    You seem to have a lot of nasties and if the PC won't boot, you're gonna have to format and re-install.

    I would try a repair installation first. It's always best to try to save the installation. A reformat & reinstall means you lose everything and start from scratch. It's a hassle too. If the repair installation doesn't improve anything, then R&R. If it improves enough that it's at least stable, install and run the following 3 anti-spyware utilities:

    All are free.

    yeah i will go with what "almcneil " said because you dont want to loose your files at all. If it doesnt boot from cd, you can go into your bios setup and make sure the system attempts to boot from cd first before anything else. oh you can also run chskdsk /r from win xp cd as well, from recovery console..

    LET WIN LOAD FILES

    select R for recovery console, and run chskdsk /r OR

    hit enter to set up windows xp and xp will give you the option of either reformating or repairing the installation.

    IF YOU HAVE AN HP, JUST HIT f-10 on system start up

    My suggestions

    I've broken them so much I feel quite knowledgeable about this:

    1. Boot to Safe Mode
    2. Backup all your desired info, even your email data and browser favorites
    3. Perform a complete format, not a quick

    When you're up with all the computer hardware driver updates and Windows updates and after you've installed a nice anti-virus program scan the backed up data and then install that data.


    HTH - (Hope This Helps) :D
