Hi,

Hoping someone can help me here. My PC got infected. It wouldn't run any apps. I happened upon this site, one of its topics had a similar problem. Needless to say, I went with the solution, ran Combofix, and created a log file.

The problem is, before I ran Combofix, I removed nishsysguard.exe from startup via msconfig, but didn't restart.
Ran Combofix, attempted to shut down PC, and PC won't shut down.
Tried restarting via OS, wouldn't do it. Power button on front panel of PC won't work.
I had to do a hard shut down by toggling the power switch of the power supply off.

Now, when I try to start the PC back up, it won't go beyond the XP splash screen. There is a second where I'm given a choice between the Windows XP and the Microsoft Recovery console. I can go to the Recovery console, but I don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

I'll post the log file text as soon as I can. I'm writing this from a backup laptop computer. Thank you.

Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Please see the blue text at the top of this forum, regarding posting combofix logs. Please wait till they are requested by someone helping you.

Really sorry about that. I should've read more before running Combofix. Can I still expect help? I'll wait. Thanks.

Just as an update: I tried rebooting on safe mode and it still wouldn't do it. Thanks.

If anyone's still trying to help out, I did a fixboot command on the recovery console. It didn't work. Thanks.
