You will have to format your hard drive before you can install Windows.
Try and backup any data you want to keep before formatting. darroll

Have you tried to remove the virus yet? That would be the first thing to try. I would download the free trial of NOD32, and run that and see what you get. I would run a spyware, and adware scan, to see what else might be on your computer.

If none of that works then I would back up your files, and then do a reinstall. When you go to do that you are going to want to put the windows disk into your drive, then when you start your computer load the boot loader. From there choose the drive that you want to start and follow the directions, it is all pretty easy if you haven't done it before.

Cheers!

Sounds like you need to install the drivers. They can usually be found at the manufacturer's website.
