Your best bet is to reboot into safe mode and scan the system,doing this will help ensure that program doesn't start.If after doing this you are still seeing that program you might want to try doing a system restore,try to find one that is a few days older then when the problem started.Starting a system restore can not be stopped once started so take your time when picking the restore point.
Ps.you can run the system restore when your in safe mode,I'd say doing that would be your best bet so as to ensure that program is not running.
Hope this has helped,I'll check back in a few hours to see what progress you've had,good luck

NOT time for a new computer, unless the virus is in the memory and the bios and elsewhere such as graphics memory.

Contact Microsoft by phone and let them know that you need to use the C(ertificate) O(f) A(uthenticity) on a brand new hard drive to which you will install windows after the removal of your suspect drive.

If you are comfortable doing this, you already have enough info from me on the process and if you are not comfortable with the process, turn it over to a nerd near you.

SOURCE: Monitor goes to BIOS Screen Repeatedly

The monitor is probably working well. Windows is trying to tell you that "setup" needs to be performed, but likely the CMOS battery is failing and won't hold the selected settings. The time setting is wrong as well.

"no signal" means computer not comunicating with monitor. Either a graphics card, or driver issue. I would have to know what mother board and power supply you are using. Even though your graphics card supports the use of two monitors, you may not ahve enough power to support it, either by means of your power supply not havning enough wattage, or *********** board may be burned out. Try unplugging one monitor at a time, and then try, one at a time, using each monitor alone in each of the HDMI slots, and see if you can run alone. Pay special attention to the bios POST (power on self test) and see if it gives any indicaiton of motherboard status. If you are saying you got a BSOD (blue screen of death) ...you should have a long error message to post that has a filename. It helps if you know what crashed it. Take that filename, and google it on another computer, and see what probable causes of it are.

HOW CAN I REPLACE MY PRODUCT KEY?


Note: The following steps involve modification of registry key values, which may corrupt your Windows if done incorrectly. Backup registry first before performing the workaround.
  1. Close all Microsoft Office programs.
  2. Click on Start button, then click on Run.
  3. Type "regedit" (without quotes) in the Run text box, and click OK or press Enter.
  4. Locate and then click the following subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration
    Inside, you will find another subkey that resembles the following subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{30120000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}
    Tip: For user with 64-bit (x64) Windows, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\12.0 instead.
  5. Optional: Backup this registry branch by exporting the Registration subkey to a file, just in case the new product key does not work and you have to restore back the old product key. To export the registry, right click on the Registration subkey and click on Export, and follow the on-screen prompt to enter a file name for the registry file and choose a location to store it.
  6. Under the Registration subkey, there may be several Globally Unique Identifiers (GUID) subkey that contain a combination of alphanumeric characters. Each GUID is specific to a program that is installed on your computer. If you find additional subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, then click and open each GUID subkey to view and identify the Office product version by the ProductName registry entry in the right pane. For example:
    ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
  7. After you find the GUID subkey that contains your Office product or program which you want to remove the existing product license key or registration details, delete the following registry entries by right clicking on the registry entry in the GUID subkey, click Delete, and then click Yes: • DigitalProductID
    • ProductID
  8. Exit Registry Editor.
  9. Run or open an Office application program, such as Microsoft Word or Excel or Outlook. Office 2007 will prompt you to enter a new 25-character product key.
  10. Type in the valid and genuine product key, and then click OK.
  11. Then when prompted to choose your preferred type of Microsoft Office 2007 installation, press on "Install Now".
  12. Microsoft Office 2007 will be updated with new product CD key or volume license key, and ready for activation (if it's a non-VLK serial) or use.
Note: If you're having problem with your new Office 2007 product key, simply double click on the backup registry .reg file created at the optional step above to restore the registry settings of the Registration subkey so that the original value can be imported back to the registry.

How to low level the laptop hp g60-23ous need to erase everything i got the start up disck!and can reboot


That is an option when you are installing the operating system. Choose to delete and recreate the windows partition.
Here are the details:

Boot your computer with your Windows CD-ROM inserted. When you get the 'Press any key to boot from CD' message, do so. (If you don't see that message before Windows starts, restart Windows, press the key you're prompted to enter for your PC Setup program, and change the boot order so your CD drive is first.)

At the 'Welcome to Setup' screen, press Enter. The R (repair) option takes you to the Recovery Module, which is useful if Windows won't boot, but it's no help with a reinstallation. Soon you'll be told that there's already a Windows installation on the computer. Press r for a repair reinstall or Esc to begin a complete, destructive one. For a complete restore, select your C: partition and press Enter. When you get the warning that says an operating system is on that partition, press c. When you are asked your partition preference, select Leave the current file system intact (no changes). When you're told that a Windows folder (or Winnt folder for Windows 2000) already exists, press l ('ell') to delete it and create a new one. Follow the series of prompts. When the installation program asks for your name, enter temp.


If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

An unknown virus from someone is attacking my pc everytime I am browsing the internet.how can i delete the said virus?This was happened when I chatted someone and then he sent me the virus, then laugh out...


Follow "best practices":

1. Disconnect from the Internet (unplug the Ethernet cable, or disable the wireless adapter).
2. Backup all your data files to DVD-writable disks, or to an external disk-drive.

Note that the Windows "Files & Settings Transfer Wizard" is useful for exporting your E-mail & contacts to a file -- ensure that your "backup" includes that "export" file


3. Click START
4. Click RUN
5. Type CMD and press ENTER.
6. Type CD "\Program Files" and press ENTER.
7. Type DIR and press ENTER.
to produce a "hint" of the installed programs, e.g., Adobe (Reader), anti-virus, Microsoft Office, and so on.
8. Find all your original CD-ROMs and license-keys, and downloaded programs (such as anti-virus) so that you can reinstall Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office and the other programs.
9. Reinstall Microsoft Windows.
10. Reinstall Microsoft Office.
11. Reinstall your anti-virus software.
12. Connect to the Internet.
13. Access: http://WindowsUpdate.microsoft.com
14. Click "Upgrade to Microsoft Update".
15. Let Microsoft Update download/install all the latest security-updates for Windows & Office.
16. Reload your data-files from your DVD or external disk-drive.

Good luck! It will take 10 to 12 hours of "baby-sitting" your computer, as it installs & updates Windows & Office.

Pc wont read monitor


If you look at the monitor there will be an led light on the front that is always orange or yellow when the computer is off but still connected to the monitor. This led will turn green when the computer boots up, sometimes even showing a "no signal" display before boot. If you see the 'command line'  text during the boot process (video info, BIOS version, POST text, etc) then the monitor is being recognized by the computer. If that text goes away and the led goes back to orange then it is a driver or operating system problem. Pressing whatever key is prompted at the lower left of the display, if you have a display, like F1, F2, F10, Delete or whatever will get you to the setup program and all is good with the display/computer connection and a green light will stay on. If you never get that green led light then either the video card is bad or not seated properly
