Question about Sony VAIO (PCWA-A200)
Hi,i have a sony vaio (model PCG-7D1M) but have some trojans. i want to re-install my laptop to factory setting but dont have a recovery disk or installation disk which came with the laptop...can anyone advise me how i can do this?thanks
Well, firstly having trojans on your computer shouldnt be reason enough to reinstall the whole OS especially if they arent affecting you computer to such an extent that you cant even install other applications. So what you could try and do, install or update your antivirus, Run a scan and see if that changes anything. If you're not sure what antivirus will do the job, visit http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html and get their free tool, it allows you to run scans during start-up, so if you have an trojans that are locked into memory, during start-up they can be removed.
As for running an new installation, You could get a more recent version of the OS your using and you could run an 'Upgrade' installation, it leaves all your programs intact.
