Yes Factory Reset is what I was thinking of. Sorry for the confusion. I have an HP dv5-1002nr.
The problem is that as of about 5 days ago, my antivirus won't start up and provide protection. It says my protection is disabled and I have to restart to regain protection, but doing so doesn't fix the problem. I'm paranoid and thinking there might be some infection on here that's preventing it from starting up and I just wanted to know how to perform a Factory Reset if the problem persists and I can't figure out how to fix it.Edit:
I just got off the phone with my antivirus provider and they said they'd send me an email with a hot fix for my problem (something with the registry), so I'll try that out and see if it works.Edit #2:
I uninstalled and reinstalled Trend Micro Titanium and that seems to have solved the problem with it.
