Hi, I hope someone can help me here.
I don't have a wide range of knowledge of computers I just type on them and do know how to install software just to give you some indication as to my computer know how.

I have a compaq 5410US computer running XP at home edition. Problem #1. I think I deleted an important operating file because right before, I was cleaning up my files sending things to the recycle bin. I'm almost sure I clicked on something and it said important operating file,and asked me if I was sure I wanted to delete this file. You guessed it I said yes.

Problem #2
Also, I was cleaning up my desk top and I had spyhunter software I thought was installed . It wasn't. I clicked on that by mistake and it installed. It asked if I wanted to restart my computer and I said yes. I restarted my computer and I have been stuck on the compaq logo screen ever sense.

I'm really not sure but, here is my problem. I can get to the compaq red logo and no further. In the right hand lower corner I get this message: F10Setup. The computer shuts down and restarts repeately, but always comes back to the red compaq logo screen. I tried going into bios but, to know avail. I also tried pressing F10 hoping that by some miracle it would start to work.
I tried using the restore CD and that won't work either.


Any help would be appreciated, any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808

Can you still go to DOS Prompt or Safe Mode? By pressing continuously the F8 key just before it boots up.
