It is troublesome to format the computer and then install the software. So if it is not necessary, I won't do so. At first, I will see whether I can use the backup operating system when it still works fine. If not, then I will try to kill the computer virus. If the problems are still available, then I have to format my computer and reinstall everything again. I love China

Previously, I always use system restore to curb this problem. But recently I realised that system restore cannot be completed most of the time. So I used the other method. It's to create an administrator account in your computer. Then put all your personal files to C:drive. Then use the new account and delete the old admin account. It solves most of different kinds of software problems as well besides virus.

on my part, i did learn how to manually remove malwares (malicious wares)from my PC..i had a good antivirus (ESET NOD32). to prevent such intrusions first you should browse the wed safely (safe surf)- avoid p-orn and attacking sites. second check you flash drives regularly especially when you used them on other PC's.third install a reliable antivirus you deemed helpful and will meet your needs.lastly, do not download or install programs you are not sure of..

If the case is I still can use my PC, then I'll search how to manually remove the virus, but some case that you can't even bring the system to desktop. That's the time that I will reformat my PC. I have a partition drive though, so I don't hesitate to format my system if needed ^_^ It's better to keep your important files on external hard drive or in partition ^_^

If you do not know how to reformat it, try to get some help of someone who can do it. Or scan and neutralize all the viruses. The best antivirus would be Kaspersky it free to download in the net just search.

a few months ago my computer was attacked by virus. i wasnt able to logon to windows. i have removed the hard drive to be transfered to the new computer my dad bought so that now the new computer has two hard drives. im relieved when i saw my files intact although i installed vista. this method let me recover my files because i never had to reinstall windows. but if my dad never bought the computer it would be impossible for me to access my files. i also deupgraded and moved to xp from vista since my computer always restart and do not enter the desktop. in order to not repeat the inconvenience i disabled automatic updates. so now my windows xp is running faster than the previous vista. i have also downloaded registry booster from uniblue and there were license keys that can be found in the internet for free.
