Question about Gateway GT5656 Desktop PC
I would recommend downloading and installing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware(MBAM) and Spybot Search & Destroy. If you're not able to download these using your computer use a computer that can access the Internet. Disable System Restore then run both MBAM and Spybot and see what they find.
If you're using Internet Explorer to browse the internet check the connection settings.
Go to the Control Panel and open Internet Options.
Click the Connections tab
Click LAN Settings
Verify all check boxes are unchecked.

If you do a System Restore to Factory - your computer will be returned to the state it was in when it first was powered on. Everything that you have added, changed, installed, updated etc. will be gone.
This mean unless you have the original disks (or copies) and cd-keys or serial numbers saved on paper or in emails*, you may have to repurchase them again. The same holds true for any MP3s you purchased and downloaded. Any photos that you do not have backed up elsewhere or printed out, will be lost forever. Basically, if it is not in online storage such as an email account (*and you opted to leave the message on the server instead of deleting them when downloaded), external disk, or printed out - it won't be seen or heard again until you buy it again.
You should look into virus and malware removal if any of these things are important to you. Paying for virus / malware removal will probably be significantly cheaper than having to buy just of or two of the programs you lost.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.
