I am having several issues with my computer running Windows XP Home SP3. To explain, I will give the history.

I downloaded a virus that my installation of Mcafee detected. Mcafee told me to restart my computer to resolve the issue, so I did. When my computer had rebooted, I ran a full scan using Mcafee and it quarantined a lot of files that seemed safe, including Windows Media Player, the explorer.exe file, and the divX video codec. When I restarted again, Windows was stuck in a log on/off loop, where it would ask me for my username and password, say it was loading my settings, and then promptly log off again leaving me at the log on prompt again.

I used something called BartPE to load an OS from a cd and I copied a new userinit.exe file into the C:\Windows\system32\ directory because whatever virus I downloaded apparently deleted the original. After I did that I could log on to Windows successfully. Now, I am experiencing the following issues:

-Windows Media Player was reset to a much earlier version (6.4)
-I can't bring up the task manager through the Run > taskmgr command, or Ctrl+Alt+Del
-Many websites are blocked, including antivirus sites, help forums, and even Microsoft.
-When I tried to install Malwarebytes to try and fix my computer I got the following error message: vbAccelerator SGrid II Control / Run-Time error '0'

There are probably more issues I haven't discovered yet. I think there are many systems files missing. I'm not sure if it was the virus, or if Mcafee somehow screwed things up by quarantining files that it shouldn't have. Please help if you can!

Hi reinsterling,

I think you need to try and get through the procedures for the HijackThis forum. I'll ask if this thread can be moved there or if you will need to start a new one there. Do anything you can in the following link:

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
