I fell victim to an spyware attack and after several tries of scanning the computer and getting shut down, booted the computer in safe mode where I deleted what I thought to be the culprits.
Now my poor computer will not even reboot.
not a good thing,, but I don't know where to even start to repair
any guidance/thoughts greatly appreciated

Have you got the full xp windows disk, if youy have make sure that cd rom is first one set in BIOS to boot from, then try and do a repair but normally find that a complete reinstall is best, as you get all new files and a chance to do a cleanout.
Now installed Microsoft Security Essencials on my Tower with Windows Home Premium 32bit and Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop with Windows Home Premium 64bit
