I have a Dell inspirion 2200 running Windows XP. It was infected with "aniti-virus 1". I removed it using Malewarebytes, however when I tried to reboot after removal the computer hangs at the "loading your personal settings window". It is not frozen - the mouse moves. It will start in the safe mode. I have gone to msconfig & stopped everything from loading, but this has not helped. One more thing, when starting the computer in regular mode, the login window either does not appear or flashes by in a nano-second. Then it goes immediately to the "loading your personal settings window" where it hangs. When starting in the safe mode, it does stop & ask me to login. I then login, it goes to loading settings & works fine in the safe mode. Thanks in advance for your help!

You should be able to restore to the last good configuration or at the very least use the onboard recovery procedure described. The worst case scenario would be to use the recovery console (that would be my last resort).
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
