Is this a virus? in Viruses, Spyware, Adware Posted September 26, 2007 · Report reply Ok, this is almost definitely hardware. Sounds like RAM would be the first thing to test, first download Memtest86+ from >>Here<< . You will need to burn it as an ISO to a CD, so use an ISO burning program like >>ImgBurn<<. Then boot from the CD. You may have to configure it to boot from the CD in the BIOS, if you don't know how to do that here's a general guide: <<>><<>>. Note: It is best for Memtest86 to run a long time to make sure it checks your RAM thoroughly. I would recommend around 12 hours, so it might be best to just set it up so it does it overnight. Let me know what it finds........A single error probably means a bad stick of RAM.
