I have a Gateway 550GR with windows xp sp2. Windows XP came preloaded with no discs. I would like to reformat and reinstall win xp but am unable to access Full System Recovery when I use F11. It was reformatted once before and it appears there is only 1 large partition. I did find the windows .cab files and would like know if it is possible to create my own discs using these files and how would I do it.
I would appreciate any help as it has a virus I am tired of fighting (it disabled my internet and seems to be taking over the computer). Its time clean it up anyway I already saved anything important.
Please be patient if I am slow to respond... using my daughters computer when I can after work.
