If you just want to shut your system down, turn it off, then press and hold the on/off button in. The sys will eventually, after about 5-10 secs, turn itself off. However, you will have to reconfigure your HDD and re-install your OS to get rid of the virus. Your best way to do that is to completely wipe the drive, then format it, prior to re-install. However, I would recommend you make a system disk before doing anything you the HDD. I would also recommend getting a copy of your sm bus controller driver from the hdd as there are a lot of us out here who have found it not on their recovery discs. These are your choices. Good luck to you.

Hi.. first of all when ur system gets attacked by virus or threats its difficult to perform delete operations. The only best way is to format ur system with the help of XP cd. This XP cd will reboot ur operating system so that all viruses and threats available in ur C drive will get deleted... So the only option is to re install ur OS with XP cd...

thank u

Shuts down on boot up


hi sir,

Does it just shuts down or it reboots?
If it shuts down this type of problems can be resolved by scanning the computer for a virus or
using the Windows Repair Disks. During boot if you can hit F8 and use safemode with command and prompt.

1 Type CHKDSK/F then hit enter
2 Press Y then hit Enter then reboot to see if this works.

If it reboots while booting up then.

Other things that might be preventing the computer to boot up most likely is the memory.
Take out the memory put it on a different slot or try a new memory.
Also make sure that the power supply fans are not dirty this prevents the computer to bootup.

On my desk top computer, I received a ThinkPoint (fake) Anti-Virus. I did CTRL, ALT, DEL. Task window opened and I deleted hotfix.exe. I also ran malwarebytes anti-malware. problem seemed to be fixed....


Run Malwarebytes again but before you do turn off system restore. There is probably a reboot hacktool in the restore volume. Windows will not allow Anti-virus programs to scan there by default so the only way to kill the hacktool is to turn of restore. The hacktool reinstalls the virus as soon as you reboot. So turn it off, run malwarebytes and another program called Cureit! http://www.freedrweb.com/cureit/?lng=en save to desktop (it's free too) when you run the program it doesn't install it runs a quick scan first then offers you a full scan after the quick scan. Also a very good program. Run them both. After you're done turn system restore back on and create a new restore point. Good luck
If this helps you resolve your problem, please

as well. Thank you.

I brought my hp about 2 years ago it worked for about a month now im trying to fix it but when it comes on it goes to the screen where it asksstart windows normally how do i reboot


You can choose to start windows normally and it should bring you to regular desktop. If not to reboot you actually have to shut it off by holding down power button until it shuts off. If still issue try to boot in to safe mode by pressing F8key on boot up and keep on pressing it till advanced start up comes up. Once in safe mode try to run virus scan to see is there any viruses. Also in same menu there is safe mode with networking if you choose this one you can do updates since it will allow you to go online even that you are in safe mode. This might resolve the issue.Hope this helps.

I have a desk top computer that shuts down when I try to sign on in 1 minute then it starts back up and shuts down again


that can be caused by a few things.
1. bad motherboard: Could be failures on the board, such as a popped capacitor, or a weakened power supply. If your video card is integrated into your board, you would replace them both.

2. bad memory: You could be losing ram integrity, and the computer could be rebooting itself. Try starting in safe mode, and also try starting in "disable reboot on failure" mode to get the error code from the blue screens.

3. corrupted windows: Your OS could be corrupt: a bad sector on the drive or a corrupted registry entry, or even a virus.

4. bad video card: The memory area of the video card could be affected just like the memory of the system board. Also, if your video is integrated onto your board, you will need to replace them both.

5. Thermal event (overheating): The cooling fans on your machine could be failing, causing the cpu to get hot and reboot.

Since you did not share any details about the crash, I cannot be specific about what is happening, but those are the 'usual suspects'

Sometimes viruses can cause reboots. Also, Emachines are plaqued by bad power supplies...could be that.

Emachines w2828 keeps shutting down reboot/Screen Freeze


I dont thing this is a virus problem but a heat problem. if you dont mind getting inside the box see how clean it is and put your hand on the power box case .. then unplug all the hardware except the mother board then turn the unit on, if it goes on then plug 1 hardware at a time.

I tryed to restore my emachine w1800 with my restore disk and when I reboot a blue screen comes up a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is...


could be a couple of things, usually when you get the BSOD (blue screen of death) there is usually a ram problem, have you noticed your pc getting slow, sometimes the ram sticks break down over a period, try getting hold of a memory tester software and checking the PC, this is usually done through the inital start up before windows is loaded, please ensure though that if you need to get more ram that you use the correct one for your motherboard, buying incorrect ram can cause more problems and is a waste of money, www.crucial.com is good for checking ram in pcs, also you need to make sure that if it says low density you use low density ram, or high density for high density. also make sure that you buy the one with the correct amount of pins.

hope that this helps

My computer is rebooting over an over ....dont have time to do anything....now i open my computer on safe ....mode what should i do??? i have window xp


If your computer fully loads Windows, than starts a restard process you are looking at having an annoying virus. Since there are several different viruses that can cause this problem, if this is the reason for the restarting, you would be best off loading Windows in safe mode (using the F8 key before Windows starts to load will give you a menu with options like SAFE MODE) and than trying to scan it for viruses.

If your computer doesn't actually load Windows, but restarts after the Windows loading screen, you could have a corrupt driver causing Windows to restart. If your computer were slow, you would see the error message, faster computers go through the error screen too fast. The best way to determine this would be to start in SAFE MODE and see if the same problem exists.

Let me know what happens after you start in SAFE MODE. 6 Pts Rate Answer

Computer shuts down.


Hello;

So i guess that the PSU is good. As i diagnose of what you have said, i digested a conclusion that when the computer shutdown when application run. there a problem conflicting the application to another application or such an application trigering the system to shutdown.

Some causes of this problem are:

The system is infected by known and unknown virus
The driver of the system are not properly installed
The application program committed an errors trigering the system to shutdown.

Possible solutions:

1. Scan you system with a potent anti virus
2. Remove the installed driver of the sytem and reinstall it after restarting
3. Unistall the application that causes shutdown problem and you can reinstall it after restarting.
4. remove newly installed hardware or install the correct driver of the hardware.


Note in scanning your system with antivirus you should scan it it safemode.

If all the solution did not work to your system. please notify me for further solution.
