A few weeks ago my computer strarted behaving strangely. I turned it on
one morning and it started up as usual, and showed the desktop screen, but
then seemed to be completely pre-occupied 'doing something'. I could not
get it to open a program, or even move the mouse pointer at all. In fact it
was rendered useless.
I assume a virus is to blame, or some other type of malicious program. My
question is what can I do about it? I have tried re-installing the system
disks, but on switch on it isnt reading or responding to the CD drive.
Is there some sort of software I can use that will help?

Re: anyone help?
It seems that your BIOS configuration skips the CD as a boot device, because
it speeds up the boot sequence. You can change the setting by hitting a
magic button (usually DEL) at proper time during start-up tests. The
details are in the manual of the motherboard.
