The most anoying thing that can happen

  1. First it started yesterday when I can't go on the internet, and the dos window pops open saying "dl.exe virtual driver devce error", or something like that. I tried to look it up, and it turns out to be some virus that I can't see. So I thought, screw it I'll just clean the drive. I can't format the drive for some reason, keeps saying "windows is unable to complete the format". Thing is, that's all thats coming up when I click on format. Doesn't even start. I can't even clean the damn drive. I tried it in safe mode(not sure how that would anyhow)

    Should I just take a hammer and just rip on the entire thing?

    sounds to me like it cannot complete the format because you are trying to format the drive while your using it. to format, get the windows (xp im guessing) cd pop it in and reinstall windows... there will be an option to format just read everything and your be fine. make sure u have a cd key thou
