If you have a second pc please put a virus scanner on the second pc then remove the C drive with the infected files then place this on second pc please set the C drive to slave then cable it up then boot up second pc then run virus scanner program and wait for it hunt through the D dirve and this will get rid of the pesky virus's then use the second pc to do a scan disk to make sure it has not currupted any files.

then when all is clear then place the hard drive back into your main pc jupering it back to C or master then re-boot and all is well but if all is not place back into second pc and sdave your files out to second pc then redo windows this will be your only solution as you have had the hard disk effected you will need to re-format the disk please search on the web for this as you may need to print it out.

hope this works out for you

Troojan virus affected how to remove

You could use "System Restore" to revert to the time when your computer is still in good condition or pressing F8 while still booting up and choose "Last known good configuration" at the selection prompt. Then use your default anti-virus after the repair. You could try to use a bootable CD to scan your computer. This is the best way to remove virus because the virus is still in inactive state when you boot to a CD. When you are booting to a CD you must change the booting sequence in your BIOS. You can download and burn Hiren's bootable CD and use the NTFS DOS to CHKDSK your hard drive or use the built-in mini-Windows XP and invoke CHKDSK at its DOS prompt. Hiren also has an anti-virus software on its collection. You could also download and burn a known good bootable anti-virus such as Kaspersky, Dr. Web, Avira, AVG, etc. and scan your computer.

after you installed XP and explorer you should be able to connect to the internet and go to for a driver scan and update. if for some reason you cant then you can find the drivers you need on the MSI site and put them on a disk to load into your sons computer.
i have put together a few MSI boards and after loading XP, went right to MSI for the scan.

Computer is very slow I had a bad virus so then replaced hard drive with a new one but pc is still slow

Computer slow downs are possible at all times. The only thing required is that the problem should be found and fixed at the right time.

Cant reinstall the sound card driver of ecs elitegroup w341ui

The reformatting of the hard drive may not remove all elements of a virus, depends on the type. It may be able to hide in any case.
The best way to get rid of viruses on computers is to keep updated software which will scan all the time for viruses. If this is a Windows computer, going to safe mode and running the anti virus software will get rid of viruses. Another thing to remember is that the virus can get on to the computer hard drive again if you have any disks, cdroms or DVDs which were made when the virus was on it. Almost all viruses will copy itself to any media during infection. It is very important to have up to date software, whether or not you have to pay for it, and many are free.
Not a good idea to put your email on a site like this (any site for that matter).
I am not sure what you mother board is, but if it is "ALiveNF7G-HD720P M/board" with a Nvidia 7050 sound card.
Information you need when you go to the website:
The OS you are installing.
The Motherboard name and model number.
The exact name of the sound card and model number.

Here is a link, since you have not mentioned what your OS is, you can download what you need or email them, you may even be able to call.

Hope it all works out for you.

The best way is to take out your HDD and get thoroughly checked up in another PC which has a genuine Antivirus, including Root Kit and ability to scan bootsector for viruses(QuickHeal has one). After getting it disinfected put it back on your M/c and do a clean Install of the OS.,,,,hope this will help 'cos once you viruses in the bootsector, its damn difficut to get rid of it.......sodeep

I just finished my new build. when i power it up it goes through its boot series and gets to a point were it says media test failure, and under that it says exiting intel boot agent. In the bios, the hard...

I doubt it is a virus as you have not indicated doing anything that a virus could have been transmitted to your system. The blue screen of death at boot up time simply means the files that find your operating system are not working properly. Specifically, if you want to Google them they are NTLDR (NT Boot Loader), Boot.ini (tells the system the name and location of your system) NTDETECT.COM (inventories your hardware) and HAL.DLL also monitors hardware. If you could get those three files on a disk-NTLDR, Boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM, then it would boot. They are located in the C:\ drive of any computer with windows but you have to release the hidden files button thing to do is go to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at and research your error and those're not the only one this has happened to so there may be a fix in the knowledge base. Besides its good practice to use the Knowledge Base as you can find out about any answer on windows there..good luck. Please rate this solutionl.

HP Desktop PC, won't boot even under safe mode

if the system was able to enter the desktop and restarts...once possible cause is a virus...scan the pc via safemode or reinstall windows.

but if it didn't enter the OS desktop...cause might be the boot loader or MBR is damage..

worth a try:

Run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

BOOTCFG /rebuild

6. To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Help - no-one can fix my PC - no desktop, icons, task bar

Hi hiltona, the error" viamraid.sys" not found is located (Or was located) in, C:\Windows\System32\drivers. (It is the VIA RAID driver for win XP, 2000 & 2003). The VIA file is most likely just one of many files in windows that are corrupt, not to mention many of windows regestry files. It would be impossible to fix all these windows files & registry keys.
Can I suggest that you remove your hard disk drives & connect them into a friends PC if at all possible. One at a time. (First your C:\ drive than your D:\ drive).
If your drives are SATA's they will default as slave drives. If your drives are IDE you'll need to set drive's jumper to be seen as a slave drive. What you have to gain by doing this.
1. Hopefully the PC your placing your drive into will have a virus scanner running & up to date, which will clean the Trojans/viruses from your C:\ drive.
2. You'll be able to copy you're personal data to a CD or DVD if the PC has a CD/DVD writer in it. (See the list of folders you want to write to a CD writer below).
3. Your D:\ drive will be cleaned & you will not loose any data other than files that may have been infected.
4. Taking it to a repair shop will cost you $$ & most places do not back up your data. (Unless you pay for it)!
Pull the memory from your own system when you remove the hard disk drives. Removing the memory will clear any memory resident virus. Once your primary drive has been cleaned re-install it into your PC & incert your memory.
Install windows. (Fresh install is recommended & format because many windows system32 files will be trashed). Once windows is installed, register with MS & than update your system through windows update service. Download & install AGV for free from this link:
Run a full system scan. (Play it safe). Next is the list of folders you'll want to burn to a CD writer after your C:\ drive has been cleaned.
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Favorites
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Local Settings\Identities
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\My Documents
Data from any program you have installed.

Once windows has beed installed you can copy these back to your C:\ drive & over write the folder.

Good luck hiltona!
If you run into trouble just let me know.
