    You can usually get the drivers from the manufacturers website. What model is the DVD drive?

My computer has too many viruses. How can I erase them


Sorry!!! I know you don't want to hear this, but the best way to erase them is to do a good backup of your files on a removable media (USB drive), scan the media you back up your files to with a VIRUS FREE computer with a GOOD UP TO DATE anti-virus, REINSTALL WINDOWS FROM SCRATCH on the infected computer (hours of pleasure), INSTALL A GOOD ANTI-VIRUS than bring back the files...

Sorry but you wanted to know how to erase them!

I want to erase everything on my external hard drive. How do I do this?


If you aren't sure what you're doing, bring it to a service tech or you may render that external hard drive completely useless:
Before you start cleaning make sure you back everything up onto another disk. If you are giving your computer away check with the person or organization to see if they plan on cleaning your hard drive for you. However, the best thing to do is to clean it yourself.
Download a hard drive cleaning program or go to a computer store that sells computer software and buy the program. This is the safest way to make sure the hard drive is all wiped clean. Running the software program over writes all the data on your drive, making the hard drive impossible for anyone to read. The software works by over writing the drive many times.
Make sure you give yourself plenty of time in wiping your hard drive clean because if you have a lot of stuff it will take longer to clean.
Once your running your program and the box comes up to erase your hard drive don't forget that this process is irreversible. You will now type in the word format drive letter and hit confirm that you want to erase everything on your computer.
Installing a new external hard drive if you are not getting rid of your computer, is another option you have. You still go about erasing the old drive because you're getting rid of your hard drive. Install the new one.

I LOST THE SERIAL NUMBER TO MY DRIVE ERASE PRO DISK , MY COMPUTER HAS A VIRUS AND I REALLY NEED IT


• As soon as you suspect that your computer has a virus, remove your computer from any networks it might be on, as well as from the Internet, so that you don't inadvertently spread the bug to others.
• If you have virus-scanning (anti-virus) software installed, run it.
• If you don't have anti-virus software, you'll need to obtain some. If you can't get it from a network administrator or download it from an uninfected computer, you can mail-order it from a retailer.
• Start your computer (still not connected to a network) and follow the instructions that came with the anti-virus software.
• Keep running the virus-scanning software until your computer comes up clean.
• Reconnect your computer to the Internet and check with the anti-virus software's publisher to make sure you have the latest updates. If not, download them now.
• After updating the anti-virus software, run it again until your computer comes up clean.
Hopefully, it may help you to remove virus from your PC.

Just bought a hp mini and now has a virus infection. What do we do??


If its possible to burn disc, back the essential data first.
Dont use flash memory/USB device for this purpose. Virus spreads though them easily.

If the infection is small, u might be able to install some good antivirus software like McAfee or Kaspersky [my suggestion] and do a complete scan.

If the antivirus virus fails, the only way out is to re install the operating system. Backup the data first...

After reinstallation u still need antivirus software.
Donot open any drives further.
Install it from a CD.
then erase all drives except C drive[where u installed ur OS]- full erase by right clicking on the drive icon and selecting format option [dont perform quick erase]
Then do a scan to remove any malicious items...

Read this again b4 u proceed. All the best...
Hope this helped

How to format my sys


If you format your hard drive, this will erase everything on it. Your best bet is just to re-install the operating system, which will automatically format your hard drive in the process.
To prevent this problem in the future, I suggest getting a much better anti-virus suite such as AVG Internet Security suite or an equivilant. Good luck.
