PLEASE HELP

Appreciate all help and time anyone can give

Some kind of virus has infected my Dell pc running XP

I noticed firefox was acting strange when it would not open any new windows

I turned the pc off to reboot and since then I have been unable to get past the following window

When starting the pc it shows the blue Dell icon and I am able to press either F2 or F12

if I don't press either the Dell logo disapears and a black screen appears with the following writting

Controller Bus#00 device #1F function#02 02 ports, 02 devices

Port-00: Hard Disk, SAMSUNG HD160JJ/P
(This drive is contolled by the RAID BIOS)

Port -01: CDROM, SONY DVD+/- RW AW- Q10s

AHCI BIOS installed

The screen then stalls on this window and the only way of doing anything is by holding down CTRL, ALT, DELETE

This reboots but the same thing happens again!

Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated

Thanks a lot

Paul :)

I have read a few tutorials and I am still unsure where to start, I dont want to completley wipe my pc without recovering a few documents. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

Thanks again for any help given

Paul
