I have a Gateway Laptop that is 6860fx, and I wish to do a factory reset on it. The reason is that the laptop is infected with many pop-ups.

factory reset removes everything
why not go to settings and just remove pop up setting --turn it off and delete pop-ups

My Nokia 5800 ExpressMusic is suspectedly infected by a virus which hid all data on memory card except SMADxxx and AUTORUN which is locked by SMAD. Therefore its galery is empty and some other functions...

Best solution is to reformat the memory card and make sure that the pc you are going to use is also not infected by a virus. After that, it would also help to restore the phone to factory settings. The only downside is, all your files will be deleted but you can always make a back up before resetting the settings.

Sir when i play songs...write msg...or dial the call...after 2mints gone the screen gone to white.and song , msg and call is disconnected.or close..give me the solution..i am very upset

hi, i think two things is causing this,
1. it could be that the phone is infected with virus, so i would advice you to scan your phone for virus.
2. you could equally try to set your phone back to factory setting but please NOTE: IF YOU ARE SETTING YOUR PHONE BACK TO FACTORY SETTING, MAKE SURE YOU BACK-UP ALL YOUR CONTACTS, MESSAGES AND ANY APPLICATION YOU SAVED ON THE PHONE MEMORY to avoid lossing them after restoring to factory settings.
