Such as make, model of the machine plus what Windows XP CDs you have to work with. Also is this XP Home, Pro and what version is that CD.
Tell us if you are ready to pop a new hard disk in (so we can save your files) or do you need files saved (you didn't tell.)
My computer (Windows XP Home) has recently been afflicted with a number of annoying viruses. Most recently, well the only one I know the name of, was the Antivirus XP 2008 virus. My computer was scanned using a malware program, and I thought all of the virus was removed. After doing this I used McAfee to scan for viruses to make sure everything was gone. McAfee found a LOT and after the scan was completed, there were 4 viruses that could not be removed or Quarantined. I shut the computer down ( I needed to go to work) but I was able to do things normally at that time, I thought my problems were solved.
However, when I returned this evening - I turned my computer on, the windows logo appeared, and then it took me to a login screen (which I don't usually need to do). I had no idea what my password would be so I just pressed enter and that seemed to bring success. Unfortunately, after the welcome noise sounded, the screen just went blank and never loaded - NOTHING. I pressed ctrl alt dlt NOTHING. I can't right click either. The hourglass came next to the arrow every once in awhile so i would get excited that something would happen... but again NOTHING.
I turned off and pressed F8 to get into safe mode. NOTHING. Basically the only thing i can do on my computer is turn it on and off by pressing the button, and move the mouse around the screen. That's it. Please Help
Thanks so much
