So I've tried everything I can think of. I've scanned every forum I can find and followed every instruction as best I can. Problem is, half of the instruction is made under the assumption that you won't have a problem updating your virus scanners, or even running them in the first place. When I get error messages with installs, or scans, I can't follow those instructions.
But I've tried everything I know of.
I've removed just about everything from the startup list, I've used AVG V&S, AntiVir, Spybot, Spyware Blaster, Ad-aware, McAfee (what a waste) that Stinger thing, and countless other failed scans.
Right now I can't get the computer to shut off when I try to restart. I have to manually power it off. That is annoying, but it wasn't an issue before. It hangs up at the "Windows is shutting down" screen and that is it.
Plus when I do get something up and scanned I find a bunch of viruses and remove them, but the next scan will find the same ones, or new ones, and the next scanner will find something completely different.
I don't want to wipe and reload. There are just too many programs on here... what else can I do?
