My elderly neighbor who clicks on everything in every spam email he gets has downloaded a ton of viruses onto his 2005 frankenstein desktop PC and asked me to help him fix it. There are no documents or programs that need saved except the Wi-Fi dongle software. He just uses it to browse the internet.
I thought it would be a good idea to just wipe everything to get rid of all the viruses and install Reboot Restore Rx to keep it that way every time he turns it off. Like the computers at my school. :)
Since it's so old I was looking into running puppy linux in his system via usb, but I'm too much of a newbie with that kind of thing and mostly I'm nervous that he wouldn't be able to use it anyway. So sticking with windows xp is best. The disc drive doesn't work, so I can't do a normal reinstall.
What are my options? <3
