    Virus-ed!


    G'day ,

    I believe I have been infected by a virus, and I am wondering if anyone could help?

    Whenever my (windows 7) computer turns on, I log in, and about 30 secons after logging in, it has a bluescreen. I do know that it is not an OS issue.

    I've tried booting up Kaspersky's Linux recovery disk, and running a virus checker on that - nothing, same thing with avira, also booted into safe mode, installed the following antivirus systems, and they report all negative for any viruses:

    Kaspersky
    McAfee
    Malware Bytes scanner
    SpyHunter
    Micro Trend
    AVG
    (and a few others)

    After scanning with all this software... still no avail.

    Any help would be appreciated

    It very well could just be an OS problem as opposed to a virus one.

    What error code(s) and/or messages from the blue screen do you see? Those error codes usually are there to help determine the cause.

    - Prior to the blue screen, had anything been installed recently?
    - Can you access Safe Mode? If so, try running scans from within there as well as running CCleaner.
