Question about Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer
The only way of recovering the PC is through the Recovery partition..
The correct way of accessing the recovery partition is this way:
1. Turn on the computer
2. As the computer starts, press <F8> on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
NOTE: Please don't hold the F8 key continuously, Just click the F8 intermittently (ie, pressing and releasing and pressing and releasing)
You must press <F8> before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press <F8> after the Windows logo appears on the screen, the Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
After doing this, you should definetly get advance boot menu, beacuae the virus can no way harm this as you can login to windows
3. Press the <Down Arrow> on the keyboard to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press <Enter>.
