Hi.
I have a 7 years computer that I didn't use for the last 4 years because I
had a newer one. Last few days my son started to use my computer so I had to
go back to the old one. I turn it on forgetting that there was no security
software so I got 309 spywares, viruses, etc, etc...I downloaded
Safety.live.com and I have been able to get rid of almost all of them with
the exception of this W32.myzor.fk@yf. I tried torestore the computer to an
earlier time but since I did not use this computer for so long there was no
earlier date to use. I downloaded Window XP with success. Later on, since I
was desperate, I tried to reinstall windoww XP with a CD, NO success.NOW I
cannot even go online, a pop-up says that there is no connection.I tried to
run "check the disk " many times but it cannot finish it because, it says,
there is not enough space, I have 20 GB and is almost all free.I AM
DESPERATE< PLEASE HELP ME.
Remember that I am a complete illiterate in computer lexicon and I am a
foreigner, Italian, so, please use symple therminology, Thank you in advance,
Pio

since it is a tiny 20gig hd,
just toss it out and get
a newer, bigger, faster and
empty/clean one.

then try your steps again....

Thank you for answering, I thought about that but unfotunately I lost the
drivers and utilities CD. I do have a very new window XP and drivers CD for
my dell dimension 2350, do you think I could install them on this computer
once I put a new 80 gig HD?

it would seem to be
a reasonable solution.

however, i do not think that
microsoft will let the o.s. get
activated if it was previously
activated on another pc.

remember, that microsoft
has taken a firm position and
created programming to stop
replication of the installation
cd onto multiple pc's.
