    I couldn't get rid of my virus, so I had to do the extreme, which was to run the program Killdisk which erases the partition that you chose and then reinstall XP. It's time consuming but it works and it gives you a clean partition. Good luck with this problem and Happy Modding to ya.

    If your running windows xp, you should be able to hit f8 while your computer boots up. You will come to the boot options window and then scroll up to boot in safe mode.

    This shows windows 200 but it should look the same as xp

    If google turns nothing up on it, I say backup the files you want and reinstall.

    Great to hear your back in business. Sorry that you had to do it the way you did it, but personally I think it's the best way to go to insure that the virus is cleaned out. Congrats to being back.

    Glad to hear you had backup. So many don't have a backup and it sure can be a long drawn out process having to start from scratch.
