Back up any files you wish to save.

Reboot the box, on the start-up get into BIOS and make sure CD drive is listed under bootable drives. Set the boot order to CD first, then to HD.

Do a fresh install, do not choose to "Repair" Windows.

Install AntiVirus right away and patch Windows.

Usually tapping F2, F10 or DEL during boot will load the bios (BIOS = "System Setup" sometimes too)

start frantically hitting F2, F8, F10 and Del right after you power on your machine.

Hit Esc, F1, F2, F10, F12, and Delete keys while booting.

Fixed.


A PG-13 rating is a sterner warning by the Rating Board to parents to determine whether their children under age 13 should view the motion picture, as some material might not be suited for them. A PG-13 motion picture may go beyond the PG rating in theme, violence, nudity, sensuality, language, adult activities or other elements, but does not reach the restricted R category. The theme of the motion picture by itself will not result in a rating greater than PG-13, although depictions of activities related to a mature theme may result in a restricted rating for the motion picture. Any drug use will initially require at least a PG-13 rating. More than brief nudity will require at least a PG-13 rating, but such nudity in a PG-13 rated motion picture generally will not be sexually oriented. There may be depictions of violence in a PG-13 movie, but generally not both realistic and extreme or persistent violence. A motion picture’s single use of one of the harsher sexually-derived words, though only as an expletive, initially requires at least a PG-13 rating. More than one such expletive requires an R rating, as must even one of those words used in a sexual context. The Rating Board nevertheless may rate such a motion picture PG-13 if, based on a special vote by a two-thirds majority, the Raters feel that most American parents would believe that a PG-13 rating is appropriate because of the context or manner in which the words are used or because the use of those words in the motion picture is inconspicuous.


An R-rated motion picture, in the view of the Rating Board, contains some adult material. An R-rated motion picture may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements, so that parents are counseled to take this rating very seriously. Children under 17 are not allowed to attend R-rated motion pictures unaccompanied by a parent or adult guardian. Parents are strongly urged to find out more about R-rated motion pictures in determining their suitability for their children. Generally, it is not appropriate for parents to bring their young children with them to R-rated motion pictures.

When you first power on the computer, watch your screen, somewhere on the first screen, it will show you what to push to get into the bios. If you don't know what the bios is, I would take it to Reno Computer Repair and have him fix it up for you. I had to blow up windows and reinstall a few months ago, close to a year ago now. That program is nasty. No matter what I did, I couldn't completely get rid of that dang program.

Go here (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download), download the live CD, bun it to a cd, reboot the machine, find all the stuff you want to keep, burn it to a disc or move it to another hard drive, then install Ubuntu Linux and tell Bill Gates to go #&%^ himself! :pissed:

Or go to a competent repair shop, get it fixed and then stay away from the porn sites. :nono:

This free tool has resolved about 70% of the xp antivirus 2008-2009 issues we've seen- definately dont nuke your OS before trying it-- its a 10 minute scan and 1 minute clean- if it persists after this we use webroot's spysweeper pro and super antispyware pro- both the paid versions, it that doesn't get it that's when I nuke it with a format
