| My computer recognizes all 4 gigs, at least that is what Windows says and BIOS...|
In any case, that is unrelated. The reason i need the reformat is due to the fact that this guy has a army full of keyloggers, downloaders and whatever else there can be in his registry. I tried to install my antivirus, but I cannot even get online with his computer to update. One of his registry keys is missing, and another .dll file.
It is best to clean the mess out, and start fresh,his virtual memory warning pops up even when I use the bot scan he has on there.
I was able to get into the boot sequence yesterday, when I made the mistake of booting the Hard Dr 1st. I should have left it alone. WHen the HD was 2nd I was getting into BIOS, but now I cannot even get into the F88 screen. THere was also a screen for the Ultility Manager,but it wasn't much help, it was F9 or F10.
Anyway, I still can't get to BIOS. Or find a way to clean this mess out. I still think the best deal is the reformat. Without much memory and a small HD it is possible that most of the power is going to rumming the bugs, not the OS. Besides, I really don't want to be on a network with a infested Desktop. My laptop has been clean and secure since day one with Norton 360 and Spyware Doc. Knock on wood.
