My kids got a virus on their Windows XP desktop. I tried everything, including malwarebytes, to get rid of the infestation but no go. So I decided to fdisk, reformat and do a Win98 to Win2K upgrade...except when I started the Win98SE install, the pc said "Insufficient memory to initialize Windows."
This is a pre-made PC I bought from Discount Electronics, a fairly recent Dell Optiplex. Aside from the CDROM and possibly the floppy drive not working, it was functional.
Am I dealing with 2 issues here, a software (virus) and a hardware (possible RAM failure)? Or does this have more to do with it being a refurbished PC with perhaps some extensive issues we weren't told about? What do you think?
