View Full Version : Computer shuts down itself during scan

04-09-2006, 05:46 PM
Recently my IE homepage setting option has been changed to http://www.haohao1.com and I can't change to anything else anymore.

I highly suspect there is some kind of spyware, malicious code or virus residing in the machine.

Tried to run spy sweeper, Microsoft malicious software removal, Norton Antivirus either in normal mode or safe mode, my computer will turn itself off automatically during scan. It only happens when it reaches to certain stage.

No log can't be found in any of scanning software or event view for the cause of shut down.

This is something very abnormal. Hopefully I can get advise from someone about this issue.

Welcome to PressF1, mexicowoman. It would be great if you can post us a HijackThis log or take a look at PressF1's FAQ on how to remove malwares -> http://faqf1.net.nz/index.php?title=Spyware%2C_Adware_%26_Viruses
