1) I do not want to replace my Hard Disk Drive for my Laptop. 2) This message pops up everytime I turn the computer on, and I have to press F1 to continue Windows XP startup. 3) Even if I format, this message still appears. 4) I would like to remove this message because I am broke and this is annoying. Especially when the I set the computer to shut down, it fails and instead, it restarts and further weakens my computer; because I am away and didn't know that this mother******g message has been on for 5-10 mother******g hours!!!!. Thanks! Also, I reformatted my computer again, because this thing stayed for like 3 hours and everytime I start up from then and now, all I get is a blank screen. But prior to that, I knew that I had a virus that prevented me using internet explorer and disk cleanup. I removed the virus, but I still had security holes. It said that I someone could access my computer through the .net framework and through ASP.NET. Does this mean that the passwords stored in my Mozilla Firefox could be stolen? I mean like it seemed strange that it took a few days for the virus/ware to completely disable my computer.
