Question about Toshiba PC Desktops

1 Answer

How do I reset the default settings to my laptop? I think that I may have a virus. I've already have done a System Recovery Command. I just want to basically erase everything (because I've already saved my files to an external hard drive) due to my laptop running much slower than normal. Can you help?

or if you are running XP


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

If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system. This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html

Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

More information here http://www.ask-the-computer-doc.com/comp...

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.

You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa...

Hard reset on the emaachines el1200 manually


Start your computer up in Safe Mode and see if you can get to your recovery management that way.
when you first boot up look for the F-8 key that will allow you to enter and select Safe Mode (only) that should allow you to get to your desktop.
