How to reset to factory default with out discs


Asus has become one of the "Top 5" computer manufacturers worldwide.

CNET attributes this growth to the Netbook craze.


The company's name comes from the last four letters of "Pegasus," the winged horse from Greek Mythology.

You can restore your Asus laptop to the original factory settings in about five minutes.


Restart your ASUS laptop and press the "F9" key while the computer is booting up.

This will open the boot screen. Select "Recover Windows to Entire HD" and press "Enter."


Press "Y" three times when asked if you are sure that you want to restore.

The laptop will restore the factory settings.


The computer will then shut down and start up again.

Approve the license agreement, then select your "Language preference."

Enter your name into the box and click "Next."


Enter your password twice on the next screen and select "Next."

Enter the time zone and date information, then select "Next." Select "Finish" on the next screen and the computer will reboot.


hope this helps

How to remove virus at hard dish pc


Using another computer, download the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and burn it to a CD disk.
Install the disk in the affected computers CD/DVD optical drive.
Run Malwarebytes.

There may be a LOT of pop-ups. So may in fact, that you may not be able to see the Malwarebytes screen, and wonder if it is running.

NO matter how many pop-ups you see, and no matter how real they look, DO NOT click on anything.
Let Malwarebytes run.
Average time is 42 minutes.

1) Free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware,

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

On this page click on Download Now in the green rectangle. (Ignore the other Start Downloads, etc. They are advertising for something else)

After you are finished running Malwarebytes, you may wish to turn System Restore OFF, and run Malwarebytes one more time.

THEN turn System Restore back on.

System Restore will also keep the 'virus'.


2) The 'virus' you have is a 'scareware malware',

Pc wont let me download any antiviruses, been to ld i have a bad case of malware, i have tried everything i can think of to get rid of it but to no avail, am looking for somebody that knows what they are...


Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on ANOTHER computer.

Suggest use the free version. It's all you need,

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

(Click on Download Now in the small green rectangle, to the top left side )

Once downloaded to the alternate computer, burn it to a CD disk.
Turn your laptop on, and open the DVD drive tray. Install the Malwarebytes CD disk, close the tray.

When Malwarebytes is loaded, install it. Then run Malwarebytes.

You may see pop-up, after pop-up, as Malwarebytes is running. So many in fact, that you may not see the Malwarebytes screen, and wonder if it is running.
IT IS. Takes usually around 8 minutes to complete.

The pop-ups may have what looks to be genuine Microsoft icons. (Shield)
Some are real, some are not.
Click on the real ones? Why? Microsoft hasn't done you any good in this matter so far.

It doesn't work, and you are just slowing down Malwarebytes. Do Not touch anything until Malwarebytes is done.

Once done you will have your Administrator privileges back again.
You can access Control Panel, Task Manager, System Restore, etc.

Suggest you go to System Restore, and TURN IT OFF, temporarily.
System Restore restores the laptops files, AND the 'virus'.

Click on Start > Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs > Go up to Accessories, over and down to System Tools, and over and down to System Restore. (Windows XP)

Click on System Restore.

When System Restore has loaded, click on - System Restore Settings - on the left side of the screen.

Click IN the empty box to the left of - Turn off System Restore on all drives
Now go below to the right, and click on Apply.
Go below to the left, and click on OK.

Run Malwarebytes one more time. When finished go back to System Restore > System Restore Settings > and click in the box once more. Empty square box.
Click on Apply, and OK once more.

Also suggest you go back to the main System Restore page, and click on the circle to the left of -
Create a restore point. Then click on Next at the bottom.

You will have a system restore point that you Know is good.
(Be aware that after time the restore point is gone. Windows updates the restore point. You may want to go into system restore once in a while, and ensure you have a vaild good restore point)

The 'Virus' you picked up is no virus at all. It's a sham.
It is a 'Scareware Malware'.

Pretends to be genuine, but is a hoax. Purchasing it does nothing. It does not remove itself.
It is a new version of an old piece of cr@p, MS Antivirus,

You can restore but cannot be certain when the virus was placed. But I recommend a full restore of the computer, you will need to transfer anything to a flash drive. You will need to install all the drivers as well when the computer finishes install the OS again but that is the easiest and cheapest way to go. The only bad thing is that it takes several hours to computer it all.
