I have come to a fork in the road, any help would be greatly appreciated.
After nearly a month of varied headaches from unresolved malware/spyware/trojans. I used every method to remove but still had sparatic problems the most problematic was a system error C000021A The windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status f OX 00000005 (OX00000000 Ox00000000)
I backupd up my fiels and did an XP install on my F :(secondary) drive. I made sure it booted and then formatted my C :Drive. I couldn't get it to boot from the existing drive. So I used a WIN 98 boot disc and tried installing from CD to the newly formatted drive...No luck... after several restarts ater freezin on installing set up files, I was able to start the setup but then got a message the EULA file can not be found the installation can not continue. I could not find any way around this message. I then tried again to boot from the now D :drive (F:) Now I got a message NTLR missing fixed that by copying them from the CD drive. Still no luck.
I then tried changing the C drive to the slave and making the F drive the master. That didn't change the way the system reconginized the drives. I even disconnected the C drive and no luck.
Anyone with a suggestion I am all ears..........
At this point all I can do is boot to DOS prompts and the Setup Utility.
Frustrated and going to nap for now.
Thanks In Advance for any assistance.
