Question about Acer Aspire 5720-6661 Notebook PC

1 Answer

I recently had a bankerfox.a virus and tried to repair it using a download and now the computer will not boot and keeps powering down when I try to boot from the selection screen. Is this problem repairable without my original boot discs? Thank you

    I tried doing what you said above and it says " \WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM is corrupt or missing

    It won't allow me to do anythingafter this screen. I tried all other options and nothing works, just powers down and repeats these options.

    Thanks!

You could boot, press the F8 while booting, and "IF" the option for 'boot to last known good configuration' option is there, use it.
This should boot as normal, then download and install either AVG free edition, or Avast free edition, run and remove the virus that way.
I hope this helps, but note, not all systems allow the boot to last good option.

    In that case you do need the origional boot/install disc.

My computer is freezing or not responding. Also downloads are being blocked completely


Sounds like you have a virus. boot into safemode with networking and download malwarebytes run that in safe mode. then restart into normal windows and run malware again. then i suggest downloading AVG its free and antivirus great program. also if you are using mcaffee dont use it. It slows your PC down way to much

Could be a virus - download a program called hitman pro here: http://download.cnet.com/Hitman-Pro-3-32-bit/3000-2239_4-10895604.html and run it, that should free you of any viruses, if the problem persists try reinstalling explorer and if that doesn't solve it try using the recovery partition on boot up and try repairing.

I have gotten viruses on my laptop. BankerFox.A and Win32/Nuqel.E what can I do do?


Hi there,
Try running a virus scan with Avast. Unless you want to pay money for a virus cleaner like Norton. http://www.avast.com

Toshiba satellite A70-KL1 notebook shuts down


Scan the Computer using any latest updated anti virus program for any potential threat.

If the computer is not infected by any virus or trojan then you may also try performing System restore to the time when the Computer worked normally.

If the Computer keeps shutting down randomly after turning ON then the Power Supply Unit in the Notebook requires service.

Computer keeps rebooting on its own


Most likely a virus has or malware has got into the system try SAFEMODE and install or do virus check if this does not work get someone to download one of the well known free virus checks and when you use as boot CD it will do virus check other options are more drastic like take hard drive out and do virus check with another computer of Format but try and save date before these options are attempted
