CLEANING COMPUTER OF TROJANS, SPYWARE AND VIRUSES
ALL THE FOLLOWING SOFTWARE IN THIS GUIDE IS FREE

STEP 1. Clear the system restore points (if you don’t want to do this move onto the next step but be aware viruses can infect system restores and can come back or still cause problems):
• Click Start >> Run - type SYSDM.CPL & press Enter
• Select the System Restore Tab
• Tick on the checkbox - "Turn off System Restore on all drives"
• Click Apply
• Then untick the same checkbox & click OK
• This deletes ALL restore points that had the infection and creates a clean one

STEP 2 Proceed to try these spyware cleaners and rootkit finders in safe mode and full system scans (To get into safe mode reset the pc then keep pressing F8 until a menu appears in which you can select safe mode some computers use F5, F6 or F7 to get the menu up).

so your pc was working fine not long ago, did you install any software? alter any settings on your pc?

run checkdisk on your hard drive or drives. Then download memtest and run that for a few hours, and prime95.
