hello all, I have a packard bell easynote and i think i may have picked up a virus and i'm trying to reformat using a master dvd which i was prompted to make when i first used the laptop, problem is i keep getting error message: computer incorrectly configured would anyone know what this means ?
the guy on p/b site said i have to re-enable the hidden sectors of the drive, he posted a link on how to do it, cant get it going though, as for the virus it is a trojan, and it seems to re-emerge every start up, any suggestions welcome though ?
It may help to switch off windows restore before disinfecting the virus with a virus scanner as sometimes a virus scanner can't clean a system properly with it enabled. I had a problem a while back which drove me crazy, re-appearing after re-starts, until I discovered the infected file was listed as in the restore file.
I don't know if this will help at all, I just thought I'd mention it.
