windows Me crashed by bearware

Trying to help a friend he has Windows Me but not windows cd. downloaded some sort of music program called bearware or similar name. pc slowed right down to a crawl, he tried a restart but computer will not now start.

is there a way to get to safe mode or system restore using a boot disk?

or any other tips other than buying a windows cd and doing a clean install.

can you access the system by the floppy boot disk?
If so you may be able to go to C drive and locate the windows exe file (possibly win.exe or somthing similar)and re-start your system from there, otherwise it is a case of hunting round (try click here for a win ME Cd.

It sounds as if he has a major Trogan /Virus infection, which will mean a complete format & re-build.
