When infected by adware, malware or virus, restoring is not a solution. They won't be removed. Best option will be to format c: drive and have fresh installation.

Do not download any other virus softwre that is not veryfied, many of them are virus.

Install Spybot that is one of the most powerful anti malaware. If it does not work, have the hard drive formatted and system reinstalled.

Pop-ups on my laptop


The anti-virus popups are a virus, If you have an anti-virus loaded on your PC then you need to either update it or call the customer support for the anti-virus and have them help you get all the adware and malware off your system. If you have a free anti-virus, then you need to remove it and load something better, like maybe windows defender or Microsoft security essentials, which are free full version antivirus programs, then load MBAM (malwarebytes.org) and run a full scan on your system. Sometimes if the popups are bad enough, it would just be better to do a new re-install of the whole system and start from scratch.

Can't get Latitude D630 to go into safemode because of FBI virus


It looks like you may have to go about it differently.
If you press F8 and go onto the DOS menu, you will be able to access an earlier time by choosing the restore option. The viru is a windows based virus and will not affect the menu. If you cannot access the menu, I would download Symantecs' Norton Antivirus, and run that.

Factory system restore


The System Restore tool built into Microsoft Windows allows you to dial the operating system back to an earlier time without deleting any of your files.
The Dell OptiPlex 755 has a few features that can affect a restoration to your system and get you running again if your system is not behaving as it should.
Use the Dell PC Restore tool is a last resort option, as the operation wipes all the data on your computer and returns it to its original condition.

Click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools" and "System Restore."
Choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time," then click the most recent date on the calendar in bold print. Select a restore point from the list, then click "Next."

Accept the warning and click "Next." The restore process restarts your computer; check to see that the problem is solved after the computer restarts.
If not, you can restore back further.
Follow the steps again, going to the next most recent restore date, until the problem is resolved.

PC Restore

Power off the computer. Turn on the computer, and while it's booting, hold down "Ctrl" and press "F11" in Windows XP or "F8" in Windows Vista or later.


Click "Restore" then "Confirm" in Windows XP.
In Windows Vista and later, click "Repair your Computer," then "Next." Log in with a username and password.
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next."
Confirm that you want to reformat the hard drive, then click "Next."


Click "Finish" when the button appears.
Your computer reboots, with the operating system nowrestored to the same state it was in when the computer was new.

Hi,

Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.
