Computer shuts down

Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:02 pm

My pc reboots and then restarts. as soon as i have my full screen up it reboots again. It just keeps repeating itself. I did start it in safe mode and was able to open my Mocrosoft office apps as well as run my virus program.

Bill:

Sounds like you have a boot sector virus. You need to be able to access a bootable anitvirus cdrom so it can scan your harddrive. BtDt more times than I care to remember. Very common problem for those who do a fair amount of surfing or click the wrong link.

Rudi, I was able to run my antivirus and it cleared out a about 80 tracking cookies and one trojan virus, but I can't think of that virus name at the moment. Still nothing.

The last one I had to deal with on my Vista machine was the RI or RL family of viruses. RIKill or RLKill was the fix. I just removed it from my desktop. Will look in the trash in the morning. I am on a different puter at the moment.
