when i am booting xp I am getting white blocks at the bottom of the screen and then a solid white line overwriting them as if a program is or script is running/loading? I hace installed this os many mnay time sa nd still use the same cd. Never before... the thing is I sinstalled a fresh copy of xp on ttwo vry similar machines this morning then went out. when I came back both machine had exactlt the same symtoms,...although one "loads" the bars quicker because it is a fatser machine. Once the solid white line has loaded all the white blocks then teh system seeems to bboot normally...
I sit possible to place a script or piece of malicious software in my RAM or somewhere else that no matter how nmany time I reinstalled the OS the script or mailicious software would still be there and be able to execute pre-boot?
I have a few problems with some highly technical people who probably have ilegal access to my flat so I have good reason to be mindful.
