    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

    key.

    It is okay to use someone elses cd.

How to format compaq laptop nx6110


Hi

you could try to do this

Please try to save any files or pictures that you need before you do this either to a usb spare hard drive or a usb pen drive because you will loose it all if you format or reinstall windows

press the power on key as well as the F11 key
hopefully this will take you into the factory restore
which will format the hard drive while it restores

if you just want to format the hard drive itself then you could remove the hard drive
connect it to another computer via a usb cable and use the other computer to format the hard drive that you removed

or there are some good software out there that you can bootup with and format your drive without removing it from your laptop

a bootable spotmau would do the trick but its not cheap to buy
norton system works is another good software

pleasse let us know if this has helped you
many thanks

My laptop has a virus and I cant restore it or remove anything or run antivirus spyware it tells me to run. I also cant doing anything with that system tools. Can you please help me fix my computer. My...


Try running your laptop in safe mode. In order to do this, right when you start your laptop, press F8. It would then take you to a screen that has an option that says "Safe Mode". Run the laptop in safe mode, and then go to system tools and try running the system restore tool.

Make sure the laptop is not connected to the internet so turn off the wireless adapter or don't connect any network cable to it.

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


Hi,

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:

https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/shoppingCart.do?operation=addToCart&itemId=679907&searchOperation=partSearch&searchText=Y8318687A

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.

Thanks!!!!

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.


Hi

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.
