Solved: possible virus?
I need to do a disk check on the o/s disk but I can't remember the command. I'm having problems with my pc trying to open programs and other problems. AVG anti-virus doesn't detect any viruses or threats. I have to keep unplugging my pc to restart it. HELP! Thanks in advance.

When I had similar problems I discovered from searches and I put to practice they helped:

(1) All programmes/accessories/system tools/clean up/select C Drive-OK/disk cleanup-OK, and removed all temp files and rubbish.

(2) Then go through the same functions and instead of CLEAN UP-OK, click MORE OPTIONS (Top-right), and then do the three CLEAN UP functions, the removal of old RESTORE points does help a lot and returns more storage.

(3) My computer/right click C Drive/properties/tools/error checking-check now. Will take awhile, but may repair any errors.

(4) Do same again as per (3), but this time do a DEFRAG.

That is all the intermediate knowledge that I have, because I am intermediate as well.

Then if you know exactly what hard drive you are using, then the manufacture may have a free diagnostic tool to check to see if your hard drive is healthy.
