If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

To restore it to factory settings, if you have the CD(s) that came with the laptop, put it in and boot up and press the F key associated to system restore that shows up at the bottom of the screen.

Antivirus wont turn on in settings


Is your Anti Virus Up-To-Date? Will it update? Depending on the Brand of software(you didn't post), Anti Virus, that's installed. The windows Security Center may not recognize it. Open Security Center and change Notification of Anti Virus. First make sure it hasn't been compromised, if you are infected the infected file will shut down your Anti Virus. Use this freeware program to verify a clean system , MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Depending on the size of your HDD, it may take hours. Post results and your Anti Virus Software Manufacturer.

I got some virus but i removed it with msn virus remover now i open it and i find it blocking my contacts is it still infected?


Hi and welcome hummymoh !
Probably msn virus wasn't efficient enough . Delete it and install Microsoft Security essentials from : http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
Let it make a full scan of your system but even this might not be sufficient .
Download and install malwareBytes from : http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
Make an additional full scan with this malware killer .
Everything is free , easy and safe .
Best regards .

My pc is infected, and I need to reboot it to its factory settings.


Restore your Laptop to Factory Settings is an EASY utility BUILT into Windows -- it CLEANS EVERYTHING...computer and hardware. But, it is HANDY. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('.intro .thumbnail a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a06/6v/d1/reboot-laptop-back-factory-settings-800X800.jpg'); }); Rebooting your laptop back to its factory settings restores your computer and its hardware to its original settings when it was purchased. This is helpful when troubleshooting major hardware and system performance issues. It can also be used to fix virus related issues. Restoring your computer to its factory settings is similar to performing a clean install of your operating system. Windows uses a utility program called System Restore that allows you to restore your computers settings to a specific date.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Turn on your computer, and then click on the "Start" menu icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Select "All Programs," and then click on the "Accessories" drop-down menu.
  2. Step 2 Scroll down to "System Tools," and then select the "System Restore" program and wait for it to open.
  3. Step 3 Select the "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" option, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. A window with a calendar will appear.
  4. Step 4 Click on the back arrow in the calendar's window. Click on the back-arrow until you have reached the date you either purchased or installed Windows on your Notebook. Select the appropriate date, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. Your computer will automatically restart.

How do i restore factory setting ,i have da back up cds


Go to Start>Run type in msconfig and hit enter. In the startup disable all. Restart. On another machine download Combofix to a thumb drive/USB key and transfer it to infected machine. Run Combofix following instructions to the letter. Reboot. Download Malwarebytes to a thumbdrive/USB key from another pc and run on the infected one. Check Tools, Internet Options, Connections, Lan settings and make sure proxy settings are not checked. That should make it okay to run your virus programs.

Cannot install security system on comp. I scanned it and came up with 44 viruses etc...


John, most AV software will not install if it determines your computer is infected. It's kind of a Catch-22 - can't install AV, since you have a virus (or 44...) and you can't remove the virus since you don't have AV software!

Try using this free, reputable online scanner to clean the machine, then reboot, and do your install again. Keep in mind that the scan may take a long time, and that you may need to reboot and rescan until it's completely cleaned.
