Hi, If system is stuck and will not let you do anything (including power down), remove the AC adapter & the battery. Reinsert batter and apply AC power. On boot before Windows start press F8 and select Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, uninstall any program that you feel may be preventing Windows from starting normally. You can also select Last Known.... and Windows will also start with the last known good configuration. You can also use the Uninstall or the Add/remove Program. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

How do I add antivirus protection to my pc

Hi, to try a "free trial" anti-virus protection; some product offer a 30 days trial, up to 90 days of free trial service, with the option to buy, and install the (Full) software after the trial expires. This is a link to one of the site:,
just "Highlight" the site,(right) click, "copy" paste to your search engine (Iexplorer) etc. This will take you to the trial version of the download. "I hope this helps' Ya"

I can't download free AVG antivirus software, only the PC package

For AVG, you have to download an installer first from and then download and install AVG. Alternatively download Avira on a dofferent machine and copy to your PC and install. I doubt if you can download AVG with this new system of installer.

Trying to get a virus removed from my computer

Here's a few scanners to try out.

Windows OneCare safety scanner (Use Internet Explorer to open and run this scanner):

ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus Online Scan (Use Internet Explorer to open and run this scanner):

Then I recommend you download and install the following applications:

Free trial of ESET NOD32 (Yeah, you just scanned, however that scanner doesn't run a startup scan like the software-version):

Ad-Aware Free:

Spybot Search & Destroy:

AVG Anti-Rootkit Free:

I HIGHLY recommend that you install all these scanners before scanning anything. Make sure to restart after each installation, regardless if they ask you to restart or not. Do not run either the online or offline scanners at the same time, they will cause a conflict. So please remember, run each scanner at least once, but one at a time. That includes the downloaded scanners and the online scanners. Don't run either at the same time.

Let us know how it works for you, hope you get this problem resolved.

Virus problem

First install an antivirus, and try doing a full scan: AVG Free - Download AVG

If the antivirus is not enough use an antimalaware that removes more viruses use this one: Spybot - Search & Destroy - Free software download , install, update, and perform a full system scan.

If that is still not enough, the best thing to do is doing a backup of your files, and reinstalling Windows.
