I’m having a similar problem as woody-
I installed Verizon security suite yesterday and did not remove the MacAfee software security as I should have- (had no clue that had to be done) I just let it install and walked away. Came back and it asked me to restart the computer because the scan was successful.
Well the computer never started again- it froze and froze no matter what I did, safe mode etc…, and various ways-
Tried to repair by having an xp pro cd boot up,
I get to the part where it asks about the admin password and keeps stating its invalid-
The password I use is the same one I used to log on when the computer started in the past so I thought that was the admin password- is there another one?
When I try to repair after the xp pro boot up asks to install xp and then I try to look for the prior installation of windows’ xp home in the c drive- it does not show up-
Does that mean it’s totally corrupted? I am so pissed off at Verizon- they offer no help on this-
