So I have a grasp on what the problem is thanks to this forum.

I think what I have to do is boot off this disc and then find/destroy a 0kb file with a strange name in windows\system32\drivers.

My problem is that my bricked computer doesn't have a cd drive. My poor Aspire One netbook is too small to have a cd drive. So how do I boot off a cd without a cd drive?

PLEASE help me.

YOu should be able to get out this way.

during the POST part of your Bootup, press and hold down the F8 key. If you see the Windows splash screen then you missed your window of opportunity and will have to retry.

If you get it at the right time, then you will see a Boot menu, and you should be able to choose Normal as one of your options
