I had malaware infections. So I formatted my harddrive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro. The instal went fine. However, after rebooting, when it comes to naming the computer, it hangs.
Changed the hard drive. Still the same problem. How do I know if my motherboard is corrupted. Earlier, I had reported that IE was not working but Mozilla was.
The laptop is 3-4 years old Acer Travelmate 290.
