Specs: Windows xp
Help, i had a scam sent to me when surfing the the net, it said i had a virus and sent me to a web site called Antivir solutions. I was in the process of trying to remove this by carrying out a computer spyware scan which was taking its time hence i left the computer to do it's thing and upon checking the computer later it wont bootup and i get the following codes...PXE-E53 AND PXE-MOF im running windows XP and have tried to check the bios settings via depressing F12 and selecting it to boot up via the Hard drive,but no joy, i would hate to loose all my pictures etc thus does anybody know of a fix....please speak in Very basic terms as i really no nothing about computers.

Antivir Solutions is a fake antivirus. The messages you are seeing are for PXE booting (booting over a network). Most users will only see this message if their hard drive is bad or lacks a boot sector. Reinstalling Windows XP without reformatting should replace the boot sector, but it won't fix your virus problem.

Thanks for your reply, but as i say i'm thick with computers, so does reinstalling xp without the reformatting mean that i will be able to retrieve all my pictures, files etc?

Yes, unless they were destroyed by the spyware.
