Question about Averatec 3150H Notebook

1 Answer

Operating System Quarantined

I have an Averatec 3150 that has my Windows XP operating system in an AVG Free 8.0 anti-virus vault. The welcome screen with icons doesn't pop up after rebooting (just my background picture). Is there anyway I can backdoor into Windows? Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't do anything. Using the factory restore discs are my last alternative...

    Wow, how did that happen? Can you boot into Safe Mode? Usually, pressing F8 during boot, before the login screen, will bring up your prompt for Safe Mode.

Try This:

as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

(NOTE): instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu

Once in Safe Mode your screen will be black and your Icon will appear larger then normal.

Go to and install one of the free anti-viruses. It would also be worth downloading anti anti-malware product as well.

I recommend Avast Free Anti-virus and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (both are free).

You can try AVG anti-virus software
Only warning I have is AVG may interfere with Itunes. However, that problem may have been fixed in the past year. Check with Apple. They are aware of the conflict.

How i can protect my pc from virus.pls help me

To protect your computer system from viruses, you should install an updated anti virus. I recommend you to use full version of avast antivirus or AVG 8. Scan your computer and when viruses are detected, delete those infected files and viruses found from the virus vault. Also manually update it. Don't forget to install only one antivirus on your system. Installing more than one antivirus may clash down your system.
