Hi

 

My computer upon shut down, starts again on its own.

 

Both my desktop and my laptop. Ie same symptoms. Therefore, it seems unlikely that it would be mechanical.

 

They share data via usb occasionally. I recently installed to my laptop a suspicious crack by a "KHANNIES" pirate. I installed that a while ago on my desktop.

 

This restart issue happend to desktop first.

 

 

Deskt is win7 lapt is vista.

 

Any ideas?

Hello JM_123 -

My computer upon shut down, starts again on its own.

First turn off the Desktop computer by using the Orb and selecting Shut Down ......

Now unplug your computer from the power point and remove any Internet connection - -

 

If you claim the computer is still operating, "it is haunted", since a computer is just a fancy "toaster or kettle".

 

Now plug it back in and turn it on, and post the results .............................

 

Chances are you only have Sleep set to 2 minutes, so you only use Sleep function .

 

Thank You -

Hello noknojon.

 

I read the bbs posts. I haven't gone into the BIOS yet.

 

...Before I start experimenting, I have to do a full back up.

 

You see last time I shut down, I couldn't boot (wouldn't beep) --not even keyboard. I finally disconnected everything and it booted; then I reconnected one by one and success.

 

Then I started working again. Now I have to save that work (and full system mirror+) before I fiddle around with tech [which I dislike].

 

[+ Before I mirror on to my NEW "E HD drive", I want it to 'set in' a bit --like driving a new car slow the first week [my kooky brain]. Then full save to that drive --hundreds and hundreds of gigs.]

 

I was hoping my auto restart issue was quickly recognized and that there was a simple fix.

 

My desktop computer is set to sleep by me --30 minutes. (Lap top isn't tho.)

From your posts, you have your computer set to "restart" after a very short shutdown.

 

You must remove the new External Drive, Turn the power off from your computer, and Reboot - (Restart from a full power shutdown) ..

 

This will then prove that both of the systems are not haunted as you suspect -

I can shutdown after two shut downs-- the one that auto restarts and then the next one I activate that ...shuts down for good.

 

Then I have to disconnect all periperals to restart.

 

This issue starts long before the new HDD was installed.

 

I do not have my computer set to anything.

 

"Haunted" is your word (applied incessently).

 

You have a nice day.

Is there anyone ELSE here that understands the situation?

Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide .

  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running "FRST" which will create two logs.

When you have done that, Post your logs (as directed) in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs , then still start the new topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them.

A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one, to prevent others answering incorrectly.

 

Thank You -
