Hi,
Im new to this site and in a right pickle. My computer seemed to get a virus and after trying everything else I attempted to restore my computer. This seemed to go ok but now i cannot log onto my computer. all i get is the windows screen (XP) and it tell me I have to activate my windows which obviously I cant as I cant get into the computer. I have tried to go in of safe mode but this doesnt work either. I do not have the windows cd as it was already stored on the computer and the computer company has gone bust.
Please help
Regards
Copo:(:(

You may need to purchase a new copy of windows and install that. you will need to reinstall your drivers so that you can run your computer properly. you mentioned that your computer company went bust but other 3rd party websites often store technical data about PC's. if you locate your computer make/model and model# google those to find your drivers.
