I have the home search assistant virus. I have found the hopeful solution on this site and will try it when i get home (im at work). I have always just restored my computer if i have serious problems becuase i dont really have much on it anyway.
(it is a compaq computer)

I need to restore my computer now becuase i am giving it to my sister and would like to clean it up for her. However when i got to restore the computer it says error on page. I am also unable to restore it from the restore disks that came with it. (i dont know why but when i put in the restore disk it says put disk 1 in the cd drive and it already is, so...........)

Could this be because of the Home assistsant virus? is that keeping me from restoring?

Any suggestions on how to restore this thing? I would rather restore it than remove the virus because i am going to restore it after i remove the virus anyway. But maybe i have to remove the virus first?

what do you think/suggest?
Thanks
