Question about IBM Aptiva E 240 (2158240) PC Desktop
I've created a virus killer usb, I'd like to use it to boot to the usb drive of my IBM Aptiva desktop pc running Windows XP professional SP2 to launch the virus killing program in my USB created to scan the pc in order to cure the computer if it's infected.
How about this, Boot to safe mode with Networking. Download MALWAREBYTES at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Run a FULL SCAN, Delete ALL results, reboot. ALSO, run YOUR UP-TO-DATE Anti Virus, a Full Scan.

OK Win98 doesn't play well with USB, when Win98 came out USB was very new, and NOT supported properly untill Win98SE... and even then it is a pain and real problematical. I would suggest you get a Ethernet connected DSL modem.. Else ya gonna have no end of problems regardless of what ya do including "Flashing" I think that model PC has Ethernet built in? otherwise get a PCI Ethernet Card and use that instead of USB.. ya be good to go. I would also upgrade if possible to Win98SE PLUS install ALL Updates there are still Win98 suport on the net, simply Google for it.. good Luck.

You will need to install the XP drivers for you model IBM, you can download them from the IBM website find the link to support and driver download. You could use the driver restore disk that came with your IBM "IF" it came with "XP" installed. BPCS

I searched for hours for a solution to this. Here it is:
1). Restart your computer, NOT using ctrl - alt - del
2). Press F1 when guided to.
3). When you get into the config menu, select Start Options, then hit enter twice.
There are all the options you need! Cool, huh?
