I frankly have no one to turn to! My desktop is running on XP and is heavily infested with malware/spyware to the point of running slowly, not being able to open certain folders/files, consistently re-starting itself, and Windows XP changing itself to classic Windows.
I fortunately backed up everything on an external hard drive, so I'm ready to wipe everything out and install Windows Vista.
However, whenever I restart with the Vista cd, my computer doesn't read it. I've re-checked my BIOS (CD-Rom being the first to boot) yet the Vista cd just isn't running/being read. (I also don't have the Windows XP installation/restore cd)
Could the Vista cd be bad? Or better yet, is there any way I can completely wipe everything out, meaning start all over from scratch when I first put my computer together? I have the installation cds for my motherboard, video card, etc...
I'm frustrated to the point of just packed away the SOB in the basement...
Thanks for checking out my problem!
