serious error ocurring

  DMAN 15:44 11 Aug 2005

Some really strange thing is happening with this pc.

When it starts up I get a 20 or so window boxes (win XP) with lots of different characters written saying absolute rubbish with a sentence at the bottem saying an invalide integer.

I can't access cd's or open set up programs as this box comes up. I don't know what it means cause you can't understasnd anything in it.

Hope people understand this!

Also messenger service keeps popping up with reg error-3328.

Don't know what to do.

PC is running Win Xp 2.3 Ghz intel, 80GB 256MB ram.

Help please!

Have you tried running the routine virus, spyware, adware, etc.. scans?

well it's not my computer, just trying to fix it for someone.

THey don't have any antivirus or spyware so i brought some around on a disc but can't acess it. I've tried downloading but can't open any setup programs.

Have you got the WinXP installation disk handy? as you will need it for this:

Start->Run and type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotation marks and note the space before the /)

When prompt to do so, insert the installation disk and wait.
