If you have bad malware/virus infection then the bast solution is to start in safe mode with networking (F8)
Turn off system restore(baddies can hide there)
Scan with a fully up to date Virus scanner( AVG Free/Microsoft Security suite) both free
Full scan with Malwarebytes anti-malware and reboot.
CC cleaner is also a great program for cleaning your system and managing your start up programs

Blue screen appears & keep restarting


It is possible that the malware is to blame, in which case a computer technician will need to sort it out.

I think it may be a bad memory module or loose memory module connection.

Take care!

Internet connection very slow in normal mode but fast in safe mode on win xp pro


I wouldn't think that your router is the problem. Perhaps there is a virus or malware that starts when you boot normally that is eating up your connection. I would advise that you download and run Malware bytes to see if you can get rid of any possible infections.

My computer virus protection found GRAY_Gen.MZ40K9 how do I get rid of it


Try my five easy steps (if the first option doesn't work).

Download and install Malware Bytes, it's a completely free virus scan utility that not only finds the viruses, but gets rid of them too.

1. Go to http://download.cnet.com/3001-20_4-10804572.html?spi=1368be730f27c08fc9f5bc828a1ed6e5
(If the virus is so bad that you are unable to do so, get it off another computer with internet access and save the setup to a flash drive).

2. Boot the infected computer into 'Safe Mode With Networking' by repeatedly tapping F8 while the computer is starting up.

3. After entering Safe Mode /w Networking, drag the setup file to the desktop from the flash drive and run the setup to install Malware Bytes

4. After Malware Bytes starts up, go to the 'Update' tab and click Check For Updates. (This is the reason for booting into Safe Mode With Networking, so you can connect to the internet to download the updates).

5. Go back to the 'Scanner' tab and choose 'Full Scan' and then it will ask which drive you want to scan, select your hard drive and let it go!

Good Luck :)
