My computer has a ton of viruses and it will not let me install virus protection, i mean it will but to finish the process it needs to connect to the virus protection server and the virus has some how taken control over that, not allowing it to finish the download. i need to do a factory restore to my computer. i had the samething go wrong wit my dell but it some how has a system restore from the beginng i just had to push F11 and it was like i just bought it. i wanna do the same thing to my emachines EL1200 is there any thing that will let me do from the computer i dont have a back up cd.
Emachines usually gives you restore disk to restore it to factory setting (out-of-the box). see if you can find that disk if not you can contact Emachines and get it from them. it should not be too expensive just shipping could be part of expense. i would say about $25. i would call emachines and get it from them
From Emachines' website.

Click the "Windows" button and then type "eMachines recovery management" into the search box. Click on "eMachines recovery management" in the results list and then click the "Restore" tab.
Click "Password Settings" and then type a new password into the text box.
Click "OK" and then click "Restore System to Factory Default".
Type the recovery password into the "Password" text box and then click "OK". Click "Next" To start the recovery process.
Click "Finish" and then wait for your computer to restart.
This procedure could take several minutes. Once your computer has restarted, you'll be prompted to create a new user account, enter the date and time and set up the internet settings.
or if you are running XP
If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.
You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.
You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system. This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html
Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.
You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa...
hope this helps
