i can't get my computer to boot. i'm not a pro when it comes to computers but i do have some basic knowledge. this is my problem:
last night my security (avast) warned me of suspicious files or viruses but said that i needed to take no further action. when i later tried to reboot i found the following:
Verifying DMI Pool Data............ Update Success
And that's where it stuck.
I've tried to make a restart disk, but then it says:
The following file is missing or corrupted: DISPLAY.SYS
There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 1
The following file is missing or corrupted: COMMAND.COM
Type the name of the Command Interpreter (e.g., C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM)
help! i'm using xp and don't have a start up disk. i tried to download OTLPE.exe, but when i try to burn it to the cd it stays at 0%.
