Recently my computer was infected with some malware. I used cCleaner, Ad-aware, spybot sd pro, and malwarebytes antimalware to get rid of it. after removing what i thought to be all of them, i found that i had also picked up the providefeed and thefeedwater browser redirect. i followed some steps from a reply to another poster who was having the same issue. i got super antispyware and modified the scan peramiters. i then ran msconfig and checked the safe mode box under boot.ini. I then found that my computer was unable to boot properly and after showing the windows xp logo and loading bar it would reboot again. I have already tried booting from disk by pressing f2 on startup and setting cd drive to first boot device. i have also tried taking out the coin sized battery that controols the date and saving of some settings for about 60 seconds. i would really rather not loose all my data on my hard drive as much of it is not replacable. My computer is a gateway desktop computer. my OS is windows xp media center edition.
thank you for your help and please reply.
