Hi, I hope this is the right place to post. If not, I apologise, let me know and I'll move it to where it should be. Thanks!
Basically, I'm having major problems with my computer of late, and the troubles all started a few weeks ago when I got a virus. I don't know much about getting rid of viruses, but I had quarantined certain files with AVG and deleted other things I found. I still got blue screen from time to time and often when I used my computer it would become choppy and the sound would become distorted. It would get worse and worse till my computer crashed, but as long as I restarted in time it was fine. I posted in another forum here (for BSOD), and was given some helpful advice. I thought things were over with that problem.
However, although I no longer get BSOD, things are worse and I'm not sure if it's the virus or just me messing up my poor computer with stupidity. I cleaned it out the other day with spyware doctor and a program called regcure (both found traces of viruses). It was fine, but then last night when I turned on the computer it made about 3 or 4 "hardware error" noises, but no error came up. It's made those noises before and only once have I seen an error message (which I forgot to write down), but now when the error sound plays, the computer gets slower and slower till I can barely move my mouse, and have to wait every few seconds to try and move it. It took me ages just to get to this website. The hard drive, though very quiet, sometimes sounds like it's working away consistently and I certainly can't watch videos or do much of anything really.
Any help with this would be so much appreciated. Thank you!
