    You have a major hardware failure. It will require disassembly of the computer to diagnose exactly what has failed.

Features of NOD32 Antivirus

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 is the most effective protection you can find to combat today's huge volumes of Internet and email threats. It provides comprehensive antivirus and antispyware protection without affecting your computer's performance. ESET NOD32 Antivirus is also one of the fastest antivirus solutions. Using advanced ThreatSense technology, ESET NOD32 Antivirus proactively protects you from new attacks. ESET NOD32 Antivirus detects and disables both known and unknown viruses, Trojans, worms, adware, spyware, rootkits and other Internet threats. Nod32 offers a number of great features that enable you to monitor the security of your computer with history/report logging and routine notification of the latest viruses.

Like many security solutions, the primary function of ESET Nod32 is to detect and block viruses and other infections, a task it easily succeeds at. This software can be run in two different ways: by a simple scan or by customizing your options and running a scan from the Control Centre. The Control Centre gives you access too many great features and numerous scanning options including NOD32, DMON, IMON and EMON. Here is a rundown on a few of the Nod32 scanning features:

  • NOD32 - this component is the most powerful tool against viruses and other infections. It acts as the resident scanner, functioning in the memory of your operating system at all times.
  • DMON - this scan thoroughly combs through office documents and files directly downloaded from the web.
  • IMON - this scanner can be viewed as your front-line defence because it monitors web traffic using HTTP, FTP, SMTP and various Winsock protocols.
  • EMON - this scanner is responsible for detecting viruses that may have originated from email messages.

While this is a highly advanced program, Nod32 allows you to get up and running with a simple installation.

I am using nod32...yest i got some virus in my system.....but when m tring to scan 4m es automaticaly closin every me out???

Well I don't wanna scare do but you are in a real **** bro. But don't worry try this solution.
First of all back-up all your data (somewhere else not your hard drive).
First option available to you is to RESTORE YOUR SYSTEM IN SAFE MOOD (you can go to boot to safe mode by pressing the F8 key at the system startup you might have to press F8 key more than 1 time).
If you are using windows xp then you can restore your system by going to START> ALL PROGRAMS> ACCESSORIES> SYSTEM TOOLS here you will find the SYSTEM RESTORE option (restore your system at any available date before which you got that virus).

you can try scanning via nod32 in safe mood. If nod isn't already running go to the installation folder (normally it is C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security) and run egui.exe after that try scanning your computer.

Third option
is that you can try online scan offered by many antivirus companies like mcafee etc (try googling with the Terms "free online scan" to get the complete list of online scan providers).

Fourth one
is to try the standalone virus removal tools like ones provided by the symantic corporation or try googling with the terms "virus name+ remover".

Fifth option is try installing a new antivirus (in this case i'll recommend mcafee) and try scanning your system with your new antivirus (but before installing any other antivirus first remove or disable NOD).

Sixth option: Remove your hard disk and scan it on another computer with an up to date antivirus (preferably nod or mcafee) This option worked for me a lots of time.

7th option: Get a portable antivirus copy it to your USB and up date it (do it on any other PC). After updating your portable antivirus go to your pc and scan it via portable antivirus. Before connecting your USB to your own pc please disable your computer from writting data to your PC you can learn how to do it here or send me mail at to get those reg files.

Here are the links from where you can download portable antivirus software:
or here

Last thing you can do is to install a fresh copy of operating system then install an antivirus update it and scan your PC thoroughly. But until you have scanned your PC twice DON"T OPEN ANY OTHER PARTION like Local D, Local E and even your USB
I've personally used all of these options at some stage of my life and they worked for me I hope the same for you.
If none of the above options work or you need any further guidence then contact me at
I'll be happy to help you anytime.
Please gimme a comment, feedback or like.

My dell inspiron 1525 wont start up

The repair occurs when there was an improper shutdown/power failure. Depending upon the size of the hard disk, it could take a few hours (especially large capacity hard disks) as it need to do several passes over the whole drive.
Just let it run until it finishes, you know if it is still running by the flashing disk LED.

Hello suresh_7chan,
This can be either a software problem or a hardware proble.
Most likely hardware problem is the primary hdd. (Hard disk drive).
To check the hardware end of things. Re-check all data & power connections within the system, paying close attention to your primary hard disk drive. Most blue screens leave a message. If you can write down the message from a blue screen it can be helpful. (Some blue screens go by very fast & it may be too hard to write down the message generated by windows). Another suggestion. If your hdd is large enough, 80GB or more. You can load your windows CD into your CD-Rom drive & boot to the windows CD. In the few screens that windows will display during setup. You'll have the option to create a second partition within the free space of your hdd. Create a new partition & allow windows to do a quick format.
Once completed, install windows into that new partition. Up date windows to SP2, at least. If windows runs correctly without blue screens or sudden restarts, than your old windows is either infected with a virus/worm or just messed up. install antivirus software & run a full system scan. You can use windows disk manager software to change the old C:\ to something like G:\. To run windows disk manager software, click the start button & open run. Type, diskmgmt.msc into the run window & click ok.
Again, if your new install of windows functions correctly & no virus has been found you can copy your old data to your new install of windows. (This is so you do not loose your data).

I believe it was a virus. If it ever comes back run hijack this (free) and have somebody take a look at the log. It will remove almost anything. You can also take a look at the task manager to make sure explorer, or any other program, isn't causing explorer to freeze and restart (it will be taking a large amount of memory or cpu usage).

For solving blue screen error

HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)
