    recently some spyware was installed onto my computer, so i decided to do a system restore from an image made on the 23rd of november.
    i dont remember the details, but it said that it needed to restart the computer before it would work, so i did.
    and all isaw after that was this "_" flashing on and off in the upper left hand corner of my screen. seeing this going on for the next half an hour i decided to try poking around and see what was going on, but nothing happened. all my computer did was beep at me from the internal speaker attached to the motherboard.
    now my computer won't boot at all, all i see upon restarting is the option to go to the BIOS screen, and the flashing underscore in the corner.

    i loaded acronis boot manager and re-imaged it from there, setting my drive C as an active drive, but my computer still wont boot.
    HELP

    What operating system, XP or Vista, and which version and build of True Image are you using?

    and on true image, the CD says "true image boot 9.1.3854 home

    and currently my computer is telling me "mbr error 1, please insert floppy to boot", something like that. i have a terrible memory

    Something tells me, either the MBR wasn't imaged at imaging time or it hasn't been restored.

    If you have your XP CD to hand this is easily solved.
