To whoever can help me!!

My computer recently got infected with Windows Pro Police and then Total Security. After getting frustrated with both these petty viruses and trying everything online I decided to wipe everything clean and start over. My computer runs Windows XP Media Edition x64, I installed the HP recovery discs that came with the computer. After they had finished installing my computer turned off so the next thing to do, I turned it on and a low resolution blue screen came up with a cursor. After numerous times turning off and on my computer I received this message "INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 14. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit". Anything to help would be great, thanks so much

THESE ARE THE DISCS I HAVE - System Recovery DVD, Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, Installing this disc will return your computer's hard disk drive to its original software configuration. To begin, insert the disc blah blah blah....It came with 2 discs

If I remember correctly, the DV2000 series is a laptop and is 3 or 4 years old.

If you are receiving this error message after running the HP Recovery DVD and Operating System Disks, I would recommend testing your hard drive for physical errors. It is possible that coincidently your hard drive decided to give up at the time of reinstallation.

Hope this helps,
