You have probably installed a new anti-virus, say McAfee 2009, installation goes fine but, well it needs a lot of memory before it scans, if your computer has only 512MB memory it will definitely turn-off itself...
So I suggest to get another anti-virus or add more memory to your PC.

post us more info if you still has the problem.

happy fixya!!!

When you turn on your computer press F8 for the startup options and choose Safe Mode. When the computer enters Safe Mode run another system scan and then restart. If you are unable to enter your account again, try to do a System Restore (Start\All Programs\Accessories\System) to a date before the infection happened and then do another full system scan.

Virus says open with

If you have an Antivirus program on your computer, try getting it to scan and quarantine the virus first. If that doesn't work, and you're running XP or higher windows, restore your computer to an earlier date than the problem started occurring. I've had success with this method. Go to "Help and Support" and go to "Backup and Restore", then "Restore". Pick a date and then let the machine run- sometimes it takes it a couple minutes to run, then it will tell you to turn off the computer and let it restart. Good luck, hope this helps.

How do it get it to scan from my printer to my computer. It says "Scan Error. Try scan from computer or see documentation. Press OK I did and it just shows the three options. Please help TY

Generally there are two ways to scan.
1. Your printer has a management program which controls most operations. On a Lexmark, it is the Lexmark Imaging Studio. Select scan there.

2. Your document software, Word, Photoshop, etc, can start the scanner. Usually under File, look for Acquire....Import....Twain.... Your printer/scanner should be listed. Select and start scanning.

If all this fails, you may be missing a driver, get them from your printers MFG web site.

good luck

Problem rebooting turning on and even if using start up

if it just do not start ...the problem may be the operating system that cached some issue...but if the problem is that the system keep on restarting itself on boot until starts...the problem is more then sure with the RAM memory ....I bet its gave some blue screen errors almost each time it wont start ..and said something about failing ...0000000and something like letters or a digit

anyway not insist in ..just try t reinstall a clean os ..fromthe disc...and format in NTFS slow the partition windows will run ...and see if it fix the problem may also be caused by a missing file that was deleted during the clean up ...( bug related) ...lets hope that s the issue ...cause if it is like I suspect wil have to replace the ram memory

Winmail.exe message on my computer.

Winmail.exe can be a legitimate windoze component, but in this case it's probably a Virus. Scan your hard drives with your favorite updated Anti-Virus or install one (preferably up to date) and scan your hard drive/drives in safe mode (by pressing F8 on boot then once in safe mode scan them). That should tell you whether it is a virus or not. If not, you have repair options that can be explored. They will depend on the OS version you are running.
I hope this helps.
