What I always do to ensure it isn't a virus, is put in a linux, keep at least 2, such as pclinuxos 2013 and mint linux 2013, and always get the next
2 when they come out, downloaded. And redo the bios boot order if needed, so cdrom is first. Then go into the live load. If it all works, its a
virus. The last time did this, it worked ok then started going through the drive check when I was loading the original windows, so it gave me a clue
that the harddrive needed replacing. That was on a friends computer she was going to recycle, thought it was toast. So I put in 4 gigs of ram, she
only had 1, replaced the hardrive and put on pclinuxos 2013. It works just fine.
Live booting linux tends to identify problems, if its hardware or software.
