do I have a virus??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so here's the deal:

I fire my rig up after I get back from work and I get blue screen crash before login screen.

OK, so I try a few more times, no dice.

I lower my OC, no windows.

Use windows start up recovery, I get into windows but no Avast AV service.

I uninstall Avast and install Comodo AV but I lose my comodo firewall.
so I install zonealarm firewall

NOW, After rebooting I get a Virus Alert from Comodo and I tell it to Clean the file. everything seems good, Except:

Windows dies in a BSOD. and now it BSOD's within 30 seconds of login into windows. I had a window popup just 1 time telling me there was a problem with the power, then, boom, BSOD

I have dropped my OC back to stock with a little more voltage to account for any degradation. still get BSOD,s

Also, I had a problem when dropping my OC in the Bios where there was screen corruption as I was lowering the FSB setting. just a 1 time thing tho

I am running Memtest as we speak, as it seems very strange that I would get corrupted screen while working in the bios on a fresh restart.

Strange stuff, So what does this sound like virus or dying rig??

Mmm I wouldn't think so, sounds like a hardware problem or corrupted OS to me....

Oh and what is the BSOD error code?

I would say if you are seeing errors while working in BIOS that it would be a hardware issue that is causing your problems.
