Just got a virus I think on my machine, everything slowed down till I had to turn it off at the back, it came back up and I tried to use my AVG virus protector to do a scan but it wouldn't open the test centre so I did a spybot check and adware and they worked then tried the one for shredder to check for trojans and it wouldn't open that up, so I tried rebooting it, for ages I couldn't get back on, tried safe mode and it would go to the blur screen and say windows is loading or starting, one of them and wouldn't go any further, it normally says welcome doesn't it. anyway after a while of trying, I managed to get on in safe mode but still can't run my avg or get online, can you get online in safe mode by the way.
Oh I also tried to use system restore and yes you guessed it , it didn't do anything on tht either, you click on it but nothing comes up, almost like the virus is stopping me anyway of getting rid of it.
I have tried go into safe mode networking and it goes to the blue screen for me to choose user or administrator, but then after my choice just goes to a black screen with safe mode in the corners but doesn't load anything else.
have tried going into safe mode dot promt and putting in c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
all it did was move down and say
c:\Documents and Settings\administrator\ again
I also can't use my recovery disc My reload windows disc doesn't work for a start as I had to pay for it from Time when I bought the machine and it went ages ago did my computer like this and I tried the reload disc then and it never worked , its a Time Mirage computer and I managed, forgot how to solve it and got my machine back, I think it kept crashing and I used anticrash and its worked fine from then.
It stops me opening up certain programs, included sadly hijackthis and cw shredder, yet I can open spybot and adware fine
Also a strange thing happened I got on in safe mode and shut down as normal, then starting it up without safe mode and it went on and starting windows, I couldn't get internet explorer to work but did get firefox to get up, it was really slow and didn't load my home page but google seemed to come up and I put in housecall and it came up with their site link only wouldn't go to the site, just had an error page, that is very strange cause obviously the internet connection was working but wouldn't let me go to any other site but google. How could a virus do that?
Does anyone have any more ideas?
