Ok....the blue screen MAY or may not be a virus.....my step son (the younger one) just had that. WHY? well.....he didn't realize you should shut down the computer in a sequence....
CLOSE the windows that are open, the LOG off the internet, log off the browser/log off the user....(some computers are automatically/always connected to the internet....so, you do not disconnect...that is ok, as long as you have the right programs...) but, to then go to the TURN OFF menu and let the computer TURN off on it's own speed. This allows it to shut down the programs it needs to in a specific order.
Kind of like STRETCHING after a good workout....
Same thing with turning it on....they no longer start right up....you hit power, and it brings up one screen, then after a few seconds of hearing the computer run, you hit LOG IN....then you hear it do some more running for a second or 5 and then you click the browser you want (by then the hour glass has stopped flipping upside down back and forth....)....and then viola!! you are surfin......This allows it to SLOWLY start up rather than JUMP right into marathon speeds.....
Well, the youngest step son kept leaving the computer on in his room and told me...just hit the button....I was like...ummmm, don't you want it to turn off by the menu?? No, it don't need that....well, after 1 week....he had the blue screen. It had damaged his Window's program. He had to RELOAD that on.....he still wonder's why he has fried 5 motherboards in the last year.....??
Well, I hope you get the computer problems fixed....
