Hi people

I am Marina and I have unusual problem. I picked up some kind of virus, on the desktop were a message something like "VIRUS ALERT". Folders on the desktop like my documents,my computer... were erased. I couldnt get into the system to remove it,not even control panel,nothing. So I did system restore to previous date and I made bigger mess.
Then I tried to reinstall windows on my laptop but it want recognize any cd,then I burned windows instalation on a dvd and tried to boot from dvd but nothing. Problem is that it wont recognize cd but dvd yes.I can still burn things into dvd BUT it wont boot from it .

I am shore that it isnt hardware problem,I think it is due the virus in the system. I cant do anything with my laptop anymore. Now system restore isn`t working either and lots of other features. Please help...


Thanks in forward,
Marina :thumbsup:

In order to be able to boot from a CD the CD-ROM has to be the first device in the boot order, you may need to change this in your BIOS.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
