Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I was searching on Google for sermons on abortion. I had gone to several websites when a ''warning'' window opened from my AVG virus protector program. While I was reading the ''options'' as to what I should do, I noticed a lot of windows began opening. I minimized my AVG window and noticed on my desktop there was an icon ''For Men Only''. I have no idea where that came from. I then opened my AVG program and began a full computer scan. After about 15 minutes of scanning, a small window popped up stating that there was an error and the computer must shut down, of which it did. Now, I cannot re-boot as the computer gets to the Windows XP portion of the boot and starts to reboot again and again. I have a HP Pavilion dv 4000 laptop.
Try booting into safe mode? on a pc hit F8 repeatedly while you boot until you get a boot screen with the safe mode option. Some laptops have differant keys, eg F2, <Del>, F10, but ussualy they state this when it boots up.
when you get into safe mode, go to your run prompt and type "msconfig" hit enter. got to startup, disable all.Go to services, disable all. reboot. if this works, try running an pdated antivirus scan. I recommend using Avast! which is like AVG. It can do a start up scan. also try running something like 'trojan remover' which is free to download.
Good luck! :)
