After a run-in with MS Antispyware 2009 trying to sucker me into buying their evil product, I am now living a nightmare. (This happened after I tried to watch a movie online, so I assume there is a connection.) MS Antispyware persisted in annoying me and there was no "x" to get rid of it, so I shut down the pc. A few minutes later I tried to boot it up and logon and the nightmare has begun. When I type in my username, it says "saving settings", then "logging off". Not sure if it says exactly "saving settings", but nonetheless, seems like it is going to logon, then it does logoff. I have tried this repeatedly to log on, to no avail. In SAFE MODE it is on a loop as well, a constant on/off loop. I am fairly pc-challenged, or I would have taken advice after googling away. I do not have an xp disk and after reading several people dealing with this problem, they didn't have any luck with that anyway. Heeeeelp!!!!!! Thanks...........

Hello parrotmania,

I am moving this topic from the Windows XP forum to the Am I Infected forum which is more appropriate for the subject matter. To avoid confusion, I am also deleting the logless duplicate topic you created in the HiJack This forum.

Hi parrotmania

In an ideal world you will need an XP disc in order to get to the windows XP recovery console, unless it is already installed on your computer. Try and borrow one from a friend and post back when you have one!
