I have a sony pcv rs 400 pc with xp. I had a virus called cws.mscofig. This and associated files were scanned and removed by different spyware programs. When I started the computer, Win xp did not start. I tried safe mode, it starts but hangs, nothing on screen. PC has two hard disks, and all programs are on HD to recover. No cd's were provided with PC, but instructions recommended to buy when needed. I have to press f10 to use recover function at start. But all f keys disabled, I can not reinstall the original programs. I have called sony to buy recovery cd's as desribed in their hand book. It is almost impossible to believe but Sony can not sell recovery cd's any more because of a conflict with Microsoft. I am stuck with a computer which does not work, I can not buy program cd I have already paid. Almost a nightmare thanks to Sony and Microsoft. I tried to use one xp cd for other computer to start and install to see if it works. I could not install windows because f keys disabled and I can not accept agreement by pressing f8 key and it stops there. But it goes to recovery console only. I dont know if this would help. I dont know what else can I do? I am considering to remove the hard disk from other computer and install on this one too see. Is it a good idea? I would appreciate any help. Thanks
