    Solved [solved]Need Help!!!

    Post by Marijane on Wed 27 Jan 2010, 12:03 am

    Alright, I am pretty sure that my computer is done for.. but I was wondering if any of you have any ideas what to do..

    Last week I kept getting a message that my DCOM was terminating unexpectedly.. well I finally got that fixed.. but now.. I can't download anything.. I cant do anything but simply get on the internet.. my settings keep changing.. I did have a virus.. but my mom got rid of that.. and this laptop is an old one.. and not very good anyway.. I got it for free so I can't complain too much. If any of you have any ideas as to how try and fix this problem that would be great, if not.. that's cool too.. I am already looking for a new laptop. So if you have a website where I could find a cheap, but still decent laptop.. that could help me also. Thanks!!

    Have you tried wiping your harddrive clean? Doing a reformat solves a lot of issues, it gets rid of everything you have on your harddrive though so if you have pics/music/etc you will want to put them on another computer or a Data CD for the time being. You can find instructions on how to reformat on line and you will need your system disk or something to load windows up to your laptop. Other than that I would say just opt to get a new laptop and cheap laptops you can get from Dell most likely, at least cheap with a decent service plan.

    I agree with Watari, you could always wipe your hard drive, cause that would get rid of it... And maybe you do still have the virus it's just not coming up on your scan... They can get pretty tricky. And it depends on what kind of use of laptop your going to want, because most laptops aren't cheap, I mean, if you want a good one. I mean, because what your going to be doing on your laptop depends on what kind of laptop you get and what brand to get it at. And also what you want to look at when your getting one is the processor, battery life, ram memory, hard drive memory, screen size, and all that good stuff. You also might want to stay away from unknown sites and laptops that were sent back and being resold, like if it's on like the Dell website or something like that, then that's fine, but like Ebay, they could have done something to the laptop first, you never know... Hope that helps!

    I would boot in safe mode and run a program called malware bytes that will take care of any malware you might have, if that does not work I would get the restore cd and that will most likely solve the issue .
