You can try this: It may be a corrupt windows indtallation, boot the XP CD and select Install Windows, Choose the "Repair" option in subsequent screen. May take a while, and you need to activate it again, but it usually fixes the problem for me.

If that doesnt work, backup all your data, then do a fresh new xp installation.

I have virus in my computer,its so slow how can i take out my virus from my Computer


There are a couple ways. Try downloading a free virus protection software program like AVG or avast!. They only provide virus protection, but they also clean up your PC. If your computer is too far gone, you may need to take it into a tech store and get your Hard Drive wiped clean.

Until this morning, my screen has worked fine, but today I booted up the computer and the resolution has gone super strange. No matter what I try it won't go back to how it was. Any ideas?


Looks like the graphic driver setting has gone crazy. The simple solution is - update / re-install your ATI or NVidia graphic driver and things will return back to normal.

Also do a virus scan, just in case to see if any malware or virus has seiged your system.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

Recover from viral damage to IE, System Restore etc


First, the external drive. Sounds like the drive letter that is trying to be assigned to the external drive is already taken by something else. To resolve this, right click on My Computer and go to Manage. On the list, you will see disk management. You should see your external drive on the list to the right. Right click on the external drive and select Change Drive Letter. Change the drive letter to a letter that is not already being used by another device.

Second, if you are certain that the virus is completely removed, then it is possible to uninstall and reinstall IE, just make sure to download the install from Microsoft to your PC first before uninstalling. The install for IE 7 can be found here.

On the other hand, if you are not certain, then reformatting and reinstalling is not a bad idea at all. Not only will this most likely solve your problem, but it cleans up a lot of gunk on the PC as well. The only problem I see is if the virus is still infecting some of the files that you are going to restore. Just make sure you've ran a full scan on everything before proceeding.

Hope this helps!!

Restting a desktop due to virus or worm


get rid of Macafee, it wont help

restore to the earliest point you can, will minimize the spread of the virus then

use an online scanner like http://www.pandasoftware.com/ActiveScan/
and install
AVG free http://free.grisoft.com
Avast free http://www.avast.com or
FProt
or another av system that works,
Macafee and Norton are definitely counterindicated

system restore should be reset to the maximum disk space allowable, the tweaks espoused by many, of reducing disk space for system restore causes problems like this.
resetting the restore size will not magically replace missing system restore points, they are gone, but will give you more days worth of repair time in future, it will happen again.

Computer Acting Crazy


Hello, i have had this problem with my dell, and believe it or not, it is probably your mcafee. Your mcafee could be using most of your processor and your ram, i suggest to reinstall mcafee, look at some upgrades for ram (Random Acess Memory), or buy a new anti virus/anti spyware. Such as eset,norton,zone alarm, and many others.I hope that this helped you!

MOUSE IS ACTING CRAZY


It could very well be a bug of some sort. Do you have any antivirus on your system? If not may I suggest Grisoft AVG, they have a free version, but its only antivirus. You can try Search and Destroy for spyware. But I would recommend getting and running Combo Fix first. These are all free softwares, and I hope they help solve your problem
