I have a Win2000Pro system that I think is really infected badly, but can't get it to even start up to try to get my AV program to run...

I do have a fresh, very clean (thanks to Richie here at BC :thumbsup:) WinXP-Pro system that I was going to make a Master/Slave system (XP=Master, 2000P=Slave) just to clean and repair the 2000P problem I'm having, then place the cleaned up 2000P harddrive back in its original system. I have done this before cleaning the XP to perfection, but when running the AV or any other maintenace ware on the infected harddrive, the system crashed and rebooted, even in safe mode.

Should I just take the infected harddrive out and use for skeet practice instead of a clay pigeon?

Thanks for being here...

Can you boot into "Safe Mode" to do your AV scan?

No, I couldn't boot in safe mode. I got into a "Checkdisk loop" and would reboot.
