Hi! I initially got infected by MSN virus. I received a message from a friend saying "A foto" followed by a url that I unfortunately clicked. A command window opened after that and "Spybot search & destroy" reported attempt to change Registry by "Mhomebaxitiv" which I denied. This attempt to change the registry kept reporting for some time & I denied all changes. When it stopped I run a spybot test & removed some infections. After that I run an AVG Antivirus scan which found some "trojan" & then requested a reboot. After the reboot WIN-XP logins up to the point where user has to click to login. After clicking on user name the user automatically is logged-off & the system keeps returning to the login- point (like an infinite loop) & never enters -even in safe mode-. I managed to boot with WIN-Vista (on a second partition) & run ESET which identified more Trojans & probably some more viruses which I suppose were cleaned but still the problem holds. Could you please suggest some actions to restore WIN-XP?

It appears that you have already posted a hijackthis log here.

Please be patient while waiting for assistance. HJT Helpers are all volunteers regardless where you post a log. While waiting for a response, you should not ask for help elsewhere or make changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) Any modifications you make on your own can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, following advice outside of that post may cause confusion for the HJT Helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

If you had posted your log here, similar rules would apply. We would ask that you be patient while awaiting a reply and refrain from asking for help elsewhere.

If you followed any other advice already, please ensure you inform the HJT Team Helper when they respond to assist you with your log. This will help them know what has been done and they probably will ask for an updated log.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please start a new topic. If you have any questions, please PM me or another moderator.

Thanks for your cooperation.
