  1. My son, when playing his online games, hit a snag.......was given the option to "F10" and did it. Since then my system has been totally messed up. I keep getting at ATD.DLL error, my defrag wont work, all the setting and fonts are changed........numerous problems. I tried using the recovery disks that I made when I got the system, but they won't read. I have a hard time getting on line, my motorola phone stuff won't work to download pics off my phone, my google earth won't work...................any help would be appreciated.

    Your son probably downloaded some spyware.

    - Try System Restore - (All programs,Accessories/System Tools/) as a short term measure.

    - Follow the Techspot spyware removal steps,HERE

    - See Using Restore Discs

    You have to go into the BIOS HERE

    and make the CD/DVD first in the boot order,

    then restart the PC, with the first restore disc in the drive.
