It really isn't necessary to shut off your pc at night to keep virii out, as long as you have a good running antivirus on it. If you really want to keep things from infecting you at night, then you can simply disable your ethernet port before you go to bed.

    A lot of misspelling hard to fully understand?
    What do you mean disable .... port before going to bed?

    Depending on which version of windows you are working with, right click on the network connections icon in the toolbar and click on Disable to shut it down, thus preventing any network traffic, or click Enable to restart the connection. And I think you need to get your spell checker looked at, there are no mispelled words above...only two words the checker doesn't know.

Network card disappeared overnite


Before adding any ethernet card, try to restore your system by using system restore option available with windows to a date on which your system was perfectly working. If the your system works fine after that, then it is quite likely to have your system infected by malicious software or anti virus. Scan your system for virus. If the ethernet is not working then add a new card after disabling the on-board network card in the CMOS setup.

My pc is infected by best malware protection.i cannot access my programs.how do i get rid of it/


Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware(MBAM) from here.
Download Spybot Search & Destroy from here.
Install, update, and run full scans using both MBAM and Spybot.
Once they are finished scanning you can review the results and have the software remove the infections.
Once the infections are removed I would recommend rebooting the computer then running the scans a second time.

If you are not able to download and install these two pieces of software on your infected computer then you may need to download them to a different computer then transfer to the infected computer via USB Flash drive or CD, etc.

After beeps 3 times my desktop will turn off. and show light no 3 & 4


This could be due to many reasons.
1.DUE TO VIRUS INFECTION. Scan your pc for virus infection by running full system scan through your antivirus.Also update your antivirus.
2. DUE to irregulated power supply, your processor temperature can change abruptly,which can lead to the problem u have described. U can check the processor temp. through BIOS.
3.Finally check and re-install your window drivers.

Do I need windows xp disc to reinstall?


To format your hard-drive then re-install Windows? Yes, you would need one.

If you're attempting to rid yourself of a virus, you can definitely attempt a system restore. However, most modern viruses are smart, and the first thing they will do is integrate themselves into the system restore files. If however you have a system-restore disk (CD-ROM) which came with the computer, those will obviously not be infected (nor will they be infected) and can be used to restore the system to the state it was in when you first turned it on.

Let me know if I can help you further.

There's a strong possibility that this is a virus, unfortunately. The LSASS process manages user logins, and as such is a common target for infections on PCs running various versions of Windows.You probably have a virius that wasn't detected by your antivirus. Verifay you installed all Microsoft critical updates. Good luck!
