|The big problem started when I was online, harmlessly on Facebook and listening to music on Youtube. Suddenly AntiVir began to warn me, saying it quarantined 7 different Malware viruses. We've gotten those before, and AntiVir prevents them no problem. To be cautious, I started up the virus scan to check my whole computer. It got about 15% in when it said it had found 7 detections. My virus scan then stopped for no reason and wasn't making progress, so I fully stopped it and had it "fix" the detections. |
Well then I got an error message saying my system was damaged and to restart it. I did, and when it booted back up, the desktop was gone, nearly all of my programs were no longer listed (I tried to reach the system restore in hopes to fix this problem) and HP Fix popped up. HP Fix did repair a few problems, but I have about 5 problems that it says I need to purchase an Advanced Module for.
I thought maybe this was just a system error, and maybe the viruses had something to do with weakening it. But I had a friend mention the MAX++ virus, saying that the first sign was when on Google, you are directed to an advertisement rather than the website you are trying to access. I did have this problem, and I uninstalled and then re-installed Firefox. This solved my problem.
I got my hard drive in 2009, and other than small viruses (Trojans, Malware) that have been detected, it hadn't had any problems!
