If your computer was infected then it is still infected unless you have used an anti virus program to remove the infection. After removing the virus you then can install xp. Hope this helps.

Im having prblems with my toshiba nb250, after i change o.s. ...it wont boot anymore.....i checked the hard disks and memory to refresh it...it seems ok,...... what seems to be the problem...i really cant...


what os did you have before, and what os do you have now? because the problem could be that if you went from xp to 7 or vista or vice versa, they use different programs to boot, but unless you did a complete hard drive wipe, both boot programs will still be there and interfere with each other. so if you did a clean install, your going to have to do again, but this time your going to do a complete hard drive wipe before installing the os. if you upgraded from xp to 7, then try using the start up repair, it should come up if your os doesn't boot up, or if it doesn't come up, then try inserting the cd, it should appear there. if you need further assistance, let me know, and goodluck.

How to Clean Computer from Viruses


Sometimes your computer might get to the point that you won't be able to do anything on it because it's infected with viruses and trojans. This is one of the worst infections you can get and you need to follow these steps in order to get rid of the infected files.<br /><br />1. Download Hiren's Boot CD from a different computer if your doesn't work http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip <br /><br />2. Burn it on a CD and then put the CD into the computer full with viruses<br /><br />3. Boot from CD when prompted and from the CD menu select Mini XP which will load a mini copy of Windows XP onto your machine<br /><br />4. After Windows has loaded, go to Hiren's Boot CD menu and from menu select Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware<br /><br />5. Once Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is loaded, run a clean on your computer. This will temporary and hopefully forever will remove some of the trojans and the rogue antivirus<br /><br />6. When the scan is finished click to remove the infected files and restart your computer. Don't forget to take out the CD<br /><br />7. From the other computer download a FREE antivirus Microsoft Security Essentials from this link http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/<br /><br />8. Install it on the infected machine. Upon restart you will be able to do this, although the computer may be still infected. After installation of Microsoft Security Essentials, run a full computer scan to clean any infected files that weren't already removed<br />

What to do,computer is full of viruses wont let me in anywhere,system locked up,


In cases like this, you have no alternative but to format the hard disk and install Windows again.
You need your Windows installation CD and product installation code. After installing Windows and the Service packs, plus the computer's device drivers, then activate Windows, and install your programs.

Error, my computer cannot access some programs and it works very slow and get always hung.


You probably have some virus and/or malware infections. Clean up your system:
  1. Restart computer into Safe-Mode with Networking (press F5 or F8 repeatedly whilst booting)
  2. Run an online virus scan here
  3. Download, install & update Malwarebytes
  4. Run a full scan & reboot if/when asked.
  5. Clean up your system by installing and running Ccleaner
If you still have problems after cleaning up your system post back which programs you are having trouble accessing.

Would like to know if there is a way to install GIga Pocket without wiping wIndows Professional XP3 clean just to install Windows Xp Home Media Edition


XP Home Media Edition is technically a customized version of XP Pro. If you want to install the two versions side by side, you'll need to Dual Boot the computer, which requires changing the partition. There are various utilities out there that can do this, but it may end up causing problems for the older version of Windows. Do some research on setting up dual booting and decide if you're comfortable going that route. If not, consider having a technical friend or professional doing it for you.

Computer had a virus so i installed a kill disk and wiped the hard drive clean now it wont do anything im trying to install windows xp pro the computer s/n is cnh7280dh7


Hi,
Is your bios set to boot to the CD first?

You can download the 'windows xp setup disks' if you have a floppy drive on that computer
from here
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=E8FE6868-6E4F-471C-B455-BD5AFEE126D8&displaylang=en

or you can install an older version of windows that WILL run from DOS like win98, or winme, and then install your XP afterwards.

I hope this solves your problem, thank you, good luck.

Windows xp virus problem-windows will not boot up


XP Antivirus 2008 is one of the latest counterfeit antispyware that devastates the wolrd wide web. XP Antivirus 2008 usually come up after you installed a video codec that come with Trojan, malware and virus. XP Antivirus 2008 normally generates fake and misleading system popup error messages so end-users will be tricked into purchase XP Antivirus 2008.

This is one of the warnings from the net about this program.

a system restore with disks or a full reinstall may be in your future.... reboot and tap f8 and then boot to safe mode.... does that work ?
