Hi,

I have following message displayed in my Father's computer:

Apc Main
Please re install Performance Center

There was virus attack earlier and its been solved with instructions from this forum. There is no other problem that I have noticed.

Thanks for your help !

PS: I have attached picture file of how message is displayed. Sorry, I couldn't get clearer than that.

To Bob:
OK. I've had that same message too. And for a second I thought your strategy would work, but it goes wrong at a certain point. Any other that doesn't require XP disc or could re-explain the first way more thoroughly? Thanks!
