Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Hi, my old laptop Toshiba Satellite A100 is

\015 Hi, I have just bought a new computer and am giving my old laptop (Toshiba Satellite A100) to my 12 year old daughter, problem is, it is riddled with viruses and adware which I cannot remove. I have backed up all important files and I have the recovery disk. I just need to know if I run the recovery disk, will I then need to install all the drivers? If so how do I do this or know which ones are needed?Thanks -Sharman\015

Answers :

When your ready to reinstall from your recovery disk,
\015\012Put the disk in the drive and shut down and restart
\015\012on start up your will have to press the F12 key to select the Boot Menu this will instruct the computer to boot from the recovery disk
\015\012follow the prompts and the computer wizard should take care of the rest
\015\012My computer gets a reinstall every 12 months and that takes care of any dodgey viruss's or bugs that could be present,it also runs faster from the fresh install
\015\012My reinstall takes about 45 minutes for the wndows reinstall and then I have to load my fav softwares after that,
\015\012Hope this helps,MISTERDJ
I take it that the recovery disc came with the laptop in which case all the drivers will be there.

I'm more concerned that it is "riddled with viruses and adwar" which you can't remove!


Do you not use an Anti virus program?
