I've had major problems don't know where to start? I talked with Gateway about my pc, restarting for no apparent reason on me when it is in use? .(I had the same issues as Beedab had with his topic) GW suggested maybe my fan wasn't working and check for electrostatic. Those two things checked out o.k. At microsoft support, all my problems sounds like I am infected with a major pain of a virus.
I started to scan with everything on my pc, with Avira, TR/Joke.Vixenish.A came up, quarantined and deleted. I reset my pc, because it froze, it came back on running something called a NTFS, CHK DSK showed recovering orphaned files, it went through three stages of checks, than windows started. However; I am still having problems, my PC has yet to restart by itself since than but, my pc is extremly slow, and at support.microsoft, I have tried to run their Malware Removal tool, and than Onecare, I CAN'T GET ANY FILES TO DOWNLOAD MORE THAN 20%! I think I'm still infected, I tried to open up Hijackthis but, a window popped up and said, "For some reason your system denied write acces to the Hosts file. If any hijacked domains are in this file, Hijackthis may NOT be able to fix this."
Can somebody please help fix my pc, I know very little about pcs. Thanks
