You should have a recovery partition on your hard drive. When windows is loading push shift F10 or some key combinations to enter the windows recovery. Or you can boot using a windows cd and try to repair a previous installation of windows. Back up whatever files you can first though. This may lead to reinstalling windows completely

How can i remove virus


Removing viruses, though technical, is yet a very simple process if all the required steps are properly followed.
The basic steps are:
  • Buy or download a reliable antivirus software
  • Install the antivirus software
  • Update antivirus software with the latest virus definitions
  • Perform a complete system scan
Install an Antivirus Program in the System What is Antivirus program? An antivirus is a program that searches for, identifies and removes potential viruses existing in the computer system.
Antivirus software: Some of the most commonly and reliable antivirus programs available in the market are -
  • Symantec Norton antivirus
  • AVG antivirus
  • McAfee Scan
  • Microsoft Antivirus
The antivirus software should be updated regularly to retain its effectiveness.
Before installing the antivirus, close all open applications and terminate any suspicious processes using Task Manager. Sometimes, you may need to boot into safe mode or safe mode with command prompt to delete suspicious programs and references to them in the Windows Registry (run regedit from the command prompt to open the registry editor).
Search engines are excellent tools to find out whether a certain process is harmful or not. You can also get steps on how to remove a specific virus manually.
Removing the virus beforehand might be necessary, as some viruses will not allow an antivirus to operate. However, if you are not successful, you may still continue with the installation.

Scan the System to Identify and Locate the Virus Usually, the antivirus will run automatically when the system reboots after the installation. Therefore, it might identify the virus automatically. Moreover, you may want to run a quick system scan to locate the virus.
Troubleshooting the Virus Infected Areas After the antivirus identifies the infected areas, the next step is to rectify those areas.
Methods of Eliminating Viruses
Generally, the antivirus adopts one of two methods to eliminate the virus:
  • Removing the virus - When the virus can be easily identified and can be removed without affecting other files, then the antivirus removes it from the host place.
  • Quarantine - his is done when the virus cannot be easily identified removed from the file and the removal of virus means the removal of the complete file. In this method, although the virus is not eliminated, it is rendered inactive by moving the file into "quarantine" and renaming it.
Perform a Full System Scan Even after the virus is removed from the system, the next step is to scan the whole system to ensure that no infected files remain.

Recording (?) light on front of case continuously flash's, as if it is writing to the HD. haven't found anyway to stop or correct that.


Hi,
The Hard Disk activity LED indicator blinks only when there is some Read/ Write activity. In your case if the LED is blinking frequently, it certainly means some activity. It could by due to the following reasons: -
1. Antivirus program automatically scanning the disk
OR
2. Probably due to some virus activity.

So, I suggest that you may check the Antivirus program settings for any automatic/ scheduled scans (as some antivirus programs automatically start scanning the external drive). Secondly, if there appears any virus activity (which is likely) you should update the Antivirus program and scan the system. If you dont have the Antivirus program installed on your PC, to disinfect the system you may install antivirus, update it and scan.
AVG 2011 Antivirus FREE Edition
From the above link AVG can be downloaded and installed for FREE. Its basic antivirus protection.
Install AVG and scan the system.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

My Asus m51 keeps freezing. when using internet or office media player ect can you help?


System freeze may be due to overheating or Apllication failure or virus or worm infection.

Open the notebook and get it clean with an Air Blower.

Scan your PC with a good Antivirus like kaspersky Internet security 2010,A-Squared Anti-Malware with their lastest definiton updates install.

Type "msconfig" in the "Run" prompt.
Click "startup" tab
Untick all the programs that run during system startup except Antivirus program.

 Clean your PC with any system Cleaner software.

This will most probably solve the problem.

Use Mozilla Firefox or Opera for web browsing, they are more secure than Internet explorer.

Use VLC Player for all media play as it takes little system resource while running.

Lost files due to pop up virus


If this virus really deletes the files its really hard to recover it. But if the virus just hide your files. You can still recover it. Just unhide all hide files then look for your files if it is still there. If you can make a copy do it. You can also do this way. Type the filename you need on the search bar and use look also for hidden files option.

If you can make a copy do it. Then test it on a different computer with a good known updated antivirus installed. If your needed files will be deleted by that antivirus, if not then that solves your problem. Your other files to be follow.

Hope this helps you.

For the pop up virus deal with it, try to use Avira free antivirus.

Also what is youre operating system? If this doesn't help you we can device another solution
