Hello,

If you boot from an XP or vista install disk and select the option to delete the existing partition it should format ok. Be sure to not delete any factory restore partition that may exist on your hard drive. When you are at the partition delete screen you may see several partitions, just delete the one that is about the full size of your hard drive, any smaller one will be a diagnostics or retore partition. I hope this helps.

Running slow


Check for virus as they are one of the causes to make the computer run slow. Along with that clean your disc of unwanted files, temporary internet files, cookies and unwanted/idle programms. Also de-fragment the disc.

Hurri virus


Hey there

Once you are infected of viruses then you wont be able to remove them compltely by doing some utilities.
You need to install some good Antivirus Program.

First of all check for what kind of viruses are affecting ur system by:

Because your virus leads to your system very slow as well as restarts itself without awaring you. It is caused by Worm and Trojon viruses. For making sure that ur system is suffering from virus go to tools in menu bar and check for folder. if the folder option appears to you then it is okay. again try to go to Task manager by right clicking on the tasl bar. If the task manager is also showing then you are not affected of viruses.

Try out QuickHeal Antivirus by downloading it from the following link:
http://www.quickheal.com

Download its trial version and then get it updated by connecting ur pc to the internet.
This antivirus program can remove all the viruses that are currently present in ur system.

gimme your acknowlege by rating me

thanx

Infected by virus


I hope you backup your date regularly.
I hope that the virus did not get into your hidden partition which holds the system recovery information.
You might want to virus scan the hidden partition (go to folder options, view tab, and uncheck ‘hide file extensions’) and then scan the hidden partitio
When you ‘formatted’ did you run eRecovery Management and restore to factory settings?
Do not rate me yet, I am asking probing questions to better understand the situation (remember I am not there with you thus, I don’t know unless you tell me).
