My computer has had a major trojan invasion - which after many painful hours, I think I've managed to get rid of. The problem is now - I'm trying to repair all the damage it has done and want to do two things.
Firstly I want to run a thorough Scandisk whilst in Safe Mode
and Secondly I'd like to use the maufacturer's boot disk to completly reinstall the Windows operating system
My problems are
1. It won't let me start in Safe Mode - every time I have the screen that allows me the option to either start in a Normal Way / Dos Way / Safe Mode Way and so on - the only option that I can choose is to start in the Normal Fashion. This obviously becomes an issue when Scan Disk won't work because there are too many programs working in the background.
2. My boot up disk doesn't work at all. What should happen is that I place the CD in the drive and on the next startup it preloads options to replace the Operating System and so on.
I know that this is a long message but I am at the end of my tether! Any help would be greatfully accepted.
I'm running Windows ME with 512mb Ram and 100mhz AMD Athlon Processor
