Re: Newest member here! Why do I get gobblegoop in the pre-windows screen?
well, this sounds like a virus...still hidden in the registry somewhere. when you installed the new hhd, and cloned everything back on there, did you go to Microsoft & do all the critical updates....
when ever you do a fresh install of and OS , you must then go imediately to MicroSoft & get all the critical updates.
this usually takes care of the vulnerbilities in the Os, but it also matters what anti-virus your running, cuz not every anti-virus will stop every virus out their.
but, if all the virus definitions are up to-date ....then you have a good chance to keep out the junk that sneaks in .
spyware is goog at doing this, unless you fight back, and block em out.
