I'm running XP sp3 on a fairly fast computer, and I've had no real problem until now. I'm certain that I've got some sort of malware that's preventing explorer.exe from working right. I was just going through my email and I opened something from my girlfriend and all of a sudden avast started losing it's mind and detecting a billion different little nasty things and then all my icons and my task bar vanish. At I can still run everything through task manager, which is what I'm doing now to write this. I've run through my system with AVG and avast and ad aware and none of them turn up anything, which is strange, especially considering the event directly preceding my stuff going missing. I'm really at a loss and I don't want to start making backup disks of all my work if I have some sort of stupid worm that could decide to take up residence on a dvd and reinfect my system, and I really don't want to wipe the drive yet, so can anyone help me out?
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?
