I was infected by the Anti-virus gold trojan and now my laptop won't boot up when I hit the power button. It is a Dell Latitude running windows 98. Anyone able to help? :
Thanks.

Default Re: Computer won't boot

If your PC will not boot at all, it will be rather tuff to help you. Does it power up at all? Can you boot from a floppy disk or from Win98 CD? If you can boot to a command prompt using a boot floppy perhaps you can find where the Anti-Virus gold is and delete it.
