    Hello, I hope someone can help!?
    I have been browsing the forum but can't find anything that helps.

    My boyfriend got a virus, all websites were being re-directed and loads of pop ups.
    Now I can't recover it, getting an error saying:

    STOP: c0000137 I/O permissions could not be changed.

    It's an Advent 4212 netbook (sorry for any typos, keyboard is far too small!) running windows XP (although since the virus the desktop now looks like windows 98?)

    Hope there's enough info for someone to help!

    Thanks for looking and thanks for any help in advance!
