i'm guessing i have a spyware/malware/adware whatever, my start menu and icons blink forever when i turn on my computer. also when i start my computer a black screen comes up and says "Disk 0..." something, and ihave to press F1 to start the boot, or F2 to go to the blue setup screen.
I have tried everything. I've run all kinds of adware removal programs, antivirus programs, defragged, did disk clean up, deleted recently downloaded programs.
i do not have a windows disk, so i dont want to wipe the hard drive. I also dont want to take it to a computer shop as they charge a lot of money.
I have no idea what else to do. Please help me. You can reach me at email address removed

also, i cannot start system restore. and it does the same thing in safe mode.

Thank you.
Jillian
