If you system restore points are not corrupted by the virus then you will be able to restore your pc.

For that Click Start-> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Click Restore my computer to an earlier time and click Next, then select a date from the calender, and click Next twice. A progress bar will show and the computer will restart automatically when the restoration is done. When the PC starts again, hopefully your problem will be cured. If not, tell the error if any

How to find factory settings partition


While many problems can be solved by less drastic measures, Compaq owners sometimes need to restore their computers back to factory new condition.


If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is struck with a persistent virus, restoring the PC to its original factory default settings is often the best way to deal with the problem.


While older Compaqs relied on restore CDs to restore factory settings, newer machines come with a recovery partition built into the unit.


Shut down the Compaq computer and wait for it to power off.

Press the "Power" button to restart it.


Press the "F11" key as soon as you see a black screen.

This will boot the Compaq into the recovery partition.


Follow the on-screen instructions to back up any user files before the recovery process begins.

Click "Next" to start the recovery manager and follow the on-screen instructions.


Hope this helps.

Hi, i hope you can help! My daughters e-machine shows ATTENTION! SPYWARE ALERT. It says the computer is infected by spyware. 34 serious threats have been found while scanning your files and registry. It...


Restart the computer, when you see the Emachine logo, tap F8
go to safe mode
Once in safe mode, go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools system restore
restore to 1 week previous that you downloaded the malware. The software that you are getting hit with is a virus itself called "Hijack Ware"- it basically holds your system hostage.

Now after that is done, go to a site like Avast! or AVG and install an antivirus (Both of those are free and reputable. I prefer Avast!)

Don't click and don't believe crud like those popups ever again.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

How do I restore my Dell desktop computer to the "out of box" condition?


turn pc off with the system cd in the drive and reboot to cd. It will ask if you want to repair or install. Just follow the prompts to do a full reinstall. It will ask if your sure, and that all data on drive will be lost. Click yes and it will uninstall and reinstall everything to factory settings. Then boot the driver cd, and it will let you know what drivers are needed for your pc.
Make sure that your cd drive in bios is the first to start and not the hard drive. You can change that later if you want but I leave the cd drive as first so if there is a problem, I can use the disk to boot from. Also, only leave mouse,keyboard,and monitor plugged in. Unplug printers, scanners, ect:
After that, make sure you do all the update's and have a good antivirus program installed. I use Avast free and love it. Don't run 2 virus program. They will cause a conflick, so if you have one on the disk from the restore,remove it from add/remove first.

Good luck, it's easy to do and much easier that removing some of the virus's out there, and fixing some of the hardware conflicks
