    Then you'll definitely need another HDD to solve that problem. Try running the diagnostics + antivirus checking you've got already installed. Oh, and try to loclize what exe files are running. One of 'em is a virus. But it's also possible that other processes are infected as well...

    youadmireme2,
    i have no idea what's with all these viruses, but the best thing you can do is not to open those emails. these kind of messages regulary have in the subject line the followings: Your website, RE: your document, etc. i can assure you i did not sent you that email and i don't even have your adress in my adressbook
    as for antiviruses, you can try AVG (i can send it to you), Norton Antivirus or [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Rady, im not trying to place blame on you by any means, please dont get that impression. I just mentioned your name because it says its from you (see original posting). I just want to warn everyone to be alert, its weird that no one else got the email

    I tried running several virus scans, revealed all hidden files, ended any process that wasnt necessary to run the PC, but last night I encountered a HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Problem, this just seems to get worse and worse.
    I tried re-installing windows last night and well I left the PC alone for a while during the installation and when I came back there was a blue screen I never saw before saying something about disconnecting hardware and some error # that I did not copy down.

    I thought I was good with PC's but this is a tough one.
    I cant even boot off of the CD or repair windows... nothing works

    Then you'll definitely need some pro help... It's serious so be sure to ask for that help.

    The virus started it all...
    then I think there was a problem during the reinstallation process with some of my newer hardware (i.e. video card, soundcard, TV Card or firewire port)
