My neighbor's computer won't start in safe mode, has a nasty virus (smitfraud), has had 3 years of her children installing and removing programs....to top it off, during her last move, she lost all the discs and documentation with this machine.
It is a Gateway W730 laptop. It had (has) XP multimedia installed. She went and bought a full version of XP Pro and asked me to help her.

Any hints, helps.....anything.........Bueller????

Hi there,

We have a tutorial for this. The idea of the tutorial is reformat and install Windows, with instructions on backing up data etc... Just skip the bits you don't need and go for it!
