  1. i went to power options and under UPS it says it UPS service is turned off. I'm guesing this is for laptops (not me) but on my other pc it doesn't have a model or manufacturer under details and the messed up computer does. It says the manufacturer is American Power Conversion. This is the only difference in power options.
  2. i did the panda scan... Incident Status Location Adware:Adware/Gator No disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\GStartup.lnk Adware:Adware/Gator No disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Lindsay Pitcher\Local Settings\Temp\fsg_tmp\ginst_001_1234_4201.exe
  3. Ok thanks for the tips. I would have used the recovery CD a long time ago but my sister doesn't value saving important disks so i can't use that option. Ill try a panda scan... i tried before but the pc wouldn't stay on long enough but it has stayed on all tonight which is a record. I tried booting norton before start up but it didn't find any viruses... something didn't work there and other programs won't install i.e. Ewido or Spybot.
  4. well i have never dealt with a virus that shuts off the pc like that and i cant keep it on long enough to fix the virus and things won't download correctly like ewido and spybot. I can't delete it from the running processes either because it says it is a critical windows process that cannot be stopped. I don't know what to do. I thought if the virus was shutting off the pc that it would at least say system shuting down or something but it's just like someone pulled the plug.
  5. So could this virus be responsible for my pc not being able to stay on for 10 minutes without shuting off?
  6. Ok... i did the test. It doesn't seem like any of this would explain the completely random shut down of the pc. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=A0UDNWHQXKQS6HU6
  7. ok thanks... yeah i think my problem will be keeping the pc running... it shuts off everytime i use it. I even opened it out and cleaned it and the fans are running fine and it's not the monitor or keyboard or anything.
  8. will do but run what scan? I use Ewido and Spybot on my pc but this is my sister's and it's so screwed up that it won't update ewido or spybot. It doesnt detect any servers and says socket error #10061 for spybot and will i click update on ewido it says cancel update right after i push the button but the goes back to start update. It's really weird
  9. i ran the whole barage of tests and i have the winlogon virus. The first thing it told me to do was to kill the running winlogon processes in task manager but i got a prompt that says this is a vital system file that cannot be deleted. What do i do?? Any help would be great.
  10. wasnt the keyboard. I noticed that when i turn on the monitor it almost immediately shuts down sometimes and whenever i open the disk drive (s) it also shuts down. I just doesnt seem to manage anything but the minimun usage
  11. i don't see any and it's a pretty new pc but i'll look--- actually i'll just put in a different keyboard.
  12. I have this presario that has had a bunch of problems and it just randomly shuts off which is a pain while trying to fix it. sometimes it does it after 1 minute of being on other times after 10 minutes. The fan works fine the pc is cool and i'm usually just opening 1 program or im on the internet. I start it back up fine everytime but it will just shut off again. Really strange. Please help
  13. now ewido keeps bringing up new viruses namely system32/Bloodhound.W32.EP and system32/WINiNET.dll.
  14. heres the other scan report... the panda didn't show anything but i forgot to save it. --------------------------------------------------------- ewido security suite - Scan report --------------------------------------------------------- + Created on: 9:13:48 PM, 6/21/2005 + Report-Checksum: CA08B4EC + Date of database: 6/21/2005 + Version of scan engine: v3.0 + Duration: 170 min + Scanned Files: 93049 + Speed: 9.07 Files/Second + Infected files: 115 + Removed files: 115 + Files put in quarantine: 115 + Files that could not b
