In an attempt to overcome a problem with an external hard drive a friend loaded ADD onto my laptop. The programme turned out to be in German so we didn't attempt to use it. Problem now when I try to boot up the computer frreezes and I get the message - Acronis Loader wird gestartet... flashed up repeatedly until the processor overheats and the machine shuts down. Pressing cntl alt delete or F2 gets me as far as the pre-boot screen but nothing there works and it jumps back to the German message... HELP... or should that be 'Hilfe' ! The laptop is a Toshiba running Windows XP. Is there any way I can by-pass this programe, get into windows and delete the thing..?
