:) Help! My e-machine t6524 computer was so infected that I decided to restore the computer from the emachine xp media center recovery disk. Inadvertently, the computer was accidently turned off and cd ejected while recovering. When I restarted the computer to redo over, the computer started to do the recovery, but it couldn't continue because it said that a file could not be recovered! The computer starts up saying "preparing system recovery option", then "powered by PC angel system recovery", then "please wait". It then says "system restore, system restore environment is incomplete, system restore installs the environment, then it says completing recovery partition. It starts transferring files from i386oem, c:\386oem\m? . Again, my monitor screen display is very wavy due to being infected that I could not read the file name. It says that the file cannot be recovered.

Is there a genius techie out there who could help me? I am so frustrated with this computer!

Ok, first off - Your monitor was not infected. It was the hard drive that was infected. If your monitor is giving you issues, I would say that your monitor is dying.

I'm not familiar with that particular recovery system...Is there any way to skip the file?

Thanks for responding. It won't let me. It asks to retry or abort.

Also, the monitor seems fine and clear when it first starts up with " no signal" and is very readable until the computer starts.
