First off, running Windows XP Home.

I was picking up Windows Police Pro, which McAfee saw and was fixing, when my computer completely Blue Screened, thus negating McAfee's fix. When I rebooted, the program had full reign of my computer.

I've seen lots of fixes, but they all depend on accessing Task Manager, RegEdit, and/or saving stuff to the desktop. My problem is that I CAN'T get to the desktop--it thinks for awhile, throws up fake warnings, thinks some more, repeats. There's no desktop beyond the wallpaper image, there's no start menu or task bar.

I also can't get into Safe Mode--it does the line-by-line boot and when it gets to the driver MountMgr.sys it bluescreens.

So far, it looks like all I can do is Recovery Console from the XP CD. Is there something I can do from there--access/delete the problem files, create a boot CD with some malware removal, whuh?

Thanks all--
