Specs: Windows XP
Hey people,
I need some help please. I had a virus on, did a AVG scan and then it asked that I restart my pc, which I did. However, now it asks me to logon, and so I click ok, but just after it logs on (with the anoying sound), it logs off by itself. I thought, to hell with that, I will re install xp, but now nothing happens, it won't install. It doesn't read from the cd, that part about "boot from cd" doesn't come up. I tried safe mode, still logs on and logs off by itself. What can I do?? Someone help please!!!

As far as not being able to re-install WinXP goes the boot order in the BIOS must be set to have the CD drive before the hard drive in the boot order. Also, the CD must be bootable. What type of WinXP CD do you have?

Hi man,

I have Windows xp Home edition, but rcently got hooked up with windows 7. Well, normally (before I got the virus) it did boot from cd first, and therefore I believe that something might have changed this setting, prob since the virus started biatchin' my pc. I will do the bios settings and just change the boot order then. Thanks a lot!

Another question for anyone. Now it seems my pc at varsity is infected with this virus too, which means everytime I work on it, and save stuff on my flasdisc, I will then again infect my pc at home, right. But, would avg pick it up and stop it from infecting my pc, or will the whole process of avg scan-restart-logging in and out automatically happen again? I have all my thesis stuff on my flashdrive and will have to work on it at home. I'm too scared to run avg on my varsity pc, since that might happen to the pc as well, and I will then be in deep sh*t!

Any thought on this...anyone??
