This morning after booting Win XP Pro on a Compaq Evo Desktop, Norton AV 2006 found a Downloader Virus (apparently with a program called Spy Sheriff which it tried to install). Norton removed the virus but I went to Symantic.Com to check on full removal instructions and follwed them, first disabling System Restore then I attemped to restart the computer in Safe Mode and it stopped giving a blue screen with instructions. The basic note was "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and "Technical information: *** STOP: 0x0000000A (0xF7BFD354, 0x000000FF,0x00000001,0x8050FD7F)" on the Blue Screen. I tried several times to reboot, edven tried OS system recovery disc but it did not work. Any suggestions.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
