seem to have royally fucked my system....somehow.

dunno what's going on, but windows is being generally unresponsive and crashing, programmes crashing as soon as they try and do anything, nothing happening when ctrl+alt+del, start bar search function not working, control panel greets me with a blank window, can't system restore.
Any ideas? tried running a virus scan, but that just crashes my system.
runs fine in safe mode.



Also general IT support thread, could be useful

You shouldn't watch so much porn and click on all those pop ups mate. We all been there mate...more cum than you know what to do with and all that. Give it a good wipe.



Also F10 will be your friend...

tried a system restore but just says that no restore points have been set.

yeah, acer aspire 5734z
with a laptop its piss easy.

according to google, for acer hold alt + f10 while its booting. it should go to Acer "eRecovery", then select full system restore and itll do the rest.

yes

but it sounds like thats all you can do. If you cant even open windows and shit how do you expect to back up files?

shouldve kept backups before this mang ;)

edit: just read it works in safe mode, so yeah, backup your important shit (not the whole thing obviously), then do a factory reset.

You need to select F10 just after you've switched it on and before you reach the log in screen mate. That's if what you just mentioned doesn't work.

it wont affect the data, your files will still be there. if not, delete system32.dll (or was it kernel32.dll) then profit.

there's a common virus in microsoft's operating system, it actually roots itself inside the "WINDOWS" folder and creates a new folder called system32... if you find this folder DO NOT WORRY! It can be easily deleted... just select it and press shift + delete, click okay... restart your computer, and boom! virus all gone.
GODDAMNIT!
in order to back-up my system, i need 3 blaNK DVD's. I DON'T HAVE 3 BLANK DVD'S!
you can pick up an external hard drive pretty cheap these days...

it differs depending on the brand of laptop, seems Acer is Alt + F10, usually just boot up the laptop and immediately hold down the buttons for ages until something happens.

ahmed go out and buy 3 blank DVDs? Theyre like.. £2 :D

so if i do this erecrovery, will it delete the OS, or will it just wipe all my files? Because i don't have a windows disc.

itll reinstall windows, in the process deleting all your files.

hence "factory reset", itll look like what it did when it was new.
