Hi, while starting my pc a message displayed that cannot find the script file c/windows/system 32/rahul's virus protection vbe


Let it be a lesson how not to run computer without protection, your computer is infected with rahul malware/virus...

Please follow this advice:

1. switch computer off
2. boot computer in safe mode (tapping f8 during boot up will get you there) as an administrator with network connection
3. go to this site and run they free online scanner:

http://www.eset.com/online-scanner

4. still in safe mode download and install ccleaner
5. run ccleaner, as last run registry ccleaner
6. reboot computer as "normal"
7. do yourself a favour and buy nod32 antivirus, install it and allow it to protect you...
8. download from Microsoft they free Malicious Software Removal Tool and run it as well

If above did not remove all traces of rahul, please follow that advice for manual removal:

1. click on any folder on the desktop
2. select any folder and click "tools" or "properties", you did not stated which windows you run, cannot provide exact instructions
3. select "folder options"
4 select "view"
5. select "hidden files and folders"
6. tick "show hidden files and folders"
7. remove tick from "hide extensions of known file types"
8. remove tick from "hide protected operating system files"
9. search for any file with "*rahul*.*" in title (that includes file mentioned by you in the problem question)
10. delete these files, if files "refuse" deletion, click on they properties, one by one, unselect tick from "read only", click "apply" and then delete
11. remove file "autorun.inf"
12. re-boot with full shut down in safe mode (step 1 and 2 of first part) and run ccleaner again including as last registry ccleaner

Hope this will solve your problem, and buy this antivirus... If problem still persist, do not hesitate to call me back on this thread, if succesfull please leave note.

HP DESK TOP M733ON WILL NOT BOOT, WOULD NOT BOOT BEFORE NEW HARD DRIVE OR AFTER NEW HARD DRIVE


That's because "not booting" only relates to the hard drive after you have eliminated the power cord, power supply, motherboard, memory and CPU of the computer. Eliminate those 5 things and in the process you will have found your answer.

My computer wont start


Does it have power coming in to your CPU? If none try to check the fuse at the back of the cPU on the power supply side.

PC SHUTS DOWN ON ITS OWN


Could be a few different possibilities-
Power Supply failing
Overheating Issue
Virus-

first thing i would do is to try booting the computer up into safe mode with networking. to do this:

Shut off your computer and turn it back on- immediately start pressing the F8 key repeatidly until you get an advance boot menu- then go to safe mode with networking and press enter on your keyboard- See if Windows operates normally while in safe mode- If so then issue is probably a Virus.

got to have a new cd-rom drive mate, most practical approach.

other options are network boot (done in offices with many computers), USB boot (if your BIOS supports it & you need to have a USB device with the bootable image of the system disk), etc.
