"Needs cleaned off" is the message? It is possible you have a virus. Follow this procedure. Note that the messages vary from case to case, so it may not match yours exactly on screen. Do not send anyone any money.

Need to reset my ipod touch to factory settings

1. Plug your iPod 4G into your computer with its dock connector USB cable.
2. Install the most recent version of iTunes and open iTunes. Wait a moment for your iPod to appear in the side bar.
3. Click on your iPod in the side bar and select "Restore." A pop-up window will ask if you're sure you want to clear your iPod and restore to factory settings. Click "Continue" and enter your password, if prompted.
4. Leave the iPod untouched and on a flat surface while it restores to original settings. It's important that you don't try to disconnect or use the iPod while it's restoring. You'll see a progress bar either on the iPod or your computer that indicates how far along the process is.
5. Select your new syncing settings (automatic sync or manual) when prompted after the restore is complete.

Remove any DVDs or CDs from the optical drives and then unplug all peripheral devices except for the keyboard and mouse.

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.

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

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

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


hope this helps

Were having problems connecting our Wii to our router we have a Cisco E2000 router. on the Wii a screen pops up when im trying to connect that asks for a SSID n i cant find that on the rounter or anywhere...

Your SSID is the name of your wireless network, which you probably entered yourself when you set up your router. If you didn't change anything, its probably something like generic like: "ciscoxxxx" or "linksys".

Need to set up my router (Belkin N Wireless Router) but cant find the disk that came with it. how do I go about getting it set up so I have wireless internet. Thanks for your help

1. Hold the reset button for 7 seconds when the router is powered to reset the router back to factory default.
2. Connect your computer to this router's ethernet port, type on your browser's address bar then hit "enter".
3. You should see the Admin login page of this router, the default password is blank, it means you don't type anything onto the password field, just click "Login"
4. Make some necessary change, such as wireless keys, remember using WPA2 for security, not WEP.

Hope this help.

How can we password protect this router? Linkysy wrt54 Thank you!

This will be a bit lengthy, as we'll need to find out some information first.

On a computer that's connected to the network, it can be wired or wireless:

1. Open your Start menu.
2. If it's Windows 7 or Vista, simply type in cmd and hit [Enter]. If it's Windows XP, click Run, then type cmd and hit [Enter].
3. Type ipconfig and hit [Enter].
4. Find the line that says "Default Gateway:" near the top. Write down that number.

1. Click anywhere on the desktop.
2. In the bar at the top of your screen, click Go, and choose Applications.
3. Select Utilities.
4. Open Terminal.
5. Type ipconfig and hit [Enter].
6. Find the line that says "Default Gateway:" near the top. Write down that number.

Now it's the same regardless of operating system.
  1. Open any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.)
  2. In the address bar, type in ONLY the number you wrote down above. There should be no "www."
  3. If it asks for user name and password, the default is Username: admin ' Password: admin
  4. Click on the Wireless tab on top.
  5. Under that, click on the Wireless Security tab.
  6. Set Security Mode to WPA2 if possible (it may say WPA2-Personal). Otherwise, use WPA.
  7. Set your passphrase, and click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
You now have your password! On all computers connected wirelessly, you'll have to tell them to connect to the network again and enter the password. It will save the password after the first time so you don't have to do it again.

If you ever lose this password, there is a tiny red button on the back of the router. Hold that in with a pen and it will completely reset the router, wiping out all settings including password.
