I was advised to reformat my computer which I was fine with, Sadly I lost my own Windows XP disk, a friend of mine let me use his Windows XP home edition disk, i changed my boot sequence to run off the disk first, everything was working like the last time i reformatted but once the setup seemed to finish i got hit with a blue screen, it mentioned i probably have a virus or maleware.
Possible reasons I've personally come up with are
1. I had my internet cable in last time i tried, im going to try doing it again tonight with it unplugged (The virus i have only seems to function with my internet running anyway).
2. The Windows XP Home Edition disk says Upgrade on it but it seemed to function like a normal disk so I'm not sure whether or not I can fully install the OS from this disk
If its because the disk says upgrade on it can anyone direct me where i could buy another XP disk?
Was wondering if maybe there could be other reasons it's not working, I've tried downloading a firewall since it stopped my Zonealarm from working, downloaded a 30 day trial of the new Zonealarm but when i try to start it up its missing a .dll apparently.
If you need a Hijackthis or something just ask.
