Removal of incomplete, unwanted os setup

Sir,
When I removed virus in my computer, I found few of my files missing. I tried to upgrade the os with the same CD I upgraded (or repaired) earlier. Instead of upgrading, the cd asked for SP 2 and when I was unable to provide the same, the system automatically created a second OS and prompting me to boot from one of the OS. Further the system has become slow. Kindly help how to remove the unwanted, incomplete setup from my PC
Thanks

Hey sorry about your pc sir..

OK first let me explain to you the problem you are having and the various ways we can solve it ..

ok the reason some of the files were removed is cause they were infected..
The cd you have is windows Xp, but during windows updates you updated with service pack 2, so obiously the system will ask for windpws xp cd with service pack 2,, (MICROSOFT BUGS :( )

now you have a mbr with 2 operating systems. cause the main mbr is non functionaly a secondary oe was created leaving your current file system intact, but with the bad effects of having 2 operating systems on the same partation.. hence slow sloppy behaviour..

we can remove boot sector and rewrite mbr to remove the bad operating system but that would not help the speed..

Here is what i believe is your best solution and the one i recommend..

1.) BURN all your important data to a dvd or cd so you wont loose it

2.) Boot off the the windows xp cd.

3.) delete the entire partation and format the drive(full format)

4.) reinstall windows and drivers and software..

NB.. when windows ask if you want to repair select no and install a fres copy,, when it ask if you want to leve the file system intact say no, delete the partation, and it will say unpartationed space, hit enter there and select full format..

Sir, I use the window 7 home basic in my laptop. but the problem is internet via wire do not work properly for the last few days. please tell me solution. thanks


It seems that there is a virus infection in the computer.

Please remove the connectors at the computer and the Router as well and replace it.

Please check the Internet connection using a different browser.

Please reset the Internet Explorer and check the issue.

Run ccleaner application to tuneup, this will remove all unwanted files like temporary files and other unused files and run registry cleaner.

This should resolve the issue.
If problem persists, please check if you can connect to the Internet using different computer.

Computer is very slow


Try defraging.
If your willing to spend money
get more RAM it worked for me, ask someone or look it up, about how much ram your computer can "handle" and buy the RAM stick according to your pc max capacity

No, in almost all cases upgrading your computer wil only make it run slower. If you want to improve the computers speed there a couple things you can do. 1) Run spyware/virus scans, 2) Add RAM to increase computer speed, 3) Defrag

Solution: 1: Create restore point and take registry backup.

A big NO NO: It's not recommended to edit registry before upgrading a PC or even making a slow PC faster as some registry cleaners can scrape out old registry entries of which some may be necessary to keep some programs running! And avoid websites trying to sell you something unnecessary.

I have a Mac 450Mhz Power PC G4 with OS X 10.4.11. and 1.75 GB SDRAM. It runs incredibly slow. We have downloaded many songs from Limewire. I just heard that MACs need antivirus and anti spyware...


Well, there are a variety of reasons that can consequently drag down the performance of your Mac. Meanwhile, there are certain ways through which you can considerably speed up your Mac machine. For example, you can reset the browser settings to regularly clear useless caches and history, get rid of all unwanted widgets from the dashboard through the Dashboard control panel, remove unnecessary applications, find out & delete those duplicated files, or if your Mac is running out of memory, try upgrading the system RAM to boost its performance etc. However, if you prefer a more efficient way to speed up your Mac, try the following all-in-one Mac speedup tool as it can help resolve all issues in just a few clicks.
