This is a work supplied labtop.
I am in trouble if I have to turn it over to my IT department because I have been going onto facebook (against IT policy)
and I have been playing a game(also against policy)
I got infected with the Vondo Trojan Horse Virus
I researched ComboFix but I jumped on it a bit to eagerly, I should have been more cautious and I should have done it under guidance.
I created a Recovery Consule and Combo Fix deleted the virus and rebooted my computer.
All was well, my system preformance improved slightly, pop up adds disappeared, google redirects stopped
all was well.
I did not post my text file to the forum, nor did I remove ComboFix as I should have.
I was just overloaded from trying to trouble shoot the virus for the last 6 hours and figured I could do those steps later.
Then I shut off my computer for the night
The next day upon boot up:
I get the STOP: 0x0000007B error
even trying to start in safe mode I cant get past the following line:
no matter which mode I choose I can not get past this error
If I enter the Windows Recovery Console I get the following prompt:


Which Windows installation would you like to log onto
(To cancel, press ENTER)?

What should I do?
Keep in mind that I have no XP boot disk
I am just a user on this computer, not an administrator (if XP even makes that distinction)
I must have it running by tomorrow morning or I will be forced to send it to IT department where they will find Combo Fix and Facebook and a Game
I will recieve a slap on the wrist at the least (doubtful)
Lose my computer( most likely outcome)
Get fired (unlikely)

If I can just get this computer to boot normally I will delete my game and adhere to all IT policies, I have learned my lesson, but I need help getting there.

Please help

When in the Recovery Console type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
