Powered on aspire 5517 laptop, message saying Windows recovery so clicked yes to fix problem, then said could not be fixed, so clicked advance options and set to factory default, now a black screen with white writing about mac add and numbers, then says connect cable, connected Ethernet to modem, then says cant boot, to put boot disk in and hit any key? I don't have any boot disks, I have recovery disk that I tried with no resolvement, the screen says the same thing, I have tried everything, keep getting same thing. Thanks, Sandy

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go. I am sorry that you are having troubles with your computer and will try my best to help you. I know that being infected is very frustrating, but I will be here to help you through the whole process of cleaning. Removing malware can be difficult and complicated and will most likely take many steps, so please stick with me until I have declared your computer clean. I always recommend printing my instructions before following them in case you cannot keep this webpage open. Please be sure to alway follow all steps exactly as they are written and let me know what happens each time. Stop and ask if something unexpected happens or if you are unsure of how to proceed.

Please respect my volunteered time and stay with me until I declare your computer clean. If you are going to be delayed for a while, please let me know.

Please note that I am currently in training as a GeekU Senior. My posts must be reviewed by an instructor, so there may be a slight delay.

I will post some instructions for you soon.
