My computer will not open any program. it says that they are all infected. I cannot open the internet to download a virus remover. It will not open sysytem restore either.

Remove the disk-drive from your computer.
Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer.
Update the anti-virus software on that computer.
Do a "deep" scan of all the files on that "slave" disk-drive, to eliminate the virus.
Return the "cleaned" disk-drive to your computer.

Note that "best practises" state that you never can be 100% sure that you have "cleaned" your computer, and the only 100% solution is to buy a new (faster, bigger) disk-drive, and to install Windows onto it. Then, copy all your data files from the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive.

Hello, some laptops have special restore partitions on the hard drive, you press alt+F10,F10,F11 or F12 after powering on the laptop, and it goes into a restore
program that wipes your drive clean and returns the laptop back to the factory settings
Note all your programs and data will be deleted

Can't system restore


Ok, if you get a message your computer cannot be restored to this
date, the restore foldr is damaged.

There is actually something you can try, but i would suggest that you backup all the files you want to keep and the drivers you need and format your computer.

Method 1: Make sure that the System Restore service is running loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, use one of the following methods:
  • Look in Control Panel. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, and then type compmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Expand Services, and then click System Restore Services..

      If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, click Start on the toolbar to start it.
  • Open a Command Prompt window. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type CMD in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Type Net Start at the command prompt to make sure that the System Restore Service is up and is running.

      If the System Restore Service is not listed, type net start "System Restore Service", and then press Enter.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 2: Make sure that System Restore is enabled on the drives where you want System Restore enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the System Restore tab.
  3. If the System Restore is enabled, the Status column of a drive will show Monitoring.
    If not, you can clear to clear the Turn off System Restore on all drives, and then click OK to enable it.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 3: Make sure that you have sufficient disk space on all the drives where System Restore is enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. To check for free disk space, click Start, click Run, type diskmgmt.msc and then press Enter. Look at each drive System Restore is monitoring for free space.
  2. If the free space on any partition system restore is monitoring falls lower than 50 MB, System Restore will suspend and remove all restore points to free disk space. You should have already received a low free disk space message by now. System Restore will resume monitoring when free disk space reaches 200 MB.

    Note In most cases you do not have to have System Restore monitor Partitions/drives other than the one Windows is installed on. System Restore does not monitor data files.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 4: View the event logs to investigate System Restore service errors loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc /s in the Open box, and then press Enter.
  2. Click the System category.
  3. Click the Source tab to sort by name, and then look for "sr" or "srservice." Double-click each of these services, and then evaluate the event description for any indication of the cause of the problem.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 5: Boot in safe mode and run the System Restore tool loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To boot in safe mode follow these steps:
  1. Restart the computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, or after the BIOS post ends, start taping the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears.

    If the menu does not appear, restart the computer and try again.
  2. Select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER. As files load they will scroll down the screen.

    Note Safe mode uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows. The default Microsoft VGA driver is used for display at 640 X480 resolution and in 16 colors.
  3. Log on to the Administrator account. If a password was never set, leave the password blank and press ENTER or click the green arrow.
  4. Click No in the safe mode information screen to start System Restore.
  5. Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next to proceed to select a date with restore points available.
  6. Click Next to begin restoring the system to a previous state.
This comes from Microsoft's site under advanced system restore propperties, so if this does not work, then formatting the pc is the only sollution. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards

What happen if computer hard disk overload

your hard drive would eventualy crash and seeing that the drive is overloaded there wouldn't be sufficient space left for System Restore to run as it needs a fair amount of space to run. My advice is to always keep about 10% of your HDD size open for System Restore to run properly in case of a HDD crash or system crash.

File type,i couldn't open my drives correctly.

sounds like best solution is to restore windows to when it worked ok. this will unravel the chaos-ed registry and make it appear new again. you do have system restore enabled, right? open START->ALL PROGRAMS->ACCESSORIES->SYSTEM TOOLS->SYSTEM RESTORE and find a date to when it worked fine.
