...and it has a legitimate download site at THIS LINK....BUT...if someone downloaded it from the "Myspace" website, who knows what he got..
If the computer will only stay on for about 5 minutes, it's hard to know whether the problem is malware related or hard ware related..Try removing the cover off the computer tower, blow out all the dust and junk from inside, then point a house fan at the inards..Run the computer in Safe Mode like that and see if you can run a full system scan using Norton. If you also have spyware removal tools like Spybot Search & Destroy, or Ad-Aware, try to run those also. While in Safe Mode, open the Control Panel, then check for any strange programs and uninstall them...Also while in Safe Mode, click on Start-Run, type "msconfig", then click on OK. When the System Configuration Utility loads, click on the "Start Up" tab and UNCHECK any unknown programs, then click on "Apply", then OK. You'll need to restart the computer and see how things go.
Hope this helps.
Hope this helps.
Ok my friend put this program on his computer and he downloaded it from myspace. Now my question is it a virus? The reason why I asked was his computer started to do funny things shortly after downloading it. Also if anyone knows how to help me that would be great. WHAT IS WRONG is that his computer will boot, but when it gets to the loading windows screen, it will start the booting to windows screen but it will stop, restart and start the process over agian about 4-8 times before you can get to windows. Now you can get into windows but only for a brief period of time(about 1-5 mins). Now i tried booting into last good known configuretion, that did the same thing as the pervious. Then i tried booting into safe mode. I could get into windows fine but Nortan antivirus makes the computer restart, and avg doesn't even open. In safe mode it will stay open for a minimum 5 mins and it won't stay on for much longer tho. He is running on XP, and a fairly new computer. IF YOU CAN HELP ME THAT WILL BE GREAT!
