Default Need to reformat and reinstall

"Mike M" wrote in message

Did you perform a clean install or was it a repair install? If the latter
I wouldn't expect you to have to provide the Win Me CD but if the former
it looks as if the XP upgrade setup took the existing XP installation as
being the qualifying product which is good news all round.

I'm confused too. Surely ladybug couldn't have "upgraded" to XP with a
clean hard drive -- she must have had her old XP remnant on the drive. And
if so, I wonder whether the malware could have somehow traveled along to the
new upgraded XP. Possible? Note: if she performed a "repair" then it's
entirely possible. Or am I out to lunch?
