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.

Linda, press the Windows key and type recovery. The disks are not really backup, per sa. The disks are needed in case your hard drive fails. The system disks are shipped in a D:\ drive, fine if the drive works, but not helpful if the drive itself fails.

If you do not find the recovery disk program, look in accessories and system tools.

If you still cannot find it, go to HP.com and look under support. HP has free support and they can help you.

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.

I have a virus I cannot remove from my hard drive


If you can go to Avira.com and download there repair disk,you can put it on a disk or flash drive, it will run before windows starts(dos), you force the lap to boot from the disk. If this is a virus Avira will kill it.
Avira is the 2nd top anti-virus on planet, there free edition is better
than AVG, Avg is 21 out of the top 20 anti-virus.

Yes, if you reinstall windows and delete the drive,install to (C) new raw and format, it will be gone, but a lot of work when you don't need to.

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!
