    Hi All,

    I found this site in the panic of what happen to my desktop...
    Anyways my parents were using my computer and as they told me was acting wierd. So they ran spywaredoctor detected a trojan and delete it. But it kept freezing without warning. After about a dozen trys to ride my machine of the trojan the decided on reinstalling windows.

    So They put in all six disks and partitioned the drive to 25% tell it froze now everytime i restarted it and try to install windows it freezes. It always freezes at differnt times and i never can get done. So now i am stuck with a computer with no windows and freezes everytime i try to install. Does anyone want enlighten on dealing with this .... if that is it can be delt with

    Hi, what version of windows are you trying to install?

    Will it still boot into windows?

    For future refrence, most infections can be removed with out formating, the first step is to try and identify the infection then proceed.

    You should always have Antivirus software installed and up to date, A good Firewall and Antispyware program, web based online scans can only do so much and are no substitute.
