Question about Computers & Internet

I opened up an email and it has put some viruses onto my computer. I can't seem to delete them so thought I would re-install my old windows xp home edition. It appears the virus has stopped me from doing that as i dont get the option to boot from disk at start up. Can you help me to re-install my xp?

My computer using Win XP SP2 and toshiba MK8025GAS hard disk (80GB) is not booting up due to virus problem. I remove the harddisk and used connected it using SATA/USB cable to my Win Vista laptop. I run...


If it were my computer, I would purchase a new 320GB disk-drive, and connect it. Then, I would re-install Windows onto this NEWER, BIGGER, FASTER, disk-drive, and then install free anti-virus software: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials and then use that SATA/USB cable to copy files/E-mail/music/contacts from the "old" disk-drive onto the new 'C:' drive.

It's like having the police returning your STOLEN car to you. You should:
* check for sugar in the gas-tank
* check for cut brake-lines
* check for lack of oil in engine, transmission, differential
* check for lack of antifreeze
* check for drugs hidden in the door-panels or trunk (or anywhere else)

You should *NOT* just assume that your car is OK, and drive it away!

Similarly, you can NEVER be sure that you have deleted 100% of the "damage" done by the computer-virus. So, a "fresh" install, from "trusted" media, is the "best practises" methodology.

ok i had to do this with my mothers computer, when you delete a partition, you have to make a new one in its place, i say put in the xp cd, then say to create a whole new windows installation, when it asks you to choose a partition, delete all partitions, then make a new one, your choice to size but keep it enough to at least install windows onto it, then after that just reformat that partition and install windows, that should fix it.

Help me..whats going on with windows xp home edition


When installing a new operating system, all file saved will be deleted. Since you've lost all data, you might as well format the entire drive, and then reinstall the vista inspirat thing. Then, download an Avast! anti virus form avast.com. Download the home version, which is free and scan the computer for any viruses. Delete every last one of the suckers.

Old comp had virus


The best way to delete any unwanted content is to install and run the Philips Device Manager software from the product CD, and select the restore option.

This software is only compatible with Windows XP.

Viruses would not cause damage to the MP3 because they do not run any files loaded on to them

No taskbar or start menu?


Sounds like you have format your drive. Good practice is to leave a partition for just Windows and the other for the rest.
