Odds are U do not have a virus, go out and get a Sheild Deluxe or one similar to run on vista. If it is, it will clean it up if not then consider repairing the os or reloading it from your recovery cd.

Hello Garnie
Happy Holidays!
Well, if you don't have the OS cd, (that it is suppose to have it) or at least on one hard drive partition. and licence. You have to see what kind of virus you got? send me the name.,May be there is a tool to remove it. Or see your manual of your PC, to see if you got a OS partition to reformat your hard drive to factory settings. usually F2 or F10 key.
good Luck

Hey i got about 28 virus an would like to reset my computer to its origional from when i brought it can u help please


In order to do that your would need a windows (XP,Vista, Or 7) CD with a working CD Key.

If you only have virus's i would recommend this:
Boot into safe mode with networking:
Tap F8 after turning your computer on until you see a screen with many options, choose safemode with networking.
Then once your computer boots up, download and update malwarebytes: malwarebytes.org
Then run a fullscan and follow the directions to remove the virus's. Dont restart yet when its finished.

Open your Internet explorer and other browsers you use, and check for proxies:

OK, first of all the blue screen appears only when windows is loaded so that means that you are still not rebooting from the cd, Turn on the computer and immediately press either the F1 key or the F2 key at one-second intervals to enter the BIOS setup utility. As the Guys at Gateway.com say it.
Then go to a screen called boot sequence which should allow you to choose from where the computer is going to restart from. make sure that the CD drive is first on this list then SAVE AND EXIT. after that, the windows vista cd should work.
make sure you press whatever key it wants you to press to enter to windows vista.

I just read on another website that the program "Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite" is the problem. It gets installed along with Wordperfect and it needs to be un-installed. I had the same problem with the 2 pop-ups and then when I tried to put in a cd with pictures on it, my computer crashed. I have just un-installed the Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite on my computer and the messages are gone and I can run cd's again!!
