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?

My PC requires long time to turn off.Why?


Your PC may require many maintainance procedures to clear data from your hard drive and to clean up fragmented and unused files. Your system may also be infected with a virus. Run disk tools in the help and support section to clean up your hard drive and run a good free virus checker and remover to clear up any viruses, spyware or malware which may have infected your system. If all else fails, you can always run system restore, which can be found under help and support also.
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.

APC Main , or "Apcmain.exe" is a type of spyware that has infected your computer. It goes by the name of SpywareStriker.

Luckily there is a program out there that will automatically scan and remove the threat for you. You can download that program here: Download

After doing that I would also recommend running your own spyware scan to verify your system is clean , I would recommend the program "AVG" for doing that....


This should get your system clean and running back in tip-top shape.

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.
