Windows 7: Uninstalling Windows 7 with viruses

Uninstalling Windows 7 with viruses


I don't care for any files on my CPU (I actually do but I could care less anymore-I just want my damn CPU to work again). I have tried uninstalling windows using my back up disc and the original disc but I keep getting different error messages. I have tried locating the virus that is causing this but am unsuccessful.

Is there a way I can just delete windows 7 and reinstall from scratch. My computer won't let me do anything and it keeps getting worse.

Any help is appreciated.

Put your recovery disk in, press (F8 / F11 / F12) at startup, whichever one gives you the popup menu. I mean right after you switch it on.

There isnt much point loading windows up and then trying to use the recovery disk.

(When you say CPU I guess you mean the whole system)

Lets see if we could remove the viruses before we reinstall Windows .

Run Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

64-Bit Version OS Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 <===== Download Link

Drag the FRST64.exe from the Downloads folder to your Desktop

Right click on FRST64.exe and choose

When the tool opens click Yes on the disclaimer window .

Press Scan button.

FRST will let you know when the scan is complete and has written the FRST.txt to file

Note   Note
The first time Farbar Recovery Scan Tool is run, it makes also another log Addition.txt

Please upload both logs in your reply.(FRST.txt and Addition.txt)

FRST.txt and Addition.txt will be on the Desktop

Upload a File
Click on the Go Advanced button under the Message box . Scroll down to Additional Options then click on Manage Attachments in the Attach Files sections . Click the Browse button locate the file then click on the Open button . In the Upload File from your Computer section click on the Upload button . Wait until it finishes uploading then close the window . Then click Submit Reply .
