kay...I did my first reformatting of my hard drive last night. And I'm not sure if I did it right.
I used an oem windows xp cd to boot and followed instructions where it got to the point where windows was reinstalled. However there was one point where about 8mb were unpartitioned and I don' t know what I did to it. But the majority of the 76gb hardrive I selected 'd' to delete then 'c' to create partition....whatever that means. Then I think i hit 'enter' and it begat formating...it took about 30mins. Everything was erased except the errors.
so anyhoo...I reinstalled drivers, updated windows, etc. And as I was installing things I was still getting the errors, and my computer would constantly reset itself.
After I installed norton AV corp ed. It foud six viruses, it took a while to quarantine one of them which was the w32irc.bot virus.
these are the a sample of errors I get after windows restarts:
please guys...I need some serious help here, did I do something wrong with the format? Is there another source for these errors? what should I do? suggestions, comments, step by step guide would be appreciated.
