From what I've read, you can use a regular XP boot disk

Thanks Garmanma...
The microsoft site offers xp home or professional. I want to end up with Windows Recovery console. Are you saying that the "Windows XP Fresh Install bootdisk" is all I need?...that I do not have to be specific....?

There's a site where you can download the recovery console. It's been posted here before but I can't find it at the moment and I got some things to do this morning. Hopefully someone else will see this before I get back

I would strongly suggest you use Combofix aided by one of our malware experts in the Security section. I realize there is a backlog and you won't get immediate help, but it is the safest and preferred way to go about things. I would start with Am I Infected and state the problems that you are having and what you have done so far. There may be other options to remedy your problem. If they feel your situation warrants a Combofix or HJT log they will give you the correct procedure on posting one

Not quite sure what you did. I copied and pasted the BC link and it worked, the other one didn't. Usually I click on the "insert link" icon (4th one on the left), copy and paste the web address, click OK, enter whatever text I want, and click OK. That will give you the proper code tags
