    I got a serious virus the other day and know my computer won't boot up. I've reinstalled windows before but this time when I put the disk in it tells me "strike f1 to reboot, f2 for setup" I have changed the boot sequence to the cd rom first and have changed the floppy to uninstalled since I don't have one and I still am getting the same error, I have even gone so far as to remove and put back in the BIOS battery. Help would be very much appreciated. I am smart but not a techie guy by any means so a detailed explaination anytime you use techie words would help, thanks!

    I was trying to defrag my hard drive in my computer but it wouldn’t do it, it kept coming with “ some files can’t defragged “ I’m ruining XP Home on my SONY VAIO I ask question on the web and found a defragmenter from PirForm its free but they do take donation and it did the job an wallah!. A word of advice keep up on your maintenance. Good Luck

    "go to Belarc Advisor download it and install and it will tell you anything on your system, you mite want you create a new folder for you downloads to go into, call it my downloads and you can put a short cut on the desktop and when your downloads come in put them in it."
