Answers :

Possible Virus and Malware
\015\012
\015\012Programs that you should load up and run. The first is MalwareBytes Ant-Malware Tool, another is Avast Anti-Virus 4.8, the third is Threatfire. Install these three and let them perform scans.
\015\012
\015\012Run MalwareBytes first and perform a quick scan, when it finishes, it will ask you to post the results, when it does delete everything it finds.
\015\012Run Avast and install it, when it asks, go ahead and schedule a pre-boot scan of your entire system. This should get rid of most problems….The third program is Threatfire and it scans every web page on the world wide web. Now, you will have to get rid of Norton because that too may be the root of some of these problems just because of the name. You can get the Norton Removal Tool at the Norton support site. Below are the links to the referenced programs. Good Luck…..

I just reinstalled XP Pro SP3 on a Dell OptiPlex GX270 after the hard drive failed. I had ane updated SP3 disc from a newer Dell unit, & it worked fine. However, when I reboot, it requires the CD in the drive to see it & go on & boot up. If I remove the CD & bootup as usual, it hangs at F1 / F2 screen & will not go further without it, it just loops to the same screen. Any ideas here? I have done this before, but this is the first time a PC required a Dell OEM Disc in the drive to boot up normall
