What a palaver. And I have lost loads of time. All because I suspected a computer of mine had a potential virus/trojan.
So as the computer had nothing critical, I decided to erase (almost) everything and start again. I say almost everything as the reinstall software was on the Hard Drive as I have no Win98SE CD.
Took me 3 times before I was happy. First time I didn’t make a clean install folder so everything was still there. Second time my lovely nephew turned off the PC half way through.
Third time it was almost finished and my nephew had to go to bed. All I had left was Internet Explorer 6 to install.
