  1. Do I have a silent virus?


    I'm beyond frustrated with my Gigabyte Aero laptop that I had to revert to factory settings 3 days ago. I ended up reverting to factory settings due to the computer acting strange after downloading an update under the windows 11 update section in the settings. Examples include...

    -Longer than average shut down times and boot up times whenever initiated

    -Desktop turning black for a few minutes after restarting the windows explorer via task manager(this was done because I would get an infinite blue loading circle cursor when right clicking on the desktop, eventually followed with a "not responding" message)

    -Files crashing when opened

    -Desktop wallpaper glitches

    After reverting to factory settings(3 days ago) it has been working fine until now. I also ran virus scanners via Norton and everything was fine. I didn't have any out of the ordinary programs as I only installed 2 IDE programs for coding along with Discord and Chrome. I really don't feel like reverting to factory settings is appropriate since the issue seems to be present once again.

    Update: My laptop has been currently "updating" for the past hour, im aware that updates can take time but with the laptops history of updates I feel its appropriate to feel partly paranoid with the sudden change in speed. Does anyone have any idea what this may be?

    Silent not working

    My 6133 will not respond when I select "Silent." It shows the silent logo, but the phone still rings. Any suggestions?

    Desktop App Converter - silent installer?


    One of the requirements for successfully running the Desktop App Converter app, now available on Windows Store, is a silent installer for the desktop application to convert to appx package. I would like to ask the TenForums users for suggestions on creating such a silent (non-interactive) installer.

    Update: NSIS can create silent installers Do I have a silent virus? :)

    Clean the Virus

    Hi,

    Virus infection usually happens on a computer when it is exposed to an infected website or removable devices. For us to help you clean the malware on your device, we would need you to answer the following questions:

    • Which build and version of Windows are you using?
    • Did you encounter any error messages related to having a virus infection on your device?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest running any available antivirus software on your PC. It would be very helpful to us if you could also provide the result of the antivirus scan process.

    Looking forward to your response.
