Question about Panasonic PC Laptops

System crashed I have a tough book cf-48 that got infected with the anti-virus 2009 virus. While trying to get it out, it crashed the whole system. I wont boot up or recognize the hard drive. The only place I can get to is the Bios set up screen. Maybe you guys can help me out. Thanks Tommy

    Thanks for the reply. I have found a replacement hard drive at a reasonable price. I don't have the recovery disk. What is my best option to getting everything reinstalled back into system?



    Thanks Tommy

    Thanks. XP Pro is what was on there in the first place.I have a copy for my desk top I think I can use. It is for a Dell though. I don't it should make a difference. Thanks for the help.

If it doesn't recognize the hard drive, then the virus did it's job, and you will need a new hard drive. Many of these newer viruses are designed to inflict hardware damage through the use of the installed software, unlike the older viruses, that were designed to damage the software, rendering the computer useless, but no hardware damage. They used to be just annoyances, but now days they are malicious. I don't really understand why these kids have to write these viruses with the malicious intent they have. The internet crimes unit of the FBI have really been cracking down lately. In the future, keep on top of you antivirus with frequent scans, and be prepared to get rid of the virus at the first sign. If you leave it too long it will damage hardware, and now days too long isn't very long at all.

    You will need an operating system disc. I use, and prefer XP Pro. After installing the operating system, then you will need to go to Panasonic's support site and download any drivers needed. You can find the needed drivers in the device manager.

Antivirus wont turn on in settings


Is your Anti Virus Up-To-Date? Will it update? Depending on the Brand of software(you didn't post), Anti Virus, that's installed. The windows Security Center may not recognize it. Open Security Center and change Notification of Anti Virus. First make sure it hasn't been compromised, if you are infected the infected file will shut down your Anti Virus. Use this freeware program to verify a clean system , MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Depending on the size of your HDD, it may take hours. Post results and your Anti Virus Software Manufacturer.

Shut down


Possible corrupt operating system. The cause of corrupt operating system is Windows file corrupted or virus infected Windows.

Solution corrupt Windows files:
1. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Restore (restore to the date when the OS is still normal)
2. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Image Recovery (restore using a backup system that you created)

Solution files corrupted due to virus infected windows
Update anti-virus and virus scan (if the virus is detected, the primary action = repair, secondary action = quarantine). Then repair the operating system with System Restore or System Recovery Options.
Note:
If the operating system infected with virus (virus infected not long ago), the best solution is to use System Restore. Restore to a date when the windows are still normal.

Whenever I connect any removable drive automatically 4 shortcuts got created of control panel.


You have a virus on your PC. Unfortunately, once you have this virus, it usually does not help updating your anti virus and running a scan since the virus is running in the memory of the PC and every infected file the anti virus removes - the virus just puts back again. Try one of two things to remove the virus:

1] First update your anti virus (if you dont have an anti virus, download the free AVG Antivirus and install that and then update it. Click here to go to AVG's website. Once installed - Boot your pc into SAFE MODE. This is VERY important otherwise the virus will load into memory and it wont help running the anti virus to clean the system as the memory resident virus will just replace any infected file that is removed by the scan. To boot your PC into safe mode: Read this article: Click here.

Once you are in safe mode - Open the Anti-virus console and do a complete system scan.

2] Remove the infected hard drive from your PC and install it as a secondary drive in a clean, VIRUS PROTECTED PC!!! ... i.e .. any pc that has the latest anti-virus system installed and is up to date!. Once you have installed the infected drive in the protected PC as a secondary drive, run a scan on the infected drive and remove the virus.

Once you have removed the virus, also scan ANY USB devices on that PC, including any Cameras, cellphones, photo frames, etc that you might have plugged into the infected PC.

Good luck

The pc keeps switching itself off


Computer Switching off can be many problem.

Method 1 : Overheating of the system 

System automatically shutdown or restart by itself when it's overheated due to Dust or dirt contamination in order to prevent hardware burn out.

Open your Notebook which is little tough to explain as it is different for all models.
and get it clean with an Air Blower mainly near the Processor area,check the CPU cooling fan is working or not.Get it clean too.

Check now if the system is working fine.

Method 2 : Malware, Trojan, Virus infection
Malware, Trojan, Virus infection can caused a system to repeatedly restart or shutdown as they infect svchost.exe or explorer.exe.

Scanning the system with a good antivirus like Norton,Kaspersky internet security 2010 or A-squared Anti-Malware or Avast Antivirus with their lastest updates install can solve the problem.

I perfer you check out the method 1 first.

34 viruses


You must have got them in wholesale? Do you not use any anti virus program? Now, whatever you do you will not be able to remove all of them as if you download any antivirus program, even that will get infected and will cause auto infection.
What you can do is to attach this laptop to a network and then access it with the networks antivirus system and clean up your laptop. Tough but only solution. Then you must install an anti virus package. If you cant afford to buy one then go to www.download.com and download AVG, the No 1, free, antivirus program.
If you cant do it on the network then, I am sorry to say, you will have to reinstall Windows as new, formatting the hard disk.

VIRUS INFECTION , YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED


this is what sounds like a trojan or for of spyware, probably disguised as a screen saver. If you have no anti virus installed download this programme for free http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#avg-anti-virus-free If you have no anti spyware programme download this for free. http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Edition/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5 on the laptop press Ctrl, Alt & delete or right click on task bar to get to the task manager and on the processes tab look for the scrensaver.exe or similair that is running, click on it and press end process. this should allow you to work with windows Install the programmes, then go to system restore tab in my computer>right click>properties>system restore tab and click 'turn off system restore'(this will stop any virus or spyware backups reinstalling). Run both the programmes and remove any spyware or virus. If it still appears you may have to uninstall it safe mode, which is press F8 key on start up and select 'start windows in safe mode' and run the antivirus and spyware programmes again.
