Everything is fine except for when I install something that

requires me to restart. When I restart the WindowsME splash

screen comes up, but then it switches to a DOS mode and it says

stuff like "could not update %1 %2" and "1%-2%". I tried system

restoration, but it didnt seem to work. Most of all it's affecting

how I update my virus scan definitions and I'm 3 behind

I really don't feel like having the computer guy to come and fix it

again. So if you know or think you could help, just do so and I'll

love you for ever.
