i have a dell desktop optiplex which is several years old - but it does the job or rather it did do!
uo until midweek it was all fine. then all of a sudden the antivirus picked up a shedload of malware and went on an auto blocking crusade. now i hav a pc pinging every 2 mins notifying me of malware
what i would do normally as i would with my other desktop is a straightforward format, a clean sweep start again from scratch
problem is though i dont have the original restore dell cd''s as they werent supplied with the machine many years ago - if i format i may never get it up and running again - but currently with all the malware pinging away
what can i do? help?
