I just downloaded the latest Norton Antivirus updates and it requested a re-boot after the install. When the reboot began, the Dell screen flashed (as normal) quickly followed by the "Error Loading Operation System" message. Once that comes up nothing works. I tried turning the pc off, then on and hitting F8 to get to Safe Mode, but it does not work. There are two commands on the Dell screen F2 and F12 - I was able to get to those screens, but they were diagnostics and didn't help.
We run Windows XP. We have a 55 gig hard drive with 14.5 gig free - is it a space issue? The pc has been running slow. For general maintenance, I run CLEANUP several times a week. I run AdAware, Spybot and Norton once a week.
