Laptop Won't Power On

Post by Waves on Wed 05 Nov 2014, 2:18 pm

Superdave had given me input on how he implicitly AdwCleaner. I went through Malwarebytes. No infected files were found. Then when I followed Superdave's instructions on downloading the Junkware Removal Tool from Cnet, I ignored the suspicious file warning and downloaded it anyway. That was probably my first mistake.

This morning I couldn't get internet access on my laptop. It might have shown the Google page but I couldn't input any further data or a corrupted Yahoo page would appear. I am now using my dinosaur PC clone which is so slow and has two stars and four Internet Explorer icons running along the top of this page! AT&T's coming to install Uverse tomorrow so they could give me feedback on the aforementioned then. I have DSL right now. Well, that's besides the point right now.

I used the System Restore in the the Start button on the laptop. That might have corrupted the operating system. Now the laptop won't power on. The Acer laptop's nearly 4 years old with Windows 7. Should I invest the $70 for a diagnostics or just buy a new laptop?

Thank you!

Hello waves, you should post back in your original thread and inform Superdave of this new issue. 

Having two 'related' threads will only serve to confuse any advice that is offered.
