If you format your hard drive, this will erase everything on it. Your best bet is just to re-install the operating system, which will automatically format your hard drive in the process.
To prevent this problem in the future, I suggest getting a much better anti-virus suite such as AVG Internet Security suite or an equivilant. Good luck.

Sony VAIO PCV-RZ54G PC Desktop keyboard errors in event viewer


The I8042prt.sys is a system function driver found in Microsoft Windows 2000 and later versions for PS/2-style keyboard and mouse devices. If I8042PRT.sys is disabled or missing from the Registry this could be the cause. First check in Device Manager, a black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field appears next to these devices?

See if you can update the driver.

Lets check your registry. Here is the key: HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ i8042prt:Imagepath=System32\Drivers\i8042prt.sys
It should be there can you check to see if it's still there? Here's how:

Click Start > Run > Type: regedit

When Registry editor opens expand local machine> system >CurrentControlSet> Services> (Scroll down till you see i8042prt and click on it.

And tell me what the data entries for Start (should be 1)

Then expand the i8042prt key and select "Parameter" tell me in detail listed for the layer drivers; exactly what you see then select "Enum" Tell me if you see a file name "1" and data: ACPI\PNP0F13\4&1506bb2e&0

We might have to enable or add the port.

I'd suggest running a repair if you have your windows installation disk or do System Restore in Safe Mode, if unable to do it in Normal Mode.

Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, pick a Restore Point before your problem started (if there's a restore point that goes further back prior to your malware issue I'd suggest that restore point)

Here's how to access system restore:
Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc

If that doesn't fix it you might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:
http://majorgeeks.com/Kaspersky_TDSSKiller_d6895.html

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

If none of the above works you should seriously think about switching to a USB mouse and USB keyboard. The i8042prt.sys driver is ancient and it only controls PS/2 mice and keyboards (Doesn't affect anything else).

What do u when your system is rebooting on its own


If your system is rebooting on its own then first step is to make sure that your system is free from viruses.The best way to check it is run a scan on your system with a good and updated anti virus.

If any viruses found then the best option is you can format your system.
After scanning if viruses are not found then the best option is to repair your system .

Repairing your system will not affect your data.

Thanks..

If your system is affected with viruses then first try to scan the system with a good and updated antivirus,if you are not satisfied with the result then take important data as backup in any other storage device and format your system.
Then your problem will be fixed.

Trojan on HDD want to Zero out and reinstall OS


Just to make sure of a few things, you actually want to install windows 98 when you could install windows XP? and the other thing is that you do not need to acutally "Zero" the drive out -as in writing zeros to all sectors- formatting it will suffice to remove a virus.

Need restoring my operating system. I have several viruses Can yo help


Hi jtspecprod,

You can restore your os, however, I have to ask, not to be rude mind you, what is your level of expertise in DOS. The reason I ask is that fdisk is a DOS operation and you kinda need to know a little about DOS, not a lot, just a little. If you really do have several viruses, reinstalling your os or rolling your computer back through system restore will not get rid of the viruses, they like to embed themselves in things like HIMEM or worse, your BIOS. Hit me back on how technical I need to be to get you through this problem. If your infected really bad you may have to consider professional help in the form of a repairman. We have those resources here at FixYa.com through our repairman registry, then again, I just may be cheaper to get another computer. I know this isn't the news you wanted to hear, but it is my honest opinion.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7
