    Did the PC come with a restore disk?



    As for virus protection etc, I suggest that if your problems are related to a virus or worm etc, Then the best solution is to try clean your system.



    First off what operating system are you running, XP, VISTA?

    Second do you have any anti virus programs installed? If so which one and is it up to date?

That means your computer is infected with worms or trojan viruses. Try using system restore but you have to be in safe mode, all your data will not be erase or delete but some of your software will be erased. If system restore will not solve your problem the next step that your going to do is, you need to format your computer from scratch. That means you have to back up all your data or file(s) first before you will going to format your computer.

My computer is infected with a worm. I think it is named ''Total Security''. Andy suggestions? Can you advise how to remove it. I cannot open any programs.


Hi, Andy.

Reboot your system and continually press F8.

Choose Safe Mode

Login to your account or Administrator

Download, install and run Spybot (http://www.Spybot.com) and MalwareBytes (http://www.Malwarebytes.com)

If still a problem, I'd suggest accessing System Restore and roll back your system to an earlier date. Just note that your data will be rolled back as well.

Hope this helps.

Virus + Graphic Card Issues.


first of all you don't have a virus, it is worm/spyware. there are a lot of programs out there and they don't get rid of the same worms/spyware.
make a note of the site you are directed to and google this and you will come up with programs that will get rid of it.
you will have to pay, but it's worth it in the end.

Got virus laptop will not restore to earlier date takes about 12 to 15 minutes to sign on to computer. Would like to restore to origial state but that does not work either help me


You need to install a fresh copy of your operating system You need to be able to completely erase your hard drive and start fresh. If I were you I would consider changing the hard drive completely and starting fresh with a new copy of the operating system. It sounds like a worm and it has eaten through all of your restore data.

Procedure for total pc restore on emachines T5085


Did you receive a restore CD along with your eMachines computer when you purchased it? If you have such a disk, that is the easiest way to do a full system restore. If you do not have this disk, you can obtain one via emachines support. This is the most recommended method for a full restore. If your machine boots up fine, you can check to see if you have a restore point in the Windows System restore. If you ever had to turn the system restore off (for virus removal or something), you will not be able to to a complete restore this way.

Good luck

P.S. If this information was helpful, please rate this solution. Thanks!

Restting a desktop due to virus or worm


get rid of Macafee, it wont help

restore to the earliest point you can, will minimize the spread of the virus then

use an online scanner like http://www.pandasoftware.com/ActiveScan/
and install
AVG free http://free.grisoft.com
Avast free http://www.avast.com or
FProt
or another av system that works,
Macafee and Norton are definitely counterindicated

system restore should be reset to the maximum disk space allowable, the tweaks espoused by many, of reducing disk space for system restore causes problems like this.
resetting the restore size will not magically replace missing system restore points, they are gone, but will give you more days worth of repair time in future, it will happen again.

How do i Restore my Compaq Presario 1200 laptop to orginial store bought state?


You can restore your Laptop to Factory Setting by Tapping F11 at the startup which should bring the Recovery Screen. Follow the instructions to complete the Restore. If F11 does not work, you need to get Recovery CDs from HP.
