As long as all important document are saved and all important programs are re-install-able then no system restore should not do any harm. BUT! I would still recommend backing up the files on either a USB flash drive OR CD Roms you should back up your files every couple or months anyway give or take a month depending on how much and what you use the computer for.

Hello,

Yes, everything will be lost when you use system recovery, but if you can do backup you files in your computer, you can do system recovery., So if you cannot back up your files maybe i suggest you to scan your computer online. www.precisesecurity.com/antivirus/online-scan.htm

and then uninstall all the unwanted programs, after scanning you should install antivirus, i recommend AVG, free edition, (search in google)downloadable. if you connected to the computer.

but if you has been backup you can proceed to system recovery using the CD installation disk.

may this help, melnavz

PS:
pls do not rate me if my solution not solve the issue and you need more further information. but if is invaluable solution rate me fixya.

Restore factory settings without disk


when you first power on the machine hit F11 (for most machines) on the keyboard repeatedly until the recovery screen pops up. Click on advanced options, click system recovery, then click OK when prompted. the recovery process will begin and take about 25 minutes on a 5400rpm hard drive. then you must reinstall everything that isn't factory.
NOTE: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA THAT ISN'T PREINSTALLED. AFTER THE RECOVERY, YOU MUST INSTALL THE INTERNET SOFTWARE, VIRUS SOFTWARE, ALL UPDATES (THERE'LL BE A LOT!!), AND PERSONAL SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. BACK UP ALL DATA BEFORE YOU BEGIN. ONCE THE RECOVERY PROCESS STARTS, IT CANNOT BE STOPPED, OR THE SYSTEM WILL GET CORRUPTED. :(
Hopefully this will help.
P.S. Give this recovery process about a day to get it over with. Don't rush it for best results, and use pc decrapifier to remove all the bloatware and trial ware installed by hp on your pc.

Hp compaq dc7100 to factory settings because of a virus


Read the Manual. It will tell you how to get into Factory Restore.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP Support" or "Compaq Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for Factory Restore or System Recovery.



Why not just kill the virus or do a System Restore which will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you got the virus. System Restore will not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). System Recovery or Factory Restore will delete everything and set your computer back to when you first purchased it.



To get to System Recovery click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a date and time (Restore Point) before you go the virus.



You could also try downloading and installing MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.




Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

This problem is occurs when your windows was corrupted. Insert recovery disk and then start your PC. Recover your windows. This will need to format your C drive. After this, start windows, it will start normally as before.

My presario SR1920NX gradually sloed down and


You more than likely will have to reformat due to a corrupt system...I would try first going into safemode (unless i misunderstood ) and to to start,run type "msconfig" and then go to startup tab....uncheck anything you just installed....caution: if you dont know what it is is...windows/system then dont uncheck it because that will actually cause the error you describe. Or try un-installing what you recently install in safemode. if you cant access safemode then use the recovery mode to recover the system files...usually the computer will ask for the windows XP cd. good luck...hope this helps

System recovery not working


If you have windows xp, here is what you can do>>
This is called a "system recovery" (destructive)
I do not have the disk either. My windows XP, was already loaded on my computer, when I bought it. These instructions, will clean everything off of your hard drive, so you must back up anything that you want to save. I have done this three times, and I got these instructions, from a computer tech. When starting your computer, tap the F-10 key. click on next-yes-and follow the instructions, that come up on your screen. When you are finished, your computer, will look just like it did, when you first bought it. Do these steps, in order, when finished.
1. set up windows firewall
2. windows update (click express)
3. install your anti-virus program (update)
4. install anti-spyware (update)
5. Install service pack 2...Good Luck..
All your drivers etc. will reload on your computer, without a disk. All this information is stored on a hidden partition .. Good Luck

Do a recovery from boot up. Press F12 after you power up the unit. Should take you to a boot list. or read your manual and it will tell u what to press to get to recovery. Do a full system recovery.

Laptop help again :)


Don't panic, the situation is not too bad, as the laptop's hardware is still all ok.
The Ghost software probably did not work because you did not make a complete bootable ghost CD from Windows when computer was working, or you did not do the ghosting procedure properly, or finally the ghost cd is corrupted.
if F11 does not work, it means that the recovery partition on hard disk had probably been corrupted by the virus.
Check if your laptop is covered by some insurance or extended guaranty to cover expenses for system reinstall.
Best way to proceed is asking a copy of restore cd fro your model from HP.
Contact them and ask how to obtain a copy of CD in your region, In UK they charge you £25 or so to send you the disk.
If for some reason you cannot get the restore cd, you will have to re-install system from a generic windows cd, possibly the same Windows version to validate the licence on Windows sticker at the bottom of your laptop (eg. Vista Home, XP home edition, XP professional etc.).
If you have to use a generic Windows disk you will need to download all drivers from HP. and install them after installing Windows.
Also a good choice can be locating a computer repair shop in your area and having the system re-install done using the licence number printed on the sticker at the bottom of your laptop. This job usually is not too expensive, in London, where I work, we charge £45 to do system restore.
Good luck.

Won't Boot - System File Missing or Corrupt


have you tried working in dos and copying the folder fromt he recovery partition?
you could also see about getting a cd from a friend.For that you would have to go to someone using the same OS, then go to My Control Panel, and in there, tell it to make a boot disk.

if neither of these work, then i suggest getting an external drive hooked up to save the information and then, unfortunately, re-installing.
