Try holding down F8 when restarting pc. Choose safe mode and run your AntiVirus again. Make sure to empty any quarentine items.
Sometimes this finds a few more. Make sure to turn off system restore before scan and turn back on after.
If this doesn't work you may need to do a format and reinstall your operating system. There are also Hard drive viruses too. If you remember the name(s) look them up on internet for severity level.

    To Allelink, sounds like your computer is overheating. Most have this feature of shutting down before frying and causing expensive damage to cpu/motherboard. First replace or test your power supply. If comp starts up, quickly get into the bios and just watch the temp. seeing if it raises steadily. Pretty sure it shouldn't go above 80-93f, but check on line for your system to be sure of the correct operating temp.range. If you see its running hot then make sure your cpu heat sink fan is working.

    Hopefully from this your system will be back to normal or definitely narrow down the most likely causes. Good-Luck.

No virus checker catches them all, and frankly, Norton 360 is pretty weak. Try running AVG, which is downloadable and free.

System reboots


Dear sir,
I will request you to first change your Anti virus. I have personally used Norton, and I have found AVG free version detects and clean more viruses which Norton has not notified as threat. For getting back to your PC in normal stage you may windows Restore utility. It is very useful. you can find it in Start>Programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Please restore to a date when you think your PC was in good state.
Please rate me if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

HELP!!! Computer stopped working when anit-virus was installed?????


Assuming you are using windows xp. 1. Boot up into windows safe mode by pressing the "F8" key during boot process. 2. Choose "Safe Mode without networking" on the menu and after entering your desktop a pop-up will appear telling you that you are using windows safe mode, just press "OK" then uninstall Norton Anti-Virus. 3. Shut-down and/or reboot computer. Another alternative would be to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore. If you choose to do this, you still need to uninstall Norton Anti-Virus because a system restore will only fix just system files not programs that were installed. In other words, you will have a partial installation of Norton Anti-Virus in your computer. As to why this happened, could be a compatability issue with the use of Norton and some other program. Good luck.
