    Nightmare, same problem with DNS changer. Laptop unable to rid the computer of it and unable to do a reformatt because it comes back, who are these people that cause so much problems. Unable to update anything that could be possible of help and there seems to be no fix available. It also traveled to the desktop on the network, but I can just jnk the hard drive to rid it on that one,
    do't think I can do it on the laptop because of the drivers.

    I HAVE SOLVED THIS BY REPLACING MY ROUTER WITH A NEW ONE AND RESET MY IP ADDRESS ON MY PC. I ALSO HAD TO SCAN MY PC WITH MALWARE MALBYTE TO CLEAR THIS DNS CHANGER.



    I BELIEVE MY ROUTER HAD BEEN HACKED SO MY IP SETTING WAS WIPPED OF MY PC AND I WAS RUNNING OF SOME ONE ELSES IP ADDRESS AND THATS WHY IT WAS NEVER CLEARING FROM MY PC AS IT WAS MY ROUTER LETTING THIS BACK ON MY PC.



    I AM GLAD MY PC IS RUNNING NORMAL AGAIN AS IT HAS TAKEN A WHILE TO FIND OUT WHAT THIS PROBLEM WAS AS RE INSTALLING WINDOWS WASN'T FIXING THE PROBLEM.

If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.

You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.

You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system.

This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html

Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.

You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk.

Tip

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

Oxa0000003 trying to get rid of it


Have you tried booting in safe mode? Turn off computer, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode as an option. Take the safe mode option. Once it boots up all the way in safe mode see if you can go to Start/Programs and look for eRecovery to restore back to factory settings. If not, you should be able to get it back to factory settings in spite of the error code. Boot your computer and and try the Alt+F10 key to get the factory setting started. Try Alt+F10 when you see the Acer Logo. If it doesn't work try it when you first turn on the system.

Restore emachine W1136 desktop to factory settings without disc


I guess you can try it again to make it not able to start up such as to rename some important windows file. Always a good option to backup first.

You can chat with emachine tech on the following page.
http://emachines.com/support/answers.html

They might be glad to help. Someone might be always a little bit more courteous than others. You can reward them a most satisfactory feedback anyways.

Someone tried the Alt+F10 to get that restore option, I guess it might work with your emachine too. You might like to try it while starting up the system too.

Something to try if you didn't.
(1) Go to start menu
(2) Click on all programs
(3) click on Emachine
(4) click on Emachine recovery management
(5) Click on restore on the bar across the top
(6) click on restore to system factory default

Did you try the number key while starting up or the R key or maybe with the Alt key? Hope that help.

Everex rs2800 recovery


When you start up the computer there should be something in the boot up that says press this key to restore or something like that before you get to windows. The rs2800 has a secondary partition that has all of the files and windows installations to restore the PC back to factory install.

Hellpppp!!


You want to clean off your laptop so it looks like it came from the factory? Wipe out all the files you've put on it, and only have a fresh operating system?

-- Make sure you have the "Factory restore" or "system restore" discs from Acer. They can ship another copy to you for $5.
-- Make sure you have the Windows product key code, readable. (My sticker wore off in a hurry).
-- IF you are giving your computer to someone else, download Darin's Boot and Nuke, and use that to purge the hard drive of everything, using the default recommended thing, like 5 or 7 passes
-- Restart using the factory restore discs, and follow instructions.
