I have a Celeron laptop which I don't usually use because it is really slow and it doesn't have much memory on its hard disk and RAM. It only has 60 GB HDD and 512 Gb RAM . But there is a Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 installed on it. And it can connect wirelessly to any network. When I open it again, I have installed about a hundred plus updates from Microsoft which includes the service pack 3.
All the updates were successfully updated except for the Microsoft .NET framework. When I try to boot from safe mode to check if I can fix the error, I was continuously tapping F8 key but I can only boot to my normal window. I have run ESET Smart Security 4 to check for any possible virus. But it did not detect any harmful infections. I also run the recovery disk but that didn't help me solve the issue. I was thinking that maybe I am infected with a spyware but why does my anti virus did not detect any threat? I made a series of rebooting and tapping F8 key to boot into safe mode but I have no luck. I was hoping that someone here can send me detailed solutions on how to fix this. Thanks.
