January 4, 2011 at 21:11:19
Specs: Windows XP
it seems so that a virus sneaked into my PC, beacuse of that none of my applicatins/softwares work other than that of the windows! Google Chrome doesn't work, Utorrent, IDM, nothing! not even any games..

I want to re-install my windows using CD, but when i insert the bootable CD into the CD-rom nothing comes... when it's time to recieve the messge "press any key to boot from CD" only a small dot blinks nothing else! I have tried everything related to this post but nothing woks!

I really would appreciate anyones help

Thankyou! :)

My understanding is to do the press any key only once. Then after computer
restarts, and press any key happens again, leave computer alone. Some time later, computer will start the install of XP. Unknown by myself how the wait is.

Why don't you just boot into safe mode & do a full virus scan?

As for doing a reinstall, you realize you will lose everything, right? Do you have all your important files backed up? Do you have copies of all your device drivers & programs so that they can be reinstalled? Did you check the boot order in the BIOS to make sure the CD drive is listed before the HDD?
