Response to System Restore

So, that means I would have to re-install Windows, anti-virus programs, etc. Is there anything I can try before doing this?

Nope you don't need to install any windows at all.I'll explain.See if the PC is restoring it to the previous date lets take 1st August then it will just restore it back to that date with all the softwares which were installed before 1st august and not after 1st august.

Let me know if you got my point..

If you can reboot to Safe Mode and select "Last Known Good Configuration" it will be best but if you can't then you have to completely shut- down and reboot with your Restore or Windows CD and select the options to do a "Repair"

Hi! I have previously had problems with AntiVirus (Norton once) being disabled by a virus which made it hard to start it going again. There are a lot of viruses do not show up on Norton,. You should install a spyware catcher such as Spyware Doctor. I have Stopzilla, (anti-spyware) and cannot yet comment about its helpfulness. They are not free but cost a lot less than Norton. A lot of people prefer AVG Grisoft Free as their Antivirus prpgram but we all need an anti spyware program !Because I get mainly spywares, and rarely viruses, I feel that Norton may be getting obsolete and not providing sufficient protection. I call them all, loosely speaking viruses

Your computer has crashed due to what i will call loosely a virus, it could be spyware trojan etc.

CLOSING PROGRAMS IN TASK MANAGER
What I'd do first it to go back to your task manager, and try to end the
processes and programs that you see running.
Can you see on topbar of task manager, there is a choice "programs" and one "processes".
See the running programs and processes, do you recognize any names there?
The virus may be one of the processes running there. Dont end them unless you know
what you are doing
End the programs you see running there. Try to do so slowly.one by one.
Things should get better once you have closed a lot of programs.
Its a very slow process and you need patience

If that does not work, you will need to restore to older settings and your
files and docs stored on hard drive will not get lost

SOFT RESET/SYSTEM RESTORE
You need to do a system restore.
How you do that depends on what make you have such as Dell, advent etc
Maybe you'll need to switch on, and while it is booting, press F12 or F10.
You will to check with the manufacturer how to do system restore. You can
find instruction manuals online etc.
Here your computer goes back to the way it was at a restore point created on a
previous restore date.

HARD RESET/RESTORE TO FACTORY SETTINGS
you probably wont need to do that. Your stored files and programs you have installed
will get wiped out.Unless they are super-important, let them go

Get back to me if you have more difficulties and i hope u found that to be of somehelp

Computer locked up and can't get into anything


Try starting in safe mode and remove the offending program.

  1. Start the laptop
  2. After the Dell Screen vanishes begin pressing F8
  3. You will get a Windows Startup Screen
  4. Select SafeMode and press enter twice
  5. Windows should load up
  6. Go into Control Panel Add Remove Programs
  7. Remove the anti virus software and anything else you suspect maybe causing grief.
  8. Restart the laptop normally and see what happens.
  9. Hopefully by now you will be able to go back and do the factory imaging.

HELP!!! Computer stopped working when anit-virus was installed?????


Assuming you are using windows xp. 1. Boot up into windows safe mode by pressing the "F8" key during boot process. 2. Choose "Safe Mode without networking" on the menu and after entering your desktop a pop-up will appear telling you that you are using windows safe mode, just press "OK" then uninstall Norton Anti-Virus. 3. Shut-down and/or reboot computer. Another alternative would be to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore. If you choose to do this, you still need to uninstall Norton Anti-Virus because a system restore will only fix just system files not programs that were installed. In other words, you will have a partial installation of Norton Anti-Virus in your computer. As to why this happened, could be a compatability issue with the use of Norton and some other program. Good luck.
