Help! (Isn't that the way it all starts?) I have gotten myself stuck in the Recovery Console in Windows XP Pro and have no idea how to get out. I actually manually set up the autoboot to go directly into the Recovery Console... praying that it would have the same desired effect as safe mode. Here's the story:
Boss downloaded wincodecpro malware onto his PC (and paid for it! poor man!) and I went through search and spyware removal to remove all the malware. However, in order to remove that stupid little icon at the bottom task bar, I have to get to the task manager- which the spyware sucessfully blocked. So, I tried for over an hour to get to safe mode via F8 during boot up with no success. This is where I decided to go and do an autoboot in Recovery hoping it would help. It didn't.
Now, my boss's pc is stuck in the Recovery Console, wanting comand prompts that I do not know anything about.
If anyone knows how to help me here, please... PLEASE... send me a reply... you may help deter a lawsuit. <3 thanks.
