For a week or so, I would download games from different web sites called Mystery Case Files - Prime Suspect and all of those games that fall under the MCF series, I think it's about 5 or 6 of them. I would play the game for the 60 mins given me and then would be asked to purchase the game, and instead of doing that, for the week, I would uninstall it, go to the next site re-download the game, play it uninstall it. During one of the downloads from one of the web sites and I can not tell you which site it was, this site took control of my IE and I heard this sound coming from my CPU. The only way I can explain that sound is, a lite explosion, it's a sound it makes and then my PC totally freezes or locks up, it really does not matter what I'm doing. I always know when something is going on in my Tower, 1) because I can hear something is going on, and 2) the little light that lights up next to my shut off switch and when this happens, instead of the light going off because the function has taken place, that light stays on because it just locked up my PC. By-the-way, it's like a surge of energy going thru the CPU before it freezes or locks up, I'm not saying that's what it is, but that's the only way I can explain it. It's almost like, this computer has a mind of it's own.
I have literally been on my PC all night trying to get things back to normal, it has been a nightmare to say the least. The only reason I am able to make this post, because my PC is letting me.
What I have noticed in this whole process is,
1) I can NOT reboot my system, CTRL + ALT + Delete twice;
2) I can not download anything
3) It freezes or locks up when trying to do a SCAN disk, Fdisk, downloads, while Windows is trying to load even in Safe mode or I dont have to be doing anything. I have had some problems with my PC, but nothing on this order before.
4) The 1st time I had to do a hard shut down, when I came back up on my PC, it immediately took me to SCAN disk and during that scan in safe mode, this message came up 5 times during that scan:
The C:\Program Files\Java\jre 15.0_03\bin folder contains incorrect information about jsound.dll. This file or folder's last-accessed date is invalid or is in the future. This may be because your PC's clock is set incorrectly. Scan Disk repairs future dates by changing them to "unknown". Scan Disk repairs out-of-range dates by changing them to the nearest setting within the valid range.
After that maybe an hour or two, the sound came back up and it lock up again. I tried and retried all night to get back up on my PC and sometimes I did get back, but it would lock up again,. Finally I had to do a Quick Restore. The QR would not work so I did the Fdisk, and I gotta tell you, I had NO idea what I was doing. All I know is, I had to delete all the PARTITIONS and reload them .... that's all I know that I did. After that, I started the QR and here I am.
I don't want to for get this, during that last SCAN disk, one of the prompts that came up said that SCAN could not WRITE to the "C" drive.
On April 28th I posted that I had found a TROJAN and up to this point NO one has answered that post, so I thought that after all that had taken place, that Trojan is causing all of this problem. Another thing that came to me was that my HARD drive was going or has gone bad, another thing I thought was, my Operating is corrupt that too is going bad. I don't know, that's why I here. One more thing, and I know this will sound crazy, but after I have to do the hard shut down, the amount of minutes that I let the PC stay off, is how long it is before that sound comes and then I lock up.
Will someone please help me so I can find out what to do next.
Thank you !!!
