Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Having opened a suspect e-mail by mistake and clicking on an even more suspect web-site link, my PC is in a sorry state. It won't start up, even on 'Safe mode'. What I get is a series of messages about drivers scrolling up the screen, then everything stops.
I have the original XP (Home) CD, so I can change the boot order and get it to start with that, but not too sure how to proceed thereafter. Can anyone point me to a simple procedure that I can follow to get it all working again?
I use Norton Protection Centre virus-guard, which is included in, and kept updated by, my BTInternet contract. No complaints to date.
Does anyone have experience of the 'SPOTMAU' CD, advertised as a cure-all for these sort of issues, costing 'just $49' by an American company. Would this help me?
I would be grateful for any suggestions anyone might have for this.
Best wishes and season's greetings,
You have been badly virus'ed.
Get your disk to "repair" windows.
If possible, defrag computer using a cd boot linux if needed.
If alll else fails then copy all your good files onto a drive and format.
Do not get any software, you will probably lose money for something that will not work.
