While running a virus scan on my Toshiba A105 laptop the computer totally went dead. I assumed the harddrive had crashed but in addition to that I get no power, no LEDs lighting, nothing. I checked the external power supply and the power input for shorts but they all seem find. What has happened to the power on my Laptop?

My pc have a virus and I can not open any program.what could I do?


Remove the virus or restore the harddrive to factory restore. Try to backup you data if you can before you restore the harddrive.

Computer is very slow and sometimes freezes disk cleanup and defragmenter dont improve things


Sounds like one of two things:
1) Hardware (hardrive) failure-
Could have a dead spot on your harddrive. Have you had any blue screens associated with this? If so your hard drive may be shot. Backup what you can and replace the hard drive.
or
2) Malware/trojan/spyware clogging up resources-
Download and run Spybot- Search and Destroy and run a full update and scan. Also update and run your anti-virus software. If you don't have one, or want a second opinion, search for Avast AV, great free anti-virus tool.

My computer is still crashing/freezing


It may be because of an y virus or trogans in your pc. Just format your c drive and reload the operating system. And before accessing other drives and internet install any antivirus softwares and update it immediately when connected to net.

Cannot download anything

Use system restore to a restore point before your computer crashed. AVG is one of the best antivirus programs out there. I even recommend it.

If your are using Vista, insert the DVD and boot from the CD/DVD. When you get to the install page select the repair your computer option.
From the options select System Restore.

On a personal tip:

I am currently using BitDefender Tolal Security and I am recommending this one also.
If you have formatted your harddrive, then you are SOL!!!

The date & time on my Sony viao laptop will not stay accurate. Please advise.


This is a good indicator that you have a virus. Your CMOS battery could be dead or dying but that is rather unlikely and once the computer is running the clock should be accurate if that is the problem. I would run a virus/spyware scan ASAP.

If you have access to another computer with internet access, make sure that computer has the most upto date antivirus and malware scanners installed and slave your harddrive to it. As a slave you will be able to scan your harddrive without initialising your copy of Windows and therefore not initialising the virus on your harddrive.

We have lost many programs and tried to delete some that was not needed. we have lime wire lost on the computer we half way find it then it says it is still running and has to be closed don't know whats...


Try ctrl+alt+del look under the applications tab and see if it is running. If so end task. Try to uninstall pgm and reinstall.
You could also try a registry cleaner to fix your problems. There is a goo free one called Ccleaner. Use cautiously, you can really mess up the computer registry and cause the computer to crash!!
You may also have a virus.. Run virus and spyware scan..
Make sure you uninstall programs, dont just delete them.

Internet connection crashes-mouse freezes


I am assuming you are running windows.
Make sure you are running an antivirus program as well as anti spyware program like 'windows defender' . Run complete scans with both antivirus and antispyware delete any virus or spyware detected by both programs and check/compare the difference.
I hope it helped!
