I tried to install norton antivirus suite on my eMachine running Windows 7, but received an error (boot.cidox) which directed me to use Norton Power Eraser. After trying to use power eraser, Windows will not boot in any mode. Then a friend tried to fix the problem but he accidentally loaded Winxp recovery (instead of windows 7) on the computer and that didn't work, plus it tries to run xp recovery every time we it start up.

Please, help, I need this computer running as soon as possible.

Thanks.

Could you try this first :

◾Reboot your computer and tap the F10 key until Edit Boot Menu appears
◾You will see something similar to this:

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /MININT <lot of empty space> ]

◾Backspace until "/MININT" is removed, leaving only "/NOEXECUTE=OPTIN"
◾Press Enter to continue booting your computer.


Let me know if it works

Is this a 32 or 64bit system ?

Do you have a USB to copy some programmes to, we can then install the windows 7 RC
