Hi, I just ran Webroot after I deleted a program that caused it to freeze up at one point. I walked away and when I came back. The complete Pc was frozen. So, the only option I was left was to turn it off. When I started it again. I now have crazy dots and dashes going vertically on the Gateway screen when I start up. THEN, when it gets to the windows screen, I see a bunch of dots and dashes. Finally, when it gets to the actual desktop. It looks like its in safe mode with how big everything is. I thought that maybe my monitor settings got changed so I adjusted. However, even though I brought it back, ALL the pictures I have and anything I run is now all boxy. I went into safe mode and ran the antivirus and I got ride of all the viruses that was known to it. However, it still is the same thing now. I was thinking of just wiping the computer completely with the operating system disc. However,I never done this before and I'm afraid if I did this then I would lose windows and I don't have the money buy the new one out. I am running on a Windows vista 32 bit w/ a 8800 G-Force Graphics card. Any ideas on what it might be? Thanks for any help you give me. I am a noob so please be specific with anything you say.
