My laptop (Compaq Presario V5000) is having some sort of malfunction!

I think I must've gotten some viruses and all sorts of other stuff a few days ago. I have been trying to clean it up but it has been very very very slow. I finally downloaded Bit Defender, so I will try to use it.

However, now I am getting this warning when I startup the laptop:

Your system could become unstable
A potential problem has been detected and Windows has been shutdown buggy application to prevent damage to your computer.
****WXYZ.SYS - Address F73120AE base at C00000, DateStamp 36b072A3
Kernal Debugger Using: COM2 (Port 0x28f, Baud rate 192000)

Also, I shutdown my laptop improperly and so now my desktop is gone, so I am trying to use the Active Desktop Recovery, but it is not working!

HELP ME PLEASE! :thumbsup:

Hello flipeng and welcome to BC :flowers:

I see that you have also posted in the Infected forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/135283/a-disk-read-error-occurred/ Frequently, what seems like system problems might actually be malware problems. So, first let's get you disinfected in the other forum and see if that takes care of the problem you discuss here. If you are still having problems, you can come back to this thread.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. If you need it reopened after finishing in the Infected forum, please send a PM to a moderator.
