i am trying to fix my brothers computer.

The problem is that he has so much spyware/adware etc that its proventing us from formatting the computer.

I am running a virus scan right now as we speak.

We cant allow him on the web becasue it is infected with so much junk.

is there any way that i can get by and abort the program that wont let me format.

nothing was running at the time of the attempt to format.

any suggestions besides throw the computer out are welcom:thumb:
