) increased the fps . so i guess i you should try that also b4 blaming the viruses :P
for further assisstance feel free send a mail @

No volume icon, and i think my computer has a virus.


To fix the volume: Install your audio drivers. If it's a brand name computer (dell, hp) then go to their website, and serach for the drivers.

For the virus problem: Run your anti-virus program in safe mode. Depending on what it says, and what is happeneing you may have to do more.

COMPUTER HAS A VIRUS


A firewall will just block any access to the Internet incoming and Outgoing, that is not allow by the User, You. Putting a Firewall will assist with not getting any further Viruses, But Not with removing, However if your Mcafee comes with a Firewall and an anti-virus, This would work. You can also Goto Symantec.com or Mcafee and they have free On-line Virus scanners and you can atleast know what your Dealing with. From there Symantec has Virus removal tools for specific viruses. I do however recommend an Anti-virus software, Something like Kaspersky would do you wonders
