    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?

Keyboard jumps back when i'm typing ne56r10u

Run an anti-virus scan. This usually caused by a virus.

Or you can go to safe mode.. Restart your computer and tap F8. Choose safe mode using your arrow keys and press enter. Once you are inside safe mode, try typing and check if the problem is still there. If no problem is detected, then do a system restore to restore your computer to a known good state.

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Select a restore point. Make sure that the date is when your computer was not acting strange. Launch the restore and let it finish. Check after the restoration.

If it doesn't work, please drop me a line.

I hope this helps!

Hi can you help please,, My laptop has blank screen with a little white flashing line in top corner ??? Any ideas.

Welcome to Fixya

This means that windows is already corrupted. Possible cause would be virus issue, recent software installation or windows data corruption. You can still use your computer by restoring it to the origincal facotry state. Turn off the computer and press the small button right beside the power button. It will restore your computer back to original factory state.

Please take note that restoring the computer back to the factory state will delete everything inside the computer. The result would be like you open the computer out from the box.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Can't delete viruses: i'm using antivir guard and there are a lot of viruses that can't be deleted namely worm/mabezat,w32/mabezat, tr/dropper.gen

boot the system into safe mode by hitting the f8 key after the bios flashes onscreen but before the windows load screen comes up try cleaning the system in safe mode...also try using windows help support and the system restore utility and take the system back to before u had the virus.
if this wont work for you you need to seek a local professional

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.

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
and install
AVG free
Avast free or
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.

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.
