My 504 got a virus and HD crashed. Should I just get a new HD installed? Who is best to do this? I am not so happy with local computer "experts" so far. Lots of $$ and no good fixes. Ripped off


Its not usual for a virus to cause the heads to crash. Its worth trying the drive in another PC especially if you need to get at the data. If you instal a new HD you will need all the original software disks to be able to set up the machine. That is unless you have a usable backup from something like acronis. If you think there is a virus on the HD then it may also be on your restore points and any backup you have ..these will need cleaning..restore points by deleting them, any backup will require you to use something like malwarebytes, spybot etc...
This machine is quite old now you may want to think about replacing it....rather than fit an new hdd.

Atomic Alarm Clock (Program) Crashes Explorer.exe


You may have picked up a virus with this download. Scan your computer with an anti-virus program (AVG has a good free version of it's program). and hope it finds something to eliminate. That's one of the pitfalls of downloading free programs from the internet. Download the AVG program from MajorGeeks.com. I've never been burned with any of their downloads.

My computer (HP Pavilion Entertainment laptop) keeps giving me a blue screen saying it is "crash dumping". This happens mainly when I try and download something. It won't allow me to download any...


This could be caused by a corrupted operating system, a virus or a faulty memory card. You may first try to restore your computer to a date when you think it last allowed you to download something. See if it works.

To run system restore, go to start>all programs>accessories>system restore.

My computer is still crashing/freezing


It may be because of an y virus or trogans in your pc. Just format your c drive and reload the operating system. And before accessing other drives and internet install any antivirus softwares and update it immediately when connected to net.

Cannot download anything


XP

Use system restore to a restore point before your computer crashed. AVG is one of the best antivirus programs out there. I even recommend it.

If your are using Vista, insert the DVD and boot from the CD/DVD. When you get to the install page select the repair your computer option.
From the options select System Restore.

On a personal tip:

I am currently using BitDefender Tolal Security and I am recommending this one also.
If you have formatted your harddrive, then you are SOL!!!

My computer has a virus I can't remove


Try and boot into windows safe mode by pressing the F8 key before windows loads and then try running the browser and check if it crashes. Perform the same process by scanning with an anti virus and see what happens. You might have two problems, either the RAM the actual memory is bust or something in the OS has gone really wrong and got the OS unstable. Try the safe mode test to confirm.

We are having problems trying to crash our cumputer. The reason is children had downloaded some viruses and we have already did a back up of all good files needed. Now we need to crash it and reinstall...


Why in the world are you trying to crash your computer??? Just download a virus utility, such as Trend Micro or McAffee, and let it deal with the virus. If you are having problems logging in, restart your computer, and after it goes through the BIOS screens, before it brings up the screen that says "Windows XP" with the little progress bar, press F8. Select safe mode with Networking, wait for it to go though all of the MULTIDISK screens, and then download the virus utility. If this doesn't help, please report back and elaborate on everything. What computer you have, what you mean by "crash it" (reformat???), what drivers you need to reinstall... etc...
