missing shortcuts

  vlg 08:52 05 Aug 2004

Im new to the web and computers themselves have changed so much since i did my first course 15yrs ago. I recently had several viruses (56 in 1 day) after a friend downloaded Kazaa for me (which is now removed) but since then alot of changes have been made not by me. Epson enviroment 3 or sumuts is one it always appears when you swith the computer on, which is really annoying and i cannot find it anywhere. My dad gave me the computer and when i look on the tempory internet files it comes up with all his but he hasnt used this for nearly 2 years.
Could someone please tell me what is going on or tell me how to avoid this. Would it be wise to have the computer formatted and updated to XP, im currently on windows ME
thank you

I think it would be better to format it. That way it will be clean. As for XP, thats up to you. If your happy with ME, then re-install ME.

Just make sure if you do format, that you have all the drivers. Back up all the work you have done.
