Hi,
After much work in the Malware removal forum, the conclusion was that an OS reinstall would be best due to my circumstances. So, I was posting this to elicit any tips/suggestions on the process. I have never performed a reinstall of the OS, but I have read and received the basic info on how to do it. I have the Windows XP Home recovery discs, but I was hoping that other Toshiba Satellite Laptop users who have done a system reinstall could tell me any insider info I need to know before I begin.

So, if you could please outline the steps to follow to do the reinstall I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

FYI, I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop w/ Windows XP Home. The model is a 2410-S206. I believe the operating system has been running since 2/8/2003.

Hey look, buddy, I'm an Engineer. That means I solve problems. Not problems like 'what is beauty?', because that would fall within the purview of your conundrums of philosophy. I solve practical problems.
