With bootable antivirus CDs. (see google for those.)
On really badly damaged systems we reload the OS.
Alright, Matt speaking. In a nutshell, my father's computer has, since a couple hours ago, been running really slowly and eventually got the BSoD. He's been using it ever since around 2005, so it's pretty old.
The BSoD was a kernel_stack_inpage_error. I've done some research, and apparently it has to do with the RAM sticks being corrupted, or a faulty hard drive.
Regarding the virus, it's iexplorer.exe. Before anybody says it, yes, I know about explorer.exe and iexplore.exe. The virus gets going during start-up, and it takes up a massive amount of RAM and CPU. The computer isn't all that great, so it's taking a huge load on during start-up.
The main problem is that during start-up, it is extremely slow and will take forever to be able to click on something. It took a good 5 minutes before task manager would even open. That's when I got to look at iexplorer.exe.
Are the BSoD's and the virus related somehow? If so, how can I fix it? Even if they aren't, I would really appreciate any advice to help resolve this issue. Thank you very much for your time.
