Hi everyone, new to this site and looking for some help.
I have been working on a friends computer which had been affected by a number of viruses. He thought some were to do with the xpa anti virus. I tried to do a fresh install of xp but everytime it got to the screen saying install xp or repair installation the computer shutdown. I tried 2 different discs with the same result. Going into windows I found the format function would not operate, either from control panel or C prompt. Kept saying disc was locked. Eventually using another utility I managed to format the disc but I still cannot load xp, keeps shutting down at the same point. I tried re partioning but still no good.
Any ideas please?
