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.

Starts. & shut down immediatly


Rootkit and boot viruses do this.best solution is to try safe mode...if it still restarts then you need to either piggyback the drive onto another machine and run several antivirus boot kit virus checks.....tdskiller...malwarebytes....kapersky rescue disk....to name a few....if yiu can't remove hdd and you are able to download hirens boot disk 15.2 and put it on a usb stick you can setup the boot sequence in the bios to run the usb first...thus will install a temporary copy of windows Xp onto the computers ram.this bypasses the boot sequence of an infected computer.then run combifix.
you can also download combo fix from bleepingcomputer.com
This is a complete package that runs rootkit checks and cleans out most of the things that cause boot loops.good luck.

My computer is infected by spyware this morning the wall paper in the desktop change by spyware


That is a serious virus, I have had it before. Download Avast! antivirus (avast.com - there is a free home version) and run a full system scan. If that doesn't work, you may need to completely wipe your system by inserting the windows XP disc, rebooting, and pressing whatever key your computer prompts for to boot from the CD. Then simply follow the instructions on-screen. (Perform system restore first, if that doesn't work perform system recovery)

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.

Whenever i run my computer i get windows cannot find ssvichosst.exe at the startup


sounds like a virus or malware has infected your system. if you can at least boot in safe mode, do a virus/malware scan of your system. if available, schedule a boot scan. If unable to boot using your hard disk, try to boot using your Windows CD and try to go to the recovery console to perform your scans, otherwise, it may be faster to just completely wipe out your hard disk and reinstall Windows. if you have important data, try to create a backup, but be sure to do a full scan of the backup afterwards before restoring them back after an OS reinstall

Installing windows xp


You cannot install Windows XP over WIndows Vista. Microsoft has put a lock on the Vista software and will not allow you to downgrade to a lower software. The only way you can do it is to wipe your hard drive completely clean first with a disk deleting software or with the command "fdisk" at the DOS prompt. However, this is dangerous and I do not recommend it unless you have someone professionally trained to do it. It will wipe everything off of your disk and then you can load Windows XP.

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 ?

Hi hope u can help atleast ...


That is a simple problem with a difficult answer. The bios has been infected by a virus that has placed its self in the chip. You need to flash the bios chip which is very diffcult on a laptop motherboard. 

Take the motherboard completely out of the casing. Find the bios battery and remove it and keep it removed for about an hour, come back to it replace the battery and then try to reinstall xp home. If this continues you'll need to wipe the bios and reinstall it and that is more or less a waste of time and a pain in the backside.

Facing windows XP problem


Try running Windows in safe mode by turning the computer and holding down on the F8 button while the computer is booting.

Instead of the Windows XP screen you will get a menu displayed. Select the safe mode option and press enter.

If Windows doesn't complete startup in safe mode, you will have to reinstall Windows.

What anti virus program are you using?
