Your model doesn't come with built-in storage, so that makes this easier. You should first put in another SD card and see if that helps. If it does, you'll probably have to reformat your first SD card, wiping everything on it. Sometimes formatting issues appear to Windows like a virus on an external device. If this does not fix the virus warning problem, then your virus is likely on your computer, not the camera.
A good virus scanner/remover might be in order for your computer.
Here's what you need to do to fix the problem. 1. Run an anti-virus scan. If it hangs in the normal mode, while trying to run the anti-virus scan then do it in safe mode.
Restart and tap F8 while it's starting up. Use the arrow key to highlight safe mode and hit enter.
Once inside safe mode, run your anti-virus scan. If you have a premium anti-virus then the virus infection should be removed.
You can also update the drivers in the computer. You can use RadarSync to scan all drivers so that you can cover them all (all possible outdated drivers), and you can either Google the updates to install them or use RadarSync to automatize the updating process.
If none of these don't fix the problem, then go back to safe mode and check if it does the same there. If not, then the last resort is to do a clean reinstallation. If it's hanging even in safe mode, then it's a different story now. It's hardware problem and you need a technician to check that.
Are you sure that it's the driver that's causing it?
I suggest that you run an anti-virus scan. It might have been caused by a virus infection in your computer.
You can also try using RadarSync to scan your computer for driver problems (outdated drivers), then you can google the drivers and install. RadarSync will give recommendations. If you want RadarSync to do all the things for you, then you can buy the license.
Try this reformat your pc again without using your video card, after installing Operating System (XP) instelled your motherboard software and then shut down your pc. Put the video card in its place and power on your pc, click add new program as it may pop-up after it detect your new hardware.Installed the video card software and restart your PC.
To get to device manager, open windows control panel. Double left click the System icon. Once the System Properties window opends click the Hardware tab & than click the Device Manager button. If this does not open at any point or you can not get there at all. Your operating system is damanged & you will need to reinstall it. Your system may be infected with a virus or worm. If it is, windows system restore is also infected & you can not use win system restore.
Run a full system virus scan with an "up to date scanner".
If you do not have a virus scanner you can download AGV's virus scanner for free. Click on this link: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition
