For a few weeks now my computer has been freezing and then going to the blue screen. After that, I can restart it normally. This can happen a few times a day, then not again for days. I decided to run super antispyware, but when I clicked on it, it says I cant run it and to contact the system administrator. This is my home computer, I am the administrator.

Then I tried to do a system restore while in safe mode and it wouldn't let me, again because it says I am not the administrator.

I let my nephew borrow my computer several times over the past months and I'm afraid he might have gotten a virus.


I'm very computer illiterate, but I'm running windows 7 home premium, 64 bit, AMD E-350 processor 1.60 GHz

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm sorry that I have to agree with you. I too think that your system has been infected. I will ask a moderator to move this thread into the Am I infected forum so that you can get the expert assistance you need. Please read the instructions and follow their directions exactly. Makes things much easieer on both sides

A large majority of viruses that cause a BSOD are Rootkits. I've found through my experience that TDSSKiller finds a lot of those Rootkits that cause BSOD. Download and run that, it's a very quick scan.


Download Link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/


If the scan comes up clean, you might want to boot into Safemode and scan the computer with Malwarebytes. (To boot into safemode, continuiously tap F8 during system startup)


Download Link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/





If your computer gets a BSOD while in safemode than I'm going to go jump the gun and suggest testing your hardware.


Testing Hard Drive: Download, install, and run a surface test with HDTune. If you get any bad sectors than your Harddrive is failing.

Download Link: http://www.hdtune.com/


Testing RAM: Testing the RAM could be as simple as removed a sticks and testing (Trial and Error) or you can run diagnostic tests on it with Memtest86.

Download Link: http://www.memtest86.com/


Check for Overheating: Checking for overheating is self explanatory--When you get  the BSOD, quicking touch the components of the PC with your hand, you might get burned a little but it will tell you what is going on. If this is a desktop, open up the PC. First touch your Power Supply (This will discharge any static from your body without harming the computer), then your Heat Sinks, then your Hard Drive and lastly you Graphics Card.


If you've tried all these things and you're still geting a BSOD, let me know and we can go further in diagnosing the issue.
