I'm unsure how to restore my Acer Aspire 5810t to Factory Settings


Hello,

just to clarify: Restoring a computer to its original factory settings also cleans up the C drive and removes all the viruses and old programs that bog down a computer and make it slow and unresponsive. You can do it by following steps below:

  1. Click Start -> Programs -> Acer Recovery Management, a dialg box will pop up
  2. Click Restore, then Restore Sysyem to Factory Default
  3. A warning box will pop up, read it carefully, and in case you really want to restore your factory settings, press Yes
  4. As a last, just press Start

Why acer aspire one d255 run so slow, shut down so slow


System recovery is only really needed if you have malware infections that can't be removed by anti-malware programs or if you've had your computer for years and never bothered to clear out the rubbish that accumulates over time. If you clean your computer and scan for malware regularly (once a week for both) then you should be able to delay having to use System Recovery. I use my computer A LOT and use System Recovery about every 2 years.
Here are some links for cleaning software and anti-malware that are all excellent products and totally free :

1/. http://www.piriform.com/CCLEANER
Run cleaner then registry - fix issues

2/. http://advanced-systemcare.en.softonic.com/download
Run deep care cleaner, then open Toolbox and run Ram cleaner deep scan, then minimise. Get to know the toolbox, it does some amazing things.

3/. http://download.cnet.com/Auslogics-Disk-Defrag/3000-2094_4-10567503.html?part=dl-6267754&subj=dl&tag=button
Analyse your hard drive then defragment & optimise.

4/. http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button
Run scan for malware and follow instructions if any is discovered.

If you use the 2 cleaners and the malware scanner once a week your system will function well. The cleaners take a few minutes & the malware scanner about 30 mins.
You should only need to use the defrag once a month. This takes about 30 mins.

If you've used these and there is no major improvement then System Recovery is your only option.
Don't forget to reload all of these tool after System Recovery and use them regularly as I've recommended & you will keep your computer running really well.

I hope this helps.

My mini netbook has virus and it is not letting me to open anything. i have macafee on it, but still unable to do perform anything. How i can remove the virus from netbook? OR how can i restore it to...


Be sure your firewall is activated. You can chose to use the windows firewall pre-installed on your Netbook or you can activate the firewall in you anti-virus package.
Run a cleaning software designed for detecting spyware on a regular basis to maintain Netbook processing speed and to remove items picked up by your Netbook while surfing the web. CCleaner is a solid free version of spyware cleaner.
If you suspect malware on your computer because it is running slowly, has strange pop ups or the anti-virus software detects it, then download software designed to find spyware and eliminate spyware. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, A-squared Free and SuperAntiSpywate Free are free versions of adware removal tool to consider. These tools get rid of spyware when used individually or in tandem. Continue to run the software until all spyware, viruses and malware are removed.

Running slow - want to restore factory settings


In some cases, when the laptop first starts booting you'll see an option something like 'Press F11 for system restore'. If your laptop doesn't show this option on boot, the only way to reinstall the operating system is with the installation disks. Alternatively, you could scan your computer for viruses, run a disk defragmentation by opening up the 'My Computer' icon, right clicking on your storage drive and selecting 'Properties'. Once in the properties menu select the 'Tools' tab at the top and run the disk defragmentor. If it doesn't run properly, run the 'Error Checking' utility from the same menu.
Also be sure that your hard drive isn't completely full, as Microsoft operating systems use a part of your free space as paging memory.

Slow computer -how to restore a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v1000


If the units are running slow, you can do some maintenance on them to speed them up.

First, run defragmenter on both units.(in Safe mode)

Download ScrubXP which will automatically clear your temp, cookies and TIF files.

Download CCleaner and run it.

Run your Anti-virus program: download the free version of AVG. (Great virus protection.)

Other programs to use are SpyBlaster and Winpatrol, all of which are free.
This should help, if you feel that you need to format and restore the units, youcan do so. But try this first.

High Speed and viruses


Slowness can be caused by viruses.

Run a virus scan and see what comes up.
If there are viruses on the computer, you may want to consider Restoring your computer to factory settings.

But before you do that
Run a virus scan; go to Symantec and run it or download AVG free.

If you decide to restore to factory settings, I will be glad to help you. Understand, you will loose everything on the computer, and you will have to run all your programs again, set up your network connection and email. Very time consuming.
