What to do if my computer is infected by a virus or a malware?
I had a virus on my computer which would not allow windows to activate, giving the error "the device is not ready". It also changed the program data, and users folder location in the registry. I reinstalled windows figuring it was something that I got from possibly browsing on a malicious website, but I was wrong. After reinstalling my programs (which I keep in a seperate partition to prevent me from having to have to re-download everything" i got the same symptoms again. Is there any virus search engine where I can type in my symptoms to determine what this virus is, and how to get rid of it?
