please note win repar found a boot up problem and repaired it i used the repair option from the dvd thou the pc still wouldn't start

i never visit bad sites press weird links download weird things is it possible that someone just decided to hack me with a super intelligent virus that deletes itself and work thru my ram and wen't thru the avast firewall i payed about 60$ for this

haha it turns out it was a usb stick i had connected in the front of the pc

now i hope it was that and not the repair that made it work as that means it was no virus
