  • Please HELP: after removing a virus I've lost all my personal files, and I have no restore points to use as recovery.

    I had a guest to use a program called Windows restore, it looked and behaved as if what I thought was a Trojan horse.  Then I left the guest to the top and ran rKill followed by Malwarebytes, then the computer restarted itself.  But here's the error I made.  One of the websites I've read about the virus, told to turn off Windows system restore before you run these programs.  So I did, without realizing that the practice has so deleted restore points saved in the system restore.  Only the initial programs supplied with my computer start the CPU appeared on a black desktop computer.  My photos, music, documents and other programs I download weren't there.  Empty all files in my profile in my computer.  In addition to the recovery of the system Windows if not, how can I retrieve this information.  I've used up what little knowledge troubleshooting I have.  Thank you for your suggestions.

  • M100 satellite disk restore will not work, keeps on rebooting the laptop


    I have a M100 I need to restore to out of box state. XP is running too slow and after getting some internet pop ups of facebook, the laptop is having issues.

    Now, I tried to run the program of restoration of the drive and it happens with ramdisk boot, then the f6 press to install an aditional drivers, then wait.
    The mouse cursor appears on the screen and it can be moved around, then the laptop restarts just.

    I tried this several times and with main power and with and without the battery while on the grid.

    I suspected it was a problem of hard disk or a boot sector virus, which prevents the program of restoration of the race. However, I tried a new hard drive and it still does the same thing.
    I changed the RAM and still does not. About a year or two ago I had to restore the laptop as the HARD drive died and I replaced it with another hard drive on a different Toshiba laptop and it worked fine.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need this laptop for school

    Thank you


    Sorry, but one thing in this story is strange. Why load additional driver?

    If you want to have out of the box to install OS, you must use the Toshiba CD/DVD facilities sent. Using this disk, you do not need to load anything, just start the recovery procedure, let it run and when you're done just restart your laptop. That all s that you do.

    So, if you have this original Toshiba drive please do as follow:
    Start your laptop and press F12 repeatedly
    When the boot menu appears recovery disc into the optical disc drive
    In the list, choose the CD/DVD device and press ENTER
    Follow the menu on the screen

  • My XP desktop seems to have thrown my 'system tools' function and I want to use the disk cleanup and defragmentation... How to get back the system tools?

    My computer is as I said above a desk with the microsoft XP program and is a little less than five years.  It has been slow and it dawned on me that I hadn't used the disk cleanup or some defrag for a while, but I clicked on start, all programs, accessories, System Tools was is no longer.  I have not been able to access the disk cleanup or defragment option and hope that out there, can someone advise me how to get this feature.

  • When you use disk cleanup, drive D C and recovery should be included?

    When you use disk cleanup should you clean disk (C) operating system, and the recovery disc D. Then on drive c must only choose th files that are already enabled as the downloaded programs files and temp. Internet files or you need to clean more options?

    Do NOT run the cleaning or do anything at all on the recovery D: drive.   Do not add files, defragment, compress, chkdsk, or something else.  Let completely alone.

    Insofar as what to remove NSB C:\ drive, this decision is entirely yours.  You can add or remove options as you seem, and that you feel able to make - do as much as you can in these settings.  More your cleaning, the more you'll be available and, in some cases, it can even run your computer to start, and stop faster.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • I have reset firefox and lost all bookmarks. No backups.

    First of all I discovered I could no longer type a web address directly into the address bar and access a site. Then, on the advice of online support, I reset Firefox, and the result was that I lost all my favorites. I tried backup to a recovery point, but it was not good. Help!

    For best results, I wouldn't use Windows System Restore feature. This can lead to mixed files that do not work well together...

    You're low space by chance? Reset feature duplicates a lot of data and sometimes it does not end when the disk space.

    Could you search for your old settings folder in the following two locations:

    • Windows desktop: the folder named "old data of Firefox.
    • Firefox profiles folder: copy the following text and paste it into the search box on the start menu, and then press ENTER:


      You will certainly find your current (incomplete) record, but there is also an older file (old modified sense just before your reset).

    If you find one of them, recover bookmarks, you can restore a backup by following the steps described in this article: restore bookmarks from a backup or move them to another computer. At the step where you choose file, point you Firefox in this profile folder everywhere where you found it, and then in the folder bookmarkbackups inside.

    You can also save other settings of the folder. This article can help, or for more specific help post-return: recovery of data from an old profile.

    A bit of luck so far?
