Hi Guys

I hope someone is able to give me an answer to my problem. (I have a Dell Dimension 8400 with Win XP on it)

I recently had a virus called "System32like!generic" it was followed by "Nuwar B" (my PC was bleeping on start and it was taking about 10mins to get the PC on). The first system 32... seemed to stop my anti-virus and spyware software from running (it would freeze during the scan).

At that time I had the following protection:-

*Windows Defender
*Ad Aware 2008 (free version)
*PC Guard

Anyway, I decided to use the option on Dell PC's... which was to use the built in system restore (which took it back to factory settings). Basically, it was as it was when I got 4 years ago.

Now... I have reinstalled all the about software.... all my scans are clean, but I am still getting the bleeping computer upon start?

Any suggestions

Try running the Dell hardware diagnostics.
