Dell inspiron 6000 XP has been infected by a virus.How do I erase the virus from my laptop without having to resort to buying the required software from an online software company thats probably cause


Well,if you don't want to buy a software to erase it,then you should have to reinstall your operating system,delete all partition,and INSTALL AN ANTIVIRUS
try AVG antivirus,it's FREE and easy to update,don't want to buy something don't you?
P.S it's hard to restore a computer which is already infected without reinstalling the operating system

When i turn on my laptop it ask for a password in blue and then there is a blinking curser and black screen it wont do anything after that unless i press f2 reapeatedly or f12 but i cant fix nothing on the...


There are two types of password:
1. BIOS password. To remove the BIOS password, the solution is, remove the BIOS battery. Location of the BIOS battery, the bottom of the laptop. So you have to unscrew the bottom of the laptop, find the BIOS battery and release approximately 7 seconds, then plug it back. Then, turn on the laptop, enter the BIOS by pressing F2, do the setting the date, time, etc.

2. Password Log on. When turning on the laptop, and log on, then we are asked to enter a password, but we never give password to log on. However, when we enter the password, always fails, it means the virus-infected operating system (operating system has been controlled by a virus). These cases often I meet, the Windows XP operating system is infected with the virus. The solution is to reinstall the operating system. Repair operating system, or breaking into password virus, I've tried, but always failed. So, the best solution is to reinstall the operating system.

If you are using Windows 7, you can fix with, insert the Windows operating system CD, then boot from the CD Room. Solutions you can do:

1.
Boot from CD Room, select Next - select Repair your computer - Next - select System Image Recovery

2. Boot from CD Room - select Next - select Install now - check the "I accept the license terms" - Next - select Custom (advanced). Then, select the drive where you installed windows - Next. Wait for your operating system install process to complete. Then enter your user name, etc.

After entering the desktop, don't open drive C, D, E, F, because the drive is still infected with the virus. All you have to do is, connect your laptop to the Internet, download anti-virus. You can use free anti-virus (Avira or AVG), then anti-virus updates. After the update is complete, do a virus scan, drive C, D, E, F. If a virus is detected, Primary action = repair, Secondary action = delete.


After drive C, D, E, F clean from viruses, you can open the drive C, D, E, F. You don't have to worry about losing data, because Windows 7, will backup your data in a folder Windows.old. In Windows.old folder, there are three folders: Program files, Users, Windows. Data stored in My Documents, can be found in the Users folder.

Windows wont start up when computer is turned on, at the bottom of the screen, it just says press f for set up or tab for bios memo, then the screen will be blank with just a cursor blinking


Hi there! Your computer shows a blinking cursor after the start up is sometimes caused by an incompatible app that is in your computer. Now try this steps so we can check on what's causing it. Restart your computer then start pressing f8 then select safe mode now it should load you up to the repair mode of your computer if it loaded up w/o any problem then that means there's no problem with the computer it's just one of the things loading up when your computer starts that's causing the problem. If your using windows xp press start>run>then type ms config then go to the tab that says start up you'll need to disable one or two of the items this part is a trial and error because you need to find out which one is causing a problem and you don't have to worry because you could always enable the things you disabled the same way.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

If you want to clean up your pc of viruses, Trend Micro's free online virus scanner 'Housecall' is a good way to do it.

If you want to find the serial number of your Windows installation so you can reinstall, download the 'Magic Jellybean Keyfinder' - it works well.

Your system is infected by trojan,

Scan your System with a good Anti-Virus like Kaspersky Internet security 2010 or A-Squared Anti-malware with lastest updates installed.Both can detect trojan as well as malware,spyware etc.

This will solve your problem.

Reformating Laptop


Pierre jas:
What diffiulty you are facing in reformatting? You should just put the CD (the original OS CD which came with the laptop and restart the laptop). If you do not have the CD you an just simply put in any operating system CD in and restart the laptop and follow the steps. Make sure when it ask you to perform a quick formatting just select NTFS formatting. Note: I would suggest to back up all your important documents before you do that as everting will be gone once you reformat your hard drive. If your machine is shutting down before it let you save anything, on the command prompt simply put the command 'shutdown -a ' quickly save your work to an external hard drive and after that you can reinstall your OS(operating system).
Hope that helped!

Computer is infected with viruses


Blue screens as a result of infection mean the virus has corrupted the operating system. You can fix it by doing an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Depending on the virus, this may only be a temporary fix. If this turns out to be a temporary fix, then the sure way to fix it is to completely wipe the hard drive, completely reformat using NTFS, and reload the operating system, which I would recommend. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the virus damaged the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

Computer laptop problem


Generally, when a firewall or antivirus application fails to load, a virus is the suspect cause. Many viruses are designed to attack/disable the firewall/antivirus as to infect the system. If the operating system has beenn compromised to the point you can only boot in the safe mode, the likelyhood of removing the viruses and still being able to repair the operating system WITHOUT a clean reinstall of Windows is not great.

Things you can try.
  1. If you have more than one computer, see if you can connect this drive to a healthy system, and remove the infection.
  2. Run hardware diagnostics on the hard drive, as a hardware failure can mimic a software problem by files being damaged writing them to bad sectors of the media.
  3. If you can access the internet in safe mode with networking, or can access internet with another system, you can download several programs/tools to try to remove any infections. www.gur,in is one page with a large assortmant of tools to try to use to remove any infection. Sometimes you can install and run these in the safe mode or use safemsi.exe to enable some installers to run in the safe mode.
If the hard drive fails diagnostics then you will have to replace the hard drive. If it passes diagnostics, and attempts to remove infection fail, boot to XP cd, format the hard drive and do a clean install of windows the reinstall all drivers and applicaitons. If the format fails, replace the hard drive

Reformate


boot to a bott disk if it is an older system which it appers to be type format c: /u/s at the command prompt. (the flashing thing it will look different depending on brand and os most are just a flashing line. you should take the extra step to typing fdisk and deleting the partitions and creating newones. This utility is pretty self explanitory when you are in it. I can giude you through it if you need it. You need to run the fdisk at the command prompt.

If it is newer software like XP it will come up with a option when booting frok the cd while reinstalling. Choose dlete partition and let it make a new one not just format the drive it will give you more safttey because some viruses can write them selves into the boot sector and escape a format.
