Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially and if I may remark, a very challenging and time consuming virus cleanup. Some that you could try:

  • determine what virus files/names are involved. Some would be appearing in "msconfig" startup;
  • some would not allowed to be deleted, try delete in Safe Mode;
  • in some instances, some services would have to be stopped using Ctrl-Alt-Del;
  • download, install and run RRT (remove restriction tool);
  • download, install and run Ad-Aware.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Glad that it is now working good again. Incidentally, due to my rank at the site, even a "Helpful" was detrimental to my ratings, they went down.

    Still to your concern, what model of the Zune media players and what seems to be wrong with it?

    Cheers.

First, go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs and remove all the programs you don't use. Then go here:

Microsoft's website can scan your computer for viruses and optimize performance. The process can take a while so be patient.

My computer keeps shutting down when I am on the internet.


Well it sounds to me like it may be a problem with the power supply... find a friend or relative with a computer they aren't using, replace your power supply unit with theirs... use the pc as normal for a few days and see if it happens again. if not.. buy yourself a new power supply... or if ur friend/relative doesnt need theirs.. use that one. if it does happen again... id say take it in to a shop and have the cpu and motherboard tested.

Re: Notepad format HDD


You can use any disk as long as you own the license code. Do you know the type of virus and it's name. I could possibly help with a removal tool or advice if I know more.
