Re: possible virus

Try starting in safe mode. If it works then you need a graphics driver.

Problems after blue screen of *****

Your operating system is corrupted in worst possible way. Best thing for you to do right now is to hook up your hard drive as a slave in another working computer, take off of it and save the files you want, and then take the original drive and reload it using the restore disks that came with your computer. Then re install the files you saved.

When I power it on, the windows screen comes up as if to be starting but it never comes up it just keeps doing it over and over

Its looping. Basically, files needed to boot it into windows are missing or corrupt. Try the following in order:

On boot up, before windows loads, press F8 and boot intro safe mode. If this works, click on the hard drive icon and ask it to repair any faults (Right mouse click, Properties, tools, repair) and reboot. See if that works

If it does, as soon as possible, download a command line virus scanner such as DR WEB, store it on a usb drive or similar, reboot the computer using F8 and safe mode and run the virus scanner from the USB , just to check you have not got a virus.

If it fails to work, you have an issue that will require repairing the windows OS, for which you will need a windows CD. Boot from the CD ( a lOAD of guides on the internet on this) and at the point you get asked to install windows, let if find the existing windows installation and repair it.

Pc keeps rebooting intermittently while going into an application

Depends on the app. it sounds like a corrupt driver/file, or virus. Run virus scan and malware scan with free spybot:

Uninstall the driver or app. that crashes and reboot then reinstall it. Ditto for any others.

Random rebooting when connected to our wireless account

Possibly what you thought was a virus was actually early signs of this very instability. Back up everything you care about on that machine at once! Then run diagnostics (google some good download sites and do the downloads to a floppy or CD on the other machine). You are probably looking at buying a replacement (few eMachines are worth repairing)

Can be a lot of things but most common is a virus corrupted file or operating system. Reinstall the OS or take it to someone who can possibly isolate the offending file and replace it.

When i turn on the computer it doest work i dont get to go to the main screen its show windows loading files

This can be the product of a system files corruption, or possibly a virus that is causing your pc to reinstall itself (in a way at least) Although I haven't seen something like this in quite a while. When you boot up the PC try to get into safe mode by pressing F8 until you get the boot menu, if you can get into safe mode you should be ale to diagnose your problem or use something like system restore to attempt reverting the situation. You can also insert the original Windows CD and do a repair install, although you will need to reload your updates, this can have many benefits performance wise.
