I have winXP pro on a dell dimension 8100 machine ..
I should have learned my lesson about downloading software from Morpheus.. but I did'nt and I need your help.
I downloaded some plugins for Cakewalk and about a week later I started noticing Media player, internet explorer and half life were all freezing up when I try and run any one of them.

According to norton, it was a virus, Norton said it was cleaned, so I deleted the infected file..

I backed up some drivers and movies, then re-installed winXP Pro. I still have the same problems..
I even used "fdisk /mbr" to wipe clean the boot record for my re-install

I thought to myself I should be weary of the files I backed up cause they may be infected as well but norton did not find anything on them. When re-loading XP, I noticed some lockups during the install (not bad enough to abort the operation, just small freezes)


so now it's getting to be frustrating.. I ran some memory tests with simmtester and all my mem checked out ok..

any other ideas/suggestions would be appreciated =(

just a question about the repair..

are you talking about "fixboot" from the command prompt after entering the "repair mode" ?

that's the only thing I could find that would re create the boot sector

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
