I desperately need help! My laptop (Compaq Presario) got infected with some sort of virus earlier this week. It was giving me slow to no internet connection and I was not able to run some programs, constantly kept freezing. I used Ad-aware and Trojan32 virus kept coming up. I was able to download Bit Defender but I am having a hard time running a scan, it freezes up on me! Today I tried to run it thru safe mode, when I hit the F8 key it took me to a black screen and on the upper left hand corner it states:
A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
When I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, it goes to the Compaq screen then back to the disk read error screen!
I tried unplugging it, removing the battery, and waiting a few minutes but it still keeps reverting to the same thing!
