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).

Possible corrupt operating system. The cause of corrupt operating system is Windows file corrupted or virus infected Windows.

Solution corrupt Windows files:
1. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Restore (restore to the date when the OS is still normal)
2. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Image Recovery (restore using a backup system that you created)

Solution files corrupted due to virus infected windows
Update anti-virus and virus scan (if the virus is detected, the primary action = repair, secondary action = quarantine). Then repair the operating system with System Restore or System Recovery Options.
Note:
If the operating system infected with virus (virus infected not long ago), the best solution is to use System Restore. Restore to a date when the windows are still normal.

Tip

Virus Protection


I have observed that no Anti-Virus software gives you complete protection. Whether its from big known companies like : Norton, McAfee, AVG etc. To Keep your computer safe, try not to click on any unknown advertisements or links on the websites. Keep your Anti-Virus softwares up to date. In case, if your computer is infected than try to use malwarebytes and update it before scanning your computer. Remove all the infections and quarantine items on the software and restart your computer. It will be free from viruses.

How do i restore my compaq presario v2000 to factory condition without recovery CDs, F10 and F11 not working and NO System Recovery option in the start menu


Your computer is infected with viruses. Solution: install and update anti-virus. You can use anti-virus free (Avira or AVG). Perform a virus scan process, with the option, if a virus is detected, the primary action "Repair" and secondary action "Quarantine".

hopefully help

When you turn on your computer press F8 for the startup options and choose Safe Mode. When the computer enters Safe Mode run another system scan and then restart. If you are unable to enter your account again, try to do a System Restore (Start\All Programs\Accessories\System) to a date before the infection happened and then do another full system scan.

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

Do you have Trojan license key?


A Trojan is a virus program that has infected your computer. You need to remove this Trojan virus.
If you can log into the Internet you can use a WEB based virus scanning program to remove the virus and then I recommend you install a virus scanning program.
WEB-based Virus Scan
Trend Micro HouseCall http://housecall.trendmicro.com Symantec - Norton Security Scan http://security.symantec.com Malware file download http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.phpI recommend this virus program - AVGFree

After use internet my pc,s speed very slow.


Your computer may be infected with a virus. Are you running any anti virus software?

Do a simple scan of your machine using anti virus software - If you have none installed, download and install this.

I have included AVG as its free.
http://www.avg.com/

Log off from the internet and run the scans - if you haven't run one before this may take several hours.

The clean up should remove any old entries and also detect any virus which may be slowing down your machine.
