    Hey
    My problem is with my laptop ( Fujitsu Siemens Amilo ). I had n
    problem with Vista at all, it was working perfect untill a few week
    ago. I was online for about an hour then all of a sudden everythin
    started to go really slow then internet explorer stopped working.
    thought it was to do with my internet connection but it couldn't hav
    been because i am recieving wireless from my main computer and th
    internet is fine. I realised then that after re connecting my interne
    that i could only go on to MSN. Internet explorer and Mozilla firefo
    were not working at all. I haven't downloaded anything that could'v
    made problems either.

    Anyway, since then, vista has been slowly messing up. First, it wa
    saying i didn't shut it down properly when i did. Then i realised m
    wireless connection had been deleted and my recycle bin, paint an
    calculator got deleted. I know they're only little things, but surel
    it's not right for that to happen out of nowhere lol

    I just turned on my laptop and it said it needed to do this fix thin
    so i let it run through hoping that everything would improve, but i
    hasn't. It now takes ages to load up and now i can only go on to Saf
    Mode

    I really want to try and re install vista but i don't have the cd. I'
    wondering if there's any way at all to re-install vista without the cd
    Pleaseeee try to help me, i love my laptop lol x

    Sounds like malware. Even though you didn't download anything doesn't
    mean malware couldn't have gotten on the system. I would do a full scan
    with an Antivirus in safe mode. Avast is free and you can schedule a
    boot time scan. Try malwarebytes, Spybot SD, Superantispyware as well to
    see if the AV couldn't pick up anything.

    AV won't pick up malware at all, unless you have an edition that
    specifically includes Antimalware functions. Avast free does not.

    I have Mc Afee, windows defender and i'm sure i had something else on
    there aswell. I scanned my laptop twice a week when i had it and it
    didn't pick anything up. I did a test on there the other day on one of
    the applications and it said my laptop score is 2.5 but is healthy.
    Could there be another solution? x

    I'm sorry but "malware" is a general term used to describe mos
    malicious programs. Viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, rootkits, etc
    And yes, Avast has an antispyware module built in as well as being an A
    and rootkit detector. Avast does pick up spyware, adware, etc

    Lol. I can't download it though because i can't go on the internet. It'
    completely messed up. I'm on safe mode now.. but it's not letting m
    click on anything at all. I restarted it and it's done the same thing
    The only time the laptop is responsive now is it i press the F button
    on start up.

    Yes but i can't connect. I can't use any functions on my laptop becaus
    it's not working. I can only use the F buttons on startup to go in t
    the boot menu etc.

    Well, I would try to run Checkdisk and SFC. If that doesn't work, you'
    probably have to try a startup repair and you'd have to make a recover
    disk

    Umm no - Avast free version picks up VIRUSES ONLY which are NOT the same as
    Malware.
    AVG Free picks up Viruses NOT Malware.
    Antivir picks up Viruses, NOT Malware.

    If AV applications picked up malware there would be no need for Spybot,
    Adaware or any of the other antimalware applications, would there?

    <sigh> do NOT piggyback on a thread that is discussing a COMPLETELY
    different problem.
    Your Vendor has to provide you with a method of returning your machine to
    Factory Gate specifications. read the manual that came with it in order to
    find out how to do this.
    And please be aware that the "forum" you are posting in leaches off the MS
    Usenet Newsgroups, so please follow Usenet custom, reply to the thread,
    QUOTE the post you are replying to and do not change the subject line.
    Thank you.

    I can't turn it on at all now. It gives me the safe mode options but i
    i press "safe mode with networking" or even just standard safe mode, i
    says "preparing for safe mode" for about 10 minutes then turns off.

    You say you don't have a vista DVD.
    In that case, there MUST be a Recovery Partition.

    Contact the computer manufacturer re the method for recovery; it varies from
    maker to maker. It normally can be a particular F Key, or combination.

    Often, it will come up as an option after tapping F8 at startup(Repair,
    etc); but that option is now out for you.

    You can also get a Repair disk from the above site; it is NOT complete vista
    reinstall disk.

    Taken from the Fujitsu support site, picking a random Amilo model since you
    didn't name yours, this is what they say to restore the computer using its
    recovery partition:

    Solution:

    1.. During PC start press F8 to open Advanced Options.
    2.. Select Repair your Computer.
    3.. Select keyboard layout.
    4.. Select User name and Password. If Administrator account is disabled
    use another account.
    5.. Select in System Recovery Options the Fujitsu Siemens Computers
    Recovery
    6.. Restore Factory Default Settings to restore the system image.
    7.. Select the source From hard disk (recommended).
    8.. Last confirmation to restore the image.
    The factory default settings are restored on drive C:.
    The data in partition D: keep in an existing state.
