How can i reformat my asus eeepc 1000h notebook without using external cd and cant delete all my files?

Hello there. A reformat basically means to erase everything and restore it to a point where it was new.

Now if you still want to reformat, Number 1, you will need the DVD to install the Windows 7 Operating system as well as all your files will disappear. Another thing you may do would be to make a complete back up and then the reformat.

I RECOMMEND the following:

1. If your pc is running slow, download this utility and run its features
http://www.iobit.com/toolbox.html
2. Next you should do a complete PC virus and Spyware scan.
Free Anti Virus:http://free.avg.com/ca-en/download-free-antivirus
Free Anti Malware:http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

If you follow these tips, your laptop would increase its performance drastically so you would not need to reformat. ENJOY

Have virus

Get a good anti-virus application (I recommend the excellent and free AntiVir) and run a full system check. Remember to update the antivirus application with the latest virus definitions.
Also worth installing an anti malware application (I recommend Anti-Malware) and running a full system check as well.

Can't download anything. New Toshiba Satellite

I suggest you power off the laptop and restert in safe mode. As soon as you power up keep tapping the F8 key - this will bring you to a screen that asks for a strart up mode - choose Safe Mode With Networking.

You will have a screen in low resolution (large icons etc.).

From here you should be able to download an anti virus program such as AVG or Malwarebytes. Do this and update the virus recognition files, then run the scan.

Sony vaio vgn s460 - severely virus infected. Wouldnt let any scans be run. Tried a few methods on the internet (bootable rescue,spybot, avg free scan, etc). Windows gets loaded but a downloaded program...

See if you can boot in Safe mode. If yes, then once up in safe mode uninstall all existing anti virus software's that you have installed. Then download Microsoft Security Essentials. But hope you are using a licensed OS. Download, install, update and then restart. Then do a full scan. This should solve your virus issues

Runs very slow,has been repaired twice for viruses

Have you tried a Disk Cleanup? This can often cause computers to run slowly. Look under Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

Fake alerts and trojans

Firstly,

AVG has a habit of CONSTANTLY picking up these random and mostly annoying "Harmful" Viruses.

Reinstalling AVG helped me and it should help you too (Y) :).



Hope I helped
