have a virus on my toshiba laptop, can i resolve this by restoring the factory settings?


Hi Andrewfairwa.

Yes, you may remove all the security threats in the Computer by restoring it to the Factory settings.

But, restoring the Computer to the Factory settings will also delete the Data in the Hard Drive.

Hence, you may try performing a Complete System Scan to check for any Virus or security threats.

You may perform the Complete System Scan by using the Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer.

If you have not installed any Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer, you may perform a online System Scan.

Let me provide the detailed steps to perform the online System Scan.

You may perform the free Online Scan by visiting the below link:

http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html

Please open the above link and click on "Start Scanner".

This will start the free Online System Scan.

Once the Scan is complete, check if the Virus or any security threats are removed from the Computer.

If there are still any threats, then you may backup all the important Data and restore the Computer to the Factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

The browser is a weak link in the security structure of most systems. Even with virus scanners and internet security firewalls they are still the weak link because of the design considerations that allow them to do so much. While it may not solve the issue running a virus, spyware , adware scans would not be a bad idea in this case.

Online scanners such as those identified below can provide valuable second opinions on occasion.

Sites like Trend Micro, Panda, Symantec and others have online scanners that remove viruses. You might want to start with Internet Explorer and www.f-secure.com and search for online scanner -- I believe the first link returned is the online scanner. They have a beta version for Vista and either the beta or the version on the page works for WIndows XP. You can click a start scanning at the bottom of the page for which ever version you use Beta or not.

allow the activeX
Install the Active X
Click Accept
Click Custom Scan
click Scan All Files
click scan inside archives
click start

When it is done which will take a while -- you will be given the option to remove any malware it finds.

The other companies above have similar options on their web sites.

There are several free scanners that look got adware and the like.

www.lavasoft.com has both a free and commercial product -- the free product requires you to scan your own machine perioducally.
