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 Recovery Virus has made all of my files hidden and I am having a hard time accessing ANY of my commands even safe mode at this point. I just need a little assistance on what I can do to restore...


use this data recovery program to scan your computer and then recover your files.

This software scans all storage space on computer and then join pieces together to recover files. So even virus affected your file table, and put virus to boot sector, the program can still be used to recover your files.

If i have a virus on my computer and I format my C drive..that might help to get rid of it right?


You are right, but if it didn't infect only your C drive, then you are still not 100% secured and cleaned. I would suggest you to run full system scan using an updated antivirus program. There are many free antivirus programs which are very effective. You can try Avira Free (click HERE to download). Scanning will take time, but it's better to waste time than wasting data and having a virus infected computer.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Daughter can not open any document and doc on flash drive, says there are zero files when trying to open, but if you do to control panel it says there are files on the flash drive


This sounds like a virus deed. There is a virus that attacks Office files and basically wipes their content.
Make sure you have a secure system, clean of viruses, trojans and any security holes (here's how I do it). Then, get some free data recovery application and try to restore/copy the files off the USB key. Here's a list of free tools http://free-backup.info/data-recovery-software.htm. I've used Easeus to save 1.5TB of data, so I know it works well. But you may want to try them all out and see which one does the job best.

Hi I was just wondering... If I have a virus or a few on my Dell vostro 1000 laptop that caused me to be unable to get windows updates or anti-virus updates which disabled or eat my anti-virus software...


Yes it would be better to save your data to an external hard drive or flash memory stick. Remember to scan the this data before you copy them back onto your laptop, if the data files are infected with viruses you will infect your laptop again.
If is best to re-install Windows, the installation process will allow you to delete the old partition, create a new partition and then select a full NTFS format, do not do a quick format.

My computer seems to be infected by the Backdoor, Tidse virus. I have Norton/Symantec anti-virus. Every time I start up the computer, Symantec tells me that a restart is required. Then I restart & it...


Your best bet is to reimage the machine. Even if you get rid of the virus you also get rid of the file(s) it infected. That means those files are no longer available to run and they typically are critical system files. Viruses will hide and then repopulate if you don't completely format and put a clean image on the system. Because you probably don't want to loose all of your data you will want to back it up. Here is another problem because some of that data could be infected as well. I recommend removing the hard drive and use another computer that has a good anti-virus system, backing up your data to another device. Be sure to check your email files because they can bring a virus into your system. Chasing a virus can be frustrating and ultimately unsuccessful. Bite the bullet and give yourself a clean system.

I got a virus, knocked out internet and disk defragmenter


No virus program is 100% able to get rid of viruses. Some viruses are easily removed and able to be resolved, but others are not. You may need to do a reimage of your operating system. Save all data and make sure that once you have reimaged and reconfigured your OS, you do a virus scan on your data to make sure that remnants of the virus did not transfer to your files.
