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

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.

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.

I purchased the AVG Anti-virus & anti- spyware cd


Installing AVG might not be able to solve your spyware problem.

You could try downloading free mbam:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe

Double-click and install it. Then run it. Click the Scan button, It will detect and remove the Spyware Guard 2008

After clicking on OK button for scan is complete, you need to click the Remove Selected button when the malwares are listed.

Let the computer reboot if mbam needs that.
Then try installing AVG.

Just in case, you could also try booting from the AVG CD. If it's bootable, it will be able to scan your computer without the need to boot in to windows. Try it too.

Reboot


Congrats on the fixing it yourself. Just for future reference I would suggest AVG for your anti virus. It is free and it does not slow your system down as much. If you google Free AVG you will find where to download it. Also if you run spybot search and destroy it will prevent a lot of spyware that will lead to these types of virus' on your computer.
