bunny,

If you have many errors, it is best to save the data you need on a CD, Floppy, or another computer then format (erase) your hard drive. Then you can re-install windows and all of your hardware, and the data you saved from your old computer. Does this sound like something you would like to do?

Don't you dare put Norton on there...lol. Norton is a huge resouce hog, get AVG FREE, it is a free program. Below is a list of free programs that I recommend.

I only list here, the programs that I have used and I’m satisfied with, I know there are other great programs, but these are just the ones that I use, and can verify, as being worthy.

I would also recommend you first clean your hard drive from viruses and then reinstall windows... if you dont want to take headache to scan your hard drive for viruses and malware ... just backup your data to another source other than the hard drive and repartition.

I've just bought the Norton Antivirus 2006 but when i try too install.Ther's a message appears say:
"The setup was unable to update the MSI system component. if this problem continues please contact Microsoft at www.micorsoft.com."
What can i do now?

You may also want to scan you hard drive for errors. Go to My Computer, R-click on the C: drive, and select properties, then select tools tab, and select error checking.

I told you not to get Norton...lol. You may have a virus that won't allow it to install.

i bought it b4 i read this :cry:

So you could first scan with the online virus scanner (panda preferably) and then install nav 2006 afterwards.

Have you checked msconfig? If not go to start - run - msconfig and then the startup tab and disable anything you don't know.

i couldn't go to any site that u recommended. :sad:

So Bunny, I take it you're still having problems?

Yah i think i should remove everything in hard drive and reinstall windows.
But what is the best way to do this? :cheesy:
But i'm kinda hesitating cuz i have so many media files that i love and i won't able to downlaod them again.What can i do now or that's the only way?

You could try burning those files to a CD. Small size (20-40 gig) hard drives are pretty cheap, maybe you could buy one, and install your windows on there, then slave your old hard drive to it, copy your data to the new drive, and wipe the old hard drive, to use as storage and backup. I guess it depends on how much those files mean to you.

If you are using XP, try and download Ewido and scan your computer with it.

You can download a trial version of Ewido here: http://www.ewido.net/en/

Be sure you update it before using it, and when it finds a problem, be sure to select the check box to do the same action (clean) when it finds a problem, otherwise, you will have to click continue, to keep scanning with every problem it finds.

Heres what i would try ,just did it with a laptop that had much the same problem as you are having
.reboot ,hitting the f8 key to go to safe mode ,choose safe mode with networking ,and you should be able to connect to the net .and run the online virus scans ,not just one of them 2 or 3 .
you should also get hijackthis and go to the security section of this fourm ,
as for moving files from you laptop to another hard drive you could try a usb dada transfer cable they sell here[Canada ] for about 30 dollars or less

Right-click the files that you want to keep and select to scan them with your anti-virus program.

I'm sorry bunny, I forgot you have a laptop, so scratch my getting another hard drive suggestion.

Try this:
XP Repair install

Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, read this Warning#2!
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

It would be best, however, if you could use a friend's computer to back up your files. Using a crossover cable, connect your laptop with your friend's computer and copy your data off of your laptop. Then you're free to format away. I know it's a little tedious, but judging by the extent of anguish you're going through, I STRONGLY recommend a format and reinstall of windows.

Oh, and you can try another antivirus. avast! antivirus. I gave up Norton recently as it slowed my system to a crawl. I find avast! pretty effective. Besides, it's free for home use. Head here: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

Hi Bunny,

You have quite a few problems with your computer, but you should be able to get it cleaned up without reinstalling your Operating System.

Follow the suggestions and instructions in the links below to begin the process, and then post a HijackThis log in the Virus forum.

That said, you should still have backups of all the important things you wish to keep -- sooner or later your hard drive will fail or something else will happen that will cause you to lose some or all of what you have.

You can burn the data onto CD's which has alreday been advised, or you can get a USB flash drive (or several if necessary); they aren't too expensive, but I guess it depends on how important the stuff is to you.
