VIRUS


Follow thegiven steps to remove virus:
As soon as you suspect that your computer has a virus, remove your computer from any networks it might be on, as well as from the Internet, so that you don't inadvertently spread the bug to others. Unplug your network cable if you have to.
If you have virus-scanning (anti-virus) software installed, run it.
If you don't have anti-virus software, you'll need to obtain some. If you can't get it from a network administrator or download it from an uninfected computer, you can mail-order it from a retailer. Start your computer (still not connected to a network) and follow the instructions that came with the anti-virus software.
Keep running the virus-scanning software until your computer comes up clean.
Reconnect your computer to the Internet and check with the anti-virus software's publisher to make sure you have the latest updates. If not, download them now.
After updating the anti-virus software, run it again until your computer comes up clean.

Typing errors when using keyboard. letters missing when typing


these are the basic reasons for this problem

  • if you are using the Wireless Keyboard, then try to change the Batteries. Many times when the Batteries get weak this type of keyboard issues while typing occurs. So try to insert new batteries and check whether the problem is recurring. If it is coming again then it is the Hardware fault.


  • This can also happen because of the Virus. There are some virus or spyware that are the causes of this issue. So I would like to suggest you to scan your system using the updated Anti Virus. Once the Virus gets removed that are causing this issue than problem will get fixed up. Don't forget that your Anti Virus should me latest with proper updates. Simple way to check that your Keyboard is working properly, by connecting to some other system. If the same problem is coming that means there is an Keyboard issue and you will have to change the keyboard. And if your keyboard is working properly on another system that means there is fault in your system. Then try to scan your machine with the Anti Virus. Doing this will exactly know you what was the issue and you can troubleshoot that.


  • if PS2 port was having some issue, that was lead to missed and repeated letters on the keyboard. Hope that you are not having any PS2 issues because then you will have to fix your motherboard.
first you had to identify the cause in your pc by connecting it to other systems and then proceed to fix the cause

    Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


    Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
    • Switch on your PC
    • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
    • Chose Safe Mode
    • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

    Boot up


    Hi Jen05.

    When the computer boots, if it asks for an O.S.
    (operating system) hilghlight "Windows Vista" and press enter.

    If it asks whether to run Windows Vista or something like:
    "Windows Recovery Console (reccomended)", select Windows Recovery Console. Follow the steps until it asks if you wish to run System Restore. Click the appropriate response that basically denies this suggestion. Let it go through the steps (you may need to press "Next").

    Once it is done, restart Windows as you normally would.
    If the problem persists, try the following:


    When the computer boots, if it asks for an O.S.
    (operating system) hilghlight "Windows Vista" and press F8.

    Now scroll down to something along the lines of:
    "Safe mode - core drivers only" and press enter.

    When it loads the desktop, it is normal for there to be incorrect graphics, missing desktop image, etc.

    Now virus scan the entire computer with every anti-virus and spyware software you have. Fix problems found with the programs as needed. Now reboot the PC as you normally would.

    If it STILL doesn't boot correctly, or at all, please say so;
    I am willing to provide all my knowlege to help as much as I can.
