If the hard drive is not booting, you will probably need to boot from a "rescue" disk, or the original disk for your operating system. Once it is booting, eliminate viruses before attempting to create any partitions. There are several free virus programs available, with one of the most popular being AVG Antivirus from Grisoft. The site is free.grisoft.com.

Anti-virus programs should check through all code on the PC, so whether a program runs in DOS, Windows, or other, should be irrelevant to determining if there is a virus.

A Brief History of Norton Anti-virus


Norton anti-virus is a product of Symantec Corporation. Norton anti-virus helps you to remove viruses and malicious codes from your computer, it also protect you from online threats. Symantec programmed and launched various versions of Norton anti-virus to protect your pc and Internet Security to secure your online activities from hackers.

As per history of Norton products, it's about 25 years before Norton antivirus came on the market. The name of the first Norton anti-virus was Norton Commander, released in the year 1986, served as a standard interface for DOS. This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton Commander was a prototypical orthodox file manager, written by John Socha and released by Peter Norton.


Norton Commander is considered easy to use based on its constant view of two file manipulation objects at once. After starting the program the user sees two panels with file lists. Each panel can be easily configured to show information about the other panel, a directory tree, or a number of other options.


When Symantec acquired Peter Norton Computing from Peter Norton, Norton starts to develop various utilities or applications for DOS, as well as for Windows. Product activation was introduced in Norton anti-virus 2004. Spyware and adware detection and removal tool was introduced to the 2005 version. The redesign main graphical user interface and homepage hijacking protection was released with 2006 version of Norton anti-virus. With the version of 2007 windows 2000 compatibility was dropped and Vista compatibility was introduced, with anti-rootkit technology. Version 2009 and 2010 released with Sonar protection, File Insight, and rogue security software tools. The latest version of Norton anti-virus is 2011, which protect your computer being infected from facebook wall and feed.

How to beat cmapp


The reason why you cannot remove this file is because the file is active under Windows.
If you know the location of this file and its extension, then boot up in DOS mode and use the dos CD command to go to the directory where the cmapp file is location and use the dos DEL command to delete this file.

COMPUTR reformat


You still need to have Operating System disk to do this becuase reformating your CPU will delete all of this but it will also remove viruses. there is a way to remove the viruses provided by Anti virus products in the net but it needs to be upgraded time and again to completely remove them plus you need to check your registry for entries or problems; disk utilities or programs to repair them are also available ther really is no quick fix for this type of stuff if you want to do this your self but it can be done. you need some knowledge about DOS where you can with great patience and skill remove some of the viruses then leave other viruses to antivirus programs. Best of Luck
