There is no way to boot into safe mode and run system restore?
Alternatively, most systems have a built in partition (accessed through the F8 menu at bootup) that will allow you to restore the computer to factory condition.

My computer just started misbehaving this evening; 1. Task manager just got disabled without me disabling it. I tried enabling it through 'run', but i got another error message saying registry...


Yes the probable cause of this was a missed behaved anti virus program. Formating your computer and installing a new operating system would work, but there is still one option to perform.Why not try to repair your xp installation instead . If you run your xp operating system setup disk, At first you will be prompted to repair or install a new operating system, then press enter to install a new os. After pressing f8 it will search for a recent xp installation . select repair and leave the current file system intact no changes. But if you really want to change your operating system XP to Win7, yes it will work with your computer, but the softwares and programs that you'll need will also have to be compatible with win7. The most important thing here is your computers drivers installation. If you have your computer drivers installation cd, you could proceed. Have a nice day .

I recently restored my computer to it's factory state to try to remove a virus, but now i cant get past the black start up screen, and now i need a system repair disc and i dont have one


Try to go to the recovery console rather than restoring to a prior date. This will get it back to factory state to remove the virus, in my experience.

I recently acquired a virus that I'm unable to remove from my netbook. Can I restore my netbook to factory settings to remove this virus? If so, how can I do this?


Yes ACER has a factory backup on the 160gb versions like urs. Good luck calling their tech support their complete useless idiots. I had to go through 2 days of searching to find the F key boot restore feature. You have to hold down an F key and another key I was thinking the ctrl while in preboot. I cant remember exactly but u can surf google and find it like I did. But yes a format will get rid of a virus.

You don't need to get another hard drive. You can just format (wipe) your hard drive and reinstall Windows, the device drivers and a
anti-virus program.
You need a CD of Windows and the product installation code. The product installation code is on the Windows label on the the back or side of the computer.
Did you get a Windows CD with either of your computers?
If so you can use this CD to install Windoes.

How do i get rid of a W32.SillyFDC virus


The following instructions pertain to all current and recent Symantec antivirus products, including the Symantec AntiVirus and Norton AntiVirus product lines.
  1. Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
  2. Update the virus definitions.
  3. Run a full system scan.
  4. Delete any values added to the registry.

For specific details on each of these steps, read the following instructions.

1. To disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP)
If you are running Windows Me or Windows XP, we recommend that you temporarily turn off System Restore. Windows Me/XP uses this feature, which is enabled by default, to restore the files on your computer in case they become damaged. If a virus, worm, or Trojan infects a computer, System Restore may back up the virus, worm, or Trojan on the computer.

Windows prevents outside programs, including antivirus programs, from modifying System Restore. Therefore, antivirus programs or tools cannot remove threats in the System Restore folder. As a result, System Restore has the potential of restoring an infected file on your computer, even after you have cleaned the infected files from all the other locations.

Also, a virus scan may detect a threat in the System Restore folder even though you have removed the threat.

For instructions on how to turn off System Restore, read your Windows documentation, or one of the following articles:

Note: When you are completely finished with the removal procedure and are satisfied that the threat has been removed, reenable System Restore by following the instructions in the aforementioned documents.

For additional information, and an alternative to disabling Windows Me System Restore, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article: Antivirus Tools Cannot Clean Infected Files in the _Restore Folder (Article ID: Q263455).

2. To update the virus definitions
Symantec Security Response fully tests all the virus definitions for quality assurance before they are posted to our servers. There are two ways to obtain the most recent virus definitions:
  • Running LiveUpdate, which is the easiest way to obtain virus definitions.

    If you use Norton AntiVirus 2006, Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition 10.0, or newer products, LiveUpdate definitions are updated daily. These products include newer technology.

    If you use Norton AntiVirus 2005, Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition 9.0, or earlier products, LiveUpdate definitions are updated weekly. The exception is major outbreaks, when definitions are updated more often.


  • Downloading the definitions using the Intelligent Updater: The Intelligent Updater virus definitions are posted daily. You should download the definitions from the Symantec Security Response Web site and manually install them.

The latest Intelligent Updater virus definitions can be obtained here: Intelligent Updater virus definitions. For detailed instructions read the document: How to update virus definition files using the Intelligent Updater.

3. To run a full system scan
  1. Start your Symantec antivirus program and make sure that it is configured to scan all the files.

    For Norton AntiVirus consumer products: Read the document: How to configure Norton AntiVirus to scan all files.

    For Symantec AntiVirus Enterprise products: Read the document: How to verify that a Symantec Corporate antivirus product is set to scan all files.


  2. Run a full system scan.
  3. If any files are detected, follow the instructions displayed by your antivirus program.
  4. Delete the autorun.inf file from writeable removable devices, if necessary.
Important: If you are unable to start your Symantec antivirus product or the product reports that it cannot delete a detected file, you may need to stop the risk from running in order to remove it. To do this, run the scan in Safe mode. For instructions, read the document, How to start the computer in Safe Mode. Once you have restarted in Safe mode, run the scan again.


After the files are deleted, restart the computer in Normal mode and proceed with the next section.

Warning messages may be displayed when the computer is restarted, since the threat may not be fully removed at this point. You can ignore these messages and click OK. These messages will not appear when the computer is restarted after the removal instructions have been fully completed. The messages displayed may be similar to the following:

Title: [FILE PATH]
Message body: Windows cannot find [FILE NAME]. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

4. To delete the value from the registry
Important: Symantec strongly recommends that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify the specified subkeys only. For instructions refer to the document: How to make a backup of the Windows registry.
  1. Click Start > Run.
  2. Type regedit
  3. Click OK.

    Note: If the registry editor fails to open the threat may have modified the registry to prevent access to the registry editor. Security Response has developed a tool to resolve this problem. Download and run this tool, and then continue with the removal.

  4. Navigate to the following registry subkeys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\"load"

  5. In the right pane, delete any values associated with the worm.


  6. Exit the Registry Editor.

I cant open any virus scan program and cant open system restore


Hi,
I strongly suggest that you remove Zone Alarm from your computer before you start to install any other virus scan program as its presence prevent other programs to work when you try to install them. For sure I know about it!!!!, make your choice about a good virus program first and stick to it...and install only one, otherwise you are just asking for problems.

To remove Zone alarm completely you have to start you computer in 'Safe Mode' and then go to Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel section to proceed and then reboot.

Thanks,
