Hello to all. I'm Marilyn from New Jersey. I'm going crazy because of a Volume "icon" that sits on top of windows & won't go away. That's why I'm here, hoping to help & be helped. Nice to meet you all!
Hello, I'm new here as well. I am not very computer savvy, but considering I have a computer now that likes to give me headaches, its nice to see there is a community of people that know how the things tick.
I am Trip (member name 'tripison"). Natural health advocate and b2b trade representative WHO DEPENDS ON HIS COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT! (iPhone, iPad, Laptops)
Like most here I arrived here due to an unresolved computer issue. I bought my first PC in 1993....6 since. I am not a tech but have never been downed by malware or virus on any of my computers...until now.
Currently, my Toshiba Satellite P855-S5312 Laptop is down. It has been invaded by MyPcBackup and PC Health Kit which I am unable to remove. I think they both rode in Trojan Horse on Java Update which I knee-jerked the update (was in a big hurry... D'OH!) between uninstalling Norton and Installing AVAST! Computer will not reboot and "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC" - I am in the loop...ugghhhhh....that started with 2 days of sitting on the error fix which finally arrived at "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC". It says Press "Advanced option" to try other options to repair your PC or "Shut down" to turn off your PC. Log file: C:\windows\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt.
I have gotten the responses from Avast: AVASTUI.exe; "X (in a red circle) The instruction 0x76e3f005referenced memory at 0x00000001b. The memory could not be written"
There you have it. Me and my issues in a nutshell. I started it, can't finish it.
