Unread postby aussiebushman » September 14th, 2009, 9:27 pm


I have run Malwarebytes, AVG free and sybot search, with a few infections having been found and destroyed, but the machine - HP Compaq NX5000 running XP Pro keeps rebooting without warning. The report file to Microsoft points me to Intel, but the download is "no longer available" Any help appreciated as this machine is a large part of my income-generation

Any help appreciated as this machine is a large part of my income-generation

I am sorry to inform you that the forum rules do not allow us to work on business-related computers, whether they be corporate, home business, those self employed or not for profit organizations.
In General, we do not help in cleaning business or corporate computers. There may be restrictions and modifications installed on such machines that could be damaged or altered by the actions we take to remove Malware. There may also be legal issues regarding any loss of business data that we do not wish to deal with.

The online anti-malware community primarily serves home users and is therefore not ideally suited to deal with situations that are best handled by a company's own IT department. All companies have their own set of policies and procedures for handling situations like this, which are beyond our sphere of knowledge. Therefore, as this computer has been identified as infected, you are strongly advised to immediately seek the assistance of your company's IT department so they may implement their own preferred method for handling this situation.

So I am sorry we won't be able to help you anymore, and accordingly topic will be closed.
