technically giving you an XP cd, you will need a serial number and by giving you the serial number it would be illegal lol since thats what you are buying.

lol, what kind of computer is it?
dell. :(
I bought it used on thursday, and that night got a virus.
wow...:lame:
have had it ever since.
norton, ad-aware, spybot search and destroy, and cc cleaner has yet to fix the problem.
reformatting might be my only choice, but without a windows cd I'm pretty much SOL.

I dunno if Desktops are different from laptops but look for a white sticker that says "Tag: xxxxxxxxxxxx" a couple of number with letters
let me know if you find something like that
or do you have the recovery disc
Theres no white sticker other than the windows product key...ect...that comes on every computer.

if I had a recovery disk, I would have never made this thread :wiggle:

i know that works but with newer computers from what I read one time
other than that i think u have to call dell but its just better to chat with someone from dell and order your CD

yes, I can log on, and I'm pretty sure I got rid of it, but some of the symptoms are still there, which can probably be easily fixed with a little bit of registry editing.
No more warning from norton, so thats good :X

I downloaded MS's malware removal tool, and that seemed to fix the problem.
We'll see.

I don't understand why it would be illegal so long as he uses the product key that's on his computer?

By the way, I have an extra CD I could just give you. It doesn't come with a Serial number but I have a program that can lift the serial off of your existing Windows XP install. That way you are still legit.

PM if you want some help.
