Default A little help would be appreciated

I seem to have un-abled my computer.

When I first got my new '75 pc abouty 3 weeks ago I was surprised there were no instruction manual, so I went on the internet explorer ( for the internet internet right?) and before I got to my firstpage a lot of screens started comming up telling me to download (what does that mean?) stuff and telling me repeatedly to click "here".


So after I had done so and whatever wanted to download had downloaded, my computer seems unabled. I keep trying to click the enable button but my mouse jumps to a new position when i try to get it on top of the checkbutton.

This comes up before everything else when I switch on so I have to sort it. Hope you can help, I paid £250 for this computer (specs below, dunno what they mean, like) so I really need to get this problem solved.

Thanks

slight correction, I dol not have xp, that was what i was considering getting but it cost too much (only had about 300 to spend on pc) so i had 95 installed, sorry, hope this doesnt affect much.

That's ok man . It's not necessary. Sounds like u have a lot of spyware/viruses on your computer. Do you have anything to clean that stuff on ur computer? Probably the first thing you should do .

#1: You just got highly hijacked by spyware, after clicking all of those a reinstall is most likely the best thing.

#2: You got completly screwed in your purchase, your PC isnt worth 20$ to be honest, I always toss ones like that.

#3: HL2, well mindsweeper would be laggy on your PC

#4: If this thread is someone's idea of a joke, screw you.

No offence if he really IS an old grandpa.. But, I think it IS someone's idea of a joke. lol

The HL2 thing just sounded way too fishy to me :-\ Don't really know "why" this would be amusing tho :-\..
