Some dells are preconfigured with a restore partition. I wouldnt know if your unit still have this. but try this

Upon Boot up. (when you see the dell logo) Press Control F11 and see if it brings you up to a menu that would restore your laptop to factory configuration.

Follow the oncsreen instructions and you should be able to reinstall it automatically


Assuming you dont have the restore partition anymore then you need to to do it the conventional way and that means having all those recovery disc (hope you still have them). Insert the first disc and boot from there.

You are going to have to use the restore/recovery process to get past this. The virus corrupted a major file and now it wont boot. I hope you made backups.

My computer has 38 viruses


save anything important to a disk or usb drive. restart your computer and press alt f-10, it will start the system restore process to reset your computer to factory settings...erasing whatever viruses you have. although im guessing you were told this by a anti-virus software company that loaded itself onto your computer and wants you to buy their software to get rid of the viruses..its a scam..they put the viruses there in the first place. once you reset your comp, you can go to cnet.com and download avg antivirus free edition. that should take care of those kinds of things.

Respected sir.....my comp.is affected by trojan horse virus..i got msg continously that unathosrized access ur comp..and harmful virus is detected on ur pc.sir how can i remove the virus. ...


Sorry to see you got infected, but I'm sure I can help with that.

Go to: www.download.com
In the Search bar, your going to search for each of these programs, download and install them one at a time.

1. CCleaner
2. Malwarebytes
3. Spybot Search and Destroy
4. Superantispyware Free Edition

Open them one at a time, and run them after checking for Updates. Do a Full/Complete scan to the pc, remove whatever they find and reboot when asked. After running all 4 of these, it should hammer out all the viruses from your PC.

Cheers!

Acer Aspire One error when trying to connect to internet: iexplore.exe - Ordinal Not Found The ordinal 650 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll. Sometimes the number (650) is...


1. Install another browser: For e.g. FLOCK
2. Are you able to browse?

If so then we have isolated the problem to Internet Explorer:

1. Which version of IE are you using?

Either way:
1. uninstall it completely
2. Download and reinstall the latest version of IE

And just in case please do a VIRUS SCAN:
1. DiskClean up of C drive (always do this before a virus scan)
2. Total Virus Scan of Hard Disk (make sure Virus application is updated first)

About System Restore:
Windows does not allow you do to a restore from before it happened because it did not save any restore date from prior to (perhaps system restore is not enabled so be sure to double check this); therefore:

1. You're going to have to try to fix this isolated problem manually

OR

2. RESTORE to factory settings: take all ur data off and restore to factory settings and then put ur data back thereafter.

I have an Acer laptop to work on that has numerous viruses on it and I was wondering if Acer D2D recovery will remove them?


system restore vs system recovery:


a system restore will restore the system to a set point in time. this will not remove viruses.

a system recovery will reinstall windows to its original factory state by utilizing a recovery partition. this will remove viruses. however, it will also remove any data and software that has been installed on the system.

back up if needed but keep in mind that you could potentially be backing up viruses. especially if the user wants to back up music that was gotten from a peer to peer site such as limewire. this downloads are typically ripe with infections so do so at your own risk.

it is not possible to back up software.
