    Hello YELLOW? What??

    Hi Folks.
    Here's what happened about 15 minutes ago.

    (Stranger than a UFO) this morning my screen went YELLOW after several minutes of activity. I could see nothing else and had no control, in that I couldn't shut down via a key press, nor even by holding the ON button in for more than 5 seconds. I had to switch off at the back.

    On starting it up again I got a checksum error and so I just loaded the BIOS default values and it started OK. A subsequent virus and malware (quick) scan showed only a tracking cookie.

    This Yellow was not mellow, and I'm wondering if anyone has any idea about it or has had a similar experience? Oh, and I was only typing some text into MSN Messenger at the time. I've now been going for longer than before. Who knows...???

    Ta. Am.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Col. It looked like I had fallen head first onto it and was staring at a brick
    It was deep yellow, bordering on orange...

    Folks. I'm unaware of "bug" as a class of malware. In both cases they were listed as a virus. I really don't know how it got there, and later this afternoon the auto scanner found yet another virus.
    Well, at least that's working. Am.

    I use F-sure, provided by OP...US. They say it's not as good as Kaspersky, but I only just heard how good that's supposed to be a few days ago.
    Apart from today's yellow screen (tie around an old oak forest) I haven't ever had any problems with malware in the 2 years I've been using this. And who knows if the YS was due to some malware??
