Re: delete all programs in my dell 810 xp

Depending on how long you have had your computer, system restore usually only goes back a couple of months. If you save all your data (files) that you created and have the system restore disk that came with your computer, insert it into your disk drive and follow on screen instructions.

How do i removea virus from my window xp beacuse my computer i so so slow

Go to to read up on thus subject.i usually use ccleaner (free) to clear up all the bad stuff generated in browsers to start with.then I run malwarebytes.this usually makes things right but if not then as a last resort try using the combofix from bleeping computers.this automatically run through several similar programmes and straightens out the nasty stuff that sometimes gets it's way into the system settings without your consent.lastly upgrade you ram if you can.when you use cleaner you can disable or delete some startup programmes that use up resources or do scans in the background that are quite unnecessary that can cause machine to chew slowly.

Delete cortana delete all types of Google? Please?

Hiya. Are you actually using a Windows XP PC, or are you the inside of Master Chief's head? :p

- Do you mean Google as in the internet browser?
- Do you mean Cortana as in the digital assistant? Because Cortana doesn't run on Windows XP, in fact it's not out for home computers yet at all, so you may have some sort of virus called Cortana on your computer - if so, do you have a virus/malware scanning program on your computer?

I bought a dell desktop with windows 7 installed. but i now want to install windows xp on that computer. but when i insert the xp cd and select install windows xp option i get an message somewhat like this...

I believe the only way would be to remove Windows 7 from the computer. If the hard drive with windows 7 on has any programs and files you would loose them during the proccess. If you want to run programs that are not compatible with Windows 7, I think you'll be able to tell the computer to run it as XP, or I should contact Microsoft if you have problems with Windows 7 and other programs. You should look at all the avenues before deleting Windows 7 though.

Reboot whole computer

Why do you want to restore your computer to its original state? Did you get infected with a virus, or malware , or a rootkit that you believe has compromised the integrity of your system?
If you revert back to the condition your system was in in 2004, you will have to spend hours if not days online downloading years of updates to your os, updating drivers, and reinstalling all your applications and programs, not to mention backing up and re-organizing all your documents and folders.
Please consult the Gateway site about what this operation will do to your system by reading their FAQ on recovery by clicking here
If you do need to reformat and reinstall, there are other ways to do this that might prove easier in the long run, like making an XP sp3 slipstream installation CD.
On the other hand, if you are simply experiencing a slow down of your system and find your applications unresponsive, there are other means of correcting your present configuration that might work instead of doing a recovery install.
Please have a look at this article, including the links at the end.
It may help you to make up your mind...
If you do go with the reformat, even in the wake of a virus, please make backups of your system and documents. There's stuff you might find you need later on....

I want to do a repair of Windows XP PRO w/SP2 & 3

You really probably need to do a "system restore" or a "reformat" on your computer. If you choose to do either it will definitely erase all data on the computer. However when windows is reinstalled it will run much better and with less errors. This also gets rid of any viruses, registry mistakes, etc. Sometimes the only option when a computer gets too bogged down is to restore!

Some computers have system restore built in. Compaqs the computer prompts for the F10 key to be pressed at startup. Dells are Shift + F9 at startup. To see if yours has one look when it first starts up for the option. Also often you can order restore disks from the computers manufacturer, (since yours is custom you probably just need to reformat). Follow the instructions to easily restore your computer back to factory defaults.

A Reformat is a little more complicated. You must have a valid liscensed copy of windows to start with. Insert the disk into the computer and restart. Enter the BIOS (Usually F2 or Delete) and set the computer to boot to your CD Drive. Once this is done hit save and exit (usually F10). Follow the instructions to reformat the drive and reinstall windows.

Hope this helps!

Win vista uninstall

Put your window XP disk into the Disk drive. Start up your computer. When it asks you what Drive you want to install it on select C:\ (where Vista is) Say yes to deleting the current Operating System and follow the instructions from there.

You did say you wanted to Uninstall Vista!

If you mean Dual Boot Vista and XP, then you will need to create a Logical Partition of about 10 Gb to install XP on and when asked where to install select this partition. But note that XP will wipe the Boot sector clean of all other Operating Systems which means that if you want to Dual boot then you will have to reinstall Vista again to get Dual Boot functionality.

Windows XP Pro installed but computer boots to Home Edition

It sure is possible.
I would take it back to them and demand that WINXP Pro is put back in there and it boot correctly
They saved about 50 bucks putting in WINXP Home.

Sounds like a bunch of rookies trying to pull a fast one.
