No internet connection
No devices showing in the Device Manager
All the text is changed to Americana (like text)
The Windows Start word has changed to a Kaufmann like text.
The volume is non-NTFS volume
Invalaid Active X/Com Entries
System restore not working
Cannot access a necessary file "msvcr80.dll"
Windows disk will not allow me to reload Windows
System information, can't collect information
The computer is very slow but the programmes do work
