I had the virus Trojan Horse, passcapture and used Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to fix it, however now my computer just starts up, logs on and immediately logs back out to the "sign in" screen. Is there a way to fix this, or did this destroy a driver?

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: expand d:\i386\userinit.ex_ c:\windows\system32\

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
