Save all your important files in a CD or DVD and reformat the drive. Once formatted and installed with fresh OS, install an antivirus program and get the latest update. Copy back your important files one at a time making sure these are subjected to the antivirus program. If the virus is difficult to remove, wait at least two weeks for new antivirus updates to be made and try removing the virus in the files once again.

When booting, you should see if your RAM size is normal. If it's something low, such as 32mb, you should replace it, or try a system format. You could use an Antivirus, such as AVG Free, to scan your computer for viruses that might have infected it.

If your computer has been severely damaged by viruses, i would consult you to do a complete cleanup of your storage devices connected to it. A clean instalation of an operating system would ensure that your computer is virus free.

If the above do not work, or you are not experienced with computers, you should hire a technician to assist you.

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem...


You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,

Hello, I am experienceing difficulties with my PC. I can't access to any folders and cant open the start menu.


You might have a Virus. In the case of a Virus infection I would most likely disconnect the Hard drive from the machine, scan it on another machine ( using AVG7 + AVGAS = AVG Antivirus and AVG Anti Spyware Scan) remembering to turn off system restore while scanning on the drive.

If you have successfully found and removed the virus infection, remember to delete your system volume information and recycler folder on the drive. virus files tend to infect these folders.

When you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a Windows repair; to fix the issues that the virus has caused OR use a registry repair tool to repair registry items. Another option would be to create a new user name. The settings in that new accound should be working fine and you should be able to access the start menu and your folders again.
