Scan told me about 2 possible viruses.Was able to remove only one.After some searching,found that the 2nd one may not even actually be a virus. In addition to this boot scan I have run Malwarebytes,CCleaner,Eusing free registry cleaner and (I believe) if I remember correctly,Spybot.
Everything seems (and seemed) to be up to date also (drivers/programs). Checked all (outside of the tower) connections and all seemed fine.Checked for dust clogging fans.All seemed okay.Ran recovery (not restore) (and for about 2 weeks +/- give/take) all seemed better.NOT ! Boot loping started again.Next,I did a restore.Again,things seemed fine (for awhile) (Again,2 weeks +/- give/take).
After (finally) being able to get the comps internet connection set up again (kept looping while trying to do this) computer was back online (supposedly). BUT-IE would work not work well.Kept erroring out.Finally (after boot looping during process of updating IE & downloading FF) I was able to get the browsers to start working again without erroring out constantly (sometimes).
Comp has been working (again +/- 2 weeks give/take) but still with browsers erroring out a lot.New problem...after booting up this morn,I went back to the comp & had a blank screen & comp tower was beeping.One (slightly long) beep.Repeating over & over.I am at my wits end with this comp.Been working on this for months now.And,if it matters,I have even tried MS's fix it center.
Have considered buying and trying a new hard drive.But,is that the route I should go ? Is it maybe something else ? Motherboard,etc ? Loose connections inside the tower ? Maybe some (slightly) new ram that was installed (MONTHS ago) ??? I cannot keep a "constant" eye on this post today.But,every now & then I will check in.Any advice would be immensely helpful and much appreciated.
