I'm usually pretty good at solving problems but this ones got me stumped. My 10 year old daughter, who lives on Yahoo chat, was trying to down load the 'booter' programs (to kick people out of chat rooms). She for some insane reason, down loaded a program called MBA (Managed Boot Agent ROM image) and installed it. She called me into her room cause she can no longer access the internet over our home lAN. Well this MBA has blocked her computer from our network. So I though I would just Format C: her hard drive through FDISK. I thought wrong. This MBA will not allow my to boot into a floppy disc, or Boot disc CD, or even the WinXP pro disc! The hard drive is a Deskstar 120MB IBM. I though maybe I could use the IBM disc utility to 'zero' the drive but again - that MBA has this hard drive locked. Any ideas how I can wipe this hard drive clean?? I don't have to save anything, just wipe. Thanks for taking the time to read this! Doug G.
