Ok main question i would have for you , can you get to the control panel to un-install program, if you can remove it, power down then power up again.Put cd in your cd drive let it install and let it pick what directory it want to install most of the time it will leave a icon in your tray and list on your startup menu.

turn off your anti-vircus before you start to install it may be recognizing a file as a virus and it did not install

Tip

A boot disk (startup disk) and why you need it?


The Windows installation disc contains the files necessary to start Windows, so it is itself a boot disk. A boot disk is actually not a computer disk in the shape of a boot. If it was, most disk drives would have a difficult time reading it. Instead, a boot disk is a disk that a computer can start up or "boot" from. If a problem is preventing Windows from starting, you can use the installation CD to start Windows. The installation CD also contains Startup Repair, which you can use to repair Windows if a problem prevents it from starting correctly. Startup Repair can automatically fix many of the problems that in the past required a boot disk to fix.

A boot disk (sometimes called a startup disk) is a type of removable media, such as a floppy disk or a CD, that contains startup files that your computer can use to start Windows. CD and DVD boot disks are often used to start up a computer when the operating system on the internal hard drive won't load.The startup files are also stored on your computer's hard disk, but if those startup files become damaged, you can use the files on a boot disk to start Windows

Earlier operating systems that used the FAT or FAT32 file systems, such as Windows 95 and Windows 98, a boot disk was especially useful because it allowed a person to access files on a hard disk even if Windows was unable to start. This ability also represented a security risk, because anyone with a boot disk and access to the computer could start the computer and access any file. Hard disks formatted with NTFS have built-in security features that prevent using a boot disk to access files..

Let looks at some useful "boot CD downloads" to create one for Windows OS,s.
1-Ultimate Boot CD for Windows - This BartPE-based boot disc comes with a huge selection of tools to access your data and get your PC booting properly again. Some of them are even useful.UBCD takes a long time to load and asks you some odd questions before it's finally up. But once it's there, you can edit the Windows Registry (yes, the one on the hard drive) in RegEdit, recover deleted files, and even run benchmarks. setting up UBCD is identical to creating a BartPE disc--with the same possibility of failure. But when it works, you get a lot more.Price: Free
Download Ultimate Boot CD for Windows.


2-Puppy Linux - A third party application to create a boot CD using Linux and great for accessing NTFS-formatted hard drives--especially if you're not comfortable with Linux's whole mount concept. Just open the Drives window and select a drive, and Puppy will mount it for you--in read/write mode, if possible.Puppy will mounting the drive with read/write permissions and you not only can copy your files elsewhere, but you can also edit them. Puppy Linux comes with AbiWord, which supports .doc files, and Gnumeric, which supports .xls. And even if it mounts read-only, you can still copy the files to an external drive, most of which are formatted in the universally accessible FAT32 file system.
But be careful how you click. Actions that take double-clicks in Windows, such as opening a file, take only one in Puppy.
Price: Free
Download Puppy Linux.

3-BartPE - The BartPE operating system makes a pretty good boot disc on its own, getting you into Windows and letting you access your drive. It doesn't have much in the way of repair utilities, but it has chkdsk, which should probably be the first one you try.To create a CD, the program needs the Windows 2000 or XP installation files. One place you're sure to find them is an actual Windows installation CD-ROM. But the recovery disc that came with your PC probably doesn't have them.
Luckily, if your PC came with XP installed (and thus, not with a true XP CD), the necessary files are probably in a folder called C:\Windows\i386. But I do mean probably, not definitely. However, since the PE Builder is free, you're not losing much if it can't create a disc.
Price: Free
Download BartPE.

4-Vista Recovery Disc - a unique distribution of Microsoft's own recovery tools.This Recovery Disc is basically a Vista installation disc minus the install files. It even has an "Install now" button that asks for a Product Key before failing. You're better off clicking the Repair your computer button. Among its Vista-only options are a tool for diagnosing and fixing startup problems, a version of System Restore that uses restore points on the hard drive, the restore portions of Vista's backup program, and a memory diagnostic tool. Price: Free
Download Vista Recovery Disc.

5-Trinity Rescue Kit - TRK's command line interface could humble anyone but the most devoted Linux geek.
If you take the time to read the 46-page documentation and learn the program, you'll be rewarded next time disaster strikes. Among the tools that will be at your disposal are a script that runs 4 different malware scanners, a tool for resetting passwords, a Registry editor, a program that clones an NTFS partition to another PC over a network, a mass undeleter that tries to recover every deleted file on the drive, several tools for recovering data off a formatted or dying disk, two tools for fixing master boot record repair programs, and hardware diagnostics.
Price: Free
Download Trinity Rescue Kit.



Hope that you understand the benefits of having a boot disk on your wardrobe.

You will need to use another computer and download Kaspersky rescue disk. After downloading the disk image burn it to a cd and boot the machine with this disk. Run the rescue disk and it will detect the infected files. When the program if finished select remove all infected files and reboot your computer. You also need to either install a good antivirus program or update the one you have to protect against this type of infection. The Kaspersky rescue disk can be downloaded from their site here:

Give this a try you probably have a mbr virus.

Download The following iso listed below. It is the latest version of the Kaspersky rescue disk. You need to burn it to a CD with a program like Imgburn (Which is also FREE like the iso file). Then you need to boot from the CD and run the scanner. It should fix you right up.

Boot in safe mode, search the entire hard disk for Avanquest or Fix-it files and folders and manually delete them. Then boot normally and remove the Fix-it 8 entry from the Add/Remove Programs list using this

I have a SONY Viao VGN-NR220E laptop with Vista home premium.I was trying to restore the laptop to the factory condition, but after i selected the option to restore to factory defaults, nothing happened...


Hello,
Some of the solutions that you can try are
1 - Boot in Safe Mode....switch on the notebook, press F8 after machine starts.....if you get the options, chose Safe Mode and then once u get into the Desktop panel switch off and switch on again...now let it boot in normal mode.....
2 Else you have to have the option of loading the defaults from the rescue disk in the above process, insert the Resuce disk that you created and start.
3 The final option is to Reformat the Disk and install the WIN XP / Vista OS...the best is install WinXP...to do that insert the WinXP disk and switch on the machine again....follow on screen instructions
Do a partition of your disk, Format and install XP in C: and leave D: or E: to save your critical Data files....

Raw file system


To fix the problem
Disable the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature in the CPUCool program or similar utility.
Boot to the Windows 2000 or XP installation CD, and at the Startup menu, press R for repair.
In the Recovery Console, type the following:
chkdsk /p
When the CHKDSK process has finished, reboot the computer.
Run the program again.
The error should no longer be reported unless you start using the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature again.

Error occurs with PartitionMagic 8.0
If you encounter Error 1516 with PartitionMagic 8, first run CHKDSK /F on the affected partition. For instructions on how to run CHKDSK, read How to Run Microsoft's CHKDSK from the Command Line. If this does not fix the error, try running PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch, which causes file system errors to be ignored.
To run PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch
Boot from the first PartitionMagic rescue disk.
When you are prompted to insert the second rescue disk, press Ctrl+C to drop to the command (A:>) prompt.
Insert the second PartitionMagic rescue disk and type the following:
pqmagic /ifc
Press Enter.
please go ahead and try the above steps may be it will fix it

Norton rescue disk removal


Your best bet is to go to CNET.com and download a program named Revo Uninstaller. It's free and will clear out everything down to the depths of the registry.

If even Revo doesn't see it, I would reload Norton on your system, then uninstall with Revo.
