Morning,

I have been having some trouble with my computer recently. I had a problem with some malware, which I bypassed by using SpyBot and then a system restore. Recently though my computer will not start. I have tried most boot options (Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration) and nothing works. But every now and then, it does start. I don't know what to do. I was going to take it in to a computer repair shop in town, but then it was working fine- then today I restarted it and it took me 6 or so tries to get it running again.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

What OS? If Windows 7/Vista, you could put in OS disc and have it attempt Repair. If XP, you could try a Repair Install from the OS disc, however please do not do this unless you are experienced with it.

^ Given that he experienced 'problems' previously, I would suggest a CLEAN INSTALL of Windows, using the OS Disc.

Nothing like a fresh start. :huh:

I have Windows 7 (that is what section this post was under right?). I upgraded from Windows XP. If I remember correctly, I downloaded the files to upgrade and did not receive any disc. Unfortunately right now, I cannot remember exactly what I did to upgrade...

*EDIT*

I found what file I need... well, I found the name of it that is. I downloaded it and created a DVD, which I cannot find of course. Is there a way to re-download the .iso file? The link that I had expired 30 days after it was created and I cannot find anything about re-downloading it on their web page.
