Hey guys,

I just wanna say first off (not a butt-kissing thing) that you guys are really cool for having this forum just to help people with computer problems. Anyway, here's my problem:

I had been using my computer with no problems, but downloaded something that caused my McAfee to stop scanning for viruses. I couldn't turn the automatic virus protection back on at all, so I went to uninstall McAfee and reinstall it. When I did that, my computer went haywire and stopped booting up. It will display the background picture in Windows, but no icons or anything. I can get to the Task Manager, but that's it.

I tried to boot in safe mode and use the %sytemroot% code stuff, but I think that I did something wrong because I believe that I deleted the wininett.dll file. I don't know what to do. I would just buy a new hard drive , but I really want all my pictures and music.

I know that I have the Alemod virus because I did get McAfee to scan a couple of times and it found that virus, but it said that it couldn't clean, delete or quarantine it. Right now I am using my work computer to communicate, so I may not be very quick on my replies.

Please help me if you can!!
