My aunt is giving me her laptop PC because she is going on a spiritual journey
and at the convent they will not allow her her own PC.

this computer has had problems, apparently when new it somehow got a "virus" or the OS was just bad,
so a computer expert freind of hers set up a new user account to bypass the bad one and it worked.

the computer a few years later got infected by "firesearch" adware, I deleted it with malwarebytes. (MSE will not work on this comp)

The thing is I want to do a new OS install and I cannot find the original disc. Can I use a 3rd party disc? is it cheaper to
do an OS re install myself or have an expert do it? the computer will NOT go into safemode. If you try it will BSOD.

But a Windows OS CD, boot to it, format, install. Then install all drivers beginning with the chipset driver. Then install a good anti virus app. Then go to Windows Update and install all updates (except for hardware / driver updates - never get them from Windows update). Then you're good to go.

Since it's a laptop...you could simply contanct the manufacturer for the appropriate recovery disks...or invoke the recovery mechanism that's probably built-in.

With a history of malware...I'd go for obtaining the appropriate recovery disks.

I need this laptop to DJ and do schoolwork on.

They might still have them.

Can you give us the model number of the system & we might be able to find a link for you.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hi -
Please note that the correct designation for your notebook / small laptop is HP - Compaq Presario 2700 Series,

No internet acess, no WEP key. hasnt had a win update seince 2007

Are you connected to internet in any way, (wireless or direct wired/ethernet) or can you connect directly via a router / modem ?
If you look in Control Panel do you find any connections listed under Network Connections ?

Thank You -

Did you do this on your own or did BC's staff help? If you haven't done so already, you might want to let the BC Malware specialists work with you to make sure your system is clean.

I did this on my own. I will be welcome to allow BC's staff to help me clean the computer.
