    Hi there...I have another thread related to my Dell Inspiron, I think its fried, I dont have any responses, so I'll try to re-do the hard drive somehow.

    This is related to my desktop.

    Upon startup, I get an error message the states: "Required System Software Not Installed. Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 is required to continue. This software is available for free download at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/"

    I know for a fact that the .Net framework 2.0 IS downloaded and installed on this computer, I checked. As a matter of fact, version 4 is installed as well.

    That leads to believe that there must be a virus on this computer. Can one of you fine folks help confirm this?

    I've read the forum stickies and have downloaded HiJackThis and have the other 2 notepad things (DDS and ATTACH) saved to my desktop. I'm trying to be somewhat detailed here, but my technical knowledge is lacking.
