Well, short version of what is wrong: Whenever I try to load safe made, it'll run down the .sys's and stop on mup.sys, then go no further. I'm using WinXP.
Long story: I been plagued by a few tough to kill trojans and the like when, all of a sudden, during the repairing instructions suggested by another board in this forum, the computer started to develope massive processing lag (ontop of the usual glitches that is probably hardware related). Eventually, about the third safe mode in the instructions, the mup.sys pause occured. I have the WinXP CD and would rather avoid a reformat, but will if it's possible to save personal files (by making backups).
Computer is a handful of years old and was windows 98 until upgraded to XP.
Any help appreciated,
