I have Vista Internet Security 2010 in my computer. I tried to get rid of it but not being computer savy I don't think I accomplished much! So I saved what I could and attempted to reformat. Only I keep getting an error that says,"This PC is not supported by the System Recovery Discs." However, I have reformatted 4 or 5 times previously using theses discs so that's not true. Could the virus be causing this error to come up?

I'd really appreciate any advice at all.

Thank you.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
