After combofix did its scan, and did a reboot both machines failed to boot.
When i try to boot into safe mode / safe mode command line, one of them goes into a booting loop when loading gagp30kx.sys. The other blue screens when loading gagp30kx.sys with a 07b error.
Both machines were working fine before i ran combofix on both.
I tried going into the recovery console using the Windows XP CD, but when i try to run c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe i get a "Command is not recognized" error.
I guess the only way to run this is to boot into safe more from the computer itself.. unfortunately, i can't boot into safe mode because the computers either go into a loop or bluescreen.
Using the Windows XP CD and the Microsoft instructions for "How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting" I backed up the following files in one of the computers:
c:\windows\system32\config\system, software, sam, security, default
and restored them from c:\windows\repair\.
After i did all this, the system still failed to boot into safe mode.. it would go still go into a loop!!!.
Is there a way i can do a system restore without having to boot into safe GUI mode?
Whatever combofix did to my systems there has to be a way to restoring them without having to reinstall everything!
Right now my apache server and two websites, plus another website's forum are currently down because of this..
