Dell? PC Restore by Symantec, question..?

My computer has been messing up
due to a really bad trojan/virus that i can't get
rid of, so i decided to try the Dell™ PC Restore by Symantec
method. So i follow the instructions, but im stuck where
it says to press the ctrl + f11 buttons and what not..
so i do that and
it goes to a how to run the system screen,
''safe mode
safe mode (xxxxx)
last good known config
start normal''

it doesnt show anything for the PC Restore thing..
it's really confusing..
how would i know if my pc has the hidden partition
or see if it even ever existed and what not..

the pc was purchased jan 07
and i can't recall if it came with the recovery discs
it is a Dell OptiPlex 745 running on Windows XP home

thanks
..willie

When you turn it on, hit ESC then right before the screen changes
you have to press
control
alt
F11 all at once

it will take numerous times....but will get you into the restore partition

If you bought the PC Jan 4th this year, then it's still under warranty. Call Dell and they will walk you through the problem. Hope this helps.

Virus Win32TrojanTdss and Packed.Generic.200 that I can't remove?


These trojans are pretty good at stopping new installations of programs that might remove them. If you were a smart bank robber, wouldn't you want to secure all the entrances so the police couldn't just walk in on you? Anyway, There are manual removal processes which are outlined by the Symantec website:

http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2009-040809-3630-99

Or, you can find a tool to remove the trojans first, then run AdAware and MBAM.

Restoring Dell computer


The best thing for you to do is to recover your computer back to the way it wasy when you purchased it. Warning, you will lose all data you have on your computer so you need to make sure you have a backup. You need to boot off of the operating system cd that came with your Dell. Once that's loaded, then you need to run the cd that says applications and drivers, and follow the instructions for your computer that comes onscreen.

Virus on my computer help!


Hi,

Don't worry, trojan.adclicker is not a serious threat, only some spyware which is not anywhere near as malicious as a virus. There are two things you can do to get rid of it though..

1) Follow these instructions (They are long winded but will work)
http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2002-091214-5754-99&tabid=3

2) Download Spybot S&D. This is a really good bit of software that should get rid of it much more easily for you, and will probably get rid of other similar stuff on your pc. Follow the link below and then install the program, then scan the system, then fix problems.

I would recommend trying option 2 first, it will be less hassle.

Hope this was helpful

There is trojan horse virus in my laptop. i ve a symantec norton 2004 antivirus. everytime i update my antivirus, there's some process happening n it comes again unable to hell the virus.... it got...


you need to press F8 while the pc is booting for a startup in safe mode, then when in safe mode select start windows in safe mode, go to my computer, properties>system restore tab and turn off system restore and then run the scan again as these trojans cannot be deleted when the pc is in normal use.

 

If your antivirus finds them but cannot heal, make a note of the file that has the trojan and then search for the file and delete it manually.

 

Ensure after the trojans are deleted that you tuirn system restore back on
