    Do I have a virus?


    So, my pc has been acting weird when I try to shut down and then turn my pc back on again my taskbar will appear empty and every time I try to use it my mouse will switch to the loading icon and my screen will reset itself. And on multiple occasions, when I download anything or really minimize programs my desktop icons will appear like empty folders and then my screen will start to look white and eventually refresh. Both of these problems are never ending loops until I do a restart. Windows defender has not given me any warnings, so I am wondering if this means my pc is infected. Can anyone help me?

  2. 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.
