Hi again....

Try this caron...With the floppy in the drive, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to reboot. When you get to the options screen, press F5 to get the A prompt.

I DON'T KNOW IF I'M IN A PANIC OR GOING TO CRY I FEEL ALL HOT-BUT IF IT DOES NOT WORK IHAVE LEARNED MY LESSON WITH REGARD TO THE IMPORTANCE OF ANTIVIRUS STUFF

THATS WHY I WAS SO SCARED TO DISABKLE IT EVEN FOR A MOMENT- BECAUSE I THINK THAT IS HOW IT HAPPENED IREAD SOMEWHERE THAT THE POTENTIAL VIRUS CAN BE WAITING AT A POST FOR ENTRY A THE PRECISE MOMENT I DON'T REALLY KNOW

ok take a couple of Deep breaths and calm down.
If it won't start from the floppy drive make sure you are at the c:>
and type in what I show you.
C:>rename autoexec.bat autoexec.bak eneter

c:>rename config.sys config.bak enter

CTRL ALT DEL
will it boot to windows now?
