We recently had some issues with spyware on our system. That since has been resolved but in the midst of figuring that out, we are no longer able to customize our backgrounds for our desktop. I can't use any of the available backgrounds nor can I set a picture as my background. I am sure we messed up a setting or something, but have been unable to locate what went wrong. Your guidance would be greatly appreciated.
What PC? WHAT OS?>
Compaq CV 7500 is monitor not a PC. so what PC?
Compaq CQnn,nnnnn? full models number MATTER.
it was infected, and still is!, its ONLY LESS infected or it virus is
partially dormant. or this is the collateral damage, ...
is this unstated PC running the virus magnet XP????
this pC is old, why not retire it?
it has little to no value, so buying the install disks is not cheap.
nor the labor to put humpty back together , cheap or easy.
on any modern PC, say 10 years or newer (get one and win)
the PC will restore with the magic F11 key. to day1 conditions.
(HDD still good sure)
I am an expert on cleaning PC, for high end users with data that
is critical. we never do this on home PCs, (im retired)
we reload the OS.
if you have DATA, (means important personal CONTENT)
we back that up next. not easy infected, we move the HDD to
a non infected PC then back it up
then put the HDD back in the unstated PC and then using HP
disks we reinstall the os from scratch (fresh load)
the PC may have media kit the HP sells buy the disks from them.?
ask HP for the kit.
if your COmpaq is say one of the last made
the F11 key may still work if not slammed.
slammed is when you wipe out HP software using non HP disks.
say from MS. direct.
Just wondering if you have loaded drivers for the F20, There may be a conflict with that monitor until you install the proper software. Another thing is to go into your display setting and make sure that the correct display device is selected. You can change what monitor you want for your default and doing so will cause the correction on you external monitor as long as the software is installed and updated, If your monitor tells you that your resolution should be at 1680x1050 You should see 1920x 1340 in your display properties all the way down to 640x480 I don't no if that will get you up and running, I know that the higher the resolution the smaller the picture on your screen, lower res. will make things bigger on your screen. Hope that helps you somewhat. Thanks take care and I hope it works for you.
SOURCE: many of the programme is
It can be difficuld to get the programs up an running again as you dont know what to look for.
The best solution is to re-install the programs which are not running.
You could also use the System Restore function but as I dont know which type of operating system you are using it is difficuld to guide you.
If XP - Open All Programs - Acessories - System Tools System Recovery.
Here it is possible to bring the PC back to a state where all programs was running normally.
Remark: It might be your Registry Booster program which has done the damage.
The register Booster program might contain a recovery procedure which might be able to bring it back.
Some of the Register Booster programs found on the Net can do a lot of damage to your PC if you just use the repair function without knowing exactly what will happen.
