First and simplest thing to try is make sure printer, monitor, and anything else attatched to your computer is turned off and the main box (of course. switch off at the socket and remove plug-plugs
next check no wires have come loose in the back of your computer- leave for a few minutes (go and make a cup of tea, coffee whatever) plug something else into the socket like a radio or hairdryer to make sure a fuse haasn't blown or something.
plug everything back into sockets switch plugs back on, turn on monitor and other bits and bobs but leave the main box till last switch this on and hold the button down for about the count of 5, and hopefully all will be well. Good Luck

Yahoo loads ad and virus scanner goes off


It is hard to say but I would automatically jump to the conclusion that you have a virus already. I'm assuming this programs wants you to fix or get rid of the virus that is says yahoo is, only thing is you have to pay to do so. In a nutshell people sometimes download virus protection program which are in fact virus, malware, spyware etc. I would suggest getting a real virus protection software set and cleaning out your system, it is also possible that you virus protection suit and firewall In Particular has not approved yahoo as a valid accessible address, but in which case the program does not respond to the user by telling them that yahoo is a virus, there is also a chance that you may in fact be accessing a fake yahoo page, I suggest getting a norton trail, cleaning your system, deleting avast--Good Luck.

Monsters do not move while attacking


Update your Adobe flash player software to the latest version:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

If that doesn't fix it you might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

My seagate hard attacked by viruses that make the file shortcut. unfortunately all my files are hidden and I ca't get them back.


Are you able to scan the drive with an antivirus program? If you are able to actually go into the drive then on your toolbar go to Tools>Folder Options, then go to the View tab. Under the Hidden Files and Folders heading make sure it is set to Show hidden files and folders. If this is already set and you still can't see your files then it is a direct attack by the virus. Do you have an anti virus program, if so set it to do a deep scan of your whole computer including the seriously infected drive? If not there are quite a few good free anti virus programs on the web for download. Read my tip here on the best free anti virus programs: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6790239-virus_infection_best_free_anti_virus

There are words appearing on the screen saying "This Computer is being Attacked!" every 10-20 seconds.. and i cant open the display settings..


You have one of the many rogue anti-spyware/anti-virus programs that are on the Internet. Once on your computer they flood you with messages claiming your computer is under attack, or has a bunch of viruses, and tries to get you to buy their product to "clean" your system. They usually also block real antivirus programs, keep you from visiting many websites, install browser hijackers and other junk. In short, they're a pain.

Download the free version of MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and install it. Run a complete scan (it may take a while, so be patient) and let it correct problems it finds. This is a very effective program and will clean up the majority of common malware applications.

BleepingComputer.com has a large number of tools and competent people available to help you if you still have problems getting your computer clean.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

May have encountered spyware


Download a program called MalwareBytes from www.downloads.com . You will need to download to another computer and copy the file to a USB or CD to put on your infected computer. Boot the infected computer into safe mode (press F8 repeatedly during the initial boot sequence of the computer). Select Safe Mode with Networking. Once in safe mode, install the MalwareBytes program and run a full scan. Have it remove all infected files. Reboot the computer normally, run a full scan again and then run a full virus scan. Let me know your results.
