I very nearly put this laptop under the back wheel of the car! I need peoples help its my last option.

A few weeks ago I got a trojan virus, weather this is anything to do with it I dont know, after days of battling to get rid of it i finaly did. One week later I turned off the laptop and rebooted the next day to find unreadable fonts that seem to be in a computer language. Anyway my advise was to re install xp cause the virus may have affected something so i did this and it was fine for a day, until i swithced off and then rebboted again, i knew something was odd when i had to input the password as that strange writing come up again, so i thought o no ere we go again! so for the second time a reinstalled windows put the anti virus on done scans of files before loading them etc. Everything was fine for a few days untill i swithced off and rebooted again and now i got this problem again for the 3rd time. Im not even able to do a system restore as everything is unreadable, wouldnt know if it would work anyway with the system only reinstalled a few days ago.

I have some pictures of the laptop, thank god my mrs has this computer, but i want myn back

I'm thinking the infection is still there.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the
START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own.
If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here

The other option is you have a corrupted video driver or your video chipset is failing.
