pintpointfive welcome to the forums,

Firstly

The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx
Apply the update, reboot,


Next,

Tried installing SP1a. Crashed my PC during installation. Would go through boot sequence and show manufacturer's logo but would just abort startup and shut off. I reinstalled windows and ran AdAware. Reinstalling Windows should have reset the registry keys (right?) and I haven't been finding anything I don't like. Advise please :tazz:
