Hello, After deleting JMAKVEE thread by hand I started a full scan with the virus scanner. This took a while so I went to bed. This morning the pc was continuosly, after telling me AUTOCHK count be found and skipping the test, rebooting. - The safe modus <F8> couldn't help me out the reboot. - The factory helpdsik of my PC told the required directory wasn't available. - The install disk makes it possible to get a promt. Scanning previous threads on this subject learned me to carry out a CHKDSK /P and /R. Probely I had to do something with PTEDIT, which a can't find. As well as I need an administrator password. My normal password isn't accepted and the "<tab> enter" doesn't work either. Further more the deletion of the Hotfix. I don't know how it has to be done since I have only a prompt available. Can any body help me out without having te reinstall Windows and loosing my documents and settings?
