Solved How can I reset my dell laptop

Specs: 14393.187, 4 g
I have a basic laptop. I downloaded an emulator for some old school games. Noticed my internet was unsually slow and it almost seemed like I had no access. Wasn't a copyright claim either btw. I can't search anything. So I tried to reset my computer, and this "virus" won't let me. It closes all my settings whenever i go to the reset page. It does the same thing on airplane mode too. I deleted all the files I could involved with the emulator. Still it's roaming around. How do I get rid of it? Like this just is uneccessary. I'm a guy who smokes ganja so be easy on me with technicalities

✔ Best Answer
Try tapping F8 at boot up for the advanced boot options. If you get the recovery options you can try them here. If not then boot into Safe Mode and try your recovery from there. From safe mode you can go to system restore and choose a date before the install.
From Safe Mode you can run these programs to clean out your system:

JRT - junkware removal tool

JRT installs to the desktop from where run it. It opens into dos style window; follow the instructions therein. It will reboot the system as part of its process.

All of the above are free; safe to use; regularly recommended here.

Install each using the custom or manual option; do NOT use the default/automatic option Using custom/manual watch for and uncheck all the pre checked boxes - apart for the one for utility itself. That way you avoid installing all manner of stuff you neither need nor want; much of which is true PIA to eradicate.

Retain any logs generated for possible inspection/use anon... [post logs back as copy/paste]

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You supplied zero info about your laptop, zero info about the emulator, & zero info about where you downloaded it from. My guess is you got it from a "less than reliable" site. Were you smoking the ganj when you did it? lol. What anti-virus program do you have? it doesn't seem like it did it's job. Once you get the problem sorted out, you might wanna consider trying another.
