Virus Problem, Please Help. I am running on a fresh install of Windows XP and all the drivers. I think JMPC is probably right about the hard drive but I have researched this issue and there may be other options so please post back if you would like more help with this problem. At this time I chose to wipe the hard drive clean. After doing all this I put the battery back in, attached the power cord and started the laptop up.
