My dad asked me to look at his old laptop to see if I could get it to run a little better, so I am using my netbook to do the communication.
Anyway, either it's a faulty battery or it is the laptop itself that won't let the computer start up all the way. The charger being used may not be for the laptop, and I think he is currently searching for the actual charger, so that may eliminate the start-up problems. I won't be able to run any of the necessary programs (which I've saved to a flash drive) until I can get it to run past the check disk.
A problem I did notice, however, is that when the check disk runs (it runs on each startup) it is unable to fix the errors that are present. I think it mentioned something about Spy Sweeper not being present, maybe a file, but there was a long list of items that popped up again after that, and it does the same thing each time I tried to start it.
I'm going to wait until I get the actual charger for it (even though the charger is for an acer, and that's the type of laptop my dad has) to do anything further, but I just wanted to get this up here so I could see what to do in the meantime.
I will follow the removal guide as soon as I possibly can and will post the logs accordingly.
