Trojan virus on new Dell Inspiron 1525 - VirusMelt by name

When first connected to Internet as new, pop-ups for VirusMelt kept appearing and coud not be deleted from desktop,trash,control panel or system.Asked for remote access disguised as Dell,messages such as sprtcmd.exe and update.exe - but all were traced back to VirusMelt. Any ideas before I send the computer back? Thanks.

A clean installation

it is recommended to this service at least
once every 8 months, it wipes all your hard
drive from data, programs, bugs, errors and viruses
this will 100% solve your problem guaranteed.

for xp, insert the xp installation disk
restart the computer and a message will
come up asking to press any key to boot
from cd. once you do that "i mean you press a key"
then a blue screen will load then asks you
to press Enter to install xp.

1. press enter
2. select the partion and press enter
3. select continue "it warns you to delete files"
4. select format "quick"
5. now let it do the rest and follow instructions
6. when the installation is finished you'll notice
its like new again, some computers will need
drivers which you can get from manufacturer
website. download and install them.

that's it but for a detailed information click here

Dell 1525 won't run on ac but will on generic battery


Dell systems will not charge the battery without a Dell Branded AC adapter connected to the system (The BIOS looks for the adapter ID and disables the battery charger if not ID'd)
It appears, that since the system will not power on with either AC adapter, that there is a problem with the power connection of the system. You can replace the power board

if that fails to resolve next is the motherboard

Rebooting


To get rid of the virus and set it back "just as you bought it", reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system with your recovery or operating system disc. If you use the built in quick recovery system, the virus will remain, and continue to cause damage to the system.
