Computer Reboots Exactly After 15 Minutes

Immediately after turning my computer on, a message pops up saying Limit = 15 minutes. Exactly 15 minutes afterwards, my computer restarts. I have also noticed that the date and time on my computer is totally way off but i cannot change it.

My computer is on a domain however I cannot log onto the domain. I keep getting an error saying that the time on my computer does not correspond with the time on the network, so I cannot log onto the domain.

What is this limit? And who placed it to 15 minutes? Is it maybe a virus? I scanned my computer with the free version of AVG Antivirus and it did detect a virus called limit.exe but it cannot remove it. How can this virus be removed?

Hello!
 
Try using Avira Antivirus you can download. Its a free version but effective on most viruses these days. Disable Unnecessary startup items. Click Start, click run and type msconfig.
 
You will see below this:
 
system configuration utility
 
 
Follow here:
 
1. Select Startup.
 
system configuration utility-select start up
 
2. And you will see all the Startup Items Uncheck all Unnecessary items (exclude the Anti-Virus item) and click apply.
 
Uncheck all Unnecessary items-click apply
 
3. Click Restart.
 
system configuration-click restart
 
Disable Task Scheduler.
 
Step by step Instructions (Readme).

Hi,

I can help you with the issue on your computer. I suggest you to perform a System Restore on your computer and check if the restarting issue gets fixed. To access the Restore point, type “rstrui” in the Run command (Windows Key + R key on the keyboard). In case if you don’t have any restore points or restoring does not help you fix the issue, try the following:

>> Download and install the Norton Power Eraser from the webpage

>> Once the application is downloaded, double click it to scan your computer for viruses.

>> Norton Power Eraser is an aggressive tool which can eliminate infections from your computer.

>> Once the Norton tool completes scanning your computer, it will ask you to reboot your computer.

>> This should fix all the virus related issue on your computer.

>> Just in case if the Norton Power Eraser tool cannot complete the scanning, try running the application in Safe Mode with Networking.

Thanks and regards,

Skarbos Jay.
