Download a program called spybot s&d either before of after you do a system restore.... if you have vista.. open the start menu and in that box at the bottom type system restore then hit enter. the wizard will open for restore... follow the prompts... in xp look in the control panel

Not sure if your talking about a windows operating system password or a BIOS password that comes up when you first turn it on but either way, as soon as you turn on the laptop, keep pressing the f11 key and it should bring you into the HP Factory Restore. If it doesn't then you'll need a windows cd to restore your laptop back to factory defaults and then load the drivers and any software you'll use on the laptop.
Keep in mind if you have a BIOS password then you'll need to call HP to get help in removing that.

Did you 'turn off' the AUTOPLAY feature of the CD\DVD ? When the player "runs two times at startup", it is trying to find the program on the disc.2nd- Look in internet for HP dv6000 cd\dvd drive replacement.(If that is the ""exact match for the product"" you wrote about) 3rd.goto CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER and look up cd\dvd and uninstall it. REBOOT, when your system comes back it will try to find the cd\dvd. If it does not, it is damaged (kaput!), must be replaced. If Windows finds the cd\dvd drive and reinstalls the drivers, but it does not work, then the heads are dirty or damaged.That Windows found the dvd\cd means that the circuit on the device works.
You probley need to just un install both of the security programs and get somthing like Pc cillian internet security 2008 wich you can go to http://us.trendmicro.com/us/home/ to buy the program first you will need to buy it.
What device are you trying to connect? was there an error message when you plug in the usb device. try booting up your computer to safe mode with networking.
1. Restart the computer 2. Keep on tapping F8 when you have the HP logo screen, using the down/up arrow of the keyboard choose safe mode with networking. if the device still not working then it could be a problem with the USB driver. You may try restoring your computer back to the working time using system restore. Just go to start then Accessories - System tools- system restore.Restore your computer to a working date.
Were you offered any chance to back up settings and files?
Upgrading Win is normally pretty safe with more than one opportunity to save the previous version & setup and/or a restore opportunity.
I doubt your files have been overwritten; they are probably still present unless you were offered and opted for, a reformat of your HD.
There is probably a D: partition on your drive; it may be hidden, but gain access to it to see if you have a recent folder that refers to the previous installation.
