    What is the exact error?

    What is the name of the virus you have on your PC?

    Update your virus checker to the latest version, reboot your machine and when it is starting back up and says "Verifying DMA Pool Data...." press F8 to get to the boot menu.

    Select Safe Mode from the menu and go into windows, this will start windows in a very basic form, so everything will look a little bit screwed, but dont worry this is normal.

    Now run a full virus scan and it should remove it. If not come back and I/we will help further.

    Hi,
    To get to safe mode, reboot the PC and then start tapping the F8 key repeatedly before the Windows XP logo appears, when done correctly you should see a menu giving you options to start in "Safe mode", "Safe mode with networking"...etc.
