i'll see what i can do. ..
you cannot format and still keep your windows installation. formatting means you delete everything and start over. i suggest putting everything you want in your d drive and format c. then install windows on the c drive again. the old looking windows can be due to having visual effects turned off. it actually helps out your performance a bit. to change it try right clicking on my computer-click the advanced tab at the top-then click performance settings. check to see if the very bottom item is checked. it's called 'use visual styles on windows and buttons.' as for spyware, thats easy to get rid of. either uninstall the game and anything else that came with it or get spybot and adaware. install and run spybot, get updates, scan your pc, then clean it all up. do the same with adaware. you can get them free at their respective websites. i dont know why it wont let you burn things. which burning software do you use?
i hope i was of some asistance.
