Restoring my computer

I think I got a virus when I let a friend use my laptop. I tried to restore it back to an earlier date like it states in the support manual but it did not help. When I turn on the computer ad log on with my password it s a blue screen with no icons and a message telling me to install anti virus and spyware. That's it. What can I do?

Has a virus. Has Norton. Need to restore back to earlier date. How?

Helloviksai, the best thing to do to recover the Computer back to an 'Earlier Date!' Is to do a "System Restore." "Follow these instructions carefully!" The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button," paul7of9_50.jpg from the Desktop.

Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories."

  • Now, select the "System Tools." You will see in the next window that opens!
  • "System Restore." paul7of9_119.jpg
  • "This is very important! "
  • "Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut!"
  • It will start to look for the last known time of a change in the Computer.
  • ie; "Virus Infection." paul7of9_52.jpg

Important!: The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run; so be patient!Warning:"Do not try to do any type of work. Do not 'touch' the [Keyboard] for any reason."

  • Let the (Restore) run it's configurations.
  • Once the "System Restore" finds the correct "Date and Time" of the event?
  • Choose the Date closest to the time of the 'occurrence'. paul7of9_120.jpg
  • Next, click on the [Next Button]. paul7of9_121.jpg
  • Now, once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer.
  • "The System Restore will 'run' for a while; so once again be patient!."
  • The computer will then; "Shutdown and Restart."
  • "Lo-gin" if you have to; but!
!Attention: "Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop 'window' opens.
"Because the {System Restore}, 'will' still be running."
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the {Restore} of your System was successful!

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

Cannot detect usb

Please try and restore your PC to an earlier date. Open the control panel , open back up/ restore and choose the program restore point.
If this wont solve reinstall the drivers or else there can be virus in your system that needs an OS installation with the drivers installed once again. have a good anti-virus installed immediately

I recently restored my computer to it's factory state to try to remove a virus, but now i cant get past the black start up screen, and now i need a system repair disc and i dont have one

Try to go to the recovery console rather than restoring to a prior date. This will get it back to factory state to remove the virus, in my experience.

Computer keeps saying that a recent hardware or software change might be the cause tried everything

Set your notebook to be restored to an earlier date with the installed software.
So choose to open the control panel , click on BACKUP/RESTORE , open the settings and choose the set up date and click to restore.
If there is no response after the restoration , then you will need to reinstall the OS.
Clear your PC of any virus /malwares with a virus scan.

From another computer, download the "Malicious Software Removal Tool" from and copy the file to a USB memory-stick.

Carry the memory-stick to your computer, and run that M.S.R.T. tool, to see if it can "remove" the virus.

Laptop keyboard has stopped working

Use system restore to restore your PC back to a date before you began having virus problems.

Start Menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore

When you start System Restore, it will ask if you want to restore to an earlier time, choose a date from before the virus problems started and follow the prompts from there. Your computer will restart, the restore process usually takes 5-15 minutes and then your system reboots.

Let me know if this works for you.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

make sure you are selecting a date that is
bold ,
some viruses will stop you using the restore function,run anti virus and anti spy ware

then try this:
go to start/run and type in cmd

then type in the black box sfc/scannow,

have your o/s disc ready as this will check all the system files and replace any that has got corrupted, from the o/s disc.

good luck
