If you are running XP or Vista, you can try doing a system restore to a date just before you deleted the files.
Depending on your OS, click on START>HELP AND SUPPORT and look for the heading that says System restore.
You will not lose any documents or emails that were created or recieved between the restore point and current.

Every time I turn my laptop on something always pops up saying there alot of things wrong with I't how can I make it stop

That is called Ransom-ware. You need to remove it. There is actually nothing wrong with your computer except this Malware will be slowing it down!

Download the free version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware.

Execute the file and when the program opens, Update it. Then run the program. Delete (Quarantine) everything it finds.

Then boot your computer to Safe Mode. This is usually achieved by tapping F8 as the computer is booting up. Run the program again, this time doing a full scan. It may take an hour or more. Delete everything it tells you too.

Reboot normally.

Let me know how you get on and if it fixes the popups. After that we can use another free program to clear all the junk off your computer, but let's fix the Malware first.

Can't load photo on to FB, extremely slow, have to login each time even when I mark "leave me logged in, flickers...

Hmmm, Well the virus protection slows the computer down more than any other program, as it is attached to everything in the system. Try these steps: Go to the start menu then to run and click on run. type in msconfig this will bring up the startup menu. Click on startup, then, Uncheck tools in start up menu( these items appear in the toolbar at the far lower right of the screen on the taskbar) that you don't absolutely need on startup. Select selective start up after deselect startup items. Click apply, a window will pop up that says windows startup has been changed. Select do not show this box again and then OK. Delete browsing history and cookies. Go to C:\ windows/ temp files/ and select all, then hit the delete key. Movies and pics and music take up a lot of disk space and can slow down you unit, so load your music and pics. on a disk or usb drive which is better for safekeeping anyway. Manage your add ons in the settings menu on you homepage, they will still be available but not active. Disable add ons, they slow down your unit. I would also run a complete scan of you computer, there is always a chance that you have a virus. Mke sure you update regularly, and I suggest the manual install so you don't get the extras that they add in. Also check and see if you have unwanted browsers or programs that you do not use and are not a vital component and delete or remove through add remove programs in the control panel. Good luck I hope this solves your problem. Please post a solved comment on fixya Let me know how you make out and please feel free to get back if you need more advice.

Computer is full of virus

Remove all the junk files/software/unused items from system memory/Control Panel. When this is done, clean all associated registry/cache codes with the help of Ccleaner software. Now restore your system to the date when it worked fine and then perform a complete system scan with the help of some good antivirus software such as Norton, Immunet Plus, Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Avast, Avira, Panda, Comodo etc. Virus threads will be detected and quarantined.

I have a virus and i am want to know how to put my machine back to the original settings i have the os disc still it is an emachine serial number e3031.

Hi Kevmak13,
Before you re-install your operating system, you might want to try a few things to remove the infections. First, try booting up in safemode with networking. You can do this by tapping the F8 key immediately after pressing the power button to boot-up. Choose safemode with networking and wait for the computer to be up and running. Download malwarebytes' from here:
Install and run a quick scan. When it's done scanning, click "show results" and make sure that all boxes are checked and remove them all. After this, do not restart the computer yet. Go to the quarantine tab and delete all quarantined items. Exit malwarebytes' and restart your computer.
I hoe this helps, Cheers

My internet speed is really slow. What can i do to speed it up?

mcdevito75 here, Many things can slow up yours or any internet, Try this, from your desktop, click on RE-CYCLE bin and emty it, form your home page, right click tools (top of page) now cerefully, CAREFULLY read every word and delete cookies, and other items you really don"t need right now, check the box next to each item, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DELETEING ANY THING. After this, from your home page, type in search, Super Anti Spy Ware, they have a free version that I run every day to get rid of potential viruses and internet ads that slow up your computer, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE YOU DO ANTHING. If your not comfortable with doing these things with your computer You may be new to doing these computer functions, then from Start, lower left side of screen, click start, the Help and support, they too can help with internet speed. READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DOING ANY THING WITH YOUR COMPUTER.
