You should have a recovery partition on your hard drive. When windows is loading push shift F10 or some key combinations to enter the windows recovery. Or you can boot using a windows cd and try to repair a previous installation of windows. Back up whatever files you can first though. This may lead to reinstalling windows completely

How to effectivelly do a Virus Scan


To Effectivelly scan for viruses in your PC, you should turn off the System Restore, for the following two reasons.

1) It may have the backup image and settings for the virus effects on the computer and may get back those after a successful virus removal, and you will again be effected with the same virus.

2) The folder where system restore data is saved is System Volume Information, this folder is no accessible by Antivirus for scanning as they are blocked by the O/s. When you disable the System Restore, you can help your Antivirus to scan on those folders also, where virus can be hidden.

A good virus never comes to the front to infect your computer, it stays in the back and send its ddeployments to infect and harm your computer.

Computer crashed and upon start up it states that it is missing a DLL image file and will not bring up anything


Your dell could have been attacked by a virus or malware, and it went on to replace some system files. your options are, to reinstall the operating system, my guess is you are using windows, so reinstall windows, whether xp, vista or 7, login in using service directory repair mode, that is, by pressing F8 after the dell splash screen has displayed upon powering the computer, and selecting that choice. once logged in, perform virus scan if you have a good antivirus. meanwhile copy your important files and documents to a removable drive. if the antivirus manages to clean out the virus. you can reboot in a normal mode.
the second option is to use a live cd if you have ever heard of one, boot your computer using the live cd, some common ones are hiren's boot cd, multi-boot recovery cd and any other that you might across. once logged in, copy your importnt files and documents into a removable drive and format your computer and perfom a clean installation, this time do not forget to purchase an antivirus and install, kaspersky is fairly good, for some free options, avast is a good option. then scan your removable drive and clean it for viruses before recovering your documents

Lost files due to pop up virus


If this virus really deletes the files its really hard to recover it. But if the virus just hide your files. You can still recover it. Just unhide all hide files then look for your files if it is still there. If you can make a copy do it. You can also do this way. Type the filename you need on the search bar and use look also for hidden files option.

If you can make a copy do it. Then test it on a different computer with a good known updated antivirus installed. If your needed files will be deleted by that antivirus, if not then that solves your problem. Your other files to be follow.

Hope this helps you.

For the pop up virus deal with it, try to use Avira free antivirus.

Also what is youre operating system? If this doesn't help you we can device another solution

How can i remove virus


You can remove virus by using updated antivirus. Install it on your computer. I recommend you to use updated AVG 8 or AVAST antivirus full versions because it will surely remove viruses from your system. Scan your computer with the antivirus and don't forget to delete all the infected files and the viruses found in the chest or mostly known as virus vault. Use only one antivirus on your system because using more than one antivirus may crash down your computer.

Well, your problem seems to be due to a virus attack. Certain virus disable your task manager. To solve this, scan your computer with a good antivirus software and remove the virus. But in most cases you won't be able to restore the task manager with the antivirus application. So the best method is to backup your documents on the the drive where OS is installed and reinstall your OS.
