Hello Essexboy:

Thank you for your valuable comments.  Does it matter whether I download a fresh copy of avast and the xp SP3 from the infected computer? Or, should I go to a friend's house and download it there?  When you download the file do you have the option to save it to a cd?

Thanks again.

Hello Again:

So I tried hitting F10 on the Compaq and here is the message about System Recovery that was displayed:

"The system recovery program, in this normal default mode of operations, recovers applications, drivers and the operating system, to their factory shipped condition.  Accordingly, after system recovery finishes, you need to reinstall and reconfigure any application that you installed youself (including upgrades or revisions to the factory-shipped version of any application). 

However, the system recovery in this normal default mode of operation, will not delete any Data Files that you created".

Is this was I need to do to reformat the computer and get rid of all the viruses? I was reading that there is a distinction between reinstalling and reformatting and that reinstalling does not removethe viruses from your hard drives.  Could you please advise?  There is an option for advanced settings, but I am not sure what this does.

Thanks

Go to the advanced settings and there should be an option for destructive recovery - reset to factory defaults

Download Avast from a clean computer and save to either CD or USB
