I was working along fine when I tried to open my picture-editing software....
The software would not open, and then, all of a sudden, my Alt+Tab wasn't working either. The only way I would switch programs/windows was to minimize everything and then maximize what I window I wanted.
So, I decided to reboot.
OMG! BSOD. I can't even F8!
As soon as it comes up, I get a BSOD w/the HP logo in the middle and three F options, none of which are operable.
The BSOD comes on immediately when I reboot, and the computer is dead from there out.
What in the world has happened? I have AVG running, Spybot, Ad-aware, etc. etc. etc. on my machine. Could a virus have gotten by all of these?
This morning my 8YO downloaded a game off Cartoon Network, and it wouldn't work....do you think that website had a virus in it???
How can I get out of this BSOD if I can't get the computer to work at all??
