Back to factory setting and...

Post by landksmom on 23rd April 2011, 12:20 pm

Good Morning
My computer (PC) picked up Vista Security 2011 Virus- awesome! Anyway, I removed it after much effort, I then backed up everything I wanted onto a removable drive, deleted the previously infected user account -(first switching admin settings). I then went to another previously active account and reset Vista setting to factory.
That was 10 hours ago. The computer was very full of photos, music etc. I know it needs to clear that out but it is taking a very long time to start back up. I got a "setting up windows file" bar very quickly but since all I have is the "Microsoft Corp. " screen with the moving green bar. I assumed it would take a while to load but now I'm wondering how long?
Any thoughts? Anything else I should know. I'm am doing this on a wing and a prayer so any advise would be great! Thanks very much!

It shouldn't take more than 90 minutes. I think something is wrong.

Restoring a computer can take several hours. It depends on the size of the drive and what it needs to preinstall. I've done a few times normally taking 2-3 hours.
