Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 

  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.

How to install Recovery disc on your laptop/computer


Formally, when you purchase a laptop or desktop computer, an operating system disc comes with it. But these days, such disc does not come with most laptop or desktop computer because it is already installed in them which is called recovery disk. This has a great advantage, because if it was on a disc, it will have a scratch and it cannot last forever because it might get lost or damaged. So, having it already installed on your laptop or desktop computer by your computer's manufacturer is a very good idea.

Most people are not aware that this recovery disc is on their laptop or desktop computer. And some might know, but don't know how to use or install it.

A Recovery disk is used to repair windows operating system when it has a virus or when operating system is malfunction. Reinstalling windows with recovery disks helps to recover your computer from any damage.

First, you need to confirm whether your laptop or desktop computer has a recovery disk on it or not. To confirm, click Start Menu, scroll to "My Computer" and click on it. Beside your system's "Local disk (C:)" you should find "RECOVERY (E:)" Click on the recovery disc and you should find a golden padlock with "RECOVERY" in front of this. Also confirm the and make sure it's is a minimum of 6GB.

Now, to install/run your system's recovery disk, go to;"Start menu" > "All Programs" > "Backup & Recovery" > "Recovery Manager". Read and follow instructions and you will definitely perform the recovery successfully.

Lastly, make sure you perform the recovery white your laptop adapter plugged to AC and do not run the recovery on battery. There must not be interruption of any kind in the process of the installation.

Good luck.

I have a acer aspire one KAV60,i forgot to make a recovery disk or in short i just learn that it necessary to make a eRecovery disk...im using it almost a 2 yrs now.so my question,im planning to reinstall...


Some Viruses DO attach to the files in the recovery set up. They can also replicate themselves in files used to go back to an earlier time when things where running ok. The best thing to do is clean the system of any Viruses, Many good FREE programs on the net, Search for Malwarebytes, This is a very good free anti malware program, then Avast antivirus. Free to use and very good up to date programs.

I AM HAVING A SLOW LOADING OF WINDOWS XP SP 1. I AM POSITIVE THAT MY LAPTOP IS HAVING A VIRUS. HOW CAN I FORMAT THE HARD DISK DRIVE?


Put in your recovery disk and restart the computer a clean install of windows will format the hard drive automatically! If you don''t have the recovery disk you'll need a windows disk to do the same.
Do you have it set to FAT32 or NTFS? If it's FAT32 you can pop in a windows 98 rescue disk and restart the computer with CD support type in A: and enter then you type in like this A:\ format C: /s
and it will prompt you to carry on by selecting Y for yes hit enter and start formatting.
You then have to remove the floppy put in your windows disk or rescue disk(which has windows XP on it) and restart and select install at the following prompts etc
You can reboot to Safe mode alternatively(restart and hit F8 when POST messages are displayed) and scroll up to safe mode and enter. If you have an anti virus software program installed you can run a scan and remove any possible viruses that way or if you know what the virus is use the search function and find and delete the infected files!

M675 virus need recovery cd


The system recovery application can be run 2 ways. If can be run from within windows as you have been attempting to do, and it can be run without going into windows.

The access the system recovery without going in to window:
Power your computer off.
Disconnect all external devices including printers and pc-card (external mouse and keyboard can be attached)
Power you system on and watch very carefully for a message that says 'Press F11 to start system recovery'
Press F11 as soon as you see this message.
From her you can go through the recovery process. Because you are dealing with a virus, it's a better idea to perform a complete reload (the destructive version) but it will completely erase all files on your computer. The danger in not doing this method is that some virus can be reactivated later if they have not been erased from the hard drive.

Hi, my old laptop Toshiba Satellite A100 is


I take it that the recovery disc came with the laptop in which case all the drivers will be there.

I'm more concerned that it is "riddled with viruses and adwar" which you can't remove!

Why?

Do you not use an Anti virus program?

What's going to happen to your new computer?
