Go to a friends computer and search for "Trinity Rescue CD version 3.3", try to get build 321 or greater. Burn the ISO file you download on to a CD blank and then set the computer to boot from CD (This setting should be in the BIOS settings). Boot with the Trinity Rescue CD you just created and make sure the computer is plugged into a known good network connection (not a modem connection but a cable or DSL connection) chose item number 6 (I think) on the menu. Item #6 should be "Virus scan non-interactive" Be aware that you only have 10 seconds to choose the item you want from the menu before Trinity Rescue CD boots. use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move up and down the menu. After you choose Virus scan non-interactive, the computer will reach out to the internet and update it's virus checkers and scan your computer for viruses and rootkits. This might take a while. If you have a larger hard drive (80GB or larger) try this before you go to bed and let the Virus scan run all night. When it is done scanning (it will scan your hard drive with 5 different virus scanners) it will have a command prompt (DOS) type screen type "exit" and remove the CD and reboot your computer using the hard drive and THEN try to run Lavasoft ad-aware or Spybot Search and Destroy.

Windows XP freezes half way through Restore program?


Select an earler restore point. If it still doesn't work step back earlier. Somewhere in the restore date history there has to have been a date where the system worked. Remember that the restore process can take some time if a lot of material has to be restored

Have you rcently installed something that could be causing the issue? Without knowing exactly what happened prior to the problem, I would recommend using the Restore CD that came with your computer. That should solve you issue. It takes normally anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours, but it might save you time in the long run from troubleshooting. Just remember to save anything on your computer that you need that wasn't there when you got the computer to a cd or disk before you do the restore.
