Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Comp has a virus so now when comp is started it is bypassing the removable drives and going straight to the hard drive, windows starts and stays that it is unable to connect all drivers and then it turns off, so rebooting with a disk will not work because it will not read the drives first.

Are you getting that message from Windws scan? If it is then, that is a fake hard drive analysis and optimization program so you need to remove it from your computer. by following these steps: If you're not familiar in dealing with the registry, please install malwarebytes from http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Manual Removal:
1. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del on keyboard to stop process associated to "Windows Scan". When Windows Task Manager opens, go to Processes Tab and find and end the following process:
(random characters).exe

2. You need to update your installed antivirus application to have the latest database.
3. Thoroughly scan the computer and any detected threats must be removed. If removal is prohibited, it is best to quarantine the infected item. Manually locating and deleting of malicious files should also be performed. Please see files below that are related to Windows Scan Virus.
4. Registry entries created by Windows Scan must also be remove from the Windows system. Please refer below for entries associated to the rogue program. [how to edit registry]
5. Exit registry editor.
6. Get rid of Windows Scan start-up entry by going to Start > Run, type msconfig on the "Open" dialog box. A windows containing System Configuration Utility will be launched. Go to Startup tab and uncheck the following Start-up item(s):
(random characters).exe

You'll need to start your computer in "safe-mode". Your other option is to make a bootable usb drive with Unetbootin. You'll need to use a different computer for this. This will enable you to save your files and then reinstall a new operating system (xp, vista or 7).

It could be that the drive was infected by a virus. The Virus dumps an file with the name autorun.inf onto the drive and everytime u plug the drive into a pc - it wants to run the virus that autorun points to.

Try something - unplug the hard drive, then press the SHIFT key and while holding it, plug in your hard drive. DONT let go of the shift key until the drive has been detected (around 10 seconds should be find) then let go of the shift key - if the drive shows up under "my computer" DONT double click on it to open it as that will jsut run the virus again ... instead .. RIGHT click on the driver and choose explore. If you can see the drive this time - it is a virus and the best option is to remove the virus or format the drive - post another question if this does not work.

Good luck

Windows did not start successfully start uo loop


this happens sometimes due to a virus that gets on the machine. you will need to remove the virus and then start up the computer.

To remove the virus you will need to plug the hard drive into another computer then run a virus scan on that drive.

Or you can reformat the hard drive and put windows back on it. this solution you will lose everything

How can I fix Fdc failure when I switch on my Dell L866r desktop computer. I ask somebody to re booth my comp. after it was done this problem occur. Also how can I improve performance of my comp. Too slow.


hello, FDC error ( FDC Failure) is usually either improper floppy drive setup - check cablesare connected properly on the motherboard and and in to the floppy drive-inserted all the way in, not in reverse. insure that power cable in connected properly.
Bad controller on motherboard: not much you can do with that but go in BIOS and disable the floppy controller and make sure first boot device is set to hard drive or cd/dvd drive instead of floppy.

As far as performance is concerned your system only has 128 MB ram, i would suggest adding some more. Try crucial.com or ebay for good price should about 15$ 20$ for another 256mb or so.
Go tosystem tools and run disk defragger tool to defrag your hard drive.
download free tool called "tune Xp" and use defrag boot files.
go to start run and type in "msconfig", hit enter
in new open windows click on "startup" tab and uncheck all the application that you don't use everytime your computer starts.
NOTE: Make sure not to uncheck any anti-virus/spyware/firewall software you may have installed.
don't worry you are not deleting anything but just removing things from startup to speed up startup process.
system will require reboot at the end.

i hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
good luck

When I power on the LAPTOP with power cord, I am unable to run any of PC applications including simple application such as google talk service or windows mediaplayer. The Laptop becomes dead.


it seems you have a virus. Run your anti-virus and anti spyware
if still dont find anything wrong, go to start, run, Msconfig, then go to start up, disable anything recently added or all, then go to services, click hide microsoft services.. then disable all.. then go to the Boot.ini and click safe boot/with network restart your computer in safemode.. see if the applications run... They do then restart comp and get out of safe mode ..
Start all you known services..(anti-virus, anti0spyware) and see which one is actually preventing it.

if that also fails you might need to reinstall your os by formatting your drive.
In order to backup your important data, you`ll need do the following.

Take out your hard drive and install it as a slave drive in another computer (possibly a friends if you don`t have access to another system), then backup your data and replace the drive into your system. Reformat and reinstall from scratch.


Hope this information helps you
Thank you

I have a virus I cannot remove from my hard drive


If you can go to Avira.com and download there repair disk,you can put it on a disk or flash drive, it will run before windows starts(dos), you force the lap to boot from the disk. If this is a virus Avira will kill it.
Avira is the 2nd top anti-virus on planet, there free edition is better
than AVG, Avg is 21 out of the top 20 anti-virus.

Yes, if you reinstall windows and delete the drive,install to (C) new raw and format, it will be gone, but a lot of work when you don't need to.

Cannot launch my Norton 360 to perform scan


Boot in safe mode and try to run virus software.
If you can remove hard drive? find another hard drive that has a system with virus software, and make your drive the secondary drive and run virus software.
Usually your virus cd boots or lets you make a boot floppy, when booted run virus software.
Have a nice day
