    i think I got a nasty virus on my computer which was slowing it down really bad. I talked with someone who told me to try and wipe my hard drive with kill disk and when I try to install windows xp home, or pro I get these messages when I hit install or the up arrow key to try and partian an area. I got this message before I did the wipe too when I was trying to just format my hard drive or just boot from the xp disk and reinstall xp. I got some different variations of these messages but I always get them.

    stop: 0x0000050 (0xbf2941a8, 0x00000000,0xf84c6f3e, 0x00000002)

    setupdd.sys - address f84c6f3e base at f84a200000, datestamp 3d6dd67f.

    if someone can help great, I am hoping I have not completely destroyed my computer.

    thank you
