I don't even know where to begin with this post- but here goes! Im going to start where it all started.
Back on Oct. 24th, 2005 I posted in the Malware Removal forum, needing help with the Winfixer/virtualmundo thing (called something like that) my post just got read today and someone posted what to do, when I restarted in safe mode, I could not do anything, just had a black screen, so someone else on this site told me to just to do it in normal mode, so I did. Everything was going well, (but had to much confusion going on here at home) so.. while I was finishing typing in a file path I hit the enter key before I was done entering the file path and well, something happened and I lost everything. When I tried to start computer back up some about ( windows root>\system32\hal.dll) was missing or something.
So I tried to put in a recovery disk and I think I hit the restore or something. It put my computer back to the way it was from the factory? All my icons are there from all my programs, but programs are all gone.
I do have a set of HP recovery disks that I made awhile ago, but dont even know where to begin with them.
When I did put the first recovery in, I click on a folder and when it opened up it said something about unzipping it, do I have to do that with every file on the disks? and will get gave me back the things I lost, like my AVG, my pictures and so on.....?
Please let me know as soon as you can.
