How dose virus harm proccessor ?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Hmm, very nice question, a straight layman answer will be NO, virus can't directly hard the hardware. Let me elaborate a bit, Virus cannot burn up Processor. Hardware design means a virus cannot damage hardware.
There is a term 'Overheat signaling' that does not involve software. If processor overheats, then processor automatically throttles back or shuts down - a hardware function completely independent of software. Signaling is not accessible by 'machine code' in a virus. Overheat protection and other hardware functions are implemented in hardware. 'Machine code' instructions (from virus or other software) cannot damage hardware if machine is properly constructed.

But Yes, a virus can change the machine code of your BIOS, because nearly all the Firmwares are now upgradeable, so a Virus Maker can think of it, but again this will not cause damage to your Processor, although your Machine will not run on the next boot. Actually the work you used "HARM" may has a very vast meaning, the way I am telling you, I guess you understand.
If you are still having any question, do ask me.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

My computer is restart only

hi phanindra,

As you told that your computer is restart only.
I know something about that.In my computer this problem is only create
when I shut down direct.Because it is due to some File are missing from the computer when shut down the computer direct.
  • my first advice is that don't shutdown your computer direct.
  • Second update your Anti virus because it also cause due to virus.
  • And third most important is change your computer window.

Can't log into my computer, says can't load my profile.

I am terribly sorry but if you cannot see the pics im afraid they MAY already be gone.

 that is a VERY VERY evil virus.

Boot the computer up into safe mode (push and hold F8 on boot and use the up and down arrows to choose the options (if there is text saying click here for advanced boot options use that to get into safe mode.) Try to login using the account labeled administrator(no password) . once there try to recover your files and account (using control panel). click on start and then run now write in 'msconfig' and click run again. Now choose the startup tab, and then click disable all. - NOW click on the services tab, and then click on hide all microsoft services, then disable all the services that are not mircosoft. Hit apply then hit okay, THEN reboot.  

This should disable the virus. If you cant find your files chances are they are gone. Im sorry

Cpu maxes out with nothing running then drops up & down

When you see this on a cpu there are a few causes most of which are just really annoying. This is software caused by a program or programs
and your hardware itself is fine. Normally any system will be at 0-2% cpu when you are not doing anything.

If you bring up task manager by hitting ctrl-alt-del then look at processes. Look at which is using the most cpu. It should be system idle or task manager. If you see something that is way up the for cpu then you can try stopping it by selecting it and then hit the end process button. If that is the culprit your system will instantly speed up. At the very worst you will cause your system to reboot so don't worry. If you do get the right one then do a search for the name to find out what it is. If it is a program uninstall or if it is a virus or malware then do a scan.

If it just started try to remember what you installed last. Then uninstall that. You may have to do this in safe mode (hit F8 on boot up until you see the menu and select safe mode) to get the computer to cooperate enough to let you do this.

Other causes can be anti-virus programs. If it just updated or you just installed this can be your problem. There are several out there that cause this exact problem and these are the well known good anti-virus programs. Again you need to uninstall the program. Download a new version if available or use a different one. We recommend one of the free ones like Avast home.

The third thing is usually spyware. These are sort of dumb computer viruses so they quite happily keep down loading more and more until you can have hundreds running at the same time and your cpu is maxed out. To get rid of these you need to scan your computer for both viruese or malware(spyware). If you do not have a antivirus program installed then I would be pretty sure this is the problem. There are several online scans that will scan and fix your pc. Housecall is one of these.

Pc freezing up

There is a strong chance that you got something nasty which keep connecting on the net when you
are using these apps.

I suggest an online scan with Kaspersky and a malware scan asap.

Pc barely running think its cpu

Hi, the system you have shouldnt take 10mins to loads, sounds more like spyware or viruses on your pc, i see pcs everyday running like old machines and its usually viruses are the problem or your running the new version of Norton antivirus alot of the time can slow your machine down that much, if you uninstall any virus checkers you have and download this.

You will probably be amazed at what this virus checker picks up on the pc...

Help with a system shut down?

Hi, does it let you get into windows then give you a 60sec countdown if it does, its a virus. its kinda easy to fix this one,
Once its into windows click start button, click run then type
shutdown -a (press enter)
this should stop the countdown
you need to download or install a new virus checker,
this one is good and lasts 30days free,
Remove viruses and should work fine..

Have a good christmas

Need to do a system restore but can't

Go to and run the scan. If it finds a virus then try to remove it. If it cannnot remove a virus it finds then call Microsoft and they will help you remove the virus. You have to run a virus scanner and determine what virus you have first though.

Help me

Chances are it's a virus. Otherwise, there could be an internal hardware problem, so it's best to have a technician look at it.

Also, it would be more helpful if you post more details about your machine.
