Hmm, tried updating windows to the newest version??

Or put your anti virus in and restart, so that it can scan the computer for viruses and spyware before it boots Razz

1) http://www.globetechnology.com/servlet/ArticleNews/tech/RTGAM/20020829/gtss2/Technology/techBN/

2) Do you have anti-virus software on the machine while trying to install Mcafee?

3) Windows updates (IE Specifically)

4) Mucked up print spooler.

Windows update is the first fix. Be careful though. Windows update has FUBAR'd more than one compuer. Do only the criticals and be sure to read each desctiption to be the fix applies to and is needed for your situation

with all that problems, probably the best solution is to format and reinstall windows so you can start from a solid base.

Good idea - and remember to check your backups BEFORE you reinstall windows.

formating/reinstalling may be the easier solution but here is what you should do :
restart and press F8 this will start windows in safe mode. Basically this means that only the esential parts of windows will be running. Then when windows has loaded go to start-->run and type msconfig. A small app will appear and you need to go to the start up tab. There you must uncheck all the boxes that look weird and windows doesn`t require. Then hit ok, then choose exit without restart. Now install your antivirus software (mcafee i understand). It should work in safe mode. After installing it you can either scan your computer for viruses in safe mode (but it will take alot longer to complete) or restart your computer to start windows normally and do a scan. Hope this helped

You have a virus, it's very common.
It is called "windows"
I'm afraid you'll have to wipe your hard drive to get rid of it, but it should be safe to backup some of your files first, as this virus dosen't imprint itself onto files (it is too large in file size)

Save eveything and ANYTHING you wish to keep. When in doubt, save it. If possible, have all the latest drivers you will need saved.

Download a boot disk, http://www.bootdisk.com/, as use FDISK to wipe hard drive.

Restart computer with XP install disk in CD. After install, hook up to net (better to have on CD), and get antivirus http://www.avast.com/, and ZoneAlarm, http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/products/trial_zaFamily/trial_zaFamily.jsp?lid=home_freedownloads

Hook up to 'net and get all updates to windows. Get MS anti spyware, http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx

Allow Avast and MS AntiSpyware to update auto, and away you go!

Honestly, I cant solve any of your problems!! But I do have to say this that your computer might be infected with Spyware. So, try system restore and bring your PC back to normal if you do have spyware.
