Hi,
if the computer starts and then shuts down, the problem could be a virus or a bad harddrive.
Power off the system and then restart , tap the F8 key couple of times as soon as the computer starts . Select safe mode with networking,check if the computer is able to start in safe mode or not . If the computer is not starting in safe mode aswell. its time to reformat the computer . Install windows on it again

Thanks
Proton

How to clean computer when has virus


Virus removal can be quite tough depending on which virus it is and how well it's established.

Disconnect your computer from the internet, power it up and keep pressing F8. It will show a black screen with white writing, select Start your computer in "Safe Mode" lots of white writing will come up on the screen, this is normal. It will eventually start up, but will look odd. This is also normal. In Safe Mode windows only starts programs needed to run the computer at is minimal amount. You will now be able to open up your anti virus and scan for viruses.

After, shut your computer down and start it up normally, run a scan again to make sure. then download Malware Bytes, install that and scan again.

If this doesn't work you may need to take it to a computer repair shop.

Hope it helps

I think i have a virus on my samsung netbook i have avg installed


Hi
If you have a virus,worm,trojan,etc on your computer.
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.

Hi ziaee f88...

You may still have a virus,worm,trojan,etc on your computer.
To remove a virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer...do it the EASY way...let someone else do it for you.
Start your computer, as the computer is starting keep tapping the F8 Key.
This will start the computer in the Safe Mode.
Once in the safe mode go to the following webage below and download,install, and run Microsoft Safety Scanner for FREE.
Once you run the Microsoft Safety Scanner (it may take quite a while depending on the size of your hard drive) it will remove all the virus's,trojans,worms,etc it finds, if it does not completely remove them all you will be given a chance to chat with a Microsoft Professional thru a pop open window and he will take control of your computer (with your permission) and finish removing all the rest of the virus's, trojans, or worms that are on your computer for FREE!! Can't beat FREE!!
Please take time to rate me four thumbs up

Greetings, i have a problem in my ACER ASPIRE netbook, where it suddenly started to work very slow and specially the sound where it is very slow and distorted for any media such as sound tracks and even...


This is not normal. I recommend running a virus scan (Malwarebytes is an excellent free scanner) to make sure it's not a virus slowing things down. If after the virus scanner runs/cleans things are still slow, it might be worth it to look into a clean-up utility, but beware, there are many viruses/crapware out there that claim to be a clean-up utility, so it's best to buy a clean-up utility from a store in CD form.
