Question about HP Hewlett Packard Pavilion DV9500T 17" NOTEBOOK LAPTOP PC
What is the security program you have installed
it should have a scan section that you can order up a deep scan ( can take up to 6 hours ) that will isolate all malicious programs and allow you to delete or fix problems
if you have a good back up of all of your files and folders , reformat the hard drive as everything is on the hard drive
time to up grade to win 7 anyway as there are security fixes that are no longer suitable for the win xp os
microsoft stopped supporting win xp around 2 years ago so if you have been relying on win security it is well out of date

As to whether this is worth fixing. Yes.
I found replacements on Ebay running in the 3-4 hundred dollar range. To replace it not is up to you and what you want your laptop to do for you in the next three years. For example, do you want to play games that require a heavy setup such as first person shooters or role playing games. If your gaming habits are limited to playing virtual casino games or card games your safe with what you have now.
I'm asked all the time at this time of year what to get college bound kids for a laptop and I recommend a particular laptop that runs in the 5-7 hundred dollar range. This will have built in wireless and bluetooth and can handle office applications.
To troubleshoot your overheat intuition do this. At the right rear of your laptop, where the CPUs are almost always located is a set of venting vanes or you can call it an exhaust port. Boot up your laptop and press F10 or F2 which ever is shown on screen to access the laptop setup screens. Place your hand at the exhaust port see if you can fee air coming out immediately or after its been running for a minute or so.
Let me know if you do or do not feel air coming out.
The exhaust fan is easy to replace for we techs who have experience in laptops as the laptop needs to be disassembled. Some techs have never done this but most of us have and there are really good reasons to choose a local tech who has done this. Ask friends or neighbors and even your chamber of commerce for referrals. Of course, there are the yellow pages, but that can be hit or mis. Which ever you choose go to bbbonline.org and run a check on the business name. You can contact your city or county business office and ask for business licensing and find out what the business name is actually licensed under. These people at licensing do not collect information on who is and who isn't any good. On our home page here there is a search box to find a repair shop based on your zip code.
But doing this yourself will depend on several things. Do you or have you done your own car engine repairs. Dishwasher repair, vacuum repairs. You get my drift on this. If your a true handy man you could do this and I or another top laptop tech can talk you through this. It involves removing your keyboard and wrist rest by removing screws accessed from the bottom. After this you will see the guts on your machine. The exhaust fan is held down by two or three screws and has a power plug you disconnect from the main circuit board. The part itself is cheap enough.
So, if your uneasy removing the keyboard and rest from your laptp and listening to the large cracks as the locking tabs release you'll be okay. There are other dos and donts that are quite important so don't assume this is all you have to do. Mistakes happen as well as accidents so don't ever just dive into a PC or laptop unless you've had one to one training.
Again, check the exhaust port once you get your laptop into the bios setup screens with the F10 or F2 key and let me know. Because if this is fine you have a much bigger problem... money wise.

I know I just had the same problem today...when getting into the bios...try using a "multi-bay" boot and have the cd booted first then the hd...That's the only way mine worked to "trick" the system to boot from the cd...it took a few times of stalling after that but with frustration and regathering with patience, it finally worked...you might have problems with the devices not being recognized after it does load unless you have an easy driver set to install from cd...otherwise you might have to manually install them to make them operate correctly. *hint: using the device manager to see any '?s' and reinstall drivers helped me*

You are still infected. You need another computer to download the program to and then put it on a flash drive, then install the program on the infected computer with the flash drive and run it. Click on the link below for the program I use. You did not tell us what you already tried, but this program is good for disinfecting 95% of the nastyies out there. Intsll and let the program update. Run the quick scan only and when the scan is complete it will ask you to click on the "show results" button, do so and it will list all the infections on your system. Click on the "remove Selected" button, this will either delete, fix or quarentine the affected files.
