Cant restore my computer wtf

Well Time Warner came out and installed some wireless program, and he added some adaware bullshit. Instantly after that my computer staarted locking up, then some Trojan virus popped up in my quarantine thru PcCillin. Whatever he installed or did added a shit load of viruses to my computer, and after him fucking with it for a day or so, he gave up and left. At first I couldnt restore my computer but eventualy it took the first restore cd, then said add second cd and continue. Thats as far as I can go now and the computer hasnt worked since. I finaly just bought a new computer but what do I need to do to restore my other one. I have to say that time Warner are some nigger rigging lazy mother fuckers that half ass eveything they do in my house. they placed the wireless stuff in a closet in my hallway, drilled thru the ceiling, I have extension cords here and there. The first time they came out they placed the router I guess its called behind the dresser in my baby's room. fuck Time Warner, they suck Heres a pic of the screen it wont go past

Well...if you want the data, install the hard drive from the 1st PC into the second and copy the data. Then put the hard drive back in the 1st computer and reformat and reinstall windows.

If you dont need any data, just reinstall windows. It is a pain, but at least you know you wont have any viruses.

That makes it look like the OS on that drive is toast, but I can't see it well enough to tell for sure. Most likely the message is something to the effect of Cannot locate Operating System

if you can load off the CD, and it will start the windows install, you can press F2 togo ASR (Automatic System Restore) but you'd have to have done a back up that involved a 3.5" disc

If that doesn't work, you can always continue, and then attempt to "Repair" your windows with the "R" button in the installation.

If that doesn't work... total reinstall.
