My compaq presario cq56 will not restore itself to factory default settings


U have a nasty bug in there. Your best bet is using another computer download the latest malwarebytes program onto a usb stick. Using the hiren disk boot up to the fake desktop, navigate to the usb stick via explorer and run the program and get the latest updates for it at same time. Then run it and clean out the crud that is in the machine causing havoc.When you reboot go back into the program and permanently remove the deleted items that are in the quarantine area.

Hi

Thank you for your query

I know you have tried entering safe mode, however please try this method to see if you can get in

Please try the following


1) Start Laptop
2) Continuously press the F8 key until a startup menu is repsented
3) Choose safe mode from the menu
4) Once safe mode has loaded up click on Start>Programs>Accesories>System Tools>System Restore
5) From system restore choose 'restore my computer to an earlier time'
6) From the calender presented please select a dat in bold lettering back a few weeks before this fault was seen
7) Choose the date and click next..............follow the instructions through

If the above fails and you still cant get in, then unfortunatley you will need to do a full reformat

I need assistance running the restore program I have a virus on my computer that is keeping my internet provider from cleaning computer


You didn't list your operating system but if its XP here is how to access "system restore".

Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools and then system restore.
Follow the prompts, choose a point to restore, and then the machine will reboot. Please make sure that during the restart not to power off.
Sometimes going back to a prior build will work and sometimes it won't.
If, after the reboot the restore failed you could try turning "system restore" off and then reboot and after the restart turn "system restore" back on. To do this right click on "My Computer", click on properties. In the new window click on the "System restore" tab.

Hope this helps.
