Anyone ever restore your PC without the disc?

Jan 14, 2013 @ 03:28
I got some findgala virus some months ago. It redirects a lot of what I click on when on the internet browser (mostly on hypebeast actually). Ive tried deleting it with malware and while putting my computer through safe networking and it still came back slowly the next few hours.

Im running windows 7 on a dell inspiron 531s if its any help

Ive tried numerous things and downloads but to no avail

anyone think there is a torrent of some sort to access that same programming within my computer so I can restore it?

Please and thanks.

yea, shit is annoying. I fuckin hate when you depend on your pc for music production or anything else personal

what make is your pc?

usually you can contact the manufacturer to get the startup disc. Or you could build your own with win 7, but that's probably not a good idea if your registry is all corrupted.

if by make you mean the model and such I posted it up there, dell inspiron 531s. 

yea one site said you can do it through the start up screen, after some steps there should be something that says "Dell factory image restore", but when I did the steps to get there, it wasnt an option. I figured the virus eliminated that step cause they want my pc to suffer and forever live through these advertisements

oh and PS, Im using safari right now. and although I dont like it as much as chrome, the virus hasnt been affecting this browser, only chrome.

you should be able to. do you have a external hard drive or a flash drive?

If you problem is JUST with chrome, try deleting your chrome profile and cached profile on your harddrive. Look at the chrome extensions to make sure nothing nasty is going on there. I've seen CLARO search bar cause a ton of profile problems. I'd also look in your programs list in control panel and remove anything that looks suspicious.

Run malwarebytes to spot any trojans, etc. Look in MSCONFIG to see if you have anything unusual booting up at startup. 

Those are all pretty basic troubleshooting for stuff like this. If all else fails, Assuming you can get all of your personal files off the machine, I would just hit up dell for the system restore disc and reload your OS and Apps.

Ive ran malware bytes plenty of times (I even have the pro version) and the first few times it found some trojans and I deleted em. Now nothing ever shows up, but my chrome still redirects to other sites. but thanks, Im gonna try your first block of advice and delete the chrome folders

That should do it if you don't mind losing your stuff. Just back up what you want and then you're good to go.

I either reformatted or system restored my compy by clicking something in the control panel.

Complete fresh start.
Jan 15, 2013 @ 04:20
Download(torrent) the disc and make it boot through a flash drive. Reformat from that and you're straight.

Forget USB drives, just get a virtual drive(Magic Disc is what I use) and mount the iso, then run the installer.

I just found out it doesnt effect my google chrome when its on incognito mode. Any piece of info that can relate to why?


Jan 22, 2013 @ 17:06
I already you that your user profile is corrupted. Incognito does not use the default user profile, so that makes sense why you don't have problems in incognito.. 

Try this fix from google and PM me your email so I can send an invoice.

alright bruh, thx


Jan 25, 2013 @ 23:44
use your phone to google "<virus name here> virusremovalguru." it should provide you with instructions on how to remove the virus. It gets technical but it should provide you with links to get to certain places like your hkey entries
Jan 25, 2013 @ 23:57
I would say to use a USB flash drive. That's what I did and it turned out fine. Idk how you'd use magic disc if you're gonna do a clean install. The drive must be formatted I think
