i have TOSHIBA EQUIUM L20-197 laptop, windows xp home edition and it got virus 'thinkpoint'.

then it's unable to install windows with neither CD ROM nor flash disk, though I changed each time to boot with CD or F disk in BIOS setup.

'windows set up appears' logo on the blue screen then nothing appeares to continue.

what else I can do for ?

please, please help me

Thank you

remove your HDD and put it on another machine using the same type of HDD.
try to install win98 on the drive. copy both win98 and the type of windows you want to install from a cd onto the drive.
remove the drive and put it on your machine, win98 will boot.
install win98 again from the win98 you copied on the drive so that it will install the cd-rom.
you then run the set up of the windows you want to install from the HDD if the cd-rom is not able to install.
