Actually, that's not what it sounds like at all. If the OP can't get
into his BIOS setup, that has nothing to do with Windows. He's having
general hardware failure. We have no way of knowing how Ogrish "knew"
he had spyware - he might have had malware and/or he might have been
having lockups because of failing hardware.

To the OP: please clarify when your machine locks up - I read "press F1
to enter setup" as meaning when your computer starts and the setup
referred to as being entering the BIOS setup. If this is incorrect,
then please post back with a better description of what is happening.

Based on the original post - and certainly not meaning to hurt your
feelings - I strongly suggest you take the machine to a computer
professional (not your local equivalent of BigStoreUSA) for diagnosis
and fixing. Or if the computer is still under warranty from an OEM,
contact their tech support.
