ok.. so for about 2 months now, i've been running my laptop with the spyware quake virus. not much has happened in terms of computer problems besides that annoying pop up in the corner [although my wireless connection does go ion and out often].
i finally searched google for this and found tons of answers. i followed instructions for one of the first remedies i found. a manual deletion. here is the link to the site with the instructions
i followed them closely, and when i ran the second program [ewido anti spyware] my computer crashed after 15 minutes of scanning.
my new problem: my laptop will not load. i try normal mode, safe mode, 'last known good config'... and nothing works. i either get a blue box with white lettering and then a milisecond later, shuts down... or i get a black screen with a windows style error window that i cant read because another milisecond later, again, it shuts off.
now.. i have pictures, etc. on there that i would love to keep. i know you have all been there before... how can i fix this problem without totally reloading windows.. if i can even do that!
you guys are the experts so.......
