  coogs 21:48 22 May 2003

as i said my comp hangs when entering xp desktop GUI. I recently hd two viruses with several infectuions of each but i managed to clear them both but now when i start up the hangs at the same point where usually it would load up the desktop it hangs until i end the task iexplore32.exe then it proceeds but this is rather annoying i would be grateful if any one can help me sort this problem.

Thanks in advance

Put your windows CD into the CD ROM and hold the shift key (the one with arrow pointing up, just above the Ctrl key on the left of your keyboard). Holding shift for a few seconds will stop the Windows CD from auto running, but the drive will still spin up to read the disk then spin back down again. Once it has spun down you can release the shift key.

Now click Start/All Programs/Accessories and choose Command Prompt. Type in

sfc /scannow

and hit enter. This will check and replace any damaged system files.
