A virus check might not get all malware. Download Malwarebytes free and do a scan with that. Check the add-ons installed in you browsers and get rid of superfluous or strange ones. Use msconfig to check which programs are loaded at start up. Uncheck unnecessary or suspicious ones. Good luck.

This might be a dodgy stick of memory or memory slot. If you have more than 1 stick of memory, see what happens if you just use variations of just 1. Maybe try disonnecting all drives except the one you boot from. And, not sure exactly what you mean by works once and how far it gets after removing the CMOS battery. But does it get far enough to boot from a cd? If it does, try getting hold of a AVG rescue disk this will run a pre-boot virus check which may clear the problem if you're lucky. Obviously you would have to use a friend's machine to burn the disk. Unlikely, but could be a failing powers supply. Borrow one and try it instead. Otherwise, it really sounds like a terminal motherboard issue to me. Godd luck.

That's easy. Open the side panel of the CPU. Locate the battery on the motherboard. Pull it out. Place a fresh one.

Are you expecting a folder or program called 'e machines'? Many machines come with manufacturer branded bloatware, and many users uninstall this stuff to make their machines run better.

Most likely a hard drive problem. When you get the flashing cursor, it indicates a lack of an accessible Operating System. But, if the drive was good you would get a boot failure indication. I would try booting with an XP disc and look for the HDD (or try F2 when you boot) to get to the BIOS and look for the drives there.

A) Power On switch is no good

B) Power Supply is no good

Do you wish to perform the simple test, to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or Power Supply?
If so post back in a Comment.

Also, IS it an eMachines ET1161-07 Desktop PC?
Don't want to 'rattle my lips off', if it's a different computer.

You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.
