So, I let someone use my computer for a while. Now, when I try to start it up it open a screen about an FBI and security violation for some pornography reasons - obviously some type of virus. The virus will not allow me to start up in Safe Mode, or access the task manager. Since I don't have any important files on this computer, I would like to just wipe everything out, including the virus of course, but I cannot even get to a DOS prompt to issue a format! command. Is there a way a can 'bypass' the startup somehow and wipe out everything?
Thanks for any help.
