You should not have to erase all of your programs,, not without first trying to kill the virus,,you can do what is called an online scan,,just go to:

use the button on the left,and do a online scan,,,do not shut the computer down until it is finished,,if you are running on batteries,,,please plug your laptop in at this point,,it may take a half hour or copy the link i have sent you.

How to completely erase everything without a secondary key

Wipe it really clean? Like erase Windows and everything?

Do you have the original disks that came with the computer? If you boot from a Windows installation disk, then you can reformat (wipe) the disk before you install. That's a nice clean install. If you want to go a step further, you could repartition the drive with fdisk, then format it.

If you're looking to keep windows, but erase all the programs and files, that's more tedious. Open Control Panel, go to Programs & Features. You'll see a list of installed programs. You can double-click on a program to uninstall it.

To get rid of files, I would suggest creating a new User account for yourself, give yourself Administrator permissions, and then delete your friends account. Then you can look in the Users folder, and if you see your friend's account on a folder, delete it.

BRIGHTNESS symbol on desktop-- how to get rid of it

Most likely a program that loads when your computer starts..
Click your start key and type: msconfig hit enter.
This program is very similar to a light switch. Turning startup programs off and if you need them (any) turn them back on. As you can see my own msconfig. Anti-virus will run, but other programs are turned off. Now all you have to do is figure out what program it is.
This of course is the easy direction to try first.

I am not able to sign-in to facebook since yesterday evening. It always shows site maintenance, hence the website is down for maintenance, and will be available after some hours. Kindly solve the problem...

Facebook is fine-up and running. What you have is problem with your browser.Try to use another one,ie-firefox,safari,opera. Scan you computer for viruses.If you don't have program for that,use google to find free and good-yes it is passable.My advice is Avast or A-vira. Free SuoerAntiSpayware,Spy-Bot S&D.They are really good.I think that you have some Trojan in your browser.Good luck!

How uninstall the etype socre board?

Hello and welcome to FixYa,

I am sending you a link to a page for the showing you how to uninstall this program.

It is all the way at the bottom, however; there are a lot of 'programs' that appear to uninstall it, but still

leave trace files of it in your computer, taking up space and slow your computer down. If you truly

would like to get rid of it completely after reading the link i gave you and all the reasons why you may

not want to and how to do it their way; go to this link. It is a free program that will erase it.

Please download the free version of Revo from the link below

Once downloaded. make sure to run the file, to install Revo.,

Revo is an uninstaller tool, that works much better then the built in windows uninstall tool. Once installed, run the revo program. Open revo, find program you want to delete, double click it, to start uninstall process, select advanced, click select and delete all files as they come up. Your program will be gone!

Let me know if you run into trouble or need help!

Thanks, KittyTech

How do I get rid of a abode flash player google tool bar notifier that appears on my screen when I go through to internet and keeps flashing on all the time HELP

Adobe flash player and google toolbar are 2 different things. I don't think you want to get rid of adobe flash player because it is needed to correctly display many web pages but you can get rid of google toolbar.

To do that, go to start, control panel, and under programs, click uninstall programs. Scroll down until you see google toolbar. Click on google toolbar to highlight it. On the top of the window, click uninstall. Follow the wizard until it says the program was successfully uninstalled. You may need to restart your computer once the program is uninstalled.

Let me know if this solves your problem.

How to rid excess fragmentation or write over drive?

The best approach is to format the drive. Go to "Administration Tools" in control panel. Select "disk management"from the left panel and view the bar-raph of your drive. If there is un-allocated space, or there are partitions, remove the partitons first before formatting. When you have the bar-graph down to just on partition (the primary patition), format the balance of the drive to NTFS.

In january I used ''registry repair'' programme to fix any problems it found on scanning my computer. Unfortunately, when the '' repair'' concluded, dozens of icons were left on my screen. the icons...

those icons are registry backup files the program created in case it removed something it was not supposed to.
If you have not noticed any problems with any of your programs since January I would say it is safe to erase them.
If you want to hold onto them for safety sake, you can create a folder titled something like "registry backup" to move them into.
