Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Okay I have an emachines computer and when I started it up the first time I started up Internet and didn't give enough time for the yahoo messenger to start and it froze, and i pressed the power button on my plug, okay now when i start it in the screen says windows did not successfully start and it gives couple of options to start and either one i choose it just restarts the computer and goes to the same screen HELP I NEED THIS COMPUTER FOR WORK!
That's great, since you need it for work I'll charge you my going rate, OK?
The simplest way of curing this is to put your machine's drive in a USB enclosure so you can use a working machine's antivirus/anti-spyware on it, and then put it back once that much curative force has been exerted, so you can work and install antivirus software as planned.
Otherwise, tell Windows to start up in safe mode or with debug messages, and be totally patient with it, because (I'm thinking) some software you recently installed or updated, or a virus you got (were you running an antivirus when connected to the internet? No? Yep.) is freezing your machine on you.
Those startup options where it throws out a log of what it's starting to boot up are important, because they clue you in to what actually wrecked things. Not only that, but if you start with diagnostic messages and it freezes...the last things it put on the screen are pretty much to blame! You are then tasked with finding out what was wrong with those things (e.g. you never wanted them, they're incompatible with your machine, they're damnable Yahoo software, etc.) and getting your system to run without them or with fixed versions of them; or with fixed configuration files for the good programs. It might be handy to have a book on your OS's internals (e.g. by Minasi) handy.

If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.
You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.
You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

Use a memory device such as a rewritable DVD or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings.
Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard and mouse. Bring up the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."
Navigate to "eMachines" and then "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the tab labeled "Restore," which is located at the top of the window.
Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and then click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default."
Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process.
Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appears on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.
