You may already have a virus/spyware hijack

download the Stinger from here and run it to make sure that A-V-disabling
viruses are not present on your PC
http://vil.mcafeesecurity.com/vil/averttools.asp

- update your virus scanner and run a full system scan of all files.

Reboot to Safe Mode and run CWShredder - to remove variants of the
CoolWebSearch hijacker.
http://www.merijn.org/cwschronicles.html

Use CWShredder, the removal tool:
http://www.intermute.com/products/cwshredder.html
(download it without the accompanying rubbish)

download AdAware SE Personal Edition from www.lavasoftusa.com, install,
update, and run it to remove spyware, adware, and other such nasties from
your system.

DETAILS please, Donna - what was found? where??
What error messages do you get when you try to install/uninstall anything?
what error message do you get when you try to run the Recovery disk??
(EXACT wording on error messages is essential - sometimes it's the only
pointer we get!)

Without SOME detail there is really nothing we can do - what error message
do you get when you try to run the Recovery disk??

Sounds like the BIOS boot order has been changed....

Is this a Dell?
If you press F12 - do you get a menu asking which device you want to boot
from?

Is there an option to press F2 (or Del) during the Boot process (POST)?? -
for Setup?

Hmmm -
This could take a while.
Try the following keys during the POST process
DEL
ESC
F2
CTRL+S
see if any of those get you into the Setup/BIOS screens
If you get there, look for an option to change the boot order, and change it
so that it boots from the CD before the HD.

Or read the initial screen and make a note of the keystroke required to
enter the bios.

ok that worked but now it won't reboot, i have to start with windows 98 then
upgrade to me. but it says, windows files cannot be installed on your hard
disk because the format of drive c is not compatiable with windows 98, then i
run the format then it says setup cannotinstall windows on your computer,
then, an error was detected while formatting your primary hard disk partition

This looks as if you may have a hardware problem with the hard drive :( 

Your Recovery disk is Win 98?? - in which case it's not surprising that you
have to install Win98 and then upgrade!

You need to use a Win98 floppy (www.bootdisk.com - download then run the
program to create one) and use that to fdisk and format the Hard drive. Then
try the Recovery disk again.
Did you have GoBack installed??

If you know the manufacturer of your HD, go to their website, and download
their test utility - run it to see if the problem is hardware.
