Well my awesome little windows XP laptop has caught some sort of virus (idk). I tried to fix the .exe registry using a reg file that I was pointed to. Later, my computer kindly informed me that a very important file was missing and was lagging badly. It then asked me to restart it so I did. After the laptop booted up it went into a black screen. I thought this was all part of the process so I left for a bit and came back many hours later only to find that my laptop was still on the same black screen. I later tried to open it up in safe mode. while listing the files only three were listed and then the computer stopped there and I knew it wasn't going to go any further. So now I search for a windows XP disk. I'm not sure if I can do this but a friend of mine is coming with a windows 7 disk sometime this week and I decided that I would at least try. Anyone have suggestions?
