Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FZ240E/B Laptop

1 Answer

I downloaded some programs from the net that had alot of issue. I removed the programs and scanning my computer with both my norton and combro fix software. I keep seeing the items that norton was fixing. And at the end of the scan combro fix find system errors that needed fixed. 1.c:/windows/systems32/rtcs.exe 2.c:/windows/systems32/swim32.exe 3.c:/localsys64.exe 4.c:/windows/sysems32/64dlls.exe Now the when I reboot it starts with launch startup repair. I've run a hardware diagnostics that come back all clean. but when I try to reboot I get the message OS not detected on the C:/ drive. cannot boot into windows. So what do I do? and can I save my data?

Ok, well this shouldn't be too hard to figure out and recover, what has happened is when you removed those nasties, they "Broke" your installation,pretty much what they are designed to do, that way when/IF infected, again, you will not uninstall. What you need to do is a simple startup repair from your Windows Vista Install DVD. There is a Microsoft link below to assist you to fix your PC.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/startup-repair-frequently-asked-questions
link below is a pictorial step by step what to do. http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/91467-startup-repair.html

More help from this site. above.
Now if you cannot perform a startup repair for whatever reason, you will be best if you do the below procedure.
Click the "Start" button on your Task Bar. In Windows Vista, the "Start" button will look like a blue button with the Windows logo.
Locate and click the "Control Panel" option located inside of your "Start" menu. This will bring up your "Control Panel" screen.
Double-click the "Vaio Recovery Wizard" button. This will bring up a window.
Follow the instructions given during the Vaio Recovery Wizard. When prompted, confirm that you want to reset your Vaio to its original factory settings.
Allow the computer upwards of an hour to properly restore itself to factory settings.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial147.html
Below is how to factory restore without a disc.
Restart your Sony Vaio if it is already on. If it's off, turn it on.
Press the F12 key on your Sony Vaio keyboard. This will enter the computer into the built-in restore mode. Note that depending on the model of Sony Vaio, you may have to press either the F11 key or the ESC key to enter this restore mode. This must be done before your operating system begins to load. If you see the Windows logo appear on screen, you'll have to restart and try again.
Choose the option on screen that is most appropriate to your needs. You will be presented with three options: you can either create a set of recovery discs, attempt to repair your operating system's installation, or restore your operating system. Repairing your operating system will attempt to fix your computer without deleting any of your personal files. Restoring your operating system will delete everything on your hard drive and return your computer to its original factory settings.
Wait for the restore process to complete. Depending on the type of restore you've tried, you may have to wait as little as a few minutes and as much as an hour or more. When the process is finished, the computer will automatically restart itself.

I press on the icon of Norton and then appears me Aiks red and written : " An error has occured with norton internet security Error:8504,104 " how to solve this problem?


There are many reasons for the issue.
Please check if the computer's date and time is running correctly, if not please adjust it and run a live update.

If that does not work, please download Norton intelligent updater from www.norton.com/iu and click on download definitions. Please select the first file if your computer is a 32 bit operating system or select the 4th file. Save it to your desktop. Once the download is complete, double click the downloaded file. It will update your Virus definitions.
If that also doesn't work, you need to reinstall the Norton program on your computer.
To reinstall, follow these steps:
>> download the latest version of the Norton program from the link www.norton.com/nis11
>> save the file to your desktop
>> Once the download is complete, double click the downloaded icon
>> it will remove the existing version while re-installing
>> Once the removal of the older version is complete, you will need to restart the computer
>> after the restart, please click on the downloaded file once more if it does not come up automatically
>> install the Norton program
>> activate the program with the product key
>> your issue will be fixed

My laptop is infected with 44 viruses in which I cannot download a free antivirus, what shall I do to remove this, everytime I download antivirus it always infected.


There are 2 solutions to this problem. 1. Formatting of your laptop. as a result of formatting your laptop, you may loose valuable informations as well as programs. 2. Downloading a Norton 360 antivirus program into your laptop. after download, you can scan and fix viruses. this will work perfectly well. If your computer doesnt allows you to perform a download, simply download from another computer into an external device such as a USB device and transfer the Norton 360 setup flies to your laptop and run it. after installation process, scan for viruses and fix. I hope this helps.
