Having problems with your HP Mini 1000 Netbook ?

How do i reformat my hp mini cos it's infected by a virus


Answers :

Armi,\015\012There is no point taking a backup as the backed up files would have the virus too and would reinfect the new installation. \015\012
\015\012What you do is reinstall the Windows from wherever you did earlier. You may be having the CDs that came with the mini. and while you are doing it you will be asked if you want to format the partition. Say YES and the partition would be formatted. If you want to format the whole HDD then you should delete the partition and create new partitions as per your requirements, if possible. And after you have installed Windows, you must install the anti virus. If you do not have any then download free AVG Free version from www.download.com It takes about half an hour to install. And then you can start surfing and doing other work on it. Unless you ar eusing it as a server, in which case a good anti virus that can handle networks as well should be installed (not free).
