Averatec 3200 lap top has a virus

I was told that I need to delete the hard drive and use the recovery disk. My question is: does the order I delete things matter?

DON'T DELETE THE HARD DRIVE until AFTER you run a full virus scan & clean. You can get Avast antivirus for free. It updates daily, is very easy to use and works as good as the expensive ones. Run some spyware & malware checkers and get a registry cleaner. If ALL of these fail, then format the hard drive. Like jell said, make sure you get all of your data off first. After the format, it WILL BE GONE.

    I have an Averatec that had 194 viruses on it. I got it used, real cheap. I didn't format it and it runs like a new machine.

The recovery disc will do the deleting for you. Make sure you've got all of your data off before running it.

Post back if you have issues during or after the restore process.

My averatec booting problem


The SMART is the monitoring system that is embedded in all hard disks - if it reports a failure it means that the hard disk has died. You need to replace the disk and only after that you can reinstall.

My 3200 has shut down and needs to be rebooted. I tried the recovery disk- 1-3. It states that there was a recovery failure. M.Wright


Your problem here is more then likely a hard drive issues due to bad sectors. Back up information and replace hard drive.

When powering up it will go to the windows xp screen


HI. This will happen if the core system file bank has been compromised by a virus or malicious software. I suspect the virus has wiped out all restore points and has completely disabled all safe mode access points as well..Unfortunately, you will lose all your saved information that you have stored on the partitioned hard drive due to this attack. The only way to fully restore this system to its factory settings would be to locate a recovery disk that should have been shipped along with this unit. Use this disk to restore the core system files and the main operating system as well. If you don't have the recovery disk that was sent with your unit, a Windows XP disk will preform the same action and, will restore this unit to factory specs as well, minus the software pack. There is a possible way to restore this system and keep the hard drive as is but, this can only be attempted by using the original recovery disk that was sent with the unit and, its not always successful. I recommend totally re formatting the drive to clear it of all data. this will assure that the virus and all of its contents are removed.

Please rate and god bless.

Installation cd


The installation cd is on a seperate partition of your hard drive. If you are wanting to reinstall everything follow these instructions
I have the same computer.
You dont need a disk- but do the following:-
1) Turn on your computer. 2) Press F4 repeatedly until you see the recovery program 3) Click - application on the left pane 4) then follow instructions on screen. That it.

If you need a file off the cd let me know!
