need computer help

too tired to look up how windows me works.

I installed an antivirus, and removed it. So what it did was add system files, which needs the computer to reboot. When i reboot, you get the windows screen and pressing esc, you can see "updating system files" or something close to that. But the problem is the antivirus is stuck in a loop with the updating it says "replacing file %1 with file %2 but file %1 cant be found for file %2"

And that message is stuck in a complete loop. Where can i edit the statement to remove that. I tried looking at autoexec.bat and config, but it doesn't have anything related to that. And putting it into safemode doesn't work. Same thing happens.

Is this a registry "startup" issue or can i find like an win.ini file to edit in dos?

i dont have a win me cd because im using someone elses puter

Autoexec.bat or config.sys or win.ini..... or else find someone with a bootable CD you can re-install from

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

I got it fixed, somewhat. Now windows doesn't work right. Then after that, the computer doesn't recognize hard drives. So im using my old computer.
