I'm having a problem with my new Asus K60 laptop. I recently purchased it from Best Buy and it ran fine for about a week or two. Then out of no where it started freezing up whenever I would watch any embedded video online. I checked for malware ad-ware and viruses and thought I had the problem fixed, but came out with the same problem. I finally restored the laptop back to the way it was out of the box using the system restore thinking that my problem would be fixed, but still have the same problem. It also will not let me download any windows updates and after an hour of usage it won't even let me open up some programs. I am completely stumped and have no idea what to do. What do I need to do?

If you are not able to install windows updates, this means your computer contains a hijack somewhere.


My first suggestion is to run the following program to see if you've been infected.

Spybot Search & Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/en/ownmirrors1/index.html

update it and scan your system and when it is done scanning click the FIX PROBLEMS button.

Also I think you should head over to the AmIInfected? forums of bleepingcomputer.com at this link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

There you post your problem and they will advise you what to do, very helpful knowledgeable people there! :thumbsup:
