I updated my anti-virus programmes reguarly ever since and performed regular scans etc.
It was working like a dream
Until this afternoon.
While visting this page
[url=http://downloadbox.org/music/11534-neil-young-everybody-knows-this-is-nowhere.html]http://downloadbox.org/music/11534-neil-yo...is-nowhere.html[/url]and downloading the file in question, my computer went haywire.
It started kicking up a "You are infected" warning box at which point I noticed that somehow something had disabled my Macafee programme
I ran a scan and it found only 2 items, one of which it deleted and the other it quarantined.
I switched it off and went out
A couple of hours later however, when I returned and turned it back on, it first kicked in as far as my screensaver but would not allow me to open any programmes or connect to the net (neither by keyboard, mouse or task manager).
So I did a hard reset
This time it did allow me to open an IE window but just as it was cionnecting the screen went black and nothing....Another hard reboot and nothing - we get past the booting up page then it goes black.,
I tried opening in safe mode - it freezes up
and the keyboard shows no lights on it then too - as though it is cutting it out.
It won't do anything beyond the boot up page now.
