help, i have a dell dimension 4400 xp and i must have some virus

in windows it will work slowly for a few minutes but then all my icons disappear off of desk top, all running programs are gone and i do not have access to the task bar ............... all i can do is restart.

when i start the computer it only goes to reboot

it seems that it cannot load or locate the drive

i tried hitting f8 f3 for safe mode and used chkdsk, at first it said drive have 1 or more errors on it, but after i finally got it to restart, it just does it again

running chkdsk i somehow got to a blue screen that indicated the follow:



technical info
0x00000050 (0xFC02625C, 0x00000000, 0xFBFF21B8, 0x00000000)

SPCDCON.SYS - Address FBFF21B8 base at FBFF0000, datestamp 3b7d8507

hoping someone can help me identify this virus and then hoping to fine something to eliminate it.

also while i was able to get explorer to work for a bit, to no good end some popup came up that said wuauclt.exe would not work and another that read cannot be "written"

help please, manny
