Question: My 6 year old HP computer was recently infected with a virus. It seems to be beyond repair, it won't boot up in normal mode OR in safe mode, and the system recovery which resets everything to default, didn't help. This computer which is infected is the main computer on my home network. We have 4 computers (including the one i'm typing from now) on the same network. Whatever it was that was downloaded was downladed directly onto the computer which has died. I guess my fear is the virus will somehow spread from one computer to another without me knowing or doing anything actively to download it. Is this something I have to worry about, or is what I'm describing impossible?
