Hey Everyone :thumbsup:.

I am running XP on a P2 800 mhz HP system. AV program was F-Secure, and I also had adAware's AE edition loaded.

The system had been bogging down so I made sure I had all updates, then ran F-secure, and everything was cool. After that, I ran adAware, which found several things, none marked as critical, though one was a worm of some kind as I recall. It required a reboot to finish and so I did that. Poof. It all SEEMS to be running normally (I am using my laptop to connect wirelessly through it via lyncsys right now), but the monitor is disfunctional now, and I am starting to have problems with the laptop - IE repeatedly closing at will after the HD in the desktop I can't see activates briefly. Very wierdly twice while trying to post this to the forum?? That is the worst ever.

Now, I realize the monitor might have coincidently died in that moment despite being new and having no problems beforehand.

I just don't believe that.

Any clues? Can a virus do this? Is there a way I can (safely) set up my lptop to access the desktop directly to do something constructive about fixing this problem? I kinda know some about computers, but not a lot, so would really appreciate some clues to run down.
