\015 How to do a master detsruct on my laptop\015

Answers :

By "master destruct" I assume you mean you want to restore your computer's original software. This may be done different ways depending on the make and model of computer.

Some computers come with recovery CD or DVD media, but this is not common today. Many brands have an application you can run when you first start using the computer that lets you burn a recovery disc set for later use. If you have the discs, the process is simple: boot the computer from the disc (or first disc) and the rest is automatic.

Another common system uses a recovery partition on the hard drive. You start the recovery by pressing the appropriate function key when the computer starts up. On computers that use this scheme, message telling you which key to press comes up when the computer starts.

If you don't have any other way, you can try installing Windows using a regular Windows CD (you can usually borrow one from someone). This doesn't always work, though. (I'm not going to go into all the pitfalls of this method here.)

But why do you want to restore your computer? It isn't always necessary, and you'll lose everything in the process. (You HAVE backed up your personal data, haven't you?) Try removing the bad software first.

One of the handiest tools is a program called Anti-Malware from Malwarebytes. Get it here. Download the free version which works just fine. Install it and start it, let it update if it asks, then do a complete scan. It may take a while, but it's very effective. When it completes, let it correct the problems it finds. Most of the time this is all your computer needs. I use this program frequently when fixing computers with malware problems.

Another good malware killer is SuperAntiSpyware. Find it here. Same as before: install, update, scan. It's also free.

Once your computer is free of malware, make sure to install anti-virus/anti-malware software and keep it updated. This will help to keep the bad guys out. Avast, AVG and Avira all have free versions which provide adequate protection for most users.

Hope this helps you. Thanks for using Fixya!
Most of the virus programs run on stealth mode and run along with some application injecting its threads into the Application threads stacked in process queue. If the antivirus program fails to remove or quarantine, this could be either due to non detection of virus code, or due to inefficient coding in the virus program to seize the operation of the Virus program and seize its operations.

\015\012In such a case it would be wise to create a onetime bootup disk with Anti-Virus program. Before the OS starts, Always perform an antivirus scan and reboot a clean OS. Reason being that when Windows OS loads the Kernal takes control of all Key operations and we wouldnot have the right privilege or access to remove the virus program. So we boot from a boot disk and run this antivirus program to remove any infected file or code from the system to have a clean OS.
