Before you go that step - which will erase "all" your personal files etc. in the process... Have you first saved/copied "all" your personal files ("stuff" you wouldn't wish to lose) off the hard drive completely? Typically to DVD but also to an external hard drive too if possible. Having copied etc. then check the copies can be accessed OK from at least one other working computer.

Then perhaps run the disk clean routine; two tutorials here::

After-which run in this order:

malwarebytes (free version)

Let it run and fix/clean out anything it finds...

Adwcleaner

Similarly with adwcleaner - let it run and do what it can...

Junkware Removal tool (JRT)

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

JRT will place itself on the desktop - from where you run it. It will open into a dos style window - where you can read its instructions and follow accordingly.

Then see how things are?

But "first" safeguard all your personal files - to DVD at least.

This is the Packard Bel support area for your model/serial number.

http://www.packardbell.co.uk/pb/en/...

You can download the full manual there (Documents tab); and page 47 is all about the factory reset/recovery process.

Suggest you do the clean out etc. as above; then have a read of the manual and consider whether or not to go the factory reset route...

I note they encourage the user to make their own set of recovery disks... which of course you did do? If not then they do include using the Recovery Management facility on the hard drive.

When you do get the system working again as you'd like it to be, do make your own set of recovery disks - as per Packard Bell's advice. Label them and keep safe (remembering where you put them too...)
