Obviously, you want to save files from the computer; any files transferred to another system could infect that system.

If you really need those files I would recommend downloading an Ubuntu ISO and burning it to a CD. This gives you to boot to an operating system from a Compact Disc.

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Ubuntu Linux has the ability to browse the Windows hard drive, if needed, transfer the files off the partition. You can burn the files from Ubuntu, if you have two Disc Drives, move the files on to a Flash Drive, or you can transfer them across your home network. Beware, this can spread the damage to other systems that do not have active virus protection.
Seriously, you need Norton, McAfee, or AVG Free at the least; these programs can intercept virus like activity as it happens in the memory. Furthermore, a script blocker like Noscript, Ad-aware, or MS Windows Defender can help prevent Spyware/Trojans/Variants from installing when you browse a untrusted site.

Once you have backed up the files you want to save you'll need to use your system recovery disc to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system on your laptop.

IMF.exe missing component rtl120.bpl how to restore it?


error is a common system error which tells you that rtl120.bpl file is missing or corrupted when you try to open certain files, applications or just start up the computer. Usually rtl120.bplerror happens when there is a conflict in the path of the Dynamic Link Library or when there is some missing/ corrupted entries in Windows registry. rtl120.bpl error may cause the related programs stop functioning and accesses areas of your system memory incorrectly.
Method 1. Fix rtl120.bpl error Manually by Going Tweaking The Registry Keys.
  • a. Click "Start" menu--"Run"--type in "regedit".
  • b. Delete these registry keys as below manually:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
list.jpgMethod 2. Fix rtl120.bpl error by Disabling Related Programs from Startup.
The DLL file would be infected by virus or Trojan. If the anti-virus program on your computer detects and deletes the infected file, you would probably receive error message alarming you that the DLL file cannot be found. You absolutely will fail to run the relevant application or program but keep receiving DLL error message on the startup. In such situation, you have to re-download and install the application to re-register the DLL information. Accordingly you have to disable an application run automatically on system startup in order to avoid such DLL error message:
  • a. Click "Start" menu--"Run"--type in "msconfig"---Start--- select the certain item to disable.
  • b. Reboot your computer.

Possible corrupt operating system. The cause of corrupt operating system is Windows file corrupted or virus infected Windows.

Solution corrupt Windows files:
1. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Restore (restore to the date when the OS is still normal)
2. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Image Recovery (restore using a backup system that you created)

Solution files corrupted due to virus infected windows
Update anti-virus and virus scan (if the virus is detected, the primary action = repair, secondary action = quarantine). Then repair the operating system with System Restore or System Recovery Options.
Note:
If the operating system infected with virus (virus infected not long ago), the best solution is to use System Restore. Restore to a date when the windows are still normal.

I have aop n emachine Em250 series. I installed avast in safe mode and ran scan. 2000 plus infected files were detected. I deleted all these infected files. Now my laptop cannot start up. When I log in...


Hello
2000 files infected? You need too format and reinstall your operating system.
You can try Holding down the f 8 key while booting up.Then choose last known good configuration.

If you have your windows install cd you can do a repair by booting off the disk and choosing repair windows to replace files lost.

Avast is trash.Get microsoft security essentials for your anti virus.

Touchpad and keyboard stops functioning


Sounds like you didn't have a very good anti virus :P Thats the only thing I can think of that would cause this.

Download an Anti-Virus software (I reccomend AVG if you want a free but effective one) and run a full virus scan. This could take a while but will find any infected files or malicious software in your system. Tell AVG to get rid of the viruses and continue using your laptop again.

If the problem persists then post again and I'm sure somebody could give you an answer.

My harddrive was infected by a virus worm32/sality i put it in a external usb connection then scan all its files to clean out all the infected files and directories by using avira antivirus after i scanned...


The only problem about putting the hard drive into an external box and doing a scan is that most virus softwares move the infected files to the virus vault or virus chest. By doing so it may have moved some of the operating system files to the other machine. If you have the original operating system cd, I would recommend trying to do a restore of the lost files by inserting the operating system disk and allowing the machine to boot from the disk. Then it should pop up a window that asks if you want to do an install or repair. Click on repair and it should go through and replace the missing files with a new version. If you cannot make it work, you may have to put it back into the external drive case and try putting them in manually. I have on occasion seen some destructive viruses that will disable the hard drive when the infection is removed. In a worst case scenario, You might try putting the hard drive back into the external case then moving all possible files to the other machine. Then install the drive back into the original machine and try doing a clean install of the operating system and moving the files back afterwards.

System not functioning in my laptop?


If you didnt backup your files and you need to reinstall your operating system (or run a system recovery), you have a hard choice to make...delete the files while recovering, or try to treat the infection and save your data. A good technician can save your files and fix the machine. Do you have a hard drive enclosure and a second computer to connect it to? If you do, then theres hope. Otherwise, make that painful choice.
