Reinstall Dell devices

Hi,

I've recently been infected by a virus that has deleted all my programmes (But none antimalware and McAfee had been able to detect it yet...)

I lost a lot of datas, including all Dell devices and other such as Accelerometer P11, Dell Datasafe (local and online), Dell Stage, Dell Webcame central, etc.

When I try to uninstall them (They still are in the control panel), a message tell me there are source files missing.

Most have even lost shorcut direction but the few that didn't tell me that 'the program stop running' when i try to start them

Any kind of help would be very welcome 🙂

(I'm on XPS 17, still under warranty)

Thank you !

Re: Reinstall Dell devices

The installers can be obtained in My Dell Downloads

However I would recommend backing up your computer and either restoring to the factory settings or performing a clean install of windows 7 as it seems the infection has done alot of damage to your system and it may perform less well then it did originally (even if the infection is removed).

Re: Reinstall Dell devices

Okay thank you for the fast response and the tutorial for My Dell Downloads, I tried it a few times but never worked...

Do you know if I can copy the programs shat still are on my C: and paste them after having restored the factory settings ?

Re: Reinstall Dell devices

You need to reinstall all programs again, they can't simply be copied from the Folder.

You will need the instalelrs for the programs you have installed.
