im sry im fairly new the forum, but lets get started lol. i recently got a virus that causes my computer to log me out of windows immediately as i click on my username to log in. ie, the splash screen loads and i can click on a username and if need be enter the password but as soon as i hit enter, i get logged out really fast, like my desktop doesnt even load. I tried to boot in safe mode but to no avail. So, i got my Windows XP sp3 cd and did repair, however it didnt seem to work. i believe virus changes the registry values to a loop. How can i change the values in the registry if my computer doesnt boot?


EDIT: I guess no one can help lol.

First - patience. We are all volunteers here and the load is pretty large. Helpers usually deal with threads they are currently working before starting on a new one.

Next - Remove the reference in your signature or I will have it removed for you. You will find that BleepingComputer is a friendly forum and reminders like that aren't necessary.

Since you have significant booting problems, even after a repair install, I recommend moving to the HJT forum. Since you cannot post any logs, you need to specify that at the beginning of your new topic.

Please follow this guide from step (6). Post a HJT log to the HJT forum and a Team member will be along to help you as soon as possible. You may wish to post a link back to this topic to see what was discussed thus far.

If you need any help with the guide, please let me know.

Use this link to read what a repair disk means, it's done by booting to the cd, is that what you did?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

ma bad rigel i wasnt tryin to offend anyone lol. but if u insist, ill just have to reword it.
dachew- yea i did that.
is it possible to change a registry value if i have a hd connected via usb, like can i change values on a 2nd hdd?

this is what i want to do, but i dunno how. take the hd out of the 'infected' comp. connect to my other computer via usb and change the values that i believe are corrupted. how can i do that? cuz when i use regedit. it shows the main hdd.
