  1. Hi!

    My friend just built a computer and now he got realy lucky. He got a virus from another computer in their network and now when we try to install windows and/or just boot from something else than the normal hdd it just shuts down all the USB ports.

    When we use the antivir it says it deletes the virus but then after reboot it's there again :/

    So what to do??

    If you are trying to reinstall Windows, using the OEM cdrom should do the trick and wipe the hard drive clean. If you have identified the name of the virus, you could try looking for additional information online or in a virus database affiliated with the anti-virus program you are using.
