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 installation disk
to be cleared you don’t need a specific disk made to your computer
if your coa says “Microsoft xp home or pro” then any windows home or pro
cd will do this the same apply to vista. So buy, borrow or download any OEM
not pirate version of the original operating system that is specified in your
Windows sticker. The oem cds can be found on ebay they should cost less
Than $10 or £10 do not buy the license version because your already have
The license underneath the laptop. “coa” is the sticker with the serial number
Which will be asked for in the middle of the installation.

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.

Whenever I connect any removable drive automatically 4 shortcuts got created of control panel.


You have a virus on your PC. Unfortunately, once you have this virus, it usually does not help updating your anti virus and running a scan since the virus is running in the memory of the PC and every infected file the anti virus removes - the virus just puts back again. Try one of two things to remove the virus:

1] First update your anti virus (if you dont have an anti virus, download the free AVG Antivirus and install that and then update it. Click here to go to AVG's website. Once installed - Boot your pc into SAFE MODE. This is VERY important otherwise the virus will load into memory and it wont help running the anti virus to clean the system as the memory resident virus will just replace any infected file that is removed by the scan. To boot your PC into safe mode: Read this article: Click here.

Once you are in safe mode - Open the Anti-virus console and do a complete system scan.

2] Remove the infected hard drive from your PC and install it as a secondary drive in a clean, VIRUS PROTECTED PC!!! ... i.e .. any pc that has the latest anti-virus system installed and is up to date!. Once you have installed the infected drive in the protected PC as a secondary drive, run a scan on the infected drive and remove the virus.

Once you have removed the virus, also scan ANY USB devices on that PC, including any Cameras, cellphones, photo frames, etc that you might have plugged into the infected PC.

Good luck

My 32 gb pendrive is not working.. all the datas are vanished whenever i removed my pendrive


Most probably your data are "hidden", due to serious malware/rogue ware/spyware/virus infections and changes the attributes of those pendrive files!! and your PC is infected too.

From your Windows Explorer, Tools->Folder options->View tabs->"Show hidden files and folders" and you should be able to see the files.

Before you do anything, you have you clean up the 'nasty infiltrations" first. If not, if you click on any of those files, these self regenerating "nasty files" will cause more serious problems/damage to your PC and any external drives that is plug onto your infected PC.

Hope it helps.

My PC won't let me download the zune software


If you are having problems downloading software it could be due to a malware infestation. Even if you have virus software, malware can get through. To determine if you are infected, try going to websites that are known virus fighting sites (such as symantic, AVG, etc.). If you get errors that the page cannot be found or other errors, you are infected. You'll need to download a program called Malwarebytes from another computer. (Can be found a www.downloads.com) Copy the program to a USB or CD and boot the infected computer into safe mode. Once in safe mode, run the software and have it remove all infections. Reboot the computer and run the software again. Run any virus scan software you have as well.

Registry editor,task manager not opening


Hi, Yes, you are right !, your system is infected with a serious virus and you cannot use your computer unless you remove the visus.
This problem happens when there is no updated antivirus running.
To fix it, download/ aquire MacAfee antivirus and its latest update.
Boot the system to safe mode, and install the macAfee and update. Run the scanner and remove the virus.
Try and let me know if its not succeeded.

thank you
