the virus i unknowingly downloaded disabled a ton of vital operating system files. i don't have the windows xp disk or the reboot disk that should've come with it. system files are missing, is there anywhere or how can i get them on the web, or another friend that has an xp install disk? all i know from a friend that knows a bit more, is it took them out making it very difficult to do anything. can't load cd rom virus disk i just bought thinking it would help fix, can't repair the already loaded security files i had thru clearwire starts the process, then just shuts off to a blue screen just seconds before it;s complete, or will complete then say click restart to take effect, click that and it goes to the error blu screen. can't use a flash drive to load a damn thing. can't download a damn thing from microsoft sites, cause it's jacked my internet settings and only lets me view what it wants. it'll goto google, and microsoft, but when i click download the link page always says can't display- no connection. i'm very fustrated. tried the system restore, but it won't let me get access to the before this happened files, or it wiped them out too. my other computer is the same as this one, but not infected. on it i used mcafee total protection 2009 then windows live onecare. should i connect the two? if so, what do i do from there, can i transfer or copy the program files, system files, or programs to help fix and run a program to delete this virus and get my computer back to full life? i need some detailed assistance. how can i get my internet to work properly so i can download. already reset the settings, cause it even disabled the java. happy to get that back.
