My friend said he got a virus...this is what he said:

I am on my sisters computer because mine got this lethal virus. Even the Sony guy came, and said it cannot be fixed, and my comp is no longer under warranty!!! the file name is somthing like IPVMON.SYS or somthing like that!! My $1300 computer can no longer work!!!! I am so frustrated!!!! What happened was when I started it up, this all blank blue screen came up stating "windows was shut down due to a.... failure" it said to restart and try again, but everytime i restart, the same thing happens. Anyone else had this problem before!?!?!?!?!?
Does he have a virus? What should he do?

Hey Keith,

I can't believe his machine is unfixable. Ask him if he can boot in the safe mode. If he can, try running a virus scan there. Also, ask him to write down just what his BSoD says...that might give a clue to the problem.

AS you know, some of the guys here probably could help {although I'm no expert}. Tell him not to give up just yet. That's my view.
