I have a couple of years old Compag CQ50 laptop. My wife bought it for me while I was in Iraq.
Somehow, I have gotten some viruses on it.
Now comes the weirdness:
Sometimes the "Antivirus Vista" virus comes up, wreaking havoc. Sometimes it does not. Something is erasing my restore points.
Something is preventing me from loading antivirus software, yet cannot be found by MalWare Bytes.
I had a friend work with it for nearly six hours, and while he got most of the bugs off, I was unable to use my synaptics touchpad mouse, or an external mouse. I want to wipe the thing and load Windows 7, but cannot do that until this semester is over, since I have a lot of data I cannot afford to lose on this system.
I need some help going through, and finding and killing these various viruses.
