And what happens after the video format message? Does the computer boot? Does Windows XP run OK?
If so, look at your Startup folder to see if a link to a video file is there (and starting up automatically).
Once you find it, move that like to your desktop and / or delete it from the Startup folder.
If video is starting by an entry in the registry (in the Run section), then it's another story, and I wouldn't recommend that you touch or edit the registry if you don't have the experience.
Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP back in April, no security updates, so you are at risk in terms of security. Consider upgrading to Windows 7, or buying a machine from a source other than a garage sale. Just suggesting.
Hi...I'll try to help. Firstly I would get rid of Norton. Norton is bloated and makes the computer go slow. For antivirus and firewall you should download AVAST. It's FREE it's great and I use it on my computer. Bye bye Norton install AVAST and do a full scan. You did great defragging and getting rid of some programs but remnants could be left behind in the registry. Download and install a program called "CCleaner" do a google search. It's free also. (as a funny note CCleaner used to be called "CrapCleaner" but people objected to it) Use CCleaner to clean your system and the registry etc. Then you should download and instal a program called "Mallwarebytes" It's free and will clean out your system of any trojans and mallware. As far as the printer and burner is concerned sometimes the drivers have bugs in them. You can uninstall the drivers and then do a reinstall if mallwarebytes and the scan found problems with them. Let me know how you make out with this. We can try other stuff too... From one geek to another LOL...Hank
