Restoring My GT4022 with windows xp

Hello my name is Karina. I bought this comp in 2006. It started acting up ever since I was tricked into installing a virus scanner for vista in April 2008. I deleted that program and there was no problems after that. Then, I periodically check my programs on my c drive to delete excess programs and files. Suddenly I see about 60-70 windows update that were not there before? So I delete what I could immediately. I assume I made a mistake because now the computer has very big pixels,(which i changed mannualy) and my log in screen does not show up any more, it takes me directly to my desktop. It is small little things that are annoying. My window player does not play. And there is still windows updates on my programs. What should I do? What program virus or anything should I buy? Or is it something as simply as to system restore ( which will not allow me)? Please Help me!

Hope that I can help, a little more info? Please do not delete any programs, go to control panel add/remove programs. I have a usb drive that I pass around to my users with Malware_bytes and other programs, the free one, very good. first download Malware_Bytes from tne Internet and update it and scan your PC, delete anything from the quarenteen folder. If you have malware, it is likely that restore won't help. Windows updates should be done about every 2 weeks.
If you cannot get to the Net, have someone else do it for you and install it, have them run it as well, will do yuo both a favor.

I have lexmark z25 and need have disk that came with it, but it will not install ?? on my new comp.


Sadly Lexmark have not produced Windows 8 drivers for the Z25. In all honesty they do not list any Vista/Windows 7 drivers either. Generic windows drivers may do the trick, so I would advise running Windows Update (or the Windows 8 equivilant) to make sure they are completely uptodate.

Sorry I could not not offer a definative solution.

Probably hardware failure. To test that remove all disks and extra components and try again to boot into BIOS. If you can't then you will know for sure. If you can then take the opportunity to change the boot order and put the cd first and the hd second. Now connect an optical unit and try to boot in a bootable disk, preferably a Linux Live-CD. If you can then the hard disk is dead, replace it.

My windows xp software


If you find the message :

"You may have been a victim of software coounterfeiting.

This copy of Window did not pass genuine Windows validation.

Ask for genuine microsooft software."

That means that your system is counterfeit

If the system is counterfeit I cannot help you because of Fixya policies on piracy.

If it is not, I can tell you that you can get rid of the problem doing a system restore to a date before you started getting the message.
