I have downloaded some DVD recording software yesterday. This morning as soon as I switched the power on at the mains (plug) my PC started up automatically, without me pushing the 'on' button..? Once it had started the first screen that appeared was 'American Megatrends'? I have not (knowingly) downloaded anything from American Megatrends, as up until now didn't even know what AMI was?! I pretty sure the screen before American Megatrends appeared used to be a Microsoft set up screen (the standard screen that is shown as soon as your PC is powered up)? As you can probably tell I am not particularly IT literate etc. so please be kind with your responses...
Basically has anyone else had this problem? I am assuming the appearance of 'American Megatrends' start up screen, is very much linked to my computer turning itself on automatically? Does anyone know how I remove this unwanted software and revert back to my happy PC. I use Windows XP.
Any help would be massively helpful as I really don't want to spend $200+ (that I haven't got!) getting a professional out to fix it?
A million and one thanks in advance!!!!!
