Question about Operating Systems

PC Tools stops at DEEP SCAN When I'm trying to scan My computer system.

I open my PC Tools scan program and it will scan my system until it goes
into DEEP SCAN. PC TOOLS shows that I have 155 errors, but stops at
108 errors in the DEEP SCAN and will not go any further. The program totally stops. I am unable to repair any errors because the key on the left side of the program are not lit up.

Re: PC Tools stops at DEEP SCAN When I'm trying to scan...

This is PC Tools Spyware Doctor program? Try booting the computer in Safe Mode (press F8 during the boot process before you see the Windows logo and select Safe Mode from this list of options) and then running the scan. With heavier infections many cleaning tools can be blocked or have inconsistent performance.

I would scan for virsus first. Then a malware scan second. In all likely hood you have picked up a bug somewere. If this does not work, you might try resetting your internet browser. In Internet Explorer (IE), click on tools, internet options, the advance tab, click on reset and then restore advance settings. You will have to close IE and reopen it for the changes to take affect.

The school computer was loaded with different kinds of viruses?what would I do after I downloaded an anti-virus software?

Hi. Thanks for your question.

Every anti-virus software has function called "full scan" or "deep scan" you need to perform this scan to remove all of the viruses. After it's finished program should give you report on how many viruses it's fund and what are your option on what do to with infected files. To have peace of mind run scan again after first one has finished. That way you can be sure that PC is free of viruses.

Thank You for using FixYa.

XP folder access

Did you try to open your search and type in fonts, or pictures, or jpg. etc. You can always go back to the system restore if you have it working, which is done from clicking on start menu, seeing accessories at the top of the file, clicking it on, and going to system tools, clicking it on and going to system restore. Find a date that the computer worked right and restore to that point. Good Luck, hose visusus are a bummer.
