I've built my first pc, installed xp and all went well. but now i'm stuck. I went to download free version of avg antivirus. run it and found dllhost.exe infected with a worm. contacted microsoft who said to reinstall os. done so, went to redownload avg and now i have that worm plus more. also the pc keeps beeping evry now and then. one just now, then it crushes. anyone have a clue of what's going on? i've reinstalled xp 6 times already. i had enough!!!
please help...

It sounds as though you may have been infected by the Blaster worm virus while you were online, and you'll need to download a patch from the Microsoft Windows Update page.

make sure you disable the xp firewall before you install another.
