    Before formatting have you tried a Windows System Repair?

    If - you haven’t done this,
    yet, and paid $40 (a total waste of money), then let me tell you that spyware
    is not the worst thing you can get on your computer, as a matter of fact, is it
    something you get almost immediately when you surf the internet.

    Virus is wors; it is very important
    to have a useful antivirus program installed and configured.

    That’s all folks :-)

    If you do not have your own cd maybe a friend has one and you would still use your own windows


    It is okay to use someone elses cd.

Spyware Protection screens keep popping up; saying that the computer is infected with different Trogans and viruses....and also requesting that you activate Spyware Protection to protect your computer. ...

Take note of the exact message you are getting and, preferably on a different computer, enter that message in a search window inside of quotes. The message you are getting is FROM the Trojan; you are already infected and you will need instructions on the removal. Entering the precise message will most likely identify the specific Trojan you have. Worst case, you may have to format your hard drive and re-install the operating system.

How do i format my laptop sony ns-series completely because it got spyware virus in it and i want to format it completely. thanks


The computer is supplied with a recovery partition in the hard drive. You can use the same to restore the computer back to factory settings. Please restart the computer and then press and hold F10 key to access the recovery partition. Once you access the same, please select "Restore C Drive" to perform a System Recovery.

As you have mentioned that the computer is infected by virus, there is a possibility that System Recover using the above method may not eradicate all the virus. In that situation a "Complete System Recovery" will be required. To perform a Complete System Recovery, you need the recovery discs. If you have created the recovery discs before, then you can use the same to perform a complete system recovery.

Else you can purchase the recovery discs from the below link:

It is required to purchase the recovery discs only if the first step didn't resolve the issue. I'm providing the second options as additional information.

Hope this helps.

In the past 2 weeks my machine has been freezing up and I can't even get to the task manager to eyeball what the issue may be.


It could be some spyware or a rootkit that is doing this. I would suggest taking it to a reputable computer shop and have it professionally serviced.

Anyone can remove spyware but the damage it sometimes does to Windows files cant be reapired without good knowledge.
