    Exclamation Mitte!!!! Help!! ( or Any Other Puter Guros)

    Heya!
    Sorry to bother you but I know that this is just your favouratist pastime in the whole world

    OK,my puter crashed and burned and is in the hospital until Friday ( me thinks the Bigpond setup disc did it? Possible?) Anyways, this is sons friends puter that they found unusable due to malicious crap and virus ware) I've created a new user account with admin rights to be able to get here but something sneaky isstill embedded into explorer I think as it wont , repeat WONT,let me get near a fire wall or online virus site come hell or high water.

    Cant reinstall a later one or Mozilla from disk as it seems to be blocking the rom drives as well . Am about to attempt firefox from the net and see what happens but thought I'd light the Bat Beacon first

    Have you tried turning it off, then on, as it is re-booting, tap the f8 key, when the options come up, scroll to "Lask Known Good Configuration", then hit enter, hopefully it will reboot properly then. Worth a try if you havent already done so.

    Take one stuffed computer, place in slow cooker, add water, & cook on high for 8 hours.

    If it's got some persistant computer flea - you need to start from scratch - boot with a bootup disk or operating install disk and format the hard drive(s). And then install from fresh.

    setting up a new admin account will make no difference to the malware - they laugh and fart in your general direction.

    Can I hijack for a bit? I've noticed that with my lappy when my finger is on the mousepad thingy that the lappy buzzes, soon as I remove my finger it stops buzzing.

    Any suggestions?
