I am running XP5.1 SP2 and just went through a very thorough and helpful process to remove all my malware & viruses ( see post malare post ). I have been told that I am free of malware, but have this interesting problem. When I reboot or start up the computer - as it is running through the startup process - it stops on "Boot from CD/DVD" then underneath that is a bunch of asci characters. I have to hit return for it to continue the boot. If I do not hit return, it will just sit there. This happens every time I reboot or startup my machine. I do not know what is causing this - any suggestions?
