Try to use other anti-virus programs, there maybe viruses that your previous cleaner can't detect. If that wont solve your problem it is best to reformat your pc then install a new operating system, just be sure to backup your data first.

Whenever I try to open a certain link it freezes my computer. Another link is my IM - freezes too and have to reboot. What can I do to fix the problem?


If you are getting this problem then before accessing the internet you turn your firewall protection off so that it allows you to access the other pages.
If your problem is not solved then scan your PC with a good and updated anti virus so that if there is a virus problem it will be solved.
And then your problem will be fixed.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

PC locked up.


reboot in to safe mode (follow these steps)
1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start "windows with networking", and then press ENTER.

See if your DSL line works in that mode. If it does, then we simply need to clean up your windows startup applications.

Who is your DSL provider?

My computer freezes and/or shuts down whenever it wants to.


Sounds like you may have a virus, or your hard drive is failing? Get Combofix, SPFix Hijackthis and run them... in that order, work through them. If this doesn't help, well before actually scan your hard drive for errors, Defragment, run Disk Cleanup. Check you have lots of hard drive space too. More than 15% of total.
Using Start>>Run>> Msconfig go to startup tab and disable all and then reboot re-enable one by one rebooting in between & see if that helps.

Got a virus from ip torrents I think. Computer just went blue screen flickered a lot like a strobe then went dead cant reboot past first line of dos and dont want to have to restore it if info is still...


If you have access to a second computer you can try installing the hard drive on it as a slave and then do a full virus scan. After this completes and hopefully removes all the virus's you might be able to put the drive back into the original computer and do a windows repair from the windows XP CD. If not then you would need to transfer the data off the old drive and reinstall windows from Scratch. I would recommend doing it that way if possible as it gives a better chance of not being reinfected by something on the drive.

Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

Computer keeps rebooting every 30 seconds. Whats Wrong?


Your computer could be infected. Press F8 a couple of times when you first turn on your computer when you see the HP logo. You will get whats called an advanced startup menu. Choose Last Known Good Configuration. If windows loads successfully, scan your computer with Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware programs to remove infections. If windows does not load, do the above again but this time choose Disable Automatic Restart. By choosing Disable Automatic Restart the system will give you a blue screen. Write down that information from the blue screen and post it back on here.

I have an acer travelmate 252LC_DT which whenever I start doesn't load the operating system and just displays a blank screen. Prior to this the Micro-antivirus 2009 virus was located on the laptop and I...


ok my friend as you said the operating system is not loading any more so that means we are having some corrupt files that makes the windows to fail while trying to boot up.

and since you cannot even log in to the computer even in safe mode that means you have only two options.

first is to try a repair (most of the computers use F12 key to get to the repair counsel).
second reinstalling windows.

so try the first one if it doesn't work then reinstalling windows will be the last thing to do.

if you need and further help please let me know

cheers

My computer is rebooting over an over ....dont have time to do anything....now i open my computer on safe ....mode what should i do??? i have window xp


If your computer fully loads Windows, than starts a restard process you are looking at having an annoying virus. Since there are several different viruses that can cause this problem, if this is the reason for the restarting, you would be best off loading Windows in safe mode (using the F8 key before Windows starts to load will give you a menu with options like SAFE MODE) and than trying to scan it for viruses.

If your computer doesn't actually load Windows, but restarts after the Windows loading screen, you could have a corrupt driver causing Windows to restart. If your computer were slow, you would see the error message, faster computers go through the error screen too fast. The best way to determine this would be to start in SAFE MODE and see if the same problem exists.

Let me know what happens after you start in SAFE MODE. 6 Pts Rate Answer

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610


try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
