Default Frustrating morning!
Computer crashed around 2am. When it started acting weird I decided to close all programs and scan, but it crashed before scan completed. Luckily I set it up to do a boot scan in the event that happened. It is still running the boot scan at 9 am. It has detected 2 viruses and 5 corrupted files so far and is only 61% complete.

I am so frustrated and tired!

I am not a virus genius and will not be able to repair this on my own if it's serious. Please pray my virus software can repair it for me and I will have no further issues.

Take a look at the name of the viruses and then google them. Alot of times there are tiny little programs that people make to remove them. Or you may find a way to remove them yourself.

The crashing is the hard part. The problem is that it may have caused damage to part of the computer. Try to find a way to remove them first. If you can't, post here and I'll try to help after work.

I didn't even realize you responded. I'm sorry for being late returning this response. I do appreciate your offer to help. I figured it out and was able to isolate and remove the virus. PC has been fine since.

Glad to hear everything's fine.

Did you happen to have everything backed up?

Yes I did. I use Dropbox, SugarSync, and Google docs for documents, and I use iCloud to back up my entire PC. I'm planning on getting an external hard drive as well as an extra measure.

I'm glad you were able to fix it. I love computers, but they drive me crazy too.

LOL! I was up all night and worked on it most of the day the next day. My strong suit is not fixing these types of issues, but I did get it fixed.
