If you mean factory restore the answer is yes because the drive is formatted and wipes everything on it and reinstall as if new.

The answer really is antivirus/spyware programme, install and run this free AVG 8 programme (make sure you download the free version) and see if it is detected

My laptop window vista is having problem to open the window suddenly Iam unable open my computer or any window prog So pls suggest me the error


While the computer is powering press F8 in 1 seconds intervals until you get the Advanced boot menu.
Select Safe Mode with Networking and press enter
Once it is booted up try to navigate around. If it is running at normal speeds, I would say your computer is infested with viruses If it is still running really slow and won't open anything I would say you need to wipe out the computer and re-install windows. Most likely your operating system is corrupted You can try the following to fix operating system problems without a re-install
Open a command prompt (Windows Key, then type cmd ) Type chkdsk /f hit enter, it will tell you the drive is locked do you want to run on next boot. Press Y and enter.
Type sfc /SCANNOW then hit enter. Let it run though and then reboot your computer for the chkdsk to run.
If it is still really slow in safe mode then it's a re-install of windows

IF NOT SLOW IN SAFE MODE (Do this) You can try and clean up viruses in safe mode with the following free programs Run the Full Scan and remove any viruses/spyware you find MalwareBytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) SpyBot (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html) Spyware Doctor (http://www.pctools.com/compare/protection/?ref=spyware_doctor_antivirus_compare_winningchallenger&gclid=CN2rsMjwlasCFQJOgwodCUtevw)
Are just a few.
I typically run through about 12 different programs on an infected computer. Then you would want to purchase some good antivirus These are the Top 3 http://www.webroot.com/En_US/index.html http://usa.kaspersky.com/ http://www.bitdefender.com/

How remove "Vista Anti Spyware 2011" on my system


I suggest you boot your computer into 'Safe Mode with Networking". This can be done by:
-rebooting computer or turning it on if it is currently off
-when you see the bios screen begin tapping 'F8'
-this should eventually bring up a black screen with white text
-choose Safe Mode with Networking

While in safe mode you shouldn't get any pop-ups from Vista AntiSpyware. You should now download the free version of MalwareBytes. Install and allow it to update. Now run a full scan and have it fix any problems that it finds. Reboot your computer and hopefully everything is back to normal.

This has worked on some computers in the past, but this type of virus/malware can sometimes be difficult to get rid of. If this doesn't work you may have to back up all your personal files to another drive and restore/reinstall the operating system.

Hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have any questions or need any further help

My dell laptop inspiron was giving me a malware virus alert update, and was obviously infected with a virus, and slowly but surely crashed, now it won't boot at all, it gets to the dell screen, and then to...


You will have to try booting from your Operating System CD and "Repair Windows." Once you get the computer up and running, you should boot into Safe Mode and install "SUPER AntiSpyware," "AVAST Home Free" and Spyware Blaster (links below). These will have to be downloaded from another computer because you will not have access to internet while in Safe Mode. After installing all three, reboot the computer, booting into Safe Mode once again, and run the three programs.

I got a virus (I believe it was a trojan horse), I removed it my self, but now my computer is slow, and I can only use Opera as an internet browser (I'm using it right now). I was wondering how to reboot...


Without a proper antivirus, your computer remains vulnerable to various malware, spyware, spam, rootkits, Trojan horses, and other viruses. Keyloggers and rootkits attack your PC and start destroying and corrupting the Windows registries. A corrupt Windows registry disturbs and slows down the processing of your computer. Hence, you suffer slow speed and hanging problems while working on the computer.
Avira AntiVir Professional is an excellent program to detect and remove any virus or malware threat. With advanced heuristic analysis and detection technology, the software application keeps checking for malpractices that might be carried in your computer.

How to reboot an advent computer to get rid of viris


Virus are never removed by rebooting a computer, unless by "rebooting" you mean re-initializing or re-installing the operating system.
Virus, spyware, malware, etc. can be removed by using the (free) Microsoft Security Essential software. Find out more and download it from:

I get runD1132 error every time I open up PC


RUNDLL32 is the Microsoft Windows program that loads DLLs into memory so
that they can be used by specific programs or by Windows. This behavior
could be associated with a programs not responding properly or is associated
with spyware programs and viruses. Anti-virus software and firewalls do not
fully protect your system against the majority of spyware and privacy
threats. Spyware is commonly bundled with software downloads, attached to
e-mails, or transmitted through networks so it can appear to be legitimate
software, but once installed it can be nearly impossible to detect and
remove without the help of a dedicated spyware removal tool such as:

Ad-Aware 6.0 (build 6.181)
http://www.lavasoftusa.com

SpyBot 1.3
http://www.safer-networking.org/

SpyWare Blaster
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html/

HiJackThis
http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

Please make sure that you download the updates for each of these programs to
ensure complete detection of known spyware programs. Although nothing is
absolute in removing spyware and keeping it off, downloading and executing
the programs above can dramically decrease future infections.

Also please utilize free virus scans from the following sites:

Trend Micro
http://www.trend.com

Bit Defender
http://www.bitdefender.com

Panda
http://www.pandasoftware.com/

McAfee
http://www.vil.nai.com/vil/stinger

After Spyware / Adware is remove, you may get an error finding files on
reboot

After you use anyone of these programs (with the exception of HiJackThis)
you may receive an error of some sort after rebooting your system. This is
pretty common. Many spyware programs add themselves in the Startup location
and execute when Windows boots. If you recieve an error when rebooting after
removing spyware, do not panic. This is more than likely a startup remnant
trying to access the spyware program that is no longer on your computer.
HiJackThis is a great utility to find and remove these startup remnants.
However, there is a less technical way of removing these items:

(1) Click START to RUN and type: msconfig
(2) Select the STARTUP tab
(3) Uncheck the file that pertained to the startup error message you
received
(4) Click APPLY and OK
(5) Reboot your system

If this fails to fix the startup error message after reboot, there are still
options:

(1) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup
(2) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(3) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup
(4) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(5) Reboot your system

My ibm netvista 6270 reboot evry time !! my mothercard is ms 6188 pIII 64 Mo


There could be several things wrong but with the information provided, I am going to say that you have a virus and/or spyware. Run a complete scan on system with both antivirus and spyware remover. Rid of all spyware. If you have Limewire, delete it and reboot. This should stop the computer from rebooting.
