My friend has this netbook and has got a ton of Virus on and it won't let her online. How to I format the hard drive on this thing


I would suggest formatting the hard drive ONLY as a last resort. I would suggest installing a new copy of Web-root A/V and spy-ware AND a subscription copy of Malwarebytes Anti-mal-ware programs. You will have to load and run them in Safe mode the first time. If you run then at least once per week after that, you should have no problem. The first time you run the programs, they will clean most of the crud out. Keep running until they show no more threats.

If you still must reformat the hard drive, you will need the original CD to load the operating system and drivers for the laptop. If you don't have the original CD, You will have to load the operating system and find the drivers for the laptop from the maker of the laptop.

If you find this information helpful, Please rate it high. thanks.

My laptop works fine from time to time but then i get some line colored vertical on ym screen and the mouse freeze after i reinstall the windows its good for a few days thne start again


It sounds like you have a persistent virus, turn off your restore feature, run a full scan with a decent anti-virus software and anti-spy-ware and do this in safe mode. Then do a complete re-install of your system, if you have another hard drive handy I would opt to do that first that way it will prove there are no other issues with your laptop.

Computer is very slow websurfing, would changing the hard-drive from 100 gb to 320gb help alot with this, and if so, will I loose all my stored info?


you can check to see how much free space you have on your 100 gb drive ... just right click on the C: drive icon .. and then select "properties" .. if you have lots of space left then thats not your problem and a new 320 gb wont help .. if you see that you are running out of space (like less than 10 or 20 gb) then it will help .. you can transfer or ghost your entire drive over to the new drive if you have the proper equipment .. or if you take it somewhere to have it done .. you may have to reregister your operating system but that only takes a phone call or an internet click .. much more likely your computer is full of spy and ad-ware unless you have a good security suit that takes care of that sort of stuff ... if you dont have any anti spy-ware program then "spybot search and destroy" is a good start and its free ... some anti virus programs can really slow a computer down .. if you have a good one stick with it .. if you dont then AVAST or AVG are really good and free ... if you havent done so you can "clean up your hard drive" .. that includes getting rid of temporary file clutter and defragging the hard drive ..you should do that every couple of months or schedule it to happen at set intervals .. check how much memory you have .. most computers today should have 1gig or more memory .. if you have only 256 or 500 meg then things will run slow .. depending on what your operating system is .. XP will work ok on 500meg Vista wont .. ...both can benifit form increased memory ..

My computer has some sort of addaware or spy ware on it. I already have taken all my important stuff off the harddrive, but it wont let me delete the virus file. Does anyone know how to wipe the hard drive...


firstly install a fresh windows in your computer, after installing windows, format yout other drivers, dont open other drive, otherwise the addaware will come back in your windows. then load a good antivirurs in your system and after updating it; scan your all data of other hard drive.

Computer too low


AVG is good anti virus software which do not slow your system down and they do a free version, SuperAntispyware is also a good spyware program and again it's free.
If you google these you'll find them easy enough.

Computer problem


virus protectors are like things in ancient world now days its spyware virus scanners lost there credibility to spyware programs cause spyware is quicker faster and they hide better but not from proper proggies
you need a strong firewall program like zone alarm
and spyware programs like spywareblaster and spy bot these programs are free bee's not shareware full functioning programs
you need to upgrade service pack 2 and internet explorer 7 with built in pop up blocker

wacovia pop ups are a phishing program looking to destroy comps these are spy ware and trojans hiding ready to strike once you get the recommended programs up these spy's should disapear

SONY PCG-V505DX make it run faster


put more ram in the laptop is the most economical solution at the moment, as it is so cheap.
your laptop can have 2 gig in total
other solutions that cost nothing
  • remove all unwanted software off the hard drive.( to make room for virtual memory)
  • empty recycle bin
  • run anti spy-ware software
  • defrag the hard drive
  • set virtual memory to 2 times physical ram
  • set performance settings to "adjust for best performance",go to device manager/advanced tab to do this
  • go to start/run ,type "msconfig" go to start up tab and deselect any software not needed at boot up,
  • leave anti virus,anti spy ware,and any firewall selected.
  • when you reboot a box will open saying you have been in making changes ,put a tick in the box at top right so it does not show again.

hope this helps you
please rate my efforts if worthy
good luck
Terry
