- Hi Phil,
You have your lists mixed up Phil. There is the NoteTab & HTML

out these links for the CIH virus. Those people know exactly
what you need to do - CMOS and all with utilities to help clean
it up. You might be able to have your cake and eat it to with
specific step by step instructions.

You asked what CMOS means. Basically, it is an electronic
component (integrated circuit - IC) that is used to store
information (memory) and is powered by a battery so when you turn
your computer off it does not loose the information stored. The
information is basically the setup configuration for your
hardware. Without a CMOS, you have no computer. An infected
CMOS can cause all kinds of problems depending on what is
Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor
<integrated circuit> (CMOS) A semiconductor fabrication
technology using a combination of n- and p-doped semiconductor
material to achieve low power dissipation. Any path through a
gate through which current can flow includes both n and p type
transistors. Only one type is turned on in any stable state so
there is no static power dissipation and current only flows when
a gate switches in order to charge the parasitic capacitance.

Abbreviation of complementary metal oxide semiconductor.
Pronounced see-moss, CMOS is a widely used type of semiconductor.
CMOS semiconductors use both NMOS (negative polarity) and PMOS
(positive polarity) circuits. Since only one of the circuit types
is on at any given time, CMOS chips require less power than chips
using just one type of transistor. This makes them particularly
attractive for use in battery-powered devices, such as portable
computers. Personal computers also contain a small amount of
battery-powered CMOS memory to hold the date, time, and system
Troubleshooting the Motherboard and System Devices
Focuses on problems related to the motherboard and system
devices, including the components of the motherboard, along with
system devices such as the cache and I/O buses, the BIOS and CMOS
memory, system resources, and features such as Plug and Play.

Need a book on it? LOL
