Wanted to provide an update:
Success! After stuggling with DBAN for hours, gave it up and used Active Killdisk - took 19 hours and ran successfully. DBAN seemed easier but proved to be frustrating since it failed for multiple reasons. Active Killdisk was a piece of cake. Re-installed XP and drivers and have a working computer again. Now I need to get on with anti-virus, internet access etc.
You folks are the best, thank you for the time and patience. Your instructions are clear and
easy to follow and I will no longer be afraid to wipe a drive and start over. It is a hassle but
whatever this machine was infected with was ugly.
