If there are viruses, it isn't someone here causing them, but some N54 advertising scripts. Or maybe you picked it up elsewhere.

Try downloading and running Malwarebytes.

One!life > I know at other places where I "log in"
and "log out" after I've post'd,
I have to also "log out"
at the home page "log in" as well,
or it shows me still "log'd in".

So, to me that seems a bit fishy!

Love Ya, timelife!

But software is often fishy. Doesn't mean it is a "virus".

I like that. It's even better than "chill out."

You take care Mondo.

My PC has been acting up ever scents some storm a couple weeks ago.
I'm pretty sure it got some electrical surges, the lights in my office got a little brighter at moments, and the PC rebooted several times during the storm.

The results were PC sometimes failed to start, when you push the start button nothing would happen as if it were unplugged.

I tested the power supply by shorting the green wire to a black ground on the ATX plug and the power supply works.

But now I can't start my PC without jump starting it, by shorting the green and black and then pushing the normal power on button. Something on the mother board got screwed up that tells the power supply to turn on.

And now I seem to be getting bad sectors on my C: HDD

Then last night I spent 3 hours trying to delete an e-mail that seemed to have a virus, unless the e-mail happened to land on bad HDD sectors. I also found in a FOUND.000 chkdsk dir bazaar non identifiable files that I couldn't delete until I changed the dir name.

So tonight I'm thinking maybe the storm surge fried some HDD sectors besides screwing up my power on motherboard controls.

Any thoughts?

Tonight my wife couldn't get the PC started while I was at work. Sometimes it will start and sometimes you need to jump start it, with a paper clip shorting the green and black ATX cable.

So it may not be a virus, but just a chain of problems from a surge.
But I know there are viruses that attack the HDD chips, but I haven't seen that for 10 years.

I might just put a momentary button on it to short the green and black so my wife can start it up. And put in a spare HDD if the wacky file thing keeps occurring.

Just short it out and it will start every time LOL hahahaha

peace out I think you got something there Mondo!

Gee, your PC rebooted several times during a violent electrical storm?

I think there was a clue there.

Most people would disconnect their PC from power etc, before the storm hit.

Those who dont care if they lose their PC, their data and perhaps their home might do as you did.

Just a thought.

I have a surge protector but it didn't do the job this time.

"Gee, your PC rebooted several times during a violent electrical storm?"
"I think there was a clue there." ya I think so....

It didn't seem to affect my PC at first, because it isn't a constant problem, but unpredictable to this time.

... is that the power supply is your problem. The surge may have blown a capacitor and now your motherboard power is no longer a "flat" voltage but has hash in it. (Voltage would be lower on average as well).

The power button probably turns a transistor on to short green to ground but can't turn the transistor on because of the hash.

The hash is causing corruption in the data going to your hard drive and so your files are getting screwed up.

It's not a good environment in which to continue using the computer (if the above is true) because before very long ... your operating system will quit too. Corruption in the running system gets written back to the hard drive ... which eventually screws the stored OS.

Have you got an oscilloscope with which to check your power rails? That'll show you hash if there is any.
