    Default Time Traveller Laptop Computer

    Hi all,
    I've been given a Laptop manufactured by the now 'defunct' UK manufacturer Time Computers.
    I understand is is called a 'Time Traveller' running WinXP
    It has an Athlon 1600 Mhz CPU
    256 MB of RAM and a 30GB Hard Drive.
    The person who gave it to me advises that it it is running very erratically.
    My question is, can the computer be taken back to factory settings to eliminate any viruses or malware which may have been introduced?
    Unfortunately, the previous owner does not have a boot disk for this machine.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Boot disks are easy to come up with, it is operating system (XP) disk that will cost you about $100.00 USD. Plus you will need all the drivers.

    We can try cleaning it up for you. Go here and follow all the directions:

    Seeing as Time's time ran out ask around for a copy of the recovery disk. I am sure there are plenty of ex timers with them.
