 Heya, gang! Who wants to earn a little bacon money by helping me, please? :)

 

 I'm lazy and have no doubt that I've managed to infect myself with a virus or two, because internet porn is too tempting to say no too. As a result I get a regular Blue Screen (at least once a day after I turn the computer on) and semi-regular black screens after some garbled static and a sudden slow down. I'm loath to blame hardware, as the video card is pretty new... So my first thought is "Viruses!".

 

 I'm running Windows 7 64 (Ultimate). I've got AVG Free, Malware bytes and the MIGHTY windows firewall.

 

 I'd be happy to throw some support money at anyone who can walk me through a good clean up so I can eliminate malicious software as the cause.

 

 Thanks in advance! Just tell me what you want me to do.

 Try running Malwarebytes and your antivirus in Safe Mode.  Then from an elevated command prompt run SFC.  Click Start and type CMD in the search box, right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as administrator.  From the command prompt type sfc /scannow.  

 

Good luck.

 

P.S.  I guess it's getting cold "down under", it's sure getting hot here in the US.  Regards to the roos and koalas.  :hello:


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

 Alright, I'll give this a whirl and let you know what happens. I'll tell the Roo's you said hi, but I'm not on speaking terms with the Koalas!! DON'T GET ME STARTED!

 

 I'll update tomorrow. Thanks for the advice. I'll be back!
