my own system hp compaq nx6110 was also hanging and anytime i updated my antivirus Mcafee enterprise 8.5 the problem will go temporarily, but recently it will fail to boot and a system engineer told me to replace the motherboard or cannibalize it but it will suprise you that is the same system i'm browsing with now.Someone that knows his onions in system repair help me disable the USB PORTS and that was the solution for now.Any better solution is welcome for now

Thank so much for your concern, I have checked my sound driver and couldn't find a yellow icon on it, I don't think there is a problem with it, I thikn it is the virus but I am not sure, I just thought, All happened the day my antivirus was out of date. I have updated it now, what can i do?

Hope to hear from you soon.

You have virus attack caused your system hangs!

Look like either you have as follow below:

[list]

[li]not install your best anti-virus protection! IT IS MUST!!! [/li]

[li]not download the update your anti-virus software downloaded lately. IT IS MUST ALWAYS UPDATE more often. There are 1 millions viruses out there without your anti-virus protection.[/li]

[li]not download your Windows Update with Service Pack 2. IT IS MUST!!! [/li]

[li]If your sound is not working on your system, then your sound driver is missing or corrupted. IT NEEDS TO DOWNLOAD a sound driver.[/li]

[/list]

Or you maybe got download from the strange link you never seen it before that contains a virus inside the link WITHOUT YOUR ANTI-VIRUS PROTECTION! Could be a link, pirated software, CD, Flash memory stick, or floppy disk you just download 2 days ago! You got virus attack on your system.
