Question about IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 Notebook
If you know the person responsible for this... Go beat him up!
Okay but seriously, I think you're right. A full reformat and reinstallation is the only hope for this laptop. YES it will stop him (make sure you do a full reformat not a quick). I don't think the Mecer disk will work. However if your windows XP cd key is printed on the bottom of your laptop (it is on most). You'll need to get your hands on a copy of that version of windows (Windows XP Professional SP2 is an example) and install using YOUR cd key (not the one provided with the disk you will be using).
(In this case the Mecer disk MIGHT work if it's the same version of windows)
If this fails you could contact wherever you bought the laptop from and see if they could provide you with a windows xp disk for your machine.
Good luck! If all else fails, you could buy a new copy of windows, or switch to linux! *gasp*
