My computer is infected with the win32:vitro virus, and i cant even log on in safe mode. I've been trying to do a rebuild based on this guide: http://www.informationweek.com/1094/langa.htm
However, when I press any key to load from disk, and get the blue screen saying 'Setup is loading files' and then 'setup is starting windows'. The next screen I get says 'A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.....check for viruses on your computer.....run chkdsk/f to check for hard drive corruption'......etc etc
The problem is i cant get into windows because of the virus so can't run chkdsk, or run a virus check.
I have no input before this screen comes up, there's nothing I can do but turn it off after this message displays. Does this mean that I won't even be able to format it, or is there a way around this?
Topic should say XP not CP, sorry.
