I think I may have been hit by a virus/malware. I am having great difficulty in trying to start up my computer in Windows XP Pro. I keep getting the blue opening window with a message stating "MS Visual C++ buffer overload error. If I click on OK, the system shuts down and boots up to the same error message.

I have tried to boot up in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with command com, reverting to a previous working session, booting from the original windows cd. All these trials have brought up the same message.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Do you have a non-infected computer?
You can try to boot to this rescue disk
