How to detect viruses easily?

1- Go to start-run-command
2- Write cd.. (notice the tow dots) and press enterwrite cd.. (again) and press enter
3- Write (cd windows) and press enter
4- Write (cd system32) and press enter
5- Write (setup) and enterIf you get that message

(Please switch to the control panel to install components and systems composition)
Then that means your pc is clean.
The idea here is the (setup) file which is located within(system32) is shut down when your pc
infected and open when your pc isnot infected because mostviruses shut down all system.exe extensions. I’ve tried it and it worked!

how to install windows xp sp2 by using dr-dos


1. Check your BIOS to be sure your computer will boot from a CD. Enter the BIOS setup by pressing the "Delete" or F2 or "F12" key, or as directed at the startup screen, immediately after booting. Set the first boot device to "CDROM" or "DVDROM" instead of "hard drive" if it isn't already.

2. MS-DOS command prompt

Insert the Windows XP installation CD into your CD or DVD drive and restart the computer. When prompted, choose to start from the MS-DOS command prompt with CD support. The MS-DOS command prompt will appear in a moment.

3. Start SMARTDRIVE by typing "SMARTDRV" at the DOS prompt and pressing enter. You don't have to run SMARTDRIVE, but copying the files will be much quicker if you do. The computer will display the DOS prompt again.

4. Enter "CD I386" at the DOS prompt to change to the directory where the setup program starts.

5. Enter "WINNT" at the prompt to start Windows XP setup. The installation program will copy files to your computer and then display a message requesting to reboot.

6. Press the "Enter" key to reboot. The setup program will start again and check that your hard drive format is compatible with Windows XP. If not, it will guide you through partitioning and formatting the drive and then ask you to reboot once more.

7. Press "Enter" to reboot. The computer will restart in Windows XP mode and automatically start the Windows Setup Wizard to detect your hardware and finish the installation.

1 . Insert your Windows installation CD. Reboot the computer. Your computer detects the boot media in your drive and asks you to press any key to boot to the Windows installation disk. Press the space bar on your keyboard. A blue installation window is shown.
2 . Press the "R" key to start the Recovery Console process. Press the "1" key to open the command line console. You are prompted for the administrator password. Enter it into the console and press "Enter."
3 . Type the following text into the command line:


copy e:\i386\ntldr c:


4 . Replace "e" with the drive letter for your CD-ROM drive. This command copies the NTLDR file from your installation CD to your hard drive
5 . Remove the CD from the drive and reboot the computer again. The Windows operating system should successfully boot.

Thanks for using Fixya.

if the system was able to enter the desktop and restarts...once possible cause is a virus...scan the pc via safemode or reinstall windows.

4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

FIXMBR C:
