windows wont start

Post by nature7827 on Mon 25 Jul 2011, 4:35 am

First topic message reminder :

My dell laptop has severe issues. I am running windows 7 home premium. It turned off by itself so i turned it back on then it wouldnt let me past the windows starting screen. After several attempts to get it started it finally let me start it in safe mode with networking. The safe mode still runs very slowly and I cant seem to figure out what is wrong. Before it turned itself off I had downloaded some games the night before and it was working fine till the next morning when I found out it shut itself off. I uninstalled all the games I had downloaded with no luck. I ran a full scan on Malwarebytes Anti- Malware and it found nothing. I tried to run norton scan but I guess not all the features are available in safe mode. Can someone help me with this. For some reason it is not finding the restore points I have made so I cannot restore it.

I have not restore the files it let me back up. I do not know what infected my pc in the first place.
Before putting them back on your computer, you should scan them with your AV program first. I believe you can also scan them with SAS and MBAM.

Thanks for the recommended anti virus list. Should I have any other protection on here? .
You can keep SAS and MBAM on your computer, if you wish. Update them and run them regularly. Here are some other suggestions.

I suggest using WOT - Web of Trust. WOT is a free Internet security addon for your browser. It will keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites. WOT warns you before you interact with a risky website. It's easy and it's free.
