Hi, I got a worm on my Dell insperon, so I went to one of the self help forums, sorry don't remember which one, but some one else had the same problem. So I followed the instructions someone posted for them. I used a Malware removal tool in quick scan, like the instructions said and it helped a lot. So I did a complete hardware scan, which came up with more "little monsters" and I clicked the remove button, which said I needed to reboot. So I did a reboot, but now I only get a black screen with a blinking underscore line in the top left corner. I have try'd removing the battery for a while, no change. I even try'd putting in my startup disc on a reboot, and I do see windows starting but it goes back to a black screen. Any ideas of what to do now? I have a lot of info on there I'd like to recover if possible. I have thought about just bying a new hard drive, but have also heard, some of these programs hide in the Ram mem.
