Please can anyone help me. I have a virus on my home PC.
I have Windows XP, and if I try to log on, my computer
will automatically shut down. There is no countdown, no
warning, it just shuts off. I can run the PC in Safe-
mode, so I know it is not the PC hardware/software, it is
a virus.
Any suggestions?! I cannot even run my virus software
(Symantec) as the PC does not load up.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
