How to format my XP PC?

My PC with XP windows is showing a box stating that is infected with SPYWARE and the system is to be cleaned immediately and the system is restarting often. Restarting problem is solved by restoring to the previous date. But still the system has got more than 2000 finles infected and the warning to format/clean it immediately is popping up. I want to do it myself and how can I procure the necessary software to do this?

HI subhashini
Yes ur right formating ur windows Xp will need a software because you cannot format the primary drive(the drive in which the OS is installed commonly the C: drive).

The software available in the market are:
Drive Doctor
Partition Magic etc.

If you want some free stuff the please visit the following link.
http://www.download.com/3120-20_4.html?qt=formatting+hard+drive+softwares&tag=srch&tg=dl-20

download any of those free utilities and there u go
In case any difficulties am always here.

Wat to do with my drive c......i already remove half of its space but my drive c is not freing up its space....& my system restor is off i cannot make it on........pls help


First thing you need to do is run disk clean up. I dont' know what operating system you are using to give you exact instructions on how to find it. if you are using win xp, you go to start and then slide up to programs, go to accessories and find system tools then click on Disk clean up. When it opens, click the box next to all of the files to clean. use the up and down arrows to make sure you check them all and then click on the "ok' button to start the cleaning.

When its finished, you need to run disk defrag. You can find it in the same located as noted above for disk clean up. When you open it, choose your "C" drive and and then press "ok" to begin.

Disk clean up cleans and removes unnecessary files and defrag rearranges files to but all of your useable space forward in your hard drive to make your pc run better and faster.

When I type out a reply to a message it takes the words several minutes to finally appear and let me send them on...how can I get it to work faster?


if this is taking several minutes then you have problems with your system that are not really solvable in a standard forum.

The best thing i can tell you is the following. Check your memory amount and how many programs your running. Close all unneeded program in the taskar by the clock. Close all other apps not needed at the time.

Run a spyware removal rogram liek superantispywhere.com and an antivirus like avg.vom

Defrag your system:

xp: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314848
vista/7: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Improve-performance-by-defragmenting-your-hard-disk

clean all temp files. a great program to do this is ccleaner.com

If you have under 1GB of memory total for the system i woudl also suggest upgrading.

Rundll


Not familair with the yaabaa virus/spyware but usually this error is because your av got rid of the infection but didn't clean up the registry entry. So windows tries to load it and can't find the file so shows the error. So AVg killed it but it didn;t clean up afterwards.

It may not be a virus. It sounds more like a bad case of spyware. You may want to download, install, update, and run something like Malwarebytes AntiMalware. It sounds pretty serious, so it may need the attention of a PC technician to fully remove the infection.

Hope this helps!

Do I need windows xp disc to reinstall?


To format your hard-drive then re-install Windows? Yes, you would need one.

If you're attempting to rid yourself of a virus, you can definitely attempt a system restore. However, most modern viruses are smart, and the first thing they will do is integrate themselves into the system restore files. If however you have a system-restore disk (CD-ROM) which came with the computer, those will obviously not be infected (nor will they be infected) and can be used to restore the system to the state it was in when you first turned it on.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Mcafee legal instalation pops up and says trojan alert false ,thenxp anti virus pops up and says over 1000 viruses found .also i cant remove both pop ups hope you can help evelyn aged 72


This almost sounds like you have a maleware infection.
It almost sounds like the one that has been going around that claims to be Windows XP antivirus and that it found 450+ spyware infections (there is no such thing built into Windows XP).

I would suggest running SpyBot or Hyjack This to find out if you do have a malware infection.

I have a computer and I got a spyware in my sistem and I ned fix a window xp home agen but I dont have any CD program


if you are infected with spyware you have 2 options

1. you buy an antispyware software and you scan your Pc
make shure you dont scan your pc with one of those free ones on the internet, they offer free fixes but youre really getting more spyware. But you will not be 100 % clean you will still have spyware even if you scan your system 100 times.
this is with any antispyware or antivirus.

2. you erase everything and by everything i mean windows.

if youre pc is a hp , compaq you may have a restore partition.


if its a generic youll need to buy xp or vista


Dont try to do this yourself , take it to some one who knows what their doing , like geek squad for example.
