I ran a virus scanner (partially, not enough time for a whole one yet) and it caught a virus. I ran combofix and after running combofix McAfee kept giving me "potentially unwanted program" alerts that all looked like they were coming from a system restore point. I removed all that and still get this problem.
I sincerely doubt it is a virus or something. I kind of just clicked delete really fats last time but im pretty sure the "virus" was just Hijack this, beccause i had to redownload it and mcafee caught it again.
Iam on a gateway laptop. about 2 years old. amd turion64. radeon x200m graphics card.
Hard resets will make the problem go away for a couple hours, but sometimes when i do a hard reset it wont load windows. sometimes it wont even get to the windows loading screen (it just sits at the gateway screen). One time when it was stuck at the gateway screen i hit F2 to go to the settings things, and my laptop started making this vibrating noise like crazy.
I was thinking hard drive but I dont know much about computers. Any ideas?
