my kids computer is all wacked...i found alot of virus and malware and removed them.. then all these errors started coming up on startup, like "tapi.nfo" or some b.s. ...in my research one of the forums said that when the viruses were removed it might leave some startup files behind, so run AUTORUNS to generate a list.......but in the meantime i was trying to get to get to system restore.....other forums suggested,

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/srpolicy.htm

so i did that and now system restore cannot be found.....so what to do..i don't know...was thinging of reinsatlling windows

The first thing that I would suggest...is to ensure that the system is clean.

Users who get infected seem to often think that they have removed all malware...only it is not so.

The personnel at the Am I Infected forum here...can help you ascertain if you are still infected.

I will suggest that your thread be moved to what may be the appropriate forum.
