I have another topic open right now regarding this same computer. Yesterday's Avast anti-virus scan on the XP Pro OS never completed and the system shut down adn kept rebooting itself into XP all night long. This morning I opened the Win2k OS without a problem and I have run the Malwarebytes anti-malware program in there and found 63 infections. Most of them were Trojan names. I saw one that had the rootlit word in it. I have a copy of that report if anyone is interested. My concern is this: Do these two OS share the exact same bugs or do they act seperately?
I do not know much at all about computers and I ask this questions because whenever I am in either OS and I execute a defrag, both OS have the exact same disk drives on them. There is a C: E: and F: to defrag and clean up. How can I tell if they share all components or am I asking the wrong question here. Can the Win2K OS do the job of cleaning up this computer or do I have to clean up btoh OS on it in order to continue? For now, no one has answered my post regarding the sequential order i should use to begin cleanup of the computer. Do you start with anti-virus cleaning and then malware cleaning and then spyware? Now that I'm not able to get into the XP Pro OS then can I get all bugs out utilizing the good OS?
