Virus just makes my PC reboot, then reboot again...and again
« on: October 31, 2011, 03:34:39 AM »
I'm running Avast 6.0.1 in all of our PC's.  One of my kids' PC's (Win XP Media Ctr) picked up a virus from a game site where the now PC just reboots and reboots.

Is there a boot CD that I can download and run on this machine to disinfect it?  Or will I have to do a clean Windows install.     

As always.....thank you for your advise and help!

@Groomerdriver,

You may want to open a new topic in the "Viruses and Worms" section of Avast Forum http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=4.0.
