I am really hoping that somebody here can offer me some assistance as I really need access to the info stored on my laptop!!

Tonight I installed Ad aware on my Sony Viao laptop, which all went ok. Ad
aware downloaded the update and carried out a full system scan, and found 99 critical objects, so I highlighted these and continued, it quarentined and then deleted these. Every thing still seemed ok I then restarted the the laptop and it would not boot up, I restarted agian and held F2 but it would not access Bios, I really am at a loss as to what to try next.

I will try and find the recovery disk but am worried this may wipe the hard drive!!!, The PC has service pack 2 installed could this affect anything?

Any advise would be much appriciated!

Thanks in advance!

What exactly is happening? Is it not starting windows at all or does it start windows and then not do anything?
