This question already has an answer here:
I think my son downloaded something from the internet and possibly infected the computer. The Google Chrome browser will not start any more and after an hour of using computer he gets some sort of blue screen saying that memory is being dumped.
I don't want to format the hdd and reinstall at this time.
Can I salvage the machine by some anti virus?
- How do I detect what kind of virus do I have?
- What kind of free anti virus software do I download to fix this problem?
- I have some important personal files such as pictures and music etc. If I back them up some where and copy them to another computer would I infect the other computer?
- Could I accidentally back up virus files if I back up my pictures or other personal documents?
