I have a friends laptop here and he has some virus on it that is really messing things up. He's a real Neanderthal when it comes to computers.
I've tried to find the answer on line. I've tried to use software programs but they aren't helping completely, as a matter of fact they seem to shut down half way through the process of analyzing the situation. If I run the computer long enough the whole computer freezes up.
The initial bug was the Windows antivirus bug. I'm sure that there are a couple more on there.
I can only run CMD.exe in Safe Mode. When it starts up I get to rundll errors for tapi.nfo.
It is running XP Home edition. What can I do to fix this poor machine? I have several days of attempting to do this alone.
Thank you so much for any help.
