Hi, I tried doing a recovery on my computer but it didn't work out at all, Right now whenever i start it. It gets a OEM/DSP.exe error and when i click ok I get another pop up saying Fake setup.exe. Reason for doing recovery: I had gotten some viruses and i was unable to get rid of them. If someone could help me it would be really appreciated.

Full error: Windows cannot find "\OEM\bin\watchDSP.exe" make sure you have typed the name correctly..... Etc


Edit :2
OEM error gone 1 error left z.z

" Fake setup call himself instead original "Setup.exe" .- setup abort. (error- setup abort) then the computer restarts. I can't even get into safe mode or anywhere else. I can only access Bios. My operating system works fine.

I have window's xp
Processor type: Intel pentium dual CPU e2160 @ 1.80Hz (64 bit)
dual chanel memory mode.

Hard disk:
Block mode 16 sectors
LBA mode: Supportyed
PIO mode:4
Async DMA: Multiword DMA-2
SMART : Supported

Help would be really appreciated.

I'm getting fake setup error When Window is about to set up to do the partition. I have original xP Disks.

What is the make/model of PC?
What type of recovery did you attempt? System restore?
Sounds like you might still be infected.
Bump?

If this relates to the same aborted attempt to restore the system to factory defaults...system manufacturer and model?

At what point does this error occur?

When you booted to the recovery disk did you delete and receate the partition?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Was reading about this problem here on a different forum, but I was getting a little foggy.

I booted and the recovery went fine. When i restarted the computer again, i started to get fakesetup.exe error. Now if i try to do the recovery again I get the fake error. I think the virus is still in my drive.

Well, it sounds like you did a recovery reinstall, and then maybe you rebooted the pc with the CD still in, and a default setting started up the recovery again. (guessing you aborted after it started again).
Are you trying to start over from scratch? If so, I think you just need to format the disk drive since there are errors and no options with your setup as it is.
Did you try to boot with the CD in again to restart the process?

It will help YOU if you can tell us the make and model of your PC. For example: Dell Optiplex G240.

Yes i'm trying to start from scratch and Yes i tried to boot with the CD in again to restart the process.
Things i've tried so far. I bought a new hard disk and that didn't work out that..( i was trying to reinstall with a window xp 32 bit CD) I still got the error. my computer is a HP pavallion and i bought it 5 years ago. I'll try to check for the full model name when i get home. and i'll post the pictures of error too.

Well if you throw a non-OEM XP disc in there, you will get the option to delete all existing partitions. I would do that , then create one new partition, then power down and go back to your OEM recovery discs. You should have no errors then, since the hard drive would be empty. The OEM XP OS disc should have that option as well.

If you are still having errors after that, I would guess that you hard drive is misconfigured, or bad.

Last time I'm going to ask..... Make and model of your PC. I am just shooting in the dark without that data, as the PC may rely on a hidden recovery partition
in order to use the recovery discs. Are you sure that you are using the correct recovery discs for the PC you are working on?
