Windows XP professional Service pack 2 - Dell dimension 8400
Yesterday when I turned machine on, BSOD Stop 0x00000024. Boot to safe mode ok. when booting to safe mode, i was prompted to continue loading an offending file SPTD.SYS which was apparentlyinstalled with Alcohol many months ago.
I changed the name of SPTD.SYS to SPTD.OLD. Now computer continually reboots
MBAM updated and found multiple infections and removed. MBAM now runs clean on quick and full scan.
IE browser also now appears to have been hijacked - redirecting to random websites.
I have several of the popular utilites handy but will wait for advisement and will follow instructions.
Thanks for your assistance
