How to remove virus from dell laptop without using any antivirus

I'm confused , why not use a Anti Virus? If you want to remove you will have to make time to install a Anti Virus. The alternative will require more time. A Full System Recovery. A new Laptop should have a Trial Version of Anti Virus, run a full scan. OR download Anti Virus and Anti Malware at FILEHIPPO: You can find many freeware and shareware programs. If you don't have time, take it to a qualified computer tech and pay the person to remove it.

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".

Window sercurity say's there's no anti-virus running.

If you are positive you have any anti virus installed, you can disable the notification.

Click Start, then go to Control Panel. In Control Panel, open Security Center.

On the left hand side of the window, click " Change the way security center alerts me"

Uncheck Virus Protection and click OK.

I have system mechanic 6 and have turned off the anti virus (and un installed) and now use Avast free edition on one laptop and AVG free edition on the other. Both are good AVG is easier to use but Avast is better and looks a bit flashier and has more features.
you will have to google avast for the address as I can't remember it and it's not viewable in the program.(alwil software I think)

Computer went to safe mode because system mech cant find DVPAPI requied for anti virus. Can I download a copy. Symantic uninstaller must have removed it.

Reinstalling the Authentium Antivirus program should fix that. Some software has a repair feature whenyou try to re-install, if so do that.

Don't forget to rate the advice!
