heya guys...

have posted this is another forum but will try here as well

managed to dload something nasty....

im running win xp sp2 and firefox as browser

problem for me is that i have now lost everything except my background

when the prob first started i did get a few pop ups that said about systemerrorfixer if that helps......and 2 of my 3 user accounts got infected immediately......i did manage to get some work done on the 3rd account before i clicked on c drive and then it went blank to....

upon booting up windows loads and gets to the login screen just fine.....when i go to login tho it takes ages to load settings and then i get the userinit.exe message and all i can do is hit ok....it goes on to just load the background nothing else

the only keys that appear to work is the windows and L key so that i cant switch user....try another user and the same thing happens

ive tried to boot the pc in safe mode...and it goes through loads the drivers etc....but then all it does is give me a black screen with nothing else

is there anything i can do?......or do i just need to wipe it and start again?

thanks for any help you can give me

spanky

Hello osospanky,

Welcome back to Bleeping Computer :)

I think it's probably time to start over on this one, especially if it's infected the way you say it is. :thumbsup:
