    hi thanks! I will see if I can get one, does it have to be compact presario v4000 OS disc or are there other discs that can reload the laptop? And am I right in thinking that OS disc is the disc you need to completely reload the laptop? thanks

You would have to either borrow a disc from a freind, or buy the disc yourself.

    Well theres two different disc you'll need. You'll need whatever OS disc you had so Windows XP Or Vista or Linux. Depends on what you had. Then you need your labtops motherboard disc that has all the drivers for your motherboard.

Windows security alert keeps popping up. antivirus software alert keeps popping up. have mcafee antivirus but it says application cannot be executed. file is infected.


Hi,
Sounds like you have a XP virus. Turn your computer on and go into "safe mode with networking". once connected to the internet go to cnet.com. Go to the download tab for windows. Then download and install "malwarebytes".
Install the program and run it, this should take out the malware. If succesful, go to your computer icon, right click and then select properties. Turn of system restore and restart your computer. This will remove all the nasties. Remember to turn on system restore after this is completed.

My computer started up normally, then nothing.


Hi,

It sounds like you have a virus riddled computer as well as no Anti virus protection either.

Try and get your desktop back this way >>>>>

Start task manager, in the top right hand corner of the window you will see File, click on that. Where it say's new task (Run), click on that and type in the box explorer and then hit the enter key.

Hopefully your desktop icons and task bar will return.

If they do return you will need to obtain some anti virus software.


You can get AVG 9 Free here >>>>>>>>





http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11014801






Download and install this excellent free software and then perform a deep scan of the system for any and all viruses, malware and spyware.




If you can't get the desktop icons to return post back here straight away and tell me what operating system you are using, like XP, Win 2000/98 for example.


Good luck.

McAffe security protection. Compaq Presario XP


Hi,
The Windows Firewall is different from MCafee Security Centre. And if it has a X on it that means Ur MCafee Protection is disabled or May be expired.
To Check that, Just click on the MCafee Icon on the desktop or on the botton right hand corner, and check if its disabled or u needs to renew it.

Thank You,

You can get drivers from manufacturer's website by specifying model and make of your desktop PC. Before formatting try some good Anti Virus utility which may solve your problem without any bigger task.

Well, your problem seems to be due to a virus attack. Certain virus disable your task manager. To solve this, scan your computer with a good antivirus software and remove the virus. But in most cases you won't be able to restore the task manager with the antivirus application. So the best method is to backup your documents on the the drive where OS is installed and reinstall your OS.
