Computer Pros: Please Help!

Alright. My computer is infested with a ****ed up virus that has bogged down my computer. It takes over my google searches and sends me to stupid advertisements that I can't back out of. It's just all around ****ed.

I'm basically trying to reset the computer to factory settings, and it's a Dell Inspiron. From what I've found online, it's incredibly non user friendly and I need to hit F8 from the start up menu when the Dell sign comes up. Problem is when I do that, my computer pretty much just starts beeping at me like defcon 4, and won't go into the advanced menu.

I'm stuck, and mostly computer retarded. Please help. My computer hates me.

no problem.

If the mods are reading, how about you sticky my post at the top of the forum. This gets asked on average 3 times a month, and somebody makes a new thread every time.

A while back I was thinking we should have something stickied, like some basic virus troubleshooting.... but even that's probably overkill, since it's always the same damn thing.

Sticky it or have a virus forum. I actually love reading these stories of "I GOT A NASTY VIRUS AND".....

I like seeing different IT types go different routes to the possible fix.

Would you mind writing it up as a standalone thread? I don'd mind posting a sticky, but it seems like it should be fairly closely monitored with a good OP if we're doing that route. Maybe something like "the generic virus help thread" or something more clever.

Once it's up (you or anyone else), shoot me a PM and I'll give it my special tough to make it sticky.

To boot to safe mode, hit F8 when the windows splash screen comes up.

Thank you. I don't know anything about any of the actual commands. If the Rogue Killer doesn't work, that's where I'll go next.

I read that stuff, it wants you to boot safe mode w/networking...Im afraid you're going to need to rebuild.

If you don't care about what's on it and have a recovery CD, you can put the CD in and try F12 when the Dell screen comes up, then select the CD as what you want to boot from... then you can simply reinstall Windows.

Or else mikey's advice.


Or bring your laptop to the bash and I'll install a better OS and you won't have to worry about this sort of thing in the future.
