I was on the "Am I Infected" thread with malmare, and you people helped me out. Thanks Buddy and Old F@rt.

Now, I have problems with my ActiveX. We've reverted to SP1 and I can't upgrade to SP2. I've been on Microsoft and the upgrade won't go. I just get a blank screen. We're on AOL and we can't re-install McAfee. We can't get Windows Media player to work either. I think this has to do with the ActiveX being messed up.

Any suggestions?

Hi tallship,

There is some good information about installing Service Pack 2 in Windows XP SP2 Solution Center.

See how your programs respond after a successful install of SP2.

Have you tried a repair of your SP1 installation? This may fix the issues that are preventing you from fixing things (malware can really mess up your system - so the removal is only part of the cure, the other part is fixing the damage that it did to Windows). Here's a link on how to do a repair install (it'll leave your programs and documents intact): http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

It won't download. I just get a white screen.

Thanks.

If the repair install works for you - immediately try and install SP2 and visit the Windows Update site for all available updates. You'll need them to be protected from exploits on the web.
