Try rebooting the Laptop and as it is booting up,keep tapping the F2 key this should bring you into the system bios.
If you can get this far,,press F10 and save,,then as it is booting again press F10 again,,this should bring up a menu choice,,choose Safe start with networking.
If you can get this far you can go to "Start" "Programs" "Accessories" then "System Tools" Then "System Restore" from here you should be able to roll your computer back to a previous date.

Actually Free AntiVirus Software (Windows Only)


Note: Only for legitimate users of Windows XP/Vista/7.

If you are tired of paying for Anti-Virus software for your computer, the day has finally come when you no longer have to pay for it. Microsoft has released their own anti-virus program for all windows users (with legit copies of windows), probably to compete with apple. The software is called Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), and will most likely be free forever (updates and all). The software is available for XP (32-bit) and both Vista and Windows 7 (32- and 64- bit).

Now before installing MSE you must first uninstall the current anti-virus software you use. Before uninstalling the program, it's features must be shut-off as they are typically designed to protect themselves from removal. In order to do this, move your mouse to the bottom right corner of your screen. Double click on the icon for your anti-virus software (for MSE this is a little house). This will open a control screen for your software. On this screen uncheck or disable all features of your anti-virus software, there will likely be warnings against proceeding - disregard these. Next we will uninstall the program, this can be done by gone within the control panel: click on "Start" then "Control Panel", click on the "Add or Remove Programs" link and then navigate to your anti-virus software. Always remove peripheral components first (i.e. for Symantec products remove the LiveUpdate or anti-malware feature first) followed by the main component (i.e. for Symantec products this would be the symantec anti-virus module). You may have to restart several times during this process, you should always restart when prompted. Once you have removed all of the programs labeled with the maker of your anti-virus software your computer will be ready to install MSE.

Now we can go ahead and begin the MSE installation process. The installer can be found at the following website: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Be sure to choose the correct version of the software: select the "Download Now" button, and click on the link corresponding to your operating system. This will initiate a download, when the file has saved to your computer, double click on the installer and follow on-screen instructions to installing MSE. Updating the product immediately and then promptly running a system scan is highly recommended.

Enjoy free anti-virus software for life!! Another interesting fact...according to an independent rater of anti-virus software, Virus Bulletin, MSE is one of the very best with a VB100 rating: http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/archive/results?vendor=VE70
Enjoy!

PC keeps rebooting itself after G Data software installed


You should not use G-Data antivirus anymore, because the Blue Screen error you are experiencing right now is due to incompatibility of the antivirus with the OS. Moreover, you have told us that other G-Data antivirus users have the same issue. So, you must not use it.
According to users and webpage reviews, some of the best and user-friendly free antiviruses are MSE, Avast, AVG, etc. I've used all of them and they are more or less equally good.
If you are using genuine windows you can use Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE). This one is very light-weight.
Dowload MSE here: windows.microsoft.com/MSE
If you are not using genuine windows or if you are not a windows user, you can use Avast or AVG.
Download Avast here: www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download Download AVG here: free.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download

NOTE: You can get automatic or scheduled virus scans and signature updates with these anti-viruses also. :)
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Tying to install kaspersky anti virus programme.its coming up to remove norton anti virus which ive removed all norton programmes but its still saying remove norton virurs


If you did a reboot then it should be gone however; Norton is notorious for not removing all of its little registry stragglers after uninstall. They have a program that will go in and grab the remnants.

Please see

Also please offer a review if this was helpful and a thumbs up :)

Stimy computer has the blue screen of death.it will just come on with a black screen and then a blue screen stays on for a second return back to the same problem the red light just stays on.it is a virus...


It's either a virus or a driver problem (most likely a virus). The best solution is to get a external usb cd rom drive, and install a fresh copy of windows back onto the system to ensure no issues.

Matrix when booting up.


Make sure you run an updated anti-virus program on the machine in Safe-Mode. You will also want to scan for any root-kits or malware that could be infecting your machine. The thing about malware and root kits is that they appear to be removed (when using an anti-virus program) but can reside in the boot record, so when you reboot, the machine automatically loads the root kit and infects your machine again. I would also scan for spy ware.

Here are some programs you could try:

MalwareBytes (run in safe mode first)

Vipre or kaspersky anti-virus (run in safe mode after malware bytes)

AdAware (scans for spyware, run in safemode as well)

Seek and destroy is another good scanner to run as well.

Failing all those scans, you should backup any important files and reformat the hard drive and reinstall the OS. If there is still a problem, then chances are this is a hardware issue.

Pc recovery not working


Update your Anti Virus definitions to current, then reboot your PC into Safe Mode (tapping F8 on boot will give you the boot option screen, choose "Save Mode"), then choose your Operating System and click "Yes" to the pop up, then once at your desktop click Start, All programs and open your Anti Virus and run a Complete/Thorough scan to completion and hopefully it will detect and repair the Virus damage. Then reboot Normally and your system may be repaired.
Good luck!

If you can reboot to Safe Mode and select "Last Known Good Configuration" it will be best but if you can't then you have to completely shut- down and reboot with your Restore or Windows CD and select the options to do a "Repair"
