Hi, okay I'm unfortunately back with more problems to poise on you guys and I really appreciate the past help and this time and any future help...
Now, I was helping my friend set up his dsl connection a couple of days ago, but his computer had 3 years without any kind of maintenance whatsoever, so it was logically full of many adwares, spywares, and what have you... So, I decided to go with a coward solution to solve his problem while I had more time to spare, I downloaded him Mozilla. Then, two days later I went there to do a system maintenance considerign that his computer is fast as twice as mine and was at least thrice slower... So I downloaded system mechanic and did the performance maintenance, up till now everything is perfect. But then I decided to see the start up manager to see all the cr@p that was still there and I proceeded to disable any foreign programs to me... Apparently, I was overconfident in my skill and got a little overexcited checking things because I must have checked something I shouldn't have :S... When I rebooted the PC to see my greatness in motion and was about to think out loud "I'm too cool for school" the pc didn't boot up quite well. It passed the normal windows start up screen (the "please wait while..."), but then it just turned black after that. You could move your mouse since the thing was there but no other programs were running. So, I rebooted again and tried with "Last Known..." but it was the same result, then "Safe Mode" and it was the same result, so I started to panic. And up until now I haven't come up with any ideas to solve the problem, and as such I recur to you, the guys who have helped me in the past, Please help me solving this problem as I am still a little panicked about messing a pc that's not mine..,

Thanks beforehand, and sorry for ranting so much but I do believe the most information given the better solution... Anyways, please respond promptly.

Hi, thanks for paying attention... Now I tried to do that an searched the windows cd of the computer but they didn't have any, the owner of the computer told me that when he bought it at circuit city they told him that "it had everything inside the computer"... I don't know if this is normal but to me it sounds a little weird. I tried makind a bootable floppy in another computer to then boot the one messed up, but when it got to disk #3 it presented some weird problem. Is there any other way to boot windows?
