There is only one way to restore this system, you will have to take the hard drive out and hook it up into another desktop and install windows 98/me or 2k to it and then put the drive back into the compaq more than likely you will have to download drivers for it as well

Hi i need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings as i am getting rid if it and don't want to leave my personal information on it


You don't have to go thru all that trouble to get rid of your personal information. First just create a new user account with administrative rights that the person who is getting your computer will use. After you create the new user account reboot the computer and log on with the new account you created. Then Delete your old user account. It will delete all your documents, music, pictures, videos.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts then create the new user account with Administrative Rights (not limited).

Reboot and and log on with the user account you just created.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Account and select the account you want to delete and Delete it. When asked about files to save, you want to delete everything associated with the account you are deleting.

If you have more than one user account you want to delete, do the same thing for it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Norton has a habit of being so good that it interferes with some normal activities. Should you wish to uninstall a Norton product and if at all possible, download and run the Norton Removal Tool. Soon as the Norton Product is un-installed, remove the remaining Symantec folders in Common Shared folders. Thereafter, pls follow below procedures:
  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer.
  2. Delete the program installation folders for all Symantec program that were installed.
  3. If you accepted the defaults, the installation folders will be in C:Program Files and will have the name of the program that you installed.
Below listed are the default program folder names and locations listed by program:
  • C:Program FilesNorton Internet Security
  • C:Program FilesNorton SystemWorks
It would help to configure Windows to show all files.
  • Click on "Windows Key" and select Control Panel
  • Double click on Folder options.
  • Click on View Tab
  • Un-check "Hide file extensions for known file types."
  • Under the "Hidden files" folder, click "Show hidden files and folders."
  • Click on Apply
  • Click on OK.
Having performed the above, search for and delete all Symantec folders.
  1. Click on "Windows Key" and select Computer.
  2. Double click on C Drive
  3. Go to the following locations and delete the following folders.
  • c:Program FilesNorton Internet Security

and delete all the 3 folders.

Finish by cleaning up the Registry:

CAUTION: you must back up the registry before you make any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify only the keys that are specified.
  • Click Start and then Run.
  • Type REGEDIT into the Run dialog box when it comes up and then click OK.
  • The Registry Editor will open.
  • Navigate to and select the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESymantec

I WANT TO DELETE MY OS


Hi Sunbreeze,

there are two ways doing that.

1. Boot on your OS disk and chose overwrite
2. Start/run/ - type cmd, in the black boks, type format c:
and when the system say "cant do - do you want to do it when you reboot" (or in that area) - you choose yes.
then reboot.

But, remember, there is no way back, so dont forget to copy all documets, photos an private stuff.

/Teis

If this was helpful, then dont forget to vote "FixYa" :-)

I use Windows Vista with Windows Mail. I have an email in the inbox which I cannot open, or delete and cannot drag into any other box i.e., into the Spam, Junk or Deleted box. I would add, I was much...


1. Make sure your antivirus or any other security programs have all of their email scanning options turned off. The emailscaning option is a redundant feature.
NOTE: These scanning options can corrupt Windows Mail entire message folder, or the entire message store, when it attempts to remove a message it thinks contains a potential virus. You will still be protected against infection with the antivirus program's system protection. These email scans can also cause problems with opening attachments in Windows Mail to.

2. Download Windows Vista upate from location below,

Log in as administrator, it usally does not have a password on it.

Then go to users and remove the password. Log in as that user and change the password to what you want.

If there is a password on the administator, then write back and we will go from there.
