A friends o/s is ME. He has no anti-virus and has paid the price. He states on start up the screen is black but the icons are visible on his desktop. No matter what he clicks on the screen flickers once then locks up. small screen appears stating 'trojan'. Once he is up and running he WILL get anti-virus software.

What's the best thing for him to do?

A fresh format springs to mind, and change to any os except ME. An AV PLUS firewall are vital.
