    Not everything is a virus. Maybe you need a new hard drive. Easy to install pre-programmed with the Operating system. You could also go for a solid state hard drive if you want.

    sounds like you should just reinstall Windows, or Reset it to Factory settings.

    even cheap laptops don't do weird stuff unless something's broken.

    Reformat then reinstall everything from scratch.

    1. Is your computer new??

    2. do you have virus protection??

    3. did you change internet provider??

    You haven't given us much to work with - other than your computer doesn't seem to be working.

    Can't figure it out ?? Take it into the Geek Squad @ Best Buy. This is what I do.
