Can you help me, i cant log on to pc and someone told me to go on to

which said

SYMPTOM



After removing wsaupdater.exe from BlazeFind using Ad-aware 6 Build 181 and reference file 01R314 02.06.2004 or 01R320 19.06.2004, the ability to log on to the system may be compromised.


CAUSE



This file edits an area of the registry, and Ad-aware 6 Build 181 is unable to correct this registry change. The registry item changed is

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Value: Userinit

Data: %system32%\wsaupdater.exe

%system32% represents the path to the System32 folder. For example, if the path is C:\Windows\System32, then the data would be

C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe

Instead of wsaupdater.exe, the data should contain userinit.exe,. Using the example above, the data would be

C:\Windows\System32\userinit.exe,


and i remember runing ad-aware the day before the incident,

the site tells me to put Windows XP Professional Utility: Setup Disks for Floppy Boot Install on a disk and run it on my pc, the only problem is it says i need a 1.44mb (which i used) but it tells me my disk is too small and when I click properties, it says my disk is a 1.38mb

Are you useing unformatted floppies and letting XP format them by any chance.
If you are for some reason the formatting takes up more space than the formatting of a pre formatted floppy.

I unfortuneately have about 100 of those totally blank floppys and have tried to copy apps that say they are supposed to fit on a floppy but wont once they are formatted by xp.

Try useing a preformatted floppy.
