    I am NOT pc savvy :oops: and don't know what to do about virus. Will not allow me to access desktop or anything else. Sticks at blue screen. Purchased new win98 startup disks. Wondering can I just install on pc as if nothing was ever there (with understanding I will lose files) and if so will I be able to take care of removing virus at that time? I have been given several suggestions, such as:
    Conduct HIJACK virus scan (too lengthy, too difficult)
    Venture into DOS (YIKES!)
    Start pc in safe mode (tried this doesn't work)
    Do repair with recovery cds (missing #1 disk)
    Can someone please break it down in "dummy" language the easiest fastest way to get pc up and running again? I don't even know what to do with the start up disks
    :doubt: ...please help!!!! Thanks :'(
