Hello, I just got done removing tons of spyware with OldTimer. I have a problem with my User Account in the control panel section.
When I click on "User Accounts" it goes to a blank screen with a warning prompt that says: Automation server can't create object. Next I click OK, the User Account Page is blank. Thier are forward and backward arrows on top along with the "home Page Button" next to the arrows, but everything below is blank.
OK when I click on any arrow buttons I get anouther warning prompt that says:

'g_Navigator' is null or not an object --It says everything I have typed thier. I click ok and still the page below the "forward & backward arrows" and "homepage button" is blank. This has been going on for awhile now. I have to add someone to the "Users Account" but I can't.

Also when I go to "MSCONFIG" thier isn't a "BOOT.INI" section thier. I like using that "boot.ini" section to boot in safe mode, it is alot easier. My "boot.ini" file is in
C:/windows/pss/boot.ini.backup. Instead of saying boot.ini it says boot.ini.backup. I fixed this problem before but I forget how to do it now.

Thank Alot for your time,

when you get alot of spyware, and then remove it....alot of your xp system files will be corrupt.......alot of incompatibilities, lost files, errors.

I reccomend just a clean reformat if you want to fix it all.



do a search for boot.ini and download the original file and place it there.

Thanks "Techsomething" for the reply, but I really want to avoid totally reformatting my drive. I have alot of inportant things that I dont want erased. Also I dont have the time to save everything on disks. Is thier anything I can do other than reformating. I have to erase an account in the "User Accounts" section. But as I said in my first post "I'm not able to do that. The screen is blank aspect for the forward & backward arrows and the home button. When I press eaither of them a warning prompt comes up. Thanks for the help so far, if you or anyone else thinks of something, reply.

Insert your Win Xp Disk
Reboot Computer
Enter Recovery Console
Type Fix Boot and press enter
Type Fixmbr and press enter
then reboot

That should fix your boot.ini problem

As for your other problems I'm not sure how to fix thoughs my only guess would again be the recovery concole and do a recovery installation. This will reinstall XP over your current filesystem saving your data
