We have an HP computer running XP service pack 2. Was running Shaw Secure antivirus.
Since it is an HP there is no start up disk, there is the recovery drive that contains the recovery files. Recovery ran under the "no files will be lost but all updates and programs will have to be reinstalled."
Computer has very slow operation, had a look at My Computer and noticed another admin folder. I have no permission to go into my original admin folder, even in safe mode.
The new folder is labelled Admin.your-55e5..... and a bunch of other letters. Can get the exact if needed.
Since the computer ran through Recovery it is running the default norton. It can't find anything.
Any help would be appreciated.
