Virus: PC keeps rebooting at startup screen!

My pc keeps rebooting at the startup screen. I think it is a virus. I cannot reboot in safe mode, won't let me disable automatic restart, I can't go to the last known good configuration. I get this error: IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

STOP: 0x0000000A (0x0000000, 0x0000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804F9D36)

I can get into the command prompt though, but a chkdsk says there are some unremovable problems. Anyone?

    I need to know how to navigate the command prompt because the virus has likely changed some important file and making it so it keeps rebooting, if anyone knows how to do this please help!

    I too have this problem and I was able to hit f8 and choose "debug modus" and my computer works fine. But I still get the Blue Screen with this error code 0x804f9d36 if use any other mode! Another point was that I presume a virus must have hidden my other partition and I was able to use UBUNTU boot disk to enable it. anyone have any idea how I could use the Windows XP in normal mode? Malwarebytes prog found no malwares!

The virus has stuffed your file system it also stuffs the boot sector I have same trouble at this time. I first run bootfix from dos prompt and this got me a bootable drive ( first time). Second time it got same non recoverable file problems, time to give it the low level format.
This virus has me stumped, when you are aware of it, it has already stopped your system from functioning but you do not know it until you restart your computer, anti virus cannot work unless file system works, the drive that contains it I have put aside in hope of restoring files and tracking the virus down, I know it actively protects itself from scans by attacking my anti virus program rendering the firewall useless and stops the program altogether.
hope you have more luck than me, and the virus writer rots in hell.

Viglen easynote laptop constantly rebooting


This could be due to the system overheating. Is it running hot?
Could be a virus, do you have an antivirus program? If so try booting the system to safe mode (Press F8 repeatedly on startup and choose safe mode at the options screen) and run the antivirus software. If it is a virus the antivirus should get rid of it.
If it's not a virus and it is a system fault, I would be inclined to return it to the seller.

Windows xp keeps rebooting


Please press F8 several times during startup. When you get screen asking you to choose what you want to do please choose Safe Mode. Then you need to get to System Restore console you do this by going. Start----> All Programs-----> Accessories---->System Tools-----> Sytem Restore Choose the date when your PC was last working properly and click Next Next Yes. This should restore your Computer to previous state. Good Luck

Vista protiction 2010 keeps shutting my pc internet off wanting me to buy it


It sounds like you have a virus. To be specific, "Vista Protection 2010" sounds suspiciously like a class of viruses called "rogue AV", which lock down your system and harass you into giving them your credit card number. Often, once you do, the program will not stop doing what it does. They will tell you your computer is full of viruses and stop you from running programs.

To get rid of it, boot into safe mode by rebooting your PC and holding down F8 as soon as it starts to boot. Select safe mode (or safe mode with networking). Disable the virus starting up with the computer:
  1. Hold down windows+R
  2. Type "msconfig" and press enter
  3. Select the startup tab
  4. Look for entries with truly nonsensical names like geiuwyzi.exe and 80221919. Also look for "av.exe" and anything with the same name as the virus. Disable each one using the checkbox beside it.
  5. Reboot your computer. The virus should not be visible.
  6. Run at least one antivirus program. I personally recommend MalwareBytes and ClamAV (you don't want to know how many of these I see where the poor user has relied upon AVG or Avast). Run a full scan - as the virus is not currently running, a quick scan may not detect it.
That should do you.

Keeps on rebooting at startup


It's either you have a corrupted system boot file on the hard drive or infected with some virus. Try to verify that the PC will not reboot itself in BIOS. If so, memory is most likely the cause.
Burn a CD "HDD Regenerator 1.51" and boot from it, scan all the hard drive and it will attempt to recover all the bad sectors.
If HDD Regenerator finds nothing, then it's very likely Virus related. Take the harddisk out, connect it via external case and Scan with Antivirus on another system. If nothing found, backup your data and rebuild your PC (Reinstall Windows)

I have an hp laptop which has a trojan virus and will no alow me to do anything. Do i have to pess alt F10 to start reboot as i do on my sons acer


hopefully you have an anti virus/spyware programme installed, if so keep pressing F8 on boot up to get you into safe mode, this will not allow the trojan to run.

When you get the list on screen choose safe mode, then when windows starts, choose the administrator account, go straight to my computer>properties>system restore tab, and turn off system restore.

Run your anti virus programme and then when the trojan is found and then reboot pc, then turn system restore back on.
