I Have A copy of win ME,XP and 98SE.
But, I Cant Use Xp... when i install xp, everything looks good. then, when im used to using xp... i get a virus from somwhere and my computer wont boot. my motherboard beeps twice (like normal) but then after i here the beeps my PC reboots. i have 3 pcs in the house, all networked up... and no other pc gets this virus, or, i dont think its possibble... but it might be a incompatiblity with my pc and xp. why is this happening? ive formated, put win-me on my pc, installed xp... and the same thing happenns. also, once it seemed to happen on xp, when i was getting microsoft automatic updates... i rebooted and then the same thing happened.

What is happening?

Well I'm not sure why you posted in this forum if you think the problem is with XP. Also, "two" beeps on a boot up is not really normal, one is for most older motherboards. Do you know the BIOS type that is installed -- eg. phoenix/award or AMI?

Have you run a full antivirus scan on the XP install? How about providing a copy/paste of a HijackThis Scanlog following directions below. I'll move this to the "Security" forum since you think it is a "viral" problem.

I have XP and 98SE on a two computer home network. XP has to be the administrator in my network. Check your network config as part of your troubleshooting.
