Do you still have your recovery software ( Typically its a windows XP disk and a drivers disk)? If you don't you can re-download a copy from any torrent site. Just make sure if you have home you get home not Pro.

tap f8 on bootup and select safe mode with networking. Then download and run these 3 programs:
1- Malwarebytes
2- Trojan Remover
3- Hitman Pro
Fix all they find.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Hi, Only delete your drive as a last resort. The advice XPUser4Real sounds like your best option.
Once your pc's clean turn System Restore on/off to clear any viruses hiding in there.
