    hello again... on my other computer which cant get on the internet. it has an anticmos virus and a stoned.gen virus. i had a virus protector so i thought but the complete version is on line. i have borrowed a cd mcafee virus cd which wont load in the cd drive because it is not there. the virus hid it i assume or did something to the connection. i turned the computer off with the disk in and went with the mcafee emergency deal, to scan. i get the this message "the boot sector can not be read". and please examine the partition sector. i not sure what to do for either. when i reboot after the scan... i still have the anticmos and it says to use a recovery disk... which i dont have ... i am not sure what to do... i ve read about using a boot disk or scan disk...which i do not have. can you help or direct me on what to do next and or where to download what i need... thanks eric :cool:

    Hi eric,

    I struggled a bit trying to figure out where this post belonged. You posted it in the Javacool SpywareBlaster forum, but since it has nothing to do with that it needed to be moved.

    Since it appears that you have an almost completely non-functional PC, asking constantly for recovery disks (with perhaps a corrupt boot sector), it would seem that you are beyond a simple virus / trojan scan or repair operation, but I'm not sure. I was thinking one of those forums as an alternative, however, it may be you are getting close to needing to totally reformat that system, so getting help with that here in Software & Services might be what's needed - unless others have additional ideas about how to save your system from having to do that.

    It sounds as if your floopy and cd are pretty much disabled If you have a factory restore disc or operating system installation disc you might try putting it in the cd drive and rebooting with the disc in the drive and see if it will boot and run the program if it will I would advise that you go ahead and do a reformat and OS reinstall. It sounds like your computer has gotten to the point that it may be your only way to get your comp working again.
